Re: [ARSCLIST] Haas effect

We don't know that.

I rember hearing a radio program on prairie dogs and their abiulity to communicate using a limited number of barking and/or yipping patterns. The commentator was puzzled. I wasn't. It was clear they used different pitches.

Counterpoint. Many frogs singing in a pond. Different patterns, different notes. Other frogs must be able to pull the messages intended for them from this seeming chaos. For us to do the same, we use multiplexing.

So who's the superior listener?
