Silence, please

Environmental & Science Education

Edward Hessler

What country would think to make a commodity of silence...make it a reason to visit?

Finland.

And you may learn a little more about how they arrived at this idea in this short post on The Heretical GG.

The Finish Tourist Board's campaign "Silence, Please" has gone "mysteriously" missing so I offer this instead.

Silence. What an interesting idea.

Over at Nautilus, Daniel A. Gross has a great article on the science of brains in silence, how and why researchers began to think about how silence was once regarded as the control in experiments.  Silence, it turns out, may play some role in neurogenesis (growth of new functioning brain cells) although the results are preliminary.
