According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“Talking wastes trace elements.”

Calvin Coolidge, nicknamed Silent Cal and The Sphinx of the Potomac, must have been onto something.


Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950) explained …

“The highest form of Grace is silence (mouna). Guru’s silence is the loudest upadesa (spiritual instruction). It is also Grace in its highest form. All other initiations are derived from mouna (silence). They are therefore secondary. Mouna is the primary form. If the Guru is silent the seeker’s mind gets purified by itself.”


The carbon dioxide reserve — and trace elements — can be lost in various ways.


According to “Why a Woman Can Outtalk a Man” (Popular Science Monthly, Jan. 1916) …

“A woman can talk longer than a man, and does so because she uses less force by a larger percentage than a man does. A German professor has proved by actual and very delicate measurements that the baritone singer uses far more energy than either. The range of voice differs greatly, so the percentage varies to the same extent, but as a general result it was proved that a tenor uses only one-seventh to one-sixteenth of the lung power of the baritone or bass. The difference on the force used by the contralto and soprano is very marked, and the contralto who sings in very deep tones uses at least ten times the force of a soprano.”

According to the same source …

“It has long been known that the tenor or soprano brings the vocal chords together and keeps the edges vibrating only by the emission of air. The bass or contralto leaves the space between the chords wider open, and has to vibrate much more of the membranes.”
