Silence is the lack of audible sound, or the presence of sounds of very low intensity. The word silence can also refer analagously to any absence of communication or hearing, including in media other than speech and music. Silence also refers to the fact of no sound being uttered by any being in a particular area or space. Silence is an important factor in many cultural spectacles, such as rituals. In discourse analysis, speakers use brief absences of speech to mark the boundaries of prosodic units. Silence in speech can be due to hesitation, stutters, self-correction—or a deliberate slowing of speech to clarify or aid the processing of ideas. These are short silences. Longer pauses in language occur in interactive roles, reactive tokens, or turn-taking. Depending on cultural norms, silence can be positive or negative. For example, in a Christian Methodist faith organization, silence and reflection during sermons might be appreciated by the congregation, while in a Southern Baptist church, silence might mean disagreement with what is being said, or perhaps imply a disconnectedness from the congregated community. Silence is also used in the form of Deaf education known as total communication, in reference to nonverbal communication and spiritual connection.
Silence - In danger - Netflix
Joseph Jordania has suggested that in social animals (including humans), silence can be a sign of danger. Many social animals produce seemingly haphazard sounds which are known as contact calls. These are a mixture of various sounds, accompanying the group's everyday business (for example, foraging, feeding), and they are used to maintain audio contact with the members of the group. Some social animal species communicate the signal of potential danger by stopping contact calls and freezing, without the use of alarm calls, through silence. Charles Darwin wrote about this in relation with wild horse and cattle. Jordania has further suggested that human humming could have been a contact method that early humans used to avoid silence. According to his suggestion, humans find prolonged silence distressing (suggesting danger to them). This may help explain why lone humans in relative sonic isolation feel a sense of comfort from humming, whistling, talking to themselves, or having the TV or radio on.
