    Klausner carried out the second experiment in the park. Around six in the morning he went to the park, stood in front of a large tree, a beech tree, and he placed the machine on the ground. He then went back to his house and got an axe. He put the earphones on his head and switched on the machine. He listened for a moment to the faint familiar humming sound; then he picked up the axe, took a stance with his legs wide apart and swung the axe as hard as he could at the base of the tree trunk. The blade cut deep into the wood and stuck there and at the instant impact he heard a most extraordinary noise in the earphones. It was a new noise, unlike any he had heard- a harsh, noteless, enormous noise, a growling, low pitched, screaming sound, not quick and short like the noise of the roses. Klausner stared in horror at the place where the blade of the axe had sunk into the wood flesh of the tree as he realized the pain was internal, the tree expresses the pain which was heard by him through his sound machine.
