A professor of psychology & Sociology sent me a
message about these furnaces

I don’t know much about that field of the sciences
but apparently this is a big deal.
Because, they (presume?) know earlier humans
(140-150k+) to “not be very intelligent”.
That ‘modern’ humans aren’t found 250k yrs ago.

So, my take from that, is that the “brain science”
has some reason to believe cavemen aren’t as
intellectually capable as we are.

I’ve only studied electro-chemical synapses from
the physics perspective. My assumption was that
brain size had a lot to do with that. Which would
mean that cavemen were Smarter than us.

This news (to me) means that I now have to
question my theory that intellectualism is
related to brain-size, and brain power capacity.
My personal theory was based solely on the
complexity of neural-networks.

With anomalies, theorized as ‘sometimes simpler
is smarter’.

There is now additional information I need to obtain
from the science that studies the actual thoughts
derived from these physical reactions.
(always seemed pointless to me.... no offense to those
  who choose to follow that path.)

I have no intention of focusing a great deal of time or attention
to psychology. I have a basic understanding of human reactions
to external stimuli, and reactions to situations and other people.
That’s about all I care to know of that stuff.
But I will seek out the answers to a few explicit questions,
Such as why they believe cavemen were stupid.
I’m sure there’s some logical (or illogical) explanation for this
belief. [i call this a belief because none of them ever met a caveman]

I welcome any thoughts on this subject.
Clearly, they knew more about fire than a pyrotechnician
(was my choice of professions after high school)
and the 4 thermal scientists I have ran this by so far.
Though one did somewhat confirm my suspicions,
By citing a convection study of frequency specific heat waves.
The study concerned asphalt, but there is a distinct correlation
between temperature and frequency of the heat waves in air.

A study on asphalt and heat and frequency?

the Chlem engine saga started with an observed anomaly in this area [hot asphalt machine self running for considerable time after shut down.

   might be interesting to see that data ?

Edit for below comment

Did you just write "flame jet Pulse it creates"

those are some of my favorite words..

since we're talking  resonance and heat ......' flames and such]
Johan 1955  sent me another resonant heat flame thingy

chasing 1HP per CC it seems ...[I hope]

maintaining the standing pressure wave thru variable tuning

When you’re looking at it, it’s just a bunch of data relating the temperature
of air to the thermal expansion, then analyzing the solar diffraction patterns.

The correlation comes from thermal conductivity of materials, and along the same
stretch of road studied, the rate of bouyancy of the air packets takes on specific
frequencies, based on air temp, and the amount of sunlight (heat input) hitting it.

I understand this is not the actual infrared thermal radiation, but rather a visible
anomaly related to bouyancy. (same principle hot air balloons operate by).
But it is interesting that certain frequencies of convection and heat packets rising
is evident by the studies.

Different asphalt mixtures produce different frequencies of visible distortion.
And this is related to the thermal energy transfer at the asphalt-air interface.

What I really want to figure out, is if this effect (within the caveman furnace)
is in any way related to the frequency of the flame-jet pulses that it creates.
