So for the optimists it should go down.
I believe that Diana has found that in some cases indeed it goes down.
I my case it has gone up one step of the the scale. However, I am not a real pessimist.

Subject: The climb of absolute pitch
Several older persons who have had absolute pitch in their young years experience perceiving a pitch by at least a half-tone (minor second) higher than what it actually is ? a phenomenon that the French calls the "climb of the tuning fork" ("montee du diapason"). Since I am one of those unfortunate individuals, I have been wondering what its physiological explanation is. Can anyone on the list offer one?
