D.Deutsch made a provocative (perhaps politically incorrect to some :-) claim and Bruno took a stab at testing it. I don't think he has stuck his neck out on any far-reaching inferences on this, his post only reports that he found the same difference in subject responses between two groups. Right now the nationality/tritone effect has a better status than Cold's been replicated with a different observer, equipment, location and subjects. As much as I might like to tell the results to go take a hike, they've proven more than I have. Greg -- Gregory J.
