The Heavenly Choirs of Crickets

The familiar sound of crickets chirping has taken on a new dimension. Their lives are lived on a faster scale than ours, but if one were to record their sounds, then slow them down to what would be the equivalent of human time, we have a “translation” of their chorus that will transform your understanding of the natural world. Listen to the sound of crickets: that sound like amazing human choirs! Listen!

Note: the audio has superimposed cricket sounds on their scale as we normally hear them over the human scaled sound. A voice-over briefly describing what this is also shows up briefly. Imagine that these earthly heavenly hosts are singing like this (to their ears) for hours (perhaps longer on their timescale), and what does this mean?
