This final chapter is speculative. It addresses the entrainment assumptions of universality and resonance by reviewing the natural environments of a range of different species, from crickets to whales. The idea is that sensitivity to both rate and rhythm across different species is support for assuming natural driving rhythms exist that facilitate entrainment in a wide range of other species. Also discussed are two artifactual environments experienced by humans: namely, that of laboratory studies that artificially control stimulus timing and the contemporary machine-driven environment of computers and iPhones. The latter are speculated to lead to a sporadic habitat based on fast irregular (artifactual) driving rhythms.

Keywords:   natural environment, universality, entrainment, resonance, artifactual environments, species differences, sporadic habitat, computers, iPhones
