......... you can make your heart beat at a certain rhythm? ???
Srane, by reducing (or accelerating) your breathing tempo :P

Injecting yourself with epinephrine is also a very effective way to affect the heart rythm ^^; Not something I'd reccomend but there are a number of hormones that can affect heart rate.

this reminds me of the movie crank

When you can set your heartbeat equally to the beat of the background music. You hear the music and you feel your heart beating on the rhythm

I could easily try to do this with my ambient stuff :D ::)

ma Eanikran, aren't all the r's in Na'vi rolled? for instance, 'nari' has one r, and that's rolled.

try pronouncing it like a d instead of an r. that's pretty much how a rolled r sounds. :P

Actually what you're calling "rolled" is technically flipped.  a "rr" is a more percussive, rrrrrrrrr sound

>.> you americans and your "it sounds like a "d", really!" always puzzle the heck out of me.  It sounds nothing at all like a d to my ear, it's somewhere between an R and an L...but then my ear is trained, so I guess I have to make allowances ;) ::)

When Neytiri says nari she does a pretty good flapped r; a rolled r is when Grace says rutxe (scene in hometree before the sky people destroy it)--she's supposed to flap that r, but she rolls it instead. ;) And not a bad job of it, it's just rutxe is supposed to have the type of r that nari has. XD

Flapped is shorter and the tongue moves once. ;) :D

Exactly, I like to say a flapped r is the singular of a rolled r, but no one I've explained it to has gotten it like that. :P ::)

ah, okay, I get it now :P sorry for being... a little air-headed about that ;)

not sure I have heard (or known of) a Na'vi word with a 'real' rolled r- could you reference a few that should be rolled? and how would you tell the difference?

Na'vi is a little interesting here: only a flapped r and a trilled (rolled) rr.  However imagine how difficult it can be to pronounce a single flap as a vowel.  It just naturally turns into a trill ;)

>.> you americans and your "it sounds like a "d", really!" always puzzle the heck out of me.  It sounds nothing at all like a d to my ear, it's somewhere between an R and an L...but then my ear is trained, so I guess I have to make allowances ;) ::)

Well technically speaking it is a really short d sound.  It comes from an unreleased t/d in an intervocalic position (that is, between vowels).  It also says on Wikipedia that Australians do it too.

"between r and l"... now that can vary wildly considering how vague those consonants tend to be in the first place (cross-linguistically speaking here).
