1) It was weird.
2) It was not normal.
So I'm on here at ATS composing another lengthy reply, with Everquest running in the background (I have a trader set up to sell stuff). Keep in mind to my knowledge Everquest nor ATS had voice capability. From my computer speakers I hear something that sounds like a channel opening...like when you turn your cell phone on when it's next to your ear. A little pop with very faint static. A voice comes through from a guy I'd say between late teens to early thirties who says, "That's what mamma used to say..." then fades out. I didn't recognize the voice. Here are my reactions in chronological order: "Crap, I'm getting hacked!", then "That was odd.", and finally "can computer speakers pick up cell phones?" In retrospect, computer speakers don't have 'receivers' and I'm running a cable modem, not phone. Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a mystery on our hands. Your assessment please?
Some things that it is not:
- Substance related. Never did drugs, no interesting medication, not drinking alcohol
- Sleep deprivation. I'm fine. In fact it reallly startled me when the 'channel opened'
- Hallucination/Imagination. Please do not say I'm crazy, I get enough of that when I'm on the Conspiracy in Religion threads
- Other programs. Nothing else is running, I don't want to lose my trader on Everquest. Gotta make phat platinum. I build computers for fun so it's wacky when your own creation misbehaves.
Overall, I'm glad whoever it was listened to their mamma.

I cannot diagnose for anyone but there is a little known problem with human physiology that will product some very strange things including hearing voices.
The problem was discovered over fifty years ago. Engineers designing the first close-spaced office workstations were surprised when Knowledge workers using them began having bizarre or psychotic episodes. The problem was Peripheral Vision Reflexes and the solution then was the Cubicle.
Any time a student study area or computer workstation is located in a room with repeating detectable movement it must have Cubicle Level Protection. This is simple and FREE read ... Prevention ... at the bottom of most site pages at VisionAndPsychosis.Net.
The Conflict of physiology is that although humans can ignore peripheral vision reflexes that break our concentration, we can't stop seeing the threat movement that triggers the reflexes. We can't tell our brain to stop attempting to force a reflex.
The basics of this are explained in first semester psychology under Physiology of Sight, Subliminal Sight, and Peripheral Vision Reflexes.
That explanation is, "as the subject continues to ignore reflexes a conflict arises in the mind and builds to a mental break."
The detection of threat movement to create a reflex occurs subliminally so the victim is never aware of the continuing reflex attempts. They just experience going crazy over days and weeks of exposure.
Others in threads here have suggested a Kundalini Awakening experience. A Kundalini Awakening is the same problem. The episode created in a business office is temporary and will resolve with no treatment once the source of detected movement is removed. Long term users of Kundalini Yoga and Qi Gong exhibit life long severly altered mental states. (Linked from those two pages on site.)
When Kundalini Yoga or Qi Gong is performed in groups each person can subliminally detect movement from others near them. It's the same problem the engineers discovered.
You can link to office furniture manufacturers from The Modern Cubicle page and see the corner seating designs for computer use in Cubicles. That is full Cubicle Level Protection.
