I will show how I am affected physically when I'm near a TV.
The conclusion to draw is up to you.
I am using my patch cable for my guitar, which is connected to a device called guitarport. It allows me to record myself directly to the computer.
However, instead of plugging my guitar in, I am using my hand.
Link to the video
The sound you are hearing is an effect, and when there is no input, as you'll see, the effect is not heard. When there is input, it will be heard.
(I can change the effect to any sound, so if it's hard to hear, I can make it acoustic instead).
As you see in the video, when the tv is off, nothing is heard. When I hold the end of the cable, you hear little pops, but the effect is not
I then turn on the tv and you can start hearing the effect in the background. Something is there being picked up. Just for this sake, let's call
it a "wave". I then turn off the tv again and the wave are not heard. I hold the end of the cable again to show that I am also not generating
I then turn on the tv, while holding the cable. As you start to hear the wave, I move my hand closer to the tv and the wave seems to get louder. I
then start touching the cable with my neck and cheeks and back of the neck. You can still hear the wave. When I move the cable away from my face,
nothing is heard. I then turn off the tv, and you don't hear anything anymore.
So I have some questions:
What are we hearing?
Is it heat?
If so, why don't we hear it when I touch my hand?
Whatever this "wave" is, is clearly affecting me somehow, as you can only hear the sound when the tv was on, regardless if I was holding the cable
of if it was just close to the tv.
