However, IMO, it is possible that poor HVAC combined with traffic, industrial actitivites, construction, or other factors could (in theory) combine to create a very specific audible hum which could be amplified by the structure itself just depending on the aspects of the resulting hum and the overall architecture and condition of the building.
These hums we have been talking about last for extremely long periods of time with no known source, with continuous audible attributes, and people hear the hum for miles and miles around whether they are inside a building or out.. Low frequency noise is, in my mind, very mysterious and not well understood. It has recently been theorized that ELF noise from the auroras in the upper atmosphere (for example) can actually become amplified by certain kinds of rocks in the earth's crust making the auroras audible.. Again, this is NOT well understood but many people have claimed to have actually "heard" the auroras and many scientists now believe that so many people have come forward with similar stories about this that there must be something to it. My stepdad claims he once could hear high pitched squealing, hissing, and popping directly correllating with changes in the extremely active auroras he saw on one specific evening a few years ago..
The results of experiments carried out over the past year have confirmed that the Hum is caused by gravitational waves. These waves are generated by the high voltage electrical grid supply interacting with the charged particles of the Earth's ionosphere.
The interaction takes place at a height of about 250 miles which allows the waves to cover a very large area. Reports obtained from Hum sufferers show the effects must reach a distance of at least 50 miles from the pylons, and probably much further. No increase in Hum level has been observed in close proximity to the pylons and on any given day, the Hum intensity is the same over 100's of square miles.
The effects of gravitational waves on the human body is unknown, the only information available is that collected from Hum sufferers themselves.
The first and most obvious effects is the perception of noise which is the result of the gravitational waves interacting with the body's own gravity detector, namely, the inner ear. Because of this connection to the inner ear, some of the symptoms such as nausea, headaches, hot and cold flushes, are akin to travel sickness, while other symptoms such as tingling muscles, heart palpitation and memory loss show that a very complicated interaction is taking place, probably involving the bodies own immune cells
Tests show the gravity waves pass through metal unaffected and this now reveals the reason why all attempts to block the Hum with metal screens and Faraday cages have failed.
The history of the Hum in the UK coincides with the expansion and upgrading of the National Grid system which now conveys electricity at 400Kvolts.
The variations in Hum level give a clue to its origin, for it has been observed over many years that the Hum level has a propensity to increase during the early hours, at weekends, and times of national holiday, all times when the load on the grid is reduced, that is when the electric current is at a minimum and the voltage is at a maximum
It must be clearly understood that the Hum is NOT a noise in the normal sense of the word, it is a perceived sound generated inside the head of the sufferer. Only a small percentage of people can actually "hear" the Hum but the cause undoubtedly effects the population at large
Most sufferers start to hear the Hum at about the age of 50 with a two thirds majority of women. This is clearly the result of changes taking place in the body for the presence of the Hum has been established on a national scale for some forty years.
Still needing explanation is, why the gravity waves increase in intensity upon passing through a building, particularly through the roof, and why the shape of the roof and ground on which the building stands is of such importance.
There are an increasing number of individuals who experience nocturnal disturbances, the regular occurrence of which is sufficiently powerful to remove them from deepest sleep. This growing population of nocturnal risers neither suffer from the physical symptoms normally associated with the aging process, nor are among those unfortunates afflicted with clinical insomnia. In many cases, the victims of the malady are quite young and otherwise in complete positive health. So insidious is this social manifestation, that many are stimulated into fantastic speculations. Nevertheless, we perceive an ever increasing population of new HUM victims whose numbers grow daily.
Conspiratist writers have associated the HUM with military projects such as SANGUINE, or HAARP; concluding the insomnia to be a test of psychotronic weaponry on the national population. Such symbols of the subconscious national fear might have too long worked their way into the hearts of the susceptible, were it not for the simplest kind of evidence concerning the HUM. Curiosity and the need to know far exceed any orthodox standards, filters, or approvals. The absence of extensive measuring tools does not preclude us from making our assessments on an overwhelming phenomenon which academia continues to ignore and deny. Gleaned from the few writings and from numerous dialogues with qualified observers, we are free to share our own subjective consortium of data on the HUM.
But what is the "HUM", and what are its effects? What causes the HUM, and why has it seemed so very impossible a phenomenon to objectify? Are there means by which to obtain hard evidence of the effect at all? Can we indeed discover those connective touchpoints between our subjective experience of the HUM and its true sources in the external world? Is there a measurable continuum between our innermost experience and the outermost world? These are hard and straightforward questions demanding equally hard answers. The HUM effect is indeed a "phenomenon-extraordinaire". The HUM is a subjective experience, a deep and permeating tone which comes in pulsations. But it finds connectivity in an external stimulus, one which has not successfully been found by most researchers.
