Here's: a thought. I happen to have quite interesting hearing. When I was younger I caught the concussion from an exploding water heater scarring my
ear drums, afterwards strong winds would lead to strong earaches leading to more lesions on the drums and, sometimes, hospitalization. I've had tubes
in my ears aplenty, and, as a kid, I'd sometimes dig in my ears and had caused some of the tubes to fall into my ears scratching the drums. Hence,
the hospitalization to remove them. Further, for some old world reason I'll never know, my mother would clean wax out of my ears with the curved end
of a bobby pin, that, and my childish jerking around while she did, caused further scratches to the drums.
As a pre- teen, the earaches and difficulties went away. What resulted from it all is what they call extreme bilateral tymphanostrophy. That is,
exteme scarring and lesions of the eardrum.
I've seen my eardrums on color monitors before, typically, a healthy drum is yellowish in color and smooth, uniform, and free of defects. Mine are
yellowish, but, are coated in an intricate web of white lesion lines all over them. On account of this, I should have little to no hearing.
It's not uncommon for old people, factory workers and the like to have these lesions, but they suffer hearing loss due to it. Mine make theirs look
mild, yet, on account of my hearing, not only did I merit articles and research by hearing professionals, but, became highly qualified as a Sonar
Operator because I could hear Acoustics that instructors and seasoned veterans could not. Sometimes finding things which the advanced computers did
not readily detect with considerable enhancements, like a submarine trailing a merchant on a training audio meant only to let you hear what that
particular merchant ship sounded like.
As it happens, my lesions are unique, they form in such a way as to amplify and enhance sound rather than to distort and destroy it. How long it will
work to my advantage, who knows, one wrong lesion and I'm deaf.
I have the ability to hear ultra high frequencies out of my left ear and ultra low frequencies out of my right, with average sound ranges permitted by
both ears. When tested I not only accurately responded to the test machine's internal pre- test, but also recited to the hearing doctor's their
discussion about where they were getting their lunch from, both machine and doctors are located outside of the sound proof booth were I was testing. I
was in the back corner away from the door and in a group of testers on my first test, and alone for my three or four follow up tests. You'll be
surprised what kind of noises you can learn to ignore.
For instance, did you know the Soviets have transponder arrays located in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans which send out rhythmically tuned
frequencies in the 40-60 hz. range designed to agitate humans by targeting these signals so as to bombard the Continents, particularly the US, with a
constant 24/7 transmission of these signals. Being in London, you may be close enough to these signals to be affected by them.
For the National Oceanographic Institute I found a gray whale mating with another gray whale and her one yr. old cub was alongside her. This is odd
because the cub usually seperates by that point and goes off on it's own, and had never before been known, much less recorded, to be with the mother
during mating season, much less the actual mating process. We trailed it for 3 days of constant recording and sound files. The really interesting part
here is that I heard the whales. It took the others a special tape deck slowing what I heard down 2-4 times normal speed to hear the ultra- low
frequencies I was listening to. It took some convincing for me to get them to analyze the trace I was hearing.
Once, I even heard and located a merchant ship 500 km. out from us. It took zooming in on the trace I was listening to before the faint harmonic lines
of the transmission could even fuzzily be seen. It took surfacing the submarine and getting satellite confirmation that, indeed, I was right in what I
Now, as a youth, I learned early on that electric wires hum, especially at night when most circuits are closed (lights are off, TV's off, etc.) the
electricity sort of backs up in the lines awaiting to either be discharged locally or be called back into the power grid for distribution elsewhere.
Now, electricity, like water and all things in Nature, is lazy- always opting for the path of least resistance. That means it will stay stationary
unless given a path to travel which doesn't require much of it. Which is why you get a loss of power the further from the power source you take the
line. There is such a thing as too much cable, electricity simply doesn't want to do the work involved in all that travel.
What's more, televisions and the like will emit a hum after they are turned off simply because they are discharging residual energy in the components
and lines. And, unless unplugged, appliances, tv, and the like will retain a minimum charge.
Add to all of this that Sound, like all things in Nature, is lazy- always seeking the path of least resistance. It will build in the corners of rooms
where it will merge, amplify, and sound as if it comes from everywhere at once. The closer your head is to the center of the room, the more peaceful
you will sleep. Take my advice and try it. I don't know the source of your sound, but, if that doesn't help or soften it, then the sound is doubtful
an external one. You may well be in the early stages of tinninitus.
Not that analog, digital, and cavitational (noise created by the displacement of air molecules. Ie. fan blades, motors, rotors, propellers, both in
the air and submerged in liquids)noise, etc., blanketing the world don't really help much either.]
