I think there may be 2 different ringings here. One I've obviously never experienced as I don't notice the ringing in my ears unless it's completely silent and even then I just describe it as silence and was always under the impression it's internal sounds.

I will say one thing though... it will get louder while silent after a loud concert or something..

A couple of years ago a buddy and I were out 4x4'ing around up in old cut blocks, and when we stopped to take a leak we both noticed this very odd hum that was very noticable. It wasn't a sound at all, you felt it rather than heard it. It made your whole skull kinda buzz, and you could even feel it in your chest a little.

This is in the middle of absolute nowhere in Northwestern BC, and we were absolutely baffled as to what it could be. We were standing around for about half an hour out there, it was a gorgeous day with no wind and everything was utterly still otherwise.

We then noticed that insects around us were 'whining' in harmony with the buzz. I distinctly remember kneeling down close to a bee and the sound it was making was very high pitched but harmonized perfectly with the hum. This was actually starting to freak us out a little, because it was just so pervasive and obvious.

A week later, I drove up there again with my Dad. We got all the way up into the middle of nowhere yet again, and stepped out of the truck. I stood there for a moment thinking that I couldn't 'hear' it anymore, but as I stood there sure enough there it was - perhaps not as strong as the first time, but definitely there. I was floored when my Dad also felt it, as this was the reason I brought him up there. He is quite deaf but he definitely felt he was 'hearing' something as well. Again, I can't stress that this is in the middle of absolutely nowhere.

I haven't been up there since, but I tried to come up with some explanations for this extremely low pitched hum that almost made you feel as though your ears were plugged (again, a result of the strange sensation of your skull vibrating). We came up with 2 theories as to what it was:

- Some vibration that my truck created either sonically through the exhaust or physically through the chassis... Possibly combined with a ryhthm that the surface of the road and the truck's 'cadence' produced, this kind of vibration (droning for a while) permeated into us as drove up there. The absolute stillness and quiet of the area allowed you to notice it a lot more as it rang in your ears after getting out of the truck. This was in a 1981 Dodge 3/4 ton truck, just puttering along at pretty much idle for 10 miles down a fairly evenly rough old logging road / cow maintenance track.

- Way back in town there is a large sawmill, in fact up until recently the largest sawmill in the World. They have both a massive whole log chipper that runs 24/7 as well as a dust system comprised of several very large blowers. It could be that the unique droning that these things put out (usually the intakes) was blasting up the valley, and that the final little nook we ended up in was possibly acting as the final chamber of a natural sonic resonance.

When we were trying to describe the hum to each other, that is all we could come up with. Like it was a faraway droning exhaust of a massive engine. The odd thing was that you really didn't hear it at all, you felt it and it was just right at the edge of your senses. You could feel the bones in your ears buzzing. It was almost like it got louder the more you intently paid attention to it, although again the conditions were perfect in that this area was freakishly quiet otherwise.

I have a different truck now, I will have to drive up there again soon...

wow - you should go back if you get the chance - do you have any google earth co-ordinates that you could give....maybe take a look on there and see whats around....

This absolutely DOES happen. Most everything - organic and inorganic - is hard-wired to 'harmonize.'

This need has been recognized for eons, and is the rationale for "chanting" in mystical traditions. In majic, sound is used to change the 'direction' of energy.

Just a thought - what if everything on earth starts to harmonize with a destructive, but dominant, sound?

Here are the co-ordinates of where we were parked that time...

Poison Lake Hum
Latitude 54°19'17.13"N
Longitude 126°28'53.06"W

As part of my research afterwards I came across another strange thing about this area - not too much farther out of town along this same general valley there was the largest silver mine in the World for quite some time. When doing their very modern scans of the entire area for geological surveying purposes, they found they couldn't use one of their main tools - it was something like an electro-magnetic scanner that I believe they would operate off the bottom of a chopper. There was something about the rock in this entire area that made the readings go haywire. I believe they were trying to take density readings of the earth or something. I definitely raised an eyebrow reading that little tidbit.

My whole life, I would hear a high frequency hum around televisions, not all the time, but occasionally.

Since I've reached adulthood, I hear the same high frequency hum from time to time, even when I'm not around televisions. I haven't been able to determine what causes it, it just comes on, lasts for about a minute, then goes away.

Interesting thread OP and good replies all.
This buzz has intersted me for many years as I hear it fairly constantly..

I am curious to hear what you all think of my theory that what we are hearing is the heart beat of the earth also known as the Schumann Resonance.

The resonance of Earth (Schumann Resonance) has been 7.8Hz for thousands of years.ans Since 1980 it has risen to over 12Hz. This means that 16 hours now equate to a 24 hour day. Time is speeding up!

First of all, this quote is all over the internet without any kind of scientific explanation. You can search for this and you will literally find 100’s of websites saying the exact same thing with the quote copy pasted, which basically mean nobody has a single clue about what this mean. This affirmation is aimed at people with no scientific knowledge and here’s why: There’s a small scientific affirmation at the beginning about the Schumann Resonance that look quite serious because let’s admit it, not many people know what Schumman Resonance is. Then, there’s absolutely no explanation why the Schumman Resonance can be linked to time and boom, conclusion about time speeding up. I’m sorry but that kind of argument doesn’t make sense and can’t be trusted. What’s the link between 7.8Hz to 12Hz and 24h to 16h? I’d like a proper explanation.

What is that Schumann Resonance?

According to Wikipedia:

This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonance occurs because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a waveguide. The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band. The cavity is naturally excited by energy from lightning strikes. Schumann resonance modes are observed in the power spectra of the natural electromagnetic background noise, as separate peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.8, 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.


On that note I would also like an explanation on the conection between time and shcumann resonance..

Many years ago when I played the guitar a lot more than I do now I sitting in my living room tuning my guitar.. At one point I was not playing any notes when I looked at my electronic tuner I noticed it was holding a fixed position on the G note.. This little anomoly kept me busy for a few days. I eventually traced the anomoly to my fridge which was singing a perfect G. I would never have noticed this but for the electronic tuner.

Also recently at my girlfriends house I was picking up a strange vibration from upstairs. It is fairly constantly ringing and as above I traced it to the fridge downstairs.. So my suggestion to you all would be to check your electrical appliances.. When you hear the buzz or ringing go around and switch them off to see if the source of the ringing is coming from any of these locations..

Now I am not saying these are the sources of all ringing and buzzing noises because I can hear the ringing noises in places which are really isolated and far from civilisation..

also a curiosity from last year.. I was plagued with the ringing noise constantly for months and it was driving me mad at one stage.. Me and a friend went camping for five days but on the first night of camping in the wilderness the ringing dissappeared.. I attributed that ringing to the town I was living at the time..

what i am saying is there are maybe many sources for these sounds.. Some coming from nature and some man made.. You just have to be vigilent to work out which are which..

I get this to once ina while im in NAU, it's like a loud frequency pitch. i always thought it was just my ear being weird. and really payed no attention to it.

posted on May, 19 2009 @ 01:37 PM
I first noticed it about 2 to 3 months ago. It`s not a humming noise, more like a sound of escaping air/gas.
My Doc` gave my ear a clean bill of health but did refer me to an ear specialist, who also found zilch wrong with the (left) ear. But the sound is still constant all day long. I don`t really notice it as much whilst watching TV or listening to the radio. But I do when reading a book, or just relaxing.
I`ve never worked with or near loud equipment of any kind, even my job onboard ship back in the 70`s was nowhere near loud sounds of any kind.
I can hear equally good in both ears, so that`s not a problem either.
But the sound is very irrtating.
So glad I`m not the only one who has this noise.

i too have noticed this buzzing sound. indoors it is more prevalent than when i'm outdoors, though it happens outside all the same. One strange thing i have noticed concerning these sounds is that they differ depending what city i am in but when i am enjoying the wilderness the sounds are uniform.

i came to this conclusion when i realized that the sounds become very noticable when all external sound is diminished. for instance, sit in your car with the door opened, and then abruptly close the car door. focus on the sounds as you do this and you will see what i mean. in three different cities, the sounds were at different frequencies. it is very noticable.

love and peace

I don't know how to describe it. Do you know how you turn on a tv and you get that high pitch wierd noise. That puzzles me constantly, because i could be out in the middle of farmland and still have that high pitched ringing. It sounds just like that high pitched noise that you get from the tv.

I am not sure I can really comment as I have never experienced the "Buzz".

The tibetan book of the dead makes reference to a sound like that. It says that it is the true sound of you(the spirit). I guess some people are able to pick up on it better than others.

Ive noticed the "HUM" the last 5 or so years.....whenever it is slightly quiet, I can hear it, its like its inside my head, like my ears are hearing the hum from the inside and not the outside, atleast thats how it feels.....

I didnt have it growing up but one day whilst sitting on the toilet, all quiet in the bathroom I became "AWARE" of it and ever since it hasnt gone away.

Im wondering if being "AWARE" of it means something?

Are us that can hear it somehow different inside than those that cant?

My hearing otherwise is very very good, its just that this HUM is always there.

It drives me nuts at I wonder what true silence really sounds like because I cant hear true silence....maybe Im going insane who knows.

reply to post by booda

I hear it---it keeps me awake some nights.
It's like a real low frequency noise. Bizarre.

I live in Harrogate, north yorkshire.But I don't know anyone else that hears it but me.
It's been bothering me now for about a year.
What the hell is it ??

Some Observations and Conclusions from the site linked below

All attempts to detect gravity waves using a static detector have failed, it is therefore concluded that gravity waves pass through stationary matter unaffected but interact strongly with matter which is in a state of acceleration.

The effect becomes very pronounced if the test mass is made to vibrate at the same frequency as the gravity wave, in a similar manner as one would tune-in a radio wave or a wave of any description.

The conclusion to be drawn from these observations is that the detecting mechanism of the inner ear, which detects gravity and enables humans to keep their balance, is not a static detector but a dynamic system, one in a constant state of vibration. The result is an interaction between the gravity wave and the vibrating mechanism of the inner ear which produces the Hum

It is very unlikely that all individuals have exactly the same frequency and in a population of many millions one would expect to find a spread of frequencies. It is also unlikely that the frequency at birth will remain constant for the whole life of any individual.

From the evidence it would appear that the frequency is higher at birth and decreases with age and at some point the individual can become tuned-in to the gravity waves.

This does not happen to everyone, about 5% of the population will “hear” the Hum. Some will hear it for a few years and then find it will disappear, this also can be accounted for by a change of frequency.

This may also explain the anomaly of the well known holiday effect where sufferers returning home from holiday are ecstatic to find that the Hum has disappeared, however, this respite usually lasts for only a few days after which the Hum returns to it’s previous level, and answer the vexing question of why young people with good hearing cannot hear the Hum but old deaf people can

The most important point of this assumption is that if an individual can become tuned-in to the gravity waves it should be possible to become tuned-out and thereby escape years of suffering.
Experiments will now take place in this direction

Some might find this article interesting, and could possibly explain some of the occurrences with the humming or ringing.

The kind of humm I think your referring to I've mostly associated with just the electric age. The coming and going of the sound(s) I attribute to my own variance in sensitivity. Have never tried to pinpoint the sound.

I remember being way out in the desert in central australia on numerous occasions and being 'blown away' by the silence. The air seemed thick with it as if the silence had a physical weight. No birds, no insects no wind and absolutely no noise. I won't go into the what the light can do cause thats a whole nother story.

I think silence is a word that we invented that doesn't really reflect what goes on in the real world.

Is there true silence anywhere on this planet? Or just at the ends of your aural spectrum.

I still think it is TPTB surpressing gsomething with the sound.

And I can top this. I can actually feel the sound in my ear.
