One can use the sound of silence (the primordial sound, the sound of the mind, or whatever you want to call it) very skillfully, by bringing it up and
paying attention to it. It has a high pitch that is quite difficult to describe. Even if you plug your ears, put your fingers against your ears, or
are under water, you can hear it. It is a background sound that is not dependant upon the ears. We know it is independent because we hear this high
pitched, vibrating sound even when the ears are blocked.
I hear the high-pitched frequency constantly; to a lesser extent when a fan or television or the like is on, but still do if I pay attention. When the
external sound level is low, the high-pitched noise is all but intolerable.
I am not at all buying into the idea that this is the "primordial sound" or "sound of the mind," for it is an exceedingly unpleasant distraction
which seems to make thinking more difficult.
Agreed: it is not dependent upon the ears. The sound seems to be ringing within my very skull, and even when I plug my ears, it continues. I'm only
18 and never go to concerts or clubs so I doubt it's hearing-loss tinnitus. My blood pressure is 110/70 so that can be ruled out as well.
My intuitive feeling is that it has to do with the constant transmission of energy in various forms.
I hear the noise outside, though it is much, much fainter. I remember vividly walking alone outdoors at about 1 in the morning -- no cars, no animal
noises, silence outdoors for once -- and hearing that infernal squealing noise, when previously I had believed it only existed indoors. In my area,
all places outdoors have electrical wiring either threaded through the ground or strung from pole to pole and tower to tower.
Fiber-optic cable, and its constant transmission of information and therefore energy, has just this month been connected individually to every single
house in my neighborhood. The noise has seemed to have gotten louder and more persistent and to have acquired a subtly different tone since then. The
whole world is becoming an enclosure of wiring which, in addition to bringing us the benefits of electricity and Internet and all the rest, is
creating an ever-greater inundation of various forms of energy upon the human body and in particular the human skull.
Or, more optimistically, perhaps the energy is more or less well-confined to its wiring and though we can hear the noise of it that energy is not
leaking to bombard us. The idea of "DNA upgrade" triggered a reflexive derision from me but, well, what the hell do I know, or any of the rest of us
It could well be DNA upgrade, or have something to do with pole shift, or have something to do with the weakening of the magnetosphere, or, hell,
maybe it really has been there all along as the sound of silence!
I don't have the faintest idea, beyond knowing that the noise is intrusive, irritating, and that I instinctively recoil from that noise as being
sinister and harmful.
