I have absolutely no clue where to put this so please move if necessary....
Anywho, I've had an interesting experience occur twice this week at work. Never happened to me before or maybe I just never noticed or maybe it's
just nothing. I also don't know if this ever happened to anyone before but if plausible, it could really open up our appreciation of the wonders of
the human body.
I'll try to give as much detail as possible for you to better understand. Let me add as well before I begin that the first time it happened, I
didn't think nothing of it and I just written it off with some common explanation. It's when it happened a second time that it became a little
harder to draw the line.
Let me began by saying that I work at a factory. Now imagine a busy factory with all it's hustle bustle ( tape guns, wrapping, belts at a near
constant, loud talking). Not to mention your mere focus on your task at hand. Makes your sense of hearing very distorted. Very hard to focus on one
sound unless you put your mind to it.
We have a radio at the beginning of what we call "The B isle". Loud when country is on, not so loud when anything else is on. Very annoying I might
add. Anyway, I work manifest. I have a station with a partner at the OTHER side of the factory where the radio is at. However, not a big factory. I'm
about 200 ft from the radio. Enough to where if there is close to no activity, I can hear the music faintly. I've tried MANY times to make out any
music when we are busy, but to no avail. The closest I can get is a very rough, very distorted, split-second sound bite. Trust me. Impossible. At
least that's what I thought until now.
The first time it happened, I tried to make out what song was playing per chance I got a moment away from my duty but like I said earlier, couldn't
with all the noise around me. A song then popped into my head. Out of the blue and it won't go away and you have to sing it in your head. You know
what I'm talking about. A minute or two later of working with the song stuck in my head, there is a brief hiatus of the noise of the factory. I can
finally get to hear what's on the radio........it's the same song that popped into my head just a minute earlier. I was a little freaked out but
then I came to my senses and just said to myself that I had to of heard it through the noise and that's how it got into my head. I went to work as
normal and that was that.
You and I both know that can't happen. There's no way I could've. I could barely hear it as is with all the noise gone. I just wish I could
remember what the song was but for the life of me, I can't. Ironic isn't? And might I add that this day was a no country day.....
Now the second time is what made me interested. Same scenario. Same everything except that I remember the song this time probably because it happened
today : ) It was "American Pie" by Don McLean. I can't hear what's on the radio but this song pops into my head and I start singing it. Just like
last time, there's a pause in the noise and I can here the radio.....only to find out it was the this song. There's no possible way I could hear
this song through my normal hearing.
Now, I'm not saying saying I have some psychic power to know what was on the radio before I could hear it. Don't believe that at all. What I'm
surmising is maybe I, we, have some sort of "hyper-sensitive hearing" that would enable us to hear things we wouldn't normally hear linked through
our subconscious? Such as: I could actually hear the song while not knowing it and my mind was telling me what I was wanting to hear? Or could it just
be as simple as my brain sifting through all the distorted sounds and noises to "pull the radio out of the wreckage" sort to speak? Still an
outstanding feat in and of itself I would think.
Please ask any questions ad I'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge but I have to admit, that's all of it me thinks....and if you have a
simple explanation tell it...
