Today is the 2nd anniversary of my life-long friend's murder. I worry about this person, since what I've read about people becoming trapped due to
violent death. Since about a year or so ago, I have had someone or something that has taken up residence in a corner of my bedroom - inside a
perimeter wall, in fact - and causes this loud snap/creak sound that I can't tie to anything structural or environmentally initiated (not temperature
or humidity influenced). There's nothing in that corner of the room at all, and the "snap" has become more "confident" and interactive over the last
six months or so. At times it gets a bit frantic in fact. Yesterday, it was extremely agitated, and so far this morning, once it "woke up" it's been
very much constant (snapping every 20 seconds or so).
Can this medium tell me who or what this is? If it's my friend, then I hope she'll be able to provide me with some sort of identity information that
will assure me that it really is my friend. If it's not my friend, then I need to find out what it is. I live in a condo, and this is a wall that does
not connect to any other unit. The structure is about 20 years old, and like I said, we've been through every possible inspection of window casings,
framing, ceiling joints and all that stuff, and we can't even figure out what's being affected that would make such a loud snap/creak sound, let alone
one that is so constantly producable and consistently defined and loud.
I'm fine with it being there. I just want to know what or who it is.
PS - I have Skype and just (I think) sent a "friend request" to whoever it is that is at ATSLIVESTUDIO which I believe is the address you posted. The
Skype thing doesn't allow spaces, so I'm assuming that there are no spaces in the Skype name. Let me know what else I need to do. This is an issue
that is very pressing, and it'd be great if she can figure it out.

Your house is settling. Over time the foundation of a house will slowly sink into the soil. There is no exception to this, ALL structures do this to a
certain degree. Also, sunlight will cause this. When the sun is shining , the heat will cause siding and the underlying structure to expand, hence the
pops and creaks.
Y'know, this is what I thought for the first few months, but then the environmental factors stopped being factors, and the temperatures changed. Then
the sounds began to take on a very peculiar "personality", and started clustering (for lack of a better word) and moving about the bedroom to other
parts at times. Still, the primary area of this whatever-it-is is in that corner, and oddly enough, as soon as I announce that I think I've associated
it with the outside heat-pump unit or something like that, it'll stop altogether for up to a week, and simply not happen at all until I make note to
my wife of the fact that it stopped. And then, as if it was waiting for me to notice, it'll start back up again and be almost constant for a few hours
- like every 20 seconds or so.
Also, this is a small, two story condo, and the upstairs is a loft-overhang area, with no wall to the front, where it opens to a two story space where
the stairs are. This means that when I'm downstairs I can hear what's going on in that room fairly clearly. This noise doesn't occur unless I'm in the
room with it. Then, it's like "Hi, how's it going...", or so it seems, with the cracks and snaps as a greeting almost. It's like having a roommate
chained to the wall in that corner of the bedroom, who's glad to have company when I show up.
I have associated this sound with the heat-pump turning on, but only a few times. That means that whatever this corner snapping noise is, it can be
caused by whatever the heat-pump's feedline does on its way to the electric forced air heater (brand new Trane unit - very nice, by the way) unit that
is behind the walk-in closet on the other side of the room. Still, the sounds have clearly established themselves to be independent of the heat-pump's
activation, so it's as though the physical cause - which the heat pump can initiate - is being employed, but for the most part, that cause is not
being employed by the heat-pump feedline itself. Sort of, as if the whatever-it-is learned how to make this sound by seeing the heat-pump feedline's
effect on the wood 2x6 frame and mimics it when it wants to be noticed. This makes sense (if this is the strategy) because if it works to make the
noise needed, why invent something new? To me, that's very human in thought process and application of that thought process.
As you can tell, I haven't exactly been assuming a damn thing about this anomaly. I'm fascinated by it, since I can't figure it out without dragging a
paranormal explanation into the suite of possibilities. I believe that after the death of the corporeal body, there is human existence, but I never
assume that I'm being contacted by such existence. In my view, the incompatibilities between this realm and that realm (mainly due to how incompatible
the basic nature of existence is - one compared to the other) makes it extremely difficult for one to contact the other. It's like a blind person
living with a person who is deaf and mute. Contact would end up being pretty limited. In a case like that, the roommates would choose a means that
both could manipulate and perceive. Eventually, they'd work out a coded system based on that means. I don't know what this is, and think it'd be
interesting to see if she picks up anything.
