Many people hear this type of sound when they are experiencing a "___" trip, and I believe I have read instances where people are meditating and they
hear the same thing as thier Kundalini "rises".
In Terrence McKenna's book True Hallucinations, 2 brothers experiment with psilicybin and dimethyltryptamine, and associate a low buzzing sound like
insects to be a hallmark of the experience. They also associate the sound with a certain internal philosopher's stone, where the drugs and the
particular noise, when combined together, lead to certain changes in the body and consiousness. His brother, when exposed to the sound one of the
first times, shouts in fear "I don't want to be an insect!" or something like that.
People on Don't Mess w/ Texas report seeing various beings, some of which are said to create reality through language. There may be a link between
the hum and this phenomenon too. My fanciful thought is that the sound is linked to the Om in Yogic thought: language becoming reality certainly
seems similar to a "sound of creation". Although its also possible that being creating language through sound is entirely a result of a combination
of visual hallucination, auditory hallucination, and synesthesia.
Some may write off such notions as nonsense of people on drugs, but I believe such studies give a level of insight into humanity that would otherwise
