For the past month or so I have been hearing a very low level humming sound. No one else hears it and I'm starting to wonder WTF is going on. I hear it mostly at night and early morning, because I'm guessing it's the quiet time of the day (night). Quoting: bugging out 433091
This humming is not constant, it sounds like an electric motor trying to cycle. I've turned off all the curcuits in the house so I know it's not from within the house. I can even hear it when I'm out in the woods or at the neighbors house.
It's really starting to bug me out!
And no it's not tinnitus.
I have had the same problem for 3 1/2 years now, but I have kind of gotten used to it.
Try a Google search for 'the Taos Hum Sound, New Mexico' or something similar.
You will see it's not a new phenomenon, but has been going on for some years now.
The sound can be heard every where in the world, ieg. atm. I live in Turkey and I hear it almost every night, and sometimes also in daytime.
Sometimes it's so powerful it feels like my head is vibrating, ready to explode, but thanks God it's only seldom that powerful.
Recently I went on a trip to my country, Denmark, and there I also could hear it.
Aproximately 2 % of all people worldwide seem to be able to hear this very low frequent sound, and you are right indeed, it's not tinitus, as tinitus is described as sounds heard from 1kHz to 6 kHz due to damage in the ears.
I've had my ears and my hearing checked twice, and my hearing is perfect, even above normal in both directions of the spectrum.
But, and here is the 'spooky' part, it seems this sound is not heard in the 'normal' way, through your ears, but rather in a strange way it appears to impact the hearing nerve cells to the brain directly.
If you use hearing protection you can still hear it.
And the bad news: there is no known way to get rid of it.
Some have descibed it in a poetic way as "The song of the Earth", and others have given more paranormal explanations for it, like "It's ET's trying to communicate something to us".
I don't know if it's a blessing or a curse, or maybe neither, all I know is this:
Whatever the source is, I'm sure that we will know some day.
