So /x/ for the past few days I have been having problems sleeping, I've been hearing a low pitched vibrating. I looked it up on google and turns out it's part of a worldwide thing called the hum, and one in 50 can hear it. In kind of worried, I read stories of suicide and self mutilation to try and get rid of it so far it's not that annoying to me.
What's your take on the hum /x/?
At night and early in the morning, I heard it like 5 minutes ago but it stopped. I believe it's localized to my home. Not sure about that hoe far part. Strangely I can get it to stop by touching the desk next to my bed, can't find anything that could be causing that sound in or around the desk.
I think its just your brain being deprived of stimuli, and thus it generates an mental sound. The mind and body desire to be stimulated, and when the environment does not produce the proper level of stimuli, it will compensate and seek it out. Basically you go into your own mind like a dream just to keep your consciousness going. Your desk represents doing work, playing video games, or anything that occupies your mind. Tinnitus is an example of this, but the hum is all in your mind, and hearing damage is the major cause. Well that drugs, psychosis, or schitz type disorders.
I can't tell if you are trolling tho, but anyway, when you sleep you are almost exclusively in your own mind, and so as you drift off or come back from it, you become aware of the internal "noise" that your mind is making. My best guess is that its like RAM in that the random noises/thoughts of your mind keep your consciousness running, so it functions properly.
I used to hear what sounded like a female's voice in my head when I was younger. I have no idea if it's related to this, but I just thought I'd pop in and share. Want my advice? Follow the sound.
holy shit you are retarded. if touching the desk stops the sound then something I'd vibrating your desk. a fridge? a pump? an air conditioner? central air? a fan or the hard drive in your PC? fucking look around if it bothers you that much
Trust me I looked around, couldn't find anything. Touching the desk stops it for a bit then it starts again, it's a psychological thing.
No but sometimes when I look in the mirror my face contorts and a demon voice speaks to me, kind of like Gollum with his reflection in Lotr. I'm still in control of my actions but I don't know, it's creepy.
i've heard a hum on and off since my childhood. my mother has mentioned hearing it as well. i think it's just the sound of background electricity and other stuff like that. i think it's just a matter of our brain usually filtering out the unnecessary noise and then when we hear it for the first time accidentally, we are able to focus in on it by choice.
i live in a city so there's all kinds of electronic devices and appliances in homes in the immediate area. and i actually have power lines going right in front of my house, but i'm curious what kind of environment you live in?
Been dealing with it for years. Anti-depressants and relocating 800+ miles away from my previous location helped for a while, but it returned within a few months. Just stick with the daily struggle, try to keep your mind distracted as much as possible so you don't focus on it.
