Re: HUM_FORUM: Re: HUM_FORUM: Re: HUM_FORUM: Hum
- Colin this is an interesting theory. The otoliths are supposed to be there, and they can dislodge and get into the wrong place in the ear. But other than that I haven't been able to find anything about any other type of calcite crystals in the ear. The only way to evaluate a low calcium diet would be to have a large sample of hum hearers try it and compare this large group to another large group that maintains a normal intake of calcium. This is the only way to determine if the reduction in the hum is coincidental to the low calcium intake or is in fact caused by it. From what I've read on this forum some people just stop hearing the hum, or hear it less intensely. I do agree that there must be some biological factor at work here. Why else the age-specific onset?If only there were enough of us perhaps medical researchers would take the initiative and study the inner ear of hum hearers to determine if there were some structural or functional commonality.WilliamOn Dec 9, 2010, at 7:44 PM, mack_colin wrote:
- "non-visible" = "exotic"? Magnetism is invisible, electric current is invisible, yet the principles of electromagnetism are the very thing upon which our current civilization is built. If you drive a car (motor propelled by rapidly oscillating electomagnetic currents) or use a cell phone you are utilizing invisible energy. I think it's quite reasonable to entertain the concept of non-visible energy/radiation as a possibly global source of the hum. This does not seem like a "desperate" hypothesis. And I can only speak for myself, but I "feel" the hum in a very static-y, electrical way as much as I hear it, in a way that no other "sound" has ever affected me. We are bathed in an unprecedented sea of various types of radiation previously unknown to us as a species. The fact that people on this forum report hearing the hum in extremely remote locations suggests to me that the hum may not derive from mechanical vibrations.

Can it be mere coincidence that both the onset of the hum and its increased frequency rather tightly follow the same curve as the proliferation of "non-visible" technologies?With respect, I would say that it follows just as much, the rise in overcrowding of the planet, with attendant industry, travel, planes, heavy trains, heavy lorries, power plants, ships' engines, etc., etc.So MANY extra bits of VISIBLE technology...we need to look at that before going tomore exotic ideas.I know folks get desperate, but we need to think very carefully about the FEASIBILITY of obscure theories....It all needs far more experimentation, to find out what is going on,and we need to remember that any one area studied will not necessarilyreveal the answer for everywhere else.It's clearly a very complicated puzzle, that ought to be solved by now.Best Wishes,R.M.,LFNSH
