I think im insane.

I hear telephone stuff!!!!!!!!!!
I cant hear what they say but i hear people when they talk. I mostly hear the beeps and stuff, AND NOW I HEAR RADIO STUFF TOO. GOD HELP ME.. Sorry for the yelling but i am really scared of this, also some dude called my phone in the middle of the night, i didnt take it as i was scared of some hacker or something that wants to take all my money(and my parents too) -I am scared of myself and my fucking annoying life!
Sorry but i need to tell someone who isnt my nearest friends or fammily (even though this place is like my second fammily or something)

Isn't this quite common?

Or do you mean you hear telephone conversations while you don't make the call yourself?
I heard there was a myth where people can hear the radio due to their teeth fillings. The fillings would work like some sort of antenna.

But that was also busted by the mythbusters.

I dunno, but this kind of thing happens to everyone. There are a few explanations.

1)White Noise Hypothesis-
Your brain is just trying to make sense of incoming information and random fluxuations in the noise result in human like chatter.

2)Mice and Men-
It's possible in addition to having communications in the sonic realm, humans might also use ultra sonic frequencies to disseminate information. After all, we are evolved from mammals that lived underground and survived he dinosaurs.



The most important thing about this is to not panic. Human beings are complicated creatures, and we've really changed our environment over the last 50,000 years. It's natural that animals evolved to survive in the forests and fields would have trouble adapting to more civilized surroundings.

I've done a lot of thinking about this sort of thing, and it seems pretty ubiquitous.

Where are the sounds coming from? Your speakers? Your internal computer speaker? Thin air?
faces or a vase?

I have had computer speakers pick up radio signals before.

Actually, it sounds a little like schizophrenia (oh wow, I think I spelt that correctly). That's not insanity. I'm not a psychologist, though.

I hear that at night, usually it's only the refrigerator or the aerator on the fish tank. Sounds like the TV is playing commercials.

[Ewwwwww, how horrible!!! I'd rather it was the monsters under my bed. Except they're too busy with Spore.]


At least you proved you're not female. They never seem to hear anything...

J/K!

Ah, so now I know why, when sitting at the computer after watching TV (this is very rare for me) I keep thinking that I STILL hear muzzled sounds of talking people or the noise soccer fans usually produce at the stadium. this is a bit annoying, because I never know what the match result might be!

Actually. Voices in ones head has also been linked to OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). I used to get it all the time. But that was when I had depression as well. :\

Onforty. Is it like incoherent screaming.
Also irrational thinking at such a late time for someone of your age isn't uncommon. Actually even know I freak out about situations because of sleep deprivation.
If your head hurts. Are you starting puberty (Embarrassing question I know)? When I was 12-13 I used to get head aches all the time from that.

Also Tom. I used to have a microphone that only recorded radio signals. But never my own voice. :\
So at least you could listen in real time. I had to record and play back the show. XP Get a real radio SC :\

I've heard a rumor (more like an urban myth, probably) that some people have reported strange side effects from drinking insane amounts of coffee. They say that they were convinced they could see dead people and such.

Probably, this all has to do with hypersensitivity to sounds and presences around them, which sounds a lot like what you're experiencing. Have you been drinking unusually high amounts of coffee lately?

Hallucinations?

That's one of the things they call them, yes. These are a specific KIND of hallucinations, though.

Talking about hallucinations:

Sometimes, especially when I am in the forest during night time (stargazing treks, you know...), I can swear I see things out of the corner of my eye. They are usually dark, small, humanoid shapes, moving as if floating in the air, just outside my field of vision. There is never anything there once I turn my head to investigate, though. When it is really quiet as well, I can barely perceive the sound of whispering around me, laughter even. It sounds child like, as if uttered by a high pitched voice, yet still very low and kind of distant, coming out from the trees. I can never make out actual words, probably because there is none. I know for a fact that I am all alone; at least, I doubt anyone else is up at 04:00, certainly not in the middle of a deep forest some half-way up to the summit of a mountain, yet, there are times I feel like someone or something is there, hiding in the dark, watching me.

It was rather unsettling in the beginning, but I have gotten used to it over the years. These phantasms (for the lack of a better word) have never caused me any harm - after all; how could they? It is all in my head, so I have no reason to fear them.

The leading hypothesis, at least, is that it is my own fantasy, filling the blanks caused by the darkness and silence of the night. The human brain has an affection for patterns; and it will seek out a pattern even in circumstances when there is none. There is nothing to worry about - you are not going insane, your brain is just over-reacting once in a while.

It's probably just a felysian that found yet another planet with felysian breathable atmosphere. Did you see a beam of light from the sky near you?

Oh wait.. Then they must have found a way to travel to another galaxy...

Those are squirrels.

As for seeing something out of the corner of one's eye that isn't visible when looking directly at it in the dark, that can be a result of the human eye having more low-light photoreceptors covering the peripheral vision.

And witches.
