B flat UniverseMon, July 28, 2008 - 8:41 AM
All this came to my attention after an online discussion about the high pitched humming that many people, including mycellf, hear in our heads pretty much all the time. Some folks think it is part of a government program of mind control, which i think extremely(!) unlikely, some folks think it’s god talking to them, some folks think it is the essential sound that informs the universe, and some folks say “it’s tinnitis you idiots, seek professional help”. Anyway, i was in this discussion about this, and decided to see what note it is, and the one in my head is clearly between a B and a B flat. I remembered a recent story about the universe hum being in that key so googled “B flat universe” and found all of this info and more. Not a new agey site amongst them, all scientific observations. I like that, and am surprised by it. Cool huh? I sure think so. If you have a hum in your head, check the frequency.
This reminds me of the Quan Yin Method of meditation, or "contemplation of the sound vibration.”
Here is a good NPR story on B-flat that doesn't even mention the fact that it is the background note left from the big bang, which is a biggie. .
This one was written before some of the newer scientific findings were found, and is still very interesting:

I hear this high pitched hum constantly. Sometimes there are changes, additional "squeaky" layers that flare up for a while. It's not disruptive, it just runs in the background. I've been wondering my whole life what the source really is.
There are also visual oddities that I see whether my eyes are open or closed. When I was little I used to think of them as atoms.
Yoga ChantMy Yoga experience is always complete when ending
class chanting in B flat. It just feels great.
To B-flat or not...Its odd but i've never been able to isolate the sound that i seem to hear. Right now it sounds a bit like the summer chorus of crickets and katydids that i remember from my child hood. my mother asserts that this is the sound of my own nervous system, and i tend to agree that this is a neurological phenomenon. My uncle, a talented jazz musician, teacher and healer, suffers from a similar condition. He tends to agree that it is a neurological thing. Both of us have some hearing damage from loud instruments, and there may be an hereditary component.
When I was young I did have experiences of something like "a bell ringing in an empty sky" which was a clear note that would sound, swell in volume and then seemingly fade to a higher pitch. This was always accompanied by an overwhelming sense of nostalgia and deja vu.
There is something comporting in the thought collapsed stars, Tibetan monks and alligators all vibrate at at close the same frequency. The noise in my head however is probably not the sound of emptiness or the echo of what ever God was humming when he made the world.
I seem to have trained myself to perceive things in the key of D major or D minor.

Thank you for sharing this information, Ghoti, thank you for adding to it.
This Winter I plan to hunker down and enjoy hibernation by tinkering with harmonics and resonance in music implemented in neural reprogramming. I am my own test subject. For the last few years I had felt stuck at a certain point and could not go farther until I had access to the right equipment in a safe environment and the time to take myself to the next level. All that is in place now and notes will be taken. I have this silly notion that it really is possible to re-train the brain once the right keys are found.
|didnt shakespeare have something to say about this ? or nearly ? thanks, bard, this info is awesome !|
Very interesting. I wonder what frequency the whales and elephants tone in most often.
And I wonder how much the frequency of machines and the electrical grid interfere with our natural abilities to hear other tones which are more balancing and resonating to our state of being. Maybe that is why we all feel so much better when we escape to the forests, the desert, oceans and quiet places. Or scared- some people find that fearful.
Thanks for sharing Wil! more please (-:
Wil, this is cool cool cool. I also have always been able to hear this. Along with a few other amazing and trippy mental explorations I embarked upon as a small boy, I can remember becoming aware of this tone, and I would loose it and then remember it was there and go searching for it in the quiet of the night as I lay in bed terminally awake sometimes. Recently it has become more pronounced with changes in texture and volume and I have come to my own conclusion (unaware that others might be thinking along the same lines) that it must be one of three things and then other thoughts provoke other possibilities as well. Looks like I'm on the right track. Lately it has become an almost constant reminder that I am not alone.
1. Angels singing (who says angels are harmonious?)
2. Tinnitis (but then how to explain my having to search for it?)
3. Left over noise from the Big Bang (seems completely plausible)
As a child I thought of it as the Sound of Silence, since I could usually only hear it in the dark of night, when everyone was asleep and there were no distractions. The Heart at the Center of All Things? The combined energy interaction of our Collective Unconscience?
LOVE the graphic.... peace to you, Steve
