Another Mysterious Hum Has Been Reported Near Rochester, NY

Another mysterious humming noise is plaguing residents in the community of Highland Park outside of Rochester, NY. The monotonous droning sound adds itself to a growing list of cities across the world experiencing a similar phenomenon that persists without clear explanation.

Described as a throbbing pulse, or distant fog horn, residents of Highland Park are demanding an answer, or at least a stop to the insufferable hum heard throughout the day. They say the hum keeps them awake at night and distracts them from being able to focus on daily tasks or enjoy leisure time.

According to one Highland Park resident, the hum never stops. And though she says she has only found about two dozen others in her city who hear it, a recent investigation by a local news affiliate was able to record the hum in multiple locations with the same tone.

Other cities from disparate points on the globe have reported a similar hum, including Windsor, ON; Taos, NM; Bristol, UK; and Auckland, NZ. But what makes these strange sounds so bizarre is that they are only naturally audible to a small fraction of the population. The hum has driven those who hear it wildly frustrated, while most of their neighbors are entirely unbothered.

Gaia recently spoke to a resident of Taos who is, unfortunately, privy to its hum, describing it as sounding similar to an idling diesel truck engine or the low end of a stereo system – sometimes droning on for weeks at a time. She said it occasionally leads her to consider moving out of the city.

The Windsor Hum in Ontario has probably received the most media coverage as of late, with thousands reporting it to government agencies. Most residents believe its source is a massive, and somewhat clandestine, steel operation in the middle of the Detroit River, on Zug Island. Access to the island is restricted by local and federal authorities, leading many to believe the steel industry’s operations are not only the source of their sonic sorrow, but also incredibly detrimental to the environment.

Residents of Windsor say the hum is more than a mere annoyance, but that it has started to cause health issues, including insomnia, nausea, heart palpitations, and depression.

Aside from industrial operations, a number of other theories have surfaced in an attempt to explain the hum. Some say it could be caused by top-secret military programs involving ELF radiation. Others say it may be the result of subtle vibrations given off by the microseisms; faint tremors caused by the ocean moving against the planet’s surface. While others say it’s simply tinnitus — though it seems silly and offensive to write off a phenomenon this large with such a simple explanation.

For now, residents experiencing the hum continue to conduct their own research with some help from local news stations. But unfortunately, most explanations have not sufficed. As this obnoxious phenomenon continues to spread, one can only hope that their range of hearing won’t pick up on the hum if it ever plagues their local neighborhood. But just because we can’t hear it doesn’t mean it might not have negative health impacts on the population at large. It seems this may be something worth paying more attention to.

Final Words Project: The Dying's Final Words Hint at Afterlife

Final Words evidence afterlife

What can the final words, spoken by the dying, tell us about life’s greatest mystery? According to the findings of a long-term research project, a great deal.

Lisa Smartt is a linguist who, in 2012, became interested in the words spoken by the dying when she noticed peculiar changes in her father’s speech as he was passing.

“So one of the things I noticed when I was sitting bedside with my father, well the first thing was he started talking about angels in the room, and my dad was a hardcore scientist. So when I heard my tough, gruff, cigar-smoking Papa talking about angels in the room, I took notice. Being a linguist, I pulled out my pencil and pad and started taking notes. Three days before he died, he shared that the angels say ‘only, three days left,’ and indeed three days later he was gone. And what began to emerge in my notes intrigued me, and led me to the language of the dying, but there wasn’t much written. So I attended a workshop with Dr. Raymond Moody and together we established the Final Words Project.

Since the project began, Lisa has collected 200 accounts of the last words of the dying from those at their bedsides. Throughout more than a decade of analysis of 2,000 final utterances, Lisa has come to see many universal patterns and recurring themes.

“Specifically you see patterns about a big event coming, someone might say, ‘oh, the big dance is coming’ or ‘the big art show is coming,'” Smartt said. “And then people also talk about traveling, some say ‘the ship is ready’ or ‘the boat is ready,’ feeling that something is kind of moving them along that’s bigger than they are. And then another way that this hybrid language appears is someone may say ‘get me my checkbook, I need to pay at the gate,’ as if they’re referring to Heaven’s gate, so they’re bringing pieces of this world and beginning to talk with the other.”

“People might start talking about things that some family members or loved ones might think are nonsense like ‘my husband (who had died 10 years ago) is standing at the edge of my bed.’ Now to some people they may think that’s nonsense, but it seems from our research and others that there actually are visitors standing at the bedside with those who are dying and that’s not nonsense,” she said.

One particularly fascinating implication is the glimpse these final words seem to provide of what may come after physical death.

“There’s a lot of repetition, you know one well-known example of this is Steve Jobs ‘wow, wow, wow’ before he died, I think those were actually his very final words, and you can only imagine, what did he see? What did that exclamation refer to? People definitely start talking about how beautiful it is over there. I’ve come in contact with so many people who have had near-death experiences and there’s such a sense of peace, and you can see this in some people even before they die. There is this energy that seems to be moving toward some kind of new emergence or a new state of being,” Smartt said.
