I might be accused of click-baiting with titles like this one, but it nevertheless seems appropriate.
For the past year, I’ve been living in a condominium situated above a loud and busy section of town, replete with constant traffic, roof heaters, refrigeration units, and so on. The noise is relentless, and therefore I can’t hear the Hum here. Seeking some respite from the cacophony, I spent the night with friends whose house is situated near the end of a long cul-de-sac, and borders on a large forest and campground.
The Hum was very loud and unmistakable. And when I stepped outside, it stopped. It seems that my only complete break from noise in my world is when I am alone, outdoors, in a large forest. I feel thankful that I am not tormented by the Hum but rather intrigued by it and its unusual properties.
I will be making some technical announcements over the next few weeks regarding changes surrounding Google Fusion Tables (which drive the Hum Map and Database), as well as my upcoming trip through Europe where I will meet with Hum hearers in a number of countries during July.
