The World Hum Project Needs Expert Assistance

Please share this widely on all your social networks. I’ve never asked for that before. The time has come to ask for specialist help in bringing the World Hum Project to its conclusion, which is to conclusively identify the source of the World Hum and then discover how to ameliorate it. I’ve helped lift this upward so far, but now it’s time for the next generation of Hum researchers to step forward. Note that it is time-consuming, brings in no profit, and subjects oneself to mild online abuse.

We need people with post-secondary credentials who can help move this project to a serious private or university laboratory where it can be quickly solved. Once that happens, I can retreat back to my previous life. I won’t quit until then.

For anybody who has a degree in History, especially Post-Industrial Revolution, we have a serious and immediate job that needs tackling that could change everything. You’ll need full-text access to the earliest Times of London.

If you work in a facility that has a 24/7 MRI, preferably an fMRI, and you have significant influence over scheduling, then we need you.

If you are a medical doctor (MD or equivalent), we need you.

If you are an expert in non-profit marketing, we need you.

If you are a medical audiologist with expert knowledge of tinnitus, your expertise would be a major push forward.

If you own high-quality recording equipment, which includes as an example the family of Zoom recorders, and you are able to use Audacity or some other sound-analysis software and you happen to be travelling around North America, then we need you.

For those who have made it this far, you should realize that the Hum Phenomenon, and this project, have appeared seriously on most of the world’s major media, and across more than 30 countries. This phenomenon has now been normalized, and serious people are becoming interested.

Let’s solve it.

    Dear Dr. Glen,

    I posted on here some time ago experiencing the hum. At the dismay and frustration perhaps of some other fellow hum patients on this forum, I put my situation down to the Refrigerated trucks that carry frozen foods creating a “bass” type noise from the trailers (Was looking for an answer so sorry folks for any offence).

    Now I cannot say for sure if this was indeed what I was hearing due to changes in location and circumstances but I have discovered another auditory medical condition that is now finally being recognized within the medical faculty a condition I definitely know I have now.

    Misophonia is an auditory condition were sufferers “hear” and become irritated with different sounds. I suffer badly from this Dr. Glen and wondered if this may be a new consideration in your great research for us.

    Could it be that us special auditory sufferers can hear sounds no one else can??

    Just thought this might be worth a thought through your research?

    It is important WE find an answer for this!!

    AND please don’t give up on this Doctor

    • I would say the auditory processing disorder i is actually a symptom. People with ASDs (Autism Spectrum Disordees) including myself are more sensitive to stimulation of any senses light, sound, touch, taste, etc. EM Frequencies are sounds by definition, so myself included among about 12 other people with similar disability are over stimulated in our brains by sounds from any source. Living creature, especially in this case human animals have a mechanism in our brain that helps us filter out constant stimulation of our enviromental stimulus when it is of the same intensity for prolonged period of time and lets us forget it, at least most do except people with ASDs. We never forget we are wearing an itchy sweater, or the tag bothering our neck or that water was on our skin, anything uncomfortable or comfortable we feel it until it goes away, i believe that everyone has a breaking point of overstimulation even if people with ASDs are more sensitive compared to “normal” people, so this effect or “new” disorder of misophonia is just a pathetic attempt to dismiss what is really the issue of environmental sound pollution which only political powers will be able to do anything about. I am for any disorder that is able to be treated without meds, as it allows people to get the accomodations they need to function normally again in society (unfortunately we can’t all be hermits)

    Hi Thanks for your commitment.

    By your experience, do you recommand to try to record the hum’s audio footprint from an indoor or outdoor environement ? I own very good equipments and I live remote from noisy areas. I can try both but I want to setup multiple microphones etc so if you have useful suggestions, it will be very welcome. I plan to use a large parabolic antenna I kept for this project, thinking it can improve the signal amplitude (by placing a mic in front of it, instead of the receiver).

    Thanks Jess

      Hi Jess,

      That’s difficult to answer with regards to equipment tests.

      I suggest maybe Dr Glen and the forum look at Misophonia. This is a definite auditory condition that teh human ear and brain will make happen.

      Equipment won’t help unfortunately at the moment. I can tune guitars, hear someone eat a pack of chips…even hear them breathe from distance.

      Was speaking to Leeds University UK about this regarding an experiment they conducted on sound and what human ear response was….I scored off the scale!!! Please look at the condition Misophonia first to rule this out before equipment tests.

      Hope this helps.


  3. Hi Dr. MacPherson,

    Your request has been shared on our Twitter (@alberta_hum) and Facebook (AlbertaHum) feeds.

    Thank you.
