Have you ever wondered what it's like to hear nothing? Well appears it's not quite possible, when there's no sound you become the sound - your heart beat, your movements... your thoughts. That would definitely drive ME crazy...
A study out of Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis suggests that we need some kind of noise. Their anechoic chamber is the quietest place on earth, absorbing some 99.99% of all sounds. With fiberglass wedges 3.3 feet thick, the room has almost no sound … except for that of your body. So says founder Steven Orfield, in an interview with MailOnline:
"When it’s quiet, ears will adapt. The quieter the room, the more things you hear. You’ll hear your heart beating, sometimes you can hear your lungs, hear your stomach gurgling loudly.
In the anechoic chamber, you become the sound."
