For a long time it has been accepted that the use of white noise is helpful in the communication of the afterlife. I'm not a scientist so I don't know how this works, but it's a theory that is so popular it has spawned several movies.
I recently posted a little story about white noise on my Facebook page and was surprised when several people responded and said that they had also heard music, chattering, and unexplained noises in their home when they had their air conditioner or other white noise maker running.
Is there something to this?
We have a very large dehumidifier in our basement. It's noisy. over the course of the past few weeks I have been shocked to hear what sounds like talking and music coming from the room that the unit is in. In fact, I've walked down the basement steps several times and heard voices speaking so loudly that I have assumed that one of my kids was up. Nope. Nothing there.
Others have talked about hearing low, mournful music. They've mentioned the sounds of violins and a melody so sad that they've been brought to tears. Someone told me that the voices have been so loud that they've almost been able to pick up parts of the conversation.
One thing is clear: the noises can't be heard in any other room in the house.
