Why some people can 'hear' voices of the dead

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Scientists have identified the traits that may make a person more likely to claim they hear the voices of the dead.

According to new research, a predisposition to high levels of absorption in tasks, unusual auditory experiences in childhood, and a high susceptibility to auditory hallucinations all occur more strongly in self-described clairaudient mediums than the general population.

The finding could help us to better understand the upsetting auditory hallucinations that accompany mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, the researchers say.

I reckon it's all down to how one interprets the vibrations hopping through their ear hairs. Our brains are also wired to recognize patterns or assign familiarity with even the unfamiliar, personal bias and experience obviously playing a huge role. For instance, a lot of folks, with enough white noise, can pick out things that, in their mind, sound familiar. They'll swear it sounds like the tune or lyrics of a song, they'll assign melody to it even though there technically is none.

With enough imagination, you could practically sing along with your window ac unit... 

Not that I have. 

When anyone was listening.

Apophenia is the auditory version of Pareidolia. It is quite common and usually triggered by white or random noise. An uncommon version happens without stimulus. Apophenia has many variations; some mild and some very intense.
