If you ever are in an area of absolute quiet, still your breathing and move not a
muscle. After a few seconds, you will notice that the silence has a sort of "sound"
of its own, a kind of empty ringing tone.
This is nothing unique, everyone will hear this, given the proper setting. An
informed person will tell you that your brain is trying to interpret the lack of
stimuli to your hearing and so creates a bit of a filler sound. Actually, there is
never, ever, total quiet anywhere on Earth. This sound actually covers something very
For a persistent individual, one can discern what is under this pitch. The next time
you are in such a situation, shout at the top of your lungs for about half a minute,
then become completely silent all at once. It will be different for everyone. Some
will hear nothing different for dozens of tries. Others might catch a snatch of soft
murmuring. A special few might clearly make out what they hear on the first attempt.
What you will hear is a voice that relays an account of events about to happen in the
immediate future. It's like a sportscaster relaying the events occurring 10 seconds
later. Such an ability would doubtlessly be invaluable, no? You will be able react to
any immediate danger, relate to people around you with greater ease.
No one would ever surprise you. As time goes on, you will be able to make out this
voice under increasingly noisy circumstances, to the point that it can be heard at
any time by just concentrating. Now, of course you are wondering what sort of
horrible catch there is for this.....
Perhaps the tone of the voice is so horrible that it will drive you mad, or maybe the
voice will only predict your death over and over again. Of course this isn't the
case, though, its a normal voice, your ears receive it no matter what, its simply a
matter of noticing. But there is a danger. For you see, there's no such thing as a
voice lacking a body.
And just like you will notice new sounds, so shall you notice new sights. More
importantly, you will be noticed.
