Silence Is Creepy

We’ve been packing our home (somebody should invent 7zip for physical objects as well) and today all gadgets except my computers left to the new place. My computer speakers left too. Television is gone. Radio too.

Now… the creepy thing is that it’s pretty darn silent here. And it’s creepy.

It’s amazing what void can achieve.

  1. Same here… just too much noise everywhere. I have essentially stopped listening to music, being an active musician myself… which just means that I play a lot of music. That’s just about enough noise… ;)

    Btw, if you look outside at night, there’s also just too much light. You don’t see the stars most of the time (at night).

  2. I think it’s creepy that someone who lives in the city always have a source of noise. Family members, neighbours, cars outside, the computer. We almost never have any moment of silence.
    Our noise tolerance is pretty high in the modern world. I don’t think it’s such a good thing. :)
