I've had the pleasure of off-list e-mail exchange with a
list-member who was kind enough to allow me to further
sharing this exchange with others on the list. Peter has
written about his experiences with hearing aids and a
cochlear implant, and how this has brought with it a new
relation to EMFs. Never having heard of such experiences
I could only relate to the EMF meters that help visualize
fields, and maybe even offer a beeping noise for strength.
It was thought that those interested in music, sound, and
EMFs may find interest in what follows, along with those
who work to visualize these mostly invisible fields. Peter's
experience may offer a glimpse into a world of sound and
information that our bodies and minds interact with, though
on a subconscious level with regard to the EM smog that
fills space, those in music seemingly most aware of these
issues such as with fans, lights, refrigerators, and other
electrical devices being noise generators when recording.
It would seem a database or catalog of such sounds and
EMFs could be recorded for purposes of further research.

' Having a cochlear implant, I am very aware of the effects of
electromagnetics on my
body, from the little frequency resonances of my laptop to celluar
phone disruptions, high carry power lines.'
'Yes, I have a collection of my old hearing aids (behind the ear) from
past stored at my parent's house. Not long ago, I had the opportunity
look at them and the ones that I remember being large are actually quite
small now that I am no longer a child. I tried to use them but, of
my brain no longer interprets amplified sound as information. I am too
to wearing the cochlear system.'
'It is fascinating to see how they have developed over the years. I
have taken photos of them as I do not often visit my parent's house
in another city in another island) and sent them to you for your
It is possible to disassemble them and show their innards. Most of the
early ones are radio receivers and amplifiers, designed to pick up
information from a microphone worn by the speaker, for use in the

'I had a look around to see if I could find some links related to the
electromagnetic interferences that I experience when I come into close
proximity with the fields that surround us. This was the only really

further details on this as it is something that I would like an
for: why do I "hear" the fields on my computer, my fridge, high carry
cables, cellphone "check-ins" (our cellphones periodically send out
to locate themselves with the nearest transponder, and I pick up those

messages/voice calls (similiar to the effect those have on computer
and radios) and also CRT tubes, televisions. Really, the list is
Sometimes I "hear" the buzz of a field and I wonder where it is because
can't directly perceive it.'
