It was very difficult for me to believe him due to my lack of comprehension of his experience. Now, it turned to be myself who has been experiencing some "sound halucinations". I've been listening, especially at night, in quiet places, but without any regularity, sound of cathedral bells, distant, very similar to the way churches ring their bells calling people to the mass. I have also listened to these bells at work, in the afternoon, immersed in traditional electro appliances noise (like computer fans, air conditioning system, which are supposed to be continuous and stationary noise). Coincidently (or not) a kind of visual halucination has also manifested during these monthes, not periodic or regular at all, an experience of seeing some small white balls which passes along the superior corner of my left eye. This has happened about 6 times in the last 4 monthes. I have never experienced these things before, but I am sure there are reasonable explanations to them, such as the ones running in the list.
