Tinnitus as a Marker

This 2015 article was based on conversations at my Mandela Effect website. From researchers’ data in that field, I wondered about other connections between tinnitus and paranormal activity.

This is extremely speculative, but – like other questions raised in my Broome Theory articles – it may be time to start considering these “fringe” possibilities, if only to rule them out.


Tinnitus, EMF, and GhostsTinnitus could be another marker, signaling a time or location (or both) where the “veil between the worlds” is thinner,  or access points between realities are available.

This could be a temporary opening or something more permanent.

I’m especially interested in whether changes in tinnitus – a persistent or irregular ringing in the ears, commonly affecting about 10% of the population – are just more indication of increase EMF, or distinct markers in themselves.

Of course, I’m not the only person to question whether tinnitus and EMF might be related. For example, people have been discussing the connection at sites such as Tinnitus Talk.

In fact, I may be fairly late to this party, as I’ve found a study that concludes, “Our data indicate that tinnitus is associated with subjective electromagnetic hypersensitivity.”

Have paranormal investigators seen any connection between tinnitus and activity at haunted sites?

I have no idea, but perhaps it’s something to consider. (Then again, it may lead us nowhere. After all, coincidence is not always causation.)
