Ever Wonder What An Auditory Hallucination Sounds Like?

By on May 22, 2013 // Science // 1 Comment

The above video claims to be an audio representation of auditory hallucinations, based on descriptions given to the video’s creator by individuals who experience them.

“Content of this presentation is all based on what clients have told us they hear through my work as a mental health outreach worker.

This is designed to provide the listener with some idea of what it might be like to experience auditory hallucinations.”

I can’t vouch for it’s accuracy, but put on some headphones and give it a listen.

From Wikipedia:

“There are three main categories into which the condition can often fall: a person hearing a voice speak one’s thoughts, a person hearing one or more voices arguing, or a person hearing a voice narrating his/her own actions. These three categories do not account for all types of auditory hallucinations. However, individuals may hear voices without suffering from diagnosable mental illness.”

    I can vouch. This is fairly accurate, although honestly, my auditory hallucinations were never this terrifying.
    I backed off my drinking, started having social interaction again and had my meds upped and I’ve not had them since, though I fear I’ll have them tonight, based on that voice that clearly says, “I can seeeee youuuuu…” Creepy.
