Sometimes, you need a little peace and quiet to stay sane. But it turns out too much quiet can drive you crazy- or at least make you hallucinate. The sound level in the room, which actually has the Guinness World Record, is -9 decibels, compared to the average “quiet” room’s 30.
The key to the level of silence is the fact that the walls, floor and ceiling absorb all sound, rather than reflecting it, as most surfaces do. This room is so quiet you can start to hear your own organs! That’s crazy! You can hear your heart, your stomach and even your ears! The longest anyone has ever stayed in this room is for about 45 minutes. If you’re in this room for too long it turns out to be not quite so pleasant but I would definately love to experience it for myself!
