At school i had a conversation with one of my friends, we were arguing if it 
was possible to not hear, i told him that it was very possible for people to 
neglect or channel out what they are hearing.  I told him it was possible for 
your brain to be consitrating on something and your brain will "ignore" the 
electro-magnetic signals being sent to your brain.  IS this right?  If so how 
many people can shun their hearing and how often?  Is it really rare?
