Some people "hear" low frequency rumbles constantly. I am one of them. I 
suspect it's a form of tinnitus. It sounds like a large truck idling a block
away. It's fairly constant. The intensity varies, but not the frequency. Is 
it possible for electromagnetic radiation to cause physical vibrations in 
the enviornment? Could there be a commonplace cause of the low frequency 
noise? Could some people be translating infrasonic pressure waves into 
an audible form - like crosstalk in the brain?
