Stay Too Long Inside The Quietest Place On Earth… And You Might Just Go Insane

There’s actually a room in the United States that holds the record for the quietest place on Earth. It’s located at Orfield Laboratories in South Minneapolis. It’s so quite, 99.99% sound proof to be exact, that it often becomes unbearable… people will sometimes start seeing hallucinations after a short amount of time.

According to its founder and President, Steven Orfield said, “When it’s quiet, ears will adapt. The quieter the room, the more things you hear. You’ll hear your heart beating, sometimes you can hear your lungs and also hear your stomach gurgling loudly. In the anechoic chamber, you become the sound.” Anyone that wants to go in is required to sit down, because it can become disorienting. The longest anyone has been able to bear is 45 minutes….. until now.
