I Hear Music in Running Water: Is Oxytocin a Cure for Tinnitus?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I’m talking about ringing in the ears today. It’s a condition called tinnitus that starts as some kind of physical damage to the hearing mechanism, then trains the brain to continually recreate the ringing sensation, even after the original ear canal damage is healed ... making it a mental disorder.

I it's November, eighteen, Wednesday daily emotions. Here I'm John Emotions. Thanks for listening. I was well, you know, they're trying to the second quote unquote lockdown in many cities and states around America. Trying to avoid that topic, I pretty much stay inside unless I have to. Basically just go to the grocery store on occasion, and when I do that I go late at night, mask up, hand sanitized when I'm done, wash my hands when you get home, that whole bit. So I'm not dripping too hard. I just don't understand, like people that insist on continually living as this, as if there is no pandemic. That's weird, unless, of course, you're shut in and yeah, keep living like that. It's funny, I guess. My point is the second lockdown is purely due to the...

...people who didn't wear their masks, and they're the ones who are most upset about a second lockdown. Well, you dumb focks, if you would have war your masks the first time, we wouldn't have a lockdown the second time. Dirt, it's all. We're talking about masks and pandemics today. So today I'm going to talk about this thing called TNIGHTAS tinitis. I've heard it pronounced both ways. I say tonights because I used to hear commercials all the time when I was a kid and they said do you have tenitas? So I'm calling it Tonightas if you want to look it up, it's spelled Ti and and it US tenitis. It's basically ringing in the ears. Before I get to that, I got to back up because here's the part that prompted me to start looking into a couple of other different things. When you go to a therapist or psych doctor, they always ask you. One of the questions is do you hear voices in your head? Do you hear voices people...

...telling you to do things? And I do not. I have never. However, I hear music in running water, sometimes in machines, almost always in running water, a shower, a trickling river, things like that, not waves, not trying to think, basically running like a Fawcett, a shower, a river, and in that stream I hear highly articulated musical notes that are musical to me, person from the Western Hemisphere, so it's obviously western music and very pleasing. Like I'm not a musician, I'm a drummer, but I you know, I know music and it's super elegant. I wish I knew how to play a piano so I could capture some of the songs I hear in the music. When I tell my doctors this, historically...

...their response is something like Huh. Anyway, apparently it's not dangerous, just super weird. And the good news is I'm not crazy. So says an article I've found on the Internet. So I found article on the Internet that tells me the cause of this music that I hear. Man, I should have got on the Internet earlier and found out much sooner. So trigger warning. If you happen to have any kind of paranoia, schizophrenia, paranoid schizophrenia, please stop listening to this episode and move on to the next one. So here's what caused, or is causing, apparently, my music in my head. It's electronic harassment. The music I hear in running water, apparently is electronic harassment. Somebody around me, or is following me for most of...

...my life, is shooting an electronic weapon at me that, when I turn on water, is able to pick up the sounds. Apparently that are shooting unheard of beautiful music to my brain. So I think if you're not familiar with electronic harassment, it's what happens to people called targeted individuals. Don't don't look that up. I'll just tell you real quick so you can avoid it. And I'm obviously being facetious. So, yeah, what I'm looking for the cause of the sinking, not the singing. There's no words, but the music in my in the my head when I hear running water. Yeah, I run across this. So this is the thing in the paranoid schizophrenic world, because most paranoids, skidsphrenics have a high powered brain. It's kind...

...of disengaged from reality, but it's still highly intellectual and can craft very complex thoughts. So in the paranoid schizophrenics world they've crafted this Boogeyman, or not a Boogeyman, but the protagonist in their story is the targeted individual themselves. And you can be targeted for harassment from a number of different ways. This one's kind of interesting, electronic harassment, basically. And then what they do is they fall onto existing technology. And sure there's some super high tech stuff that can detect you by the way you walk. Gate Technology obviously listening technology and things like that's highly advanced heat detection. I mean there's so much that's been advanced even in the past ten years. So, like any good conspiracy theorist, they take those facts and mix them in with their mythology and create this whole idea of electronic harassment targeted individuals. But the other really interesting thing I found was a thing called color harassment. Again, do not search for...

...this on the Internet. I might lose you down a rabbit hole. So color harassment is when a paranoid, schizophrenic person thinks the other, the other person them, are out to get them by the use of colors, and it's kind of funny because it's all these fucked u s colored combinations like Magenta and teal mixed together, not mixed but you know, side by side, rainbow flags and things like that. They're like super freaks out people that feel their targeted individuals being harassed with color harassment. So I digress, but that's an interesting world. I think it's fascinating, but I can easily get sucked into it. It starts to feel really be really fast. So targeted individuals avoid that term on the Internet. Avoid color harassment and avoid electronic harassment. So anyway, what turns out is the sounds I hear in the water are...

...another form of Tinitis. So if you hear ringing in your ears normally, sometimes that can equate to hearing misplace noises when you hear a different sound source. And tonightus is a trip, especially because, by all indications it starts with some kind of damage to your hearing, to the actual mechanical working parts of your ear, such as loud music. Of course I've played music. I'm a drummer, been playing for since I was a little kid, but I always used to me sintimes the time I was like fourteen or fifteen, playing and live rock bands here in protection like straight up foam little ear plugs block out much of the noise. So I don't necessarily think the damage came from that directly. Maybe repetitively. There might have been enough gigs in a row where I just didn't wear them, but that seems odd at it's doesn't...

...seem right, and pretty much more them all the time, the ear plugs. It could have been damage from a concert. There were several times when I was young and would go to a concert and a lot of times, the gigantic bass speakers or just the the overall house sound speakers are right near the front. They're so loud that nobody stands near them. Well, that also means that there's less people there. So if you want to get to the front of the stage, that's kind of a soft spot right there in the crowd. We can go up near the speakers. Well, well, if you're thirteen year old kid, you kind of get stuck in the soft spot and you get your head pounded by loudspeakers for an hour and a half. Again, that might happen maybe twice. So here's what happens with tonight has. Apparently that mechanism in your ear starts triggering a response in your brain to the point where, even after the trauma to the ear, mechanically speaking, has healed, it's now become programming in your brain. So it goes...

...from becoming literally like hearing damage to what you'd almost call a mental disorder, because it now it's if it's in your brain, it's not part of your ear and it's just the way your brains working. I guess, what else do you call it but a mental disorder? So here's where it's get really interesting. Back in two thousand and sixteen twenty seven, down in Brazil they did a small study on tonightas because they started to understand that it is a a brain disorder, a mental disorder if you will, and they took fifteen people and gave them oxytosin. In the familiar with Oxytosin, O x y t OCIAN, oxytocin. So many in the medical or therapy field called oxytocin the cuttle hormone. So it's the hormone that our body, our brain,...

...excreets when we feel in love, if somebody gives you a hug, if you're petting a cute dog or a cat, you start to get this oxytocin releasing your brain much like dopamine release. Every time you get a notification. Well, every time you feel loved, you get oxytosin. Now they can manufacture oxytosin and give it to people. That's how they did the test down in Brazil. So they gave fifteen people oxytosin and they found that it actually fucking works for the tonitus. They're not sure how it works, but this small study showed it works. So they recently like it's the end of two thousand and twenty. Right now, November, just starting a study in New York that should be done in the next six months with thirty people and they're going to, you know, eliminate any flaws in the test and move forward with the same thing. People with Tenitas give it them and comes in a form of a nasal spray, so it's not even that difficult and Oxytostin is...

...relatively cheap to produce. So the great thing is if this new study works, we could have a cure for this tonitus by the middle of summer next year. So weird thing about tonight. As for those of you who don't have it, if you don't think about it, you can function just fine. Like when I take my hearing tests, I can hear all those notes. It's a strangest because a lot of times that the tone I hear in my Tonitas is similar to one of those hearing test tones, one of the super higher frequency ones that here in the headphones when you're a kid. It's like that. But if I'm not thinking about it, I don't hear it. I A lot of times I'll listen to noises or whatever when I go to sleep, kind of washes it away and normally just doing something so I don't notice it. It's not that big of a deal. It's probably why they just don't study that much. Like you can live with it. It doesn't affect your hearing it, but it does affect your mental status. That...

...kind of stresses you out. If you don't want to hear it, you end up trying to block it out. Like imagine the incessant dog barking. If you just move to a neighborhood with incessant dog barking, it would drive you fucking crazy. Well, people who live there three months don't even notice it. They would notice it if the dogs stopped parking. So to me I would notice it if the ringing in my ears stopped for the better. Sure, probably relax a lot, a lot easier, but when I'm saying is I can still function with it. But I just found it funny. That's like oxytosin. That kind of explains it. I don't think it's any secret that I don't feel like loved, like there's nobody in my family that makes me feel love, like nobody tells me they loves me or gives me hugs or anything like that. So it makes it no, it's been that way since I was a kid. To my mom was the type of Hugger who like kind of a light hug, pat you on the back, Pat Pat like a church acquaintance hug. I never really like felt cared for.

Not whined about him, just saying it's a reality the way my brains been programmed. So that's why I think it's interesting. If so, maybe if you weren't hugged enough as a kid and you don't feel loved, you have a lack of oxytocin in your body and your mind. There for tonight is gets worse. So I'm just wondering anecdotally, if you have tonight as do you also feel unloved? Is there a correlation? So, anyway, let me know what you think. I'll talk to you tomorrow. And now back to the wall.
