I take your silence to mean it won't.

I'm beginning to think you're Maynard James Keenan.

I'm not gonna lie--we've a lot in common.

Dear Jackstar,

Will it ever end?

Kind regards,

AZRAA
If... If the acoustics are synthetic (microwave transmission of sound), they might be significantly reduced if you live low to the ground around forest between two really big steep hills.  Or if you can stay near random sounds.  Some train sounds are a little random.  A cat purring can be somewhat random.  You might find an oscillating fan which is not correctly calibrated so that it doesn't turn with rhythm, but just turns whenever as it goes 'round and 'round.  That can help, possibly.  Sound-proof rooms can help - you could volunteer to be a DJ at your local community radio station.  Upholstery, thick drapes, tapestries, full bookcases, bedding, over-stuffed pillows, large bean bags, carpet... all help.  A padded cell might not be a bad idea, lol.  However, I know from the little cushioned gymnastics room that a padded cell is no guarantee, especially if it's on flat land.

Some people find technological relief in creating a momentary spark.  Like, sitting in the car and pushing the lighter in over and over.  Or, pushing a little lighter on over and over.  The momentary spark, I hear, interferes with synthetic transmission.

Also, it might gradually build up and get worse around age 40-ish.  Then less as you age.

It will never end on flat land, around motors/engines/noisy florescent lights/rythmic fans, up high, when you face solid building walls, near high tension lines or neon signs.

You can let a faucet or two, drip in such a way that it's not real rythmic.  You can get two or three battery-operated clocks with ticking second hands.  I have found that there is some sort of randomness in the way the second hands of each clock never quite match the other.  One always gains on the other and vice versa.  Not sure how this works, because they always say the same time.  But anyhow, the clicking of the variety of seconds hands which are mis-matched and never quite in any synchrony, makes sound which can be a relief because it has randomness.

On the other hand, if you just have one clock with one clicking second hand, it could make matters worse.

This post is chock full of all sort of free, practical DIY info.  You might want to make lists out of it for future reference.

I don't know what things are like in your country, but when no one is home, go turn the circuit breakers off for a couple hours.  It'll make you feel better.  But don't get caught or it'll just cause problems.  Set a battery-operated alarm to remind you to flip them back on well before your people are expected home.
