"Auditory pareidolia is a situation created when the brain incorrectly interprets random patterns as being familiar patterns."

As a social human, I can accept that my visual senses are accustomed to seeing symmetrical eyes-nose-mouth, as well as being attuned to hearing sounds resembling oral language. It's "natural."
usually I can't pick even a single word out
That is, I'm not crazy, I promise
reminds me of when i was a kid watching the static of an untuned television, i could see whatever i imagined in there. kept m,e entertained when the television channels switched off every evening.

And I think we were trolled.
Happens to me, too. Sounds like someone has a TV talk show on somewhere in the house, but there was never any break. I used to have a noisy PC, and was hearing those voices in the fan noise. Turning off the computer stopped the voices. My new PC is very quiet, so no more voices.
Every time I play noise, usually pink noise, I will hear what sounds like faint vocals behind the ripping fuzz of noise. Typically I am generating the file for system tuning, and the voices catch me off guard every time. I cannot make out any content, but there is a clear (usually) male voice, at times screams, laughs, etc. However, the vocalizations are not randomly hallucinated simply because there is noise present in the room. That is, I'm not crazy, I promise If I seek to the same spot within the file over and over, the same vocalizations (tone, pitch) repeat, especially after some sort of notable colorful deviation from a comparatively monotonous mumble. I can seek to, and repeat this especially loud vocal over and over.Is this the brain picking what it can out of a ton of data, because some parts or patterns at certain frequencies of the sound somewhat resemble voice? I'd like to learn a bit more on this, and know if anyone else readily experiences this. If you've never noticed this, I can generate pink noise and listen myself until there are some notably loud sounds resembling a vocal, and save these parts with a description of what it sounds like is being said or hummed. As I said usually I can't pick even a single word out, although it sounds like the vocal flows and modulates like a real person speaking would. Good to try to emulate to add vocals or interesting melodies to your own sound.
