Have you ever been in a situation where no one else is around you and suddenly you can hear breathing like someone is standing next to you? When you turn, there is no one there, but you can still hear the breathing. While it would be easy to think maybe there is a ghost standing next to you, it could also be a case of what is known as Autophony. Autophony and other ear conditions such as tinnitus often make us think something paranormal is happening by causing what is called auditory hallucinations. What is an auditory hallucination and how can hearing loss cause us to hear things that aren't there?
