This is not a maddening type of experience, or even annoying...just sort of uncomfortable and tormenting. I'm sitting in a room. It's silent and while you'd expect it all to be cold and drafty with just the silence looming overhead, its not. It's not hot, but very stuffy and stale. Even the silence seems to not be there, but there is nothing to be heard over it. It's small and dark and while I know there are others who are more reachable than I perceive them to be, they are not there.
