Cage on sounds in your head [another view of tinitus]

The BBC site has a summary of a documentary they're running on Radio4 on
experimental music.  There's a few audio clips of interviews, one of which
is with John Cage telling the story of his first visit to Harvard's 
chamber, which to his surpise didn't *sound* silent when he was in it.  You
can listen to the Realaudio clip if you'd like, but for the
bandwidth-limited, he told one of the Harvard guys that something was wrong
with the "silent" room, because he heard two sounds in it--one very high,
the other very low.  Harvard's answer was that the high tone was the sound
of his nervous system, and the low tone was that of his circulatory system.
