Here is an interesting consideration:

Static noise has the most rich, complex texture but no pitch.

A sine tone has the most defined pitch but the smoothest, least complicated, most minimal texture.

Listening to either for a prolonged period isn't as nice as listening to music. Both of them become monotonous in their own way. Although you can definitely meditate to a sine tone. But what about static noise? It's so random and complicated that the temptation is just to switch off your brain and it all becomes one homogeneous texture.

Don't say static, please say White Noise or Pink Noise... sorry just a bit OCD and that gets on my nerves.

I meditate to silence, it's the only thing that can completely calm me down in this world anymore.

I just thought static noise encapsulated all white noise, pink noise, etc... I have ringing in my ears so I can't hear total silence :(

Ahh never heard of that problem, but "static noise" seems more like a general term. I like to think of it as more of a dynamic noise honestly, white noise and pink noise can randomize and generate differently if it wants to.

Also never heard of constantly always have ringing in your ears... you ever see a doctor about that by any chance?

so basically what do you want to know?
i don't understand this thing about static noise and sine waves, what's the matter.

:Although you can definitely meditate to a sine tone.
What does this mean? You can "meditate" to a sine tone? lol

I love the sound of distortion. Heavy guitars or distorted synths... Yes. :3

No such thing as total silence anyway. There's always something vibrating, producing all kinds of sounds at different intensities, in different places, that you'll eventually hear (even if you don't notice them). You'd have to eliminate all mediums where the sound can travel if you want total silence. So don't feel sad.
