Maybe you do hear real things and you just have a need to rationalize. Or maybe you have a haunted fan. Oooou spooky.

Perhaps your brain is just working on a different sampling rate which allows you to hear them. 'Equidistant letter sequences' for instance allows a signal to be heard in the noise of the Bible. Whether or not the signal is a legitimate message is obviously something left up to interpretation. Who knows? Maybe aliens are encoding messages into the whirring noises of your fan. I'm sure more bizarre things have happened in an infinite universe.

I believe that the word pareidolia would fit equally well with audio events as with the visual, which is the context it is most associated with. (There is probably another more specific word but I haven't had enough coffee to go searching.)

Just like we see faces in random visual patterns we can also hear voices/music in random frequencies. Our brain just abhors information that it can't seem to process so it fills in the blanks.

I hear bluegrass music when certain fans are running, especially at night if all else is quiet. My son hears classical music when his shower is on. It really is a very common thing. I know this because I spent several days once asking everyone I know if it had happened to them. ALL of them said yes, at one time or another.

As for hearing them when you perceive yourself to be "sound asleep"; even while asleep your brain carries on doing whatever it chooses to do without any input from your concious mind. Do the rest of the noises in the environment suddenly stop when you sleep? No, and neither will the perception of voices from the fan. You still hear them, your brain decides whether or not you will respond to them.

If it troubles you try using a different fan or leave some other source of sound on as background noise: radio, tv. Anything to distract your brain. There really is nothing to be concerned about unless the voices are telling you to do harm or something along that line. That is a completely different scenario.

The one thing I have heard about fans is that you can truely hear your inner voice when you stop a fan with your tongue on the intake side.It will resonate loud and clear and externalize in the form of a screem. With fan practice you can get in touch with your inner voice. or so Ive heard.

Lincolns thought of the day. :)

A little advice, don't throw excretment at a fan. Especially a Steelers fan!

Hey, I tried the fan trick. It actually took about 5 inches of my tongue off. Now all I have to work with is about 3 inches. Damn!
