On the planet Earth? Sorry, not possible. Even in the middle of the ocean, you'll hear the waves ripple. On land? Crickets, leaves rustling, and a multitude of other effects. Up in the air, wind gusts are more constant, so you'll be hearing them.

The only way to get complete silence is to go deaf

Complete silence is only obtainable of you are deaf.

The only place I've experienced absolute silence (and darkness) is in a cave. Though as entropiCCycles said, you'll eventually become aware of the noises your body produces so I think you best bet is to find some white noise that you can ignore. Perhaps purchase some noise cancelling headphones (I like the ones that produce their own sound waves to negate certain frequencies) or buy some earplugs and go to a relatively quiet place. It shouldn't be too difficult to tune out constant background noise.

Complete silence would be scary.

Perhaps if you lock yourself up in a room with no windows or anything.

Hm... A room of complete silence... An anechoic chamber, if I'm not mistaken... I don't know where I have heard about these; perhaps college, as I have taken a lot of classes in audio and radio production. Anyway, in these chambers, some say you begin to hear the functions of your body; like your nervous system (so much for absolute silence, hm?).

After doing a little more research, one of the quietest places you can find on earth is the anechoic chamber at the University of Salford; the background noise level is at -12.4 dBA. http://www.acoustics.salford.ac.uk/facilities/index.php?content=anechoic

It's pretty interesting stuff. I recommend researching into it if this kind of stuff catches your attention.

I experienced it in a Yoga class, she relaxed us all into such a state that I fell asleep.

Yeah it's called being totally deaf.

When I'm in a deep meditative state I can't hear anything around me until I want them to be heard.

I rather have noise that is found in nature than noise thats man made. Complete silence is really hard to comeby

Death might be possible.

The only time noise bothers me is when I wanna shut the world out.

Lol in all seriousness, I'm really good at tuning stuff out - basically I'm good at ignoring people. Especially when I'm reading.
But I rarely experience true silence - if I ever have.
