The quiet of Yom Kippur is indeed impossible to explain to someone who has not experienced it. If you are ever lucky enough to be in a place where there are no means of transportation (including airplanes flying above), no machinery, no sounds from electronic devices etc.. savor that - and then imagine that you are in your home - and all around you this silence prevails for 24 hours.

Even if you have no religious affiliations, or decide to spend the day watching videos like many Israeli's do on Yom Kippur (behind tightly closed blinds), the energy around you is contagious and creates a feeling of introspection that in my mind it the whole point of Yom Kippur to begin with.
