What do we hear?

Zen: Sound.

If you try to listen to something, you’ll never hear the totality of things. Through mental effort, all you’ll ever get is a string of composites, pieces of noises that make up the whole as your attention drifts from all the different facets of sound contained within the song.

Hearing is all at once, so true listening is holistic.
