Excellent forward thinking!
I understand what you are implying here, and with regards to the bigger picture of things and to yourself also... this is something that really makes
me wonder. I will see if I can keep this in laymans terms for all of the other readers out here, but since my profession deals with sound on a
somewhat elaborate level, I'm gonna try and keep it simple and hopefully add to the discussion. Let's see what we can come up with here regarding
A baseline measurement is taken within an absence of sound or external influences on vibration (preferably a vacuum of some sorts with very little
mass or matter) and from here on out that is referred to as "nothing" or "the empty" for future testing.
For the second test measurement, we flood the recording device with a combination of pink, brown and white noise (at maximum amplitude) which
encompasses the full spectrum of frequencies available, for the sake of testing.. and that becomes "sound" for future reference.
We listen to "the empty" and don't hear a thing, we measure the output... increase the volume or amplitude and measure it again with
instrumentation capable of picking up bandwidth beyond our our. We sit back and listen, we as humans still might not hear a thing.... I agree with you
So then we run the "sound" through the same neutral environment... and we as listeners hear something, so we increase the output further until it is
almost unbearable to us in an ear-splitting way.
So in theory, this is what it would take:
We measure "the empty" and then somehow produce the "sound" within the void, decreasing and increasing the sound to come upon a duality of sorts.
Sorry for the pun, but this really leaves me on the fence as far as the possibilites go... it seems to me that it is almost a catch 22 in the realms
of current thinking.
Looking forward to your ideas,
