One does not always know what one does not hear but only reads or talks about ..... The sound might be mechanical .... but would be beautiful to hear all things ... The ocean, the birds singing, crickets, stadium cheers, and the music that could only be felt ..... now to be heard .... if I liked the same songs then through vibration .... then I would want to hear them sang or played for the ears It would be overwhelming ..... and one would have to work up to it ... laughter, a conversation, the basic sound of a movie without having to read all the captions ..... Individual instruments ..... an acoustic guitar, piano, harp ....flute etc ... a babbling brook and the wind through the tree filled with leaves .... a walk in the woods and the crunch of old leaves underfoot ... walking along a shore line and seeing, feeling and hearing what could not be heard when experiencing it before ...... the sound of a well tuned engine ... (sounds stupid .... but hearing it for the first time would be great) .... The crackling of fire and the sound of a train on the tracks .... the spraying of a hose ..... the sound of your own foot steps ... the animals that one would find in a zoo .... that list would go on and on ..... so many discoveries ..... and a new way to process it .....
