Has anyone of you tried to venture into the study of sound? How would the world be without it? It is impossible to imagine this. It feels our days with excitement and meaning. How is sound useful to you?

I understand the deaf develop an enhanced sense of touch. To feel sound. It's hard to imagine what of the senses would be the most difficult to loose. But those that have seem to compensate for it remarkably. My goal in a music system was always to obtain a soundscape that emoted a realistic feel and intellectually by doing a bit of diy to obtain that end.
The best way to answer this question, I think, is to imagine waking up and no one hears anything. From verbalizing, to singing, to strumming a guitar to a tree falling in the woods to a train coming down the tracks. Imagine that, and then think: How important is THIS? How important is the lack of sound.
I can't imagine having to live in that kind of world. For sure, that will be one less way of learning things since you'll be relying on your eyes most of the time. The entertainment industry will be limited, considering that even so-called silent films have sounds.
