If the computer can not tell the difference between a picture file and a
then it will have a nervous breakdown and crash. You can prove this by
lying to the
computer and deliberately misleading it, just rename the picture file
picture.mp3 and see what happens. If looks like a picture file to the
you're telling it that it's a music file, the contradictory information
confuse the poor machine and it will die.
There's no contradiction in information that relates to the difference between audio and
visual experience. You could open either the mp3 or gif as sound or image if you used an
app which would allow opening raw data. It used to be easier to do that, but our freedom
and control over the software that we run has steadily declined over the years.
Right. And you have no choice whether to experience acoustic pressure waves as sound or
images. But if you have synasthesia you may experience both.
