Unfortunately Tom, debating the qualatitive nature of various senses is a
bit of a pet habbit of mine, ---- I used to have raging arguements in
Aesthetics (philosophy of art and beauty), tutorials, on the artistic and
representative qualities of senses like smell, ---- then for my Masters I
did an essay on synaesthesia and functionalism, which investigated the type
and quality of sensary information someone who was synaesthesic got from
As you said though, these really aren't things which should be discussed on
this list, ---- though they do very much have a baring on how to represent
an entire environment by the medium of sound, ---- as audio games have to.
I'll stop rambling now though!
Beware the grue!

You bring up some good points. Some of which I haven't thought much about.
However, as you said if we continue on with this discussion we will
eventually get into a discussion of cross sensory representation and
theories of functionalism which is way beyond what this list is for.
