What does "it" refer to? Our eyes do not let us perceive with this kind of precision. An unmusical person can recognise an octave and, perhaps once instructed, a quality of tone, that is a C or an F-sharp.

The sense of hearing gives us a remarkable connection with the invisible, underlying order of things. Through our ears we gain access to vibration, which underlies everything around us. The sense of tone and music in another's voice gives us an enormous amount of information about that person, about their stance toward life, about their intentions. something sounding like something that in fact it is not What does "it" refer to?
