One prove of human listening in Time Domain


Take a young boy for example, 5 years old. Teach him this: -


smoke, snail, stage, scarf

small, snow, story, school

smart, snack, stand, score


Today is my school sports day

The boy with scarf is smart

He stands on the stage

He gets a "Snow white" story book.


This would take some time for the boy to learn. Before he reaches full score, one would find the boy having difficulty reading the single word above one by one.


However the boy would have little to no problem reading the entire sentences, cause the boy rhymes? sings? as he read and he remembers the rhyme.




Another example 2


One, two, buckle my shoe;

Three, four, shut the door;

Five , six, pick up stick;

Seven, eight, lay them straight;

Nine, ten, a big fat hen.


Sure the boy can repeat this after graduation. But split the sentences, ask the boy to only read: -


pick, straight, fat, hen and the boy will face difficulty. Again the rhyme, which is time domain, as time is moving.




Another example 3


one two three four five

six seven eight nine ten


This is number one

You have two green apples

We have three blue pencils

He has four yellow books

She has five orange balls


As the boy learns, some times he forget, and one will notice at some point, the boy will look up and read in his mind one to ten and pick of the sound and continue to read the sentences below.


This is again, rhyme in time domain.


This clearly shows the boy makes use of time lapsing / moving to remember sound. 


One may argue the boy remembers, but ultimate it's because there is a start then later an end, where in between is the remembrance, which is time.
