Some folks think we're fools for buying tickets to see a woman sing above the range of human hearing. When she sings, we can feel the vibrations of her voice in our chests as her face stretches and sweats. We know she is singing. Those who mock us buy tickets to hear notes that they can know, evaluate, praise, criticize, and compare. But we prefer not to know so much. We hold faith that the woman's voice is perfect, unprecedented, and supreme.

Fascinating. I wonder what happens to the body during her subvocals.

You know, I've never thought about it that way. While I'll still probably not buy tickets to go, I'll think about those who do go in a different way. Nicely done.
