Finding evidence for any such huge difference requires first stating the
salient context with great exactness.
There might not be much difference in the *act of hearing*, but very
great differences in the emotions aroused or sustained, by listening to
Gregorian chant, modern jazz, a tennis game, sentimental poetry, death
metal rock, angry frantic Fox “news” jock verbiage, companionable
romantic story-telling, etc.
Suppose someone wrote: “There is a huge difference in the mind between
being kissed tenderly and being punched in the nose.” Would it really be
necessary or useful to ask “Is it possible to provide a reference to a
published study, supporting your above statement”? Isn’t that just
On the other hand, I think it would be very appropriate to ask “Is there
a published study detailing the neurological and neurohumoral changes in
people being kissed compared with people being hit hard in the face?”
