> Is it disturbing to think that we hear things that don't exist?

Just to add to my response to that: of course, that's what music *is*,
isn't it?-)

Music is 'real', and we 'hear' it, but it doesn't 'exist'.

(Compare, 'Santa Claus' is 'real' to many people, but he doesn't
'exist'.)

Music is a function of us, and how we are, not of stuff outside us. So
it's not surprising that it begins in the perception of difference
tones.
