I wondered what aural stimuli could create this effect of simultaneous
absorption. I think that you would have to get into wavelengths, which
could conceivably be achieved by condensing or expanding *normal*

Another, thought was if in one ear certain sounds that are easier to
anicipate or to recognize and that don't require attention were being
received and in the other ear, the sounds or words are coming at a
certain pace and/or pattern as to enhance the message being perceived in
the other ear, in such a way as to create this aural document.

Fun thought!
