I read through this forum a couple days ago and, since then, have failed to forget the injustice you shamelessly brought onto this forum. By stating you opinion as fact and denouncing others to help argue a point, you proved how immature and really how unintelligent you are.
As Earnest Hemingway once said, "There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." I dearly hope that one day, you will truly understand the meaning of this quote.
But, even with that said, I will gladly be the person to kick you off of your high horse. A vast majority of what you said is more or less false. I am glad you have read a couple articles on sampling and modulation, but there is so much more to it than theory. You can't understand the way sounds are processed by the human body by looking at them as just signals through a medium or vibrations in the ear. This would employ a reductionist approach, where you are completely disregarding any emergent properties arising. To state you cant hear above 22.1Khz or discern between a 44.1Khz and 96Khz sampling rate is simply untrue and I would really appreciate it if you could refrain from posting such misinformation in the future.
Just to give you a background of my experience in this field, I study transform theory at one of the top schools in the world. One example of what we do is collaborate with Neuro and Cognitive Scientists to better understand the transfer of signals from the system(s) to the brain. Further, I have designed analog amplifiers (integrated and discrete), filters (hp, lp, bp, band reject, butterworth, etc.), researched solid state physics, and done much more just not at the same level of depth.
And just on a side note, that video you posted of the coffee challenge isn't as black and white as you might think it is. The brain chemistry actually changes when told to expect a better sample. The coffee actually tasted differently for the people in the experiment.
