It’s entirely possible to listen to silence; it’s just that most people don’t. They aren’t interested or they forget about it or they think it simply isn’t doable.
They don’t listen to how sunlight has a sound when you wake up just before dawn, or how blue is a soft sound, or how summertime is a sound.
What you’ll find when you listen to silence is that it isn’t silence at all, but rather a cacophony of noises playing themselves in a decidedly melodic matter.
Everything gets balanced until it cancels out entirely. Silence is not an absence, but a gentle presence.
