Fitering of senses

Scott McCloud captures the fitering of senses in this frame from Making Comics (2006 p.35) and I've been thinking about it. There was a study I read about that demonstrated that people were influenced by sound when thinking about the condition of their skin.

So this experiment demonstrated something of the filtering process for me. By exaggerating the higher frequencies that were heard by the subjects, they influenced how they heard the sound of their fingers rubbing together and assumed they had dry skin.

Citation needed obviously but it fascinates me that audio can influence tactile sensation. Again I'm reminded of the view attributed to Steven Soderbergh by Tim Callahan in his introduction to Lost Dogs. In film audio provides context for the visual information.
