If a person's eardrum vibrates, let's say, 440 times per second for 1 second, how does the brain know its because 1 sound source vibrated 440 times, as opposed to 440 sources vibrating once, one after the other, or 2 objects vibrating 220 times per second, but out of sync with each other, or any other combination? Thanks.
