What happens?

Our sense organs perceives the attributes of the certain objects compared to the other objects’ attributes. For instance, if we touch a lukewarm object, after having touched a hot one, we will feel it cold; but we also feel a sound deeper if we hear it right after a higher one. When you use the Velvet Harp, you will feel your fingertips more soft and silky as you sense the softness of your fingers compared to the hardness of the chords.
