Own voice versus recorded voice perception
This is an interesting discussion yet, so far, I see it dealing with
only one part of the issue -- that of the physics (the metric).
I recently saw an extended video of myself and it certainly wasn't the
"me" I know. Had the face been removed (with the particular
clothes ...) I don't think I would have recognized myself with much
The voice I hear inside my head when I write this text (and possibly
the voice you hear when you read it), may have an identity which is
[or has become] independent of the metric aspect. When I have a cold,
I still 'recognize' my voice for (to me) some fundamental aspect of
the identity of the voice remains identifiable, almost regardless of
the degree of transformation.
The complexity I experience here is not of the perception of the
recorded voice, but the 'identity' of my own.
