Your brain gets tired. You aren't sure if you are hearing a tone or if your brain is producing phantom tones on its own.
You look to your audi, who smiles and nods at you reassuringly. She senses your fatigue, but presses onward. She wants to get every little setting perfect.
"Let's try counting the tones. Tell me if you hear one, two, or three," she says. In your mind you think Yeah, like that will make it easier. But you plod on. Closing your eyes. Concentrating on listening for sounds that may or may not be there. Is she making the tones quieter? I'm not sure if I even heard that. "Two," you say with little confidence. "Three," she answers -- a little too cheerfully.
|Winners never stop running.|
She asks if you want to try it again. You tell her you don't think it would make any difference. She chuckles and says, "I forget how tiring it is for you guys!" You are tired. It's not easy being borg.
