Most of us have seen various Escher pictures of structurally-impossible objects like the never-ending Penrose staircase -

Now that's disturbing enough for me - but THIS auditory illusion is possibly worse (a "Shepard tone")... And no, I did not listen to 10 hours of it.....

 

 

   and some detail about it here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.....epard_tone
