The war of the worlds

A person singing out loud with headphones, usually thinks they are singing better than they actually are.

When we whistle the famous tune of the Turkish Rondo by Mozart, the rest of the orchestra compliments the whistling inside our heads with the right base notes, string harmonies and percussion, all the while adapting to our imperfect pitch and tempo.

One of the marvels of the human brain is its ability to construct its own version of reality – one where our tune is the basis, with everything around it adapting to sustain this illusion. The problem often stems from this perfect internal reality clashing with the imperfect reality of the world outside.
