Summarizing Nicholas Humphrey's (2000) view "that evolution progressively shifted sensory awareness of external stimuli from publicly observable reactions to private experiences."
The authors begin a chapter on auditory spatial awareness as evolutionary artefact with "the premise that the aural experience of space contributed, at least indirectly, to the reproductive success of our species. From a narrow perspective, our brain evolved specialized auditory substrates that could incorporate spatial attributes into awareness. But, from a broader perspective, auditory spatial awareness also contributes to our ability to thrive in socially complex groups."

"...the laws of physics themselves can be viewed as a kind of context information for extracting meaning from sound events. Compared to other contexts, the context given by physical laws was stable all the time, so that evolution had ample time to adapt our brains extremely well to the ways how physics links sounds and their causes."
