Does this hold for vision and smell and taste?

When I figure out that the light is red, or that this is more blue
than that, is that 'reduced seeing'?

My proposition is that pitch (or frequency) is not an inherent
characteristic of sound, but comes into being through quantized time,
and means of separation of elements. I am proposing that the sound
object exists only in the imagination of the listener.
