Why do you imagine hearing a sound from a purely visual stimulus?


One example I found was this: https://i.imgur.com/7uRSo.gif

I swear I hear a thud in my head everytime.

Your brain stores data in a really fascinating way. Everything stored inside your brain is not just for example a simple block, its a small part of a puzzle. Every little piece has connections with other pieces (that is different data inside your head) and because you are used to hearing a “thud” each time something pounds to the ground, your brain simulates that sound.

My guess is that your brain logically knows that there should be a sound there, based off of previous information.
