So my question was and remains: What is it that allows us to figure out genres at all? There’s thousands here and likely finer and finer breakdowns within that; and that people can AGREE separately that “yes, these do seem to be in the same genre” and “yes, these two genres do seem to be similar; well, where does that come from?

I mean, every performance of “a song” is unique typically; then within the mind of the listeners, every listening is unique even to them; and yet, it’s possible to roll up these experiences somehow. Amazes me
