Our world can be divided into two time periods: B.D. and A.D.

While some can rest on their "laurels", many have sparked a debate about how two people can hear different names.

In the clip posted to Twitter, a robotic voice is heard saying a single word.

Last night on Twitter, user Cloe Feldman shared a deceptively simple clip of an Instagram poll asking what users hear: yanny or laurel. Be prepared for a battle the world hasn't seen since Avengers: Infinity War.

ABC News reached out to the Reddit user but did not get a response.

If you've been off the internet today, take a moment to turn up your volume and listen to this recording.

But that doesn't necessarily explain why someone would hear the lower or higher frequencies.

Team Yahoo Lifestyle was split pretty much down the middle, with beauty editor Jacqueline Laurean Yates saying, "I don't hear Yanny AT ALL".

YouTube channel Nerd It Up dissected the recording as well, concluding that which word you hear depends on the pitch of the recording.
