Well, well, well, that is a highly imaginative rendition of psychology.
My understanding is more like this. When an organ pedal note is soft, it barely audible and hardly adds to the sound, whatever the loudness of the rest of the sound and before and after. When you crank up the volume, THAT same note is relatively louder AND it contributes more to the whole sound.
So when louder, the organ sounds different because that pedal is RELATIVELY more audible due to the Fletcher-Munson phenomenon. If the louder performance of that note is close to real church level, then you'd say, "Gosh, isn't Ben's hifi awfully good." But when played softly, you'd say, "Gosh when I heard that 5 manual Aeolian Skinner organ in the church, the bass seemed a lot more prominent than at Ben's house."
You may think you rise above such human "non-linearities" by dint of superior cognition and are not a victim of such "illusions" and frailties. But I don't and I can't. Do you?
Does that prove my point about the value of correcting for the contours when you play softly (even if none of us bother)?
