Water tastes like nothing. You only taste the impurities in it.

I've always thought that water does have a taste, but since we are mostly water, we unfortunately can't taste it

Half true. Water does have taste, only humans can't detect it. Certain animals like cats can taste the actual water and impurities. Have a thumb.

This is similar to sound. The noises that we hear are just our minds' interpretation of the vibration of our surrounding air molecules. This is quite amazing in itself, but to consider the extremely complex calculations our minds process when we are in a noisy environment with multiple sound sources, or listening to music, and we can actually separate the sounds into individuals and acknowledge the source, its direction, and possibly distance, all from vibrating air, is an astonishing thought.

The mind is truly an amazing thing. People typically compare the brain to a computer, usually with disappointment at the speed of our mathematical processing abilities. When told that our minds are far more advanced than any supercomputer, people are usually skeptical. The fact that the brain can do all of these incredibly complex sensory calculations at once, instantaneously, all subconsciously, whilst allowing us to make conscious decisions about how to react to all of the surrounding stimuli, now, 5 minutes from now, tomorrow, etc., is just breath-taking. Computers cannot even compare. I try not to take this stuff for granted.

Have one yourself for giving knowledge.
