The premise is interesting. But as for the so-called "Mozart Effect" that
they mention, wasn't it shown that it had absolutely nothing to do with
Mozart, and everything to do with the listener's mood (being relaxed,
whatever)? Perhaps a placebo...?

In any case, hopefully the ability of this treatment surpasses the website
author's ability to string together random, vaguely related sentences (and
to spel corectly)... And I'm still not sure what E=mc^2 has to do with
anything on that site, which is describing sound (transfer of thermal and
kinetic energy, nothing at all to do with converting subatomic particles
into photons!!)...
