A discussion of some "weird chit" recently has prompted me to create an experiment today concerning a long-standing theory about how morphic fields affect informational fields, which in turn affects human senses. The idea is to improve one's sense of hearing by manipulating morphic fields. I'd like to share with my friends and fellow musicians - at least those open to new ideas. I know this is a very mockworthy idea. Yes, I don't have to be told that it makes no sense (most people have never experimented in this domain). But nevertheless, it's an idea that has worked for me and for thousands of people who have done similar experiments with sound and human senses, over the last quarter century. More importantly, it takes less time to test than it does to mock. So who knows, it might work for you, and it doesn't cost a dime to try it. All it requires is: a commercial CD (with booklet and inside its jewel case). a fine point black marker (or liquid gel pen, whatever produces fine dark black ink) On a plain white piece of paper, write the following message with the fine black marker: EVERYTHING IS SAFE INSIDE EVERYTHING IS SAFE INSIDE EVERYTHING IS SAFE INSIDE > O.K. Cut out just the message, open the CD jewel box, place the message so at least part of it is directly on the "CompactDisc" logo printed on the CD. Then close the jewel box (CD case). (If the message is longer than the CD and wont fit in the case, fold it in half). That's all there is to it. This CD is now a "device". Here's how to test it: TEST ===== HOW TO TEST: Theoretically, the presence of the CD in its case is affecting your sound. For it to not affect your sound, you have to at least take it out of the room (because its affecting morphic fields present in its environment. Taking it out of the house totally negates the effect, but that's probably not necessary). So you test it by keeping it in the room, then taking it out when you want to hear if it makes a difference to your sound. (Simply taking the message off the CD should also make a difference to the sound, but not as much as it out of the room). WHAT TO TEST: Play a CD (but not the CD that contains the message), on the best quality stereo you have. Repeat the same track, and either take the "CD device" that contains the message out of the room, or back into the room. Repeat the same track you were playing and see if the music sounds more natural, or smooth, or the resolution (quality in general) has improved. Yes, you can also test this using your bass guitar- that's the fun part. Play a riff with the CD in front of you (or better still, on top of your speakers), and then with it out of the room. See if the tone of your guitar has changed in any way, after repeating the same riff. Repeat the test a few times, to better identify changes. (n.b. I think the changes are no doubt way too subtle to be heard under the stresses and noise of live conditions, and is best tested at home, when things are quiet. Also, this message isn't meant to be attached to a guitar, it will make things sound worse. If there is interest, I'll try to come up with something more suitable for a bass).
