I just read the primary article here:


It is an intriguing hypothesis that explains a
hitherto unexplainable empirical law called the
Meyer-Overton rule which shows an inverse mathematical
relationship between the solubility of all known
general and local anaesthetics in lipids and their
potency. Anaesthethics dissolved in the neural
membranes lower the freezing point of the membrane and
reduce it's ability to conduct solitons of sound
leading to unconsciousness. 

Apparently mind really is the image of OM, the
universal sound of creation.
