    I think (okay I'm assuming) you probably are experienced at meditation and so have the patience to wait. I can't say I have the same.
    Yes. I've been meditating for close to 20 years so I need to take that into consideration.

    There's plenty that have a more consistent beat without that break. To be fair that's pretty much the original speed but it would still depend on what equipment you're hearing it through as well. This is where it differs to visual illusions and the like. Younger people are more prone to hearing higher frequencies that can also alter the sound. "Magic eye" pictures took me a while to get and relaxing was the key to see the actual picture instead of concentrating so much on it. Sound is different. If a piece is in A major, say, then no amount of anything is going to alter it's key unless manipulated...

    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Ahhh The Magic Eye! I forgot the name.

    Relax just as you did with the 'Eye'. Stop trying to try...and just do it.
    Stop being so negative!

    They're also prone to bad haircut choices. Exhibit A: everyone's senior yearbook.

    I had the same problem with the Magic 8 ball.

    Like that could happen. A major what?

    You know what else is easy to manipulate? The Trump fan base. Not sure about the key though.

    I know it isn't sharp.

    Oh, for the days I could make those appalling choices again...

    Cue control and alignment. Then you'd sink it.

    Like that could happen. A major what?
    Just knew I should have ran with F# minor...

    Dude, I get what you're trying to say but no amount of meditation is going to turn a Beyonce song into The Rite Of Spring.
