Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
The Sufi's have used music to enter euphoric states for hundreds of years, you have to be open to the experience but rythmic music can influence a person's mood. Recall the Whirling Dervish's
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
You can enter very light mood altering states by listening to things like this. Watching static for 35 minutes for example will put you in a weird feeling, as it should.

Ever have to dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Scales in the grass but the scales don't move right?

I tried a 'sample' here at work with my iphone earbuds. I wasn't laying down or have my eyes closed or anything, but the beats did kind of make my body feel as though it were vibrating a bit. Similar to being near a really loud speaker, but with the feeling emanating from inside instead of outside.
Seems to be a load of hodgepodge. I have pretty decent headphones, listened to a couple of em on youtube, negligable effects. Though I feel a tad bit funny and hungry after that last one.
Youtube is a gateway drug.
