Fair enough mooman, the beauty of it is that no one can really say one way or another whether it might work or not - no one seems to have taken a look at it.
I'd say you are right on the money about unknown possibilities as well. We cannot approach science or medicine with closed or narrow minds if we are to hope for achieving "miraculous" cures. Anything is possible.
Having said that, I would still warn people against the wisdom of using blotter or purple-microdots for pain relief...lol
