Slayer as Psychostimulant

I found the following on http://www.phfactor.net/wp/2006/09/08/why-slayer-is-brain-programming/.....Some people wonder why I like Slayer so much. Then I got to wondering the same thing myself, and while wondering this I started thinking about William Gibsonís microsofts (again). Here is my theory: Slayerís music acts just like a microsoft. It plugs directly into the part of your brain that takes over when youíre running from a sabertoothed tiger. It makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and your heart race. Three hundred thousand years of evolution peeled back by the Slayer microsoft. This is why I think Slayer is so revered by so many. They have figured something out that no other musical act has - how to plug directly into the lizard brain............. NEWLINE HERE, XAL TALKING AGAIN (pops, can you please tell me how I can get newlines into your forum ?)....Anyway, this one synchronizes very well with my theory that Slayer manages to stimulate the same brain circuitry as psychostimulant drugs do. I would like to see some research on brain activity during a Slayer listening session and compare it to the brain action of for instance nicotine. Or listening to Slayer live and compare it to speed or coke....it might be a very surprising outcome and would be an interesting thought in the war-on-drugs-debate. Take care, Xal
