In one hour learn the alphabet and separate your senses.
22 September 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Vision is separated from hearing and then put back together.

Listen for Grosetesta's (spelling?) Treatis on Light..

It will make you whole again. Not to worry it's ONLY an hour. Highly recommended.
