Huh?  May I assume that this post is not simply a joke?

Steve, your well worded post suggests you are a reasonably competent
and informed person.  In that context, Structured water?  Water
hydrolysis?  What is this all about?

You must recognize that sounds are not input to the brain in the form
of analog audio impulses but roughly a multiple pulse train corresponding 
to a Fast Fourier Transform of the input time domain waveform to
a frequency domain.  (This is why recently developed audio to brain 
interfaces are so sophisticated and complex, and have only a limited
quality of performance.)

Sturctured water and nerve impules?  Please elaborate, lest we come
to the conclusion that this is simply another Internet joke or
still more pseudo-science.

Sorry to come across as a "Party Pooper", but here we concentrate on
factual information and not impressive sounding buzz-words or 
fantasy.  Neither cut it here.
