    Wouldn 't that be noticed by others if any !? And if there were none, wouldn 't the tune have changed your inner feelings and emotions for the rest of the day afterall !? And if you were to be alone in the house, would you have been changed in either way if you sat down for minutes/ hours quietly in the kitchen !? Quiet or not, observers or not, some changes has occured and in a sense they will be represented in the next behavior(s) or at least have an influence.

    Each and everyone is a symptom which points towards the working of other (f)actors....
