MORA

Pseudomedicine
A device developed by F Morrel, MD, which is said to receive electromagnetic waves directly from a person’s body, manipulate the aberrant waveforms, normalise them by increasing or decreasing their amplitude and then return the “treated” normal waves to the individual, thereby effecting a cure. The device is said to be effective for headaches, skin diseases, muscle pain and circulatory defects; it may be used for colour therapy, and in combination with homeopathic remedies.

The scheme depicted in Figure 5b would not be possible in a light closed syllable if moras cannot be shared between three sounds.
Nevertheless, in the case of an ordinary geminate, the entire weight is on one syllable, whereas a geminate with shared moras distributes its weight over two syllables.
