Subliminal memories

When I was younger the whole "memories while sleeping" was a thing. There was even an episode of The Simpsons where Homer tried it, but his tapes were mixed up. But these days it has either faded away like crystals or pyramid power, or 8'm just not reading the inside back covers of comics like I used to.
I would hazard a guess that it did not really work anyway. For if it did, the chess market would be one place it would have flourished. Grab a tape (surely an MP3) of your favourite opening, slip it under your pillow, and sleep your way to 2400. So unless those who have succeeded with this method a keeping that fact from the rest of us, good old fashioned hard work still seems to be the way forward.
