Yes it already has been. However, all of them are short term fixes.
E.g. Covering the boat hull with duct tape
- in the short term- keeps the boat from sinking
in the long term- the duct tape ruins paint and removes anti fouling layer ultimately making the boat shithouse
Many people suggest higher spiritual methods including illicit drugs to fix these problems and it has worked and currently is being scientifically proven (as it uses drugs which are impossible to do research on due to legality [stupid hippies]) as methods to help fight mental illness.
