    Maybe we just haven't yet discovered whatever it is that makes the sound 'merlyn'.

    It's entirely possible that if we had microphones sensitive enough to pick up the hum of electricity running through RAM, we would hear 'merlyn' when a Schwartzian Transform is executed. Perhaps that's its secret.
