This is like saying if you learn to drive a car you can flow around the streets and your tendency towards sea-sickness will likely diminish because you'll be gaining in your sense of moving freely and unusually relative to walking as a primary mode of travel.
But if you learn to drive and you are an actor living in Ashland Oregon and you decide to throw it all in for the bright lights you can jump in a car and, in one long solo drive, you can make it all the way to Hollywood and on your first night stay in the Whitley St. Motel 6 just a half a block up from Hollywood Blvd. on Whitley for under $50 a night and if you have a south facing room on an upper floor you'll be blessed with a lovely view of Los Angeles spread out before you and you might head on out on your very first morning there full of the joy of youth and self confidence and, at the Li'l Devil Restaurant just down the street or some other nearby venue you may run into and begin a conversation with a young movie-star-to-be and the trajectory of your WHOLE LIFE may be changed permanently and forever. So learning to drive has more to do with bigger things than affecting one's tendency towards sea-sickness. Sea sickness isn't the point of it, nor is it the reason why people do it. And meditation isn't about lab tests and curious third parties pushing buttons and making computer entries. Scientists do not understand concepts related to Kaivalya .. Liberation .. Freedom from Samsara. Increased Compassionate Understanding is not on their 'watchlist'.
