I agree that their behavior is pathetic, but I don't think things are quite so cut-and-dried as you make them here. I do have a better-than-average (as opposed to "superficial") grasp of what rank-and-file TMers and Sidhas are taught (better than some teachers, in fact, based on their posts). My familiarity with what teachers are taught that is *not* taught to the rank-and-file, however, is limited to the various beans that TM teachers (mostly former) have spilled in the TM forums I've been on, so I would never claim to have anything like complete knowledge of that (and I have no way of knowing how accurate the spilled beans are with regard to what Maharishi actually said). But it's beyond ridiculous for Barry and/or Curtis to pull the "I was a teacher and you weren't" bit when the topic is what the rank-and-file are taught. And it's nothing short of maliciously mendacious for Barry to claim that I've been "trying [my] best to pretend that the reality of the TMO and the things it teaches are the same as that presented in the intro lectures." Barry knows that isn't so; Curtis knows it was absolutely not so in our discussion, but he refuses to acknowledge this because he doesn't want to risk losing Barry's support.
