Sometimes I think that Maharishi's "greatest accomplishment" should be listed as having taken so many at-one-time-fairly-intelligent people and, over time, turned them into weak-minded, gullible idiots like jr_esq, Share, srijau, Lawson, and others we see from time to time here on FFL. These people will believe *anything* if 1) they're told that Maharishi or some other Seller Of Woo Woo believed in it, and 2) it makes them feel more self-important and 'special' for believing it. The stuff they believe doesn't need to be reasonable, it doesn't need to follow the laws of physics or chemistry, and it doesn't depend on any kind of evidence. In fact, when presented with evidence that proves their belief to be nonsense, they believe even more strongly. Truly an accomplishment... Oh, bawee, you're too humble. Let's, for just a minute, talk about your accomplishment. Let me wax, just for a moment, about all that you have achieved here at FFL and perhaps in your other life too. You have managed, single-handedly, to have repeated yourself over and over and over and over again on the same meme, using the same tone, the same words for at least as long as I've been reading here. This is no small thing - that you would find the time and the energy and the will to be able, not to mention keen, to do this day after day. It surely exceeds my ability to take it all in day after day after day. You are the man. You are the one who never tires of hearing yourself say the same thing again and again. And you are, evidently, the person who believes others are taking any of what you write time and time and time again as anything but the result of a fellow so high on himself and what he believes that he feels the rest of us have an infinite capacity to keep reading your fluff post after empty post. Congratulations.
