Somewhat more believable, actually.
/It's beginning to look like we have another case of cognitive
dissonance - Michael confronted by the reality that his hero Barry is
nothing but another cult informant. This is really going to confuse MJ -
because if what these two guys have been saying is t//rue//, then they
are themselves two of the most screwed up individuals on the entire
planet. Almost a total mix-up confabulation session!
One could easily produce depositions from hundreds of people over the
years who saw Freddie levitate.
/It should be noted that nowhere in any of his writings or lecture
videos does Frederick Lenz claim to be able to levitate himself up off
of a sofa.
Possibly a couple of thousand of them, total.
/Apparently Barry got real mixed up and went over to being a True
Believer, imagining that Lenz was God Vishnu. Barry used to print up
posters and tack them up all over L.A. with photos of Lenz with titles
like: "This man can turn a room GOLD in 60 seconds." Apparently that's
what got Barry kicked out of the cult - making up fabricated stories
about Lenz having para-normal powers. In many cases it's the followers
that make the teacher seem like a fool. Case in point.
//"I am enlightened in the classic sense," Lenz says, but insists, "It's
not a big deal. This is not having godlike qualities." - Fredrick Lenz//
Has the TMO produced even *one* person who claims on the record to
have seen Maharishi or anyone else levitate (for real, that is...say,
hanging in the air for several *minutes* without descending, not
seconds)? They have not.
/In fact, Frederick Philip Lenz, III, Ph.D. was a really smart guy - a
senior systems architect in computer science. He would probably have
been the first one to deny that learning computer science would produce
the ability for anyone to levitate or vice-versa./
