Pardon my common sense, but all of this spinning, based on a few moments of videotape, strikes me as unscientific in the extreme. A bit of mental midgetry, imo. Might as well be speculating on the motives of Kim Kardashian, for all any of us knew of Maharishi during his last days. I agree with you. Like I said, I have not watched a tape of MMY, other than that cherry picked few moments by the Australian interviewer and documentary maker, since my days at MIU so that would have been 35+ years ago. I know that I have been influenced by what others here described as his mental infirmities and I have read their accounts of their own subjective observations of later tapes but have not gone to actually see them myself. However, the question still stands for me: Does enlightenment preclude the possibility of mental decay or even senility and the onset of Alzheimers? Not having been around elderly enlightened people I have no idea.
