TMers who still believe that there is such a thing as the Maharishi
Effect decades after it was pretty much definitively proven that it
/There must have been a similar experience when 200 hippies got together
in the desert to mediate and get high with Rama. People that live in
L.A. don't usually spend hours driving in their car out into the desert
in the middle of the night for nothing./ //Was it just to witness him
slowly lift up off of a sofa and fly around awhile?
It kind of sounds like yogic flying/./
In their minds *as TBs*, the way that they prove their faith and "win"
is to hang in there with untenable beliefs the longest. So they apply
this same brainwashed model to debating non-believers: "
/Nobody is asking you to defend your beliefs, Barry, we just want to
know what would motivate someone like you to meet with Rama at Denny's
in downtown L.A.? I've been down there a time or two and Skid Row isn't
the usual type of place to hold a spiritual group meditation. Maybe you
were trying to raise the vibes down there?
It kind sounds like the ME. //
If I can just 'outlast" this heretic, I'll have 'won' and proved my
beliefs superior to his."
/No doubt, but you are younger than I am. You got a head start on me -
your first post to newsgroups was back in 1995; my first post was 1999.
I've got a lot of catching up to do reading all your cogent comments
about Rama. Thanks./
