 LOL! Me to!

 Yeah, I found it very annoying to listen to him as well. Wish I could have 
fallen asleep.
 I was usually good for about ten minutes but when he closed his eyes and 
started rambling it was like WTF!

 But the problem with dozing during rounding courses is that it can all sink in 
and you start believing it all anyway, and before you know it you're saying "I 
got some nature support today" when what you meant to say was "There was an 
available table at the cafe this morning." There's a vast gulf in sanity 
between those two statements, and it creeps up on you without you realising it, 
and before you know it you've got the yagya service on speed dial....
 

 Not that I ever did any of that obviously....

 I once heard Maharishi talk about his early days while in Germany. He said 
that the German teachers had told him, in so many words, "if you can't dazzle 
them with brilliance, then baffle them with bullshit", an old W.C. Fields 
quote. Of course M didn't use those words but that was the gist of it. Try to 
talk *above* your audience. And of course, that explains the *flowery* speak 
the TMO is noted for. You're so baffled by the idiocy of how something is 
presented to you that the substance escapes your critical thinking.
 

 If it wasn't for the food and the fact I like meditating I would have run a 
mile when they said that I shouldn't try and understand it, but let it sink in 
at a deep level. Marshy's lectures always annoyed me with the rambling and the 
logical inconsistencies, I used to fall asleep and let it all wash over me 
until the dinner gong went.

 It's called *getting them in the door, by hook or by crook*. If you were a 
student of foreign languages, someone would come up with a study that says TM 
fine tunes the ear, making it easier to hear and thus pronounce words in a 
foreign language better. Whatever floats your boat in other words.

 

 Yes, I was being rhetorical. It's obvious he's a front man for the same old BS 
from the TMO, blind 'em with science and hope they don't follow the links from 
the impressive looking list of journal references. 
 

 Remember the references they cited when they wanted everyone to buy houses 
that faced east? A list of 10 papers in the International Journal of 
Neurophysiology no less, but follow the link and it turned out to be a bunch of 
interesting, but irrelevant, stuff about how rats find their way about in the 
dark. Nothing about inherent direction finding in mammals, and even if there 
was it would be magnetic and therefore north/south based. Why would a mammal be 
east sensitive? Anyway, they were obviously hoping no one would actually go and 
look. 
 

 I always thought Lynch was there to project an image simply of the benefits of 
meditation without all the silly woo-woo that is associated with TM like the 
levitation that isn't, and yagyas and world peace creation. That stuff goes 
down well with the True Believer but the average Joe will see through it in a 
second, hence the need for a new approach with a bit of apparently independent 
celebrity endorsement. The website looks great but it looks like he's borrowed 
the same approach - and undoubtably written by the same people - from the TMO.

 My first glance at Lynch's website doesn't fill me with hope that the TMO have 
started playing straight with the facts. He makes a claim for 51% reduction in 
physical problems associated with HIV/AIDS and provides a link to references. 
Follow the link and there are only two papers related to HIV/AIDS, one 
unpublished one by MUM, and another that admits in its own abstract that the 
sample size was too small to justify the claims and further research is needed 
for validation. And in any case, was only related to vitality and not physical 
problems.
 

 I know people who have died of AIDS and I am pissed off that the TMO would 
potentially try and get the hopes up of sick people with the usual dump of 
impressive sounding claims that aren't backed up. So where is the data, did I 
miss something? My best guess from reading that lot is that they are 
extrapolating from their other unconnected "research", but look down the list 
of references and it's all the same old stuff from the collected papers that no 
one ever rated as quality research, sure some of the newer stuff might be 
better but is it relevant? 

 

 Another of the claims for TM as an HIV/AIDS treatment great for anxiety and 
depression, are there any papers on mental health TM and AIDS patients? No. 
There's a few website testimonials but we all know they prove nothing. Besides, 
I know so many long term TMers that get a bit of extra help for personal 
problems that I've lost count, just as well they weren't included in the 
research huh? And then there's the FF Mental Health Alliance, does Lynch know 
about this blatant contradiction of the claims on his website?
 

 I'm curious, can anyone else find a decent bit of research actually showing 
that TM helps people with AIDS in the way they claim on Lynch's site?
