Evidently the culturing of behavior and ‘awakening’ of transcendence in life 
run on different a-b axis as variables. 

 
 .One could suppose that in outing ‘a list’ of poor players it would open a 
small shop like Watkins (BATGAP too) to liability sorts of legal suits. 
 

# 

 I can recognize some TMers and ex-TMers in the list: 6 

5 Oprah Winfrey
6 Oprah Winfrey
9 Arianna Huffington
11 Deepak Chopra
16 Russell Brand.

but I am sure there are others. Can someone make a full search?

 On the BATGAP web and facebook pages bad characters in behavior get 'outed' 
through replies (#metoo), bad actors are not listed by name and likely for 
litigious reason also their interview simply gets dropped from the web page and 
topic of awakening enlightenment mostly succumbs to debate there to just being 
about, “what is enlightenment?”, not necessarily what is moral spiritually, in 
character?

Who was dropped from consideration on the list?

 In finding rating on spiritual scales of transformation, do Watkins or others 
keep a ‘Consumer Report’ version of their listings in mind including the high 
and low moral character of teachers or groups?  Parsing teachers who evidently 
can be trusted ethically, or not? 
 As people are looking at spiritual teachers in the marketplace can folks find 
out about ethical trustworthiness of teachers, in ratings they can trust?

 And spiritually ethical?  
 Have they had to edit their Watkins ‘spiritual’ list down, like Rick Archer 
has had to do hosting interviews on BATGAP as some ‘awakened’ teachers are 
found (#MeToo) with narcissitically low spiritual behavior.. The BAD-GAP of the 
group?

 There are several factors that were taken into account when compiling the 
list. The main three criteria are:
 1) The person has to be alive as of January 1st, 2018
 2) The person has to have made a unique and spiritual contribution on a global 
scale
 3) The person is frequently googled, appears in Nielsen Data, has a Wikipedia 
page, and is actively talked about throughout the Internet By taking into 
account the amount of times that a person is googled or how many times their 
Wikipedia profile is viewed, the list gains a highly democratic and transparent 
parameter. Additionally, we were highly selective in creating this list and did 
our best to remove candidates who spread messages that were hateful or 
intolerant. Ultimately, this list is meant to celebrate the positive influence 
of today’s spiritual teachers.
