In spiritual consequent, ignoring basic science like we see with the global climate science, meditation science, and now within public policy with early childhood developmental science, the ignoring of science so readily runs over human spiritual decency.
This United States administrative isolation and separation of young children from their parents seems sinful spiritually to thus do and spiritually sinful to advocate for it. By standards it likely rates as something of a crime against humanity. It all seems shockingly bad to sensibilities of deeper human spirituality. Evidently by science and also common sense the policy is much less than spiritual but only expedient. Pretty evidently it is incredibly hurtful to the development of young people. By science and common sense regardless of politics it apparently is not spiritually right for children to be separated from their parents or guardians by this administrative action going on. It falls in with resistance to the manifest science of climate change and the science of meditation Guru Dev says of morality.. What did ‘Guru Dev’ say on Spiritual Morality and its Moral Compass.. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/FairfieldLife/conversations/messages/437308 https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/FairfieldLife/conversations/messages/437308 ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : email response: In my experience as a ..researcher who has read thousands of papers in the biomedical field, the TM research as a whole is at least as reliable as the average and probably significantly more so. Among peer reviewed papers, some of the TM research is of far higher quality than the average. Mail: ..There are lots of problems with science generally lately, seemingly many more than there used to be. However, those problems are at least as common in non-meditation research as in research on meditation. Also, there seem to be biases within the scientific community that favor non-TM types of meditation over TM itself. (These are impressions, not something I could easily verify.) email asserts: The distinction imho is between facts and opinion. I feel there should be as little editing of opinions as possible, but facts are different. I would put Horgan's ignoring 350 TM studies in peer-reviewed journals as non-factual misrepresentation, and also his ignoring the standardization of TM which was central to his thesis. And he is just a journalist, not a scientist. The reason I feel touchy about this is the audience - local Sidhas who are deciding every day whether or not to do group program and to do their practice. And the context is the Sidha community goal of helping the country. Posting inaccurate material that can easily discourage people from doing TM-Sidhi group practice should be avoided to say the least. in email: In any event, the Horgan article lumps all kinds of meditation together. He correctly points out that if you take 2 meditation teachers you'll get 3 techniques. Except for TM, because Maharishi had the prescience to standardize the teaching. Therefore you have everyone doing the same technique, and you can compare results. That's why about half the papers in Collected Papers are in peer-reviewed journals. So Horgan's critique of meditation research is correct except as far as lumping TM in with all the others. Some blogger claims: Research on TM and Other Forms of Meditation Stinks ! https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/research-has-not-shown-that-meditation-beats-a-placebo/ https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/research-has-not-shown-that-meditation-beats-a-placebo/ Not much evident good, so the NYTimes and Scientific American say.. scientific evidence is scant for many of the practice's widely touted benefits.. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/is-meditation-overrated/ https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/is-meditation-overrated/ Bhairitu observes: Scientists probably don't like to have a bowel movement without taking a study first. : Think maybe we're getting a little obsessed with science? Meditation feels good to do and I don't need any studies for that.
