Of course, the experience of samadhi during TM and in those TMers 
reporting 24/7 witnessing, may be due to a different physiological 
state than the pathological state. In fact, the only physiological 
studies I am aware of suggest this . Interestingly enough, some 
physiological studies on Buddhist meditators suggest that at least 
some Buddhist techniques ARE inducing something similar to the 
pathological state, unlike TM...
