Excellent point Shemp: then you'd really want to hear what they were  
saying--you'd be on the edge of your chair for the latest word. As it  
is, I'm always left wondering "is this real or was this fudged  
because M. said 'you either produce the effect I say is there, or  
you're out.' Frankly I'm excited about the Shamatha Project (which  
begins Sept of this year). This may end up being the most incredible  
research yet on meditation.

I'm just reading some recent comments by Ken Wilber--who used to  
support TM (esp. Skip Alexander's) research. Now he seems to be  
wising up too--not even knowing all the extent of all the fallacies  
and chicanery.
