Maybe that's why some continue twitching after program and can't stop? Perhaps they've identified this mechanism which causes neurological damage in some people practicing TM and the TMSP--an inability to stop or be flexible in activity? I'd love to see a study on that! It would be interesting to know how many suffered neurological damage from the TMSP. Has the TMO ever done any research on the Tourette's-like symptoms it can cause?
