Possible because several fear spinners paint such a distorted picture
of FF. Particularly "recent shows" -- here less than a year. FFL has a
pretty extensive history, if you go back in the archives, of
discussion of experiences over its close to five year history.
Where things got a bit strange -- 2-3 years ago -- long before recent
shows -- is when questions were repeated asked about experiences, and
sometimes about apparent contradictions. And diversions and
generalities were the primary response. With the seeming lack of
willingness or inability for some posters to address contradictions,

to the point of exasperation. After a while, some posters were just
not taken too seriously. Over time, after some history of posts, some
discussions surely fell below auspicious levels. That in itself is a
learning process, IMO, IME.
Other experience posters who are actually open to discussing their
posts --not a "take it or leave it" post, have been questioned and
their experinces discussed quite respectfully. Your experience seems
interesting and straightforward. I don't anticipate any negative or
skeptical responses. We all have had experiences that are hard to
An aside, personally I don't consider experiences related to siddhis

experience. I don't concur and find such claims rather odd if not
silly. Still they can raise some interesting questions about cognitive
