Vaj, you really do seem to be having trouble focusing here. Let me help you out. Here was my question: We know that a "blank wave" on a home EEG unit is indicative of a Unity Consciousness style of samadhi because...? If you don't know the answer and don't want to bother to find out, just say so. (I mean, you could always get in touch with Wilber. You're on first-name terms with him, after all.) > >>>> However it should also be noted this relates to a different > >>>> path than -> PC -> CC -> eventually leads to UC. > >>> > >>> It sure is. > >> > >> Is it? > > > > Of course. > > Uh huh. If you didn't think it was, why did you say it in the first place? Maybe you just need more sleep or something. Perhaps some B-12 might help, juice those synpases up a little. <snip> > >>>>> and (b) why we should be disheartened (or > >>>>> gleeful, if we're TM critics) that we've never heard > >>>>> of a TMer doing a "blank wave"? > >>>> > >>>> Because we should realize and make the connection that *dualistic > >>>> methods lead to dualistic states of consciousness* (e.g. the > >>>> witnessing artifact, which is an artifact of a dualistic > >>>> meditation method). > >>> > >>> But which (as you know, and just said above) is a > >>> transitional feature in terms of UC. > >> > >> I assume you are referring to GC? > > > > GC?? > > GC = "God Consciousness" Yes, Vaj, I know what it stands for.

No, no. It was *your* claim. If you don't understand it yourself and aren't willing to do the research necessary to explain and defend it, why on earth should anyone take it seriously? <snip> > >> If you don't "get this", that's fine.

Now you're hallucinating, for pete's sake. More sleep, Vaj, you definitely need more sleep. ------------------------ Yahoo! Groups Sponsor --------------------~--> Yahoo! Groups gets a make over.
