Well, its a 30 year old theme in the TMO -- at least as far as states, dual and non-dual, having measurable correlates. TMO folks got it from MMY -- and his active encouragement of various researchers of that theme. And TMO'ers got it from many advanced lectures, res course tapes, etc. And SCI. Where did you "miss" the theme being there? More power to anyone claiming awakening. But without specific physiological correlates, its not TMO enlightenement. It is something else, some other definition of higher states, other than the TMO's. Such as it appears Jim is doing. That doesn't imply that such awakened or non-TMO BC aren't substantial or "less". But they are not the TMO thing. It does raise a good set of questions: i) is refinement of the nervous system, ii) is a nervous system indeed necessry' for enlightenment? Peter, if i understand his past posts, has said "no" to i). Though this is clearly contgraty to TMO dogma / theory. His response to ii) would be intersting.
