 Many people do not realize that a computer connected to the internet
 reveals details about their personal life: who they are, where they
 work, where they go, who they visit and their surfing habits. It's all
 there - housed as digital information at a data center somewhere. All it
 needs is to be extracted. There are no secrets anymore. It's almost
 impossible to hide from the data collection even if you don't own a

[FairfieldLife] Take A Voigt-Kampff Test

2014-06-13 Thread Pundit Sir pundits...@gmail.com [FairfieldLife]
Replicants supposedly have no capacity for empathy, and their unemotional
reaction to Voigt-Kampff questions reveals their artificiality, e.g., If
you saw a tortoise lying on it's back in the desert...

The replicants in 'Blade Runner', based on the book by Phillip Dick, (Do
Androids Dream of Electric Sheep), are created to exactly resemble humans.
In San Francisco post WWT there is often confusion whether a humanoid is
real or an android. Bounty hunters and others use the Voigt-Kampff test to
distinguish humans from replicants. The test consists of questions which
elicit an emotional response.

In order to understand how a replicant thinks it would be necessary to get
inside a replicant's brain. This being almost impossible in the year 2002,
we might instead read about one man's attempt, in the not so distant
future, in order to become more familiar with the way replicants think and
act, so as to be better prepared ourselves, in how to deal with them.

As narrated by Rick Deckard in 'Blade Runner' Deckard plans to kill enough
errant replicants so he can replace his robotic sheep with a real one. Says
Deckard: The electric things have their lives, too. Paltry as those lives
are. (Androids 214). In the process of hunting down these pseudo-humans,
Deckard falls in love with a replicant, in fact the beautiful Rachel, the
daughter of Tyrel. In the process Deckard learns about himself and what it
means to be human and subhuman.

As the narration continues Deckard becomes confused just like we would in
the same situation; who or what is the real human? And, how are we going to
be able to tell the 'clones' from the real thing? We can't even sort out
all the various religions, races, and nationalities now, let alone sort out
humans from identical replicants in the future!

This brings up the question of human consciousness, robot consciousness,
and how they are similar and different from us thinking humanoids. The main
theme of Phillip K. Dick's novel concerns similarity and difference;
sentient robots that look identical to humans, but are not human at all.
The central question is whether or not we can spot replicants in order to
retire them. Looming in the background is the question: is Deckard himself
a replicant?

Thinking like a replicant is the way Deckard explores his own consciousness
and humanity. Replicants, that is, androids, make Deckard realize that he
might not be so human after all. He actually becomes more inhuman than the
replicants he is remorselessly hunting! I think the answer is clear:
Androids dream of sheep just like humans do. After all, they are
replicants.

[FairfieldLife] FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com wrote:



 I was talking to my Kentucky friend Bob the other day. Bob was MIU for
 eight years total, as a student for most of them, but he worked on staff
 from time to time. This is what he told me.

 Yeah I was there during the Robin Carlsen years. I went to see him once,
 just once, out of curiosity really. And it was interesting, but he was
 kinda strange I thought. He was kinda strange. Now one thing, he did have
 some energy, no question about it. He looked directly in my eyes and man I
 felt like he was peering into all the deep dark stuff that was in there,
 you know?

 But he was really kinda strange, and from what I could see of his stuff,
 well he was doing exorcisms is what he was really doing with people. But
 anyway I only went that one time, and that was the only time I saw him
 except for the time he came to a Charlie Lutes talk and I was there.

 But anyway, I went back on campus after the Robin Carlsen thing, and went
 to work the next day like usual, I was working the in press at that time
 and about half way through the day a guy comes in and says Bob, the Ad
 Council wants to see you.

 So I said ok and man, there were a few guys in the press that day, and
 none of 'em would look me straight in the eye, they all had these hang dog
 looks on their faces and would only look at me out of the sides of their
 eyes.

 So I followed this guy on over to where they were waiting for me, and I
 walk in the room and there is Bill Rist, Mario Orsati and James Beddinger.
 There was one other guy there too, but I can't remember who it was. They
 sit me down and started in on the interrogation. They asked me all kinds of
 questions about my going to see Robin, but the main thing they kept asking
 me over and over was Do you believe in him?

 So I told 'em what I knew they wanted to hear, like I thought he was
 flakey and I just went that one time out of curiosity and stuff like that.
 I guess I satisfied them, cause they didn't kick me out, but they sure did
 give me some lectures about how I needed to be careful about what I did as
 a staff or student and I needed to be careful about my behavior and my
 thinking.

 And that was the end of it, except that after that every time I saw James
 around campus he would give me these looks, you know, like I'm watching
 you boy! kind of looks.

 And I swear, you know I am a big and was a big Charlie Lutes fan so
 whenever Charlie would come anywhere close to Fairfield, I would always go
 see him. But after that meeting with Bill Rist and Mario and James, ever
 after that when I would come back on campus after seeing Charlie, there
 would come James.

 It didn't matter if I was headed to my room or the dining hall or student
 union, or wherever I would be, just a few minutes after getting back on
 campus, James would come walking by. He would just say hello, but I knew he
 was letting me know he knew I had gone to see Charlie.

 The other thing that happened was from then on any time I applied for a
 course of any kind, WPA or whatever my application was always held up and I
 had to answer questions about going to see Robin Carlsen that one time. And
 that went on while I was staff and student and for years after, even when I
 would apply to go to a WPA in Louisville or someplace, they have always
 asked me about going to see Robin.

FYI: I sat with Suzuki Roshi at the SFZC for a year in 1968 and with

Sonoma, so it's been 46 years now that I've been practicing in the Soto Zen
tradition. Up in northern California lots of people practice various types
of meditation. Sonoma Mountain Zen Center is situated on 80 acres of
rolling hills and mountainous land, located 11 miles from the town of Santa

full-time.

Inside the Sonoma Zen Center:



Jakusho Kwong-roshi was born in Santa Rosa in 1935 and began studying Zen
with Shunryu Suzuki-roshi in 1959. He received ordination at San Francisco
Zen Center in 1970 and began establishing Sonoma Mountain Zen Center in
1973 as his commemoration to his teacher. Kwong-roshi completed Dharma
transmission in 1978 through Hoitsu Suzuki-roshi at Rinsoin, Japan. This
authorized him as Dharma successor to Suzuki-roshi's lineage. Kwong-roshi
travels annually to the Southwest, Iceland and Poland to lead sesshins for

 Sort revealing, I think, how some people delight in calling others a
 sucker because they spend 10 minutes of their time, and $0.00, or maybe
 $8.00 to check something out.

 Kinda proves Jim's point that those whose spiritual quest has fallen
 short, can't resist taking any, (and every) opportunity to denigrate those
 still have some curiosity about things considered a little woo woo.

 Or maybe in Michael's case, posting a hilarious video the end of which a
 dog looks as though he is going to the victim of an axe attack.  Just
 hilarious isn't it.  Oh, but he used it as a joke about TM, right, so it's
 all good.

 Allow me to explain exactly how this works.  For the amazingly low price

 get gazed upon by Braco.  You stand there and Braco looks at you.  Then

 increase libido.

  I had to break it to them gently that most of his stuff is a twisted
 sexual nightmare but i still think it would counterbalance the horror of
 Bevan and the Raja's nicely. In fact I originally I thought he might have
 infiltrated the TMO to get some ideas for a particularly odd movie, that
 would be cool. Then I realised he was serious and predicted that he
 wouldn't make another shocker like Blue Velvet to avoid offending the
 sattvic TB's.

  Now I think all his surreal stuff since then has been pretentious
 drivel. He's either past it or all that TM has dulled his creativity over
 the years, instead of the opposite which is what he usually claims.

MJ may be interested in this about Otis Spann:

In late 1954, he teamed up with harmonica player Billy Boy Arnold, drummer
Clifton James, and bass player Roosevelt Jackson, and recorded demos of
I'm A Man and Bo Diddley. They re-recorded the songs at Chess Studios
with a backing ensemble comprising Otis Spann (piano), Lester Davenport
(harmonica), Frank Kirkland (drums), and Jerome Green (maracas). The record
was released in March 1955, and the A-side, Bo Diddley, became a number

 Who Do You Love

 I walk 47 miles of barbed wire,
 I use a cobra-snake for a necktie,
 I got a brand new house on the roadside,
 Made from rattlesnake hide,
 I got a brand new chimney made on top,
 Made out of a human skull,
 Now come on take a walk with me, arlene,
 And tell me, who do you love?

 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?

 Tombstone hand and a graveyard mine,
 Just 22 and I don't mind dying.

 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?

 I rode around the town, use a rattlesnake whip,
 Take it easy arlene, don't give me no lip,

 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?

 Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
 Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
 Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
 You should have heard just what I seen.

 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?

 Arlene took me by my hand,
 And she said oh bo, you know I understand.

 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?
 Who do you love?

 radical new gun legislation that will allow

 The law, called the “Safe Carry Protection

 requires bars to

 executive director of the Georgia Association

 Proponents of the law say, however, that it

According to what I've read, Fred Lenz declined to demonstrate his power of
levitation for Randi because it was not a double-blind test, as there were
no control group placebos available to measure how high and the duration of
each levitation event. Without a strict control group, Randi would not have
been able to distinguish the real lift-up or the float capacity of either

 the whole point was that he wasn't in proximity to the Amherst group.
 They were in Massachusetts; he was at MIU (that's 1,000 miles apart).
 Sheesh,

 But somebody would have done and you'd have to remove any influence.

  that was the whole point of the study, to see whether the effect carried
 over distance to someone who wasn't in the group.

 Obviously.

 He probably knew that the Amherst course was taking place around that
 time, but he may not have known that what he was being tested for had
 anything to do with the course. We'd have to see the actual study to know
 what the controls actually were.

 It still holds that knowing there's a course going on might affect his own
 performance, and consequently EEG's, if he picked up some sort of signal
  to subconsciously meditate deeper during the teaching process. You aren't
 anywhere near sceptical enough.

 And it's by no means the case that it's only the TMO that believe this
 idea that all minds are connected as a unified field that also connects
 everything else. It's a fairly common belief among those who subscribe
 to the Perennial Philosophy and New Age types in general.

 Does anyone else claim to have evidence?

 And I think you've gone way beyond reasonable in the strictness of your
 controls.

 Ha! I see why it's important to have independent researchers.

 As to Randi, I'll stand by what I said about the strength of his bias; and
 I'll just add that his professional integrity is, er, not of the highest.

 He undoubtably thinks you're all mad but it's up to you to prove

 Don't recall if it got published. Would have to have been a journal

 Remember this was a WPA, so rounding would have been involved, and
 general knowledge about programme times might not have been adequate to
 clue the subject in (especially if he or she wasn't a Sidha--do you
 remember, Salyavin?). Also, just generally, sometimes explaining away a
 purported result involves positing circumstances and effects that are
 almost as unlikely--e.g., in this case, suggestion or subconsciously
 transmitted information being sufficient to allow the subject to
 significantly alter his or her EEG in specific ways at specific times.

 CAVEAT: I'm not claiming that the study showed anything startling, just
 critiquing Salyavin's critique.

 Sorry, but that's exactly the sort of thing that anyone trying to repeat
 the study would look for and subconscious cues are an obvious first step.
 Remember, the TMO is a closed group with a strong belief system that you
 only think your mind hasn't been  steeped in. Suppose the subjectively
 stronger meditative state you report was trained into you by the way
 meditation is checked? You wouldn't know but you may perform in the same
 way when on a course or even just in the presence of a TM teacher because
 of expectations picked up at meetings.

 Some of the people Randi have had to put up with! He had a guy who could
 turn pages of a book with his mind. He'd sit with a book in front of him
 and the pages turn without him touching them! I saw the film even.

 Randi asked if him he could do it with a sheet of glass between him and
 the book and he said of course he could. He couldn't obviously, how anyone
 could be so deluded they weren't aware they were just breathing on the
 pages is beyond me. The human capacity for self-delusion must be near
 infinite. Which is why believers can't be trusted to examine themselves
 properly.

 He's had harder subjects than that though, telepaths and mind readers that
 turned out not to be are common as muck, cold readers even if they aren't
 aware that is what they are doing. Loads of them still make a living even
 after they failed in the test Randi set. It was set up to fail they claim
 afterwards. Whereas before they were keen to demonstrate their powers under
 conditions they themselves agreed to. To keep their belief in their powers
 intact they scapegoat Randi as unfair. Go figure.

 It's the When Prophecy Fails syndrome all over again. A prophecy fail
 makes the TBs believe in it even more. Go figure. There is simply no
 accounting for self-importance and an inability to say, I was wrong.

 People are willing to come up with so many twisted theories to explain
 *their* mystical experience. And as far as I can tell, all of this is
 driven by self-importance. They're declaring My experience was SPECIAL
 (and of course, silently saying And so am I), and they're desperate for
 any way to prove it. What such people are unable to cope with is someone
 hearing about their experience and saying, No, it's not special at all,
 and neither are you.


 One of the most interesting people that took on the Randi challenge was a
 guy who thought he could talk to babies telepathically.

 UK's Channel 5 made a doc about him in their Extraordinary People
 strand. The most extraordinary thing to me was that anyone thought it was
 possible in the first place, I mean babies don't have thoughts and
 conceptualised desires, they don't even have a language at that age!

 None of this has stopped the guy making a fortune out of his powers he
 still fills halls up and down the country with dopey women and their
 bawling kids where he rather obviously cold-reads irrelevant crap about
 their family lives and charges them a fortune to tell them things they
 already know. It's no different than mediums preying on the bereaved
 really. And credit where it's due, he was very good at it.

 Anyway, this guy took up James Randi on his offer and went to claim his
 money. Randi interviewed him and they came up with a test that would
 showcase his skills. Boy, was he confident and he really thought the
 money was his.

 The look on his face when he came out of the soundproof room to see how
 well he'd done and found out he'd drawn a complete blank was priceless and
 he accused Randi of cheating and setting him up to fail, but we all saw it.
 There was no doubt without the parents to talk to he couldn't do it.

 So why was it called Extraordinary People and not Extraordinary Failures?
 After his disappointment with Randi the documentary makers took him to a
  psychologist rather more sympathetic to claims of this kind (you can see
 the problem there) who did an EGG of him when he was in his cold-reading
 trancey state and declared that he was using his brain in a way that he'd
 never seen before. And it was interesting but looked like he'd simply
 started using another brain section for his trick, maybe one that gets used
 in altered states?

 Anyway, this was taken as confirmation that he really did have a special
 supernatural skill even though it completely ignored all the other evidence
 of cold-reading and his failure at Randi's lab. To me it was a fine
 cautionary tale about trusting sympathetic

It's not complicated.

After reading all the published reports posted online and most of the books
about the incident, I guess I can safely say that MMY did not rape Mia
Farrow.

So, let's review what we know:

John and Cynthia went to a yoga meditation camp over in India, according to
Nancy. Paul was there too, with Jane Asher. At the yoga camp, John tried to
sneak Yoko Ono in through the bathroom window, but Cynthia kicked John out
of the bedroom, according to Cynthia. John went over to Paul and Jane's
room and they smoked some weed smuggled in by Magic Alex, according to
Chopra.

When MMY found out about it, he kicked John and Paul out of the camp. When
John and Paul got back from India they told a few fibs about their
experience in India as a cover-up. Then, John grew a long beard, dressed
himself up in white pajamas, shacked up with Yoko in a Canadian hotel
room,and went on TV to demonstrate their yoga technique - bed yoga for
world peace.

You can't make this stuff up.

 Did the book provide evidence that Maharishi rearranged his schedule to

 Did the book provide a semen-stained dress?


 It is entirely plausible that MMY DID have one or more affairs. He stopped
 using the title of a life-long celibate starting in the early 60's. He
 admitted in a radio interview in the late 60's that had he known it was
 possible to become enlightened without being celibate, he would have
 married and had kids.

 I'm just curious as to why Judy finds the book so persuasive (whether or

 That's how one version of the story goes. In another version, told by
 Cynthia Lennon, Magic Alex convinced John and George that Maharishi had had
 sex with one of the American students (not Mia), and that's why they left.
 Cynthia thinks Alex was jealous of Maharishi's influence over John and
 wanted to get the Beatles away from him:


 http://www.beatles-unlimited.com/2008/02/10/cynthia-lennon-the-beatles-the-maharishi-and-me/

 For Magic Alex's version, see here (pages 8 and 9):

 http://graphics8.nytimes.com/packages/pdf/arts/Mardas.pdf

 I've seen yet another version, which I can't find now on the Web, in which
 Alex set Maharishi up, collaborating with this American student to stage
 the scene implicating Maharishi that Alex took John to witness.

 Mia Farrow wasn't involved in any of these versions. From everything I can
 determine, it appears that the Mia story and the John-and-George-leaving
 story got conflated somewhere along the line. In any case, as Lawson says,
 Mia has backed way off her original claim.

 But if the issue is whether Maharishi was or wasn't celibate, which of the
 above versions (if any) is the correct one is irrelevant, since we know
 from other sources that he wasn't.

 Scorpion Nation? Ah, that takes me back. 2005 it was, the TMO in the UK
 had always been strong, and generous, we had three large academies, a
 purpose built town and a network of lively centres. Marshy's favourite
 group of devotees, always willing to cough up for yagyas and any other
 project that came along. Quite the role model for a perfect society you'd
 think.

 I was living in a TM centre at the time, not as a devotee, I just needed
 somewhere to live. They had closed all the academies to pay for the pundit
 project and encourage us to build vastu ones. Even the one I lived in
 which was pretty annoying but there you are. But I wasn't a believer at
 that point, not by a long stretch. I'd seen enough fraud and flakery and
 was there strictly as a take what you need and leave the rest type. And
 even that was wearing thin, I was having to avoid all broadcasts on the
 Marshy channel because they made my skin crawl, except for the weekly press
 conference. Wish I'd taped some of that, that would be youtube gold.
 Especially the one where Marshy said that the reason the US hadn't caught
 Bin Laden was because of our coherence creating and laughed! A surreal and
 disturbing moment and Hagelin tried to deny he'd meant that but the
 journalist wasn't convinced, me neither.

 Anyway, after the Iraq invasion Marshy decided that was the last straw and
 called the office at Skem to tell the assembled governors that he was
 closing the movement in the UK as our national consciousness was too
 poisonous to deserve what he was offering. Amid all the wailing, tears
 and protests Marshy asked if there was any good reason why he shouldn't.
 Wish I'd been there to answer that, first there is the obvious illogic of
 the feeding nectar to the scorpion if the ME worked then we need more TM
 not less. If it doesn't work we might as well carry on regardless. The idea
 that there is a critical mass whereby the ME is bad until the threshold is
 passed and then it becomes good is another layer of madness on top of all
 the others. It did him no favours.

 Then there's the political argument. No one *liked* Tony Blair, he just
 wasn't as bad as the opposition. That's how democracy works, it's a crap
 system of government but better than the alternative. Nobody prioritised
 war when they voted as every party was in favour anyway. Most of the
 western world went along with the idea that it would be quick and painless
 and we'd be rid of a vile dictator and be able to control the oil supply
 much easier.

 I don't know what the real reason was, maybe Marshy actually believed his
 delusions about the world, maybe he felt he had to act like it was all real
 regardless of whether it made sense or not. Maybe he was just nuts at that
 point, but he'd done it before with Denmark (?) for something to do with
 the national leader saying the wrong thing, can't remember what happened
 but it was well trivial. The whole concept is petty and spiteful and really
 upset a lot of friends of mine who sincerely believe all this stuff. It
 seemed like a sort of megalomania but he gave everyone the idea he was
 doing it for their own good. Narcissism? Paranoia? They say he tripled the
 price because a group of teachers from the UK asked him to lower it.

 Anyway, I laughed when I heard about Scorpion land. It was the icing on
 the cake really. I went off Marshy very early on, I didn't believe a word
 of the vedic science I thought Tony Nader and John Hagelin were either
 insane or lying. I couldn't watch 10 minutes of the channel without
 shuddering in terror. Then I heard about the Kaplan letter and joined FFL
 so I could read it in the files section. And then I thought I'd make just
 one post

 I find all the research I've discovered this morning fascinating, because
 for me it helps to explain the phenomenon I've witnessed in the TMO and in

 TM is 100% life-supporting and has no negative side effects -- and the
 *obvious* contradictions to that they see in front of their own eyes, but
 somehow find a way to ignore or deny.

 TMers cling to the 100% positive meme even if they have witnessed with
 their own eyes people freaking out and entering psychotic states while on
 long TM courses, or even committing suicide on them. They cling to this
 meme *even if it's happened to them* (not the suicide part, of course), and
 they've spent days, weeks, or months in the heavy unstressing groups
 themselves.

 What if it all comes down to TM creating elevated Oxytocin levels?

 High Oxytocin levels would certainly explain the blissninny phenomenon,
 and why people feel so blissy and good after meditating, especially on long
 courses, where they're doing a lot of it. It would explain the enhanced
 affinity they feel for the group (meaning fellow TMers) and the *lack* of
 affinity (downright disdain and scorn in some cases...see Buck's rants
 about non-meditators or Nabby's rants about Buddhists) who are NOT in
 the group.

 It would explain the extent to which people will perform unethical acts
 and say untruthful things to protect the group. Who, after all, would
 smuggle huge sums of cash across international borders just because they
 were told to do so by the group, or lie to people in intro lectures about
 TM having no religious connotations *just after attending a 'celebration'
 in which they had personally invoked the names of Hindu gods and bowed to
 them* if they *weren't* dosed with some powerful psychotropic chemical?
 High Oxytocin levels explain the cult apologetics we see as an integral
 part of how the TMO does business, and why otherwise seemingly sane
 people go out of their way to participate in untruthful spin out of
 misplaced loyalty to the group.

 High Oxytocin levels even explain why some who were latently suffering
 from Borderline Personality Disorder or Narcissistic Personality Disorder
 find those types of behaviors enhanced after long-term practice of TM and
 begin to act them out. High Oxytocin levels explain the obvious envy
 present when TMers put down practitioners of other forms of meditation who
 get more scientific press than TM does, or who find it easier to find new
 students than they do.

 I think there is meat here for a real study of the effects of
 meditation, and how it can seem to produce positive results, but *at the
 same time* seem to produce other, far less positive results.

 Of course, no one in the TM movement will ever be willing to undertake
 such a study, because if it turned out to prove my hypothesis, they'd have
 disproved one of Maharishi's primary pieces of dogma: TM is 100%
 life-supporting and has no negative side effects.

 And y'know...Oxytocin even explains WHY they believe such dogma. Oxytocin
 increases *trust*, and the willingness to believe what you've been told to
 believe.

 TM having no religious connotations *just after attending a 'celebration'
 in which they had personally invoked the names of Hindu gods and bowed to
 them* if they *weren't* dosed with some powerful psychotropic chemical?
 High Oxytocin levels explain the cult apologetics we see as an integral
 part of how the TMO does business, and why otherwise seemingly sane
 people go out of their way to participate in untruthful spin out of
 misplaced loyalty to the group.

 High Oxytocin levels even explain why some who were latently suffering
 from Borderline Personality Disorder or Narcissistic Personality Disorder
 find those types of behaviors enhanced after long-term practice of TM and
 begin to act them out. High Oxytocin levels explain the obvious envy
 present when TMers put down practitioners of other forms of meditation who
 get more scientific press than TM does, or who find it easier to find new
 students than they do.

 I think there is meat here for a real study of the effects of
 meditation, and how it can seem to produce positive results, but *at the
 same time* seem to produce other, far less positive results.

 Of course, no one in the TM movement will ever be willing to undertake
 such a study, because if it turned out to prove my hypothesis, they'd have
 disproved one of Maharishi's primary pieces of dogma: TM is 100%
 life-supporting and has no negative side effects.

 And y'know...Oxytocin even explains WHY they believe such dogma. Oxytocin
 increases *trust*, and the willingness to believe what you've been told to
 believe.

  Seems I recall now the scorpion nation precipitation happened as it
 became evident and was pointed out to Maharishi who was then holed up in
 his location with his cultivated groups of upper income followers that some
 Danish and UK'er TM teachers were out in the field teaching TM to common
 people for less than the set retail prices then. When these independent
 rogues then banded together that was seen as really going too far rogue and
 some really serious treachery too. Maharishi came down on that like a ton
 of bricks. Damned scorpions.

 If you recall correctly, I guess we now know for sure what maintain the
 purity of the teaching really means. Since these teachers were teaching TM
 *exactly* the way he taught them to, using the full puja and all, he
 couldn't have been upset about them distorting the teaching in any way.

 He was upset that they were cutting into his cash flow.

 bullshit answers to questions nor always take the TM party line and he

 residence course was an arrogant, abrasive, abusive sorry son of a bitch
 and while I have not seen him in years either, I bet he still is - has

 You can't accept that the long term meditators can have anything wrong
 with them that can be attributed to the practice itself, so you have to lay
 it off on factors that, by the TMO's own PR should have been eliminated
 with TM and its adjunct programs. Yet you continue to excuse TM and the TMO
 and say there are mitigating factors. If its upbringing, the practice of TM
 corrects those factors, that's what the TMO says.

 So how do these behaviors manifest in a long term TM'er? Those more
 esoterically minded lay it off on personal karma yet we have been told by
 the Grand Liar Marshy that TM practice releases karma. Look, either TM
 works AS ADVERTISED or it doesn't. And it is obvious that it doesn't. So
 you have to make excuses. I have always acknowledged that TM is an
 enjoyable practice for some people and some people are very decent folks
 whom I have known who are True Blue Believers, but not because they do TM.
 As to TM teachers, its the same thing. If they would have been decent
 people without TM, they are with TM and if they are asses without TM, they
 will be asses with TM.

 One example is John Briganti, used to teach in Charleston SC - I have not
 seen him in many years, but when I first met him on the first residence
 course I ever took, he was a down to earth very decent man who did not give
 bullshit answers to questions nor always take the TM party line and he
 treated everyone he met with courtesy and respect. Gene Speigel who was in
 charge of the Atlanta TM Center when it was the Area Capitol in charge of
 the TM Centers in several South Eastern states and who taught my third
 residence course was an arrogant, abrasive, abusive sorry son of a bitch
 and while I have not seen him in years either, I bet he still is - has
 nothing to do with TM either way. Except for one thing:

 It sure seems that those who are natural sons of bitches like Gene

I hope Barry told the reporters all about the levitation events and other

   As much as I appreciate your call for decency it seems you've fallen in
 the same trap as the Turq who believe there are tons of lurkers here
 eagerly awaiting his raps.  There aren't. Only a handful of people read
 this stuff.

 While this may be true, I happen to know that at least four of them are
 reporters, because they have written to me offline asking me to comment on
 stories they're working on.

 You forget about Google, and how it tends to make recent discussions of
 the thing you're researching pop to the top of its hit list.

 For the record, I have steered all four of them to more appropriate
 sources for the information they're seeking, since I haven't been part of
 the TM organization for so long. I am hoping that at least a few of them
 will finally break the story of the pandit project as the
 multi-million-dollar profit-making machine it really is, raking in the Big
 Bucks for yagyas while paying the pandits pennies. *Literally* pennies...a
 maximum of 63 cents per hour. That is the story that Goldstein and the TMO
 tried the hardest to hide during the recent pandit riots furor, so that
 is the story that most needs to come out.

 You''ve always got it figured out Michael.
  Doesn't matter how many twists and turns you have
 to make, the conclusion is always the same.  So what if
 the TMO has adjusted their message, or their pitch?
  That's what organizations do.  Maybe the

 I don't think it's right or healthy for you to say such negative things
