Ed, I watched 60 mins of the talk so far. For me personally, this type of 
information is so  immensely interesting. I enjoy hearing about what 
researchers think they have discovered and have yet to discover (or not, as the 
case may be), as far as the brain/religion/meditation go. I find it very 
inspiring but I appreciate that others think it's not necessary. The talk is 
helped along by the fact that the speaker comes across so well and injects 
personal insights. I think I can even overlook his hair style on this occasion, 
which looks incredibly high maintenance........ :)

Rose, I have just completed watching all 100 minutes of the video. It is 
phenomenal - I am dumbfounded! I will be re-watching it at least twice again.
