None of this is the slightest bit relevant to the crazy thing he said.Felix wrote: ↑June 14th, 2018, 10:50 pmThe swami's "crazy idea" was in fact empirically verified, to the degree that such is possible, under controlled laboratory conditions at the Menninger Foundation: he stopped his heart, altered his brain waves at will, produced a temperature differential of several degrees at points only a few centimeters apart on his hand, etc. The study was published in a scientific journal and book, but I don't recall where, I used to have a copy of it.ThomasHobbes: The Swami can say as many crazy things as he can think of. But no matter how clever they might sound does not make them right. In fact this sort of nonsense is beyond empirical verification, or even ontological security, being basically meaningless.

And yeah, oh um, you don't recall where it says he stopped his heart and still lived. No sh1t! LOl
