What exactly is the how and why of doing specific research so that UNANSWERED QUESTIONS can be both addressed and validated?
I really don't understand the science community being so RELUCTANT (in order to save face and career) to investigate what science may call a "fringe" pseudoscience arena of what may be the most INTERESTING and PUZZLING phenomena that many folks ( including, but not ignoring the Shamanistic traditions) have declared to EXIST?
I can see the faces of your colleagues shaking their heads in dismay that someone should even SUGGEST such an investigation!!! That kind of behavior is what actually puts science ON STASIS with ABSOLUTELY no interest nor conviction to AT LEAST GIVE IT A GO!!! Thus, no advancement is pending, because no one is answering the doorbell, AT ALL!!!
Now you know what I THINK, based on your denials of even the plausibility of mind/ matter research.
Thankyou for letting me share.
