How much emphasis do you place on Alan Bean's artistic sentiments? It is very hard to measure. In the hierarchy of evidence, how much muscle is placed on such an artistic viewpoint over and above the actual photographic evidence?

definitely not hypnogogic as i understand it. But I concede we may not be thinking in the same terms.

What people think as individuals is not the same as science. It is quite depressing how little science is considered these days, whether alternative or orthodox.

It is not a battle settled by science whether alternative or orthodox. it is settled by attitudes, and therefore by politics. A shame but true, and proven by this.

Why would you respect Randi? What scientific work has he done? Does he even understand science - see the Benveniste fiasco for reference. Or perhaps better put - why read an old and relatively unknown magician just because he has a history in the genre? Dawkins is another case is point, sorry, and his beautiful wife, Lalla - only people in UK who follow this stuff will understand that reference.

Rod? Do I still have that Gaelic name on the site? Pronounced Rod Of iron? Well, that sounds fairly typical of the experience. I have been able to reproduce it - not totally but regularly for years. There is a way of thinking and of being that aids its production. But it is not accurate and sometimes it does not work. Relaxation is certainly a key but on its own it is not enough. Working the bod

In your experience did you get strong goosebumps? and a pleasureable throbbing feeling in the forehead?

hi g The similarity of experience I reckon is because humans are similar. Ego comes before the experiences in line with humans being essentially similar. But also Ego, excessively weak or strong, but certainly not within normal range of coping mechanisms for success or failure in life. As without stress of some sort the neurochemistry just would not be there. Of course, for the average man the

"Mohammed is not the only one. I'll throw a few names out: Joan of Arc. Malcolm X. Joseph Smith. Napoleon." Throwing out those names suggests a link to an excess of ego or personality. But the sounds heard - bells, wind, chimes etc are also heard by people when experiencing the aurora borealis and so perhaps indicating a sensitivity to certain electromagnetic fields.

An easier pace sounds like a good idea to me. I read your book and had a lot of questions but the author of the month threads were just too quick for me. If you have less time, a slower pace is much more convenient and conducive to contructive criticism and good-willed debate. Good luck.

So, is there also a time-limit as part of your criteria? If there is one, how long before the time-limit runs out? A couple of days, a year, a decade, a thousand years?

Hi Nephil, Jewish is a much more modern appellation than you give it credit for. My suggestion is more to do with other threads on the subject of the shroud on this site. The genetics of Christ, if he ever existed, is open to question. Nolondil on another thread made some suggestions regarding the authenticity of the shroud concerning the shape of the face on it. I suggested deformity could acc

Jesus had ties in Egypt. Could be descended from Akhenaton and thus may have had a deformity which would conform more or less with the image of the shroud. Beard length and hair length would have been long by our standards. Check out the Life of Brian :-)

Hi Lee, :-) Cheers. I'm sure many people will be relieved. Bad backs are a common problem with computer users and laboratories tend to be pretty heavy. Jameske

Obviously one of the criteria will be blood on the shroud, but how can anyone prove that on a messageboard? That is, what criteria are you prepared to accept as proof on this MB?

It's funny that you should mention 333 because I had that also. Especially with timepieces, video clocks, bookpages opened at random. But it came and went. I've never heard of it being infectious though, which makes it seem a little like yawning, or influenza. Perhaps the unknown rule or rules governing synchronicity have something in common with yawning or influenza. The power of suggestion? An

To paraphrase from the film Amadeus - when 20 people talk one experiences only noise, but if they all sing different words to the same tune it becomes a harmony. You might be interested in the following... Three types of Deja Vu Musicogenic Epilepsy Perhaps there is in these phenomena possibilities for research in synchronicity?

In a nutshell one could view Jung's concept of Synchronicity as an example of the activiation of a vestige of the bicameral mind after the rise of consciousness in human history and experience. The upshot of accepting Jaynes' proposal that many of the early civilisations started with a bicameral mind is that when the breakdown occurred there would still be a remnant, a shadow of bicamerality surv

Sounds like you got that from a text book. But I'd be interested to see actual evidence that O is the oldest or original blood type. Any experiments that support such a viewpoint? Seems to me that it takes TIME for diseases to find a chink in the proverbial armour. So, if O is less susceptible to disease then that might very well make it the youngest. If one takes a look at South America, is th

Hi Lee, O being the original blood type hasn't been tested scientifically either - though it can't really be tested scientifically - a prejudice of the times perhaps - not dissimilar from ones of the past. But if O is less opportunistic for diseases, that can be tested, given the will, and indeed it is a better explanation than the out of Africa argument combined with the distribution of blood

Hi Lee, Hadn't heard that before - could it not be someone else that cut themselves and wiped it on the sacred shroud whilst no one was looking? But does O really originate in Africa? Or for that matter, is there really anywhere that can be ascribed to be the origin of O (not AB, A or B) or A or B for that matter? Or that A and B are later developments? It seems to me that disease that selecti

If the rocky portion of the planet was smaller perhaps water covered much of the planet and expansion created land. Or perhaps the water came from chemical reactions deep in the earth.

It depends on the circumstances. One event or several? If one event then it would be expected to be devastating to all but the most simple life. However, if several events, then not devastating, maybe only debilitating. If such sun storms were long but periodical events then there is another potential cause of mass extinctions - as opposed to mass creations ;-)

Well, we know for a fact that solar output varies. We also know that variation in output will lead to change in strength of solar wind. We know also from logic that storm damage is proportional to proximity to the storm. It is also logical to propose that the rocky planets may once have been gas giants that have suffered sun storm damage in the past. No need for a mass creation theory.

Dont see why earth as a gas giant is difficult to imagine. We know what gas giants look like and it is reasonable to assume they have rocky cores. Strip away a suitable amount of atmosphere and you can have the requisite amount of expansion.

of course it is empirical evidence. the fact that it is open to that criticism says nothing about the relative possibility of smaller rocky bodies existing in the habitable zone - i recall i mentioned the criticism myself. However, if rocky bodies were found - what would be the likelihood that they evolved according to my mechanism rather than according to some other one? An interesting problem.
