Hello Aaron,

The "temporal seizure explanation" is, like "sleep paralysis", a
rather desperate attempt to give mole-hills as reason for

Susan Blackmore, 'researcher' now well rewarded by establishment
and media for being in the skeptibunker - also went for it,
citing Michael Persinger's electromagnetic stimulation of
temporal lobes, by which he 'explains' all OBEs, NDEs and
UFO/abduction experiences.

But when she tried it she could only report crude "physical"
sensations, and for differently placed stimuli, crude "emotional"
sensations - all of which can already be reproduced by physically
stimulating an exposed brain with a prod, or with small electric
shocks. There's no structure to the sensations produced, no theme
or narrative behind them.

Sadly most "mainstream science" is not science at all, just
career hype which, of course _must_ serve the establishments'
agendas - or they don't get tenure and money. This has always
been true - see Galileo (and Bruno).


A current example is the "science" behind the Mars cover-up-much
longer than most realize. For decades we've been told that Mars
was "too small to retain water or useful atmosphere and too cold
for life". This was a long-term, carefully planned media
propaganda campaign - not "science".

That "sterile, arid, frozen" scenario was accepted by the
international safety committee as a justification for _not_
sterilizing the Mars probes. NASA/JPL "scientists" promised the
committee that contamination risks were - for the very first
time - of "no consequence" - search for phrase at


[Since "Perceptions" drew attention, URL keeps changing - to
hide the document? Don't be surprised if it's moved again]

So good Listers rubbing their hands at aroma (see current
NASA/JPL posts) of cooking goose should try to remember - "Truth
will first be ridiculed, then violently opposed, and finally
accepted as self-evident" A Schopenhauer 1788-1860.

They'll simply re-write history - it's worked on every other
issue, "scientific" or not. And the mainstream media are only too
ready to lie for the establishment, they're part of it.

Sorry to spoil the party.
