I would really rather not turn every Thread into a debate on the whole concept of Paranormal or Psi experiences. You have the right to your opinion of
course but it is getting a little redundant. But one more time I will respond to your comments.
Rational thinking is the only thing that should be done
Rational thinking is vital, but only half the story. To be fully human you must also embrace your Emotional side as well. Intution, despite it's
'fuzzy' nature it is every bit as powerful an Intellect. From it flows all Art and much of the Wisdom of mankind.
Intuition is the 'knowing without knowing' and while it makes little Rational sense it does work, and for me that is the only valid test.
Gut feelings lead to confusion and questions.
Indeed, and what is so wrong about those? Questions are the first step on the path to Wisdom, to learn anything first you must ask a Question.
Confusion, ok not as good, but still valid. We should never become so cautious that we are afraid to get a little confused. Again, this is a
necessary step on the path to knowledge. This reminds me of a quote from Frank Herbert:
"To claim absolute knowledge is to become monsterous. Knowledge is an unending adventure at the edge of uncertainty."
The human brain may be a strange lump of cells, but it is still just that and keeping that in mind, how can one rationally suggest that it can project
fields or communicate across space in some exotic fashion
The brain is physical, but it is also more. Right now we are sitting in a Forum full of people who know this from direct personal experience. You can
only maintain your stance because you choose to believe that all of us, every single one, is either deluded, lying, or plain mistaken.
You claim that we believe these things so that we can feel special but what are you doing. You, Raideur, know all the answers, what did you say last
night 'I can explain everything, except the Brain which nobody understands'. What is that except setting yourself up as special, the only
'rational' one of the bunch?
But you should keep looking, eventually something will happen, someone will come along that you, despite yourself, will believe. And then like the
rest of us you will begin what will be a neverending quest to understand the most important question of all 'Why'.
