Thanks for the footage, am scrutinizing it now. It does appear that his hand was searching for something. Or atleast that's what the commentator says
and what some think according to online
No conclusion yet. Reading up on all these fraud. I came across a pretty loud person called Robert Priddy who wrote many things about Sai Baba, almost
all bad, including claims that he sexually harassed men and all the other stuff. So I thought it was pretty bold a claim and maybe there might be
truths to it since its popping up all over the net.
So i dug deeper, undergrad habits, and found out that all the other info on the net repeated Priddy's claim. Its like group think. The claims
snowball until it looks convincing. But there's a saying, that there's no smoke without fire.
However, the snowball eventually hit a wall when Priddy himself boasted about his drug induced trips with '___', cannabis and others.
Robert Priddy's '___' Trip Beyond the mind
And another one I found more amusing about this colourful man was this
Amusingly, Kevin Shepherd (Kevin Shepard Exposed, 2008) said:
“A recent official report has stressed that regular cannabis use can more than double the risk of mental illness, and that a single joint of
cannabis raises the risk of schizophrenia by more than forty per cent.”
However, to be fair to Priddy, he is, according to wiki and other more reliable sources, a researcher in philosophy and sociology in University of
Oslo, Norway and has written several papers before.
An academic, that is to say, whose papers have been published and cited in two academic journals, I believe they are journals cause I can't read that
language and it looks like journals to me. Your work have to be credible in order for it to be cited in a journal for the journal's reputation's
That is a clear indication that Robert Priddy is thinking. And the date shows how recent it is proves that he is still capable of thinking clearly,
more or less. However his drug trips do make one wonder if it is schizophrenia that has taken over in his judgement.
One thing did stand out was that even critics of Baba admitted that Sai Baba's magic was probably real (BBC, 2004).

P.S. References are probably overdoing it but I feel that people need to know where I got my stuff from so they can cross reference themselves and I
invite them to read across the limited materials linked here to present a different opinion. Of course there are plenty more.
Two of the links are blog, hardly the kind of source I'd use but they contain extract of actual contents.
, thank you for the video.
