[Bonus] Discussion on Kickstarting the Mind Sciences Revolution through Paranormal Abilities

B. Alan Wallace, 09 May 2010

In this juicy sunday Bonus, Alan answers a question from our friend Noah about why wait to kickstart the revolution in the mind sciences? Why not get an accomplished Yogi to demonstrate his paranormal abilities under scientific scrutiny? Maybe just a little bit of levitation, walking through walls, multiplying themselves, disappearing… The usual.

You can be sure that what follows is a a very thorough analysis of this subject, from several perspectives and with some possible outcomes. Very interesting for those of us who have sometimes asked that question ourselves!

Anyone want to guess who is depicted in this Thangka? Hint: I’m his fan.
