Listen this metaphysical nonsense is childish. I still have a certificate stating I am a hypnotist. I used to hang with lots of you metaphysical junkies I have seen and heard it all.

I have a whole shelf of books going on and on about this.

Bottom line there is nothing to any of it. It's make believe for adults nothing more.

Loss of oxygen to the brain in any way is traumatic for the brain.

All things labeled as "metaphysical" have been demonstrated to be scams. Do you have something that can actually produce the same results almost every time? Because that would be a first in all of known history.

Research continues to bring new insights in the new brain millennium. Neurons have a cell body, which contains extensions called axons that pass a message through an electrical impulse generating neural signals in split components. Encased in a protective skeletal structure, the sensory column segragates motor neurons that can alter amnesia in rats.
Does this make any sense? Neither do your comments. That's what happens when you cobble information from a web site and try to put it in your own words, fool!
Such a bold assertion, yet no evidence of it. Funny that, you love those assertions without evidence.

I have been a reasearch mathematician for the last 25+ years. I am trained in physics and have worked as a physicist at an accelerator lab. I discuss the ramifications of various experiments on the different hypotheses that are current. My main interest is astrophysics, but there are also applications to accelerator physics in what I have done.

Try again.

That's all metaphysics ever is: bold assertions without evidence.

Wrong again, Infinite Donut Guy.

Infinite quantites in reality - now that's less credible than metaphysics - and you have claimed it numerous times. It's less credible because it's impossible.

There is an abundance of "evidence" for what is considered "metaphysics".



You are a fucking liar, by the way.

Yes, I do have something.

And no, it is not a first.

And no, it has not been demonstrated to be a scam. Ask scientists privately what they think. It's a different answer.

You don't know what you're talking about.

It scares them shitless.

They would have to admit something might exist that they cannot measure. Their measurements have advanced to the point they think nothing else can exist. Hence - the arrogance.

They want to assume for us all - to be the official gatekeepers of knowledge. Besides, the ones on Topix are full of shit anyway.

Another wild claim without any bases in fact. You're chock full of them.

Michelle Funk, a drowning victim, fell into the icy waters of Bell Canyon Creek in Utah as a child. Today she's a normal adult and shows no signs of her traumatic experience - no brain injury from oxygen deprivation even after 62 minutes under water. Moted.

If you know all about metaphysics then you should have no problem explaining how simultaneous time effects the conventional theory of reincarnation. Give it a shot, ape-man.

Really? Business must be slow because you seem to spend an exorbitant amount of time on this forum making assertions you can't prove. LOL!
