Oh well, we can both shout 'you just don't get it' from our respective

I am asking for some valid demonstration of these 'powers of the mind'. I
am not attempting to create thought experiments (and I have no doubt
Einstein could demonstrate to Newton the validity of his concept....), I
am honestly and rationally and respectfully asking you to provide some
facts. Apologia are not facts. Zigzagging around the 'measurement is
impossible' excuse is, in this forum, unforgivable. Every yogic response
is measurable by the proper equipment, and has been. If you are equating
subjective impressions of sensory data with great revelations about the
workings of the mind, you are deluded.

You have to first show a valid example of these 'powers of the mind'. You
haven't. In fact, no-one has in recorded history. Myth, fable, anecdote,
and the tales of fervent believers are not, and have never been, valid

What do you think you are demonstrating to me?
