Where's the science?
on 19 December 2016
I was expecting a description of the physiological basis for different focus states, having followed the initial 6 day course. Instead this is a personal account of Robert Monroe talking with other life forms. I must admit finding it rather weird. This book does not explain how altered physiological brain states suddenly lead to out of body experiences and beliefs in other life forms and reincarnation.
I remain puzzled and unconvinced, as I have no logical arguments to grapple with, just statements that at a certain stage you 'know'. Though the hemisynch course was extremely enriching, this book gives me no grounds to believe that the narrative reflects anything else than his subjective experience.
