Five important features of the MBI
(or Many Bubble Interpretation) given and used in our presentation http://youtu.be/lh0ZF0oDUv8

Firstly, our results are not simply anecdotal. Simply anecdotal results have so often been a problem to those wishing to explain and understand views on consciousness. Our presentation (ref 1) used the Yates Equation which derived from the results of Antel and Haans. and can be repeated by anybody.

Secondly, we have borne carefully in mind the statistical problems. I refer for example to the work of Alex Reinhart (2) which applies to the use of so many medical and fMRI results, where proper statistics are simply ignored or misused by so many authors. Our presentation uses the well known 'Zeeman catastrophe machine' to provide an example of how this can be done to establish a useful starting point, without tangling up the matter in a plethora of p values before doing anything at all. And it also points out how early devices like the Dreammachine have been the easy victim of such statistics as those of Reinhart. At best, much more work would have been required there for satsfactory results.

Thirdly, we have provided a way to resolve basic and serious problems in expensive space research work without going overboard at the start in expensive equipment and procedures.

Fourthly, we have pointed out how our methods expand the ideas the medicinal idea that ideas so far rather scientifically inchoate in detail but quite possibly important in such ideas as "meditation research" as referred to nowadays at Mountain View (3).

Fifthly, without inclusion of the qualities of the human mind as explicated in the JME MacTaggart A series, both the basic logic and the mathematics of the Theory of Mind are woefully incomplete. The MBI resolves this matter. Otherwise, to use any Theory of Mind is like trying to start a car with an empty gasoline tank.

All this is hardly surprising as at this time, there is no real understanding of the mind and brain in modern neuroscience.

I am disturbed by many things in Neuroscience and related matters, and have recently written briefly about this fact. I imagine I will have to take time posting material to a high impact journal. If anybody knows which would be best, I would very much like your recommendation. Here is an URL with brief details of my current work..

We use the Ramsauer-Townsend method which it is hoped will lead to an extension of Grof's ideas on Shamanism. This experiment is being tested world wide and we would be delighted if you can share with us and doing the experiment, also getting others to doing it. Our simple experiment is at   http://goo.gl/yNYvSc

Jeff Woods, please do not spam with silly science fiction.  I have already sent a long serious post to cover such matters. If you cannot use Google Plus, I am afraid I cannot help at all.

For many years we have been doing research here and could do with a further airing. Here at IFS (Goa) we believe that the mind is not the brain, and that people do have free will . This can be shown now by physically measured results of a non anecdotal type. This can help to build an Alcubierre Warp Drive Star Ships and a lot more.

On this day, February 19, the birthday of the great Statesman of Maharashtra, Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, I am happy to inform everyone that the Saraswat Institute have just selected my paper "Experimental Philosophy, Astral Projection and the Science of Spiritual Biology" for the 2015 Conference in April at Kathmandu. Jai Hind !

I am disturbed by many things in cognitive sience and related matters, and have recently written briefly about this fact. I imagine I will have to take time posting material to a high impact journal like 'Physical Raview X' .
