anyone ever heard of this?
anyone ever tried it?
michael persinger writes about it in a book, neuropsychology of religious experience.
says he uses his transcranial magnetic stimulator to zap parts of his brain to induce `religious experiences`.
i would appreciate it if someone could tell me more about this
I will experience a state of cynical bliss closely resembling a religious experience in it's own right, if only I can live long enough to see this item selling for $19.95 on some late-night infomercial:
"Tired of endless boring hours of meditation? Fed up with praying that never works and only leaves your knees feeling achy and stiff? Now enjoy the benefits of religious experiences any time you want them in the comfort of your own home! People of all religious persuasions are living happier, healthier lives thanks to the Excstaticator!"
(Insert testimonial sequences from a young urban white Buddhist; a grandmotherly Christian woman, a New Age mother of three and her happy children.)
"The Excstaticator is safe and effective for all ages."
(Insert some white-smock testimonial concerning the health benefits of frequent religious experiences and the safety of transcranial magnetic stimulation.)
"Don't miss out on this exciting offer! Call within the next 15 minutes and receive your free double CD-set of soul-stirring prayers and chants from around the globe."
(Camera focuses on some dapper yuppy deusch-bag sacked out in his easy chair with what looks like a futuristic salad-bowl on his head. The wailing of an Islamic "call to prayer" gives way to the rhythmic drumming of an American Indian spirit-chant.)
Yes! Please tell me someone is looking into the commercial applications of this technology!
