1. I've heard a couple of her lectures

and what she's describing is what happens with deep meditation, the chattering side of the brain is pushed off to the side for a vacation and the other side brought forward. It really is la-la land.

Some drugs could also do that very briefly, but what went up had to come down again. The best thing is that they showed us what was in there if we went looking for it.

3. She's a trip, isn't she. I could see her reliving it all as she told of her

experiences. And it is fascinating.
