What scientific proof do you have that "bilocation" (whatever that means) is 
a myth?

Could you offer references from the Ganzfeld theory and explain what you 
"understand " about it that "proves' that you're denial of "something going 
on out there" has any scientific validity -- other than being just your 
biased opinion or guess. You might also, if you are looking for scientific 
evidence to back up your denial, explain the mechanism of "entanglement" or 
"action at a distance" of split photons -- that quantum physicists still 
cannot explain -- even with the recent CERN experiment that "proved" such 
"entanglement" at great distances is fact. 
Without a consistent (with relativity and quantum theories) topological 
and geometric "Unified Feld" theory, based on ZPE (such as M-brane theory) -- 
any such "material" or 'physical" explanation would have no scientific

What makes such a statement "dualism"? And why is dualism an invalid 
approach to logical deduction from fundamental "principles" -- that also 
cannot be "proven" to be a wrong view of reality? The field structure of the 
monad has been well explained in my theory of ABC -- since any field 
emanating from an infinite energy source in the zero-point must necessarily 
follow the form of dual fields within a surrounding containment field that 
together are a trinity. Since the zero-point is everywhere, all such primary 
fields would be "mirrors of each other." Also, their twin inner fields 
(Buddhi-Manas) which are "functional" on the mental planes, would of 
necessity, as the root of all involutionary derivative fields, be 
representative of all subsequent dualities on the material-physical planes. 
This does not, however, deny their fundamental unity within the trinity. As 
HPB said "The Universe is "both" empty and full, one and many" -- and thus, a 
fundamental duality within a unity.

That says nothing. "Obvious" to whom? As far as I can see, it is a denial 
based on no evidence or logical analysis. Therefore, just your opinion -- for 
whatever that's worth.

Why should such a force or "energetic field of action" be "quantifiable" in 
terms of "material" forces which are limited only to what is measurable by 
means of material instruments? If there is another theory of unified forces 
and energy fields, based on "proven" zero-point energy perturbations, as 
postulated scientifically (through mathematical analysis) in 
Suprstring/M-brane theories (or as theorized in my own theory of coenergetic 
fields rooted in zero-point "spinergy") -- then such "transformational 
formulas" may certainly be possible.

Yes, you can speculate on that... But, the conservation laws are based 
solely on physical forces, and, as yet, haven't been shown to be applicable 
to the zero-point forces. Then, why should the laws of entropy be applicable 
to those forces -- which are, admittedly in some M-brane theories, to be non 
"physical" or non metric in physical terms? These higher energy forces -- 
being of frequencies far higher than any of the forces attributed to the 
electromagnetic spectrum, and thus have velocities far greater than that of 
"light" -- would necessarily be governed by laws far different from the laws 
related to the electromagnetic forces... (As, incidentally, pointed out by 
HPB with references to the "coadunate but not consubstantial" "fields" or 
planes higher than the physical).

Weak argument -- since the forces we are talking about are not "physical" in 
the sense of being measurable with physical instruments. What evidence is 
required? The Casimir effect certainly gives adequate evidence that such 
zero-point fields exist -- even though non measurable as to their energies 
and frequencies. Again, we might point out -- the "physical" conservation 
and entropy laws are not applicable to such fields. If the fields of mind, 
as zero-point energy fields in the "physical vacuum" are progressively much 
higher frequencies (or "point" concentrated) energies than the physical 
fields, and the medium through which they propagate is much less resistive -- 
then they would necessarily have progressively longer lives than the physical

Your denial, having no scientific validity, is therefore, merely an opinion. 
To prove such a denial, you would have to show more positive falsification 
evidence, other than reference to the Ganzfeld theory, which is as far as I 
can tell from the papers on it. is simply a hypothetical explanation of psi 
phenomena from a psychological viewpoint -- with no factual "physical" (or 
non physical) scientific basis -- other than third person experimental 

If you wish to prove otherwise, please quote the appropriate references in 
the Ganzfeld theory that would "prove" his theory valid from a "universal" 
scientific (not simply physical-material) point of view. Even though 
relativity and quantum theories that your arguments depend on, explain the 
nature of physical reality from different points of view, they still 
contradict each other in the realm of zero-point vacuum energies. And, 
neither of them fits in with any sort of valid unified field theory (that 
also must consider the "information" carried by such fields)... Although the 
latest M-brane theory, which verifies the theosophical (and my ABC) view of 
coenergetic, multidimensional unified energy fields, is getting pretty close 
to such a Grand Unified Field Theory (GUFT) that links relativity with 
quantum theory -- by modifying them both in some degree. 

>Hope that answers Daniel's question.

Perhaps, but certainly not mine -- or, I would assume, other thoughtful and 
knowledgeable "theosophists" (not necessarily "fundamentalists" -- which, 
according to your definition, presumedly, are blind followers of the "dead 
letter" as supposedly plagiarized by HPB:-).
