Re: What does Bill Meredith think about Olcott's Experiences with the Masters?

Now I see what you want to discuss. You don't really want to discuss
Olcott's experiences or discuss your hypothesis about them and your
reasons for "adopting" that hypothesis.
You want me to look critically at my own biases and prejudices in
the process. I see: this is the whole issue to you.
No doubt, I have prejudices and biases. And you don't? I assume
that you might have them too. And since Steve Stubbs has a similar
opinion to mine about Olcott's experiences, I guess he also has
prejudices and biases. What about Muehlegger? We could spent weeks
discussing not only my biases but everyone else's too. :)
But the real question is: can all of us put aside at least for the
time being those "preferences" and "biases" and try to rationally
discuss and understand Olcott's "alleged" experiences.
Maybe you will say this only reflects one of my "biases". Perhaps.
Bill, when I have the time to study and compare your hypothesis 6
with the views of others, I will be most happy to discuss that
hypothesis with you.
