    Welcome to the world of Yoga and Buddhism – not only have they had this one worked out for 5,000 odd years but they also have practices to help you expand consciousness into that boundless state

    I happen to agree with what you are saying, Alan. Culture tends to rediscover principles that have existed for millennia. Why is this the case? Because we must each discover it for ourselves over a incredibly finite length of time–our lives. And we have to rediscover it within our lives as well, because our memories are limited.
