"csp" is clearly working overtime as a Apologist for Eckhart Tolle, and is actually doing many of the same tactics as Tolle, one of them being creating a web of confusing thought distortion.
Eckhart Tolle does this for only one reason.
If Tolle were to have a specific Mindfulness Practice, or whatever, then people learn it, and then never come back! In his early years, he learned he had to keep the Customer coming back, to keep the money coming in.
So he learned and decided to just weave a confusing web of nonsense and contradictions to confuse people, then promise them Enlightenment if they followed ECKHART TOLLE personally. He then records hundreds of hours of CD's and DVD's and he sells thousands of dollars of his endless yacking to people.
As far as hypnosis, that is EXACTLY what Tolle is doing. As a matter of fact, Tolle Tranced-Out rambling, breathy-soft voice, sounds a lot like Warren Jeffs, the Leader of the polygamist cult now in jail. These sort of breathy, soft-spoken, passive sounding speakers can be some of the most manipulative.
"csp" makes a point about someone named Mr. John Kanzius, who is using radio-waves to treat cancer? I have never heard of this guy, but to demonstrate how to think logically, I won't do a Google search yet. But the idea is absurd. Radio waves are electomagnetic radiation with a long-wavelength, and they just go right through the body. So it sounds like Quackery to make a buck off dying people. But that being said, maybe there is something to it...and if so, it can be TESTED very easily using the methods of science.
Meanwhile, nothing that Eckhart Tolle talks about can be tested...its religion, and a personal religion around Eckhart Tolle. Its even a personality cult, due to the fact Tolle has people get together in Silent Groups to listen ONLY to Eckhart Tolle for 90 minutes. That is literally a type of systematic mental conditioning of his followers.
John Kanzius: (a quick look)
As of now, nothing is proven. Its still based on a theory. Clinical trials will show whether or not it works. Its basically based on the theory of killing cancer cells with heat. If the clinical trials fail, and if Kanzius then goes on to sell it anyway, then he is a quack out to make money from desperate people.
Also, the same RFG device seems to affect the Hydogen molecule in water...so its hardly a benign device. It could kill people and cause mutations. It has to be tested scientifically.
As of yet, its just an idea.
Notice how this has NOTHING to do with Eckhart Tolle at all?
Eckhart Tolle is not submitting himself to clinical trials, he just makes CLAIMS without any evidence at all.
Its a new age religion, focussed around the cult of personality of Eckhart Tolle, using mind conditioning techniques of weekly Silent Groups where TALKING is verbotten, and Tolle is selling hundreds of hours of CD's and DVD's.
Tolle has nothing to do with science. What he is doing is Antiscience.
