However, I had never had any of these experiences personally until recently, which is why I'm opening the books again.
Has my mind tricked itself into believing what I want it too, or is there something just beneath he surface that I'm not grasping? That's the question here.
You would posit the former (my inclination as well), but I'm trying to keep an open and reasoning mind for the later.
Thanks for throwing in your lot man, I'm glad you made it to this post.
Have an open mind, but don't be so open that your brain falls out.

If spirits or paranormal events were real, there would be some sort of data out there about them. And if no one had found it yet (weak argument), it would be on you and others to provide this data. That's the only way science can work. It's the best way ever created for people to learn about the world.
These are some great looking links, I'll be checking them out for sure.
