I would be interested, but I want to finish this thread before I start reading others, or I'll get totally sidetracked.

I can see that you question everything LadyShea, which is a good thing.

No, he was a family friend. He did go to Canada and saw that expo and when he saw a sign that said the eyes are not a sense organ, it got him interested in the book because he knew that Lessans was also referring to the eyes as not being a sense organ. He also loved the idea of no blame, but he didn't realize that blame and punishment are necessary in our present environment.

In the case of hearing, a nerve ending is being stimulated by frequencies and wavelengths and is then interpreted by the brain, whereas in the case of sight, there is nothing in the light that sends signals to the brain to be interpreted.

No, they both have wavelengths and frequencies but the properties of light are different than sound. I don't know if the fact that light does not require a medium means anything in relation to this discovery, but there are definite differences.

So what are you implying?

It seems logical, but it doesn't work that way according to Lessans' observations. Again, I don't want people to get defensive. If we can't resolve this issue, we should move on and come back when everyone is cooled off.

I didn't mean you personally. But there are some people in here who are ready to blow their top.
