Amazing!

This is interesting glimpse of human potential... Discovery channel's 5-part videos of a meditating boy in Nepal. Also interesting to note is the difference between the world views, about truth / fake - of the local lay public and the media / medical science.

But may be one can read a bit about the different positions on mind and knowledge, before watching the videos in a purely skeptical manner ...

Further, this looks like a good book, I myself need to get one and read it :)
