27 April 2023 - A reader sent this excellent comment:
Having done some channelling myself as well as sitting in circles and listening/reading other people's channelled information, I have developed an insight, perhaps not original but here it is: a channeller receiving information is analogous to rainwater coming thru a roof. Rain when it hits the roof is relatively pure but when it filters thru the roof tiles and ceilings below, it picks up stuff — dirt, mold, dead bugs, etc. Channelling is subject to the same limitations; every channeller has some dirt and dead bugs in his roof that the "rain" is going to pick up.
Well, if the reader has some issues with channelled information being accurate, there really is little alternative. As consciousness/UFO researcher Grant Cameron has said, we are not going to find out anything without talking to "experiencers" who often receive telepathic information. [I added the emphasis. —Patrick] When science studies lights in the sky and other data that can measured objectively, all they find out is that something is going on. So it's the telepaths or nothing... :-)
Correct on all counts and I would add, just as with any human ability —all sports, writing, singing, designing, cooking, painting— many differences can be found in even a small group of people. Often the distinctions are subjective.
