Please don't imagine that I'm putting forward eldritch experiences as
evidence for psi or spirit--most of them probably have quite commonplace
explanations of the sort we all can enumerate in a few seconds. However,
if psi *is* ever generally accepted and suitably theorized, people will
surely backwardly modify their assessment of some such events, which
after all *might* be due to more than chance coincidence, paradeilia,
forgetfulness of disconfirming instances, etc. It's a bit like
evolutionary biology or, better still, history: you usually can't
*predict* something from first principles, but after it happens you can
often see how and why it happened, and observe that this comports with
your general theory (if it's sound).
I liked the rainbow description! Yer a poet, Rafal!
