This is for Thinker, but for everyone too, just curious to know if you have thoughts on TM. I see from doing a search on the Couch that Starjade mentioned it briefly.

I have friends who grew up in a cult that practiced TM, so they have very negative associations with it. Just came across this youtube video where David Lynch talks about TM, so I'm curious now about it. Any thoughts?

I listened to the clip and got to the phrase "Unified Field" and saw "Bull Shit", his use was NOT what the 'Unified Field Theory" is. The Unified Field Theory is the idea that one theory would encompass and explain all in physics, it has nothing to do with meditation and spirituality which is what TM preaches.
