Charles Hi from Denis. This is one of those few areas of disagreement.

Although you may be correct in what you say , it is only relevant to
people who believe that they have a rational view of the world. To
some of us who view the world from an irrational perspective, proof is
an irrelevancy. It is just another methodology being used to help
individuals come to grips with what is happening in the world.

By the way I do not know who Tony Robbin's is. I have no comment on his
philosophy. In fact i may even disagree with it.


PS in Australian terminology a mild flamer would be called a stirrer.
