Five Stupid Things About Noetics

Great video, and thanks for sharing!

Its that unattributable unverifiable "knowledge" and subsequent crap like "Authorial Legitimacy" that rubs me the wrong way most about that kind of stuff: they'd have to know in their heart of hearts or in some part of their mind that what they do ostensibly is morally or ethically a grey area...

Even conceptually, if you were to use combinatorial linguistics + extend the principles of darwin etc... (the monkeys & typewriters statistically producing shakespeare thought), that'd still follow closer to scientific methods than would the gnosis... Its the classic argument of wisdom vs knowledge.

Flipside of the coin though, what about the Diploma Mill phenomenon, and mandating that knowledge is the only authority/legitimate path?
