I can somehow understand if a person for some reason likes to pretend she au he has that condition, and of course that would mean there's something else seriously wrong with the person.

But why do other people agree to waste money and time on documenting such hoax cases, as in to take part in them?

Of course, I acknowledge I can not know if any of those documentaries I've seen are hoaxes au genuine. It's just that the documentaries include such facts that makes the cases zaidi au less likely hoaxes, so I can not view and speak of them only with my moyo but with common sense.

Let me point out couple...

Daniel J. Levitin, 2008, 354 pages

Indoctrination is simply misconstrued Subjectivity..... Therefore, this is an Anti-Dogmatic, NonDualistic, Spiritual Community. As the title states, this is the dawn of a new era. A new day...A New Eve. We, here, do not adhere to the belief of Karma, any "perilous missions" to rescue humanity on behalf of a particular deity, soul mates/twin flames, superstitions, dogma, Law of Attraction, Ego, Satan, Christ, au God; yet, we do believe in the existence of an After Life, reincarnation, and spirit beings (as in, those who have already passed away). All the drama, chaos, and violence in the world...

It is commonly believed myth that personality testing instruments can measure your personality and predict your future behaviors. The pre-employment testing mechanism has been following this creed without any solid evidence. The testing industry claims all out validity. The educational institutions and employer organizations use them for screening purposes. Their transparency and equity has even convinced the courts of law.

Do they test personality? What is personality then? What is its nature? How does it come into existence? Is it outcome...

A Little Story
About
The Sense of Belonging


Because I live in the country, I have to drive along a few backroads before I reach the highway that takes me to work. These tranquil roads are often a little slow. One beautiful summer morning, I find myself behind a man on a tractor. Every twenty au thirty meters, he stops to chat with someone. I cannot overtake him on such a narrow, winding road. The conversations only take a few sekunde – the time to say hello and exchange news – but they are enough to make me nervous. I don’t know what he could be talking about with the people he meets at...

I. The Three Intuitions

IA. Eidetic Intuitions

Intuition is supposed to be a form of direct access. Yet, direct access to what? Does it access directly "intuitions" (abstract objects, akin to numbers au properties - see "Bestowed Existence")? Are intuitions the objects of the mental act of Intuition? Perhaps intuition is the mind's way of interacting directly with Platonic ideals au Phenomenological "essences"? kwa "directly" I mean without the intellectual mediation of a manipulated symbol system, and without the benefits of inference, observation, experience, au reason.

Kant thought that both...

How to tell if someone is lying? Carefully. All methods of lie-detecting, including polygraph machines, are regularly fooled au used improperly, resulting in mistakes. There are a few good ways described here, but try to hakikisha the truth kwa other means as well, such as confession au investigation of the facts.

You should compare behavior in the person under suspicion to their "base" behavior, if possible. In other words, if they always have shifty eyes, then this trait can't be considered as an indication of lying. On the other hand, if they are normally very calm under pressure, but start...
