Is there an aura? Are there chakras? Are we using the correct tools in locating these esoteric, subtle objects? Without the correct tools you won’t be able to tell.
And this, is why I’m often in awe of a good review.
At this point, you’re probably asking: “What does a good review have anything to do with finding chakras?” Well, the answer is: Everything!
Unless you possess the proper skills you cannot be a good reviewer. How can you know if poetry is good? How can you know if a person’s book on history, economics, philosophy, biology and all the rest are valid or pieces of crap? Is the play or musical first class or just repeating a formula? Is the architecture breakthrough or derivative? Is the painting world a million or just splashed canvas?
It depends on your background and experience in the field. That’s how you develop the proper tools.
How do you know if a paper that’s published in the Journal of the American Medical Association or the NE J of Medicine is valid or merely junk science? Vaccine studies, are they valid? Medical texts – are they scientific? Again, it has to do with the correct tools. Some people have the correct background, some don’t.
Some people have conflicts on interest. We must be wary of reviewers who invest in the play reviewing it.
That is precisely what is going on in the world today – politicians telling us whether or not science is valid. Hey, it’s not their field. Whenever you mix politics with ….anything! It gets corrupted.
