    Thanks for the correction. I thought they just heard sound. But I agree
    with your conclusion that is was also in the heads of the others. Again,
    where else would it be. However, unless I am mistaken again, I am afraid
    you may be missing my point concerning a theistic interpretation of the
    experiments. When I say it was in Paul's and his companion's minds, I am
    not arguing that the source wasn't God. I am saying that religious
    experiences must be in the mind so experimental stimulation shouldn't worry
