### Re: The metaproblem problem

Daydreaming is an extremely useful siddhi. This is the scientific explanation so doubtless it is just plain wrong but we will use it because it is simple and people like simple answers even when they are incorrect.

Supposedly it produces the so called delta wave which can make a human creative on demand. Ole Isaac had it in abundance.

A delta wave? What is that?

### Re: The metaproblem problem

Yes, their explanation for things is usually so weird...

If you have ever done it then you know it is the ultimate in visualization. You are in another place, another time, seeing other people, anything you wish. You have created that place and are living in it.

### Re: The metaproblem problem

I do not think they are very challenging, but I think they are starting to attract people

### Re: The metaproblem problem

I have been warned not to put them in yet because Kubuntu can not handle the latest builds. That is one of the reasons I will replace Kubuntu.
