Brendan D. Murphy: To explain the visual input we receive and the resultant images we construct and perceive, we have to acknowledge that the brain is hardwired to decode energy waves and their frequencies/vibrations. Where the major differences in belief, perception, and, consequently, awareness come in is that the brain is not passive in decoding the wave input. It edits and rewrites information constantly.

Because there's not much to respond to. The whole thing is a massive case of special pleading, non-sequiturs and useless references. Yes, the brain does weird stuff, we know this. This doesn't mean that "psi" is in any way true. He's missing the point that we can measure and quantify the weird stuff that the brain does, and yet we can't measure anything "psi" related. Because it doesn't exist.

Oh, and his references are singularly useless. He mentions that "60% of 10 year old could read with their ears", and then cites a publication about "psychic evolution". Not good enough, sorry.
