this would, logically, preclude an acceptance or understanding of how things like ESP or psychic ability would/could work
so, by corrollary, all "past life" visions are imaginary or old movies you saw when you were 12
they couldn't exist if you hadn't "inserted it" ALREADY INTO THE MIND
but I believe that consciousness is "non-local" -- ie outside our minds . . . in something very similar to a giant data grid that some of us, due to our access code/security clearance whatever, can "tap into"
