Relax people, there's nothing really important at stake her. If the experiences are due to an organic problem... if they are due to mediation...

So everybody just take their chill pill and let the show (samsara) go on.

Who's really attached here?

It seems to me that the deepest attachments surround the idea of Dzogchen, and who is or ought to be "in" or "out" of its sphere of influence.

I think it is fair to say that there are some tantric practitioners (and aspiring practitioners) that cherish the manifestation of the inward signs of spiritual attainment to the degree that they resent those who stumble upon these effects without following the accepted procedures, and might therefore consider them undeserving of what is seen as a reward.

It is very likely that these effects have the same psycho-physiological basis in either case, but that they only indicate spiritual progress under certain conditions.

Anyone experiencing these effects, regardless of how they came about, has every right to discuss them on a buddhist forum, and to expect a fair and thoughtful response.
