    Greetings and pardon the intrusion,

    Below is a post that recently appeared in                          
    alt.consciousness,4th-way. 
    This is a newsgroup largley devoted to the discussion
    of the ideas of one G.I.Gurdjieff -who was primarily
    concerned with the field of human consciousness and
    it's possible evolution.

    I would like to be able to post a response to refute
    this absurd claim and would eagerly welcome any
    feedback regarding the mechanisms that he postulates
    -such as does a meterorite actually have an electic
    charge -if so what is it's magnitude, -does the atmosphere
    actually "recoil" during meteor showers, could nerve "plexuses'    
    actually respond in the manner described -etc.
    
    Any info will be much appreciated.
    Please email responses to jamu at ix.netcom.com

    Thank you,

`   Carlos Dwa
