This is the best interview with Jean Leidloff, author of the Continuum concept, anywhere. We have made a terrible mistake about what human nature is.

James W. Prescott

Sensory Deprivation & The Developing Brain - One of the best overviews of the collected works and research of James W. Prescott, PhD. There are two fundamental issues.
