While it cannot be proved retrospectively that any experience of possession,
conversion, revelation, or divine ecstasy was merely an epileptic discharge,
we must ask how one differentiates "real transcendence" from neuropathies
that produce the same extreme realness, profundity, ineffability, and sense
of cosmic unity. When accounts of sudden religious conversions in TLEs
[temporal-lobe epileptics] are laid alongside the epiphanous revelations of
the religious tradition, the parallels are striking. The same is true of the
recent spate of alleged UFO abductees. Parsimony alone argues against invoking
spirits, demons, or extraterrestrials when natural causes will suffice.

Possession", The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. XII, No. 3, pg. 255

Mr. DePree also expects a "tremendous social change" in all workplaces. "When
I first started working 40 years ago, a factory supervisor was focused on the
product. Today it is drastically different, because of the social milieu.
It isnt unusual for a worker to arrive on his shift and have some family
problem that he doesnt know how to resolve. The example I like to use is a
guy who comes in and says this isnt going to be a good day for me, my son
is in jail on a drunk-driving charge and I dont know how to raise bail.
What that means is that if the supervisor wants productivity, he has to know
how to raise bail."
-- Max DePree, chairman and CEO of Herman Miller Inc., "Herman Millers
Secrets of Corporate Creativity", The Wall Street Journal, May 3, 1988
