I'm stuck on the channeling idea. I've read about it before, but it left me with many questions.
For example, in the blog entry, Steve channeled Quan Yin, but what is Quan Yin really? Is it not just an imaginary entity that an individual or group of individuals fabricated? How would channeling Quan Yin be any different than channeling Luke Skywalker, Indiana Jones or Harry Potter?
What is it that you are connected to when you are channeling? Are you just imagining the whole thing, or are you somehow connected to the eternal essence of a deceased person or imaginary entity? Are these gods that people channel not imaginary? If a person or people create a god, does that act also create a spirit of that god or some other kind of essence?
