I watched some early morning TV recently and tuned into an episode of “The Doctors”. I did not know much about the show having only ever seen it in parts before then. I was not really paying much heed to it until I heard them say that “coming up next” there will be a segment on the merits of “past life regression” as a form of therapy. Good, I thought to myself, a science based program is going to debunk the myths about it and inform people that it is utter “Woo” and as useless as tarot cards readings or angel consultations.
An expert in the subject conducted a session with some celeb I never heard of and I expected that afterwards the “doctors” would explain what was wrong with it. No. That did not happen. They were all for it. When interviewed the “expert” said that even if some people did not believe in “past life incarnations” that at least the metaphor of it was of therapeutic value. The “doctors” were all in agreement with her. Then everyone in the audience, to a big round of applause, was given a free copy of the experts’ book on the subject. It was probably an idiot’s guide. Join us next week for more important medical information!
Then I discovered that Dr. Phil has a son involved with the show. Does anyone know where I left the keys to my spaceship? I want to go home now please.
