I don't have time to review the above tape, but my recollection is that Tom and Dennis got out using Bob's pre-BB technique, which is explained in Bob's books, and that BB for this application was initially developed after this by Tom and Dennis in Bob's lab (which is why Bob's heirs apparently own hemisynch, as a separate entity to TMI, the latter which is a non-profit, ....if I understand correctly, based on a posting by someone here - pls correct me if I am wrong). If one wants to seriously get into BB, or get feedback on it, one should probably hang out with TMI dudes.
It appears that for whatever reason, Tom's focus, apart from gunning for the Nobel prize for physics, is on promoting meditation and becoming love in this PMR, directed intent (healing), .....and exploring beyond PMR, when that naturally occurs, rather than forcing the issue. He has given advice on BB in this forum, but it is not something he goes out of his way to promote, and he warns against overuse, though this is a moot point for most of us still PMR bound, at least consciously.
It is possible that most MBTOE associates, once achieving NPMR capacities, would rather bomb around in NPMR than hang around this forum, discussing the model or answering my surveys about such. That being said, as far as this forum is concerned, no-one has stepped forward to say "I tried Binaural Beats and had my first OBE experience". I think part of what is going on is that the experience of NPMR is so profound and so unbelieveable, that few are prepared to talk about it, especially in a public forum.
The necessary crumbs have been laid in the woods to follow, and you follow them, or you do not, end of story...I suspect there is some of that going on. It seems to me at this point that trying to achieve lucidity in dreaming, is probably the most realistic first step, as gaining an OBE state from lucidity is apparently relatively easy.
For those with the money and time, a trip to TMI would likely be a good investment. A TMI person told me that very few are able to follow the TMI CDs on their own, and require the commitment of being at TMI. I presume Raduga's workshops are active in Europe. I see Moen is active and there is an institute north of Tampa that is running a workshop with him this month.

We should probably have a broader discussion of this, hopefully with input/advice from the "travelling" community.
