"It can in no sense be said that heaven is outside of anyone. It is within."
-Emanuel Swedenborg -
Swedenborg is an important case of a theologian who went NPMR and tried to interpret this experience from protestant Christian pov.
One of his errors in my view was the refusal to establish a new Church during his lifetime, but one was established later on based on his writings.
Like Spiritualism, the New Church, which is organisation that formed around his teachings, is the only Christian institution that fully embraces the paranormal.
One of my hypotheses is that Tom may be committing "The Swedenborg Error", by resisting the formation of a religion or institution around his ideas, and others will inevitably do so once he has moved on, surely less effectively than if Tom himself was to establish the ruleset himself.

I assume, Randy, that you are trying to drive poor Bette dyspeptic~
Elsewise, what Sainsy said!
MBT is un-religionizable, of course.
Tom simply says "Here's some stuff I figured out. Here's how I did it. It's my theory. Go and build your own, don't take my word for it."
... not much room in that for ceremony, medals, gesticulations, oils and potions, shrines, robes or gospels.
