Human experimentation is criminal/ end of story
Defending the guru game is a lost cause at this point. Especially in the context of Gurdjieff (and his creepy imitator EJ Gold) who virtually confessed to using human beings as guinea pigs for a series of experiments. That dreadful legacy must be set as a warning to naive followers to beware, and begone. Read the material, but never submit to any authorities here. It is a dangerous possibility to be used in an experiment by a rogue sufi like Gurdjieff. And EJ Gold is an eager beaver following in its footsteps.
