To paraphrase Lewis Carroll:
I have often encountered a brain without a thought,
But I have never encountered a thought without a brain.
Needless to say, I think the guy's whole approach is junk. He makes no proposal to show the existence of his proposed field. At least there is a national park at the Pin River headwaters, although I'm not sure if the Seven Spanish Angels can dance there.

He makes no proposal to show the existence of his proposed field
He postulates a special field for mental or spiritual things. It may turn out at the end of the development of this inquiry that the postulated field is identical with something we already know in a scientific way.
Looking at this field from outside presents the usual array of science memes, but looking at it from inside, where we actually are, presents something that is the flip side of science. Sometimes I like to mention that the real world is not the physical world, it is the legal world [Logos.] Lately I might say that the moral/legal world is the first world and the world you see as you drive down the highway is illusory. But neither of these is the world of thought, or is it?
Where are you Timothy Leary? Outside, looking in?
