Spirituality underlies scientific researches form the side of neurology, which measured changes of brain(better: head-skin)-waves during meditations and breath-exercises. At the same time, of course, spirituality was 'scientific' reduced to a neural level. So exercises of spirituality were abused for modern life to reduce stress and to compensate the shortcomings of modern life('stress').
The TM-Meditation is a simple Mantra-Meditation. The connection of alpha-waves and coherence of brainwaves with samadhi is unproven and not probable. More probable are Gamma-Waves as a sign of higher states.
flying-siddhis were never proven nor presented, The not even by the guru Maharishi himself.
