I have posted over 500 times, and I don't think more than three of my posts have included other people's work.

But that is not the point: if I simply "work out" things on my own, you don't accept what I say as legitimate evidence. If I refer to outside sources, you still don't accept it.

This seems to be going around in circles.
If you want a discussion then take out parts of the experiment. Write them out.
State what you agree with or dissagree with.
State why.

From what I wrote.
Do you disagree with the part about the body fat?
The part about the meditation?
Adaptation to cold?
The mind use during this adaptation?
How do you think it is used?

Then state your views.
