But until you investigation produces evidence, don't expect anyone else to be too excited.
I would think less of you if you didn't pursue it. But until you provide evidence of the existence of 'subtle worlds', don't expect any scientist who doesn't share your experiences to take you seriously.
OK, let's say that I need to provide evidence before getting some professional help in researching what's going on. But how do I get the evidence, if I need research to obtain it? That's circular reasoning.
People are able to get professional attention in case they're sick and doctors don't send them away. But I don't need a doctor, how do I get a scientist to take me seriously? Seriously enough to do some tests? Perhaps I need to find one who shares my experiences, that would be a nice coincidence. But there must be a better way. Is there a magical phrase to catch a scientist's attention without coming across as crazy? Maybe something about a special form of hallucinations, unknown yet.
