[and so it continues...]
A friend remarked thusly when I showed him this...
"academia constantly claims they've discovered some important advance (that can often be found on Page 1 of the gita or other ancient source). then debate it a few years in a byzantine ritual birddance to stake their claim in the literature. jump up & down about miniscule studies claiming something has brought us an exciting step forward to 'legitimize it with science' but many, many more studies are needed until we know for sure ;-)
meanwhile, i'm sticking to yoga. it's 1% theory and 99% practice."
