Thanks to apt, this is impossible unless we make apt annoying
(and hence reduce its utility). I don't think moving it shall make
much of a difference to people, apart fr5om the annoyance of having
to change mirror scripts and source lists.
While it cannot be proved retrospectively that any experience of
possession, conversion, revelation, or divine ecstasy was merely an
epileptic discharge, we must ask how one differentiates "real
transcendence" from neuropathies that produce the same extreme
realness, profundity, ineffability, and sense of cosmic unity. When
accounts of sudden religious conversions in TLEs [temporal-lobe
epileptics] are laid alongside the epiphanous revelations of the
religious tradition, the parallels are striking. The same is true of
the recent spate of alleged UFO abductees. Parsimony alone argues
against invoking spirits, demons, or extraterrestrials when natural
causes will suffice. Barry L. Beyerstein, "Neuropathology and the
Legacy of Spiritual Possession", The Skeptical Inquirer, Vol. XII,
