Whatever else Yogananda was trying to explain, he stated quite plainly that oxygen atoms (for example) are transmuted into some unobservable form of energy. You acknowledge this fact, yet nonetheless repeatedly insist, without specific examples or arguments, that I do not understand the subject. Whatever.
I have already explained, and the above remarks again make it clear enough, why the “dream breath” remark is irrelevant: calling the process a dream breath does not alter the empirical content of Yogananda’s description. As well, notions of multidimensionality are irrelevant, for much the same reason: a 3D observable “morphing” into other, unseen dimensions would be observable - it would look like the 3D object just disappears.
