Yes, these are easy and *convenient* explanations, but they don't hold water, primarily because such selective thinking, self-deception, memory reconstruction, confirmation bias has not cropped up any other substantial instance. So why would it crop *only* when I have unexplained and aparrently 'psi' experiences? Frankly, its just as much of a stretch as an actual 'psi' event. I'm not buying it.
