In this question I recieved several answers that were far from what I asked, and had very little effort put into them.
After having one bounty expire unrewarded, the user Ryan put a second bounty on the question.
I am working on providing a through answer to my original question, and was wondering if any feedback could be provided. There is still a lot of detail to be added, and I am going to continue working on it until it is as complete as my knowledge and resources will allow.
I really have not provided new information to myself, as the book I am using is an old favorite of mine. I was hoping that with feedback anyone that knows more about these stages could help me edit and add detail to the answer.
I have a 4 CD lecture on the Bardo given by Robert Thurman that I plan on re-listening to tonight, and adding any new details appropriate from it to the answer.
