  • I live the life of a butterfly…

    A free spirit: I flutter about,

    my desires are honest,

    my needs are modest,

    of my omniscience,

    I am not in doubt… except… I live in my cocoon.

     

    It is a nice cocoon. It has just the right temperature all year around. Even when it is too cold outside or too hot, my cocoon feels just-right. When it rains,…[Read more]

    “So when we offer people our thoughts and prayers, is that a form of lucid dreaming?”

    Maybe???

    My rabbit is named “Harvey” so I can answer this…yes really…I have three rabbits: Pixie, Chichi and Harvey. Harvey is the old one who kept waking me up.

    Well now that you mention it…I haven’t given up on the idea…

    …Had a burning bush appeared and started talking, had some entity given me some knowledge I could not possibly have learned in this life-time, had I awoken with the power to bring back the dead…I certainly would have posited this as evidence. Unfortunately, the banality of my e…[Read more]

    Funny you mention a rabbit because that may have had a lot to do with the experience at least this time.

    My sleep was disturbed. It was 4 am and one of my rabbits, who is real old and partially paralyzed in the hind-quarters, was in distress. So, I was sleeping in his room for the hour and a half before my alarm went off. Each of the six times I…[Read more]

    I had another lucid-dream last night. I have had them before…but this was not just any lucid-dream: this one was different: illuminating some of the mystery, and answering a profound question; and generating more questions?

    Have you ever wondered if you might “not” be “aware” you are dreaming in your lucid dream? You might just be dreamin…[Read more]

  • Yes, good old Deepak…not on my list because he is a person who reasons with clever but fallacious arguments using the language of Physics to baffle with bullshit: the ultimate sophist. You can accuse me of that and I would accept the criticism as a “maybe”…because sophistry is sort of like day-dreaming out-loud…isn’t daydreaming allow…[Read more]

  • First everything I propose here is based on years of digesting a vast array of podcasts, lectures, debates, studies and books. Nothing I am about to say comes from personal experience. I try to meditate, but never get anywhere…I try hallucinogens, but never enough to achieve a disconnect. I have never had a near-death experience(NDE). However, I…[Read more]

  • Somehow the main idea I was trying to convey was lost in the abyss of subjective experience. “Cognition and “religious”, “spiritual”, or “hallucinogenic” visions are to people like “air and breathing”. The history of theism is integral to Homo sapiens. The reason we evolved parallel to belief in a higher power is because of this weird ability of…[Read more]

  • Ok…very interesting…you have had more experiences of the disconnect sort than anyone I have talked to personally… so when I ask the following questions please be aware I seek only education and in no way am I refuting your experience. The point is then that they are not always reported as subjective…

    1: Have you heard about the…[Read more]

  • Its easy to prove the existence of something in the cosmos that is referred to as God by the religious. Just take some DMT. Just do a high-dose acid-trip, (Dr. Christopher Bache) or over five grams of magic-mushrooms or peyote. Talk to a Shaman or a Guru: a practitioner of meditation who has achieved nirvana. Just ask the 100,000 people-per-year…[Read more]

    LOVE, PEACE, HAPPINESS
    Although elusive and hard to really grasp the essence of, I’m hoping the ephemeral feeling of “love” passes through your being on this special day.
    Although merely a word lacking enduring meaning without inaction…”peace” be upon you.
    And “happiness”: my favourite word… although simple in meaning; profound in practice;…[Read more]

  • Kevin:

    I reject large and growing portions of the secular world

    Mike:

    Its that word “secular” that lost me. Does that mean you would rather sanction radicle Muslims fractions who throw every xir from roof tops or the Christian-white-supremist who shoots up a black church? Would you rather be associated with a Catholic politician like Scheer who…[Read more]

  • mike replied to the topic aliens in the forum Science 1 year ago

    Thx… Its my new/original theory; but placing it within a fictional tale (even though I believe it to be more plausible than any other alien theory I’ve heard)…I like this technique. It allows you to say just about anything without having to fact check and has just enough reality and truth to make you wonder…

  • mike started the topic aliens in the forum Science 1 year ago

    Hey there Homo,

    Its me: the alien from another galaxy. The only thing is; I’m not an alien, and I’m not from another galaxy. The interesting thing is that you already have all the science to know that, but just never came to the sensible conclusion. That’s right: your Physicists were “bang-on” with their “Laws of Thermodynamics”. Its true; not…[Read more]

    I have often wondered what it would be like to live the unfettered life of a butterfly. Does a butterfly have self-doubt, worry, guilt, or regret? It seems not. Similarly, a dog’s life might be agreeable; whose greatest concern might be, when will his companion arrive home with something to eat. Does a butterfly or a dog have a consciousness? It i…[Read more]

    “– you still haven’t said what it is that is changing: what property or aspect of consciousness goes up or down a continuum. Do you mean, more or less consciously aware, seen, known, identified, thought about.”

    In the above example, I have just listed half a dozen states of (changing) awareness = consciousness.

    “- I feel this idea is confused, because you haven’t said what defines one level as being different from another. “Lower” or “higher” in what way?”

    Ok, good point; please allow me to clarify.

    Think of a pond in your backyard. As you step in the level will go up, but will change to a lower level when you remove your wet foot. As well, the level…[Read more]

    “As for bacterial consciousness, that’s a bit too far back for me to connect with.”

    Its not that really far back…yes my model suggest countless levels that go back to the original quantum particles that we are evolved from but…
