    Take a break from bad Trump news....

    ....and read up some on Quantum Mechanics" https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613092/a-quantum-experiment-suggests-theres-no-such-thing-as-objective-reality/amp/ In my opinion, this is HUGE, and should not be relegated to some dark corner of the internet. But, such is life: Who has time to...

    The Natural Afterlife / Never-Ending Experience Model

    I hate not knowing, and I suppose I would not purport that I do know any better than anybody else. I think the preponderance of evidence favors something like what I've described. But can studies be replicated in a controlled way? Not really. Is the mechanism by which NDEers have the experiences...

    The Natural Afterlife / Never-Ending Experience Model

    Hi, all, The afterlife is fascinating to me. I believe that Bryan Ehlmann proposes a model here that merges the various lines of evidence quite nicely: https://philarchive.org/archive/EHLTTO A more user-friendly summary here...

    Bell Test Experiment/Quantum Mind

    Apologies if this has been linked previously, as I am new to the forum. Here is an article on a Lucien Hardy (from the Perimeter Institute in Canada) and his proposed use of a Bell Test to gauge Quantum Consciousness...

    Mental Illness, the afterlife, and people's judgements

    I admit to being fast and loose, but could you elaborate?

    Does Anyone Else Wonder This?

    I've thought about this, too, and yeah, in my (very) non-expert opinion, perhaps psi phenomena are an interaction between 4th dimensional beings and our 3rd dimensional experience of the universe. I believe Dr. Degrasse-Tyson actually does sort of assert as much (although of course does not...

    Mental Illness, the afterlife, and people's judgements

    Nothing about consciousness is "broken" in those suffering mental illness. The "mechanism" or "hardware" of the brain may be broken in some way. Quantum affects on the human brain actually seem to explain why (some) antidepressants work, particularly lithium...

    Does Anyone Else Wonder This?

    I googled a bit, and found this: https://new.cseti.org/ He is described as a "ufologist" online. I don't know what to make of these claims, personally. Extraterrestrials are a bit outside of my interest area (I am more fascinated by what science could tell us about human consciousness and its...

    The problem with the DMT explanation for NDEs....

    Got it. Yes, as an adaptation, a pleasant death experience makes no sense....as you note, there is no biological value. To your second point, it's Donald Hoffman that talks about the "magic" of science (i.e., that every scientific theory is based upon assumptions that are granted, and that...

    The problem with the DMT explanation for NDEs....

    I haven't thought about this before, but it makes perfect sense. After all, fear of death is a big part of what keeps us alive (in my opinion). It is purely a biological drive, I suppose. But you are correct, I think, that if we were all to count on a pleasant, hallucinogenic death experience...

    The problem with the DMT explanation for NDEs....

    ....is that it does not work. The pineal gland would need to produce 1000xs as much DMT in a few minutes as it usually produces melatonin in a typical day to explain the affects of an NDE...

    Biophotons and the Connection to Human Conciousness

    Thank you for linking this important research. It seems quite validating of the theoretical consciousness model of Penrose and Hameroff (Orch-OR). I know the two of them have been gradually dismantling the "skeptics" objections to their theory in the past 20 some years, but had never seen...

    ---Introduce yourself---

    Hello, all, I am a proud cat dad, recently exposed to the remarkable research into the "past life memories" of children conducted by Dr. Jim Tucker at UVa (previously, Dr. Ian Stevenson), and since corroborated by Erlander Harroldson and others. This led me down the rabbit-hole of learning...
