    Robert Forte, The Softer Side of CIA Psychedelic Mind Control |407|

    I should add perhaps, that I've always felt that these discussions about 9/11 are at least 2 steps lower than the subject that we are really discussing - which is whether the materialist perspective is really distorting our appreciation of reality. If you take that idea at all seriously, it kind...

    Well I wasn't joking in the sense that I have heard that argument put forward, but I wasn't taking it seriously! TES - I liked your image - did you make it, or find it somewhere on the internet? David

    One of my comments about 9/11 theories, is that the physics of these extreme situations is probably hard to predict - for example, a candle fired from a gun can penetrate a wooden door. Therefore I maintain few people - maybe nobody - can predict exactly how a building will fall in situations...

    I think the Democrats are saying something like that about President Trump! David

    Alex Tsakiris (Skeptiko) vs TJump, are NDE's reason to believe in non-physical minds?

    I thought for a moment that you had had Trump on a podcast :) David

    Quantum Brain

    I agree with that. Furthermore, physicists have combed through what a quantum computer can and cannot do (if a reasonable one is ever built) , and as I understand it, the most it could do, is to speed up some processes that can be performed more slowly on a conventional computer. Quantum...

    Right! On my PC that one-word link barely showed all! Appologies to Sixmorph. David

    Did you mean to include a link in your post? David

    OK - I just wanted to get clear what it was you were saying - that is a reasonable explanation! I am guessing that you are retired from the CIA or related organisation. Obviously, don't answer if you will get prosecuted or whatever. The DOJ and FBI certainly seem to have had bad apples near...

    Well I suppose I am asking for your take on what happened in those Syrian gas attacks? I thought you dismissed the idea that they came from the Syrian government - so who do you think was involved? Davis

    Again I pretty much agree with that, except that, as I was trying to point out before, that leaves the need for some other word (quasi-conspiracy?) to cover a related phenomenon. A quasi-conspiracy is something where large numbers of people know the truth, but somehow act as if it were not...

    Hallucination

    Sorry, I grabbed a Hoffman link rather carelessly, and that particular link is on my "to read" list - it does get difficult. I suspect a lot of his ideas could be expressed in a simpler way, but he works with a pure mathematician! He takes evolution by natural selection as a given, and as you...

    Hallucination

    We like cats, but I have a friend who takes exactly your view - he hates them! I have often tried to reconcile this in my head. I suppose some people do much the same - think of bull fighters - and anyway, producing meat (and dairy products) involves cruelty that may last a lot longer than the...

    Hallucination

    There are, of course a small number of shared NDE's, where someone at the deathbed actually shares part of what is actually a DE for the other person. I have a feeling Bob Monroe reported something like that. David

    I certainly agree about that - and I wish the 'Left' would realise that simple fact. David

    I do agree with that, except that I wonder just how unified the CIA is. I mean if there are things going on that even the POTUS is not supposed to know about, that already implies some fragmentation of control. Yes - I also expected them to 'find' something in Iraq. Since we are all here...

    Don't worry - after all politics is not what this site is primarily about anyway. Also the past is the past, and we both seem to agree about the value of President Trump right here in the present. I like the US, and we have spent many happy holidays exploring your wild natural scenery out...

    Hallucination

    Well I think this is the point to deal with first. NO evidence is ever logically enough for any conclusion. That means that ideologically committed people are usually not persuaded by evidence of any sort. This is exactly why I value this site, we don't have a set of beliefs - OK the site has...

    Hallucination

    Ideas like this have been proposed, but as I see it there is a big problem - you have to assume that animals do things analogous to us humans, but that the mechanism by which they happen is utterly different. Thus humans (and cats) engage in courtship behavior prior to mating. Now we know what...
