    Thanks for this. It's been my distraction for the past couple days.

    Alex Tsakiris, Four Questions About the Future of Skeptiko |414|

    He sounds like a rare 24 year old in 2019, so I don't doubt he'll continue to do well, as social skills appear to be on the decline. Hate to speak so broadly, but my impression is that 20-somethings these days are diffident and consensus-oriented, and not particularly driven.

    Unless you need the training, the trick is to get into an elite college, and then drop out after a year spent making connections. Seems you get most of the shine from getting in. Course to get into an elite college is rough now. You have to be quite intelligent and driven, a perfect...

    Finders keepers! The $2K lost me at the starting gate. I'd pay that if I knew it worked, but absent that it just broke the mood, spoiled the illusion. Ease me into it a little!

    I don't have much knowledge about magick, so probably shouldn't have tossed that out. My suspicion is that things like water fluoridation, excessive penalties for psychedelic use/dealing, endless war, permanent financial insecurity, a dominant materialist worldview, stimulation of tribal...

    What do you make of NDE out of body (usually pre-tunnel) reports? They are still able to perceive our space time, but can't materially affect it.

    Huge differences in NDE’s

    Yeah I'm no great shakes but I'm sure i could come up with a less sadistic system of soul education if I had God's resources. If he exists, yeah, sadly, he's getting off on suffering.

    So the discarnate being is outside this simulation and hacks it, or some aspect of you and the being co-create that sequence?

    How about that feeling of resistance you sometimes get to thoughts or emotions that arise? If you didn't have free will would that feature of conscious experience be necessary? Why even have the ability to do meta cognition?

    Huge differences in NDE’s

    Yes, I heard about this recently and it was very surprising. I assumed that it was part of the structure of the whole thing, no a cultural artifact. It's a little depressing, so I hope it's not true :D.

    Cool. I infer from googling the theory of night vision operation that the goggles were taken apart and just the screen was exposed to the phenomena directly? Otherwise it'd be interacting with the electrons coming out of the photomultiplier. That's pretty wild. I don't know much about...

    Fascinating. The intuition with EVPs is that spirits are bypassing the transducer and working with the electrical signal or even manipulating the storage medium directly (which means in the case of computer recording they're conversant with file systems and sound file formats). And if they're...

    I'm not sure. I believe there are lower 4th density beings intermingling with us: earthbound spirits, non physical entities. I could say well it's the same space but tuned to a higher frequency. I don't think it's a 4th spatial dimension. Beyond the 4th there seems to be a more...

    You know it's very odd that I would even mention the year, which i was not 100% sure of and didn't look up to verify.

    I don't really think about the mechanics of it that much. I just know they're more important to me than I am to myself, which isn't something I've felt before. When they're selfish or obnoxious, I am irritated and judgmental, but the love is still there. I imagine it would be there even...

    4. Why are we being deceived? In that 2011 movie Limitless, Bradley Cooper finds a pill that maximizes his potential (the 100% of his brain trope). This makes him effectively a superhero because the rest of the world is still at fractions of their potential. While watching you probably find...

    Question #3: What's the relationship between space-time reality and the extended consciousness realm which appears to be beyond time? The obvious strategy would be to consider what we from the higher realm might get from a lesser realm. It has to have some purpose. Knowledge can't be it. From...

    One reason I think social media is particularly discourteous is the like/favorite/upvote system, which incentivizes the pursuit of huzzahs from your tribesmen over engaged conversation or compelling argument. Alex should disable that feature. I do on every board I run.

    I'm quite progressive in a class sense (Sanders support), but I'm not a fan of identity politics or social engineering, and I feel a lot of that comes from the folks controlling the megaphones, staunchly globalist, corporate and pro-Israel. Trump's election was a reaction to that, and I...

    What doesn't vibrate? Ninety % of mass (I'm told) comes from the energy of quark/gluons zipping around. I only use vibration as a stand in for mental/emotional state. I don't have a scientific explanation for it. As for the timelessness of the other side, that has always been difficult...
