    ADHD

    So I read the links, both with material and ideas I'm familiar with. I'll deal with Jon's first: nothing I disagree with there, but it's a perspective most educators/parents are not ready to consider, yet. I want to find a way to translate it into mainstreamish for teachers ;) And if I would...

    It's a weird thing. I almost never had lucid dreams before dmt but after it started happening spontaneously. I have to add that prior to my first encounters with dmt I had no preconceptions. Only later did I go through the Mckenna catalog, and Strassman etc. At this point in life I totally...

    ADHD

    Thanks for the links! Will look at them later, but for now I can say that I sort of agree with the bs viewpoint. I have the diagnosis myself and after innumerable tests both neurological and personality, I can say that for example the MBTI model, limited as it is, accounts for a lot more than...

    Glad you liked it :-) It is a practice I am able to do in the sleeping dream state, but not in the physical dream state. Why the intense interst in NDE's? Apart from the obvious of course. And I couldn't agree more with each to their own, the thousand eyes of the Great spirit. Cheers

    ADHD

    I don't know if this seems interesting or relevant to anyone here, but I'll give it a shot. I'm writing a lecture on adhd in order to provide schools with different perspectives and practical examples of how to deal with adhd in a productive manner. So, I'm trying to collect as many...

    Dr. Alexander Wendt and James Corbett Clash Over Inevitable One World State |301|

    No I meant that what is called "involuntary distractability" in adhd'ers is a genetic remnant of hunter's ability to pick up more signals because of less filters and greater sensory acuity. This is shown for example in tests where kids with adhd invariably pick up a lot more from the...

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    I agree with your points, but I'm still hoping for a way to bridge this thing.

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    Okay, let me rephrase the original question as this seems unproductive. Can anyone help me phrase the question of primaries so that objectivists might understand it?

    Well, it demands more distractability in order to pick up signals from the environment.

    Young Infants Have Perceptual "Superpowers"

    Makes me think of extreme sports people microdosing mushrooms to heighten visual acuity and reaction speed. Since dmt is part of the brain system, could it be that less is excreted as we narrow the senses?

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    Why give up? Couldn't you be an example for me to follow, by providing new phrasing so that I can see your point?

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    It's not that I think they should. I wanted to have a discussion about how fundamentally different motivations can arrive at the same political conclusion. Phrasing it differently was exactly what I asked for.

    Dr. Alexander Wendt and James Corbett Clash Over Inevitable One World State |301|

    Hi Alex. Yes it's hard to take a stand on this without ambiguity. Is history an unavoidable unfolding of karmic relations and evolutionary necessities? Or is destiny in our hands? Or both? I agree that the current situation always demands something of us, usually a choice. I am a member of a...

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    Well, given the answers I got to this question, you are not stating something obvious. You see, they didn't reply to that as you are implying with your pope example. They completely failed to register the question, simply because they refused to define their terms. They just kept saying that...

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    Yes I getya, but I explicitly asked them if they thought, as objectivists, that consciousness is a product of matter. Isn't that quite clear semantically?

    Hi Manjit! Hehe well... Ok. I was 14 back in '92. I was playing the leading role in Alfred Jarry's "Pere Ubu", and during the production we were shooting short films to include in the play. One of these scenes was an escape by boat. It was February in Norway and pretty cold. My costume was like...

    Do that! I'm not so sure about geological theories etc, but the findings and theories concerning hunter-gatherer culture vs farmer culture are quite compelling. Reminds me of Daniel Quinn's "takers vs leavers" idea.

    Libertarianism, Objectivism and the Hard Problem

    Recently I engaged a bunch of so-called political consequent liberals in a discussion about objectivism, as that seems to be the dominant dogma of the party. But when I called it dogma all hell broke loose. I wasn't trying to offend anyone, I just assumed that people were familiar with basic...
