    Graham Hancock, Carlson, & Shermer on JRE

    I'mfamiliar with that theme from other sources but don't remember it from the book, I do remember the discussion about fairies in days of yore corresponding to alien visitations in modern times Or something like that!

    Debate on British morning TV between Psychic and Magician

    I think that's quite a helpful theory:D also alarming:eek:

    Debate on British morning TV between Psychic and Magician

    Perhaps if I change inconsequential to 'of little consequence in the wider scheme of things' I dunno really, the more I ponder these things the more unknowable it all seems and i can't come up with any concrete points:eek:

    Debate on British morning TV between Psychic and Magician

    What if when you die you suddenly see that all that happened in your life was as inconsequential as dreams often seem once you wake up? All the grinding suffering and anguish that we humans endure, you die, shrug, pft whatever....it fades like a dream

    Debate on British morning TV between Psychic and Magician

    I agree and I hadn't thought about that before I made my dream analogy! However, if we suppose that in the after life a much bigger picture is revealed to us then maybe it is hopeless to try and extrapolate from physical life in order to image how we might behave having passed over? Just too...

    Debate on British morning TV between Psychic and Magician

    Why would we expect communication with the other side to be clear or easy to understand? Assuming (for the sake of argument) that there is another side then it's inhabitants are surely in a different state of being, a different dimension. Might it not be akin to trying to receive an analogue...

    The Dark Side of Paranormal Phenomena? [Resources]

    could the meditation have helped in the recovery from the stroke? If so I wonder if the urge came from something in your subconscious which understood that meditation was a necessary part of the healing process? Maybe your occasional meditation serves as a kind of maintenance? I've never really...

    The Dark Side of Paranormal Phenomena? [Resources]

    oh totally Steve, but it is the bbc:eek::D quite annoying really, meditation is a huge subject and some of the experiences, whilst unpleasant were also very interesting...he just sweeps it all into a file marked 'meditation can damage your mental heal' no mention of the paranormal...it's the...

    The Dark Side of Paranormal Phenomena? [Resources]

    off on a slight tangent but there was a recent bbc r4 program about disturbing experiences arsing from meditation http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0738hm2 perhaps small internal factors can tip the balance and determine whether you have a positive or negative nde/oobe, as per chaos...

    Mod+ Would you like to participate in a Dream Experiment?

    Mod+ Psychedelics & other mind altering substances -> Culture, Theology and Therapy [Resources]

    I'm not sure that the analogy with illegally produced whiskey quite stands up? Isn't a distillery a bit of a faff (and dangerous?) to set up and run? To grow your own dope you just need some compost and a seed or two that you picked out from your stash the last time you rolled a spliff (or so...

    Jung, Blake, Wasps and the Dreamscape

    oh I see! It's interesting to think about how dreams may reveal the underlying archetypal nature of things, also interesting to commune with your dream self and see where it takes you. I can certainly relate to the experience of waking up with a 'light bulb moment'

    Jung, Blake, Wasps and the Dreamscape

    Not sure what to say about that Gabriel, most of the animals in my dreams are lions, with occasional visits from now deceased pet dogs. Do you think the dream was triggered by the wasp buzzing?

    Science & Mysticism of Dreams [Resources]

    sometimes I just observe, other times I will 'incubate' dreams, ask questions, try to spend more time in the liminal zones, hypnagogic especially. My impression is that the dream self is willing to work with the waking self, if I take an interest in my dreams they will take an interest in me...

    Science & Mysticism of Dreams [Resources]

    I have also kept a dream journal for several years and have found that future events appear to be woven in, sometimes random insignificant things, sometimes things which are of some concern to me. Mostly events from one or two days ahead, sometimes a few months ahead. Although I find it...
