Re: Consciousness

Hm, the fact that this speaker has written a book where he claims that heaven is real based on a subjective near-death experience makes me doubt his qualifications..

Re: Consciousness

I find this topic very fascinating personally. And that's why psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, DMT, mescaline, ect. Are there to help you explore

Re: Consciousness

I agree, I've studied NDE's for a long time now, decades, and still find them interesting. I had one and saw the light too, that's why I'm into lasers now, just kidding about the lasers, but afterwards I chased after trying to crack the door open once more with entheogens but could not reproduce the experience through the use of molecular keys, unfortunately.

Re: Consciousness

Curious, but definitely not 1-hour 11-min curious. IMO presentations like these need a short abstract in the beginning like lab reports.

Re: Consciousness

Well, for those who are interested in such things maybe they will, otherwise who would? I won't watch long YouTube vidoe's unless I'm already into the subject myself. I had an NDE-like experience about 20 years ago where I saw a light which communicated with me. Real? Well, that's for others to decide!

If you would explain your NDE in more detail, that would be interesting.

Did you see the light? If I put me NDE here in public you all would have your own from laughing, no doubt. I've noticed most of this crowd aren't very open to such things.

Mostly because you're making all these wild claims and posting absolutely jack shit to back them up (as above) .. lasers are generally considered a scientific topic, and as such, majority of users here aren't going to believe anything unless you can provide at least a slither of information/research regarding your claims, as with basically any scientific topic.

It's like me saying I could build a laser out of grass blades and PVA glue .. I might think I'm right in my own head but as far as everyone else is concerned, it's a crock of shit unless I can actually post some evidence .. or perhaps it's because I can't actually build a laser from grass blades and PVA glue, thus there is no evidence/proof research .. sound familiar?

Re: Consciousness

Thank you for speaking for everyone else, it's much easier for me than having to talk to each and every one here

Chill out, it isn't that important, is it? You seem angry.

Edit: I have no doubts I could build a laser out of some blades of grass and glue but I will still need a diode, a lens, wires and a battery or power source (a lemon and a couple of dissimilar metals can make one) but I'm wondering if perhaps some morning dew on the blade in the right place might be usable as a lens? I know, you would need photo's to believe it but then you'd accuse me of using photoshop. Human beings are very good at refusing to believe anything they want to deny, exceptionally good at it, especially if it clashes with their own world views and then telling you how "everyone" agrees you are a liar. What I think you ought to focus on is not what I'm saying that makes you angry, but why it makes you angry. Is it that you think some of the things I've communicated are wild claims, or that I was bold enough to dare say it? Maybe both. Exactly what wild claim did I make?

PS: If I really cared about reps, I wouldn't tell you the truth. I find it curious people neg you when you dare to the tell truth, what does that tell you about our society? It tells me that sheep want anyone who isn't a sheep to be one, otherwise they see you as a threat, perhaps a wolf? I'm not here to attack anyone, I've never once done that here unless provoked and even then not an attack on any ones character but rather telling them I don't like it and exactly why. If I'm supposed to kiss your back sides when I see your butt in my face, no thank you, neg me instead because I'm not doing it.

I disagree with this, I tried psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, mescaline, many years ago when I was less experienced and more adventurous. I think these drugs can be dangerous both mentally and physically. You could bring on a real NDE when your not expecting one.

There are some things that many people would never accept without first experiencing it themselves. Many millions of people have had an NDE but how do you prove it to someone, there's no way to bring back evidence. Its too easy to say it must have been a dream or the person was comatose and didn't really die and come back, also many NDE's/OBO's happen when a person is very ill or injured and is still alive, again easy for others to claim it was a dream or imagined.

If anyone feels so inclined you are welcome to kiss my butt, my butt now has a rash on it from sitting at the computer for too many hours a day and now its starting to itch frequently, I just bought a \$30 memory foam pillow at Walmart that I am sitting on right now, I hope that takes care of my problem because if it gets worse I may have an NDE.

Re: Consciousness

I can't see the last post I put him on ignore for attacking too much. However, if you want to read my NDE it has been published in three books now and I will PM the story to those interested, but no public posting and please, those who have already read it, don't do that, OK? Too many critical thinkers in here will just be critical. I say NDE because I believe it was brought on by a medical condition, but I never went to the hospital, so that alone is enough to dismiss it in many peoples minds.

Re: Consciousness

I thought I had a near death experience and saw a light at the end of the tunnel, but it turned out I had just fallen asleep and my head ended upon my wristwatch and it's backlight was shining through my eyelids. XD

Actually my first thought was "what jackass is shining a light in my face?" before I realised it was my watch :P
