david forbes... THANKS FOR POSTING ALL THIS INFO.... I REALLY APPRECIATE IT !!!!!!!!........
I HAD NO CLUE JIM CARREY HAD A "SPIRITUAL AWAKENING".... AND NOW IM READING AND WATCHING ALL THE VIDEOS ABOUT IT.....
Here is someone talking about the fact that we create our own reality with our own minds. Change your attitude -- change your mind-- changes your reality.
So CHOOSE your reality and you will create it ! You actually see this said a different way on these motivational programs late at night. They say something like -- stay positive- be positive- and your life will become positive -- or something similar.
Actually they are right. But you dont have to buy anything -- you have all the power within you to effect the change or change your world view.
YOU came here for an important reason !
This isn't just someone who is into transcendental mediation. He is a physicist. He is worth listening to.
He will take you through a theory that he believes - that God is the final unified field that physicists are looking for with their atom smashers.
I liked his talk - not to complicated - just keep a little attention and he will guide you through it.
Rupert Sheldrake has several videos and books out. Here is a small snippet of what he believes.
CONSCIOUSNESS..=IS=... "LITERALLY"... A "COUNTING".. TECHNOLOGY !!!!!!!!........................ EPITOMIZED IN THE ... ARTIFACT
OF TALLYMARKS ON TALLYSTICKS.....WHICH CONTAIN THE "ZIPWARP".... THE "DIMENSION" OF DESIGN...........
You must always include the likes of Plato, Aristotle or Homer in any philosophical study. I have chosen Homer today !
I should qualify myself here - we are adults ------and any substance can be a poison.
For instance you can probably remember a runner or two who after a full marathon has been so dehydrated they drank and drank more and more water.
And then they died. They died because they fantastically altered their brain chemistry.
Further there are stories along these lines of those in mental hospitals hanging out in hospital washrooms drinking and drinking water
---- why ??? To get high !!! Any substance taken in large amounts --- food, sugar---nicotine - WATER-- can under the right conditions can really mess you up.
I posted this to show that there is evidence that these "trips" that people take (taken under medical supervision) take you some where. This somewhere can be scary or revealing and can be life altering. Where you go is open to debate. But I find it intriguing and it opens a huge number of questions.
If you go on Joe Rogan you can hear him talking about it if it interests you.
There is a big push now for those studying the mind and addictive behaviours and those who are habitual criminals and so on who are now supporting a drive to study these substances because reports are saying that very big changes are being seen in peoples behaviours for the positive when they are (under medical supervision) given the active agent of the right sort of mushroom.
What it seems to do is take you to similar places that those who have NDE near death experiences ( they are very different) but sort of similar. And the person who is a thief, criminal, abuser, and so on is offten changed so much so that they start doing better things, stop smoking, getting jobs, stop stealing and so on.
I read about most every sort o f subject and look at it as science o f some type. Maybe the topic is of interest.
Paul Stamets is the name to google.
I happen to think I could put this guy is so plugged into science, universe, God, medicine, new discoveries, Biology, you name it that you need to know his name. He was on Joe Rogan if you just have to see a less scientific version of him.
