LSD's impact on the brain revealed in groundbreaking images

The images, taken from volunteers who agreed to take a trip in the name of science, have given researchers an unprecedented insight into the neural basis for effects produced by one of the most powerful drugs ever created. A dose of the psychedelic substance – injected rather than dropped – unleashed a wave of changes that altered activity and connectivity across the brain.

This has led scientists to new theories of visual hallucinations and the sense of oneness with the universe some users report. The brain scans revealed that trippers experienced images through information drawn from many parts of their brains, and not just the visual cortex at the back of the head that normally processes visual information.

What is Kundalini Energy?

Kundalini energy is not recognized by medical science, and is often little understood even among teachers of Yoga and meditative traditions. It is, however, mentioned extensively in the literature of Yoga and Tantra (both Buddhist and Hindu). Because the word "kundalini" has become widely used, many people, I believe, consider it to be metaphoric or legendary.

If you want to have it increase your appetite, that is what it will do. If you smoke a joint before a hike because you want to make the hike more enjoyable, that is what it will do. Another wonder of Cannabis is that it can improve the “energy body”, not just the physical one. This fact is not merely psychological, it is the actual psychic effect of one person to another, as facilitated by chakra to chakra subatomic energy streams.
