Psychonautics (from the Greek ψυχή (psychē "soul/spirit/mind") and ναύτης (naútēs "sailor/navigator")—a sailor of the mind/soul)[1] refers both to a methodology for describing and explaining the subjective effects of altered states of consciousness, including those induced by meditation or mind altering substances, and to a research paradigm in which the researcher voluntarily immerses him/herself into an altered state by means of such techniques, as a means to explore human experience and existence.[2] The term has been applied diversely, to cover all activities by which altered states are induced and utilized for spiritual purposes or the exploration of the human condition, including shamanism, lamas of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition,[3] sensory deprivation,[1] and archaic/modern drug users who use entheogenic substances in order to gain deeper insights and spiritual experiences.[4] A person who uses altered states for such exploration is known as a psychonaut.

Peter J. Rudy's Blog. Today I’m posting the text of my story, “Laser Shades” for your holiday reading pleasure.

Rudy's Blog

The story was commissioned for The Superlative Light, a photo book by Robert Shults, but it has not been otherwise published as yet. Two news items before my story. The writer and columnist Damien Walter posted “Let the Strangeness In,” a good interview/discussion about transrealism between me and Monica Byrne, author of the excellent novel The Girl In The Road. And, on the same day, synchronistically enough, my film-maker friend Edgar Pêra posted Trans-Realist Maniphesto a video from Lisbon, 1994, with me and good old Terence McKenna.

Consciousness Cafe – Entheogens and Psychedelic Cultural Transmissions

First let me say we were given a copy of the DVD by two dear friends and I did really enjoy the DVD. I agree with them that the imagery is beautiful. But the more I watched it, the more I felt that there was a very creepy message behind it; something just . . . wrong. I would classify Ashes and Snow as sacred contemporary fiction or fantasy, along with books such as The Celestine Prophecy. Along with reviewer Nicholas Marques, I found the scenes of humans taking a nap or playing with cheetahs and hyenas extremely jarring. If the intent of this art is to show that humans and other animals can live together, then we must respectfully show the carnivores being what they are, and juxtapose humans dealing with their violent nature. There is a place where human beings and animals live in peace and harmony, and humans are hardly ever harmed by other animals. I also found the voice-over monologue inane. Accidental mysteries.

Why Daydreaming Makes You Smarter and More Creative

We regret the duplication of material. Humans are a daydreaming species. According to a recent study led by the Harvard psychologists Daniel Gilbert and Matthew A. Killingsworth, people let their minds wander forty-seven per cent of the time they are awake. (The scientists demonstrated this by developing an iPhone app that contacted twenty-two hundred and fifty volunteers at random intervals during the day.) At first glance, such data seems like a confirmation of our inherent laziness. In recent years, however, psychologists and neuroscientists have redeemed this mental state, revealing the ways in which mind-wandering is an essential cognitive tool. Certainly she was losing consciousness of outer things. What does this mean? Editors’ Notes: Healing Sounds Meditation Sleep Hypnosis & Binaural Beats.

Whole Systems

Nature is a whole system. But also an economy, a family, a company, a community, or many other things, can be looked at as whole systems. A whole system view would include all the factors involved and examine how they relate to each other and how they work as a whole. To deal with a whole system we can't leave anything out as irrelevant. Intuition is as important as rationality, we must address both scientific and artistic approaches, both material and spritual needs, the small as well as the big, what we feel as well as what we think, what we perceive as well as what we imagine. Whole systems are dynamic, they change they move, they develop. There is no one authority in the field of whole systems. There is a Whole Systems mailing list for the exploration of whole systems principles, particularly in regards to economic, ecological, sociological and metaphysical transformation of our civilization.

Over the past ten years or so I have been making handcoloured emblems by painting with watercolours copies of woodcuts and engravings from printed books and some manuscript drawings.

Coloured alchemical emblems

In colouring these I made use of my intensive study of the original coloured manuscripts of the 15th to 18th centuries, which have been the main focus of my research over the past years. I have often found that by contemplating and meditating on these handcoloured images one can resonate with and enter into the complex symbolic world of alchemy. I regret that I can only supply these images as these small thumbnails on this internet web site. Earlier in 1999 I did place full page images on this site, but some people just took these without my permission and used them in their own web sites and in other projects.

One person in particular even claimed he had copyright over an image that I painted and is still hanging on my kitchen wall ! 297 individual emblems divided into a series of galleries.

Rites Of Passage is a holistic, spiritual model based on an inevitable journey that all humans go through in a lifetime. This model describes the twelve Mystical Stages of our Physical and Spiritual Evolution. It explores the spiritual peaks or 'points of transformation' in life.

Teleologic Evolution, Intelligent Self-Design, Anticipatory Computing, Local-Global Feedback. Concurrent ontology and the extensional conception of attribute "By analogy with the extension of a type as the set of individuals of that type, we define the extension of an attribute as the set of states of an idealized observer of that attribute, observing concurrently with observers of other attributes.

Teleologic Evolution, Intelligent Self-Design, Anticipatory Computing, Local-Global Feedback

The attribute theoretic counterpart of an operation mapping individuals of one type to individuals of another is a dependency mapping states of one attribute to states of another. We integrate attributes with types via a symmetric but not self-dual framework of dipolar algebras or disheaves amounting to a type-theoretic notion of Chu space over a family of sets of qualia doubly indexed by type and attribute, for example the set of possible colors of a ball or heights of buildings. We extend the sheaf-theoretic basis for type theory to a notion of disheaf on a profunctor. Keywords: Attribute, Chu space, ontology, presheaf, type.

The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon. Article #141 • written by Alan Bellows You may have heard about Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon before.

The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon

In fact, you probably learned about it for the first time very recently. If not, then you just might hear about it again very soon. Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one happens upon some obscure piece of information-- often an unfamiliar word or name-- and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly. Anytime the phrase "That's so weird, I just heard about that the other day" would be appropriate, the utterer is hip-deep in Baader-Meinhof. Most people seem to have experienced the phenomenon at least a few times in their lives, and many people encounter it with such regularity that they anticipate it upon the introduction of new information. Despite science's cries that a world as complex as ours invites frequent coincidences, observation tells us that such an explanation is inadequate. The reason for this is our brains' prejudice towards patterns. Magie du chaos. Beauty and Beautiful Actions.

Nassim Haramein - Sacred Geometry and Unified Fields. Physicist Nassim Haramein presents new concepts explaining how we are all interconnected and can access infinite knowledge.

Nassim Haramein - Sacred Geometry and Unified Fields

“My brain is only a receiver. In the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know it exists.” -Nikola Tesla As early as 9 years old, Nassim was already developing the basis for a unified hyper-dimensional theory of matter and energy, which he eventually called the “Holofractographic Universe.” Nassim Haramein was born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1962. Combining this knowledge with a keen observation of the behavior of nature, he discovered a specific geometric array that he found to be fundamental to creation, and the foundation for his Unified Field Theory emerged.

This groundbreaking theory has now been delivered to the scientific community through peer-reviewed papers and presentations at international physics conferences. In addition to his scientific papers, Mr. The Long Count. E SE IL TEMPO NON ESISTESSE AFFATTO? Why Time Slows Down When We’re Afraid, Speeds Up as We Age, and Gets Warped on Vacation.

By Maria Popova “Time perception matters because it is the experience of time that roots us in our mental reality.” Given my soft spot for famous diaries, it should come as no surprise that I keep one myself. Perhaps the greatest gift of the practice has been the daily habit of reading what I had written on that day a year earlier; not only is it a remarkable tool of introspection and self-awareness, but it also illustrates that our memory “is never a precise duplicate of the original [but] a continuing act of creation” and how flawed our perception of time is — almost everything that occurred a year ago appears as having taken place either significantly further in the past (“a different lifetime,” I’d often marvel at this time-illusion) or significantly more recently (“this feels like just last month!”).

Coincidence is an Illusion - What is Synchronicity? Every action you take creates a ripple in the universe. There is no such thing as chance or coincidence. Synchronicity springs from the deepest source of destiny. Synchronicity is the law of unity. We are all linked through our unconscious. All Coincidences Have Meaning We are connected by unknown forces. Any movement, no matter how small is eventually felt by us all. Energy Cannot be Destroyed Energy Has a Memory According to the laws of physics energy and matter cannot be created or destroyed. Your thoughts are immortal. Consciousness (your thoughts) create everything in your future. Belief is the Trigger Your consciousness can make things happen directly, but a much easier way is to “Organize Available Chance Events” in your favor.

When your vibration matches that which you seek you are destined to collide. Novelty Theory ° A Bicameral Mind. The term was coined by psychologist Julian Jaynes, who presented the idea in his 1976 book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, wherein he made the case that a bicameral mentality, that is to say a mental state in which there are two distinct sections of consciousness, was the normal and ubiquitous state of the human mind as recently as 3000 years ago. He used governmental bicameralism to metaphorically describe such a state, in which the experiences and memories of the right hemisphere of the brain are transmitted to the left hemisphere via auditory hallucinations.

This mental model was replaced by the conscious mode of thought, which Jaynes argues is grounded in the acquisition of metaphorical language. Jaynes theorized that a shift from bicameralism marked the beginning of introspection and consciousness as we know it today. According to Jaynes, this bicameral mentality began malfunctioning or “breaking down” during the second millennium BC. Projects - Whirlpool of Knowledge. Lightshow - Tutorials. Crop circles.
