Erowid Edgar Cayce on the future By Kevin Williams Almost every day, several times a day, for more than forty years, Cayce would induce himself into an altered out-of-body state of consciousness and reveal profound information on various subjects such as health, dreams, meditation, religions, and reincarnation, to name a few. But it was the information that Cayce revealed about the future which he is probably most known for. Cayce believed that these horrible future events could be averted if humanity changed its behavior. So, prophecy is never given for any other purpose than as a warning. Cayce envisioned that a time would come when all individuals would realize their responsibility toward one another a realization that would change the thought of humanity. 2. Cayce received many visions of the future and many of them have already come to pass. 1. In 1924, Cayce predicted the crash of the market after a long bull run during the late 1920's. 2. 3. 4. Cayce gave one of his greatest world prophecies in February 1932.
Drugs and the Meaning of Life (Photo by JB Banks) (Note 6/4/2014: I have revised this 2011 essay and added an audio version.—SH) Everything we do is for the purpose of altering consciousness. We form friendships so that we can feel certain emotions, like love, and avoid others, like loneliness. We eat specific foods to enjoy their fleeting presence on our tongues. Drugs are another means toward this end. One of the great responsibilities we have as a society is to educate ourselves, along with the next generation, about which substances are worth ingesting and for what purpose and which are not. However, we should not be too quick to feel nostalgia for the counterculture of the 1960s. Drug abuse and addiction are real problems, of course, the remedy for which is education and medical treatment, not incarceration. I discuss issues of drug policy in some detail in my first book, The End of Faith, and my thinking on the subject has not changed. I have two daughters who will one day take drugs.

Cacti Vaults : San Pedro Preparation Years ago in the early 1970s I became friends with the employees of a plant shop in the Seattle University District. What was really cool is that I found out that the owner of this plant shop was also the author, as well as the editor of several fine books such as "How to Grow the Finest Marijuana Indoors under Halides" and "How to Grow Pot Hydroponically". They also published "How to Identify and Grow Psilocybe Mushrooms," by Jule Stevens and Rich Gee. One of the employees and I went to the Seattle Arboretum in 1975 and were playing Frisbee when I dropped the Frisbee to the ground at the Woodlawn Park section of the Seattle Arboretum. As I bent down to pick up the Frisbee I noticed some interesting mushrooms in the field in which we were playing. I then lifted one shroom out of the ground and realized it was Psilocybe semilanceata. My friends at the plant shop told me I would have to slice and cook the cactus for about four hours or so and then drink the remaining liquid.
Scientific evidence for survival of consciousness after death According to Wikipedia.org, "psychometry" is a psychic ability in which the user is able to relate details about the past condition of an object or area, usually by being in close contact with it. The user could allegedly, for example, give police precise details about a murder or other violent crime if they were at the crime scene or were holding the weapon used. About.com's Paranormal Phenomena website lists information about several of the most convincing psychometrists. Stefan Ossowiecki, a Russian-born psychic, is one of the most famous psychometrists. In later experiments, Ossowiecki performed remarkable psychometric feats with archeological objects - a kind of psychic archeology. Ossowiecki described his visions as being like a motion picture that he could watch, pause, rewind and fast-forward - like a videotape or DVD.
Hallucinatory Near-Death Experiences Computer simulation of a recurring lattice tunnel hallucination, or form constant, generated using retino- cortical mapping. Image inverted for effect. Reprinted with the permission of Paul C. Even if we disregard the overwhelming evidence for the dependence of consciousness on the brain, there remains strong evidence from reports of near-death experiences themselves that NDEs are not glimpses of an afterlife. (1) discrepancies between what is seen in the out-of-body component of an NDE and what's actually happening in the physical world; (2) bodily sensations incorporated into the NDE, either as they are or experienced as NDE imagery; (3) encountering living persons during NDEs; (4) the greater variety of differences than similarities between different NDEs, where specific details of NDEs generally conform to cultural expectation; (5) the typical randomness or insignificance of the memories retrieved during those few NDEs that include a life review; Out-of-Body Discrepancies
Consciousness Freedom and the Right to Get High Why do we, as children, want to spin in circles until we’re so dizzy we puke? Or push on our eyelids until we see colors and images? Or choke ourselves until we lose consciousness? Or take extra huffs off of our inhaler, or extra doses of medications? It’s because we all want to get high. The people who stick to the socially approved substances do so because they are the successful products of social conditioning. Why do people think it’s wrong to get high? But that’s because psych meds are intended to get you back to normal, back to the normal waking state of consciousness, because all others are prohibited, and it naturally follows that any chemicals which take you outside that state are likewise prohibited. But when you use a chemical or plant to do something extra-curricular and exploratory with your consciousness, you venture into forbidden territory. “There can be no more intimate and elemental part of the individual than his or her own consciousness.

Numerology Secrets, (wealth mantra) Free-radical theory of aging Strictly speaking, the free radical theory is only concerned with free radicals such as superoxide ( O2- ), but it has since been expanded to encompass oxidative damage from other reactive oxygen species such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), or peroxynitrite (OONO-). Denham Harman first proposed the free radical theory of aging in the 1950s, and in the 1970s extended the idea to implicate mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species. In some model organisms, such as yeast and Drosophila, there is evidence that reducing oxidative damage can extend lifespan. In mice, interventions that enhance oxidative damage generally shorten lifespan. However, in roundworms (Caenorhabditis elegans), blocking the production of the naturally occurring antioxidant superoxide dismutase has recently been shown to increase lifespan. Whether reducing oxidative damage below normal levels is sufficient to extend lifespan remains an open and controversial question. Background
