Reality Sandwich | Emerging from the Dark Age: The Revival of Psychedelic Medicine The return flight from Switzerland was a mix of hope and solemnity for Rick Doblin, the only American to attend the funeral of Dr. Albert Hofmann, the inventor of LSD who had just died at the age of 102. Doblin founded the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (M.A.P.S.), an organization that conducts legal research into the healing and spiritual potentials of psychedelics and marijuana. He had spent his entire career trying to break through the virtually impenetrable wall of obstinacy that surrounds psychedelic compounds and their potential benefits to society. More than anyone else in his field Doblin, who holds a public policy Doctorate from Harvard, is all-too familiar with what he refers to as the 40-year long bad trip researchers like him have faced dealing with the fallout from the introduction of LSD and other psychedelic compounds to the Western psyche. Why, you ask? The answer, my friend, blew away in the wind. A Return to Respectability
Rules For Writing Blog Articles by Ken Wilson I promised Burcu that I would write something about writing a blog, and try to establish some rules of good blogging. Now I’m worried – ARE there any rules of good blogging? Or is writing about writing a bit like telling jokes about why jokes are funny? I’ll try to find some rules and we’ll see what happens. The above sentence gives us our first useful rule. Or even a phrase. You may think that this is a silly rule, but I think it’s important. So, Rule 1 of writing a blog article – Don’t write dense texts. And here are two more: Rule 2 – Personalise. Rule 3 – Don’t be obsessed with yourself. At first sight, rules 2 and 3 seem to be contradictory. A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about working as a teacher trainer in London in the 1970s. Here are three ways that I could have started the article. I could have started it like this: Back in the 1970s, I was a teacher trainer at International House in London. If you aren’t familiar with the expression yadda yadda, google it. Aaaaaaaargh!
videot Online Games: Literature, New Media, and Narrative About the Course Intended for both newcomers who are curious about video games and experienced gamers who want to reflect on their passion, this course will explore what happens to stories, paintings, and films when they become the basis of massively multiplayer online games. The Lord of the Rings trilogy—the novels, films, and video game—are our central example of how “remediation” transforms familiar stories as they move across media. The course is designed as a university-level English literature class—a multi-genre, multimedia tour of how literature, film, and games engage in the basic human activity of storytelling. Our journey will enable us to learn something about narrative theory, introduce us to some key topics in media studies and cover some of the history and theory of video games. It will also take us to some landmarks of romance literature, the neverending story that lies behind most fantasy games: J.R.R. Reviews of the last offering: Course Syllabus Week 1: Game on! J. 1.
Dream Analysis and Interpretation - Understanding Dreams Twitter for teachers - why you should start tweeting! Englishraven's view of Twitter from the Tweetdeck! I'm sure readers of this blog already know about the Twitter phenomenon, and many may already be proficient and copious twitterers. However, if you are a teacher and haven't joined in the tweet-fest yet, I'd like to urge you to give it a try. Of course, everyone has their own reasons for joining Twitter, and everyone gets something slightly different out of it. For me, I joined Twitter some time ago as part of my usual dabble in new tech and social media things happening around me. Thankfully, Twitter is quite different. For me personally (as a teacher and ELT materials designer), Twitter really began to appeal once I moved back from my 10-year stint in Korea to my home country of Australia.

What Is Thought? By Eric B. Baum, 2004 Text - Physics Forums Library Here are some of my favorite excerts from the new book "What Is Thought?" By Eric B. Baum, 2004 "Looking at mind from this evolutionary point of view makes natural something that some authors defending strong AI seem skeptical about: the unity of self. "Incidentally, if we are going to understand the mind as an interaction of many subprocesses, there is no reason to be surprised that we might have multiple personalities, and indeed there is some question about what it means to have one personality. "Now, it is true that the human mind is by no means rational, logical, or always right, even when it is completely convinced it is. "Consciousness has many aspects. "The conclusion that we do not really have free will, discussed earlier in the context of classical physics, quantum physics, and algorithmic information theory, is after all a very abstract conclusion, of interest only to philosophers and stoned college students late at night. Stanovich divides the brain into three parts:
