Brain, Mind, and Altered States of Consciousness The conspiracy to reduce consciousness to intellectual awareness of the physical world has been in evidence for at least five thousand years. Over the centuries the mental and psychic powers that only mystics and seers now possess have been filtered out of most people. So we now assume that our narrow, tightly-bound consciousness is normal and natural. "Ordinary consciousness" is "normal" only in the strict sense of "statistically most frequent," not inherently "good" or "natural" as the term is sometimes misconstrued to mean. When contrasted with supernormal consciousness experienced by certain people in specific instances, our current rigid, intellect-based awareness is highly abnormal and unnatural. Reports of Supernormal Consciousness "The boundary between my physical self and my surroundings seemed to dissolve and my feeling of separation vanished. . . .

EuroVelo - the European cycle route network Cycle routes and maps Roscoff to Santander On previous cycling trips we had used 3” / mile maps which proved great. We only carry the narrow strips of map required for the journey. These strips plus a coloured highlighter pen allow us to make route changes on the fly. For this trip, we could only find 4.5”/mile maps which were not really adequate. Many of the small minor roads that are ideal for cycling were not marked, nor were routes through towns. We backed up the inadequate paper maps with Nokia maps downloaded onto a N95 mobile phone.

EuroVelo 15: From the source of the Rhine to its mouth in the North Sea — Eurovélo 15 Pineal secrets - Pineal gland, the land of god. Pineal Secrets: Pineal gland is the true master gland. It is situated between the eyes. It is the organ of clairvoyance, Third eye, the eye of Ra or Heru (God). Biblical Jacob saw God face to face on the island of Pe-ni-el. Its secretes melatonin which is anti ageing in effect and anti oxidant in nature. This also secretes melanin which colours our skin. The pineal gland, the most enigmatic of endocrine organs, has long been of interest to anatomists. The pineal organ is small, weighing little more than 0.1 gram. The pineal gland contains a number of peptides, including GnRH, TRH, and vasotocin, along with a number of important neurotransmitters such as somatostatin, norepinephrine, serotonin, and histamine. Melotonin is the only hormone secreted by the pineal gland. In mammals other than humans melatonin possibly acts as a breeding and mating cue, since it is produced in greater amounts in response to the longer nights of winter and less so during summer.
