Is it just a case of.....???
I watched this video a while ago............





............ and today I thought of it again. The thought that came to me was all these feelings of "spirituality" I have had throughout my life (through meditation and other means)...... is it really all just a case of me engaging more in my right hemisphere of my brain........... or is it my left hemisphere telling me so?????

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

So... are you thinking that feeling all spiritual might be just having a mini stroke?

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Maybe not having a mini stroke.

I understand that I am limited to my nervous system........ that I can only experience to within certain boundaries.

There has been times when I have felt "connected" with everything around me....... Id even go so far as to say connected to the whole universe..... These feelings I could talk about for years but probably never come close to describing in the detail I would like for you to understand. Obv in time this led me to investigate things like Energy........ Chakras....... etc etc to try and shed some light on these experiences.

Im just thinking that maybe it all can be explained because my brain is slightly engaging towards the right side more........ giving me these "feelings" of an "experience"

What's more believable:

Jacking into the cosmic consciousness

or

Brain throwing up weird artifacts?

Artifacts is a programming term, can't think of a better way to describe. Basically in a program sometimes (especially in graphics) you get an unexpected result which doesn't interfere with proper running of the program - like if you're drawing a line and every now and then the color of one pixel is wrong. That's called an artifact. They come up because of things like that computers can't handle real numbers, really, although they can fake it pretty good...

Evolutionary brain I would expect to throw up lots of artifacts 'cos anything which doesn't interfere with reproduction is perfectly OK.

That was a cool TED talk. I love her description, I could feel it Smile

So we are both the I and the we. I like it! It is fun to quiet the left hemisphere and trip out, but you get too trippy and you may lose perspective, which I think the left provides. Thus, balance Smile Always good to take the middle path Big Grin Leads to nirvana. Ommmmmm.........

Bemore....I really saw this video as indicative of mind operating at levels beyond our encased brain with the latter perhaps a miniscule aspect of the former. Big Grin

Yeah, Leary really pushed the boundaries, as to whether he was simply altering brain chemicals or something more profound, I do not know Huh
