Re: The brain as a portal to parallel worlds

An avatar is a representation of a mind in a world. A body, a pinpoint of light. It is a body of some kind of appearance of you for other minds in a world.

new study says that a network of observers creates physical reality

A new study says that a network of observers creates physical reality. https://bit.ly/3k5WFPH Is there physical reality that is independent of us? Does objective reality exist at all? Or is the structure of everything, including time and space, created by the perceptions of those observing it? Such ...

Re: New study shows very low doses of LSD reduce broadband oscillatory power (even gamma)

The study above, mentioned by 5MeO-DMT_Philosopher, is with microdosis of LSD; I wounder if it's also the case with macrodosis of LSD; (reductions of broadband oscillatory power (even gamma).

Re: New study shows very low doses of LSD reduce broadband oscillatory power (even gamma)

Re: What causes bad trips?

From a study from the Netherlands about psychedelics and the brain and what's causing good and bad trips: (1) Higher levels of medial prefrontal cortex glutamate were associated with negatively experienced ego dissolution.

The brain as a portal to parallel worlds

This is a link to a brief essay about the brain and its access to parallel universes. Parallel universes are only accessible through the mind via the brain in my hypothesis. Our mind always takes the form of an avatar, as in virtual reality worlds when we put on VR glasses. The body in which we appe...

Re: why denying the existence of The Light and The Tunnel among academia?

Even Bernardo doesn't want to talk about The Light' and 'the Tunnel' among academia. It will be laught at and has no place among this academic envoriment. Yet so many people have seen it. Bernardo talks about 'mind at large', but he doesn't talk about the light for which there are so many eyewitnes...
