Jimmy replied to Fred Hampton's discussion 'The Meditationist'
"To the text highlight in bold, I'm going to whole-heartedly disagree. I think that's the entire point of eastern philosophy; in Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, etc. That there is a fundamental underlying experience of what Hindus refer to as…"

Jimmy replied to Fred Hampton's discussion 'The Meditationist'
"I agree. I mean, meditation experiences or psychedelic experience are simply, by themselves, just experiences. It's what you bring back from those experiences and make practical in the natural world/universe/multiverse that we share. As for…"

Jimmy replied to Fred Hampton's discussion 'The Meditationist'
"While it is true that the brain is "always doing chemistry," what these studies and speculations I'm referring to are highlighting is a very specific sort of chemistry the brain has the potential of doing that is unlike any other…"

Jimmy replied to Fred Hampton's discussion 'The Meditationist'
"Well, this is precisely my point. That the "persuasive empirical descriptions" are one and the same with the so-called "drug-induced state." You see, because you produce these chemicals naturally. So, what I was attempting to…"

Jimmy replied to Fred Hampton's discussion 'The Meditationist'
"I don't know if you've read Dr. Rick Strassman's book "DMT: The Spirit Molecule," but he makes a speculation there that what meditation may be is the induction of your body's natural endogenous N,N-DMT. So, the…"

Jimmy replied to Hunter Goodman's discussion 'God?'
"Even Richard Dawkins is what he calls a "De facto atheist" which means he believes it's highly unlikely that there is a God, and so lives under the assumption that God does not exist. However, what he doesn't say is "God…"

Jimmy replied to John Burrows's discussion 'Critical analysis of Terence Mckenna's ideas'
"Well, this is another area I'd like to understand of Hoffman's. I did read his original notion at EgoDeath.com, but Cyber Disciple seemed to suggest that he's slightly refined his perspective, but has it changed from what it…"

Jimmy replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'What would you consider evidence?'
"I don't think we're specifically talking about the God of Abraham in this particular thread. It's worth pointing out that in most English-speaking countries, when people say the word "God" the most common notion is the God…"

Jimmy replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'What would you consider evidence?'
"Matt Dillahunty has given an interesting answer to this question. He said the honest answer for an atheist of what they would accept as evidence would be "I don't know" which supposedly frustrates the hell out of theists, because they…"

Jimmy replied to Unseen's discussion 'SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT'
"I saw that, too, Belle. Reg, you're separating yourself from "the universe." As Carl Sagan once said, "The cosmos is also within us. We're made of star-stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.""

Jimmy replied to Unseen's discussion 'SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT'
"The truth is not even cosmologists know how the universe will end or if it will end. The cyclic model one of many end-scenarios for the fate of the universe. I'm not sure if it's commonly accepted among cosmologists, but a common one…"

God's Plan Isn't It ?

"@ɐuɐz ǝllǝıuɐp  Well, this is only if you assume that there is no such thing as the "supernatural." There is a perspective in which the supernatural can be described in terms of these higher dimensions as espoused by M-theorists. For…"

Jimmy replied to John Burrows's discussion 'The entheogen theory of religion'
"While Huxley doesn't speak about psychedelics in "Perennial Philosophy," he does speak of these kind of experiences in terms of mystical experiences and mysticism. Alan Watts borrowed the term "cosmic consciousness" from…"

Jimmy replied to John Burrows's discussion 'The entheogen theory of religion'
"I have a sort of different perspective on this. Since you've mentioned Gautama, I suppose I will start with Buddhism. If you look into Buddhism, Gautama isn't necessarily emphasized as the one appointed individual who is a "special…"

Jimmy commented on Steve Armitstead's blog post 'Do atheists believe in spirituality?'
"@Steve Armitstead I'd be interested to see how a blog like that unfolds. That thing I mentioned about Tracie, I actually found the clip in where she mentions this point-of-view of retaining the belief in God, but dropping the religion. Tracie…"

Jimmy commented on Steve Armitstead's blog post 'Do atheists believe in spirituality?'
"I've had a conversation like this before with a cousin of mine. It ended up over me wanting to research the etymological roots for the word "spiritual." Does it pre-date religion? Did arise mutually with religion? It's really…"

Jimmy, before you go too far with Brian, do recheck the bannable offences in the TA Guidelines.  I don't want you to trip over number 4 by mistake.

Thanks

Strega
