Out-Of-Body Experience Research Center study suggest alien abduction stories may be vivid dream experiences

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Having many times had the experience of ‘contacting alien intelligences’ thru the curious methodology of astral projection training, I can certainly confirm that this kind of experience – the vivid sense of communication with “aliens” – does happen during astral projection training and so-called ‘astral travel’. I’m not claiming […]

Tim Leary reappears in Truth Out

Good old uncle Tim gets reprinted by truthout – nice to see him again. His ideas will reappear in time to be studied anew. This snippet starts with some mention of his idea of neurogenetic castes and stages.

After the tribal (familial) and feudal (childlike) stages of human evolution came the industrial […]

Cognitive Fallacy – this should be a primary concern of all explorers of consciousness and the mind

You can fool yourself – and intuition is often mistaken. This is not fashionable to say in certain circles, in which intuition is given a special status. And yes, the brain and mind con do some amazing things, and intuition is often astonishingly right, especially certain types of intuition, in which, for example, we ‘intuit’ […]

Kabbalah Center in the news – and Qabalah vs Kabbalah

I personally am more interested in qabalah than kabbalah.

Qaabalah is the fusion product of the mixing of european hermeticism and memory theatre technology with the bits and pieces of kabbalistic teachings that started to move thru the european noosphere and culturesphere as a result of the religions turmoil that first allowed islam and judaism […]

The oldest human paint factory discovered in Africa – 100,000bce – the birth of art and the modern human mind

One of the topics I tend to emphasize is that the ability to think abstractly, to use signs symbols and language, is THE important human invention that led to the type of complex mind and memory systems (including the external memory systems of language, imagery, alphanumerics, writing, and now digitization) that make our […]

His argument is based on the fact that for more than 99 per cent of human evolutionary history, we have lived as hunter-gatherer communities surviving on our wits, leading to big-brained humans. Since the invention of agriculture and cities, however, natural selection on our intellect has effective stopped and mutations have accumulated in the critical “intelligence” genes.

“I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas and a clear-sighted view of important issues,” Professor Crabtree says in a provocative paper published in the journal Trends in Genetics.

“Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues. I would also make this wager for the ancient inhabitants of Africa, Asia, India or the Americas, of perhaps 2,000 to 6,000 years ago,” Professor Crabtree says.

“The basis for my wager comes from new developments in genetics, anthropology, and neurobiology that make a clear prediction that our intellectual and emotional abilities are genetically surprisingly fragile,” he says.
