The Magicians Game – or How Much Truth Can You Stand

We were having a chat about enlightenment and bogusity at A New Gaia, one of the remnants of the Zaadz Gaia social networking experiment that ultimately failed and vanished. It wasn’t in my group, http://anewgaia.ning.com/group/advancedproblemsinenlightenmenttheoryandpractice but in […]

People can SMELL dominance or neurosis – smell, neurohormones and scent signals and their role in enlightenment and self-development

An experiment regarding smell made the news recently – part of a series of ever more important experiemnst that have been conducted in teh past years that shows how important the sense of smell, and the flow of molecules thru the air between people, is for our social experience and behaviors. So, first, let me […]

“Interview with a Stoic” – stoicism as one of the philosophies of “enlightenment”

I have a saying, kind of a principle, that goes like this, with a few minor variations. “Don’t seek enlightenment, enlightenment will take care of itself. Seek wisdom.”.

One of the classic types of wisdom that reappears in teh human culture streams over and over around the planet is stoicism, in some variation or another. […]

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

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.
