The Scientific and Spiritual Implications of Psi

Hi all, long time no see. Hope you are all well. I like the new look of the web-site. :D I was hoping to start a discussion. I can think of no better place to have it than here. I would ask you to read this article: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia/ciencia_psycho10.htm In addition, here is ...

http://www.mysteriouspeople.com/Alex_David-Neel2.htm http://paranormal.about.com/library/weekly/aa102201a.htm My thoughts so far are that every mystical tradition has a systematic method of creating 'tuplas', in other words artificial entities constructed out of consciousness, or thought-forms.

I haven't read this whole thread, and so I apologize if what I'm about to say has been mentioned. But I just came across something exciting and I instantly thought of this thread. So I have to share it quick. I am beginning to recognize the hand of synchronicity when it grips me. I think that if the...

Noman, Not much in your post I can disagree with. But I would like to comment on the following: But people do change – move from one category to the other. And that’s the clever part of my theology theory. The configuration of deities does sometimes change – but it is not so much due to acquiring ne...

Noman, Upon further reflection, there is one part of your post (so far) that I disagree with. The only difference of opinion I have is that I don’t think most of the world is capable of, or the least bit interested in, the middle way – and to expect them to be is to invite a grave disappointment. Wh...

But then, they are just at one stop on their own way, no Limbo? Everyone finds what they're ready for... and if they are living a proper life of compassion, being kind to children and puppies and all that, what does it matter? If they're not, then, well :P. I hear you. You are right. But in my esti...

Well here is a little update of my adventures with atheists over at Richard Dawkins forum. They seem to have gotten frustrated with me, and I with them. I got into an argument with the forum admin, and he gave me a 7-day suspension. The argument was about mythology and atheism. I'm partially to blam...

One of the interesting things that comparative mysticism has suggested to me is that many of the metaphors and symbols in various religions and mythologies can be traced directly back to states of mystical consciousness. This is probably the primary reason for so many similarities. The mystic on one...

Yes. I've seen all his video series, I've listened to all his lectures, and I've read most of his books.

He touches on mysticism quite a bit of course.

I would say it is a field of study which looks at the worlds mystical traditions as a unit and finds common denominators and differences. There are a few common denominators, such as 1. similar altered states of consciousness 2. similar methods of achieving these states 3. internally consistent syst...

It's a field of study that's so under-developed, people don't even know what it is! :wink:

Comparative Mysticism

I've been working on comparative mysticism for a while now, and I'm very excited about the potential this field has. It seems to be a very under-developed field. But if it was brought to maturity and then overlapped and integrated with comparative mythology and comparative religion I think it would ...
