    What are some of your pet peeves?

    This is a way Maddy jokes with people, and since others have spent a longer amount of time knowing Maddy they understand this. Maybe it would be best for you to step back (regarding this issue) and just watch how Maddy does this. Maybe you will understand it better then.

    What Do You All Think Of TED...?

    I’d say, body. Yes, anything really. I remember a mantra: We have a body, but we are not our body. We have emotions, but we are not our emotions. We have a mind, but we are not our mind.
  3. No bait Selene, if you're referring to me. I love comparative religion, ever since my first religion teacher in college introduced me to the ways of wild lesbian feminists and their witchy religion..lol. Never could figure out why she was such a loyal Catholic, but I'm kind of starting to get even that now, at least a more mystical type of Catholicism.

    Hi Marcthur You and your former partner had a great business going. I hope she's okay and that you only split up and went on different paths.

    That's really cool, to have such help. It seems, as far as I can tell from what you've described, that he was trying to show you what you are identifying with. What we identify with can limit us. It's interesting, all this talk of the mind as it relates to Science, and how many think if people would just be rational and not fall for the distortions in reasoning that all would be well. Honestly, it's a bit crazy -- in some articles I've read people adopt a religious zeal for this kind of computational representation of the mind. In Yoga, as I'm sure you know, the goal is to stop identifying with the mind, because we are much more than the mind -- the mind is more seen as one of the tools we have, but it is not 'us'. I wish I could say I had great success in not identifying so much with my mind, but I'm afraid I'm pretty much at the level I was years ago when one of my teachers came by where I was stirring a pot of soup in the ashram and said, with his very cute Indian accent, "Luna, your mind is like the soup in the pot, going round and round". lol
  6. Could this be the "utopia" of Yoga? "The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us." ~ Black Elk - Oglala Sioux ~

    Ahh ok, that sounds rather innocent as they know you play games, and so in that sense they are in on the joke or experiment. If someone did that too me though, without my awareness of the experiment I'm being used for, I would feel like they were attempting to gaslight me -- deliberately trying to change my sense of reality for their benefit. I share your fascination with the brain though...in trying to understand just how and to what degree our brains can fool us, and most especially when approval is at stake (either from self or others). *Looks warily around, wondering if an experiment is taking place ;0

    You don't feel guilty about lying to your neighbor, manipulating her, and basically turning her into an experiment? You mentioned doing this to some other friends too, on this thread...they thought you had psychic ability due to you manipulating this outcome.
  9. I'm not sure why you think the attitudes of Lincoln proves some point of yours. Here are the women who started the 13th Amendment calling for the end of slavery:
  10. You may feel goaded, but I am not trying to goad you. I'm simply providing another side to your narrative...apparently you don't like the other side. Nobody is saying national pride or pride in one's heritage per se is bad, but if Hitler were my great great grandfather I certainly wouldn't want others to know it, or assert I should be able to feel proud in the fact he's a relative, or insist I should be able to paint a Nazi symbol on my car...
  11. Could it be because the characters in Star Trek didn't have ancestors like this?

    Haha well I must have a broken brain too, as I frequently can't remember what I read where and who said what Maybe it's more that we're trying to cram more into our brains than is possible..lol. But about not trusting the human brain as it relates to the paranormal, I believe most experiences are malfunctions of the brain (I just don't believe all are). Probably I would have distrusted myself more had I not had the support of other strange people at the time I had the paranormal experiences..lol.

    I would like to listen to that video or read the article...do you have it per chance? While I believe we're headed for a major meltdown with climate change, I'd still like to have some glimmer of hope that we're going to survive...I guess on some level I don't want to believe what's going to happen is absolutely the truth

    I saw what you did there in your edit Originally you said this had not been proven and so it is fantasy. So what do you really believe? Is anything not proven to be true actually false or fantasy in your conception of reality, or is it simply 'unproven' and so neither true or false, as true Science advocates?
