A discussion at the popular “Night of Science” event in late January drew a large crowd to Helsinki University Library café. The theme of the talk was paranormal experiences in Finland.
[BEGIN TRANSMISSION] From: Draculi-Levithon IV-0094736 Commander of the Alpha Draco Regional Contingent Ephraim [Canada] & Mannassah [USA] sectors Solar-3 [Terra] Infiltration force Station-D, Level-VII To: Rashtikarsh-Draculon IX-0006476 Central Commander Alpha Draconian Galactic Intelligence Force 664th degree Terminal #3 - Central Nexus Command Planet Typhon, Alpha Draconia Glorious and Exalted One, I send you my humble greetings. Might and power be to your holy and majestic name, and to your service as director of Galactic Intelligence on behalf of his great and omnipotent highness, the Lord Emperor of Alpha Draconis, and arch-regent of Lucifer. Ever since our illustrious race in the most ancient of times joined in alliance with the Luciferian gods, also known by the derogatory hu-man term "poltergeists", we have -- by reason of our advanced genetic sciences, our collective intelligence matrix, and the supernatural abilities which our Luciferian benefactors have themselves bestowed upon us -- enjoyed physical, psychic and supernatural dominion over the hu-man species. Our father Lucifer was wise to bestow upon our supreme race the dominion over this world that his arch-nemesis Adonai had so presumptuously given to the hu-mans. True, it might seem that the hu-mans had ruled the surface realm of planet Terra since ancient times when our species was driven into the subterranean depths of planet earth. However this perceived dominion and freedom is only an illusion [this history and the reality of our inner domain of course having been sequestered from public consciousness by our agents on the surface for our own protection]. We have, as you well know, inspired various elitist fraternities which have been carefully designed and structured so as to initiate any hu-man who might stumble onto certain technological secrets which otherwise might upset the balance of our infrastructure of dependence and control through which we keep the hu-man vermin in a state of submission. The purpose of these fraternities also being to eliminate those who would betray these secrets to the profane masses of hu-man cattle. Yes, like cattle, humans do serve our purpose, and their purpose, as you well know your excellency, is to serve our glorious race and to serve as the milking-cows who provide us with a constant supply of the bioplasmic fluids which we crave. So indeed you might say that it is in reality a symbiotic relationship, with the hu-mans serving as the "hosts". However, we can not allow the masses of hu-man cattle to leave this planet, otherwise the great plan of our lord and god Lucifer -- to conquer the cosmic realms which Adonai unjustly claims for himself -- might be put in jeopardy. Only those who are truly loyal to Lucifer can be trusted to possess the interplanetary and interstellar technology, as you well know most illustrious one. And even through we have offered technology to the leaders of the military-industrial-banking elite of Germany and America [Terra or Solar-3] in exchange for "access" to various levels of their society, this technology was either obsolete to us or it was assured that the hu-man recipients were first under our psycho-emotional control, having received the psionic implants within the nerve centers of the brain linking them into the nexus. The nexus [which some hu-mans humorously refer to as the "hive"] will be strengthened all the more once we have fully infiltrated the Ashtar/Astarte psionic information matrix and have forever rooted out the last vestiges of individual thought and expression. In that the "Federation" places so much dependence on that particular cosmonet, as the hu-mans do on their so-called internet, the Ashtar collective shall be the common ground that we shall use to destroy and conquer our enemies within the Federation, and ultimately shatter their futile blockade of Solar-3 and its system. This manner of assimilation through interventionist-collectivism, as you well know your excellency, has been our policy for ages. It has also been our policy that unless alien collaborators have been fully assimilated and genetically integrated, that once their minds have been "bled" or "drained" of any useful data, they have been eliminated once their usefulness has been served, or in some cases their soul-energy fields have been removed [into electro-magnetic containers and then sold on the metaversal galactic markets as "energy food"], and replaced by one of our 5th dimensional counterparts who have proven to be very useful to our 5th column agendas... although some of the earlier "shifters" were rather indiscriminate in their activities, giving rise to the ancient "vampire" legends among the hu-mans. In these times however the shifters are far more discrete in their methods of obtaining human bio-plasma in order to keep their host bodies from decomposing prematurely. One of the most successful being the subterranean "farms" where hu-man children, being strong in life-essence and free of chemical contaminants, are bred for servitude and sustenance. As you know, your highness, there is still the disturbing fact that some of the hu-mans have in times past slipped through our claws and have acquired hyperspace travel technologies and had established bases on Luna and Mars. History will tell you of the glorious battles that have raged over and within Terra, Luna, and Mars before the hu-mans managed to escape from the system all-together, mainly to Orion and Lyra. We responded by establishing our own imperial forces in Draconis and Bootes, and then in Orion once the hu-man parasites were for the most part eradicated there, save for the Nephel-Anakim who still maintain a considerable hold on the Betelgeusian system. This left Lyra as our main target, and our vengeance was swift and decisive once the great purge was ordered. In that mighty battle, our glorious forces succeeded in wiping out most of the hu-mans in the Lyran Alliance, save for a few resistors in Vega. Many however escaped the purge, and spread like a virus throughout the galaxy, in spite of the fact that we hunted down and eliminated a great number of them. For instance the Zenatae Andromedans, the Tau Cetians, Procyons, and even the female dominant Capellans who have betrayed our own species and had taken sides with the so called "non interventionists". Our former lack of commitment in hunting down, eliminating and enslaving the entire herd of the hu-man scourge shall haunt us and be a lesson and motivation for our species for ages to come. However, with the blessing of our lord Lucifer, we shall prevail in the end against Adonai and all who serve him. Because of our past lack of discipline, our hold upon Terra must be strengthened, until our forces -- amassed within the Sol-ar system, fortified beneath the crust of Solar-3, and within the localized alternate reality singularities that we have generated within the grid matrix of Solar-3 with the assistance of our human puppets within the Montauk network -- finally have the hu-mans surrounded on all sides. The time is soon at hand when we shall bring about the complete collapse of their society and initiate the implementation of total electromagnetic control of all hu-man cattle on Solar-3, and in turn all remaining hu-man rebels throughout the Multiverse. Terra, unlike many worlds, holds a convergence of many of the ancient and powerful meta-genetic characteristics, being essentially the galactic root from which the hu-man scourge sprang. However our continued interference in the hu-mans genetic lines has allowed us to keep them for the most part in a state of docile passiveness, as we continue to rightfully take the strongest genetic attributes of their race and integrate them into our own glorious biogenetically engineered warrior lines. And if factions do arise in rage, resulting from an overcrowded corral, we shall simply influence the global merchants who have sold-out their own kind for personal gain, and command them to use their economic pull to turn these warring factions against each other, being extremely careful to conceal ourselves, the ultimate "chess players", from the rest of the blind pawns while they continue on the path of mutual annihilation. Thanks to the gullibility of the military-industrial element of the surface, we now have the means to "bleed" the outer world of its resources, and our hu-man servants have bled these cattle even more to help expand our underground empire, having constructed for us even more sub-networks with the hopes that they will be allowed inside and given refuge by us, once the chaos and carnage begins. It amazes me just how easily these greedy little worms will sell out their own kind and then trust US to follow through on our so-called "promises". No harm done though, for these hu-man imbeciles provide us with a steady supply of "hosts" for our 5th dimensional allies to incarnate, and a steady supply of hu-man "soul patterns" to provide us with ectoplasmic sustenance. Since technology on Terra has reached a critical mass and poses a threat to our galactic empire, a project of massive depopulation through our fifth column agents in the Terran United Nations Organization and other eco-political global agencies -- who are expert in divide-and-conquer tactics -- shall work to raise up the United States as the greatest threat to the "socialized" world. Our agents in the economic infrastructure have succeeded in polarizing the United States into the two fasocialist extremes of left and right, unknowing in their ignorant blindness that both wings are controlled by the same "dragon-lord", whose purpose is to breath "fire" upon the planet and to flap its left and right "wings" in order to "fan the flames" that would destroy the old eco-political boundaries that were established by Adonai, and thus offer us easier global control. Since all hu-man conflicts have an economic "fuse", we have made it our priority, your highness, to infiltrate and control the most powerful economic institutions of Solar-3. Eco-political collectivism in any form is our desire, as it makes the hu-mans dependent, destroys self-responsibility, and makes them all the more easily conquered, controlled and manipulated towards our greater cause -- a planet and galaxy and metaverse where all hu-man cattle are finally contained in a perpetually controlled society of servitude, in which the "livestock" will be tamed completely, tagged, and made to serve and to feed our superior race. We must therefore seek to destroy eco-political boundaries and hu-man self responsibility at every possible opportunity. The left-right capitalist/communist machievellian polarities of a Russian-Chinese-Arab alliance vs. the U.S.-Canadian-European factions, and even more localized "civil" conflicts within each of these, will decrease the rebellious surface population dramatically. Once the major forces deplete each other and the ectoplasmic manna released from the untold numbers of dying hu-man cattle is "harvested" and stored up for our final battle with Adonai, we will continue to divide-and-conquer and debilitate the smaller localized factions until they are too weak to resist assimilation... and the only faction that shall be allowed to maintain its size and organization will be that which is directly under our electromagnetic control via psionic implantation and programming. We shall also appear in the skies as "saviors" to "rescue" millions of hu-man cattle from the so-called earth-changes created by our electromagnetic weapons, and from the war and disease and chaos and famine also, but of course these "rescued" hu-man cattle will be redirected to those areas of our empire which most need to be "sustained", and little will they suspect their ultimate fate. Many who do not fall for this guise will be brought to the point where they shall sell their very soul-matrixes to us for their daily bread. An economic cattle/slave society based on an illusion of freedom has it's limitations. In the future all hu-man livestock must be "marked" and tagged with sub-epidermal chip implants, which will be integrated with a time-released virus to maintain the level of population on the planet that we so desire. Every action and in fact every thought shall be monitored, using our mainframe subspace microwave transceivers which are capable of tapping the encephalographic and emotional signals directly from the nerve centers of the brain, linking and assimilating those minds into the central nexus, which will instantly through algorithmic programs interpret and translate the neural-emotional energy signal-patterns and feedback the conditioned assimilative responses that have been programmed into the mainframes -- which are carefully guarded under miles of earth and rock. This is the glorious plan and destiny which our lord and god Lucifer has bestowed upon us, your excellency. The blessing of our lord Lucifer be upon you and our efforts, for his greater glory and for the glory of our expanding multi-dimensional empire. The universe shall be ours!!! [END TRANSMISSION]
The following is a method used to consciously induce an out-of-body experience (OBE), short of actually having to fall asleep.
Robert Monroe’s Method
In his book, Journeys out of the Body, Robert Monroe describes a complicated-sounding technique for inducing OBEs. In part, it is similar to other imagination methods, but it starts with induction of the “vibrational state”. Many spontaneous OBEs start with a feeling of shaking or vibrating, and Monroe deliberately induces this state first. He suggests you do the following. First lie down in a darkened room in any comfortable position, but with your head pointing to magnetic north. Loosen clothing and remove any jewelry or metal objects, but be sure to stay warm. Ensure that you will not be disturbed and are not under any limitation of time. Begin by relaxing and then repeat to yourself five times, “I will consciously perceive and remember all that I encounter during this relaxation procedure. I will recall in detail when I am completely awake only those matters which will be beneficial to my physical and mental being.” Then begin breathing through your half-open mouth.
The next step involves entering the state bordering sleep (the hypnagogic state). Monroe does not recommend any particular method of achieving this state. One method you might try is to hold your forearm up, while keeping your upper arm on the bed, or ground. As you start to fall asleep, your arm will fall, and you will awaken again. With practice you can learn to control the hypnagogic state without using your arm. Another method is to concentrate on an object. When other images start to enter your thoughts, you have entered the hypnagogic state. Passively watch these images. This will also help you maintain this state of near-sleep. Monroe calls this Condition A.
After first achieving this state, Monroe recommends to deepen it. Begin to clear your mind and observe your field of vision through your closed eyes. Do nothing more for a while. Simply look through your closed eyelids at the blackness in front of you. After a while, you may notice light patterns. These are simply neural discharges and they have no specific effect. Ignore them. When they cease, one has entered what Monroe calls Condition B. From here, one must enter an even deeper state of relaxation which Monroe calls Condition C — a state of such relaxation that you lose all awareness of the body and sensory stimulation. You are almost in a void in which your only source of stimulation will be your own thoughts. The ideal state for leaving your body is Condition D. This is Condition C when it is voluntarily induced from a rested and refreshed condition and is not the effect of normal fatigue. To achieve Condition D, Monroe suggests that you practice entering it in the morning or after a short nap. With eyes closed, look into the blackness at a spot about a foot from your forehead, concentrating your consciousness on that point. Move it gradually to three feet away, then six, and then turn it 90 degrees upward, reaching above your head. Monroe orders you to reach for the vibrations at that spot and then mentally pull them into your head. He explains how to recognize them when they occur. “It is as if a surging, hissing, rhythmically pulsating wave of fiery sparks comes roaring into your head. From there it seems to sweep throughout your body, making it rigid and immobile.” This method is easier than it sounds.
Once you have achieved the vibrational state, you have to learn to control it, to smooth out the vibrations by “pulsing” them. At this point, Monroe warns it is impossible to turn back. He suggests reaching out an arm to grasp some object which you know is out of normal reach. Feel the object and then let your hand pass through it, before bringing it back, stopping the vibrations and checking the details and location of the object. This exercise will prepare you for full separation.
To leave the body, Monroe advocates the “lift-out” method. To employ this method, think of getting lighter and of how nice it would be to float upwards. An alternative is the “rotation” technique in which you turn over in bed, twisting first the top of the body, head and shoulders until you turn right over and float upwards. Later you can explore further. With sufficient practice Monroe claims that a wide variety of experiences are yours for the taking.
by Miles Pearce
In Ultimate Journey , Robert A. Monroe emphasizes two points that predicate his “Different Overview.” We are more than our physical bodies. There is continued existence after death. He goes on to say that our human life experiences serve a very important purpose, but the awareness/intelligence that is us was around long before, and will be around long after, our physical lives on this plane. Our current cultural-societal manifestation does not recognize the existence of anything outside of time and space. This limits most of us to a very small portion of what we may experience as conscious, intelligent beings. To move beyond the perceptual limits of contemporary mainstream society and formulate a solid Different Overview based on experience is the main goal that Monroe sets for the reader.
One important factor that Monroe discusses is the powerful effect our physical bodies have on us. We are limited by numerous addictions connected to our Earth Life System realities. More often than not, our “Animal Sub-Self” exercises a great deal of control over what we are able to accomplish. Our conscious mind may have lofty goals and high aspirations, but try as we may we are unable to maintain a commitment to them because we do not have the cooperation of our Animal Sub-Self. Monroe holds that the Animal Sub-Self is responsible for the filtration and dissolution of our mental brilliance (p. 72). He says that its signals taint almost every facet of human life. That idea is one that warrants further debate because there are those who say that the body is a pure vessel and that it is the frantic, uncultivated mind that distorts our intentions. Nevertheless it is extremely important to understand the whims of our biological nature and engage its cooperation. If we can do that, and thus allow ourselves access to nonphysical (M) Field energies, we enter into the realm of unlimited possibilities.
Equally important (and possibly more so) are the effects of our cultural programming. From the day we are born, we are constantly exposed to a version of reality shared by almost all members of our society. From the time we are in our mother’s womb, and throughout our physical and mental development, we are told, “This is how it is, this is how the world works . . .” Our society heavily discounts any reports of realities outside of time and space. Any experiences we have as a young child that are incompatible with the popular understanding of reality are strongly discounted and we are admonished not to reveal or repeat them.
There is certainly some variation in the collective interpretation of reality, but it is usually minor, especially with the advent of mass media and the extreme homogenization that has recently occurred in our society. The tendency of dominant religious and political institutions to severely punish those having a different overview hasn’t helped either. By the time we reach physical maturity, most of us have a pretty rigid mentality. It is a great challenge to objectively reevaluate our cultural conditioning and thinking patterns.
According to Monroe’s discoveries, our life experience on Earth is immensely valuable no matter what we do, but by exploring the realities outside of time-space, we may discover who and what we really are and maximize our life experience. The first step in this process is to develop a different overview that will allow for such explorations. At first it may be necessary to believe the descriptions of Monroe and other explorers until it is possible to turn Beliefs into personal Knowns.
After establishing his Different Overview and doing some exploration of other energy systems, Monroe came to an impasse. He did not know what he was supposed to be doing. He felt that somehow he had taken a wrong turn or missed an important element. A new direction materialized: “The prime need was to know myself without equivocation. The more I came to know myself the more I would know what I am in nonphysical expression, and the closer I would come to the reason for the path I seemed to be taking” (p. 141).
Upon coming to this conclusion Monroe spent a year delving into the makeup of his I-There (beyond physical existence). He discovered a number of “layers” that played a part in defining his I-There. The memory layer is a complete record of one’s entire life. It is constantly being updated by continuous signals from the physical body. Near the memory layer he found a fear layer and an emotional layer. Apparently the I-There creates an efficient system for dealing with and categorizing these issues. Monroe concludes that we all have our own active I-There, which is constantly looking after us, and that we all have the potential to replicate his experience for ourselves.
Other important factors are:
1. understanding (M) Field energies and becoming proficient with them;
2. being aware of influences (both positive and negative) and learning to pick up only what is useful;
3. releasing limiting belief systems.
The work of Robert Monroe and The Monroe Institute provides exciting opportunities for expanding human potential. The guided techniques and Hemi-Sync technology are an easy way for people to access energies that were previously available only to those with a lot of self-discipline and determination.
A Buddhist monk once told a Monroe Institute facilitator, “It has taken me twenty years to learn what you teach here in a week.”
Miles Pearce received the 1996 Monroe Institute Scholarship, a four-year scholarship awarded each year to a qualifying Nelson County senior. He is currently a student at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and is considering majoring in anthropology. However, he is open to suggestions from people who are very happy with their chosen vocations. Miles attended the Gateway Voyage in August.
It’s a device that would be more at home on the set of a Star Wars movie than the streets of Britain.
But an iPhone application has been developed that can read minds.
The XWave allows users to control on-screen objects with their minds as well as train their brains to control attention spans and relaxation levels.
The device – that could confuse Luke Skywalker himself – is the latest in the field of emerging mind-controlled games and devices and works via a headset strapped around the user’s forehead, plugging into the iPhone jack.
A state-of-the-art sensor within the device can then read the user’s brainwaves through the skull, converting them into digital signals before displaying them in various colours on the iPhone screen.
And as the mind focuses on a particular task the graphics change, indicating the user’s level of concentration or relaxation.
The high-tech sensor was developed by innovations giant PLX Devices using technology that has for years been used by doctors to treat epilepsy and seizures in patients.
State of the art: A sensor within the device can then read the user’s brainwaves through the skull, converting them into digital signals before displaying them in various colours on the iPhone screen
But PLX Devices founder and CEO Paul Lowchareonkul said it was a matter of time before such contraptions entered the mainstream.
He said: ‘The human brain is the most powerful, complex thing in the universe, and for the first time, we’re able to harness its amazing power and connect it to everyday technology.
‘With the development of 3rd party apps, the potential for innovation is limitless.’
Brain-training exercises include levitating an on-screen ball for a certain amount of time or changing a colour by relaxing the brain in a bid to maximise the brain’s attention span.
by Richard Alan Miller, c1975,1992.
From the time of Dionysius to the time of Plato, the cultures of the Mediterranean consented to the doctrine that claimed the existence of an order of ultimate reality which lies beyond apparent reality. This “paranormal” reality was accessible to the consciousness only when the “normal” routines of mental data processing were dislocated. It was Plato’s pupil Aristotle who changed his teacher’s game, separating physics from metaphysics. The philosophical temper of our present civilization, being scientifically and technically oriented, is basically Aristotelian.
No such rational figure as Aristotle arose in the Orient to a position of equal eminence. Because of this and other reasons, Indian anatomists and zoologists, who where no doubt just as curious as the Greeks about the origins of life, and as skilled in dissection, did not feel compelled to set their disciplines up in opposition to metaphysics. Physical and metaphysical philosophy remained joined like Siamese twins. As a result, the discipline which became medicine in the West evolved into a system known as Kundalini Yoga in the Hindu culture.
In Western terms, Kundalini Yoga can be best understood as a biological statement contained within the language of the poetic metaphor. The system makes the attempt of joining the seeming disparate entities of body and mind. It is a very complicated doctrine; in oversimplified terms, the system encourages the practitioner to progress through the control of a number of stages, called Chakras or mind-body coordination. A sixth, associated with clairvoyance and telepathy, is called the Ajna.
The physiological site of this sixth Chakra, the Ajna, is located in the center of the forehead. It is symbolized by an eye – the so-called third eye, the inner eye, or the eye of the mind. When this eye is opened, a new and completely different dimension of reality is revealed to the practitioner of yoga. Western scholars when they first encountered this literature, took the third eye to be an appropriately poetic metaphor and nothing else.
It was not until the middle of the nineteenth century, as the subcontinent of Australia and its surrounding territory came to be explored, that a flurry of interest centered upon a lizard native to the area, the tuatara (Sphenodon punctatum). This animal possessed, in addition to two perfectly ordinary eyes located on either side of its head, a third eye buried in the skull which was revealed through an aperture in the bone, covered by a transparent membrane, and surrounded by a rosette of scales. It was unmistakably a third eye but upon dissection it proved to be non-functional.
Though this eye still possessed the structure of a lens and a retina, these were found to be no longer in good working order: also lacking were the appropriate neural connections to the brain. The presence of this eye in the tuatara still posses a puzzle to present-day evolutionists, for almost all vertebrates possess a homologous structure in the center of their skull. It is present in many fish, all reptiles, birds, and mammals (including man). This structure is known in literature today as the pineal gland.
The gland is shaped like a tine pine cone situated deep in the middle of the brain between the two hemispheres. Studies then began to determine whether this organ was a true functioning gland or merely a vestigial sight organ, a relic from our reptilian past. In 1959 Dr. Aaron Lerner and his associates at Yale University found that meletonin (1), a hormone manufactured by the pineal gland, was created through the action of certain enzymes on a precursor chemical which must pre-exist in the pineal in order for it to be transformed into melatonin. This precursor chemical turned out to be serotonin (2).
It was E.J. Gaddum, a professor of pharmacology at the University of Edinburgh, who was the first to note a connection between serotonin and mental states of being. In a paper published in 1953, he pointed out the fact that LSD-25 was a potent antagonist to serotonin. Serotonin is not an unusual chemical in nature; it is found in many places – some of them odd, like the salivary glands of octopuses, others ordinary; it abounds in plants such as bananas, figs, and plums. What then is its function in the human brain?
The task of exploring the role played by melatonin, and its precursor serotonin, was undertaken by a biochemist, Julius Axelrod. He found that melatonin suppressed physiological sexuality in mammals. If test animals were stimulated to manufacture excessive amounts of melatonin, their gonads and ovaries tended to become reduced in size, to shrink, to atrophy. The estrous or fertility cycle in females could likewise be altered experimentally by doses of melatonin.
Now two most curious functions had been attributed to the pineal gland, the third eye of the mind:
(1) It has now been established that this organ produced a chemical which had, indirectly at least, been associated with psychedelic states, and
(2) It also produced a chemical which suppressed functional sexuality.
The literature of religious mysticism in all ages and all societies has viewed the mystical passion of ecstasy as being somehow antagonistic to, or in competition with, carnal passion.
Axelrod and his co-workers also discovered another incredible fact: the pineal gland produces its chemical according to a regular oscillating beat, the basis of this beat being the so-called circadian rhythm. They found that the pineal responded somehow to light conditions, that by altering light conditions they could extend, contract, or even stabilize the chemical production rhythms of the pineal.
The fact that the pineal responds to light, even if this response is indirect via the central nervous system, has some fascinating and far-reaching conceptual applications. There are many behavioral changes which overtake animals as the seasons change, and which can be produced out of season in the laboratory by simulating the appropriate span of artificial daylight. Do such seasonal changes in mood and behavior persist in humans?
The great religious holy days of all faiths tend to cluster around the times of the solstices and equinoxes. Is it possible that the human pineal gland responds to these alterations in length of daylight? Changing the balance of neurohumors in the brain may perhaps effect a greater incidence of psychedelic states in certain susceptible individuals just at these crucial times. This possibility provides an entirely new potential dimension to our secular understanding of the religious experience.
The pineal gland has thus been referred to as a kind of biological clock, one which acts as a kind of coupling system; perhaps maintaining phase relations within a multi-oscillator system; a phase coordinator for multiple bio-rhythms. The pineal is a “cosmic eye;” it is aware of celestial rhythm. It “tunes” our biochemistry to those subtle rhythms not observed by the normal eye, like seasonal and lunar changes rather than daily ones. Serotonin can be seen as the “intensity knob” of the brain. As the level of serotonin increases, so does the level of activation of the cortex.
Strong suspicion has fallen now on serotonin as being one of the principle agents of the psychedelic experience. Studies now reveal that LSD-25 strikes like a chemical guerrilla, entering into receptor granules in the brain cells swiftly, and then leaving after a very short time, perhaps ten to twenty minutes (in animals). When the bulk of LSD-25 has left the receptor granules, it is replaced by what seems to be excessive, or super-normal amounts of serotonin. The LSD-25 creates what is called a “bouncing effect,” like a spring pushed too tight. When the LSD-25 leaves the system, the serotonin springs back and overcompensates.
For most of us, most of the time, our world is a Darwinian environment. We must manipulate ourselves within it, or attempt to manipulate it in order to survive. These survival needs tend to color our appreciation of this world, and we are continually making judgments about it. Some of these judgments are based on prior personal experience, others are provide by the culture. This “recognition system” is one of the elements disrupted by the psychedelic state.
The principle question concerning psychedelic states remains: How much disruption can the system tolerate? The problem of how to maintain a certain madness while at the same time functioning at peak efficiency has now captured the attention of many psychiatrists. There seems to be a point at which Edgar Allen Poe’s “creative madness” becomes degenerative, impeding function rather than stimulating it.
In light of this analysis, a shaman can be seen to be uncoupling his internal bio-sensor from the universal inputs. He gets “drift” where he is rushed toward new signal-to-noise ratios. The particular rituals are set up to disconnect the shaman from his social and cosmic environment. This is done through the ritual use of hallucinogens; they de-synchronize his internal rhythms. This de-synchronization produces more noise in his awareness. It also expands that awareness. The rituals are so designed as to contain elements which focus or tune that “noise” and direct the expanded awareness.
Man is unique by virtue of being possessed by intuitions concerning the scope of the mysterious universe he inhabits. He has devised for himself all manner of instruments to prove the nature of this universe. The beginnings of scientific understanding of shamanistic ritual and the function of the third eye provide man with powerful new techniques for exploration. This will allow him to penetrate the vast interior spaces where the history of millions of years of memories lies entangled among the roots of the primordial self.
(1) The chemical substance melanin is the pigment which darkens skin color. It is located in specialized cells scattered through the topmost layer of skin. Melatonin was found to be the substance responsible for causing the contraction of melanin-producing cells.
(2) Serotonin is of the same chemical series of indole alkaloids which include psychedelic drugs such as LSD-25, psilocybin, D.M.T. and bufotenine. The hormone serotonin is also known as 5-hydroxtryptamine.
06-01-92: This paper was originally written in 1975 for several scientific publications, and was reprinted IN THE CONTINUUM (Vol.II, No.3) in 1978. At that time, I made a very important discovery which was added to THE HOLISTIC QABALAH series. I thought to share that discovery at this time, to complete my thoughts on this subject:
In 1979 I was in a very serious accident, where I was crushed between a brick wall and an out-of-control automobile. My left knee was crushed, the parenteal nerve was severed at the knee. I was going to lose my leg! I postponed surgery, did some specific rituals with Kundalini and my “third eye,” and now have complete regeneration of nerve tissue – something now believed by mainstream medicine as physically impossible.
Here is how I did it:
There is a “chill” which runs up (Gopi Krishna) or down (Sri Aurobino) the spine at certain times of the week. You can, in some situations, actually induce this event. Sometimes, you can make our whole body shake. This is the physical aspect of Kundalini. On a physical plane, there are a series of small nerve fillia that stick out from the spine – almost like a “ladder.”
The “chill” is an EM-wave that is traveling up (or down) the spine, as each nerve fillia begins to oscillate. The most interesting fact about this is that the EM-field frequency in the visible light region! This is what most religions refer to as “The Light.” And what is at the very top end of this wave-train of light? The pineal gland!
Now, if you stimulate the pineal gland on a regular basis – let’s do it 3 times each day, what happens next is wonderful. The pineal gland is “light sensitive,” its primary function now understood to regulate the body for seasonal changes (health). This so stimulates the pineal gland that it sends out a signal down the neural cavity. The neural cavity, of course, connects the pineal gland at one end with the thalamus at the other….
What happens is that a resonant cavity oscillator is set up in the neural cavity, causing it to modify the gleal cell it normally manufactures. If there are enough trace minerals in your diet, this stimulated neural cavity will actually create true nerve cells, rather than those associated with sheath (gleal). If you take a trace mineral supplement and do this exercise, you can regenerate nerve tissue!
The actual process took some 5 months of daily meditation, as the actual consistency of nerve tissue is somewhat like that of Vitamin E – very viscous and slow to travel down my central nervous system to my knee. I no longer have nerve loss of any kind. This was documented by Clinic 7 (Pain Clinic) at the University of Washington in 1980. I now walk normally, although I still have some structural problems.
This is but one application of the principles outlined in this paper. Serotonin can also be considered a “Gate” for accessing other dimensions not accessible to “normal” consciousness.Update 07/o7/o3
Qi also known as prana, life energy. Ra material explains very well how this life energy flows through your body within the different energy centers or chakras. Most of the contemporary books about chakras find their origine in the Ra material. A must read.
In traditional Chinese culture, (qi) it is frequently translated as “energy flow,” and is often compared to Western notions of energeia or élan vital (vitalism) as well as the yogic notion of prana. The literal translation is “air,” “breath,” or “gas” (compare the original meaning of Latin spiritus “breathing”; or the Common Greek πνεῦμα, meaning “air,” “breath,” or “spirit”; and the Sanskrit term prana, “breath” ).
Not only human beings and animals were believed to have “qi”. Zhuang Zhou (also known as Zhuang Zi or Master Zhuang) indicated that wind is the “qi” of the earth. Moreover, cosmic Yin and Yang “are the greatest of ‘qi’.” He describes qi as “issuing forth” and creating profound effects.
Zhuang Zi gave us one of the most productive of insights into the nature of “qi”. He said “Human beings are born [because of] the accumulation of ‘qi’. When it accumulates there is life. When it dissipates there is death…. There is one ‘qi’ that connects and pervades everything in the world.”
Another passage traces life to intercourse between Heaven and Earth: “The highest Yin is the most restrained. The highest Yang is the most exuberant. The restrained comes forth from Heaven. The exuberant issues forth from Earth. The two intertwine and penetrate forming a harmony, and [as a result] things are born.”
Zhuang Zi was a contemporary of Mencius. Xun Zi followed them after some years. At 9:69/127, Xun Zi says: “Fire and water have qi but do not have life. Grasses and trees have life but do not have perceptivity. Fowl and beasts have perceptivity but do not have yi (sense of right and wrong, duty, justice). Men have qi, life, perceptivity, and yi.” This passage gives us some insight into his idea of “qi”. Chinese people at such an early time had no concept of radiant energy. But they were aware that one can be heated by a campfire even though the air between camper and fire is quite cold. Clearly, something is emitted by the fire and reaches the camper. They called it “qi”. At 18:62/122, he too uses “qi” to refer to the vital forces of the body that decline with advanced age.
