Good lord, I want to live the rest of my days with you folks... it's weird to be alienated for half a century and then find a home on a subset of a website for paranoids... heh... anyway, ya'll rock quite hard.. .ALL.

Mass projection of affection to all. Just had to express...

You and I should write a book together. Or maybe not.. Bleh*

I knew about the stomach and heart "experimentally" and the stomach via science, but I'm floored with your heart/brain reference. I missed that one.

I'm too lazy to write a book on my own... and while I have a 160 IQ or whatever and a scientific background.. that's not my thing as much any more.

I'm turning off the lights to the 1.21 JIggawatt Delorian motor.. and want to go to a long rest..

Happiness?

You've never tried that one.

Happiness is a byproduct of my everyday life. I don't and I won't look for that, because it happens when I quietly sit with birds tshirping and the sun shining on my face.

No. But give me time, maybe tomorrow the question arrives. And I am sure you'll have another eye opener for me. Sorry, but you have too much experience with interesting things to say to let you go "unused"....

You could write a thread together...? I find working on collaborations here to be so much fun! All the intelligence, bonus of great humour...what's not to love?

Baddog...dude...YES!! *major group hug* (Why do you think I built a Shed here? Another awesome group of brilliant and funny people. I fall in love with a combination of smart/funny/weird, lol.)

Putting "General Weirdness" into the thread title helps! It's kinda hard to drift off topic. (Thanks to the serious writers here who are just stepping over the silliness...every word you write is being read.)

A deal is a deal, fair enough.

This happened maybe 8 years ago. It was in a house I never liked - nothing obvious, just one that didn't feel right.
I was in bed (hence naked) but not sleeping since I'd only got in a couple of minutes ago. I was thinking about something or other, but I was tired. I felt someone get on the end of the bed, slide under the covers and lie on top of me - he was heavy, sort of man-sized I suppose.


I froze since it came out of nowhere and in those split seconds I couldn't quite figure out what was going on. Before I could do, or think, or open my eyes I saw (in my mind's eye) his face zoom right up close to mine and he yelled loudly in my face. He had pure hate in his eyes.
I was so shocked, I opened my eyes to...nothing. No sounds, nothing. Just everything as it was 5 minutes ago. I looked at the clock, I think, thinking I must have been asleep but only 5 minutes or so had passed.

I have no idea what happened, but I never want it to happen again. I have no explanation for that, but jeezo, it was creepy.

Ach, you'll sleep when you're deid.

We need you here, knee deep in weirdness.

But yes, brain-heart fascinates me too and pretty much validates a lot of, as you say, ancient teaching.

That would freak me the "eff" right out as well.

Bad remnant of a sex offender type, is my guess.

Hey, KPB, do they feed off fear emotional energy? Why the scares from the a-holes (in your opinion)?

That's traumatic! I feel traumatized just reading it...omg!! I was waiting for "the punch line"...thought it would be funny.

I'm so sorry. No, nothing like that has ever happened to me. *knocks on wood* *but not 3 times*

Umm...very weird that you guys are talking about the heart-brain right now. Pretty freaky. I have notepad opened, and have been working away on a piece about 'how your heart forms before your brain as an infant' and have been messing with the theory that 'your brain is like a corrupt government' running the population (the rest of your body) when in fact it would be healthier to think more with your heart-brain.
I kid you not.

Sounds legit.

No, seriously, why not? I have no better answer.

eta - For a thread? Are you going to post a brainheart thread? That would be brilliant.

It's funny that I have a similar iq but my laziness makes it effectively halved... imagine what i could do if I gave a poop?

But, as far as "resting" the gigawatt sucking thing, I can say from experience that it ain't so bad... heh, rest that is.

Having the damnable thing simply ensured that I was nice and separate from mere mortals my whole life... and really, the only options given smarties are building better killing machines or driving the self crazy with infinitely recursive philosophies.

If only I'd been dumber... sigh.

I have an IQ to be proud of too, but I curse it!
I would much rather be blissfully ignorant of anything but my next new shiny purchase or my next duck-pout selfie (don't...just don't!)...

I try to convince myself that there is a reason for wanting to know everything, that maybe some of us are supposed to try and figure it out...but I know that I'm lying to myself. I do know that.

The upside is finding people like all of you here. That is literally the silver lining.
Not being able to talk about 'all the weirdness' would paralyze me.

Sorry I can't identify true critters so well..they avoid me like the plague. I'm a natural party crasher in a wide radius...

Take me to any kind of channeling, cult, new age sort of place and all the 'naughty critters run for the hill's.....so not an expert in this area.

hey, greetings from Europe, Slovenia!

I am interested in Kashmiri Shamanism. Can you please share a few of the best book titles about it? For now I only have one - Kashmir-Shaivism-The-Secret-Supreme. Did you read it and if so, do you recommend it?

well I feel I can say a few things about myself. I hope it will be amusing.

I don't question my sanity anymore. I have thrown it out of the window a few years ago.
So I don't worry about it, if experiance happens I just deal with it. It worked so far perfectly! : )

I am a home boy no formal training but self training. I just want to experiance the things which are described in many different religious or spiritual scriptures as the complete self realization. That is my desire for now and what keeps me awake many nights meditating.

Well I was known as a bit wired. Well not shy wired or problematic, but I always had a bit different thinking, I always relied on my intuition in words, speech and actions. So you know wired ... but in good way, mind you! : ) since childhood and it still sticks with me. Now I am 28. Until recent years I had a pretty normal life, with many friends, playing a lot of sports, drinking and partying and all normal stuff any young guy enjoys doing.

Than I started to meditate. Than it was silence. I think it was somewhere at this point were my sanity went bonkers well or after lsd or shrums trips combined with meditation in total darkness, fun times ... : ) But I don't advise doing that, only if you know how to let go of the mind completely!

Now I had a few years of meditation and self research this change came natural and not becouse of some crisis or something. This became my priority and goal in life. Of Course. No more parties. Sports were exchanged with walks and meditation in nature and I see friends occasionally. So let just say I am stable in my instability when it comes to mental, even if sometimes I say crazy wo wo things : ) well I think so and friends or any other people around me are happy way more times than not when I am around so that seems like a good sign at least, right? hah : ) Well I try to cultivate bodhicitta and live by certain principles so I am a generally a nice guy and easy to talk to and would not hurt a fly.

Oh for work I am a web developer and run my own business. If anyone wants a web store or page or almost anything web related I could be your guy you know...or not. I have a lot work to do any way for now and earn me some €€€, I sure need them for paying many bills. For some time I decided I would not pay company taxes for some reasons...let me tell you. Not a good idea : )

I learn what I like and drop the rest. Intuition is still guiding me. Fun is the indicator, even now, when I am doing a lot of meditations and contemplation, wired definition of fun right? well I enjoy being alone a lot for now and am living my dreams. Would not trade it with any other life I feel I am where I need to be. It is far from perfect, but I enjoy it very much.

well if you read all of that and you say you are familiar with psychology?
I always wanted to go to one just for the curiosity sake, any short thoughts?

geez, I hope I did not just step on the mine! : )

Also please tell me if you want how would you advise I do my meditations to experiance what you did? Or where can I get this information, that would work to : )

Here's some high strangeness for you.

My friends and I were hanging out in front of my one friend's house one day. This little Scotty dog came down the street right in front of the house. It was walking like a broken windup toy. It fell down and started twitching. Then got up and walked on a bit more before falling down and twitching again. My friends and I looked at the dog and at each other. It had some weird quality as if it didn't belong there. It had the weirdest white eyes, too. Anywho, we thought maybe it was rabid and followed at a safe distance to make sure no kids encountered it. It went into an alley; no place to hide there and nowhere to go, as all the yards were fenced off. The damn thing was gone! We looked everywhere. We never saw it again.

Thank you for suggesting this, KPB. I just spent a few minutes reading on it and it feels very appropriate for me right now. Gonna dive into it a bit deeper tonight as I need to exercise my lazy spiritual self. Quite exciting to receive input from you, one of my favorite posters here. How you manage to say so much with so few words is a fine art. I struggle sometimes to keep up but you've made some rusty gears in my head start to turn and for that, I thank you.

Well we can talk about feathered lizards, demons of the zodiac and void Lord's sometime....

But we seem to be in a pothole that keeps out most non-tulpa originating lifeforms.

I'm not A guru friend.

Now and then I run across someone I know that I should interact with.....and that's it.

I also don't personally work with people who trip on stuff....now I know that shamanism and 'herbs' go together like dogs and fleas.....but that's not my way.....

I would rather not share Kashmir shamanistic stuff with you...it's also corrupted in my opinion. You won't find what you are looking for in books....maybe 10% at most.

It's the self journey that makes a person into a deeper person....not some old books words..
(or old fools).

Thank you for sharing about your life.
