"The illumination grew brighter and brighter, the roaring louder, I experienced a rocking sensation and then felt myself slipping out of my body, entirely enveloped in a halo of light...I felt the point of consciousness that was myself growing wider, surrounded by waves of light...
I was now all consciousness, without any outline, without any idea of a corporeal appendage, without any feeling or sensation coming from the senses, immersed in a sea of light simultaneously conscious and aware of every point, spread out, as it were, in all directions without any barrier or material obstruction...bathed in light and in a state of exaltation and happiness impossible to describe."
-Gopi Krishna (same link as above)
By his own account, Gopi Krishna's initial experience triggered a transformative process that lasted for twelve years. During this time, the sensations of light, splendor and joy alternated with – and were often completely overshadowed by – sensations of fire, unbearable heat and bleak depression.
Epigenetics is a tough one to correlate.
In light of what we are likely learning from modern developments in epigenetics, how do you all think that this might change, or amend, the definition of "Kundalini Casualty".
My question is this: In light of what we are likely learning from modern developments in epigenetics, how do you all think that this might change, or amend, the definition of "Kundalini Casualty".
We create words to label people, places, actions, thoughts, and more so we can express ourselves meaningfully to others. Do humans' shared cognitive abilities and dependence on languages naturally provide a universal means of organizing certain concepts? Or do environment and culture influence each language uniquely?

It's interesting, those who are fixated upon the notion of Universal consciousness within all living things to the extent that they deny individuation are channeling the Andromeda complex, a fatalistic dogma that can see nothing beyond and will eventually lead to a case of the light being on but nobody at home.
The beast that torments them during this entrapment, Cetus, represents organic life at the most fundamental level, to the extent were differentiation between the animal and vegetal has no relevance, it probably is the case that the sea serpent will begin to de-evolve the person at the most fundamental levels, transforming their minds into something resembling pea soup.
If Buddhist monks and New Age mystagogues were prettier and could manage a decent scream for help perhaps they'd be worth rescuing, but generally they're not.

Whether you see this as a relatively localized phenomena doesn't interest me, the fact remains you found yourself on the edge of a certain precipice unable to move beyond.
A basic issue with Buddhism and Hinduism is the early schism within the Pantheon were Hinduism became the preserve of Deva tradition and the Iranian concern with the Asura, an issue then because those higher spiritual qualities with regards to the management and administration of life are the concern of the Asura.
The schism never occurred in Mesopotamia, which is why when you'd gone as far as the tradition of Enki could take you, correspondent to Andromeda in terms of astral symbolism, at that point it would be time to say hello to Enlil's side of the family, shamanism was covered at a relatively low level by Assaluhi, a son of Enki.
It's not a case of wishing to correct , you reached the highest level of awareness with regards to what is symbolized by the Andromeda constellation but then realized that within the traditions you had studied there was no way forward, i merely explain why, i mean after all you're one up on the Atheists, they're only at the sea serpent level, appreciation of Biology and Evolution.
