I am a psychology major, we are told not to believe in pseudoscience and whatnot. However, that doesn't stop me from being very interested in the subject. While I do remain skeptical about many things, I will still approach it with an open mind.

whoa, gotta stop ya there buddy, religion is a broad variety of different beliefs and most claim they are the ones who are right, that has nothing to do with believing in GOD or anything/one else. religion is mostly a control machine, an escape for some, sheeps clothing for others, sometimes a place to get in 'tune' with GOD and other, and the basis for the war machine.
He is under their thumb, a materialist, which is actually the most illogical opinion for a scientist to embrace, based on tons of data, and also quantum physics.

You're not talking about the Source of Consciousness, but instead something else, the Hijacked Matrix, which many know has happened.

Nikola Tesla was not materialist at all, he lived for his science and so did Einstein.
Tesla was one of the greatest minds the world has ever known, the things he discovered not even today the science understands, such as the "hutchinson effect", he would make incredibly creative and complicated plans in his mind and stack toughts, a capability only seen in movies, he never used a blueprint. He died alone, ill nourished and poor.
A bit different from the comfortable system-accomodating intellectual, who will think and say anything to keep his payroll healthy.
Calling Tesla materialist is an oxymoron.edit on 16-2-2012 by Marco0Aurelio because: (no reason given)

Research what materialism means - in the PHILOSOPHIC sense. Not as used in the popular usage.
Science focuses on energy, matter and processes. These are precisely the concern of every scientist. Can you find Wiki?

Yeah the now can potentially become hellish but my point is there are tools, you can beat the game, you (if you have radiant soul, which makes you a target) are strong, you have nothing to fear, you only need to come to terms with yourself, with your purpouse, your way, seek in and out for answers and tools and be present and conscious and strive for a directed balance (not an entropic kind of balance but a life focused negentropic one)

So what happens then?
Every aspect of our lives requires belief…
Beliefs are not something you choose, they are instilled through experience.
