I tried to keep it as readable and tolerable as possible in terms of length..and believe me, there is plenty I left out for the sake of keeping it a one-sitting read.
It would have been a few more full posts if I had even bothered to get into my sleep paralysis/ astral projection and meditation experiences..as well as my lifelong synchronicities with 11:11 and 4:44 and other events.
I know it sounds a little too good to be true that I epitomize so many ATS topics..after all, that's what brought me here.
This is one case where truth is FAR, FAR stranger than fiction could ever hope to be, but I'm not going to write a biographical tall-tale..this stuff is only for the people of ATS.
I understand it gets tiring to read very long threads like this. A little feedback is all I ask. I'm not in it for the stars and flags...but for the wealth and wisdom of your responses!
Thanks again for any meaningful posts.edit on 13-7-2012 by NarcolepticBuddha because: (no reason given)

Hey, thanks for interjecting
I actually agree with much of what you've written there and I think it's interesting that you make a distinction between religion and spirituality.
I think perhaps I was being unfair and a over-generalising. You might be right, perhaps science and spirituality (in thē sense you described it) are essentially looking for the same thing but in different ways. I'm afraid that I often get stuck on the 'spirit' part of spirituality that implies there is a 'soul' and ghosts and a god and an afterlife and whatnot... That doesn't sit well with me at all.... The idea of a universal interrelation between all things however is perfectly sound science, the 'holy grail' of science (if you can stomach such a concept ;o) is a unified theory of everything.... A theory that incorporates all things and explains the nature of all things... Whether you chose to define that as a spiritual connection or not is up to the individual I guess...
What I meant about science seeking to disprove itself is true though. Yes, they accept certain things as a given (or they'd have nothing to work on/from) but the objective is to poke holes in the theory in order to develop a more comprehensive and watertight explanation.... Another FANTASTIC book that explains the development of modern science, from it's early days all the way to recent times is 'You are here: a portable history of the universe'
This contains a great explanation and insight into how science works to disprove itself and develop its theories (that's another one to pick up from the library )
Hmm. The straightened spinal column seems to entice sleep paralysis to happen..Sounds like a yoga/ meditation posture to me. Hmm, very interesting indeed. Maybe, just maybe this sleep paralysis is something other than a "dream glitch".
