After searching the web it appears it is not as strange or uncommon as one might think. I really feel this thread might be on to something and it seems there are no scientific data whatsoever???
I found a lot of common grounds about the dissociative state of the human mind and it is somehow related to reptiles. Be it due to (self) medication or a real psychosis people all over the world experience similar 'feelings' of being some kind of a reptile. Snakes, lizards, crocodiles (sometimes other animals like elephants and hawks even aliens) but never lower life forms like trees and flowers.
That may seem normal, but the fact was that I had a reptilian brain. My whole way of thinking and perceiving had changed. I had full control over my motor functions, but I felt ungainly. I was detached from my body........
Now, twenty-four hours later, I'm beginning to get my neocortex back (I think). Soon, I hope to be human again.
This person also talks about a similar autism 'feeling'
Reading a very in depth description of what this dissociation felt like, something occurred to me. It is the same feeling that can occur with autism. Detached somewhat from your body, among other things. I know this because I have the high functioning form of autism. I guess I just found it amusing to see a normal person getting so freaked out about soemthing I experience quite often.
Actually the part of "feeling like a reptile" is something very familiar to me as well, although i just assumed it was part of the dissociation. is it something different?
Crazy ways our minds work? i find this very interesting indeed.

Why do people refer back to David Icke like he is someone that you should reference for credible information? He claimed to be the "son of God" back in the day. Seen here: www.youtube.com...
Most people who claim to be the "son of God" publicly, on TV, would be laughed into obscurity. Just think what you would think if you heard a man walking down the street saying that.

How can someone have human thought without a neo cortex?
If we were suddenly left with our basic reptilian brains then surely we'd have no idea?
Like the thread states, the reptilian brain controls the very basic survival instincts.
So surely human consciousness cannot function if only the reptilian part is active.
So now that we know about the reptilian part of our brains, and what exactly it does, makes the reptilian "story" a bit different. We are all in fact reptilian, except that we are never really taught this. We have managed in what may seem like forever due to our brains evolving, never lost our most primal nature.
The reptilian complex, also known as the R-complex or "reptilian brain" was the name MacLean gave to the basal ganglia, structures derived from the floor of the forebrain during development. The term derives from the fact that comparative neuroanatomists once believed that the forebrains of reptiles and birds were dominated by these structures. MacLean proposed that the reptilian complex was responsible for species typical instinctual behaviors involved in aggression, dominance, territoriality, and ritual displays.

Sorry for the double post, but I just went ahead and read the rest anyways.
Now I must say that I agree with most of what you said. I have read much on the reptilian part of our brain myself.
My main question is:
Why did you not say this right off the bat?: "I am NOT saying that reptilain shapeshifters are REAL!! I am saying that this is a distraction from that it really means, If you see what the reptilian part of our brains actually does (as shown above), and how it is being controlled (as shown below) if we showed reptilian figures as the pictures above, and just left out the photoshop, and the word "shapeshifters" this would make much more sense."
Also, can some people have a stronger/weaker reptilian aspect to our brain? Or is it all about control of it? I almost feel that the reptilian aspect of my brain is weaker/less pronounced. I have noticed that I display the emotion/thoughts that are associated with the mammalian and human parts more than others I personally know. That and I just feel generally, more "warm blooded".
