However, there appear to be ways people are able to achieve results with various methods. Proceed with caution shouldn't even need to be said. Whether its tinkering with Tesla Coils ala Hutchison, or using a brainwave generator.
which includes the keen eye of people like John Alexander etc.
A voice. Everybody knows this who has to do with this stuff. Gordon Wasson, Richard Schultes, Albert Hoffmann - the giants know that this stuff is animate. This is not a drug. It's something that is disguising itself as a drug in order not to spread alarm. There is a voice which speaks to you in the language of your homeland - whether that be Mazatecan or English - and the voice surprises you. In other words, you cannot anticipate it.
He became a popular personality in the psychedelic rave/dance scene of the early 1990s, with frequent spoken word performances at raves and contributions to psychedelic and goa trance albums by The Shamen, Spacetime Continuum, Alien Project, Capsula, Entheogenic, Zuvuya, Shpongle, and Shakti Twins…
…In addition to psychedelic drugs, McKenna spoke on the subjects of virtual reality, which he saw as a way to artistically communicate the experience of psychedelics; techno-paganism; artificial intelligence; evolution; extraterrestrials; and aesthetic theory, specifically about art/visual experience as information representing the significance of hallucinatory visions experienced under the influence of psychedelics.
Between 1988 and 1989, Terence had an experience with psilocybin which left him unwilling to take the drug again. According to Dennis Mckenna, he "never again took mushrooms and he took other psychedelics such as '___' and Ayahuasca only on rare occasions, and with great reluctance" after the trip revealed to Terence "an abyss of utter existential despair." However, Terence continued to advocate psilocybin use until his death.

Yes, I totally agree with the shortcomings of Budden and I also find Jung to be--while certainly important--quite contrary on his own viewpoints. His "scholarly" work often differed--or failed to elaborate--on his more personal beliefs and tendencies:
The Occult World of CG Jung
I offer Budden for a few different reasons, and certainly differ with him on his final conclusions, but I do highly recommend his books. One reason I bring him up is for objectivity.
Another is that I learned a lot about EM from his books and he offers some of the most interesting case histories I've ever read. And, I must admit, he mostly argues his own points quite well.
But he eventually, imo, runs into problems and I find that aspect fascinating as well. Overall, for me, Budden describes some of the 'mechanics' of close encounters, but I find many of the case histories to be more indicative of actual contact with non-human intelligence. Budden himself almost seems to suggest it at times.
That Norwood Searchlight Incident is great, btw. Very interesting pics and analysis, too!! A must watch for those interested in the EM angle. Thanks.

Recently, Terence McKenna's brother, Dennis, has gone on the record to state that the experiences had under the influence of certain substances, particularly mushrooms, cannot always be trusted. Dennis is the more scientific and rational of the two. He does believe that some information can be received non-locally, but a mish-mash of the individual's own memories and thoughts can occur and present itself in such an alien and profound way as to seem like an absolute reality. When the reality could very well be that you are ripped out of your mind on a drug. But that last argument is used too often, and it dismisses some more genuine insights. It is important not to have "black and white thinking errors" - or throwing the proverbial baby out with the bathwater.
I think it is safe to say that one needs to exercise extreme caution and rational apprehension in regards to "tripping" - and it is not always reliable or credible. It is however, great food for thought. Terence was basically a "funny idea" generator. And like science-fiction, funny ideas about reality can lead to artistic and technological breakthroughs in the real, physical world.
One question could be is it more interesting to go after the meat and potatoes of the esoteric and shamanic realities, as is being discussed here, or is it more interesting to study the covert goings-on of the various spooks themselves?
For example, you have spent a lot of personal time tracking the work of John Alexander, and I have spent some time tracking the types of things that Alexander looks into, and you seem to suggest that it is not worthwhile, and that obsessing about the negative and occult aspects is somehow more worthwhile. I find that interesting.
There's an old joke in the esoteric community that runs...
Q: How many Enochians does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Only one however only after they who change the bulb have spent 20 years understanding the true meaning of a light bulb and having spent several months scarifying their essence in the desert to prove they are worthy of fitting a light giving appliance.
Then again, there's another that runs
Q: How many kitchen witches does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Why, it's already sorted my dear.
My personal Aquino thread was based on Alexander's UFO book which said that there are no covert anti-gravity programs, and the contradiction that Aquino said in his review that there were and are. That was the entire premise of the OP, and it was to that that Alexander said I was wrong about. That I was wrong to suggest that "they" were working on antigravity at Skinwalker Ranch.
But it doesn't seem to happen to vehicles with a diesel motor. ... cuz the ignition coil isn't as high voltage.
Magnetic induced or ionized air are the two best things I could find as a possible cause.
ETA: if it is due to ionized air, and your engine dies, but the ignition is still in the on position, I then wonder if one the air returns to normal if the spark would just click back on as if nothing happened??edit on 27-10-2013 by JayinAR because: (no reason given)
