Projection / Re: What Astral Projection mp3's works for you?
« on: December 18, 2011, 07:04:58 PM »
I used to listen to "Shadows in Silence" by Enigma, and "Rememberence" back when I could project a lot.  It was not the music itself, but the state of mind you could achieve, but sometimes the sound can have useful subliminal effects.
When you can meditate and actually hear only one sound (for me, it was the strings or cymbols), then you are in the right mental state.  It usually happens after I do that many times, and then when I stopped trying to hard.

YOU were supposed to get ahold of me, and totally ignored me in the chartrooms.  No, I did not forget, thanks.

I'm going to skeptical about a self-published book, and the paranoid in me wonders if he took any material from me lol.
Already, not liking the language he uses.  This is one of those subjects where you have to be anal about what you are saying, or else a lot of people will misunderstand.  In the first paragraphs, he bounces loosely from terms like "sense" and "consciusness" while trying to explain something else.  If the premise is "leaving" the thing that actually does the sensing, then one does not have a "sensory experience" at all.
I'm on page 30, and so far, seems like a load of failure.  He now's trying to use math to justify what he is saying, and just like he he was talking about no scientific evidence that entering a "phase" is harmful, it's like he is talking to himself instead of explaining.  Supposing he did have some lab, I dont see any citations to go and check what he did for myself.  I feel like he is not offering anything new.

At some point, at which none of you remember because you're new, I was saying that a nightmare or something shocking like one is a good tool for controlling your conscious states.  Usually, this results in a lucid dream, because that's the point at which our rational mind realizes that something seems to scary to be real.

Main Hall / Re: Top 10 Greatest Hoaxes in Science
« on: June 29, 2010, 07:33:22 AM »
I'm assuming you posted this because it's supposed to be funny, but given your past history, I wonder if you actually believe that scientists are this dumb.

A palaeontologist at the British Museum assembled the bones and believed that they represented the “missing link” between humans and apes. 40 years later scientists proved that the Piltdown man was a deliberate attempt at paleontological fraud.
In 1999 National Geographic described this creature as the “missing link” between dinosaurs and birds.Yeah, not so much.Turns out this “fossil” found in China was actually a forgery constructed from rearranged pieces of real fossils from different species.

National Geographic is not a scientific magazine, and it is not a science journal.  They, like Time Magazine, have no voice in the scientific community.  The prank with the bones was dismissed very quickly by the scientific community, and the only reason why anyone thinks anyone was fooled, is because cretards keep repeating it over and over.
In fact, the only times I know that "science" was fooled, is when other scientists do stupid shit to try and fool others.
For example, one guy stole some fossils to be carbon dated, and had no idea how the process works, so he ended up carbon dating the shallac on the bones which gave a false reading.  He then proceeded to tell everyone carbon dating does not work.  Naturally, any time something like this makes it into a peer-reviewed journal (which is what counts by the way), the community debunks it.
Another time, some asshole published a paper saying there was a connection between vaccinations and autism.  Come to find out, none of his findings had any basis in reality; and even though his paper was easily debunked, LOTS of people jumped to conclusions about vaccines.  Needless to say, this asshole is no longer a doctor, and his paper was retracted.

In 1995, British fake news show Brass Eye conducted an “investigative report” on a street drug they invented called “cake,” claiming it affected an area of the brain called “Shatner’s Bassoon.”
Members of the media lashed out against cake, and the British government even took the matter to Parliament. Whoops!
So, this is not even science-related, but some idiots jumping to more conclusions.  Seeing a trend already.

The most hoax happened in 2002 when news organizations from the BBC to CNN quoted what they believed to be a World Health Organization report that blonds would disappear within 200 years, because blondness was caused by a recessive gene that was dying out. Turns out the WHO had never done such a study.
All of these things so far were believed because of the media, and mostly the ones believing it were remarkably not anything to do with the scientific community.

The Nacirema were supposedly a tribe of people living in North America, as described by Horace Miner in his anthropological paper, published in 1956. The tribe Miner described had many odd rituals including “scraping and lacerating the surface of the face with a sharp instrument” and another ritual that “consists of inserting a small bundle of hog hairs into the mouth, along with certain magical powders, and then moving the bundle in a highly formalized series of gestures.” It was actually a satire of everyday American life. “Nacirema” is “American” spelled backward.
I never heard of this one, so I had to search for it.  At first, I thought "this one actually did make it to a science journal, and was obviously debunked later, which is how the system works."
Wikipedia seems to summarize the actual intent of this paper, which was intended to be commentary on American life in the 1950s

aside from barely being intellectually on par with children, what other qualifications do they have?
Obviously, you missed the point.  He SOUNDS like he writes childrens' songs, how's that.

Dude!  I have ALWAYS thought he should do children's songs!  Him, and Tori Amos would both be really good at writing for children.
