First of all some Articles by experts
Important neuroscience article:
Classic psychiatry categorizes people in limiting, linear ways, while the world is inherently wide-ranging. The article proposes instead, that each individual be assessed and understood „singularly“ from a psychiatric perspective, but according to a wide range of fluctuating behaviors and tendencies. This is a quantum approach to psychiatry, rather than the classic binary approach that offers only two options, ones and zeros. This means that any one behavior or condition may seem good or bad, appropriate or inappropriate, depending on the context.)
An alternative article about „schizophrenia“:
A “psycho” is someone who is experiencing a disconnection from everyday reality! „Psychosis“ could be more something like an enlightenment situation! You can learn very much from a person in a „psychotic“ state of mind!)
Terence Mckenna and 60’s counterculture view on „schizophrenia“:
A shaman is someone who swims in the same ocean as the „schizophrenic“ , but the shaman has thousands and thousands of years of sanctioned technique and tradition to draw upon. We have gone very, very sick. And the body politic, like any body, when it feels itself to be sick, it begins to produce antibodies, or strategies for overcoming the condition of dis-ease. And the 20th century is an enormous effort at self-healing. Phenomena as diverse as surrealism, body piercing, psychedelic drug use, sexual permissiveness, jazz, experimental dance, rave culture, tattooing, the list is endless. What do all these things have in common? They represent various styles of rejection of linear values. The society is trying to cure itself by an archaic revival, by a reversion to archaic values.)
How non-industrial cultures view „mental illness“:
Behaviors considered „mental illnesses“ by western psychology are seen differently — even positively — in so-called „primitive“ societies. Hearing voices and hallucinating, for example, can be the start of a spiritual awakening.)
An article about how shamans perceive „mental illness“:
In the shamanic view, „mental illness“ signals the „birth“ of a healer. Thus, „mental disorders“ are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being „born“.)

Symptoms as hearing voices or having hallucinations, which in western societies are considered mentall illnesses, are considered in tribal societies as signs of a gift from spirirt/god. The chosen person probably needs a mentor to be guided through the awakening process. Talks and a loving compassionate circle of supporting people can aid the chosen person in being „born“.)

Spiritual „Bipolar Disorder“ And Kundalini Experience
Shawns personal story of spiritual „Bipolar“ kundalini experience in a buddhist vipassana retreat, and other videos)
A Word to Phil Borges and his Shamans that told him there are some Mad People who cannot be healed or beeing a Shaman:
There’s something known as the Holy Madness as seen in the Bible of Mad Prophets and in the case of Sankt Antonius Fire when taken Ergot.
So what is “schizophrenia”?
Is it (hearing voices, having visions or other extraordinary perceptions and thought constructs), like my voices (ghosts/spirits/angels) told me, a gift from God (Tao), in order to mediate between the worlds?
Or is it, like, mostly atheistic, believing in the Mensch-Maschine-View, psychiatrists lately claim, a malfunction of the brain, when actually brain researchers found out, that while hallucinating, without the aid of „drugs“, the exact same brain regions as in normal perception are active, merely consider quantum entanglement of nerve quanta with energetic realities etc. , and thereby dismiss the concept of a feeling weak soul (psyche), deriving from a spiritual crisis?
So now, psychiatrists also claim, that the psychoactive compound THC of Cannabis induces a “psychotic” (sickness of the soul) state of consciousness, while Psychonauts on the other hand claim, that it induces a psychedelic (bringing forth the soul) state of mind!
Bringing forth the soul and experiencing/perceiving otherworldly stuff, can have two sides, like in ordinary Tao, positive and irie thoughts/experiences/perceptions/feelings, as well as negative ones, and are directly linked with the momentary state of the soul, positive soul, positive experiences or weak, negative soul, distorted and negative experiences, and are directly connected to outer occurrences/influences, sometimes even to ideas of others, books, movies, music, prose, fine arts or other media, regarding the interconnectedness of oneself to the universe and each other through thought forms (quantum entanglement of nerve quanta), gravitational waves, feelings/energy vibrations (electromagnetism/induction of nerve fibers), bioluminescence (light wave vibration quantum entanglement of cellquanta), air, water, and matter, supernatural, etc., and so influencing each other.
There’s also another compound of Cannabis, namely CBD, that completes the ordinary Tao cycle, when it calms anxiousness, relaxes and counteracts, (researchers found out that CBD can act as an antipsychedelic/(„antipsychotic“)), the effects of THC and its psychedelic/(”psychotic”) inductions, which lets one think/contemplate calmer.
Is “schizophrenia” therefore a feeling negative or weak soul brought forth, and experiences with it connected negative other-worlds and beings, and on the other hand, if your feeling sane, happy and strong soul experiences with it connected blissful other-worlds and beings, some kind of joyful spiritual enlightenment?
And is the sensitivity of „psychos“ a property, that allows them to sense the spirit world easier than normal people?
Is this a kind of an enlightenment situation, actually opening the third eye or ear, etc. or opening to the cosmic mind.
Is the conclusion, that everybody can connect to the spirit/tao/god-world, using Mary Jane or other psychoactive plants, cacti and mushrooms, and it was therefore criminalized by the “Satanists”, because they don’t want to have it “….like in heaven so may it be on earth…”?
The psychoactive active components actually resemble neurotransmitters, and so shouldn’t be regarded as inducing an unnatural state of consciousness, when some spiritual practitioners also can achieve such states through natural means.
Also the dopamine theory of schizophrenia is at least doubtable, because how should a possible overspill of only one neurotransmitter be responsible for such complex perceptions and states of consciousness and thought constructs, when actually whole brain areas and neurotransmitter coactions are responsible for perception, thinking and feeling, and dopamine overspills don’t happen seldom, just think of a very delicious meal you maybe had, dopamin is reward neurotransmitter that also works on memorys.
Even if brain scans or neurotransmitter imbalances would indicate extraordinary states of consciousness, it doesn’t say that this (neurotransmitter imbalances) might be the cause of these extraordinary states or are simply merely the outcome of such states and therefore no reason to pathologize such states.
So if the otherworldly stuff some are hallucinating is just made of some energy quanta, or maybe even some supernatural divine spirit, that through mind filter reduction, the special sensitivity of „psychos“, and quantum entanglement, or even supernatural perception (regard non reductionist science page), gets perceived, maybe we could transform the word hallucinating into clairperceivance.
Buddha would maybe say, go find your own answer!
Spirit, meditation and neurotransmitters
Are spiritual techniques like yoga, meditation and so forth capable of influencing the mind, spiking the spiritual neurotransmitter quanta so that a psychedelic spiritual state of consciousness is achieved?
According to some neuroscience experiments with buddhist monks it is! Is the outer spirit influencing the inner spirit or the mind regardless of other consciousness centers (chakras) in the body or the other way round?
Or on another note, who is influencing who, the spirit the mind or vice versa, or am I this or that or who is who?
Evolution versus Psychiatry
Does the nonexistance of a neurotransmitter overflow but at the same time the existance of altered brainscans in „psychos“ indicate a maybe higher level or evolutionised brain/consciousness, that maybe there’s some kind of quantumentanglement (via neurotransmitters) or supernatural infotransfer or processing in the brain active?
But some are afraid of evolution or simply don’t get it and therefore pathologizing it?
„Schizophrenia“ or Gift of God
I personally know shamans/healers/witches who see and hear otherworldly stuff like God/Angels/Spirits/etc. and with the help of it heal sick persons.
Also, my Angels/Spirits told me that having visions and hearing voices is a gift from God.
So how come in the western world such gifts were pathologized as sickness?
Was it because of the churches witchhunt in fear of black magic and the lack of better explanations of unexplainable catastrophes/accidents/sicknesses, though also prophets had the gift of seeing and hearing, and in the following the witches and the like started hiding and couldn’t inherit their wisdom openly, and fewer people could be recruited, and so such wisdom also got forgotten by the majority, and through a rigid church and their rigid interpretation of creed, and in the following age of science, through the loss of that witches wisdom and the lack of better explanations and scientists being disappointed of the then present spirituality represented by the church, and because of that, a loss of spirituality occurred, science started to pathologize such states as madness, especially since some of the fellas had some kind of psychological strain because of their sensitivity, and these fellas had not the wisdom of the witches how to handle such states of consciousness.
Now in the vicinity of a paradigm change, because of the findings of quantum physics and through reemerging spirituality, and reacknowledging millennia-old wisdom, this pathologizing could or better should come to an end.
Psychiatry, Occultism and Shamanism/Witchcraft and the example of „Schizophrenia“
I read somewhere that psychiatrists knowledge initially derived from occult sciences. This shows itself especially in the choosing of the word „schizophrenia“ for expanded states of consciousness, which means as far as I know „split of soul“, which in turn can be compared to the Peruvian shamanist view of a state of „lost little soul“, where the patients lost their „little soul“ because of accidents or other traumatic incidents. The psychiatrists in the former USSR called „schizophrenia“ also the shaman’s disease.
Are so-called „schizophrenics“ then shamans or witches, etc., who lost their „little soul“ and are going, due to their powers, into other realities and search for their „little soul“ and because of the combination of their „little soul“ being lost and going into other realities are becoming a little „disoriented“?
Did the psychiatrists know of such, because of their connection to occultism, and the occultists inheriting such wisdom from witches, because the witches had to hide from the church (occult meaning hidden), but it was forgotten or not conveyed how to repair such a situation.
Expanded Perception and Expanded Consciousness, Spiritual Crisis and so called „Schizophrenia“
If out of an expanded perception, like hearing voices, having visions, and other expanded perceptions, and so through instructions from the otherworld, and through the influence of the own spirit (higher self), and so through informations out of higher consciousness realities, and maybe other incarnations, or future visions, and maybe through the connection to and influence from the subconscious mind (lower self) and other parts of the self and the consciousness, and so through it intensifying the consciousness/mental/brain activity (which can also be achieved through other mind altering methods, like „drugs“ (also psychiatric), meditation or other practices, follows an expanded consciousness and maybe other spiritual conditions, like dissolving the ego or dissolving ego-boundaries and so relating everything to oneself, or maybe contemplating the meaning of life, and so follows a spiritual crisis if one is not prepared for such and can’t, because of the rationalized western mind, integrate it in ones world(view)/reality, and the person now wants to implement said perceptions and states of expanded consiousness into ones world(view)/reality with the help of available thoughtconstructs out of books (also fiction and spiritual) , (contemporary) music (lyrics), movies, other media and other information sources, and now mixes ones own altered state of consciousness and infos with the western worldview and said information sources, there might sure come a total spiritual trip, which psychiatrists call „schizophrenia“, but the least of the so called „patients“ have real pressure of suffering on the first trip, which only comes later through exhaustion through the trip and the following repetativ mindsupressing sickness talk of psychiatrists and bad neurotoxic psychotropic psychiatric drugs.
Possible help on integrating the other world in to ones reality may come through classifying expanded perception and its infos, states of expanded consciousness and its infos, and other information sources (media etc.) into cathegories by thinking about/analyzing/differentiating and with the help of meditation and other selfcontrol techniques calming/grounding oneself, and other methods (see Spiritualized Divine Healing page) and so integrating it into ones own reality.
Biological Medicinal Psychiatric Worldview versus Spiritual Reality
From a medicinal biological psychiatric perspective, love, hate, sadness or any other intense feeling, perception or thought (but especially expanded consiousness‘) is too much or not enough of any hormones or neurotransmitters, especially eleveted states of consciousness and feeling, thus an imbalance and thus a „psychosis“! Because you can suffer from all the above mentioned somehow!
But if you look at it from a spiritual reality point of view, they are just human experiences of altered states of consciousness and feeling, that a lot of people already went through and are realized somehow, and that need to be explored, analyzed and compared to already known and explored altered states of consciousness and feeling, such as shamans, witches, healers, yogis, sadhus, gurus, sacred scriptures viewpoints etc. altered states of consciousness and feeling, and then implemented in a wholesome positive way into your reality.
Little excursus in psychiatry versus wholesomeness
Perhaps a millennia-old tradition of witches, shamans, healers, sadhus, gurus, mystics, wise men, enlightened ones, etc., understands exceptional states of consciousness/perception/feeling/being better than a mere more or less 150-year-old tradition of psychiatry?
Every feeling comes with a variation in neurotransmitters and hormones, and psyche docs also say that every human has a different nature of feelings/so neurotransmitter-households etc.!
Where does one see an illness then (or better which laughingstock wants to set a limit to the allowed neurotransmitter outflow, to indicate healthiness?)?
Extraordinary otherworld-perceptions and thoughts and feelings can also be induced through „drugs“ and other means, like meditation etc…., so what does that to the natural/normal state of consciousness mean?
What is wrong? What is right? What is disease and what not?
According to new studies (s.a.), everything should be viewed in a context that adds to the help or hinderance view of a state of being in a special context.
E.g. a mentally disabled person that showed a depressed person that there’s still something worth living for, is that sick or healing?
Yeah, the antipsychiatry movement is trying to help but on a different level than the established western biological medicinal psychiatry, as in we don’t see our condition as a sickness but as a state of being that can be integrated in a wholesome and healthy way in our reality/everyday life.
It depends from where you look at it if you look from a saddhus/shamans/etc perspective then you have altered states of consciousness when you look from psychiatrists view, you have a sickness, but who says that some possible biological markers are either the source or maybe are the outcome of such states?
AND who determines the power of interpretation of such?
The anthropocentric reductionist view of atheistic science, who gave such power to themselves, or the wholesome view of devine naturalistic spiritual view of masters, which got such power from the Most High (refer to spiritualized science page)?
Can brainalterations in developing teenagers induced through the early use of Cannabis and its influence in the endocanabinoidsystem of the brain also be seen in a positive way, when there’s more brainactivity through THC than in adults that don’t use Cannabis, and through a not complete myelisation of nerve fibers they are more sensitive to outer (electromeagnetic induction – feelings vibrations) influences?
Can this be seen as a sensitization (of body/soul (nerves)) and an actvation of the emotional mind/entering an emotional (trance) state?
And through THC a not so well developed Hippocampus the shortterm memory becomes weak and therefor you live more in the moment?
This seen from a Baba’s/Guru’s/Spiritualist way of thinking is a desirable development becoming more open to emotions, activating your brain and living in the moment, but from an industrialized societies point of view it is a hinderance in the struggle for more performance.
So in a spiritual way Cannabis can be seen as more of a help (evolution through more active brain/entering an emotional (trance) state, living in the moment ) but in a modern industrialized and performance orientated sense as more of a brainimpairment (sensitization, deep real thinking and shortterm memory impairement).
(It’s Shiva’s plant isn’t it?)
What does that say about tobacco use in teenagers or alcohol use or other entheogens which alkaloids also resemble neurotransmitters when they also sensitize (regard also the use of entheogens in youth initiation rituals in some tribal indigenous cultures, by opening up to spiritual realities)?
But the alleged amplification of „schizophrenia“ in the population possibility is neglectable since there’s a medical consensus that one must be predespositioned to „schizophrenia“ to be induced through THC and that applies merely to 1% of the worlds population, and the paradigm of the existance of the illness „schizophrenia“ is also doubtable!
No fear (paranoia) is without reason! Everything has a source in the multidimensional reality of the all-and-all;
actio = reactio!
Maybe it is just an unempathical desription of someone’s reality that the other is not possible to understand?
Since the introduction of shock-pictures on tobacco products should mostly have had a dissuasive influnece on people to not use tobacco, but mostly had not, because the benefits of tobacco use outweigh the possibility of sickness, and as we know through autogenous training and other psychological/spiritual techniques of selfinfluencing (e.g. meditation on health), repetative, subconscious influences can have an influence on the mind and so on the soul so also on the body („mind over matter“).
So when you often see shock images of sick people, doesn’t that implicate that after some time of influence on your subconsciousness you somehow are more prone to such sicknesses, but it is also shown in studies that tobacco has a positive influence on „schizophrenics“ and the soul?
What does that say about a psychiatrist repetative storytelling of altered states of consciousness as being a sickness and „hallucinations“ as not part of reality (but as proposed in other posts and pages being part of some kind of reality) ?
What does that say about the repetative storytelling of psychiatrist that neuroleptics help against „symptoms“ through building up over the course of some weeks a level of the agent and after some weeks stopping the „psychosis“, though it is known that the „dopaminblockers“ immediatly enter the neuronal gaps and block the transmittors, and that is said that it saved so much lifes, though we also know that it killed and (spiritually, physically and pschologically) destroyed people, and me also at my first longer encounter with the otherworld i could also without the help of neuroleptics could return to everyday reality after some weeks of alternative help?
Wouldn’t you internalize the role of a sick person and therefor feel so, but as i mostly learned to know so called „schizos“ being positive about their initial/first experiences only becoming later negative (because of the psychiatrists storytelling and psychotropic drugs)?
What does that say about the repetitions in the media about dangers from this and that and that a capitalist democratic fascistoid system is indespensable and without it, we would lose our wealth and security, and that it brought so much advance, but we forget how much destruction and also (psychological and physical) suffering it brought, especially when most of the people relax in front of the tv or other media after a hard days work and so the higher parts of consciousness are closed down and the subconscious mind is open to suggestions?
Methinks it creates a lot of (subconscious) fear and supporting of the (secure(?)) system, though we know better!
Even If (But it isn’T)
Even if schizophrenia or other types of psychosis should be an illness (at least the supposed sickness is not independent of the outerworld, see interconnectedness), couldn’t it be not seen as a possiblity for symbiosis with the supposed „illness“ as it is seen in mitochondria who were once bacteria and made a symbiosis with other cells, maybe in the first place they were seen as intruders or evil, but according to the dao <-> yin <-> yan principle can also be seen as good for something and serve a purpose. Maybe also look at the fantasy movie „Phenomenon“ with John Travolta, were a braintumor gave the main character super intelligent mind powers, or especially for greater organisms like states or even bigger world organisms, where „Aliens“/Foreigners/Immigrants can enrichen the culture/society/intelligence of people!
A critique on psychiatry and the special case of neuroleptics aka „antipsychotics“
Psychiatry either doesn’t want to learn from evident or proven facts, or the professors won’t give proper information to the students, or if they do all the psychiatrists seem to ignore them.
One may ask like also Robert Whittaker surmised a psychiatrist guild interest behind it, is there a maybe darker agenda behind it?
Like the system upholding their status quo by drugging and even killing their „crazy“ („enlightened“) prophets, healers, seers, and what do I know.
- There were tests/studies on regular „normal“ people taking Haldol in the ’80s, and them reporting having the feeling of their souls being dissolved by the drug (the psychiatrists ignore that). Now considering my own experiences with other neuroleptics, and the theory of feelings and perceptions, even if not confirmed by reductionist science, being possibly as of another reality, supported by quantum physics, even as a supposed „psycho“, I had experienced being lead to death and my soul dissolving by the drugs. This experiences and other experiences of almost a total annihilation caused by the drugs (and other black/necromancing magic gimps of psychiatry and related issues) was accompanied by an overwhelming and horrifying feeling and knowing of maybe never existing again or that the angels would have to work really hard to restore my soul. One may ask, since i also had the impression that some or maybe all psychiatrists, have some kind of sixth sense or maybe somehow trained expanded perceptions, that they are either evil people that arbitrary „play“ with their patients and test the drugs, or test God to see his power and entice him to show itself and maybe even try to destroy dear god or aspects of it, because they can’t handle such aspects or are afraid of them or follow some fascist agenda of the „DIN-Norm“ (robot/master race) human. I also saw this kind of behavior lately on social media emerging, and call such people „hunters“.
- The neuroleptics can also have the adverse effect of enforcing alternate states of consciousness, as I experienced my first conscious time-travel on Haldol and the info about such „side effects“ found in the leaflet containing information for the user which accompanies the medicinal product (the psychiatrists ignore that).
- The neuroleptics not only blocking also sometimes multiple receptors in all body nerves but even blocking the mitochondria (receptors) (the motors/power plant) of all body cells and with this effects blocking a natural working, living and joyful life (the psychiatrists ignore that). I experienced that also at the beginning of my „psycho career“, not being able to walk long distances, and „knew“ it was from the „meds“ but psychiatrists lead me to mistrust myself and believing their distorted and twisted worldview, that that was a problem of a supposed sickness called „schizophrenia“. Even the psychiatrist can’t say that they are blind and not see our struggling with the meds but sending us to „industrial work therapy“ and hard physical and mental work though we are totally blocked. One of my fellow patients asked once commonly „Do they want to burn us?“ And after all my experiences and the knowledge of (most of) the psychiatrists having expanded perception, and them being arbitrary hunters and knowing of one psychiatry professor being a Free(!)mason, I can wholeheartedly say, yes.
- The psychiatrists and staff torturing us and with it trying to „teach“ us lessons/punishing us in conforming to their (fascist and trending) ideal of the „DIN-Norm“ (robot/master race) human, by restraining beds/jackets/“medication“ and isolation rooms, reported by a lot of fellow sufferers and experienced also by me.
- Experimenting with their drugs and their ideal of the „DIN-Norm“ (robot/master race) human until they find the „right“ drugs and their (fascist and trending) ideal of the „DIN-Norm“ (robot/master race) human, like i experienced the docs supporting and rewarding especially compliant patients and punishing noncompliant patients, especially if they see patients fleeing the wards (them having an intuition/foreseeing of the horror of the psychiatry system) and hunting them down with fantasized risk of harm to themselves or others and then coercing them by court order or psychological pressure to take the psychiatrist poison. If they knew what drugs would do or which one works they would know which one to prescribe, or better not prescribe at all, and not experimenting, like maybe physicians prescribing an antibiotic for bacterial infections.
- Neuroleptics shortening the average lifespan by about 25 years and causing brain-shrinkage/damage and changing in brain chemistry, that may lead to unexpected or violent behavior (the psychiatrists ignore that) in patients and the „doctors“ interpreting that as „symptoms“ and force-feeding more psychopharmaka.
- The psychiatrist staff (especially nurses) giving a fuck about the patients and mostly sitting in their „bunker“ and chit chatting and drinking coffee and writing down „strange“ behaviour of the patients, if they notice it, and so, and especially with their forceful support, also in restraining and punishing patients also with other methods (e.g. downers („benzo meds“)), partaking in the fascistoid psychiatrist system!
- Lately also drugging children, which have no known psychological strains, but maybe having human experiences, or like shamans say, being chosen to have extraordinary experiences.
- Excusing their disease paradigm and their evil pill and torture psychiatry with the pressure of suffering of some of the patients and thus forcing it an all patients willing or not, though alternative worldviews of such conditions and alternative handling of such expanded states of consciousness existed since long times (see e.g. shamanic etc. systems).
A case against Neuroleptics
The psych doctors tell you that the active agent in neuroleptics need to build up a level over a few weeks, to suppress the symptoms though it is known that they enter the neuronal gap immediately shortly after the intake , and on my first „trip“ i came down without the help of neuroleptics but through talks with my friends and then girlfriend and with sex, hash and beer.
And now i surmise that the most help in („mental“) wards is through other patients (supporting social contact overthe course of a few weeks), as i heard often and experienced also myself, and also my psych doc told me that the main function of nl’s is a dampening and numbing one and not an „antipsychotic“ one (tranquilizer that suppoerts the positive social contact in wards)! The alleged „antipsychotic“ effect of neuroleptics is also very doubtable, because, as on my personal experience, since I was a long time on regular neuroleptic depot injections, the gift of hearing voices and having visions reemerged in my soul.
Here a few studies on the longterm outcomes with and without neuroleptics and the braindamage and life expectancy shortage it does:

A video on psychiatric drugs
„Schizophrenics“ in the United States currently fare worse than „patients“ in the world’s poorest countries. Medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely „mentally ill“ are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920s and 1930s gave way in the 1950s to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Whitaker’s most damning revelation, he examines how drug companies in the 1980s and 1990s skewed their studies to prove that new antipsychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous „side effects“.
Robert Whitaker raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of “insanity,” and what we value most about the human mind.)

Brain Scans of altered minds
There seem to be similarities in brainscans of „schizophrenics“, and people having sex, and actors acting „schizophrenic“ person’s and meditating people, and people on the mindaltering drug LSD! (see picture)
So if there as a similar, visible made, outside indicator, is there also an inherent internal (psyche) similarity?
Can the example of actors acting „schizophrenic“ people and them showing similar brainscans indicate that it all initiates from a higher/spirit place (something has an influence on your mind/brain), and that such an altered brain (scan) shows just the outcome of such an (spiritual) influence?
„Psychosis“: Bending Reality to See Around the Corners
„Psychosis“ is a highly misunderstood condition. In this talk, Paul illustrates the condition’s complexity, taking apart how our brains perceive reality by reinventing „illusions“ around us. If perception is just a form of controlled „hallucination, what does that make „hallucinations“? )
Your brain „hallucinates“ your conscious reality
Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience — and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it.
How does this happen?
According to neuroscientist Anil Seth, we’re all „hallucinating“ all the time; when we agree about our „hallucinations“, we call it „reality.“ Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.)

LSD Brain Scan Reveals Stunning Info
LSD has been found to connect regions of the brain that were previously segregated to one another according to a new brain scan study. Test subjects were injected with LSD which unleashed a wave of changes altering activity and connectivity across the brain. At the same time regions of the brain that usually form a network became separated creating “ego dissolution”, a loss of personal identity. Using three different brain imaging techniques, named arterial spin labelling, resting state MRI and magnetoencephalography, the scientists measured blood flow, functional connections within and between brain networks, and brain waves in the volunteers on and off the drug. They concluded that LSD created a far more unified brain which strengthened connections between vision, attention, movement and hearing. Watch as Jo Ankier and Margaret J. Howell examine the brain scans and LSD study on the Lip News.)
Consciousness and psychedelics
Philosopher of mind Peter Sjöstedt-H discusses the hidden impact psychedelics have had on philosophy and asks if such extreme, altered modes of mind could help give us answers to some of the big questions facing the philosophers and scientists of today. Peter is an Anglo-Scandinavian philosopher of mind and author. He lives in West Cornwall and is engaged in his PhD with the University of Exeter, where he also teaches philosophy modules and writing skills. Peter is the inspiration behind the inhuman philosopher Marvel Superhero, Karnak.)
The shortest path sometimes is not the best path
„The western mind and society is a house of cards and the people that built that system know that and that we (the „psychos“, shamans, saddhus, etc.) could, with our gifts, bring that house of cards down!“ (Robi)
We could call ourselves psychic (ordinary psychics [new agers or whatever] have an arrogant stance towards us „psychos“ and think we must get „healed“, that’s why we don’t identify with them/that), but with calling us „psychos“ coming from psychosis, we also embrace the struggle and torture of psychiatry, being a part of our lives!
And we are proud of that and that we survived it (Mad Pride)!
