    V. The Neurosomatic System When this fifth “body-brain” is activated, flat Euclidean figure-ground configurations explode multi-dimensionally. Gestalts shift, in McLuhan’s terms, from linear visual space to all-encompassing sensory space. A hedonic turn-on occurs, a rapturous amusement, a detachment from the previously compulsive mechanism of the first four circuits. I turned this circuit on with pot and Tantra. This fifth brain began to appear about 4,000 years ago in the first leisure-class civilizations and has been increasing statistically in recent centuries (even before the Drug Revolution), a fact demonstrated by the hedonic art of India, China, Rome and other affluent societies. More recently, Ornstein and his school have demonstrated with electroencephalograms that this circuit represents the first jump from the linear left lobe of the brain to the analogical right lobe. The opening and imprinting of this circuit has been the preoccupation of “technicians of the occult”–Tantric shamans and hatha yogis. While the fifth tunnel-reality can be achieved by sensory deprivation, social isolation, physiological stress or severe shock (ceremonial terror tactics, as practiced by such rascal-gurus as Don Juan Matus or Aleister Crowley), it has traditionally been reserved to the educated aristocracy of leisure societies who have solved the four terrestrial survival problems. About 20,000 years ago, the specific fifth brain neurotransmitter was discovered by shamans in the Caspian Sea area of Asia and quickly spread to other wizards throughout Eurasia and Africa. It is, of course, cannabis. Weed. Mother Mary Jane. It is no accident that the pot-head generally refers to his neural state as “high” or “spaced-out.” The transcendence of gravitational, digital, linear, either-or, Aristotelian, Newtonian, Euclidean, planetary orientations (circuits I-IV) is, in evolutionary perspective, part of our neurological preparation for the inevitable migration off our home planet, now beginning. This is why so many pot-heads are Star Trek freaks and science fiction adepts. The extraterrestrial meaning of being “high” is confirmed by astronauts themselves; 85% of those who have entered the free-fall zero gravity describe “mystic experiences” or rapture states typical of the neurosomatic circuit. “No photo can show how beautiful Earth looked,” raves Captain Ed Mitchell, describing his Illumination in free-fall. He sounds like any successful yogi or pot-head. No camera can show this experience because it is inside the nervous system. Free-fall, at the proper evolutionary time, triggers the neurosomatic mutation, Leary believes. Previously this mutation has been achieved “artificially” by yogic or shamanic training or by the fifth circuit stimulant, cannabis. Surfing, skiing, skin-diving and the new sexual culture (sensuous massage, vibrators, imported Tantric arts, etc.) have evolved at the same time as part of the hedonic conquest of gravity. The Turn-On state is always described as “floating,” or, in the Zen metaphor, “one foot above the ground.”
  2. What made YOU laugh today/tonight ?

    Me at training today This young woman turns up , watches a bit and asks us what we are doing .

    That gave me a flashback to the news story I saw last week; a reporter interviewing an American woman ; " "Yes we all should wear a mask, but we will not be at the Trump rally , becasue ..... its the Trump rally and you know what, that is one of the great things about this country and why its great to be an American ! " Even the American reporter was left standing there with
  4. Martial Arts demonstrations gone wrong

    I remember 2 sword demos gone wrong . Stupid karate people that thought they could use a sword ; first was with a cheap 'wall sword' . The guy goes to cut something , flings the sword up first and the blade fliers off the handle, over his head and lands somewhere back in the audience . The second was some guys in my Sikiran club ( what makes them think they could use a katana ? ) . One says he can cut a watermelon on his brothers stomach and stop in time so he doesnt cut him . (yeah , you can guess ..... ) The cut didnt go through the last bit of skin and the melon was hanging there , it would look better if both halves fell off either side of the guy lying down, so he gave it a little slice at the end . The other thought the same thing and flexed his stomach up thinking that would cause the last remaining bit to separate ... at the same time . = about 20 stitches across his stomach , fortunately just through the skin . I remember going to do an aikido demo once , when we got there it was a gravel car park and someone forgot to bring the mats . The demo didnt actually go wrong .... the wrong part was afterwards .
  5. Martial Arts demonstrations gone wrong

    I remember that sickening sound coming from the back of class . Teacher (cups his hand to ear ) " Aha! The sound of Japanese wood on Aussie bone ! " That reminds me ; I once defeated teacher unarmed against him with nuncuks , fortunately these where the plastic ones . After class he advanced on me twirling them ; "Lets see how you go against this ! " Me; " No ... get away! " <backs off , flings an arm out in a stupid defensive motion > but somehow, fluke ! My hand hit the end of the stick he was holding, stopping its movement and causing the other stick to whip around and the end caught him under the jaw . " Him < astonished > " How did you do that! " Me < bluffing > ; " Secret move ! And let that be lesson to ya ! "

  9. How do you make decisions the spiritual way?

    I used to be (many many years ago) the chairperson of a 'Baha'i Spiritual Assembly' - an elected council of 9 that helps run the affairs of a community , they replace the function of 'clergy' in other religions . Since they have to sometimes decide on affairs that effect peoples lives, it is very important to make a 'spiritual decision' and not a selfish one . very basically it works like this ; First you have to get in 'spiritual mode' - there is no point coming into it from some charged emotive state , so one must have the ability to leave that behind . They used the method of prayer for that , the meetings started with prayer or philosophical readings . The key thing is to release your attachments to any opinion offered , put it 'in the pot on the table ' (there isnt one, thats a metaphor ), then release it as your own idea / contribution, examine it as you do the other contributions, by keeping in mind the best solution to the problem . Easy to say that, some are able to this and others cant really, they mask it but underneath they are pushing for their own ideas. I suppose it takes 'spiritual people ' to make 'spiritual decisions ' ... remedy ? Get 'spiritual' . The test is - its fairly easy for the 'advanced' to decide on an issue that might effect others , but one may also have to decide on an issue that effects YOU as well , thats the real test of any spiritual decision making for community ! Get more 'spiritual' ( become selfless, develop understanding, cultivate wisdom and balance mercy and severity , but do not fear to act ) . The idea is (in Bahai ), if you stick together, even a wrong decision will become apparent and you can fine tune it or drop and change it later , the community learns together in experience . becoming attached to all different opinions and solutions, causes division, which is hard to resolve and the community may not learn adapt and evolve . Otherwise there are people undermining decisions that go against their personal wants . If the council/ors cant get it together or keep making unpopular decisions then the community is able to vote different members in . .

    ... oops .... I was expressing pissoffedness about material things in a thread about expressing gratitude for them
  11. Expressing gratitude for material things

    Ooooo ! Goddamn modern 'designs' , the last two tea pots I got , the tea comes out from around the lid as well as the spout ! Its a design - component relationship people ! If the end of the spout height and distance from the pot and the top of the pot is wrong it will not work as the tea will find its way out through the lowest point - EEEEIDJUTS! next one, I demand a water pouring test before purchase . and while I am it ... my chiropractor has waiting chairs that have the 2 back cross pieces , not flat but inserted on edge, like shelves so the edges sticks into your spine . I've talked to her about it but she ' Oh ! ? No one else has mentioned that . " and also " they used to be my chairs at home but I got some new ones and decided to put these here . " I'm not sure which way to take that It is my firm religious conviction that somewhere in hell is a designer section where bad designers are forced to use the products they designed .

  14. Expressing gratitude for material things

    I am grateful for everything . Right down to the basics of simply being alive / existing . I agree that thus is healthy psychology , even more so when one gives appreciation and thanks and offerings of appreciation and thanks . I am strongly Lunar and Cancerian so a large amount of my thanks goes towards the great home environment I have - the actual house and surrounds , the nature climate and animals , etc . Regarding your last sentence .... and .... 'she who shall not be named ' .

    ... but they are still trying to force having real people there ! " ...the NRL has set an ambitious target date of 1 July to welcome back at least a limited number. That idea has been met with some resistance, with state governments saying it is too soon to consider and the Australian Medical Association branding it “absurd and dangerous”.
