  1. It's healthy to be disillusioned with the spiritual community. Everywhere as far as the eye can see is BS. To weed out the BS, ask for evidence. You need scientists and doctors in a controlled environment to document these abilities, and record their findings on video. If the teachers aren't willing to provide that then most likely it's a hoax.
  2. Getting Weird.

    This was in the 90s
  3. the chain of command for Nell today is: Joe Biden Lloyd Austin Christine Wormuth James Rainey Karl Nell
  4. There is no what if, they do go beyond human comprehension. . For me personally I understand the limits of evidence, gathering a team of scientists and professionals to observe under controlled conditions, and recording it on camera is the gold standard. That's as good as we can possibly do in terms of evidence. The problem is that skeptics will always find excuses about how the professionals were in on the hoax or missed something, etc. The only thing better than such evidence would be an in person demonstration.
  5. I think really videos will only do so much. You need in person, one on one demonstrations under controlled conditions.
  6. I want to become powerful

    I think you make a valid point, and I think most of the time this is indeed the case. However not everyone who purchases a gun does so with the intention of harming someone else. There are valid reasons to need such power, that do not include dominating other people, or trying to take over the world. To achieve those ends, power is required. For some seeking power to achieve those end goals is just a means to an end, and not the end itself. If I want to grow all my own food there are several prerequisites to being able to do that. I would need to own a few acres of property located in the correct climate. I would need a water source, and fertilizer. I would need seeds. I would need lots of time. I would need the health and energy to garden, or the money to hire someone to do it for me. Needing time, money, energy, health etc, all of those things are requirements to make my end goal happen. Working towards those things as a means to an end doesn't make me a megalomaniac bent on world domination.
  7. Intra ocular pressure

    Cut out coffee and caffeine. Coffee even decaf raises IOP, so does anything with caffeine in it.
