It has long been thought that God, if he exists, cannot be detected or measured through the tools of science, but now scientists have been utilising new technologies to find evidence of a spiritual world by peering deep inside the human mind.

"For much of the 20th century, mainstream science shied away from studying spirituality."

At first I find your topic very interesting, so thanks for bring it here. I red the article, and it takes me back to my investigations. Just as it is the case with nicotine or insulin, similar to that happens to serotonins endorphins and others, The brains needs, among other things, amino acids to be transformed into those products. When the brains are used on a propel way, and a normal life occurs, the brains can handle it, but if the balance is disturbed, than damage or degeneration will occur, opposite to that, and now I come to the kern of the subject. human brains can also go the other wa...

It seams that a superior being can be reached on a regular base, only when human (brain) has develop its complete regeneration level. As it is the actual case that, do to an progressive degeneration process, no natural results can be preformed, others than by additional stimulants, which will finally worsen the brains stadium.

One can become spiritual in other ways as well. It certainly doesn't have to take a drug in order to do that. And I don't think it has to take a drug in order to contact the spiritual world ethier. somebody who is more spiritually advanced then others. Might have had a rough start in life and that's what makes them spiritual. Or because of somebody doing something amazing and spirits listening to the person. That's another way one can become spiritual. Or because of one being different having differences that make their life harder then others. Such as a disability. That's another way one can ... [More]

So you're saying that with controlled responsible use psychedelics are capable of putting us in touch with something that exists on a higher level of spiritual reality? I definitely believe that. People can laugh it off all they want, but I can almost guarantee that the ones laughing are the ones that have never tried to experience it. Well. First , I need to say that I have never encountered a debate function before. Very cool. But, as this is my first post, I will decline that. Godsnmbr1's post however made me want to sign up just to post. I am 46 yrs old. I have tried a lot of drugs. Many t... [More]
