Quote from: Casparov on May 06, 2014, 05:11:26 AMThrow out the word "chopra" maybe even say the word "woo" and then dismiss the idea entirely and move on with your life. Easy breezy.
QuoteAnother person may spend the next 6 months researching and diligently attempting to master the skill of inducing out of body experiences and learn via first-hand knowledge that there is much much more reality out there beyond this physical reality and consciousness persists with or without the physical body.
QuoteThat you have the ability to self-induce these experiences is fact.
QuoteWhether they are true experiences or tricks of the mind can only be determined via first hand experience.
QuoteOnly those who put in the time and effort will reap the benefits that only direct experience can offer. But to say that there is no proof possible is absolutely incorrect. If life does indeed persist beyond physical death, then this would be the way to find out. And those who want to find out bad enough will. Those who don't, won't.
Quote from: Casparov on May 06, 2014, 03:52:08 AMFurther, proof of afterlife is absolutely attainable. One would only need to acquire the skills and put in the time and dedication in order to induce out of body experiences at will, this would take maybe 6 months of disciplined and serious practice, and then one would be able to ascertain for one's self as to whether life after death is a possibility by experiencing it first hand.
QuoteIf one achieves these skills one can utilize the scientific method to determine if the experiences are tricks of the brain or real experiences.

Quote from: stromboli on May 06, 2014, 11:21:32 AMIf you can lay your hands on a small boat and some dynamite, you can leave a big impression on people in a park with a duck pond, just saying. And possibly provide free duck dinners for the shocked onlookers. And probably mentally scar a mess of children for life.
Quote from: Contemporary Protestant on May 06, 2014, 10:42:29 PMMental illness has been in my family for generations, and I have a therapist, and she told me that there is no cure for my depression, I will always hurt but the point of treatment is to deal with the pain. Just find a support group and hang in there. If you want to end it just think about how it would hurt everyone around you, there is always someone who cares I have to ask, why do u ask about the afterlife, if you're an atheist?
Quote from: johnson on May 07, 2014, 06:52:42 PMA little bit concerned about the possibility. There is no 100% guarantee.
Quote from: Jakenessif you believe in the supernatural, you do not understand modern science. Period.
