Quote from: GSOgymrat on April 03, 2021, 08:29:02 PMI understand what you are talking about and I've never used drugs. Several of the things you mention, such as the subjective nature of consciousness, I explore in meditation. Altered states of consciousness, especially chemically induced, can produce feelings of euphoria, depersonalization, and a sensation that what is being experienced in that conscious state is more authentic than in an unaltered state. Psilocybin and other hallucinogens are being studied to treat anxiety, PTSD, addiction, and other mental health issues. I believe if these experiences bring you peace and cause you to behave better to people around you then they have value.However, these experiences are not an accurate source of knowledge. People don't come out of these experiences knowing new facts that apply to the physical universe. Altered states of consciousness provide a less accurate experience of the world, not more. For example, people can have bad trips that are horrifying. The feeling of absolute certainty that people are trying to kill you is no more real than the feeling of touching the face of God.
Quote from: pumita92 on April 04, 2021, 10:31:24 AMWhat you're saying is true.But what we think is true changes depending on our level of consciousness.Every time we dream at night we think our dreams are true. Until we wake up.
Quote from: Mike Cl on April 04, 2021, 11:48:03 AMAll of your posts are fictional wishful thinking. You have not even a whiff of empirical data to support your whimsy. What I think IS true (for me) and changes not by my level of consciousness, but by empirical data. And no, not every dream do I think is real nor true. I have woken myself out of a dream by telling myself that this is a dream; and a dream I so dislike that I need to wakeup. And I do. What is evident to me is that you seem so dissatisfied with you real, actual life that you need to create another life; one based on wishful thinking and whimsy. If that gets you through the night, then go for it.
