[quote=“Lady Eva, post:1, topic:7726”]IS THERE a missing element, even? Or do we need to be lifted just a fraction outside ordinary thought, to percive this stuff? Are crazy people whose brains are really souped up with weird chemistry actually closer to the natural state than those of us who think we’re “sane”?
Thoughts, anyone? :)[/quote]
Ordinary thought is pretty much the EGO which is the barrier between the objective reality and obtaining grasp of the spiritual world in a very tangible way.
Once that obstacle is out of the way, anything is possible.
In general we don
t seem to realize how big the EGO is and how strongly cemented it is in our consciousness and the multi-layer structure of it. Its a door upon a door upon a door and so on, it`s the reflection of a mirror in a mirror.
t believe that throughout the documented history, over the last few millennia, has anyone actually managed to surpass this barrier. If anyone did, then he/she became a God, so itd be impossible for mortals to document such event.
Some passed a few layers with most stuck in the superficial structures. Admittedly and this is well documented, those who went a little deeper used hallucinogenics or narcotics.
Pythia who was the Oracle of Delphi and the most powerful divination system of Ancient times, was kept on a constant trance, by inhaling hydrocarbon gases. Even then, the revelations of God Apollo she was putting forth were pretty much gibberish, as her EGO was integrating with the God`s consciousness, and a whole army of translators was needed to decipher them.
In all honesty, i don
t believe that the EGO can be surpassed effectively without external support. Unless we find a way to make our pineal gland more active or control it on demand. Maybe in the future we can use quantum machines that can colonize it and turn up its functionality. When that happens, itll be a massive turning point for the advancement of our civilization. Many scholars say that this is the next logical step for humanity anyways.
