Scientists say we only see or perceive one per cent of "what is", and that we only use about five per cent of our brain. Scientists also can only explain five per cent of the material universe - the rest of it they call "dark energy", an imaginery substance because it cannot be perceived or measure...

I/O that might be the case, but once you learn the things that psychoactive plants and other psychedelics can show you it becomes unnecessary to use the substances anymore. This is a view held by Terrence McKenna, Ken Kesey, the late Timothy Leary, and for what it's worth, myself. Think of them as t...

Hmmm, redheads actually are a little higher on my scale, but i have to admit that when i do something stupid i blame it on being blonde. It's fun, and it generally makes the ladies laugh :P

Now i think you get me ;) It is a difficult task at first, but years of practice have made it simple. My biggest problem is communicating what i learn. Then again, the process is so important that i have come to realize that there is nothing to explain; anyone who is interested in gaining such persp...

Ahh, that 1 percent is what one perceives with all the filters they have learned since birth. That is the main reason that constantly changing my point of view is so important to me. To use the modern cliche, every time i am able to change my point of view or 'think outside the box' i strip away som...

So I think that perhaps the question about which part of the brain is responsible for what part of our communication may be misguided. The question perhaps should be, where does our thinking come from? That sounds like a much tougher question, but since communication is a translation of one's thoug...

What I'm finding interesting about it, Dannan, was that it touched on issues to do with empowerment and disempowerment. i find that when i can see balance in my environment that i feel very empowered. In my experience, one of the main differences between shamanism and religion is that shamanism emp...

Apology for your reaction accepted. Any apology for your point of view, even if you had offered it would not be wanted :) i think you are making some false assumptions about what i meant, but since i used so few words that is understandable. That would belong in another thread anyway. So please, car...

How about some examples of the parameters and the traits that cross them?

Well, maybe not archeology specifically, but genetics does fall under anthropology as a whole.

I/O Put me down as a disagree. Evolution isn't a predetermined path. Nor is it merely a tool for developing 'better' traits. Much of evolution is random chance. Traits that increase chance of survival or procreation naturally stand a good chance of being passed on, but some traits that confer disadv...
