    Graham Hancock, western culture needs to adopt

    Graham Hancock, western culture needs to adopt shamanic practices.

    Researcher and author Graham Hancock presented his thesis that "supernatural" entities such as aliens and fairies are actually transdimensional beings that humans encounter during altered states of consciousness. The ability to shape-shift has been ascribed to both modern aliens as well as elves and other entities reported centuries ago, he detailed.

    Around 35,000 to 40,000 years ago humans underwent a sudden change, and the emergence of cave and rock paintings are evidence of this, said Hancock, who noted that some of their depictions were of part human/part animal beings. He believes these represent the supernatural entities, and through altered states (probably due to ingesting psilocybin mushrooms) humans learned advanced skills from their encounters with these beings.

    Nowadays, shamans commonly have such altered state communications. They feel humanity is at a crossroads-- the West has lost contact with the spirit world, and many of the world's woes are due to this, Hancock reported. As part of his experiential research, he traveled to South America and took the psychedelic plant mixture ayahuasca. During one such episode, he described a confrontation with an alien being, but rather than being an extraterrestrial, he suggested it inhabits another dimension that can only be accessed during an altered state.

    read Huxley's book "Island". It is about a utopia where they use psychedelics as a sacrament. I highly recommend it.

    Shamanic techniques and ideas are certainly a part of the cultural smörgåsbord's now......incredibly.

    the movie Zardoz?



    The film shows how a decadent elite uses religion to control simple mided savages. No change there then.

    Post appocolyptic utopian society playing gods from a vortex. Sean Connery with a poney tail!


    read Stanislaw Lem's book "The Futurological Congress"?

    It's about a future in which *everyone* is using psychedelic drugs and what that looks like to a brave few who dare to stay straight:

    I highly recommend it.

    I dont really think that psychodelics are necessary.

    But at the same token i'm currious to understand how they they can be used as tools. I think alot of their use in our culture is misguided.
    I do find interesting is the correlation between what you can do naturally and what people do in those states of the usage of drugs. I find it truly interesting to have the same effect through meditation or other no drug related ways.

    Heres a video i thought i'd post on this thread. Its Terence Mckenna talking about the differenaces between meditation and hallucinogens .



    I think that we are Gaia, and are connected at an unconscious level. A lot of what is considered alien, i think are actually parts of our own collective mind, and the intelligence of the planet. We are one Life, connected at the root. To me, dmt seems a direct entry into this world, and seems like it must have been the drug of choice during the neolithic and for a long time afterwards, for shaman and healers who needed a deeper look into situations at hand. I like mckenna's idea of shamanic dilution. That it really takes guts and clarity to take dmt, and when shaman became priests, they made the whole deal symbolic with communion ceremonies instead of the real deal. Anyway, human consciousness is a long way from there now, but not our unconscious. I think we are being developed by Gaia as a specialized organ, and during this stage of that development, are unconscious of our unity and nature. I don't know this of course, but it is a working hypothesis for me that explains experiences that i've had.

    The internet is the last light of truth and hope...it is truly of the people, by the people and for the people. We must not let it be subverted for any purpose other than the truth. And that truth shall spread to every man woman and child across the globe. No longer will those in power carry the sole means to decide for us, yet we now shall have the power to decide to tune them out.

    sometimes drugs are used to access other dimensional levels rather than do the work through mediation or other mind stimulating exercises because people are just plain shallow and lazy.
    When they do this, they do access these dimensional levels as well as some others that are nothing but down right disturbing and do not support worthwhile and enlightening materials. In other words serious abberations.
    People need to keep in mind that there are Spirits unworthy to have a "vehicle" such as the human form to experience this dimesnion. Therefore, they are always "looking" awaiting an individual weakening or comprimising their "protective barrier" and get access to that individual's flesh body. This is usually how possession of a person takes place.
    The entities that usually are responsible for this are Demons of one sort or another.
