Only kidding - good on em! Hope some interesting stuff comes out of it.


By "interesting" I presume you mean "the location of their future Moon Base"?

No, I am not kidding. International agreements notwithstanding, the first country to establish a base on the Moon takes control of the Moon. If it takes 5 missions to deliver the materials necessary to establish such a base then the 6th mission can be used to weaponize it.

This is fascinating .. I dont understand it all, so if anyone has a specific interest in counsciousness and numerology please translate and interpret.

I gather that one of the findings or implications is that similar neural activity was detected in waking brains as in dreaming brains .. REM sleep .. in fact the suggestion might be that brain activity is higher.



In the link provided by Skyweir was wrote:
Overall, our study adds to a growing body of work - much of which has been led by Carhart-Harris and colleagues - that is now revealing the brain-basis of the psychedelic state. Our data show that a simple measure of neuronal signal diversity places the psychedelic state 'above' the normal waking state, in comparison to the lower diversity found in sleep and anesthesia. Taking this work forward stands to do much more than enhance our understanding of psychedelics. It may help expose how, why - and for whom - psychedelics may help alleviate the appalling suffering of psychiatric disorders like depression. And in the end, it may help us figure out how our normal everyday conscious experiences of the world, and the self, come to be.
After all, everything we experience - even when stone cold sober - is just a kind of 'controlled hallucination.' Our perceptions are just the brain's "best guess" of what's going on, reined in by sensory signals.


It's far from conclusive, as is often the case with ongoing research. It seems to add further likelihood to enhanced consciousness being a result of LSD use (despite this, I've never wanted to try the stuff and still don't). I wish them success in being able to use their research to treat people suffering from depression. That's about all I can think to say on this, Sky.

I wonder how that stuff works when it's between languages with significantly different sentence structure, like German putting the verb at the end.
