I looked up definition and etymology of ‘lite’ and ‘light is the correct speling, even if it could be argued that ‘lite’ came first, so using ‘lite’ wil cause confusion, I think, as it certainly did for me.Quote
I was thinking of you only yesterday. I’ll return to that momentarily.
‘Lite’ in the title differentiates between the original and retired DMT & My Occult Mind and this much smaller revised version: DMT & My Occult Mind - Lite.
Since the word ‘occult’ means hidden, then I think it can be said that there is an occult aspect to the mind, but whatever and wherever it is, it is part of the physical brain and no objective evidence exists to locate it elsewhere. Just to speak of ‘the occult’ is of course to evoke a mystic thought or atmosphere, and our human species has always enjoyed this aspect. but to take the step into believing that it is a reality is one I certainly would not take.
I am sorry to hear that, especially as theosophy, psychic surgery and associated mystic mumbo-jumbo have been clearly shown to be faked. Why would you want to believe there is still truth and reality in them, I wonder, but for that I do not request a reply. ?Quote
My 'occult mind' refers to the significant influence that Occult literature (especially Theosophy) has had on my mind and my ontological outlook as a young adult.
As for ‘powerful, non-physical life forms’, the same total lack of any kind of actual evidence exists, i.e. none.
Of course, all studies, whether of the real, the unreal, the scientific and the bizarre all add to the ideas in human minds and add to the infinite number of words and images the brain acquires and records. There is no such person as an expert on occult matters, when ‘the occult’ refers, as it usually does’ to the mystic etc, although there are probably many people who have read and studied widely the ideas and writings of other people who have considered they were experts.
Searching for further information about her, I do not get the impression that she is interested in objective scientific research, following the scientific method. I could be quite wrong of course, but do not intend to follow this up.Quote
Now, you came to mind yesterday after I received notification that my work was referenced and quoted in science paper: ‘Entity Encounters and the Therapeutic Effect of the Psychedelic Mystical Experience’ by PhD candidate Anna Lutkajtis. It’s a very lucid and interesting read.
