The constant hostility and strawmanbuilding really does grind. I tell you about impressions I gathered during a pretty fucking freaky profound trip, you infer my attitude towards science and my world view. That is so unscientific, Woman-who-has-yo-justify-herself-all-the-time and Underappreciated-man-who-has-found-solace-in-grump! Although I don't think it is the only thing worth caring about, I do care about science. A lot. In fact I am beginning to suspect I care about it a great deal more than either of you.

What is this self-indulgent shit?

Nobody cares about science anymore. :(

DRUGS R MORE BETTER.  THERE'S FAIRIES AND CRONES.

SCIENCE DON'T KNOW NOTHING, TAKING DRUGS IS CONSCIOUSNESS ENGINEERING THAT GOES BACK FOREVS.

I am fascinated by Holist's aversion to actual science.

I'm kind of fascinated by the totally dismissive response to my attempt at participating, like "oh so research has found the mechanisms by which certain hallucinogens can help rewire debilitating physical responses to traumatic memories? Oh, well, that's all theoretical, I'ma talk about subjective experiences through my cultural filter".

I was like, this is interesting and I know something about it, but apparently what I find fascinating about it is completely invalid because maiden mother and crone. Which surely can't be experiences that are the result of reframing experiences in a vulnerably plastic brain in light of a particular cultural background, it must be some glorious Universal Truth, because fuck science what does it know anyway.

Besides, doing a ton of hallucinogens at 17 makes you Forever Wise. You can just stop, secure in the knowledge that you had universal enlightenment, and never try again.

Because that's totally useful information. Just blow your mind, and then you can be right forever and in perpetuity because you got Enlightened. That's it, the end. No need to fuss around with learning stuff, you did it and you're done.

Who needs rationalism when you can sit in the corner and smear your feces on the wall?   :lulz:

For some reason tho, these non-scientific approaches seem to throw a whole bunch of panties into turmoil round here so, yeah, fuck that noise.

The world has had enough bliss-ninny gurus.

But it's like, maaaan, like the Mother Goddess, and I know stuff, like ALL the stuff, and shit.

I initially wondered if this was some kind of elaborate Twitter troll, like kids pretending they didn't know who Osama Bin Laden was after he was killed.

Alas, no.  I found articles going back over 3 years talking about Twitter's "colon" obsession, and at least two Twitter accounts devoted to updating the masses on Twitter's love of colons.

It might be paywalled.  I think he has access to some journals, due to his work as a psychiatrist, but probably not the sort of access one would get with a University account or so on.

Oh, gotcha. That's unfortunate, because I would really like to see what the analysis would look like after the police force in the US became so heavily militarized and the prison systems so much more monetized.
