What the fuck is a "science of the mental"?

My favorite new catchphrase, that's what. :lulz:

Some consider the paranormal/ occult phenomena as science that has yet to be explained. I consider this the most logical because if it's not a science of the physical world then it of course would a science of the mental. As far as humanity perceives, there's really no difference between the two. Mastering and learning the secrets of one will have the same results as the other.

I can't consider myself an ape, mabey a parasitic cell in global bacteria disease, but not an ape. Apes don't trash the world and organize order to control other apes. Sure, sometimes they may ban together, but they never enslaved one another. Humans are a slightly intelligent virus that's slowly sucking the earth of its resources and life. You look at the world from space and see the major cities, they don't like pinnacles of engineering and process. They look like dark, grey bacteria that spit smoke and smell like a nasty infection (especially LA.)

At least that's one view. 

Paranormal occurrences are never proven.  Find one example of anything spiritual being backed with reputable hard evidence, and I'll delete this rant consider a spirituality.



What about that toasted cheese sandwich that had the Virgin Mary's face on it?

Its called Pareidolia, and it works using the face recognition part of the brain. We deal so much with faces that we subconciously look for anything with "similar" "characteristics" in any thing, and any object. Its the whole recognition system of the body.

Dude, haven't you ever looked for shapes in clouds? Same thing.
One by one, we break the sheep from their Iron Bar Prisons and expand their imaginations, make them think for themselves. In turn, they break more from their prisons. Eventually, critical mass is reached. Our key word: Resolve. Evangelize with compassion and determination. And realize that there will be few in the beginning. We are hand picking our successors. They are the future of Discordianism. Let us guide our future with intelligence.

Easy.  But, don't delete your rant pls.

Researchers at the Maharishi School of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, found that meditation has a pervasive effect on stress. They looked at a group of people who had meditated for four months and found that they produced less of the stress hormone cortisol.

I don't think there's anything "paranormal" about meditation.

So is the McDonald's management school.

But I don't trust them to do medical studies, either.

Besides, as has been pointed out, "meditation" isn't paranormal in the least.  It's just "relaxing really hard".

I could dig up sources showing that meditation has a positive effect on stress. I could also dig up sources that show tibetan monks having the physiologic ability to increase their body temperature to the point where they can dry freezing wet robes draped over them.

Neither of those things have to do with religion though, and certainly nothing paranormal. Its all very powerful psychosomatic responce. Very interesting, and very useful, and also very physical in its evidence. No paranormal shit here.

Spirituality is just the art of making shit disappear by slamming the door in their face.
So long, and thanks for all the shit.

OK, pareidoia explains the face in the sandwich.

Tell me then, smart guy, how do you explain that woman in Mexico who had the Virgin Mary's face burnt into her nachos skillet? Hmm?

I think it's an important distinction.
