Both were fun, but the D&D movie was better than the Mario movie.

That is all.

Someday I will play skywind and it will be amazing.

Well done cram for predicting the next 12 years for elder scrolls, probably see a new gta before es6

I have a skyrim game I occasionally fire up when I'm super bored

basically decided to play a feral orc that treats cities as a dungeon, and is trying to kill the entire killable population of every town. I use a cleared dungeon as my "residence".

its... not as hard as I expected.

 But I wish I had one of those goblin staves from Oblivion.

I think the point of the schroedinger's cat experiment is that it helped Schroedinger explain to everybody why they needed to lay off the physics.

"ThE CaT ExISts aND DOes NOT ExiST UNTIL ITS eigenstaTe is OBSERVEd"

these are the thoughts of the utterly deranged

I think I am stuck in the early phases. I keep oscillating back and forth between existing and not existing, but it's going so goddamn fast that the little mites and microbes that live on my skin are getting thrown off like one of those spinny things at the playground. We're grasping at straws to break the camel's back and all I've got is attitude. The folks at the park think I'm weird. But I'll show them. I'LL SHOW THEM ALL.

/reserves everything.

Hey did you all know that the limbic system - the emotional brain of the mind - is the portal to the Brahman, which is the quantum, which is God, or 'might as well be'?

And if you destroy your own limbic system, you can force the download of a kundalini backup, complete with Goddess manifestations, quantum cognitive function, and uhhhhh...other...things?  Like, cats like you extra, now?  That's the best powerup.

I'm not sure why I'm posting this if I'm just going to talk to myself again, but you know sometimes I have some great things to say so why not.

Oui, has anyone seen the Kalki's white horse laying around?  Fucking thing where is it...

I hope all of me is having a lovely evening out there.

oh no no no

if my Limbus system is God, then god truly is an ad obsessed crazy woman

which would explain why she revealed herself to Lord Omar while he was watching TV, and then vanished into an aspirin commercial

She's right, you know.  We exist only to knock people out of satori, in our efforts to placate the fiendish Cramulus.

Old Dok Howl is a master of lin-ji's fly whisk, but in modern times its been reincarnated as a cinderblock with a pipe sticking out of it. If he whacks you in the back of your head while you're meditating, hold the fuck on to your eyeballs.

by the way, Hi, I'm Cramulus.

I also run a little Discord server which is also a Discordian Cabal. We're the Aftermathematics Research Cabal. Shoot me a PM if you want an invite. No all spags allowed.

Do people at least show up and F5, F5, F5?

From 2007 to, like, 2012? 2014? I checked this forum 10+ times a day.

Now, ten years later, whenever I sit down at a browser, my fingers still automatically type "pr", expecting the rest of the URL to autofill in.

I think it is possible to exist all the time on higher circuits. However, I don't know if that would necessarily be a good thing...

Have you ever met anyone permanently operating on a "higher" circuit? I just think about people like Alan Watts.. definitely enlightened in some sense. Still a miserable alchoholic.

I think that "unlocking" the higher circuits represents an increased "capacity", but doesn't necessarily mean you stay there forever. I think that consciousness which includes those "higher circuits" is only possible in certain moments.

I see the 8 circuits as evolution toward more love.

That's one possible model.

My personal thinking is that they represent an evolution towards more consciousness. That doesn't necessarily lead to more love, but for a lot of people it does.

Because a lot of people live in a selfish, ego-based world.. and psychedellics give some people the potential to taste other modes of being, like being more aware of other people's emotional experiences. This can lead to increased capacity for compassion and empathy. I think that [sensitivity towards others] is an "ahah" moment for many people because we're all conditioned to focus on other things. Maybe that says more about our alienating society than it does about psychedelic drugs.

I always think about that Tim Leary study that RAW cited -- about how people expectations about the psychedelic experience have a huge impact on how it actually works for them. Set and Setting, all that. People who expect to meet god on LSD often do meet god on LSD. People who expect to giggle for 8 hours have exactly that experience. And psychedelics are positioned in our culture as "mind expanding" substances, they are enjoyed by heady people, so maybe this mentally primes us to have these inner experiences.

I am reluctant to attribute any magical powers to the class of drugs itself. I've met a lot of people who think the world would fix itself if everybody just had a mushroom trip together. I disagree strongly; a lot of people are only barely hanging on to this merry-go-round, and all it takes is a little push for them to spin out into space. And as much as psychedelics can dissolve, they also have the potential to calcify and reenforce existing beliefs, deepen identification, and bring the shadow to the surface.

I'm interested in this via my work in Gurdjieff groups. The 8-circuit model was partially derived from Gurdjieff's notation of levels of being - "Man-1" through "Man-7". But in Gurdjieff groups, you never explicitly discuss what "level" someone "is". It's probably not actually quantifiable like that.

I think Buddhist meditation groups have a similar thing going on too -- in some traditions, there is a hierarchy of meditative experiences, but it's tabboo to speak too explicitly about your own "accomplishments". And partially because, I think, these initiatory experiences aren't permanent. Maybe our range of consciousness is expanded, but that doesn't mean we always have access to that. I may fire on all cylinders during meditation, but then I get a little hungry or horny and I'm an idiot all over again.
