Well Zuezzz, I did watch the last video you asked us to watch and I pointed out some errors. You didn't make any comment and simply posted another video. That's not really fair is it?


No that's not fair at all, I have no recollection of this incident, can you link me to it? This thread or another? I'll be more than happy to reply now.

I presume not then?

I guess since most skeptic forums are atheist predicated, and Mayer is one of the most prominent (open) atheists on American TV, people might enjoy this video. "Put LSD in kids haloween candy, it'd probably be the healthiest thing they've had all day"

[I]does not confirm your bias, you will find that it is a disabling of normal brain function, and not a profound, conscious awakening thing.[I]

A common part of the feedback from anecdotal evidence is that the ego is disabled. This may be the scary part for a majority of those who have tried this.

What Brain function are you referring to?

Sadly, Zeuzzz died in December 2016. He cannot answer your questions.

Zeuzzz was enthusiastic about alternative forms of evolution and consciousness, and posted about those topics here, but never had any coherent claims and never produced any evidence. He was a nice bloke, but he was permanently confused.

Generated? :lol:
Stop watching science fiction, stop watching matrix or pseudo physicists (jews) promoting this garbage of reality and brain and "virtual" nonsense.
Reality is real, is utterly independent of us and it isn't any god damn generated by our brain, our brain is doing jack {!#%@}, we are just perceiving. brain generating reality only in matrix movies.

Actually this is a fairly accurate statement Sandisk. The brain receives information from the senses to inform the perceptual mechanisms of what may be out there, but at the same time, the perceptual mechanisms themselves use a top down flow of information to feed back their own version of events to the basic sensory receptors and their basic feature recognition systems. So the flow of information is not only from the senses to the higher level perceptual centres, it also flows backward to update the lower level centres of the brains "best guess" about what the sensory information really is. Perception is like a constant hallucination.

You are anti Jewish.

The Skeptic Society Forum hosts the leading anti-holocaust denial debate forums. You are obviously the worst form of scum. You would be there, working hand in hand with the Nazis, stuffing innocent children into gas chambers

I strongly suggest you never post here again. Try Stormfront or some other neo-nazi forum.

You are also anti-science yet posting on a science based forum.

Just go away.

I have no idea what Jewish people have to do with any of this discussion, but I must caution sandisk about forum rules regarding defamation of ethnic groups.
