Why should dairy not be mixed with meat? Is it damaging to the body in any way? Why? Why is this superstition still in vogue?
Not mixing meat and dairy products is an addition to the commandment. It says "You shall not seethe a kid in his mothers milk". Which means just that, you don't boil a goat in it's mothers milk. Milk is the fruit of the tree of life, and it's sacrilegious.

I am aware of this but it makes no sense.

From a nutritional point of view - meat can be mixed with dairy. It's perfectly fine.

Shedding of blood to save another - provided the other can be saved, if at all - is a pagan act. Animal sacrifices and circumcision, too, are pagan customs. A truly heroic person would spill neither his own blood nor the blood of others but would, using his incisive power, save himself as well as others. This is true greatness.

Criminals like those violent blacks in US jails may convert to Islam since it appeals to their violent nature. Scientists are turning to Buddhism or to the Vedanta, if at all they seek out an intelligent faith that supports scientific findings. Islam is for dummies with all its stress on creation from nothing which no scientist will ever support nor which any averagely intelligent person ever accept. Nothing gives rise to nothing

NDE can be simulated in the lab but here too it is the physico-vital energy with its concomitant consciousness that leaves the body.

Psychopaths show warped brain wiring - is brain warping due to a distorted inherent consciousness that causes the brain warping or is it that the natural brain warping causes a distortion in the innate consciousness or perhaps it's on account of heredity here but again is there a transfer of a warped consciousness showing up as distorted brain wiring or of warped brain wiring creating a disturbed pattern of consciousness via genetic transmission that comes to offspring from parents?

The cosmos clearly manifests a self-organizing and an emergent mechanism which indicates that energy is conscious, otherwise we're forced to fall back on the ridiculous scientific paradox of insentient energy/matter producing sentience.

The external reality is conditioned by the nervous system. This is how we perceive the external reality. This is perceptual reality. But, the external reality can exist independent of the nervous system.
