Didn't Remo's win the pizza contest a couple of years ago?
Now I have to check out TWO pizza places next time I'm in town. Good thing pizza (without pig snout etc) is actually a well balanced meal!
Yeah, we're heading for 50 tomorrow with rain. There goes the snow.
If you like Mexican, and you feel like slumming over the OG border into the lesser healed parts of my city, I can share with you my super secret best Mexican hole-in-the-wall. Parking, traffic safety, and sometimes personal safety is often an issue, though still worth the expedition.

If religion does not lead to realization and direct experience then it is mumbo jumbo.

To remain forever confined on the gross level of rituals, thoughts and scripture is a sure sign of inferiority.

LIMITATIONS OF SCIENCE:

The greatest limitations of science are:

1) Its incapacity to enter into the core of an object under investigation and to know its true nature by identification with it in consciousness.

2) Inability to cogently answer questions related to the origins of existence.

3) Its incapacity to uplift or regenerate nature and individual.

4) Its incapacity to engineer life from scratch.

5) Its inability to predict the future or to know the past of an individual/person.

6) Its incapacity to prevent death.

7) Its inability to revive the dead.

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA:

Page 97:

R D Laing in no way denied the existence of mental illness. But he insisted that, in order to understand a patient, the psychiatrist had to understand him in the context of his relations with other human beings, which included very centrally the relationship between the patient and psychiatrist himself. Traditional psychiatry, by contrast, has followed a Cartesian approach in which the patient is isolated from his or her environment - conceptually and physically - and labeled in terms of a well-defined mental disease. Laing emphasized that no one has schizophrenia like having a cold and went on to make the radical assertion that in many of the classic psychiatric texts the very psychopathology projected on to the person called "patient" can clearly be seen manifested in the mentality of the psychiatrist.

QUESTION:

Where lies the flaw in psychiatry/psychiatric methods as described above by Capra?

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA - PART 2:

Page 97

Conventional psychiatry is plagued by a confusion that lies at the very center of the conceptual problems of all modern, scientific medicine: the confusion between disease process and disease origins. Instead of asking why a mental illness occurs, medical researchers try to understand the biological mechanism through which the disease operates. These mechanisms, rather than the true origins, are seen as the causes of the illness. Accordingly, most current psychiatric treatments are limited to suppressing symptoms with psychoactive drugs. Although they have been very successful in doing so, this approach has not helped psychiatrists understand mental illness any better, nor has it allowed their patients to solve the underlying problems.

QUESTION:

What is meant by the biological basis of a mental illness?

Excerpt From UNCOMMON WISDOM By FRITJOF CAPRA - PART 3 - LSD:

Page 100

What is LSD and what is its effect on the human mind and body?

"This is a key question I asked myself for many years," replied Stan Grof. "The search for typical, mandatory pharmacological effects of LSD was an important aspect of my early analytical work on the LSD data.....After analyzing 3000 records from LSD sessions, I have not found a single symptom that would be an absolutely mandatory and invariant component of the LSD experience. The absence of any distinct drug-specific effects and the enormous range of phenomena that occur during these sessions have convinced me that LSD is best understood as a powerful unspecific amplifier, or catalyst, of mental processes, which facilitates the emergence of unconscious material from different levels of the human psyche. The richness and enormous variability of the LSD experience can be explained in this way by the fact that the entire personality of the subject and the structure of his or her unconscious play a decisive role. I realized that rather than studying the specific effects of a psychotic drug on the brain, I would be able to use LSD as a powerful research tool for the exploration of the human mind. When you compare material from consecutive LSD sessions of the same person, it becomes evident that there is a definite continuity, a successive unfolding of deeper and deeper levels of the unconscious. On this inner journey a person may first move through a Freudian phase, then pass through a death-rebirth experience that can be loosely referred to as Rankian, and the advanced sessions of the same person may have a mythological and religious quality that can best be described in Jungian terms. All these psychotherapeutic systems can therefore be useful for certain stages of LSD process."

QUESTIONS:

1) What is the unconscious as compared to the subconscious and the subliminal?

2) Why does a chemical like LSD confer on us these experiences in consciousness?

3) What is at the root of the LSD experiences?

4) What is the mind?

Casa Villa on W Main - park on Stillwater and walk briskly (Do not stare or gawk at the gang members, do not spend an extraordinary long time locking your car or otherwise attracting attention).(Once inside do NOT stare excessively at the cutie behind the register either, if you value yourself mostly intact...)

I did buy a new one, a lot lighter. But I learned that flimsy plastic shovels do not fracture ice so well. Black ice was the issue this morning. Slush is the issue now.

EVOLUTION OF MATTER OR OF CONSCIOUSNESS?

Evolution means the successive emergences in matter of the involved grades of consciousness with each gradation engineering its unique material form. To imagine that sentience emerged from insentient chemicals and that life-forms of superior information content evolved from life-forms of inferior information content is outrageously paradoxical and a shocking assault on the human intelligence.

Do we REALLY want people running around engineering life from scratch OR reviving the dead?

EVOLUTION is an act of VOLITION of the inherent consciousness in a system as it emerges from a state of involution with the materialization of its concomitant energy content.

The words "pure" and "impure" as applied to sentient entities are misnomers since being is a mixture of many states or gradations of existence. The parts and planes of a sentient entity can exist in either of the two states - "balance" or "imbalance".

Obviously, Papa, these feats cannot be engineered using material means and spell one of the major limitations - if not the major limitation - of science.

PERFECT BALANCE among the various parts and planes of being means perfect immunity from wear and tear and decomposition with the result being physical immortality. The stupendous feat of attaining to a state of perfect balance cannot be executed via the ordinary consciousness.
