LSD in clinical studies causes patients to access different realities

Dr Stanislav Grof  according to book The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot, conducted studies on mental patients using LSD to treat schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. During over 30 years of research  (started in 1950) he documented over 3000 cases when patients were provided with dozes of LSD and entered trans in which they were able to communicate consistently with great details messages from other epochs, connect with individuals who were already dead, remember times being in the mothers womb, correctly recording emotions of their mother during pregnancy and connecting them to events which happened before subjects were born. Some were able to connect with beings or entities who could pass information about situation totally foreign to the patient, but when confirmed the information had true meaning about facts and events which were described during the session. Dr Grof was able to cure some of the patients through application of LSD and accessing hidden memories from the realm of collective unconsciousness. The subjects once faced with the information provided during the session were able to recover their healthy state from illnesses like schizophrenia, phobia and continued their normal life afterwards.

Dr Grof was a firm believer that our lives are holographically interconnected.
Taken from The Holographic Universe.
Grof had one female patient who suddenly became convinced she had assumed the identity of a female of a species of prehistoric reptile. During the course of her hallucination, she not only gave a richly detailed description of what it felt like to be encapsuled in such a form, but noted that the portion of the male of the species's anatomy was a patch of colored scales on the side of its head. What was startling to Grof was that although the woman had no prior knowledge about such things, a conversation with a zoologist later confirmed that in certain species of reptiles colored areas on the head do indeed play an important role as triggers of sexual arousal. The woman's experience was not unique. During the course of his research, Grof encountered examples of patients regressing and identifying with virtually every species on the evolutionary tree (research findings which helped influence the man-into-ape scene in the movie Altered States). Moreover, he found that such experiences frequently contained obscure zoological details which turned out to be accurate.
Regressions into the animal kingdom were not the only puzzling psychological phenomena Grof encountered. He also had patients who appeared to tap into some sort of collective or racial unconscious. Individuals with little or no education suddenly gave detailed descriptions of Zoroastrian funerary practices and scenes from Hindu mythology. In other categories of experience, individuals gave persuasive accounts of out-of-body journeys, of precognitive glimpses of the future, of regressions into apparent past-life incarnations.

How Phil Jackson (NBA coach) uses spirituality to build winning team

English: Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan and Phil...

I found this article below not because I was searching for NBA scores but rather for inspiring stories.  Not only I have found inspiring story but it was based on application of spirituality to high competitive sport.  So I killed two birds with one stone so to speak. :)

Being selfless is a concept which is usually not taught in schools, although life here and there brings those lessons to us. An NBA couch has used principle of team connectedness through a concept of selflessness, a concept where team's success is more important than individual success.

Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson—by percentage (.738) the winningest coach in NBA history—is renowned for his ability to turn megastars into team players. And his secret is spiritual. “The most effective way to forge a winning team,” he writes in Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior, “is to call on the players' need to connect with something larger than themselves.” Blending principles from Zen Buddhism and the teachings of the Lakota Sioux with his experience from over twenty years as a professional player and coach, Jackson led Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls to three consecutive titles not once, but twice, from '91 to '93 and '96 to '98. Then he did it yet again with the Lakers and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, from '00 to '02. Before Jackson arrived, both the Bulls and the Lakers were teams that, despite the presence of breathtaking talent, had failed to achieve the harmony needed to win championships. Yet under his guidance, schooled in his characteristically unselfish, team-oriented style, they went on to record-breaking success.

Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. --Andrew Carnegie

The coach believes that when players work together, special kind of energy is being released which could be compared to powerful group intelligence, which is much greater than what coach can come up with and each individual player can do. Phil Jackson explains that when a player puts self-interests aside for greater good, he maximizes his capabilities which would not manifest if he would only act on his own. The outcome of such approach functions like everybody in the team heightens the capabilities of each member of the team making those abilities much higher than they could be on its own.
It appears that players can instinctively sense what other members of the team are going to do before they actually make the move, so they can get ready and either assist that effort or position themselves to better take advantage of the current situation.

Coach compares fingers of one hand to this team connectedness which know what other will do when some task is being performed.

The selflessness is the soul of teamwork.

In order to create such team effort, one has to reward situation when members of the team act selflessly and not controlled by big ego.

Well, one has to demonstrate that if a person does this, they're rewarded for it, because the team succeeds. The fact is, selflessness is the soul of teamwork. We have a practical rule in our game: when you stop the basketball, when it resides in your presence and you hold it for longer than two counts, you've destroyed our rhythm. When the ball is in your hands, you become the focal point. And when you become the focus, our system breaks down. It's that simple. Suddenly the defense can catch up, and the spacing is destroyed. So it's the unselfish players—players who are more interested in reading what's happening and keeping the flow going on the floor—who are the most valuable players that you have. They may only be averaging seven points a game, four points a game, or whatever, but their ability to play in a selfless manner gives the team its real opportunities. In those individuals, the power of we instead of me is more advanced. They feel more responsibility to the group, and that's why you're better off with maybe two very, very talented and perhaps selfish people on the team than five or six or seven. That's why teams that are less talented but more selfless and group-oriented can have more success. You might say the San Antonio Spurs were a successful team last year because of that ability that they had. The Bulls were a very successful team because of that ability. And the Lakers, when I first started watching them in the late nineties, were not successful—even though they were very, very talented—because they couldn't do that.

Traces of technical civilization thousands of years ago

Lonar crater (Google Earth)
Lonar crater (Google Earth)
Science and history are attempting to convince us that we have started out as a civilization  in caves over 10,000 - 40,000 years ago and currently we are at the highest level of human evolution.  Some of the ancient artifacts and even writings point to totally different conclusions. We are finding more and more unexplained archeological proofs which after being examined and applied through alternate way of thinking, can convince us that possibly more than 10,000 years ago the technological advances on earth were even higher than those today. In my previous articles I was showing examples of that. 

Today I would like to point to some ancient writings and present the possibility of nuclear war happening in the past on this planet possibly caused by ancient humans or visitors from other planets. Let's start with the Hindu ancient texts using

Mahabharata [book Mausalaparwan]

"Gurkha, flying a swift and powerful vimana (fast aircraft) hurled a single projectile (rocket) charged with the power of the Universe (nuclear device). An incandescent column of smoke and flame, as bright as ten thousand suns, rose with all its splendor. It was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death, which reduced to ashes the entire race of the Vrishnis and the Andhakas. The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Hair and nails fell out; Pottery broke without apparent cause, and the birds turned white. ...After a few hours all foodstuffs were infected... escape from this fire the soldiers threw themselves in streams to wash themselves and their equipment."

….The Vayu (the presiding deity of that mighty weapon) bore away crowds of Samsaptakas with steeds and elephants and cars and weapons, as if these were dry leaves of trees…

Borne away by the wind O King, they looked highly beautiful like flying birds…flying away from trees….”  

The Mahabharata 

And again, in the Naryamastra Mokshana Parva (Drona Parva), reference is made to the “Agneya Weapon” incapable of being resisted by the very gods.

Meteors flashed down from the firmament…A thick gloom suddenly shrouded the host. All points of the compass were enveloped by that darkness…Inauspicious winds began to blow…the sun seemed to turn round, the universe, scorched with heat, seemed to be in a fever. The elephants and other creatures of the land, scorched by the energy of that weapon, ran in flight….The very waters being heated, the creatures residing in that element began to burn..hostile warriors fell down like trees burnt down in a raging fire- huge elephants burnt by that weapon, fell down on the earth…uttering fierce cries …others (s) scorched by the fire ran hither and thither, as in the midst of a forest conflagration, the steeds…and the cars (chariots) also burnt by the energy of that weapon looked…like the tops of trees burnt in a forest fire…” …winds dry and strong and showering gravel blew from every side…Birds began to wheel making circles…The horizon on every side seemed to be covered with fog. Meteors – showering blazing coals fell on the earth from the sky…The Sun’ disk…seemed to be always covered with dust…Fierce circles of light were seen every day around both the sun and the moon…A little while after the Kuru king, Yudhishshira heard of the wholesale carnage of the Vrishnis in consequence of the iron bolt…(Mausala Parva). “….O illustrious one – let the threefold universe – the future, the Past and the Present exist. From thy wrath a substance like fire has sprung into existence; even now blistering hills, trees and rivers and all kinds of herbs and grass in the mobile and immobile universe is being reduced to ashes! (Abhimanyu Badha Parva). 

Four hundred kilometers north-east of Mumbai, there is another unusual evidence, -a huge crater Lonar. It is a round bowl with evolutionary age of 50,000 years , a diameter of 2154 meters, the pressure at the time of the alleged shock meteor reached 600 000 atmospheres which caused enormous temperatures that melted rock. At the same time there isn't anything that would indicate that the crater was the result of a meteorite impact. Pat Frank, an American expert on space programs, developed a theory which states that this type of craters can be [also in the absence of any other explanation] powerful nuclear explosions.

If it is true that nuclear explosions were happening in ancient times, we can also ask questions like what happened to such civilization as Sumerians. 

A leading expert on Sumerian civilization Samuel Kramer translated some of the Sumerian tablets as follows:

On the land [Sumer] fell a calamity, one unknown to man;
one that had never been seen before,
one which could not be withstood.
A great storm from heaven...
A land-annihilating storm...
An evil wind, like a rushing torrent...
A battling storm joined by a scorching heat...
By day it deprived the land of the bright sun, in the evening the stars did not shine...
The people, terrified, could hardly breathe;
the evil wind clutched them, does not grant them another day...
Mouths were drenched with blood, heads wallowed in blood...
The face was made pale by the Evil Wind.
It caused cities to be desolated, houses to become desolate;
stalls to become desolate, the sheepfolds to be emptied...
Sumer’s rivers it made flow with water that is bitter;
its cultivated fields grow weeds, its pastures grow withering plants.

Another mystery is the great glass sheets of the Sahara. When the first test atomic bomb exploded in New Mexico, the desert sand turned green there in the molten glaze. Similar panes of glass were found on areas of the ancient desert located in different regions of the world. One of the greatest mysteries of ancient Egypt are the big glass panels stretching across the Sahara Desert for hundreds of kilometers. Those mysterious sheets of glass where found in 1932. Some of the pieces of glass found there, were weighing more than 26 kg. It was the purest natural glass ever found - made up of 98 percent of silica.

When the city of Mohenjo Daro was excavated in the last century archaeologists found skeletons lying in the streets, some holding hands, as if caught by some great catastrophe. The skeletons are among the most radioactive comparable with those of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. There are many ancient cities all over the world in which stones and bricks were literally melted together. They can be found in India Ireland, Scotland France and Turkey. It is difficult to explain such melting of ceramic materials other than as a result of the atomic bomb. Moreover, in the streets of Mohenjo Daro there were many black pieces of glass found, which later were determined to be clay pots melted under high heat.

Another mystery which totally baffles current science is the Sun-Star of Peru.
Full article here.
Nestled in the mysterious reaches of the Peruvian desert in the Palpa Mountains is one of the most precise geometric configurations known to man:  The Sun-Star, and its “satellite” – the Sun-Cross.  This famed Geoglyph has for centuries remained an obscure earthly reflection of ancient calibration – an astronomical wonderment depicting something far and beyond the immediate reach of human understanding … if the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt, is to metrologists the Seventh Wonder of the World (still standing) in the Northern Hemisphere – then the Sun-Star of Peru is the “Eighth” World Wonder whose measurements may claim the Southern Hemisphere.

There is increasing evidence of advanced technologies used in ancient times

Is this May? Photo by Bogdan Fiedur
Evidence of highly evolved technological processes and monumental size of ancient buildings has always fascinated mankind in modern era.
Researchers are trying to understand  how ancient civilizations could have developed  Egyptian pyramids and how ancient builders could have obtained such an amazing precision which even today would be difficult to replicate.

See my other article  Were Egyptian Pyramids Built by Higher Civilization?

Majority of historians simply accept the fact that early human civilization thousands of years ago has built the Great Pyramid and stone complexes of South America, but yet some are searching for more clues and  even extraterrestrial intervention.

Countless examples of high level stone processing point to unbelievable precision and question current theories and established knowledge propagated in history books about origins of ancient structures.
Most historians are however trained to perpetuate certain historical writings and keep historical status quo  in spite of many obvious findings which point to higher knowledge or assistance available to ancients.
In videos below we can see evidence indicating that thousands of perfectly fitted stones is not simply a work of stonemasons and their primitive tools but evidence of higher technology used there. 

Below video shows that in many cases stones were cut with some cutting tools with high precision, which can be found near the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Similarly cut with unnatural precision are block-like stones which can be found in South America in the Puma PunkuThis could have been not done by primitive people as the the cuts are incredibly sophisticated and cutting accuracy is astounding. What's even more shocking in many places there are pre-drilled holes, which in ancient times men could just not do
You can hypothesize that one day someone could use technology such as stone concrete. This would be much easier, but the castings leaves marks which are not to be found in this examples. Therefore, it is more likely that there was some technology used allowing precision cutting.  Still remains problem of transportation of heavy blocks which in many cases, like e.g. in Peru Saxywoman had to be transported 5 miles from the closest quarry.

This brings us to the next hypothesis as to how those monumental structures were built. There are theories that the stone blocks were moved by sound. You can google Dr. Jarl, "Tibetan levitation" .
Here below you can see scientific proof that spherical objects are kept in the air and moved in any direction in controlled way using sound waves.

 From Dr Deek
This is an acoustic levitation chamber I designed and built in 1987 as a micro-gravity experiment for NASA related subject matter.
The 12 inch cubed plexiglas Helmholtz Resonant Cavity has 3 speakers attached to the cube by aluminium acoustic waveguides.
By applying a continuous resonant(600Hertz) sound wave, and by adjusting the amplitude and phase relationship amongst the 3 speakers; I was able to control levitation and movement in all 3 (x,y,z) axis of the ambient space.
This research was used to show the effects of micro-gravity conditions that exist in the space shuttle environment in orbit, but done here on Earth in a lab.
More on that here. 

How Acoustic Levitation Works

How about levitation by monks? See video below.

Could be that those technologies were used to build heavy ancient structures, where power of mind and knowledge of physics which is still escaping today's scientist was at work?
