    By the way, I love this thread. Let's put the shaman back into shaman-australis. I'll be posting my solstice activities here soon.

    "Shamanic Science" subforum drafts.

    Shamanism is a method of exploring consciousness, which is multidimensional. Reductive science can explain and interpret "reality" up to a fourth dimension, but even then it struggles. Viewing from a dimension you are enmeshed in poses problems as you can't take an outside or overall view. Shamanism is the exploration of dimensions higher than the fourth, which must be internal. The apparent law is that each successive dimension is perpendicular to the previous. Our language fails at describing these experiences as it is part of the physical dimensions. I'm not sure there is a way around this problem.
  4. I try not to live in fear, but I also like to keep a low profile.

    Introducing: "SAINT PAUL"

    You forgot the part where noobie made one of the guests a soothing cup of tea after the guest fell out of his chair, having been bewitched by three toots of a magical steamwhistle! That cup renewed his spirits majestically!
  6. Horus, I don't share your optimism when I envisage this scenario unfortunately. Did Dr Andrew Katelaris get a fair hearing?
  7. Torsten has pointed out many times that it is unlikely to make a difference what state of preparation a substance is in for the purpose of prosecution. If the law thinks your intent is consumption, it's much of a muchness. Probably easier to prove a case with dried chips, but who'd want to test the water?
  8. Never underestimate the power of knee jerk reaction public outrage.. And if statistics matter so much to the police, why are statistically safe substances like cannabis illegal while statistically unsafe ones like alcohol remain legal?
  9. Yep. Last thing we need is some current affair type making a big outrage story from this king of thing. Facebook is already starting to disallow sales of plants with certain words in the listings and PayPal has refused payments to be processed too.

    any active salvias besides sally d

    Smoking half a leaf of divinorum is unlikely to produce effects either, yet it is most definitely active. The first time I tried divinorum it was very underwhelming. Perhaps there are compounds in other salvias that are much less heat stable, maybe even orally active.

    looking for sub prints (for microscopy purposes)

    I'll try to get a bunch of prints for you all, if I can beat the snails and slugs...

    This section needs a "show wild finds" thread

    Ol' spoogie knows how to look after his local.
  14. I have 6 large plants free to anyone who can pickup from Sydney (royal national park area). Too large to post. They are bare rooted so the sooner the better. Mixed blue/white flowers.
  15. As per the heading, I'm looking for seeds of these varieties to trade. Pm me if you gots ems.

    Happy 420 !!! thread

    Apparently Neville has spent considerable time in oz in recent years
  18. Agreed, we are talking conceptually. And also agreed, there is no absolute, everything is subjective. But I don't need to understand the totality. If I possess consciousness, then it is possible.
  19. OK. What I'm trying to say is I think it is necessary for consciousness to be a universal and underlying property of this universe or how else could it be possible for us to experience consciousness at all? It would violate the laws of the universe. Wouldn't it?
  20. We are the cosmos trying to experience and understand itself, in our variety. I'm wondering, does my leg have consciousness? Or only my brain? Or does my brain actually seat my consciousness at all. "I" feel like I'm centred in my skull mostly. Need to think about this more...
  21. I think about this a lot, but I'm going to struggle to put my thoughts in order. Do objects we consider inanimate exist in a timescale that is incomprehensible to us, giving us this impression? How can we imagine particles being conscious? Or galaxies? In the same way, how can a bacterium comprehend our consciousness? It seems there is collective consciousness at many levels. After all, we are a collection of individual cells. Are we all mere particles in some greater organism? Does an individual cell possess any awareness? All I have is questions, and poorly formulated ones at that. There seems to be validity in the saying "as above, so below". Galaxies are similar to atoms in some way. Why would consciousness not follow these rules?
