As usual the warnings about psychedelics apply especially if one is trying to acquire them.

Psychedelics and Meditation: Everything Is Consciousness

Alan J. Steinberg M.D.


Quote:
  • Research into psychedelics and meditation, the best tools we have to understand consciousness, suggests that everything is consciousness.

  • Psychedelics and meditation help one's consciousness to "turn around" and experience itself, resulting in the mystical experience.

  • The mystical experience is knowing your self, which is commonly reported as the experience of becoming one with all that exists.

Quote:If science is telling us that everything is consciousness then it would make sense to review the research on consciousness to see if there is evidence corroborating that conclusion. What are the most powerful tools we have to explore consciousness? Arguably, they are psychedelics and meditation.

Quote:For about 100 years, science has been moving toward the conclusion that everything in our universe is made of consciousness. What is consciousness? One of the first things we do if we want to understand something is to examine it with our five senses. How can we examine consciousness with our senses? Psychedelics and meditation may be the two best ways to facilitate the sensory examination of consciousness. The research concerning those who have done so suggests that they have found that their consciousness is part of everything in the universe and that everything is consciousness. Subjective experience, in this case, is in harmony with objective science.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'

- Bertrand Russell
