La mente inmortal
La ciencia y la continuidad de la conciencia más allá del cerebro
Spanish Paperback ISBN: 1620555417
Pruebas científicas de la presencia continua de la conciencia, aunque no esté vinculada con un organismo vivo • Examina los descubrimientos acerca de la supervivencia de la conciencia más allá de la vida, incluidas las experiencias cercanas a la muerte, la comunicación después de la muerte y la reencarnación • Explica cómo ello se correlaciona con exactitud con novedosas teorías físicas sobre las supercuerdas, los campos de información y las matrices energéticas • Revela que la conciencia se manifiesta en los seres vivos para continuar su evolución Laszlo y Peake plantean que la conciencia está presente ininterrumpidamente en el cosmos y puede existir sin estar vinculada con un organismo vivo. Entre las pruebas científicas en que se basa ese punto de vista figuran las experiencias cercanas a la muerte, la comunicación después de la muerte y la información neurosensorial recibida en estados alterados. Dicha persistencia de la conciencia se correlaciona con exactitud con los últimos adelantos de la Física, que postula que las cosas en nuestro plano espacio-temporal no son intrínsecamente reales sino manifestaciones de una dimensión velada en la que existen en forma de supercuerdas, campos de información y matrices energéticas.

Journeys in the Land of Illumination
1st Edition Paperback ISBN: 1594774498
"A detailed account of the transformation of consciousness and discovery of life's purpose brought on by peyote. Shows how peyote and other visionary plants do not distort reality but gloriously unveil it, pulling the mind out of its cosmic slumber and revealing our unity with all life. Explains the necessity when working with peyote to remain the master of one's mind and consciously work on oneself. Examines how modern society's revulsion to sacramental plants and other consciousness expanders is deeplyrooted in Western philosophy. Charles Duits was caught in the grip of a dead-end existential and spiritual crisis. At the urging of one of his oldest friends, he takes peyote "like a man committing suicide," launching him on a visionary journey of philosophical examination and spiritual revelation. In this little-known classic of drug literature, we find a detailed account of the radical alteration of consciousness and discovery of life's purpose brought on by the Mexican cactus known as peyote. Consuming peyote more than 200 times, Duits lucidly describes the transformation of reality he experienced as well as the necessity to consciously work on oneself and remain the master of one's mind in order to avoid getting carried away by hallucinations. The author examines how modern society's revulsion to sacramental plants and other consciousness expanders is deeply rooted in Western philosophy's embrace of reason and materialism at the expense of inner knowledge. He explains how sacramental plants do not distort reality as many fearfully believe but gloriously unveil it, pulling the mind out of its cosmic slumber and revealing a world that is finally real and full of meaning. Poetic yet precise, Duits's descriptions of his peyote experiences offer a glimpse in to the beautiful divine reality of which we are all a part, yet over which the structures of society cast a veil. This guide to "sailing the inner sea" reveals that the answers to the meaning of life lie not in material pursuits but in experiencing the richness and unity of the world in front of us"--Provided by publisher.

Agency And Consciousness In Discourse
Self-Other Dynamics As A Complex System
Hardcover ISBN: 0826474268
Continuing the discussion he began in his 2004 Brain, Mind, and the Signifying Boyd, Thibault (linguistics and media communication, Agder U. College, Norway) explores how agency and consciousness are created and enacted in and through transactions between self and other. Such transactions are the central notion in the development of an adequate explanation of both agency and consciousness, he argues, and it is necessary to reconnect body-brain processes and interactions to the social and discursive practices that directly act upon and affect our body-brain systems in meaning-making activity. A central theme is how new emergent levels of organization come into existence between already existing scalar levels at the same time that existing levels are reorganized by the emergence of the new levels.
