Altered Perception
« on: 09/06/2006 22:32:27 »
A very long while back I experienced an altered state of perception where my mind didnt register colour information but but was fully spatialy aware of the universe as being made up of some kind of fabric of wave energy.As I sat there listening to music ,Its simple wave-forms hitting my eardum and sending further impulses to my brain by way of yet more waves, then my brain, in turn translating and storing this information in yet more of the same, I 'realised' the universe as a whole and not a segmented entity. Not being much of a science type you'll have to excuse my ignorance but was this just an hallucination of does any of my experience have some kind of scientific meaning to it. I also 'realised' every human being (indeed every object / atom / molecule .. . ) has a relationship and therefore an effect on everything else in the universe ,a kind of butterfly effect where EVERYTHING is made of butterflys (yes voids and dark matter also)but is the the bfe's point anyway, I digress. What you experience makes your personality, therefore your choices ,therefore not really any free will. I realise people will think im a complete idiot for bothering to post this but what the hay.

do you also hear voices from different galaxies, i have heard and seen spaceships above me in the wilderness, i could only see them when i let the brain go to work and not let interference in from carnal or worldly activities

This happens to me occasionally, i sort of become aware of existence. I notice that i am on a massive planet, i notice that i am miniscule compared to it. I can see everything as it happens on the whole planet. I gain comprehension of the universe. Often time, these brief periods of enlightenment are followed by a strong desire to create and to think. Its like my inner genious gets awoken...i dont know, it seems similar to what this fellow described.

Are you 'creative', RW? A painter? Writer? You describe the feeling well.

This wasnt merely the realisation that i am a tiny being existing on a small planet BUT the fact that i am part of the very fabric of the universe, a cyclic tapestry of wave energy.

I suggest you pursue some research around Zen philosophy or Buddhist teachings if you want to keep what your have found. You are not alone in this type experience.    

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
