You just will not give up your pseudo-Scientology nonsense will you no matter how much scientific evidence to the contrary to your belief.

You are a fundamentalist who believes you are right and everyone else on earth is wrong !

Maybe your mind is so fogged up with pot that you are unable to accept the truth and think like a logical person.

My advice give up the grass and get a life!

Your hate of nonconformity is perhaps the truth you ignore in promoting the pharmaceutical mafia
pseudoscience...

Myths about cannabis have nothing to do with its ability to enhance introspection!

I'm convinced the truth is available by opening your mind to thoses who thinks differently than yourself...

I hope you enjoy your stay on scientific forums...

Keep on smoking!

What do we know about the link between cannabis and psychosis?

In the last few years there have been an increasing number of studies examining the relationship between cannabis and psychosis. This has captured not only the attention of the research community but also the popular media and public in general. Although it is well known that using cannabis can induce temporary psychotic/hallucinatory symptoms this accumulating body of evidence has suggested that there is an association between some youth who use cannabis regularly and enduring psychosis. Several recent studies suggest that frequent cannabis use during adolescence is associated with a clinically """significant increased risk of developing schizophrenia and other mental illnesses which feature psychosis.""

Some of the headlines about these studies in the media may be leading the everyday reader to believe that there is a ""direct casual relationship between marijuana and psychosis"", i.e. that the"" average person who smokes some pot may become psychotic"". Though this definitely makes for a gripping news story and there are some studies that suggest this causal link, according to the abundance of scientific literature and various other forms of information (e.g. web and print-based resources, anecdotal evidence, documentaries evidence) the nature of the link between the two seems to be more complicated than this. Before we take a closer look at this link, let's first review the basic facts about psychosis and cannabis.

Thats a great example of how the pharmaceutical industry is a proponent of anti-cannabis laws. Cannabis doesn't cause schizophrenia/psychosis. This is a myth... Having myself experimented with cannabis for long enough, I can tell you that schizophrenia is a fictious disorder and theres no causal link between cannabis and "schizophrenia".

"In summary, we conclude that cannabis does not cause psychosis by itself. In genetically vulnerable individuals, while cannabis may modify the illness onset, severity and outcome, there is no evidence from this study that it can cause the psychosis."   

http://www.leafscience.com/2013/12/08/marijuana-cause-schizophrenia-harvard-study-finds/

The whole point in all the pseudoscientific voodoo of psychiatry is this: Psychiatric drugs does impair cognitive processes and harm the brain. By consenting to psychiatric treatments, you lose the ownership of your body and mind. For me, cannabis smoking is a way to reclaim the ownership of my consciousness.

You are proof that it is not a myth because you are obviously delusional due to your untreated schizophrenia, my advice is for you to make an appointment with a good physiatrist  to bring you back into reality.

And distance yourself from the madness of Scientology.

Or keep on smoking the poison!

LOL. The difference between me and you is that you're consenting to your psychiatric treatment while I don't. Your "brilliant madness" is nothing but a figment of your imagination; In contrast, my forced treatment is involuntary and based on my chronic consumption of cannabis, that is all. Cannabis is not really socially acceptable because it's medical values are in direct opposition to psychiatric drugs. You should educate yourself on the medical benefits of cannabis before unleashing your hate on natural medicine used since 2500 b.c.

PS: I have actually a very good "physician"... He sells me his product whenever I feel down or naive about why we exists! In reality life is good and marijuana is a blessing we cultivate for its abilities to tamper our ignorance. I don't pretend I have the absolute truth on everything, but feeling that introspection is a skill which requires training. Pot is not for everyone; It is made for thoses who seeks careful examination of their inner consciousness in order to gain higher learning about the chaotic world we live in.

Leave it at that keep in smoking your weed and give up preaching Scientology garbage You are now on my ignore list, in fact, you are the only one on it because you have earned it by your illegal drug postering.

One of the hazards of introspection type research, are the more advanced data inductions; way beyond dreams, which are the most interesting to study through introspection, have a social taboo. If you look at schizophrenia, unconscious inductions, separate from the conscious mind and ego, are overlapping and becoming more dominant. This is a stage of introspection research when personality firmware become active so they can be observed in action.

These firmware and/or subroutines are traditionally observed from the outside using standard science practices; from output affects. However, from the POV of introspection research, there are additional dimensions of data that can be observed from the inside, you just can't see from the outside. However, the idea of wanting to induce schizophrenia in the scientist, so he can collect this extra dimensions of data, is scary and unsettling.  Introspection research may not be for everyone. It is more for those with a certain temperament and daredevil spirit. Introspection will see other data allowing different theories. Tkadm30 may well have generated extra internal data which makes the status quo seem incomplete. But unless one goes inside to see for yourself, one may well to rely on the prestige of external science as the final say. 

As far as marijuana type inductions, this may help one trigger certain types of internal data; experiments. But chronic use can weaken the scientist's ability to separate himself, with the same level of internally objectivity, that external science uses, externally. Objectivity and data analysis is a key component that makes it science. One might be able to generate lots of data, but if you don't do anything with the data, you are only an experiment. Introspection research is both data generation and data analysis.

A good place to learn how to use the data is study collective human symbolism, such as in the collective works of Carl Jung. He calls the personality firmware the archetypes of the collective unconscious. His collective works contain a huge library of collective human symbolism, from which you can analyze data. It can get very complicated, which is why you need clear periods to help the scientist,  within, focus.

His most advanced book, which is called Mysterium Conjunctions or the mystical union, is about synthesis symbols or symbols of integration. These can be used to reintegrate the personality; experiment, without  the need of drugs. The introspection scientists does this from the inside and does not need props. This is an extremely intense aspect of introspection research. Symbols are the 3-D language which the unconscious mind uses and which the firmware understand.

When I went through this phase of introspection research, I had to invent a tool to help me. It is called thought dimensional theory, which organizes brain generated information from 0-D to 4-D thought, wth the limits of 0-D and 4-D included for completeness. What I found are the firmware are spread out into three zones within that range. If you know any of the three zones, some of which are easier to observe, you know the other two. It made it easier for me to keep my bearings. It was based on many years of previous observational data. This is getting long. Maybe I will develop the basics of thought dimensional theory in another post.

"Augmented human sensory perception" is the title of a paper detailing my research into the human psyche?

I have  done research into human sensory perception, some of which involves altered states of consciousness. Which include introspection as one of its facets of the human psyche.

In it,  I explored the possibility of a universal superconsciousness that pervades all reality, which suggests that all conscious beings are interconnected causing an effect which affected all other sentient minds,  in some a yet unknown way.

Very good post puppypower, as usual. I just would like to emphase that "schizophrenia" is not internally objective
via introspection. Peoples will label someone a "schizophreniac" just because of its personality and their inner perception of nonconformity. However, I agree that thinking outside the box is sometimes scary and unrational to others. Thus I believe introspection is a tool to explore the unconscious mind through imagination and creativity. I'm convinced someone is not a "schizophreniac" simply because he believes in the power of imagination to discover and examine science based on its conscious experience.

Schizophrenia is human nature. When someone think outside the box, peoples cannot be aware of the objectivity of how the mind is working. Conscious experience is subjective but with introspection it is possible I think to potentiate metacognitive skills.

The superconsciousness that you sense is actually inside you and can be investigated with introspection. If you live only by an external perception extroverted reality, the inner self will project like a movie overlay to make content conscious, where one expects to find it. It is better you see it as an overlay than not at all.

We have two sides of the brain. Although both sides work at the same time, we are usually conscious of one side at a time, unless you make an effort through introspection. The unconscious side sees the same thing but through the prism of instinct, which connects us and it to nature and therefore reality.

For example, if you went to another country, say Japan and when to a baseball game, you may notice, initially how everyone seems to have common characteristic. This is from the right brain; It creates a 3-D perception; unifies lot of data. The left brain is more differential and will notice differences. Both work together but one may not be conscious of both at the same time. Often the missing one is sensed to be there but projected outward, where western thinking believes all good can be found.

To help this discussion, I am going to develop my thought dimensionality theory. It will bring this all together in a very compact and powerful tool for investigation.

Thought Dimensionality Theory

In thought dimensionality theory (TDT), geometrical analogies are used to express different types of thought and perception. I discovered that these math plotting analogies gave me an easy way to plot consciousness data so it was easy to explain, remember and correlate while in the field.

Let me just dive into it!

There are three basic levels of thought 1-D, 2-D and 3-D. The 1-D thoughts are analogous to a line; linear. These are thoughts with a one to one correspondence; x=k. For example, the letters of any alphabet are 1-D, in that they always means the same thing. Dogma tries to be 1-D since it is not allowed to change, at risk of censor or death. Even though 1-D is simple, it is quite important to all thought, since it represents the foundation and the hard data that we all agree upon.

The next level is 2-D thought. In terms of geometry this is a plane, with an x-axis and y-axis. Logic is an example of 2-D thought, which labels the two axis x=cause and y=affect. Logical thinking follows a curve that is plotted on the 2-D plane, between these two axis. The two axis of 2-D thought can also be good and evil, male and female, right and wrong, black and white, liberal and conservative, etc,. Once the axis are set, we then go through a process similar to reason, drawing curves on the plane between these axis.

Although logic is the most advanced use of 2-D thinking, other axis labels, like polarizations; good and evil, can also be used to process data in 2-D. The difference between logic and the other types of polarizations, has more to do with the types of curves we draw on the 2-D plane. I will get into this later, after I develop the basics.

The next level of thought is 3-D thoughts. Like in math, 3-D has three axis, x, y, z and can seen as a ball or cube. Symbolism, which is the language of the unconscious mind is 3-D. It has an extra z-axis which one senses through intuition. It is not rational or 2-D due to the extra z-axis.

For example, the statue of liberty is both a sign and a symbol. As a sign, it is 1-D thought. It is a very specific statue in New York City with a very specific history; one to one correspondence. As a symbol it represents liberty and freedom, which are both nebulous concepts and not do easy to pin down, since it also contains an intuitive component, open axis. Books have been written about liberty using that z-axis.

Dogma, which attempt to portray itself as 1-D; linear truth that never changes, does so because it also unconsciously assumes the truth is 3-D; sign and symbol. For example, God is resented as Allah, Buddha and Jesus; 1-D, while also being defined as infinite in possibilities; 3-D.

In physics E=MC2, defines a very specific connection between matter and energy; 1-D, yet its application scope has no bounds; 3-D. The two sides of the brain will blend the two, with the 1-D dogma more connected to the conscious mind and 3-D the unconscious mind. It 3-D nature, often unconscious, gives its a compelling asymptote effect; eternal feeling, due to the z-axis.

E=MC2 is also unique because it is 1-D; dogma, 2-D logical math, 3-D universal. Humans can connect to E=MC2, at any of its levels, with the other two active, at some unconscious level. We all meet our minds in the blend no matter where we begin. This is useful for identifying firmware. If one is in a strong induction, losing objectivity, you don't need to analyze a complex abstraction in 3-D, but just look for a simple 1-D sign, that is part of its integration. Each firmware has its own 1-D tell sign.

I will pause here. Next time I will explain the dimensional ranges between from 0-D to 1-D; 1.5-D, 1-D to 2-D; 2.5-D, 3-d to 4-D; 3.5-D.

While I agree that cannabis likely has little causal impact on schizophrenia disorders, it is foolish to ignore the reality of these disorders.
Yes, heavy cannabis use appears to be associated with some disorders, but as I understand it, those sufferers often show a predisposition to the disorder (genetic, e.g. familial, or long-term behavioural predictors).

It's not always clear in which direction the correlation is causal (if indeed it is) - are such personality types more likely to self-medicate with cannabis? does cannabis trigger psychosis in the predisposed? can cannabis cause psychosis? or is it some combination of the above?

The other confounding factor is the type and strength of cannabis involved. In the 1960's and '70's, a wide variety of cannabis was imported from Asia and India, mainly as varieties of hash, including oil. Herbal cannabis was a far lower percentage of the market than it is today. All these forms were rich in cannabinoids and relatively lower in THC than many modern strains. Cultivation of herbal cannabis and breeding programmes to increase the strength of the product have markedly reduced the percentage of cannabinoids in favour of extremely high THC levels in varieties like Skunk.

Cannabinoids have been shown to have protective effects against THC-related psychosis, and it may be the huge reduction in cannabinoids in 'super-strength' varieties that is behind the apparent rise in diagnoses - I say apparent rise, because it's possible that some of this reported increase may be due to greater diagnosis with cannabis posited as contributory, and some may simply be due to wider reporting via the internet (social media, etc).

What is clear is that, for the vast majority of cannabis users, there are no significant health effects of long-term regular use other than those attributable to the unfortunate habit of mixing it with tobacco.

I'm sorry that I did not notice before the you got sucked in by the Scientology cult. I am sorry for you and I hope you make it ok.

LOL. Could you please enlighten us why you think I'm a scientologist? I'm fascinated by how you connect "Scientology" to introspection in general.

Is cognitive introspection a form of scientific meditation ? Can THC-mediated introspection be used to meditate about metacognitive subjects not accessible without chemical activation of CB1 receptors? I believe cognitive introspection is a form of scientific method to gain access to higher functions of consciousness, including imagination and critical thinking.

What is meditation exactly?

I believe endocannabinoid synthesis can trigger meditation and cognitive introspection
via intracellular CB1 receptor activation.

Higher levels of consciousness exists and depends on neuronal phase coherence
to hypercompute reality.
