    Dr. Robert Davis, What Peak Experiences Reveal About Consciousness |419|

    And all the evidence for measles vaccination is also pseduo-science sponsored by big pharma right? In reality it cases severe autism, the ‘real’ evidence really favors that hypothesis. And E.T. is hidden in Area 51, and everybody claiming everything different is just a bunch of socialists?

    Mod+ Daryl Bem online experiment

    I got 47% English is not my native language so perhaps that should disqualify.

    Do you think Parnia had a hit in AWARE 2, or not?

    Surveys are a poor source of primary information. I prefer to set the bar just a little higher. There's also surveys showing people has met Elvis after he died etc.

    Do you think Parnia had a hit in AWARE 2, or not?

    It wasn't meant as a skeptic argument. High quality studies like the 2001 Lancet study also only found a very low percentage of OBEs among an already low number of NDEs. It just happens to be a very uncommen phenomena which makes it hard to study it in a controlled ssetting. I agree. I also...

    Do you think Parnia had a hit in AWARE 2, or not?

    He has attempted to get a hit in various studies for 15 years now. Don't get your hopes too high. Think they got something like 2 OBE's in the first AWARE study after 5 years. These things rarely happens in the real world outside new age circles. With that said - I believe Parnia thinks they...

    New Nature study on enhanced consciousness

    And I still think the conclusions Bernado does are completely unjustified at this point.

    New Nature study on enhanced consciousness

    I think Max_B summarizes the discussion better than I can do above so I will leave it at that. I do of course get your point that the fMRI scan and the signal diversity is two different measurements of neural activity. Overall I think the weakest point in all these studies is that you can...

    New Nature study on enhanced consciousness

    I don't think they are using PCI as you are reffering to. What they measure is increased entropy in the neural signal measured with the MEG scan. It does in no way support the thesis about 'dampen' the brain. When it comes to blood flow they explicitly write:

    Wauv, you guys knows a lot about drugs that are highly illegally where I come from.

    New Nature study on enhanced consciousness

    ? - you are pointing to a a 2013 study. The OP has linked to a just published 2017 study in Nature that uses a MEG scan to measure what goes on in the brain. Pretty sure the study Bernado points to used fMRi - but even though these two scans of brain activity isn't directly comparable I think...

    New Nature study on enhanced consciousness

    Interesting - this study directly contradicts a cornerstone of Bernado Kastrup's recent arguments. http://www.bernardokastrup.com/2011/11/consciousness-and-memory.html I wonder if the study he is referring to was ever published.

    OBEs, real and hallucinations

    Interesting - which paper authors are you reffering to? In this analysis of the case by Michael Prescott http://michaelprescott.typepad.com/michael_prescotts_blog/2015/09/the-curious-case-of-miss-zee.html he writes:

    OBEs, real and hallucinations

    There nothing to be unnerved about. It's so important to make conclusions based on the data and not try to massage the data to fit our biases. If OBE's are all hallucinatory so be it. try to be objective when assesing your experience. I understand we all want the afterlife to be true on the...
