Re: The Science and Theory of Addiction
Hi Phat. I'm not surprised u began such a thread I always saw u as the wisest and most open person in here.
How have u been anyway? Thought I'd just say hi.
Thought ud be interested to here I'm no longer agnostic.
I'm a theist now I guess but without the bible though I still adhere to its morals.
It's complicated. LoL
In tÃ£o they say that God is undefinable which is what I kinda think.
I don't know about bible stories and their literal applications.
I just feel there is a greater power.
Psychedelic drugs like DMT, shooms and Ketamine gives a person much to think about if they have enough of it to break into this other dimension. Quite easy to blow off as "drugs" and dismiss these vision's to those who haven't experienced it.
But drug addiction is very much like mental illness. Our knowledge is so limited. I see drugs on campus daily and try my best to stay away.
I have a sweet spot for these mind expanding psychedelics that take u to places your mind cannot possibly conceive. Then make us return like Greek philosophers.
DMT and Kay has been used on mentally ill patients interestingly. Also interesting to look at what Portugal did in their radical approach to drug addiction.
Actually I'm a lot like Jordan Peterson now.
A large umbrella on the subject of God and morals as not to fall into dogma. I can see how Sam Harris and some others find him frustrating cos his illmatic. Not fixed. Especially seeing Sam is up for a fair discussion.
I'm still at school. Love physics as applied on earth. Isaac Newton number 1 genius man forever in my book. Da Vinci and Tesla make up my top 3. Karl Popper i still love with his no bullshit approach. Einstein would be 5th.
Astrophysics I'm afraid is lost in space but and has regressed in to the same kind of story telling rhetoric as other theoretical sciences have with this multiverse theory or hypothesis taken out of Darwinism.
So ye even less respect for the theoretic sciences I have now. They don't represent the applied sciences I work in. We, along with other practical branches in science, including Biology are moving to branch away from theoretical science at my school.
We don't want to be associated with such bs artists.
If u can replicate the universe in a jar then uv got something. If u can create life from nothing then uv got something. Till then just keep spinning.
I still love thinking about philosophy and religion but and it's visible impact on society.
Anyway. Plenty there for the atheists to cry about still... lol
Here is a question. Why do Christians pray to humans like St Peter and the Virgin Mary when it's defying the first 2 commandments.
And wassup with Mary? Won't love her husband and won't allow her husband to love her while he works and supports for her and this child that isn't his. It actually goes against the Christian concept of a family for anyone to remain a virgin. She is supposed to submit to her husband the bible says. True?
Anyway Phat man keep on punching.
