Hi Mark
Let me know what you think of the following,
will you?
A spirit molecule sounds interesting and some doubts may be addressed as well.
(I like to have doubts about my own thoughts
as well.)
If this molecule works the same way in intelligent beings from other planets whose
physiology is different from ours, then its
importance seems to grow.
Yet it seems probable that is function is
dependent on the chemical pathways which
our brains and glands employ to get their normal work done -- pathways which were apparently created over a long period of time.
The function of such drugs seems to be one that
can be performed by realizing that function exists. That function seems to be:
To override and disable the brain's usual homeostasis and,
with what's left running, to provide an unusual
experience with personally-recognized inputs and personal data bases which are always available to be experienced. Once one knows they're available to be experienced, one doesn't need the "spirit molecule" but only to learn how to manage one's inner resources.
End of part onen (part two has not yet been written)
