I'm not lost, and I'm not blaming anything on you.
A place to discuss health and fitness, healthy diets. A fit body makes for a fit mind.
I'm still not clear how your approach to insight is substantially different from the Buddhist one. Looking at experience is certainly one way of describing satipatthana practice, for example.Saengnapha wrote: ↑Tue Jul 17, 2018 3:27 pmI'm not trying to be rude or clever when I say most of the people that post here don't practice this way and are not really interested or 'ready' for insight. Insight is radical not therapeutic.
Anyway, this is really another discussion, so
I'll post my comment above on one of your UG threads, maybe you could respond to it there?
Buddha save me from new-agers!
I like to think I look great in Hugo Boss, but I don't see how any of the other defining characteristics apply to me. I'll PM you about the wisdom of posts like this and a couple of others you have made.
In evolutionary terms, right-wing authoritarianism generally seems to be the more advantageous outlook on life to have.
Sensory deprivation or perceptual isolation is the deliberate reduction or removal of stimuli from one or more of the senses. Simple devices such as blindfolds or hoods and earmuffs can cut off sight and hearing, while more complex devices can also cut off the sense of smell, touch, taste, thermoception (heat-sense), and 'gravity'. Sensory deprivation has been used in various alternative medicines and in psychological experiments (e.g. with an isolation tank).
Short-term sessions of sensory deprivation are described as relaxing and conducive to meditation; however, extended or forced sensory deprivation can result in extreme anxiety, hallucinations, bizarre thoughts, temporarily senseless, and depression.
A related phenomenon is perceptual deprivation, also called the Ganzfeld effect. In this case a constant uniform stimulus is used instead of attempting to remove the stimuli; this leads to effects which have similarities to sensory deprivation.
