"Light pours over me as I run for cover, but I was already there".
(-Ministry "Dream Song").

DMT, peneal gland, biological basis for certain components of "spiritual" experiences, frontal lobe seizures and the "sense of detachment from/fusion with the world", classically argued over in discussion of mysticism, neuroscience and phenomenology...all within the easily-forgotten but utter confusion context of what constitutes "the world" of human grasp before the 'anomalous' experience (which may be so only for the last millimeter on the meter stick of our genus' history), which is then to be challenged/expanded, etc ...i.e., the loci of phenomena that constitute reality, human personhood - as well as their doxastic practices and their perceptions), and what they are rendered (or render themselves, depending), capable of perceiving. Maybe more later; in Monsey, thinks to do.
