before i knew anything about eastern philosophies, i experienced a satori-like experience on shrooms....many of us have...it changed me for life. what happens in ones brain that causes this? could it be caused by anyother way?

Not sure if there's another way, I'm trying orgiastic rituals

I'm diligent in my practice...

There is a book about these brain changes, "Zen and the Brain" by James H. Austin. I haven't gotten around to ordering it yet, but I think I will. It's got lots of good reviews. Has anyone here read it?

a lot of interesting work is being done with meditation
and MRI's lately, some of it is very impressive indeed

yeah..i looked at it at barnes n noble...its a big book. it seemed interesting. off topic, i think some animal activists got on his case for testing on them (the animals, not the activists).
