The ultimate meaning of our being can only be fulfilled in the paradoxical leap beyond the tragic-demonic frustration. It is a leap from our side, but it is the self-surrendering presence of the Ground of Being from the other side.

not william james per say, but I could talk a bit about nitrious if you wanted? :wink: :P


--------------------
No one knows the worth of innocence till he knows it is gone forever, and that money can't buy it back. Not the saint, but the sinner that repenteth, is he to whom the full length and breadth, and height and depth, of life's meaning is revealed. Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.

He wrote alot of books about religion and spiritually based mainly on his experiments with nitrous oxide. They're kind of like Joyce's The Varities of Religious Experience. Dig through the links at Erowid and you might be able to find some of his works. (Shaffer drug library maybe?)

People think that if you just say the word "hallucinations" it explains everything you want it to explain and eventually whatever it is you can't explain will just go away.It's just a word,it doesn't explain anything...

I was just reading the experiences in his "The Varieties of Religious Experiences" concerning N02. Really hit home with the cosmic consciousness and feelings of infinity.

Lol! Sorry for going off-topic...but the title is too much! :smile:

The house I live in, we got from the family of an old dude who lived here before us. He died of a heart attack while shoveling the driveway a few winters ago (we still have the shovel!).

His name....

WILLIAM JAMES!

why would you segregate yourself from the rest of the world? how do you know that these writers are "enlightened?" for all you know they are just spewing forth what another is whispering in their ear....

you're taking an elitist attitude which saddens me. "I don't understand yet," when in actuality it seems that it will take you those 9 years just to understand....

now I see, you havent opened your third eye yet....dont fret child, the universe will lift you up out of your blindness soon enough. I suggest you get yourself some crystals and rub them on your mind-chakra, that would be a good first step towards enlightenment.
