Equilibrium and bliss
    #3555490 - 12/29/04 02:31 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

    So if one may spontaneoulsy find god (born agains, buddhist enlightenment, gnostics) through circumstances coming together.  And, generally, one may find in psychedelics a sense of unity, oneness, etc.  Why isn't bliss just a natural state of being?  Why isn't equilibrium of bliss and commonaity a baseline for the universe? 
    Hanky just posted in OTD about DMT and wrote that we're here as entities as it amuses us.  Well. 
      I suppose what I'm asking is, why devolve down into this state?  Just to amuse yourself like Zeus fucking women to dabble in procreation for the hell of it?  And why is our god circuit lit up by psychedelics/spontaneous experiences in order to commune with a "higher" plane? 
    Dunno.  I was just having a smoke and thought about this on a full moon.  Comments welcomed.  :stoned:

Natural selection is a cold, unfeeling process that, in molding us, didn't take spiritual angst into account.
