August 21, at 3: Wow, 11 out of 14 is a scary stat — i am a man and i have been tortured the last year by my wife, who after researching it on the internet has determined that for the last 20 years i have been a passive aggressive narcissist high conflict person — i looked at gas lighting which as been used to describe be between her family members — our children where witnessing physical and emotional domestic abuse against me, and then my wife went from her long term Psychiatrist to a new one, and also started seeing a number of new doctors, and created a self-supporting system of people supporting her abuse claims, new psychiatrist talks to ER doc about her PTSD she went to 3 different ER rooms across a mile diameter area. I had been shamed by her and her family in when she came at me with scissors, and was arrested for the 3rd time in 20 years. Well my resistance to pressing charges stuck and the case was not charged by the DA — however the number of incidents continued to escalate — I finally, not knowing even what I was doing sought a TRO for Domestic violence and with a mountain of support was immediately granted everything I asked for — Every single check box.
Posted on April 19, by Scott Alexander That story about the blockchain-based dating site gets better: For example, from the MCTB review: If you really, really examine your phenomenological experience, you realize all sorts of surprising things…one early insight is a perception of your mental awareness of a phenomenon as separate from your perception of that phenomenon.

The real process of meditation is paying real close attention to what is happening around you without passing it to the mind immediately for analysis…the mind becomes perceived to be another sense.
You see, you listen, you hear, you smell, you think. From the MCTB review: The main point of [mindfulness] meditation is to improve your concentration ability so you can direct it to ordinary experience.
Become so good at concentrating that you can attain various jhanas — but then, instead of focusing on infinite bliss or whatever other cool things you can do with your new talent, look at a wall or listen to the breeze or just try to understand the experience of existing in time.
Building the instrumentation to keep your consciousness stable enough to put the attention on the thing, is about three or four years work. It takes years to grind a perfectly smooth reflector. Then you silver coat it.
Then you point it at the sky and now you can see the moons of Jupiter. It takes you years to design the microscope, you look into the water, now you can see the microbes and you just discovered germ theory.
Building the instrumentation takes time.
Years and years and years because you need long periods — 35, 40 seconds minimally — when there are no thoughts in the mind to be able to begin to turn the awareness onto itself. So lengthening the gap between thoughts means lowering the mental background noise. There are lots of these matches.
The weird thing is — everyone who opens up the big door and looks out into the magical Universe where all the cosmic shit lives, sees something different. The purpose of religions is to enforce conformity on the mythology that floods your brain once you open up the cosmic forces.
If you are a strict moslem and you experience your enlightenment in a moslem context, the mystical model of the world that gets slammed into your head when you finally look at the Universe in that way, will be in conformity with the dominant culture around you at the time.
This is part of the reason that everything in Western culture went nuts when they discovered LSD, because you had all these people experiencing enlightenment outside of the conformity of the church.
So rather than becoming Saint Ignatius of Loyola, you wound up as acid-crazed Bill. My name is Ken Wilbur. Where the hell did that come from? He made it up and then told you it was cosmic law. Just like all the others did.
This is how it really works. Later in the session, a questioner asked: You talked about some beautiful abstractions. Every individual who goes up there sees the same shit, more or less.
And then you come back down and try and tell people about it in language, and you wind up building a model that you use to communicate. That is exactly correct. I read Ingram, and I read Gupta, and they seem to be saying broadly the same stuff, and it appeals to me, and seems to fit with what I already know of the world, and gets me thinking that all this enlightenment stuff is starting to make sense.
One possible escape from total relativism: The description of what meditation is doing. The distinction between samatha and vipassana meditation.
Maybe we should reframe it as talking about two different parts of the brain? Other channels, like pain, are low bandwidth. This is why the placebo effect works — we get so little data about how much pain is coming from different parts of our bodies that even our strongest percepts are wild guesses, where we fill in the gaps with predictions and smooth away conflicting evidence.“Abandoned By Disney” is a creepypasta detailing a tourist’s encounter with a deranged, photo-negative mutant of Mickey Mouse that supposedly dwells on Treasure Island, an abandoned Disney resort located in Baker’s Bay, the Bahamas.
During Alice’s long battle with the disease and Leonard’s frequent visits, Leonard became close with Trekkie, who was an artist, and before he knew it, he fell madly in love with her, despite the fact that she was married and more than 20 years his junior.
