Thanks for the welcome. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and point of view with the guild. Are mods even still active on the forum? Lol.

Also, can't I delete the post myself? I think I saw a 'delete post' button somewhere around here..

But, I suppose that I can type up a whole semester, and then make a new thread for it. Thanks.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Also, I know you're probably annoyed by me asking, but, any opinions on this little 'series' I'm going to be starting?

No, not annoyed. It looks like you've put a lot of work into it, though the concepts so far are pretty basic. I'm waiting to see where you go with it.

It'l get a bit more advanced as I continue. I'm trying to take it a little slow, for newer psions. I don't have as much time to write as I wish I could, but I'll continue asap.

I wanted to clearify something.

whe nyou say meditate are you talking about entering an altered state, the 'normal western' meditation practice if a half hour to and hour, or connenting to your true state of spirit?

Uh, IronUR, I suggest you look up Dr Charles Tart, "Altered States of Consciousness". It's not a binary area to be working with - like, being drunk is an altered state of conciousness. Being in combat is an altered state of consciousness. Tripping on acid. Meditation. Hemisync.

It's a very large area and rather than have a flame war start over opinions... I suggest you go there and read. There are netfriendly editions.

You think I don't know. Well, maybe you're wrong. Maybe I'm wrong.

But assuming you are always right always puts you in the wrong.

Because assume just makes an ass of u and me.

Well, the first lesson posted by NIRS was a basic outline of how to meditate.

You are asking whether it's
Quote:
entering an altered state, the 'normal western' meditation practice if a half hour to and hour
Or

Quote:
connenting to your true state of spirit?
Which is a BINARY question - only two possible answers, this one or that one.

My point is, "altered state of consciousness" isn't a binary result. There are MANY states of "consciousness".

Tell you what... I'l PM NIRS and ask them if they would mind looking over your posts and my posts and give an opinion, OK? Best I can do.

Psionic meditation is much different from general meditation, vaguely speaking, I don't have enough time on my hands at this particular moment to explain this to you, because I actually have an important test tomorrow for school, but, its not exactly 'connecting to your true state of spirit', no, its something entirely different. When psions meditate, they are gaining energy from their source for their own use. I'll be sure to make a mental note to explain this more in-depth tomorrow after school.


In the meantime, my latest addition to the school of combat series is almost done being written. It should've been done a while ago, but school really gets in the way. Look forward to seeing an update within the next few days.
