“The mathematics of quantum mechanics very accurately describes how our universe works. And it tells us our reality is continually branching into different possibilities, just like a coral.”

“We are the local embodiment of a Cosmos grown to self-awareness. We have begun to contemplate our origins: star stuff pondering the stars; organized assemblages of ten billion billion billion atoms considering the evolution of atoms; tracing the long journey by which, here at least, consciousness arose. Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth. Our obligation to survive is owed not just to ourselves but also to that Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring.”
– Carl Sagan
“Never believe fully in anybody else’s B.S. I don’t care if it’s Rajneesh, The Pope, L. Ron Hubbard, Al Gore, George Bush or I don’t care who it is, don’t swallow all of their belief system totally. Don’t accept all of their bullshit, all their B.S.
The second rule is like unto to the first: Don’t believe totally in your own B.S. Which means that, as Bucky Fuller said, “The universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events”. NON-SIMULTANEOUSLY. The universe consists of NON-SIMULTANEOUSLY apprehended events. Which means any belief system or reality tunnel you’ve got right now is gonna have to be revised and updated as you continue to apprehend new events later in time. Not simultaneously.
This is the natural functioning of the human brain. It’s the way children’s brains perform before they’re wrecked by the school system. It’s the way the minds of all great scientists and artists work. But once you have a belief system, everything that comes in either gets ignored if it doesn’t fit the belief system, or gets distorted enough so that it can fit into the belief system. You gotta be continually revising your map of the world.”
– Robert Anton Wilson
“I have realized that the past and future are real illusions, that they exist in the present,
which is what there is and all there is.”
“Through our eyes, the universe is perceiving itself. Through our ears, the universe is listening to its harmonies.
We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.”
“The reason most people don’t express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of the federal reserve, It’s what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.”
“Infinite love is the only truth. Everything else is illusion.”
“The planet’s spinning a thousand miles an hour around this gigantic nuclear explosion while these people roll these machines with rubber tires over this hard surface that we’ve laid down over the planet so that we can easily move ourselves back and forth.” – Joe Rogan
The Sensory Deprivation Tank is an amazing experience, I really recommend everyone try it.

“The infinite vibratory levels, the dimensions of interconnectedness are without end. There is nothing independent.
All beings and things are residents in your awareness.”
