When Scientists Have Mystical Experiences

What happens when scientists have a mystical experience?

When the skeptic has his or her eyes opened? When the rational comes up against the seemingly irrational? Lately we’ve been reading serious accounts of just these events. Our favorite new website is www.issc-taste.org, with it’s collected archive of first-hand transformative stories.
Originally created by Charles Tart, the website has become a real resource and a treasure house of true stories of scientist’s mystical experiences. The stories are fascinating and many readers who have had similar experiences will recognize the details of the events recounted.
From the TASTE website: T he Archive of Scientist’s Transcendent Experiences, (TASTE), is an online journal devoted to transcendent experiences that scientists have reported. It lets scientists report their experience in a safe space, collects and shares them to debunk the stereotype that “real scientists” don’t have “spiritual” or “mystical” or “psychic” experiences, builds a database of these experiences for future research, and helps us understand the full range of the human mind.”

The Element of Uncertainty

| by Merryn Jose

Many years ago I used to make a living reading the Tarot cards, and teaching others how to do it. Coming from a long line of psychics, I grew up watching my Mum give readings from tea leaves and cards as well. Early on my mother taught me that people want to hear about their love life, their houses, their kids and their careers. Not only that, but she also said, “People want to hear certainty and specific outcomes — when will I meet the love of their life? When will I get a promotion? What is the best house for me?” I found that while I enjoyed helping people, I felt the burden of responsibility for not misguiding them or being so directive that they ignored other possibilities.

The Western diet, high in fats, is associated with a higher risk of macular degeneration. Researchers have found that a high fat diet gives rise to weak gut microbiota resulting in poor digestion and long-range, low-grade inflammation in the entire body.

Knowing the Intelligent Cosmic Space by Paul Mulliner

You’re not a separate person. Neither am I. Although we have separate human bodies, the conscious awareness we all share with each other is a single field of cosmic intelligence, a spatial consciousness everywhere inside us and throughout the Universe.

How Meditation Can Affect Your Heart, Brain, and Creativity

Many people have tried to sell me on the idea of meditating. Sometimes I try it, and have an incredible, refreshing experience. But usually, as I close my eyes and focus on my breathing, while I know that I’m supposed to be letting all thoughts go, more and more fly through my mind. Soon I have a laundry-list of “to-dos” in my head … and then my legs fall asleep. It’s all downhill from there…. www.themindunleashed.org

An Alternative Path to Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis

| by Merryn Jose

A dear friend of mine suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and I watched her physical decline for years before she sadly passed away in 2013. This was so distressing to me, that when I first saw this TED talk from Dr. Terry Wahls, on her miraculous reversal of this terrible disease, I was enthralled. I immediately wanted to know more and started researching her story. A medical academic at The University of Iowa, Wahls was 45 when she was diagnosed with MS. Her health declined rapidly, and within a few years she was in a wheelchair. In a recent article, she wrote, “Despite taking the newest drug therapies available, by 2007 I was at my worst. I couldn’t even sit in a regular chair for more than 10 minutes because I was so weak. I had brain fog, severe fatigue and it was very hard to walk even a very short distance. It was around that same time, over 10 years ago, that I started reading the basic science about nutrition and MS, and I began experimenting…
