Religion has taken us places and has come close to destroying us, so what's it
all about and do we really need it?
The War on Consciousness by Graham Hancock
In this lecture, the topic of consciousness and the benefits of psychedelics are discussed at length. Can the shamanistic brew, ayahuasca, really change a person's life for the better?
According to Graham, this potent brew can literally show you the mistakes you are making in your life and even help the user kick a nasty habit or addiction. He then moves on to talk about how consciousness still isn't completely understood, even by today's most brilliant minds.
Graham offers the controversial theory that our brains don't produce consciousness, but act as an “antenna” for it. Could that point to life after death being a possibility? He closes the lecture by telling the audience about how our society needs find spirit and become open to altered states once again.
In the section on the origins of religion, we have videos and commentary from well know thinkers and researchers. But how ever we think of religion or our own lives, life and religion must be put into context with our real history as best we can understand.
Everything you know is wrong - Old news yet still relevant.
You may find this video to your right delivers something of a shock and a challenge to your beliefs, yet this view is consistent with holistic understanding and helps explain may of the differences between societies and especially the anger in Islam and Christianity where women are treated as slaves and the men wallow in sex but have yet to discover woman as a human being with a personality of her own.
