  1. 3 Virtualization, Higher Leadership Training​ By Exegesisme In my dream or meditating state, I gain real feeling as I hold the hand of the other who is not real in common living life, and I can see words and figures meaningfully in my meditated vision too. These experiences are usually seen as somethings supernatural. However, just now I had an surprised experience of human technology as I visited this website ( http://www.magicleap.com/#/home). Human beings use modern technology to create sensations much clearer than what I see in my meditating state. No matter in meditating state with super nature or in human technological virtualization, human beings gain new ways of training. Human lives in future will be tremendously changed by meditation from inner side and technological virtualization from out side. Different societies and different nations will be arranged on different levels of the hierarchy of meditation and virtualization. Higher leadership will be trained in them, and in turn the higher leadership will promote them to farther high level.
  2. From the good luck ending religion dept.: I noticed this entry on Epiphenomena, which has been recently posting articles from several studies comparing skeptics and religious-minded people. These findings indicate that a portion of the population has a high tendency to see hidden agents....which is about what ghosts would be. And the likelihood of seeing ghosts does not match up entirely with religious belief: The human mind is naturally attuned to try to spot hidden agents. In fact, we're too good at it, because we tend to interpret all sorts of random environmental noise as actually being caused by someone. It's widely thought that this tendency contributes to religious belief, and yet it's also the case that many religious people don't claim to have seen any spiritual agents directly at work - and many no-religious people see ghosts from time to time..................................................... They found that, relative to other kinds of supernatural experiences, non-religious, supernatural agents (AKA ghosts) were more often seen when the environment was secluded, dark, quiet, and threatening. Those who had seen ghosts also reported being anxious or upset at the time. That wasn't the case for religious supernatural agents.......................................................... What this suggests is that anxiety and distress combine to make it more likely that people will see ghosts, but that this relationship doesn't hold for religious experiences. It';s interesting to contrast this with other research showing that anxiety and uncertainty can make people see things that aren't there, and also that religion is more popular in environments that are threatening or dangerous. Maybe turning to religion is one way to reduce the distress caused by supernatural experiences that are caused by threatening environments! http://epiphenom.fieldofscience.com/2013/02/what-kind-of-person-sees-ghosts.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+BhaScienceGroup+%28Epiphenom%29 I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the growth in unconventional or new age spirituality in Europe, that coincides with the decline in traditional religious beliefs? But it might indicate that someone who is quick to think there's a ghost in a dark room is not going to be happier as an atheist than when they believe their religion helps them deal with the ghost.
