Chapter 5. RESEARCH IMPLICATIONS 
snipped> 
"Secondly, when a group of investigators take the drug at the same time, they 
develop a closeness of relationship in terms of feeling which verges upon the telepathic. 
Thus scientists can develop shared introspection and can begin to evolve research 
techniques which will permit the comparison of emotional states—the measurement of 
emotion. "


Curious to know if anyone has been researching this aspect.

Interesting..Ithink It's because the same neurotransmitters or new neurological parts are activated/created , thus creating the same new neurological paths and so having the same emotional state. Once new neuro-parts have been created, they stay there. (like riding a bike, you never forget how to ride..) something like that,..grtz!

I've been wanting to conduct an experiment to prove some things, or at least know some terminology for things that have been observed.

If LSD were made legal what if any restrictions should be placed around its provision?

Not for anything- M.A.P.S~ you are promoting the use of psychedelics (which are certainly not my gripe) but where are folks supposed to hook up w/CLEAN drugs such as these?
On the streets? You all make it seem so available-doubt it~
and back in the day when I was fortunate enough to have the real stuff within my reach-didn't really think of them as something to take on a week-end.
To me these are much more spiritual & deserve much respect~
Know about your work w/Vets & PTSD & have written to you many times for assistance-not for me but for my 25 yr old son. I had promoted your research & solicitation for funds under my real name.....But as a seriously afflicted ( as well as my kid) PTSD sufferer-I do wish there was Tx available for folks like me...And though I don't proclaim the terror of combat-I have had some combats in life that were quite horrific
~so as you post all this really positive results-it is like you are waving relief in the faces of those still debilitated by this overwhelmingly obstructive malady~
So unless you have a place for folks to get together & explore what
IS available~I seem to be in the wrong place again.
wishing you PeAcE---we all really need it....but I am not getting it & more importantly IS my son~thanks anyway.

Contributors to research into MDMA-assisted psychotherapy research for PTSD treatment are maximizing their impact thanks to a generous $1-for-$1 matching donation— we've raised over $6,000 in two days, which will be doubled into $12,000! You can still double your donation's impact—and get great rewards too! http://mdmaptsd.org/healingtrauma

7 days left!

every time I see this post IT IS always the same amount and has been for over 6 months~ALWAYS within the $12K range
why is this? I never forget the PRICE of things~

The Way the Universe Changed

At the end of the 1800s we finally knew how the universe worked.  Newton’s laws of motion and gravity had been studied for 200 years, and had become the pinnacle of scientific precision.  James Clerk Maxwell had unified the electricity, magnetism and light into a single elegant theory, and Darwin’s theory of evolution explained how living things were connected.  There were still mysteries to be explored, but it seemed the grand structure of the universe was now known.  We lived in a clockwork universe, where cause led to effect, where simple laws governed complex mechanisms.  It was a proven world, as I’ve written about in an earlier series of posts (http://goo.gl/6MVg0).  

 At the time it was generally thought that the nagging mysteries such as the structure of atoms and the structure of the universe would eventually come into the Newtonian fold.  But they didn’t.  Instead, small mysteries became large ones.  The physical laws we thought we understood didn’t always apply.  Understanding atoms and light would require a radically new way of looking at the universe.  Some of the most cherished scientific ideas of precision and determinism would have to be discarded or revised.  Science would undergo a quantum revolution.

Between 1900 and 1950 our understanding of the universe underwent a fundamental shift from a classical, clockwork universe to a quantum universe of probabilities and interactions.  It was a shift that revealed a universe that was larger, younger and more profoundly complex than we had imagined.

This shift can be summarized in six simple equations shown below.  Each one was a step toward modern quantum theory.  

1. The more you have, the faster it is gone.
2. Sometimes you have to make a quantum leap.
3. Every temperature has a color.
4. Light is a wave, except when it’s not.
5. What you observe depends on how you observe it.
6. There are some things you can never know. 

So this week we’ll look at each of these equations, how we came to understand them, and how they changed our view of the universe forever.  We’ll start with the first one tomorrow.  It describes radioactive decay, and it was the first clue that certain effects don’t have a mechanical cause.

The quantum revolution starts tomorrow.
