Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Saw a BBC documentary the other night about bipolar disorder, more commonly known as manodepressivity. Anyway there was a fellow in the program who during his manic periods saw angels (he was not presented as representing anything other then his own experience, none of the others saw angels). He therefore believed in the existence of angels.

And I must say that is highly scientific of him, trusting his own experience of the world.

Human experience has always been modified, even transmogrified, by biochemical metaprogramming.

Perceived reality is always pattern memory fucked by the hormone, semi-homone and neurotransmitter factories - which are in turn activated by input to the pattern memories.

Without GABA we'd all be nuts, because, deep down, we are all highly inhibited.
