Anyway, this site is a simple editable wiki to link together some alternative ideas across the realm of the human experience; for example...
Thisvideo of "Weird Al" Yankovic
Ken Wilber -
“The simple fact is that we live in a world of conflict and opposites because we live in a world of boundaries. Since every boundary line is also a battle line, here is the human predicament: the firmer one’s boundaries, the more entrenched are one’s battles. The more I hold onto pleasure, the more I necessarily fear pain. The more I pursue goodness, the more I am obsessed with evil. The more I seek success, the more I must dread failure. The harder I cling to life, the more terrifying death becomes. The more I value anything, the more obsessed I become with its loss. Most of our problems, in other words, are problems of boundaries and the opposites they create..”
Maths exists as possibility, outside of time. Before time, maths still existed as possibility, 1 + 1 always equaled 2, no matter when or where; so this interaction of mathematical problems has always been present. Where this gets interesting is when you consider something like a Mandelbrot set, represented in colour on the left. This is just maths, but it is visually interesting, a video of a Mandelbrot set is even more so, when you see that it is a holographic system, the more you zoom into any part, the more you can see. So this particular simple mathematical system can produce a visual image of infinite possibility, with infinite variation.
In this video by Paul Stamets, we hear about how life is created from single cell organisms up to complex lifeforms. This video focuses around the importance of Mycelium (the life form that plants rely on) for all life.
Within the ever present nature of mathematical possibility, perhaps consider the idea of 'comparison', a frame of reference could 'exist' for comparison, creating two points, subject and observer. Now if the 'subject' moved producing some change, say moving a distance along a 1 dimensional plane called distance, then what happens? Movement of two dots? So what, one grain of sand said to another. Mathematical dots in an infinite graph only existing in so much as a possibility.
Well actually what this means is we have a new plane of comparison. Since we create change, then we can measure the rate of change, the derivative of that movement. We could reference the ∆ (delta: rate of change) in a new dimension, perhaps... Time (link). The quantum dots in the flux of all possibility now have a new attribute. But what is time? A connection between disjointed possibilities?
The simple act of a quantum dot moving in reference to where it was, now gives that dot movement, and the changes in movement can be also recorded, within a reference frame called time. Now we have moved from nothing ever existing, to an infinite universe of dots resonating in an infinite number of ways. We've just created atoms. Possibly these two dimensional dots, with only position and time, interacted with other dots which only existed because it was mathematically possible that perhaps they would. When they interact, in the infinite number of ways that they could, perhaps interesting and new things happen, perhaps these dots expanded into more complex systems of dots interacting in new organic ways. Fast forward, dude typing on a keyboard, you get the idea.
Why? Because it existed within infinite possibility, and reached a critical mass of statistical significance, and thus happened. A noted pioneer in this area of thought was Lt. Col. Thomas Bearden, who talks about the equation "Spacetime ≡ energy ≡ Virtual Particle Flux"
This whole thing sounds a lot like Terence McKenna...
"Stanislav Grof is one of the most important pioneers in the scientific understanding of consciousness. He and his wife, Christina, have contributed both to its intellectual and experiential understanding through their work with Holotropic Breathwork." -Deepak Chopra
“The human psyche shows that each individual is an extension of all of existence." Stanislav Grof
"A radical inner transformation and rise to a new level of consciousness might be the only real hope we have in the current global crisis brought on by the dominance of the Western mechanistic paradigm." Stanislav Grof
annd following the spirit of the website domain, "A text of Tibetan Buddhism describes the time of death (link) as a unique opportunity for spiritual liberation from the cycles of death and rebirth and a period that determines our next incarnation." Stanislav Grof
There are many an inspirational video on youtube narrated by Joe Rogan.

Psychedelics are without doubt a contentious issue, some believe they rot the mind, to others their transcendent effects have the potential to elevate the awareness of the human condition
At a certain point in deep spiritual investigation people such as Darryl Anka (aka Bashar) and Franco Denicola come up. This is in the realm of psychic phenomena and sci-fi like narratives.
Transpersonal psychology is a school of psychology that integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience with the framework of modern psychology.
Steven Greer is an American retired medical doctor and ufologist who founded the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI) and The Disclosure Project, which seeks the disclosure of suppressed UFO information. The Disclosure Project is responsible for a large number of witness disclosures across government, military and civilian such as Larry Warren, a member of the US Air Force Security Police who witnessed the Rendlesham Forest incident. Much of the work of the disclosure project is included in Sirius (2013) the documentary.
Holistic, meaning the importance of the whole and the interdependence of its parts.
It is claimed that neither free will nor determinism can be proven to be correct, but perhaps this argument forms a paradox with more definable characteristics.
