BHA31: Enlightenment vs. Disillusionment

Welcome back! After a hiatus of over a month, Black Hoodie Alchemy resumes -- and I've got a bone to pick with the notion of enlightenment. While I don't discount that enlightenment is an attainable state of consciousness, and I don't discount that there are altruistic people alive today that claim enlightenment, I've got a real hard time with the idea of enlightenment for several reasons.  You can listen to […]

Schizophrenia or Saint?

What’s the difference between St. Joan of Arc’s visions of St. Michael and a schizophrenic who hears angelic voices? In Western culture, one is sainthood; the other, psychosis.

Biphasic

If you’re an insomniac like me, you’ve tried warm milk, OTC sleep aids, and prescriptions. I hated being a constipated, broke zombie every morning - was there no other way? Bi-What? I didn’t intend to start a sleep experiment, but I naturally fell into a biphasic sleep pattern. Most people sleep in one long block of time, aka monophasic sleep.
