The Mythology, Legends, and Mysticism Napster

Ladies and gentlemen,
So as to complete our Napster library selections, we offer a Napster for myths, legends, mysticism, astrology, and subjects deemed as pseudoscience.

Although some references may unavoidably cross over into UFO links, please keep this Napster void of UFO information to the greatest extent possible.

As with all Napsters, please post only quotes, links, and specific references. A brief caption is fine but all arguments and discussions should be continued as a regular thread.

You should feel free to post what you believe are good links and references for subjects that are important or interesting to you.

Cryptozoology

Have we found all the large animals still living in the world? Probably not, since in the last decade some previously unknown species have surfaced in Southeast Asia, for example. This page is dedicated to such animals -- commonly called "cryptids" -- which might possibly exist in nature but whose existence has not yet been accepted by modern science.

Near Death Experiences in Cardiac Arrest and the Mystery of Consciousness

Cardiac arrest patients are a subgroup of people who come closest to death. In such a situation an individual initially develops two out of three criteria (the absence of spontaneous breathing and heartbeat) of clinical death. Shortly afterwards (within seconds) these are followed by the third, which occurs due to the loss of activity of the areas of the brain responsible for sustaining life (brainstem) and thought processes (cerebral cortex). Brain monitoring using EEG in animals and humans has also demonstrated that the brain ceases to function at that time. During a cardiac arrest, the blood pressure drops almost immediately to unrecordable levels and at the same time, due to a lack of blood flow, the brain stops functioning as seen by flat brain waves (isoelectric line) on the monitor within around 10 seconds. This then remains the case throughout the time when the heart is given 'electric shock' therapy or when drugs such as adrenaline are given until the heartbeat is finally restored and the patient is resuscitated. Due to the lack of brain function in these circumstances, therefore, one would not expect there to be any lucid, well-structured thought processes, with reasoning and memory formation, which are characteristic of NDEs.

Nevertheless, and contrary to what we would expect scientifically, studies have shown that 'near death experiences' do occur in such situations. This therefore raises a question of how such lucid and well-structured thought processes, together with such clear and vivid memories, occur in individuals who have little or no brain function. In other words, it would appear that the mind is seen to continue in a clinical setting in which there is little or no brain function. In particular, there have been reports of people being able to 'see' details from the events that occurred during their cardiac arrest, such as their dentures being removed.

It seems that I have created some confusion here. I have posted links to sources like the Quran and the Bible within the context of more general subject matter such as aliens, gnomes, and ghosts. I see these sources as valid historical sources for consideration, not to say that they qualify as accurate sources, but posts that promote specific religious beliefs are not allowed. Sorry for the confusion; it is sometimes a fine line to walk.

Dowsing

Although many scientists claim that proof of dowsing exists, I am not convinced that this evidence meets the standards required to be accepted as genuine by the scientific community. For this reason I am posting here rather than in the Credible Anomalies thread. Personally, I think dowsing does work for some, at times, but this is based on my own perceptions and observations, and not scientific evidence. I believe that my dad and uncle have both done this many times, but since there were no controls I can't trust that my opinion is correct. I know that they believe it works. In fact, my dad was shocked when I told him that this is not generally accepted as credible. As a retired engineer who has little to no interest in fringe subjects, he was quite bothered by this. He never knew. Finally he shrugged and said something like, oh well, I know it works.

Possession

Author wrestles with 'the Devil'
Readers of "Glimpses of the Devil" might be tempted to ask, "What would possess a respected psychiatrist to pen a book about his work as an exorcist?" ..."I went to confirm my belief that the devil didn't exist," Peck said. "What happened was that my belief was shaken up - more than shaken up, it was blown to smithereens." [continued]
