    Possibly just mood swings, possibly something greater/deeper

    After a night characterized by dejection and some less than wholesome thoughts, I felt a sudden, yet profound, change. It was as though a spirit entered my body and reinvigorated it. I thereupon devised a fairly preposterous plan (objectively speaking) that I intend to earnestly pursue. As of...

    Jiddu Krishnamurti on the Roots of Psychological Disorder

    I thought this was interesting because it speaks to the boundary between psychological dysfunction and spirituality from the perspective of a possibly enlightened being. It is actually a round table, also involving a few other notable scientists of the time, including Rupert Sheldrake.
