Heard of it?

I have tried to apply it in relation to the experiences of altered states.

Perceptions

The prob with the theory and altered staites it that requires a firm grasp on reality, and faith in your own perceptions.

Some (mis)perceptions in altered staites are garbage, ie people make good choices with regards to there "perceptions", but bad ones because of the "actual" facts of a situation.

Or in computer terms. "Garbage IN - Garbage OUT", ( acronym GIGO ).

The same concept could be applied to delusions.

I tend to monitor myself with respect to this, it can take me a long time to make descisions if I am unsure that my perceptions are scewed.

Just my thoughts.........boB........:cool:
