this is the first page i found. if you read it he says that people who've done only a little bit of it have reported that they now had mild to serious permanent damage to their eyes. i'm all for exploring alternative ideas but that doesn't sound like it's worth it.
You can also do it with your eyes closed , the one how take the sun energy is your third eye so no need to gaze directly with your eyes.
Just face the sun whit your eyes closed.
Never heard of that, and I'm a diagnosed schizo and got to know many other schizos and talk with them regularly IRL and on the internet, never did I hear of anyone stupid enough to stare at the sun..
Granted while psychotic we do many things deemed as crazy, but staring at the sun, shit hurts yo..
I can imagine that people do it anyways, but this hasn't anything to do with schizo imho, more with plain old stupidity.
Worshipping the sun is obvious
It's the most powerful thing any of us have ever seen
also blinding yourself for the sake of cutting off external physical stimuli (and supposedly becoming more aware of other phenomena in return) could be another explanation
It's stupid but it's not that weird when you think about it from a religious perspective
Look up John Dee. His partner in his spirtual works was most likey a schizophrenic. Leading me to believe spirituality can be formed and was formed through the interrpetations of schizophrenics. Also schizophrenia may have aided the formation of langauge as John Dee's partner kelly created the whole enochian language within a session of his scrying. Spirituality is a dangerous path it misleads those who seek knowledge and the answers of life, however it also can aid people as well. However the dangers of spirituality are evident.
often more than just a touch. Schiz-guys can see connections everywhere, 99% is madness/bullshit, and the rest might have some value, but nobody cares, if one makes some great innovation every now and then.
