Ego Death

Ego death is a change in one’s sense of self-control. The practice of ego death as a deliberately sought “mystical experience” in some ways overlaps, but is nevertheless distinct from, traditional teachings concerning enlightenment/”Nirvana” (in Buddhism) or “Moksha” (in Jainism), which might perhaps be better understood as transcendence of the notion that one even has any actual, non-illusory “ego” with which to experience “death” in the first place.

Perhaps the most direct means of accomplishing the mystical experience of ego death is through ingestion of entheogenic drugs such as LSD, salvia divinorum, DXM, ketamine, psilocybin, mescaline, or DMT.

Many other methods, practices, or experiences may also induce this state, including prayer, sleep deprivation, fasting, meditation practice, or through the use of an isolation tank. Less frequently, it might also come about spontaneously or “of its own accord” (as a symptom of certain mental illnesses, or in response to severe trauma).

Ill-effects of aspirin

One medicine that I always carry with me is an aspirin, thanks to all the pollution and noise. It surely is one of the most frequently used drugs because of the quick relief it offers, but then like everything else, aspirins have quite a few ill-effects.

Here are some of them:

  1. Aspirin use has been shown to increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.
  2. Reye’s syndrome, a severe illness characterized by acute encephalopathy and fatty liver, can occur when children or adolescents are given aspirin for a fever or other illnesses or infections.
  3. For a small number of people, aspirin can result in symptoms that resemble an allergic reaction and include hives, swelling, and headache. The reaction is caused by salicylate intolerance and is not a true allergy but rather an inability to metabolize even small amounts of aspirin, resulting in an overdose.
  4. Aspirin can cause prolonged bleeding after operations for up to 10 days.

Overdose of aspirin should definitely be avoided. Here’s why according to Wikipedia.

Aspirin overdose can be acute or chronic. In acute poisoning, a single large dose is taken; in chronic poisoning, higher than normal doses are taken over a period of time. Acute overdose has a mortality rate of 2%. Chronic overdose is more commonly lethal with a mortality rate of 25%.




So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
