Mindspritzers

When we consider the nature of consciousness, it's funny to look back at ancient mankind and realize they were closer to the truth than the so-called moderns, many of whom viewed ancient man with condescension.  Let us take the ancient Israelite religion as an example.  The ancient Hebrew "nephesh," the word for what might be called consciousness today, meant literally breath, an animating breath that brought the body to life.  Thousands of years later, scientists talked about the brain, neurons, synapses, all of that.  But we know it's easier and better to conceive of the mind as a mist, not contained within a brain, but spread throughout space, yet able to concentrate in smaller pockets,  but also able to concentrate in multiple places at once.

It wasn't just the ancient tribes of Israel that sensed the true nature of things.  As another example, many of the Buddhists also had a much better picture of reality, while the mass of men led lives of quiet ignorance.  One of the Buddhists who was on to something once said "the biggest illusion is I'm in here and you're out there."

But as far as we can tell, it wasn't until the year 3,027 (to go by the calendar used at the time) that man really learned of mindspritzing.  Yes, there had been isolated moments prior that came close - in dream states, through meditation, drugs, etc. - but not until 3,027 did what we know as mindspritzing truly and completely enter the human world.
