The Gnostics referred to the ultimate reality as The Pleroma, accessible to only those who had, as William Blake said, cleansed the doors of perception. For normal individuals, the Pleroma is only experienced in fleeting glimpses. For others, the doors of perception are fully opened by certain neurological processes starting with migraine and progressing through various altered states such as temporal lobe epilepsy, bi-polar syndrome, autism, and schizophrenia. We quest for the ways to manage these disorders, ultimately finding the universal means of accessing the Pleroma as the shamanistic Gnostics once freely did. This is part of our Schrodinger’s Diary Series, where we mine the Reality behind reality and the secrets of consciousness with the latest science and philosophy.
