>Some useful tips before posting:
New readers should post that they're offering readings and what information they require from a querent.
Look for their posts in the thread to determine what's needed and before posting, check if they finished reading already.
Some readers will refuse to do certain readings -- respect that choice. Also, bullshit queries will get bullshit answers.
An "air query" can be made to no one in particular, but no one in particular may answer!

Please, respect each other, let's keep things decent here.

Existence of the soul

So, there is abundance of places or other universes where our soul could migrate after death, according to the theory of neo-biocentrism. But does the soul exist? Is there any scientific theory of consciousness that could accommodate such a claim? According to Dr. Stuart Hameroff, a near-death experience happens when the quantum information that inhabits the nervous system leaves the body and dissipates into the universe. Contrary to materialistic accounts of consciousness, Dr. Hameroff offers an alternative explanation of consciousness that can perhaps appeal to both the rational scientific mind and personal intuitions.
Consciousness resides, according to Stuart and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose, in the microtubules of the brain cells, which are the primary sites of quantum processing. Upon death, this information is released from your body, meaning that your consciousness goes with it. They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR).
Consciousness, or at least proto-consciousness is theorized by them to be a fundamental property of the universe, present even at the first moment of the universe during the Big Bang. "In one such scheme proto-conscious experience is a basic property of physical reality accessible to a quantum process associated with brain activity."
Our souls are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe - and may have existed since the beginning of time. Our brains are just receivers and amplifiers for the proto-consciousness that is intrinsic to the fabric of space-time. So is there really a part of your consciousness that is non-material and will live on after the death of your physical body?

Apparently this video can summon a succubus:
even the creator acknowledged that he's hearing different sounds every time, and he does not edit these videos, this doesn't seem like a meme, since last night was the first time i've seen this anywhere.
2 active threads have been deleted for no reason, the first one could be interpreted as a NSFW op pic, but the second one was completely SFW and did not break any rules, i'm still looking for people who wanted to listen to it last night and report results.
P.S. this time i'm using an image that CANNOT be interpreted as NSFW

Hey guys i'm back. No creepypasta this week so instead gather round as I tell you a story that happened to me IRL.
>2014, San Diego, California
>me and my then gf (pic related) had just moved into a new apartment by the highway with our young child
>everything seems normal enough for the first 7 months, but things got interesting.
>my kid started acting funny and threw up this weird black goo of some sorts
>shit was fucked so we took him to the hospital
>doctor said he was fine but had to stay at the hospital for tests for a week
>gf was into new age hippie spiritual shit and would do weird prayers and stuff like that for him
>I hoped my sone Jorge was alright, sure his skin was a bit darker than mine and how my honey got pregnant when I was in rehab was weird but its probably my imagination
>one night i noticed something
> a woman
>she was in all black and had hair in her face
>she beckoned me to her but I declined
> later on her son turned out to be ok
> some virus from Mexico that came to Cali
>i told her about the woman and told me that its basically the mexican grim reaper and if i was to go to her, me and everyone i love would have died.
Unfortunately a year later we broke up and too the kid and moved in with her new bf, some black guy.
I moved to San Fran later on and met a qt at a Bernie Sanders rally and we've become sort of a thing ever since. Thanks for reading!

Maladaptive daydreaming or excessive daydreaming is a psychological concept first introduced by Eli Somer to describe an extensive fantasy activity that replaces human interaction and/or interferes with academic, interpersonal, or vocational functioning. It might be related to childhood emotional neglect, bullying or any type of abuse that motivates victims to divorce from the threatening world.
Signs and symptoms
While there are many specific symptoms of a maladaptive daydreamer, someone with this disorder will not necessarily have all of them.
Often maladaptive daydreamers will have 'triggers' that set off their daydreams. Common triggers are books, movies, music, and even riding in a car. Maladaptive daydreamers also may have trouble getting out of bed or going to sleep, due to the want to continue daydreaming. Often times while maladaptive daydreamers are daydreaming they will whisper, talk, make facial expressions, or do some sort of repetitive movement, such as pacing.
Maladaptive daydreamers can spend hours simply daydreaming. They often have elaborate fantasies within their minds, often comparable to a complete novel or movie. Many have more than one fantasy in their mind, each with its own characters, setting, plots, etc. Maladaptive daydreamers may become emotionally attached to their characters as well, though they know the characters are not real.
Recurrent themes may include:
Power and control
Rescue and escape
Anybody here have this?
