I'm just getting into this amygdala thing so I have a few good links if you're interested. Seems like there's a wide range of reactions to this, anywhere from 'don't feel a thing' to 'instant nirvana'! Check these out.
I have read the Amygdala ideas before and think it has validity. I don't know how to have it happen in my brain though. I also had found some sites talking about post traumatic stress syndrome in relation to the amygdala getting too often set in the flight or fight position and basically sending the brain's signals to the more automatic response parts of the brain. So if to be enlightened is no suffering, which is to not have habitual though patterns or addictions running you, it correlates.
I wonder if you guys will try to figure out that clicking it forward thing and have a light bulb go off in you. I hope to revisit and refresh the amygdala ideas with your links here, thanks. Although, I don't think it leads to going out of body - I think it provides a brain state that allows you to be more connected and possibly get out of habitual thinking or thinking in general, in which case perception could get away from the illusion of a separate self and feel and one with all that is. Which might be like going out of body but staying in the body (he he).
