    Gerry, did I ever tell you that one of my favorite courses in undergrad was psychology? I had a really great professor. I'll never forget the advice he gave me after I failed the first two quizzes. I quote, "make some friends in class, get a six pack of beer, and have weekly discussions over the reading material." I did what he said (only we got a 12 pack) and I turned that F into a solid A- by the end of the course.

    The brightest one kept getting punched out by an engineer because his people skills were severely lacking. He failed to take into consideration the engineer's feelings while attempting a rescue that could have resulted in the death of one of the engineer's men. He told the engineer that his plan was better because he was clearly smarter than he was. The engineer didn't like that.

    #13 Thank you, Ian. The reason I ask is that my impression from a series of articles by the London Telegraph, which has shown a lot of interest in the declassified papers, is that what is contained therein is a copy of an analyst's report, not any data or documents from the purported research. If my impression is correct, then the source of this information is highly questionable, as I would give it a high probability that a CIA apparatchik would produce a report and draw conclusions that would naturally tend to justify the time and money spent on the agency's research program. Which is why in the U.S. we have the Office of the Auditor General to provide independent evaluation of how public monies are spent. Without access to the research documentation, the story doesn't carry much more weight than asking Uri Geller what happened. Cheers!
    Ian Weinberg
    24/01/2017 #13 Ian Weinberg
    #7 Here's what I know @Phil Friedman: I read a report commenting on the release of the declassified documents. It indicated that the CIA ran a top secret research team that studied paranormal phenomena with special applications in the psych espionage area . This was headed by a group of high-powered physicists. (BTW the Russians had an entire institute dedicated to this research). The report that I read stated that remote viewing and PK by Uri Geller was validated. There were also illustrations accompanying which showed 'transmitted' drawings and what was perceived by Geller - which were identical! But obviously you make an extremely important point - for those of us that seek scientific confirmation, we need the original documents to peruse. I'm still in the process of searching for them. Will update and share as soon as I get hold of them.

    #10 Dear Ian, it is fascinating to be connecting the dots in an imaginary space, bereft of proof and evidence. But the oral tradition of knowledge dissemination was trusted for long and we kinda tend to believe in it a little more than others here in India. This strange little peninsula attracted the world to it long before Columbus discovered the new world! ;) So many mysteries it still does keep. But that said, it will be my pleasure to introduce you to some awe-inspiring mystics, seers and psychics if ever you come a-visiting. They are reclusive, now a bit out of touch, but are good friends. And will gladly amaze you with stuff like teleportation, telepathy, scrying, remote-viewing and stuff :) I almost convinced one a decade ago to take Randi's Million Dollar challenge but he neither wanted the money nor the travel! (In case you are wondering, this particular gentleman in question had the astounding ability to make a tractor drive by itself ...for a short distance...20- 25 yards...when asked why only that distance, he joked about wasting fuel ...of the mental kind). I'll be durned if that doesn't make you laugh a little harder than before! ;)

    #6 Thanks for that Lisa. I don't think we should abandon our left hemispheres. After all many of us still need to do the work while 'the chosen' intuit! But I do think that there is too much of a left shift with the all the fear and anxiety around. Perhaps a 20 min visit to your local neuropsych unit on a weekly basis to set your right hemisphere free, may work to take the sting out of things.

    Fascinating Ian. but I would argue this;
    "If we translate this all into some practicality we can conclude that those individuals who are too amygdala-based – fearful (fear of failure, fear of loss, fear of not being adored and recognized), anxious and angry and who have raised adrenaline levels, are predominantly left hemispheral and have the lowest levels of intuition, creativity, sensitivity and emotional connection."
    I think it goes beyond hemisphere dominance and would also argue that the 'fear' that many 'feel' is tied directly to the ESP but at the same time if they are able to manage the fear that develops when they 'see/feel' more than the average, then perhaps they heighten their ESP capabilities. Alternatively; those that don't seem to exhibit fear are in actuality not in tune to the possibilities of ESP or PK. They are the 'bulls in the china shop', dominant personalities who bulldoze their way to success...A certain politician comes to mind. They're are definitely many questions still to answer, many avenues to be explored.
    Very interesting subject and one I always believed was being studied more than was known by the general public.

    24/01/2017 #7 Phil Friedman
    Trying to follow here, Ian. You say, "...his powers were validated in strict laboratory conditions". Do the declassified documents detail the laboratory experiments and the strict conditions under which the conclusions cited were drawn? Or are we relying here strictly on summary conclusions included in a report by a non-scientific analyst? If the research is actually included in the released documents, that indeed, would be huge. Cheers!

    Fascinating concepts, Prof. @Ian Weinberg! My pea-brain whirls with questions and images! Here's a couple of fairly stupid questions: Assuming it is possible to train a bunch of intuits for a sustained common purpose, they aren't their 'minds [confined] over matter', thus being subject to an albeit disciplined amount of wandering off point? Even using rTMS to suppress left hemisphere function, what are the ramifications of sustained use? Would it be possible to petri-dish R-sided 'brains' that could be used to enhance an intuit?
    Such possibilities are endlessly intriguing - many thanks!
    It's the word dopamine that caught my eye initially. My husband has DBS for PD - right up your alley.

    Doc, exhilarating stuff! ....To quote you - In other words, human consciousness has co-creatorship properties – we create physicality from energy!....Unquote. Reminds me of the many stories of many Rishis/Sages, even ancient Kings doing severe penance for years and years...and finally the deity of their super intense meditation appearing physically in front of them and granting them three boons etc. I have always believed that it is the sage himself who creates the God that appears in front of him. Such is the power of visualisation and Dhyana/Zen. Almost all of us can make simpler things happen if we exert enough. (Using The Secret kinda). But not many are capable of the corollary detachment, renunciation and focused mental application with the right techniques. To quote you again - ...we rather recruit an army of intuits to focus heat energy on a central tower at a given location...Unquote. Many acknowledge the power of Prayer, doing exactly this, remotely. The Siddhas of India...an esoteric sect of sages, do nothing but breathe in various rhythms all the time, meditating and visualising and creating positive emanations/energies just to negate the negative currents created by man's negative thoughts and actions. These Siddhas have been travelling across the world for ages spreading knowledge and stuff for ages...and have since been given native identities. Many of them are now said to reside in the Himalayas, away from civilisation and inaccessible in their chosen path. Even the Sufis believe it is the constant effort and striving of these Elders (in Purdah/ a cloak of invisibility which is more a disguise to keep away prying eyes of science and reason ;), that keeps the balance of forces in nature. Fascinating stuff really!

    Nice buzz, Ian, I really enjoyed reading it. This all reminds me of teleporting, parallel universes, and even time travel to an extent. Hopefully, the theoretical will become reality as social intellectualism, cognitive functions and science merge and matures to reach new states of consciousness. Perhaps, some new Einstein first needs to solve the so-called, "Theory of Everything" and bridge the gap between general relativity and quantum mechanics for all this to work (or become untangled). I hope to see it some day.

    I dig it big time.

    Being right brain dominant myself this all made a lot of sense and falls in line with a lot of the field research I have done over the last few years in working with those with pronounced ESP traits. Nearly all of it at a distance from all across the world.

    As for the renewable energy idea, I really love this.

    It is theorized and has been channeled by a few people that something similar was used on Atlantis and the storage was a crystal of some sort that overloaded and exploded. Similar concept to what you have presented and is absolutely feasible however the danger of the overload has to be taken into account.

    First idea that comes to mind and I am sure is not original, is to build near large bodies of water or along coasts or even make them platforms in the ocean in order to ground out excessive energy build ups to avoid the overload scenario.

    It will get built, it's too good of an idea and every 100th monkey is being influenced by it until enough monkeys make it happen.

    The other idea that comes to mind is that our thoughts move into a layer of existence known as manifestation space filled with raw energy waiting to be transmuted into something in the 3d reality.

    @Ian Weinberg I love the things you throw out here to spark the mind to be a conduit for more to flow.

    Quite an interesting read, @Ian Weinberg.

    I have thought for awhile that the reason we as a population are so suspiciously unable to replicate what we lump together as paranormal is precisely because we approach them with anxiety and we use the skills of the wrong side of the brain to approach tracking and measuring and designing experiments to tease out what is going on.

    I have a special energy meter in my house that helps me with this.

    She has four legs. When I feel intense love for her, she comes to me for touch. The second I use language in my brain, "I love my dog. Bet she will come to me." the experiment fails. I find it practically impossible to reverse out of language. Even just a quick, 'let's try this' results in a dog who does not move. I feel result. I think no result.

    Love is certainly re-knewable and what we need to do is become more aware of how the methodology and the toolset we utilize are precluding the results when it comes to what our entire brain is capable of.

She has everything...Money, houses, friends (the ones she can still manipulate) and her health...which she put in jeopardy when she starved herself.

    #21 Hi @Cyndi wilkins, after reading that I feel cured (just joking to make light of the seriousness of your friends condition). Wow, I've never heard of an illness like that, I wonder what the term is? It sounds like she's sucking the energy out of you and you don't need that right now... or ever. One thing that did enlighten me through counseling, I have allowed others for way too long to take advantage of me and drain me because I didn't want to hurt their feelings. I have been letting go of toxic relationships. My anger spilled out this year and I'm sure grief played a large role. In some ways I have to thank grief for it because it opened my eyes to others and myself a bit more. Maybe your friend is more than you need to deal with and she needs to get extreme help from professionals? It almost sounds like she has a personality disorder too which can't be fixed. I'm sorry that happened to you. You need positive people around you that are going to care about YOUR feelings!! Hugs Cyndi, so many ups/downs after the loss of a loved one, don't allow her to intrude on your own healing.

    @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher ...I am absolutely not going to say, "I know how you feel." I am just going to comment that I know where you are...Big difference. Grief hugely exacerbates underlying conditions...but is certainly not their cause. Grief is a natural process of our being...Trauma however, is not...nor is chemical imbalance in the brain. The "invisible invasion" I like to call it... Your advantage to the situation is your AWARENESS...Many stay locked away in denial...mostly because of this terrible stigma attached to mental illness. I had an experience with a close friend recently in the aftermath of my dad's passing...This friend of mine suffers from a condition that resembles Munchausen Syndrome...whereas she is constantly adopting the "conditions" of others that she sees are drawing them sympathetic attention....Most recently of course would be Dementia...A condition my dad suffered toward the end of his life that caused me to focus my total attention on him. She always seems quite put off when she is not the center of attention...in the past, she went so far as to starve herself and lose 22 pounds in the process.She and I went to a play the other day...Something I have not been able to do for quite some time.I was a bit late picking her up and she snapped at me a little when she got in the car. She said she had been waiting a long time for me and was getting nervous that I wasn't going to show...BTW...I've NEVER ditched anyone like that...But she pulls that shit ALL the time! Like it's ok 'cause she has dementia now right? I tell her I'm sorry but I got held up on the phone...She says, "Well, at least you can't blame your father anymore," WTF??? I was so pissed off I said, "Neither can you...So cut the shit!"

    Far too often, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, people write off anxiety and depression because they can't see it. I want you to always know that you are worthy, and always will be.

    #12 I didn't know it was classified as such @David B. Grinberg, I just learned something new today! I know employers aren't supposed to discriminate but I'd be very fearful of sharing this during an interview (well it's all public knowledge now) since I have been sharing it online ;-) But, I would fear if I did share it they would just find another reason and never admit that my illness is the reason I didn't get the job. It's very true, looks can be very deceiving- I've met others with this affliction and they are high functioning. A person can never tell by looking at a person but some are quick to judge after they know. Thank you for your well wishes, appreciated!

    #11 If China doesn't recognize any mental illness (gah, I hate that term) as legitimate then the stigma is worse. At least we have Dr's who understand, care and do search for the newest of treatments available. Counselors too. Sometimes it's a crap shoot depending on your insurance and the area one lives in. I have been lucky because I have a very progressive Dr who is constantly going to conferences to learn about the newest research and a Therapist who has more Certs than the average (again, considering my area too). Acupuncture, I've read that people do use it but it doesn't last, it's not a cure. However, I guess if someone could afford it @Dean Owen it wouldn't hurt to get that along with other therapies. Thanks for suggesting!

    #9 Hi @Steve Brady, I'm sorry you've suffered too from it. Very creative, "How bloody awful GAD it is." Wow, that could be used as part of a campaign to end the stigma! You also wrote, I'm discovering more of who I really am, and how for years I had conformed but stifled my own soul." I heard through EMDR I may just begin to discover much more about myself and I look forward to that too. Thank you very much for sharing and feel free to PM me anytime as well!

    #11 @Dean Owen, while I'm not sure acupuncture is a cure all for GAD and depression, you nonetheless strike an important chord about medicine. That is, Chinese medicine has been around for THOUSANDS of years -- whereas American medicine has been around for about only 241 years. That's a major disparity that should speak volumes. The saying "ancient Chinese secret" exists for a reason.
    I recommend reading, "Between Heaven and Earth" for those who want to learn more about Chinese medicine https://www.amazon.com/Between-Heaven-Earth-Chinese-Medicine/dp/0345379748

    Bravo, Lisa, for standing up and speaking out about a critically important mental health issue in need of more understanding and empathy. You are 100% correct: most people think if someone "looks okay" then everything must be fine. They can't comprehend the helplessness of a hidden disability or invisible impairment. But anxiety disorder is in fact classified as a "targeted disability" under Title I of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Targeted disabilities are defined as the most severe impairments. Under the ADA, it's unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees/applicants due to mental health conditions.
    This all just proves once again that "looks" are indeed superficial and one can't always "judge a book by its cover." The USA needs mental health parity ASAP because mental suffering equates with physical suffering, regardless of whether it's visually apparent or not. Take it one day at a time, Lisa. Everything will get better, keep the faith!

    I suspect the "stigma" is far worse in countries like China where understanding and social acceptance of GAD may be quite primitive. I really have no idea, but I suspect many in China would look to acupuncture as a possible treatment, and I suspect acupuncture could work to allay many of the symptoms but perhaps is not a long term solution. Have you considered acupuncture?

    #7 Thank you for your wise words @Jim Cody! I never felt so nervous before hitting the publish button! I almost deleted this post today but thought hey, if it helps to be honest and keep spreading the word(s), then I will leave it up. It makes a person feel very vulnerable when posting something this deep. As you stated the stigma will continue as long as they classify 'brain illnesses' as Mental instead of reclassifying them as a Medical Condition and it's very true, unless a person has experienced any Mental Condition, they can't phantom how terminal this can feel when one is at their lowest, which includes what it does to the physical body. I won't even mention where the brain tends to go when people hit their lowest but it's real. Thanks again!

    @Lisa Gallagher , good on you for having the guts to write this buzz. You have let your readers know just how debilitating, pervasive, and just bloody awful GAD is. The social ramifications you describe add to the woes. If you ever want to PM and swap notes about things that have helped please feel free. No worries if you'd rather not. It's ironic, but through my own journey, I'm discovering more of who I really am, and how for years I had conformed but stifled my own soul. I hope your journey to healing continues to reveal the real and powerful @Lisa Gallagher!

    @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher A great post that took guts to pen. The stigma that the world puts on mental illnesses is unfair and will always be until the government and the medical insurance companies put it on par with physical illnesses.
    It's such a tragedy that people look down on those that suffer from anxiety and depression. Once you suffer from a mental illness only then you realize the impact it has on your world.
    "Every year, about 42.5 million American adults (or 18.2 percent of the total adult population in the United States) suffers from some mental illness, enduring conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia." ~Newsweek

    Our "core interests" is a line-extension product of our past core skills.You can also determine your safe path based on both.When engaging in a new client deal your whole approach should stem out of both.Don't tie your approach up to your core skills in specific projects because this can elevate your imagination and get get you regressed into the narrow function of a project manager, but instead tie yourself up to both in order to succeed in relationship management.Such project relationship with your clients is not a sure way to build profitability than marriage is a sure way to achieve personal happiness.So focusing on your core interests and on what you are passionate about is a sure way for your success as a a line -extension product,you only need to give it some more energy.Thank you @Don Kerr for sharing your wisdom.Great things are always line-extensions of our good things of the past.
