Comments24/01/2017 #19 Ian Weinberg#17 Thanks @Max🐝 J. Carter Here is my info source, shared with Phil - https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP96-00791R000100480003-3.pdf24/01/2017 #18 Ian Weinberg#14 Here's what I have @Phil Friedman: (The physicists were Targ and Puthoff) - https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP96-00791R000100480003-3.pdf24/01/2017 #14 Phil Friedman#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!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.24/01/2017 #12 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#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! ;)24/01/2017 #11 Ian Weinberg#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.24/01/2017 #9 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsFascinating 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 FriedmanTrying 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!24/01/2017 #6 Lisa VanderburgFascinating 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.24/01/2017 #5 Praveen Raj GullepalliDoc, 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!24/01/2017 #3 David B. GrinbergNice 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.23/01/2017 #2 Max🐝 J. CarterI 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.23/01/2017 #1 Deb 🐝 HelfrichQuite 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.

Comments17/01/2017 #23 Zacharias Voulgaris 🐝Awesome article. I'd like to see follow-ups on this research with concrete strategies on how to make these ideas a reality.
I think politics also play a role in all this. Not just in the acdemic community, but also in relation to the sponsors of the research being done. If we take that factor into account too and find ways to not let add more biases, science could experience a rennaissance.17/01/2017 #16 Gerald Hecht#15 @Milos Djukic remember the story of the physicists whose manifesto against WWI ..allowed for continued collaboration...and later Einstein's cautionary letter to Franklin Roosevelt...some live their lives with a trained disciplinary perspective: "We never know what the future holds."
I have a different take: "We never know how the past will turn out."17/01/2017 #8 Anonymous#7 You are welcome @Phil Friedman Scientific research is a serious job that requires serious knowledge. This is not a game. The shaping of scientific truth is a process which can not take place at social media, but in research labs and research centers. Pseudoscience in is very dangerous for those who are naive.17/01/2017 #7 Phil Friedman#6 Thank you for the citation, Milos. I will read in detail and respond as appropriate. In the meantime, I caution others not to think that, because some scientists acknowledge that science is not "truth" but rather a process by which we seek to find truth, such scientists are thereby endorsing the empty claims of posers who pretend to have special direct access to, and be the sole conduits to such universal truth. For the scientists who are looking to improve the standards for doing and conveying scientific inquiry are not anti-science and are saying nothing of the sort. Cheers!17/01/2017 #5 Anonymous#4 @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, The shaping of scientific truth is a process. I started online Project on ResearchGate (part of NoE in Hydrogen Embrittlement) in 2016 (80+ members, 220+ followers, 2800+ reads, 40+ updates) as an extension of the former Hydrogen Embrittlement Mechanism Project on ResearchGate (2014) which was very successful and with an idea that the top experts in the field of hydrogen embrittlement and materials science come together and share valuable experiences about the current state of the art in hydrogen embrittlement. Numerous prestigious experts in the field of hydrogen embrittlement and materials science are the project participants. This Project is a part of "The Network of Excellence (NoE) in Hydrogen Embrittlement" that aims to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of hydrogen degradation of engineering materials and their co-evolution with science, materials science, industry and society, and also by addressing the fragmentation of European and Worldwide research in this area. The benefits of this network are available to all interested researchers, scientists, professionals and practitioners.17/01/2017 #4 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanImpressive share, @Milos Djukic. "Team science: A key problem is “scientists working competitively in silos without combining their efforts.” Collaborating with other groups means different ideas, different experiences, and different perspectives all come into play, reducing the risk of bias."
is an interesting statement giving me the impression scientific studies are not just the opinions of a few.

Comments02/12/2016 #41 Steve Brady#40 Dear Ali, thank you for your encouraging reply. Your thoughtful posts have certainly been a catalyst for fascinating discussion. If I may also encourage you: the way you genuinely interact with commenters on your posts is a blessing. You are gifted with the ability to articulate wisdom and at the same time engage with your readers to search for further wisdom.01/12/2016 #40 Ali Anani#39 @Steve Brady- amazing comment with its potential and practical examples.Led it and read it few times. Each time I ponder on this part "From my growing understanding of Fractal Perspectives it is from this state that we can see beautiful symmetries emerge and iterated patterns of coherent relationships emerge". Well, I see the patterns emerging when I read a comment by you. SOon, I am responding in a buzz to your very great comment.
While reading this comment you really got me curious to read your comment on my following buzz. I feel you have so much to add:
https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/two-illusions-don-t-make-a-fact#c1901/12/2016 #39 Steve Brady#33 Thank you, @Ali Anani. I too remain curious, as a life-long learner from published works, but also the "textbooks" of human beings in inter-relatedness. When I was trained in Restorative Justice, we were urged to interview thoroughly so as to aim for "no surprises". Thorough empathic conversations with affected parties is so often therapeutic in themselves, however, I am still amazed that every "circle" we formed in order to facilitate meetings between stakeholders, seemed full of potentialities...ranging from complex abreactions and fearful responses to wonderful unscripted reconciliations. One important key for me is that whenever people are gathered in community, even a private Restorative Justice meeting, is an open system, rather than a closed one. A second key that is important for me is to not fear "chaos". No one wants mayhem of course, but as I learned from reading "A Different Drum" by the late Dr M. Scot Peck, true community can emerge from the "chaos" of people feeling safe enough to lay down their facades and pretences, and be "real". From my growing understanding of Fractal Perspectives it is from this state that we can see beautiful symmetries emerge and iterated patterns of coherent relationships emerge. The lesson for me is to encourage potentialities, to be open and resist habitual control. Instead, be more like a true scientist, an explorer of truth. Herein lies the essence of respectful and powerful peace making.30/11/2016 #37 Ali Anani#35 Your snowball example is simply genius. I know you wrote this comment partly from your own experiences, dear @David Navarro López. What a lovely illustration this is! Yes, we have nor control on the path of the snowball. es, we may have no control over the stones that may change the trajectory of the snowball, but we may always try again. Like you said, an oak tree doesn't produce pears. I feel you may extend this to a great buzz. You added a new meannig o the behavior of snowballs. We always need a fresh start.30/11/2016 #36 Ali Anani#34 #34 Dear @David Navarro López- this is a gem and your observation struck me too to the bones "One thought it shocked me to the bones, is that the day I stopped looking for explanations, is the day I started understanding life". SOmetimes we get over-stressed trying to understand and by doing that we are actually reducing our ability to understand. When things become too complex to understand, this is the time to relax and only then we may think of new approaches, new ideas and new thinking. There are so many things in life that we still don't understand. That is why I introduced the term "passionate curiosity".30/11/2016 #35 Anonymous#32 Part 2 But one thing was clear to me. (Again, a Spanish saying) You can not expect pears from an oak. So in order to promote the best scenario for both bees and hives, the only way I have found which is always certain, is to influence every action and ideas coming out with the highest human values. Here is, and only here, where we can have a part of control and responsibility about how things are going to develope, but just at the initial stage. You love analogies, and I like to look at it as a snow ball rolling down a hill. One can't know how it's going to end, but if one makes a big ball of "positive snow" and throws it aiming it in the right direction, it is more than probable it will end as you wished. Or maybe not. And if not, we can not run down to the hill and try to put away the stones that modified the trajectory of the ball. The ball will go faster, and stones are countless. Much better, make a new ball and aim it differently. If you are lucky, you will succeed. If not, better keeping "enhancing the ball" (which is under your direct control) rather than loosing the time asking why, as we can't be in two places at the same time.30/11/2016 #34 Anonymous#32 Part 1 Dear Ali, you know I am very interested in human behaviour, and I have been digging on it in any possible way a long time. One thought it shocked me to the bones, is that the day I stopped looking for explanations, is the day I started understanding life. Because as you are pointing out, "Humans interact and ideas may become heavily populated and their growth may be limited by our capacity to fully comprehend them" The feedback to our actions (or ideas), the more reach they achieve, the more complex they become. Being a practical man as I am, and having in mind the mentioned interacting between bees and hives, I switched from trying to understand the process, to trying to provoke the process in a trend it suited the mutual benefit fo bees and hives, due to the unavoidable fact that our energies and capabilitiy of comprehension are far too limited to reveal the ultimate consequences that feedback might cause modeling and transforming the original inception of it.29/11/2016 #33 Ali Anani#22 9 @Steve Brady- your comment is a source of huge curiosity for me to find more from your experience ".what a thought provoking post. I have found many times that a simple, single social interaction, personal or virtual, can lead to pleasing complexities". Your examples shall be mind-provoking and I sincerely hope you share dew of them with us.29/11/2016 #24 Max🐝 J. Carter#23 Birthcontrol is cop out option in my opinion when the human is perfectly capable of exercising self discipline and i think a reworking of sex education focusing on why one should be selective from a deer understanding the effects could be more effective and reduce a lot of other issues .
I think of it as a modified. ttantra teaching n the schools covering the base concepts of why you respect the act no matter how pleasurable it is as something you do with responsibility and respect for yourself and your partner. All birth control does is allow us to continue to give in just because we can and it weakens self discipline in other areas of life.29/11/2016 #23 Mohammed Sultan#19 By birth control I mean putting a strategy aiming at raising per capita income with the same available resources and so too bettering people's health ,educational and job opportunities.I mean also giving people more chance to participate in public life.Simplicity is not also built on being alone ,isolating yourself from the current of events.If you have a vision and continuous and self-monitoring then you will realize that the simple formula about human development would be Sharing=Caring.29/11/2016 #22 Steve BradyWow @Ali Anani...what a thought provoking post. I have found many times that a simple, single social interaction, personal or virtual, can lead to pleasing complexities. I am a Restorative Practices and legal reform advocate. The human behavioural equation you include is very helpful. "Scripted" approaches that ignore or even suppress potentialities very often stifle the rich and deep Justice and healing that is possible between people and in communities.

Then I go to the other dimension of people studying effects of people looking at this effect and the words apophenia and pareidolia pop up. http://59ways.blogspot.ca/2012/01/apophenia-and-pareidolia_09.html This too can become way too outside the range of the layman, indeed the more one studies this, the more we begin to identify with the world that @Gerald Hecht and @Deb 🐝 Helfrich will readily understand, well beyond the mainstream.
What Milos does well in his comments is make a linkage between the creation of social networks and complex adaptive systems, which so far invariably brings me back to the one place where these linkages are studied at depth, which is namely the Sante Fe Institute and even then that Institute provides disclaimers between the work of individual researchers and its purpose. One such work is by Melanie Mitchell, called Complex Systems: Network Systems. http://www.santafe.edu/media/workingpapers/06-10-036.pdf
Even if there is a Seth Godin or Malcolm Gladwell type that can channel the work of researchers into mainstream insights, I recognize that complex adaptive systems explain much but the large body of business thinking is wired differently, so we can learn to see these thing but not get mainstream business folk to see what it is we have learned. That is what I see as "hidden" in fractal power, so I am still grappling with how best to make this invisible visible - otherwise we end up in complex thinking communicated as a specialty. Close24/09/2016 #104 🐝 Fatima WilliamsSo coming back reading this buzz is as @Donna-Luisa Eversley mentioned is beauty beyond measure and it's quality is simply profound.
I would love to agree with @Irene Hackett beautiful comment here as she shares my thoughts on this
" You, dear Ali are the "Fractal Power acting on systems (beBee) on organizing movement (of thoughts and ideas) ....so as to maximize their use of available resources." Your inspiration moves us, our thoughts & ideas beautifully colliding and taking new direction and shape - such as cannot be measured, but like a fractal coastline, when one looks close, such inspiration is much bigger than the senses can perceive"
As Milos says " Learning about fractals to me is more like absorbing and shaping of my perceptions "
The beauty of the object is in the hands and eyes of the maker and that beauty reflects that person inner beauty like that of the beautiful snowflake and the Fractals Forever beBee's who have the Fractal Power to organise, enrich and enlightened play a major role in avoiding the crowdedness of ideas.

This is a fractal buzz and by this I mean of beauty. The beauty of of your dedication, the beauty of your thinking and the beauty of your perspective to fractals. You wrote "Where the Fractals interface smoothly, they merge to form a seamless fabric of tangible, harmonic expression and being. Where they do not, there is Chaos". This requires deep thinking, but I love your saying how the intangible leads to the tangible.
I am so glad that I have my name mentioned in your beautiful post. Equally pleases I am as we both wrote about fractals today. See my friend how your buzz integrate with my buzz of today "The Fractal AMbassador" and you shall be pleased.
- Producer10/09/2016√1¼ + ½ = ϕThis little buzz was inspired by a BIG honey production by queen bee, Lada Prkic. Following is the link to her fantastic research paper. Either way please return to the little gem below.Lada Prkic's research paper "Geometry All Around Us"Thank you,...
Comments11/09/2016 #19 Lada 🏡 Prkic#18 You are right, Ben. I am just saying that these expressions of Φ are the solutions to quadratic equation Φ^ - Φ – 1 = 0.
Phi also occurs in geometry of a regular pentagon. Connecting all the points of the pentagon and forming 5-pointed star we have triangles with sides 1 and Φ, and angles of 36 (18), 54 and 108 (54) degrees.
Based on the relations between sides and angles of these triangles we have following expressions for Φ:
Φ = sin (54°) x 2 or cos (36°) x 2
Φ = 1/ (2 x sin 18°) or 1/ (2 x cos 72°)
Perhaps we can create a new hive about golden ratio, Fibonacci numbers and other related subjects. 😊10/09/2016 #16 Lada 🏡 PrkicDear Pinto, exact value of ϕ is (1+√5) / 2, i.e., 1.6180339887...... . This is the solution to quadratic equation ϕ^- ϕ -1=0 derived from specific ratio between two numbers a/b = (a+b)/a = ϕ
For more detailed explanation please see the link in the buzz http://mathworld.wolfram.com/GoldenRatio.html10/09/2016 #11 Ben Pinto#10 me too Paul. One year I made the math teacher a dealio "I will copy the math homework answers on the chalkboard for you, and in turn, I am excused from doing said homework." At the time I didn't realize that this manupulation was not really benefitting me, but was only Benny-fitting me.10/09/2016 #1 Ben Pinto@Lada 🏡 Prkic and those that commented on your amazing publication that I tributize here: @debasish majumder , @Ali Anani, @Dean Owen, @Aurorasa Sima, @Ken Boddie, and others @Milos Djukic, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD, @Christine Andola, and @Sara Jacobovici, @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, @Loribeth Pierson, @Donna-Luisa Eversley please tag this along or share to larger hives as you see fit. Thank you.

Comments18/11/2016 #112 Max🐝 J. CarterI dig the concepts @Milos Djkic. I am curious if you have studied digital to analog conversions?
I think of the binary expression of digital as the fractal beginning with the use of oct and hex to expand it into the analog. Behind the fractal design is where the chaos factor is. It's behind the fractal so to speak. I feel it is that chaos factor that is in the binary that on occasion switches it up at random to change the design that eludes us.
Who or what is making the random decision that changes the fractal design?
I tend to lean toward gyre theory which says simply stated that at the heart of the smallest subatomic particle is a singularity that works on a vortex. My theory that I can not prove or disprove s that there is a consciousness within the singularity.
It's the only thing that explains the chaos factor with anything that makes sense. for me.
