United in Energy

United in Energy

This article has been edited and updated

Something of great significance occurred in January 2017.  I’m referring to the declassification of CIA documents. Among the documents declassified were those relating to the controlled studies of the mind-reading and mind-bending feats of a certain Uri Geller. And would you believe it, his powers were validated in strict laboratory conditions. And so it is prudent to review this subject again, that of extra-sensory perception (ESP) and psychokinesis (PK) which denote the ability to read minds and perceive things at a distance (remotely) and effect minds and things at a distance, respectively.

Fast forward to 2016 when a talented physicist named Dean Radin convincingly showed that human consciousness can shift matter from its energy equivalent (wave state) into physicality – the stuff that you and I can see, feel and touch. This was achieved by individual subjects remotely (at a distance) influencing a classical quantum double-slit experiment. In other words, human consciousness has co-creatorship properties – we create physicality from energy!

This should be seen in conjunction with research performed in 2015 when co-operating physics laboratories in Australia and Japan demonstrated conclusively that an entangled pair of photons (two entities connected in accordance with quantum physics principles) manifest evidence of being connected to each other, independent of time and space. Manipulating one of them resulted in an instantaneous change in the parameters of the partner, several thousand kilometres away! Add to this Radin’s remote influence of human consciousness and we begin to appreciate a whole new dimension of energy-matter interaction bridged by human consciousness.

Let’s get back to Uri Geller. To move an object remotely or to bend it requires energy. Additionally therefore, we have to conclude that human consciousness has the intrinsic potential for converting some undefined source of energy into a usable form. The next challenge is to define what state of mind/consciousness is optimal for success in this remote physical influence.

EEG studies as well as fMRI observations indicate that success in ESP and PK activity occurs in the Alpha frequency range of the EEG. This frequency is associated with a chilled state of mind or a meditative state. When subjects were taught through biofeedback to establish more Alpha activity they became more successful with ESP and PK outcomes. Individuals with increased frequencies in the Beta range are usually anxious and have lower levels of ESP and PK success.

fMRI studies indicate that the right hemisphere is the area of the brain that has more success in ESP and PK. The right hemisphere is the place of big picture sensitivity, intuition, trust, creativity, emotional connectivity and out-of-the-box thinking. The right hemisphere is suppressed by the dominant left hemisphere. The left hemisphere is all about linear function - planning, calculating, categorizing, speech and so forth. Interestingly if there is damage to the left hemisphere (fronto-temporal lobes) the right hemisphere is ‘released’ from left hemisphere dominance and the individual gains big picture sensitivity, creativity and enhanced intuition as well as greater success with ESP and PK. This can be done artificially by temporarily suppressing left hemisphere function, using trans-cranial stimulation.

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. They also have the lowest success in ESP and PK activity. Conversely, those who are chilled, calm, sensitively connected to the bigger picture and are creative (oxytocin types), are the ones that have the greater success in ESP and PK.

I would propose therefore that in place of an array of mirrors focusing the sun on a central tower for heat energy generation and in place of an array of photo-electric cells, we rather recruit an army of intuits to focus heat energy on a central tower at a given location. And since the influence of consciousness is remote (non-localized) our intuit recruits can contribute from anywhere in the universe.

A final word

It became very significant for me when I came upon the work and philosophies of the highly respected physicist, Sir James Jeans. For here was a physicist who had arrived at a point of recognition of the influence of human consciousness upon the extended environment - a position derived from first principles. Here are a few quotes from interviews with the man (excerpts from Wikipedia):

The stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the Universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter... we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter.

— James Jeans in The Mysterious Universe.

In an interview published in The Observer (London), when asked the question "Do you believe that life on this planet is the result of some sort of accident, or do you believe that it is a part of some great scheme?", he replied:

I incline to the idealistic theory that consciousness is fundamental, and that the material universe is derivative from consciousness, not consciousness from the material universe... In general the universe seems to me to be nearer to a great thought than to a great machine. It may well be, it seems to me, that each individual consciousness ought to be compared to a brain-cell in a universal mind.

What remains is in any case very different from the full-blooded matter and the forbidding materialism of the Victorian scientist. His objective and material universe is proved to consist of little more than constructs of our own minds. To this extent, then, modern physics has moved in the direction of philosophic idealism. Mind and matter, if not proved to be of similar nature, are at least found to be ingredients of one single system. There is no longer room for the kind of dualism which has haunted philosophy since the days of Descartes.

— James Jeans, addressing the British Association in 1934, recorded in Physics and Philosophy.

The inescapable truth is that we and all other physical entities span the physical-energy divide and this divide is bridged by the phenomenon of consciousness. In this way we are all connected and have been, since the beginning of time. And as we evolve and develop ourselves, we are contributing to the evolving, connected, energy collective and at the same time are influenced by its eternal flux. We are, each one of us, unique co-creators and at the same time, holograms of all that is. We and our entire collective environment are manifestations of the zeitgeist  of the moment!

Thought provoking post from the wisest (and only) brain mechanic I know. Timely for me, because, as you know, Ian, I’m currently travelling in Java with many of my Indo family who virtually all swear by some form of ‘magic’. This would appear to include ESP, but not so sure about the PK bit. Never mind Yuri Geller’s spoons, this concept is too ‘mind bending’ for this straight line loving, curve averse, left hemisphere driven, dumb engineer, but there again .....
By the by, I’m sure you won’t need to scratch too far beneath the surface, while on your forthcoming Bali trip, to find some interesting old ‘practitioners’ of various arts we might label as occult in our typical cold scientific, ‘hear no evil, see no evil’, ‘prove it or remove it’, western logic. 👺

#23 I most certainly will give the IONS community your regards, @Ian Weinberg - And I just received an email that Ervin Laszlo is on the ticket. You might want to keep in mind the Big 50th anniversary is on the near horizon (4/5 years) which might be worth a well-planned trip to the Bay Area.... or a presenter spot! I was actually in talks to help with the capital campaign associated with all the goings-on, so nothing more definitive until early 2020 after this year's conference is done and dusted.

Finally, you couldn't be more right about the mechanistic trap - so many people who believe they are intelligent are practicing and defending pseudo-science. I wonder have they ever simply realized that we have to invent the tool to measure consciousness before we start applying skeptical standards?

I call it the measurement fallacy - the researchers just keep going downward and further right in decimal precision - meanwhile so many humans are suffering and dying who could be helped if the lawyers and accountants weren't in control of medical decisions. I hope things aren't nearly as chaotic in ZA, because the answer over here is that the health insurance middlepersons are who needs to be sued for medical malpractice.

Luckily, I lived a life where I kept myself off the wares they are peddling. It takes a clear mind these days to not get sidetracked by all the hate and figure out how to live with all the toxins and pollution industrialization has bequeathed us.

#21 Thanks for the valuable contribution @Deb Helfrich I personally believe that the mechanistic hole that medical science has dug for itself is laying bare its insufficiencies. Inquiring and reflecting minds are coalescing into a more authentic and inclusive science-philosophy movement which is gaining momentum. Simply, a science which narrows down its substrate to controllable and manageable mechanistic parameters at the exclusion of other less defined and inconvenient variables (such as consciousness) devolves into pseudo-science. Please give my regards to Dean Radin and Rupert Sheldrake at IONS.

Fascinating post @Ian Weinberg...I think you would find the work of Dr. Steven Greer equally as such...

PT2: It took a synthesis of the full PNI suite plus some blog data from NASA scientists responsible for keeping humans alive off the surface of the earth, etc, etc. Bruce, Candace Pert - YOU, plus my detailed philosophy training and research on consciousness. Thanks for so freely sharing your expertise. Real humans can achieve real results if they think philosophically about cutting edge research - that because of the lawyers and accountants is very slow to be used in actual medical environments.

So as a philosopher two of the men I spent a lot of time with killed some very sacred cows - Nietzsche asserted god was dead. Arthur Danto asserted Art was dead. And I can see & prognosticate the death of Western medicine in the near future. (and fears of the technological singularity right along with it...) These grand philosophical assertions simply mean that, of course, humans continue to believe, create art, and need medicine - it is just that the research is now so specified, so niched, and most scientists won't spend a moment to listen to a humble :) philosopher like me to try to SYNTHESIZE a lot of knowledge into WISDOM that can emerge strategies to help humans think about how they think about the medical care they receive in order to help living humans in the near future.

Glad to see you bringing this back to the forefront, @Ian Weinberg, and glad you cross-posted on LI. First things first, I am going to the IONS conference this summer! Mostly for the pre-con workshop on Biofield Science. https://www.chi.is/chiprecon2019/
"I Don't End Here."

I do hope to chat with our buddy Dean, but I am going to get a chance to chat with Bruce or Lissa.

From Einstein on forward a significant portion of the celebrated scientists turn humanitarians or spiritualists when their scientific endeavors fail to give them any human lifetime 'comfort.' There is no there there in the theoretical realm; as I would describe it. And we all need some sort of meaning of life to inform our behaviors, goals, dreams, and relationship dynamics.

Honored to know you, Ian!

Here is my avant garde philosophical hypothesis to the research question you asked:

"Additionally therefore, we have to conclude that human consciousness has the intrinsic potential for converting some undefined source of energy into a usable form. The next challenge is to define what state of mind/consciousness is optimal for success in this remote physical influence. "

I got a good idea of both what the undefined source of energy is and what brain state is required. The clue is in my comment. I suspect only you and I grok it. But the honest truth is that I needed to learn how to harness it to deal with my own chronic illnesses. I did it experimentally and experientially then got to philosophizing about what I accomplished.
