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. 👺

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.

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!

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.

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.

Thanks for that really interesting commentary Praveen. I guess the wisdom has been around for thousands of years and we're just re-inventing the wheel!

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.

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.
