what about if everyone was able to use them to their full potential at will and without restriction? What would the world be like? I think it would
create mass chaos. It would be like a weird dream that you had little control of. You could never be sure of anything. You might be driving along
the road and suddenly a whale appears in front of you! On the other hand perhaps if we all realised this potential we would all be so enlightened
that we would have no use for THIS physical world anymore?
Mytym, I have spent a lot of time pondering the questions you just presented, off and on over the last few years.
I think it all depends on how paranormal abilities are used in the beginning, (to forecast if down the road, they will be used for good or evil)
Let's compare Psi to Nuclear Energy. Will the Paranormal powers be used to help people like in the case of a Nuclear Energy, to warm homes and to
provide power and for research?, i.e., will the power of Psi/Pk be used to help people with healing, with remote viewing to find health problems, and
to get into the minds of the mentally ill to see what is going on inside, to RV for mines in war ravaged countries, so children, innocents and the
unsuspecting will not get hurt, Will Psi be used to find the missing, to telepathically communicate, to peer into the great unknown to discover more
ideas to benefit mankind?
Or, will the Paranormal be used for destructive purposes, as in the case of Nuclear weapons? Is Paranormal Power in fact being studied by the
government to be used in warlike purposes right now?
I believe the good of what Psi could be used for may outweigh the negative uses. But I am an optimist.
However, I don't believe the whole society at present is evolving towards this day where everyone will have Paranormal powers. Some people may be
evolving, while others are perhaps devolving. My theory is evolutionary change is dependent upon factors of stress, which if the stresses are large
enough and imposed upon an individual frequently, and also upon the descendents of the individual, that over time that will cause changes to occur at
the molecular level in the DNA of people to induce evolutionary changes.
If you look back upon the evolution of humans, humans (and animals too) evolved the most when they were in the most danger. People needed to develop
bigger brains to outwit their predators and develop ways to stay warm, they needed to learn to stand upright to be able to outrun the lions and
tigers. I look at people in general, living in Western civilizations today, and how easy many of them have it, (compared to their Neanderthal
ancestors), and I wonder without the stresses of the past, if many people have now been overindulged with all the wonders of a hi tech society, and
are too 'soft' to evolve and develop more defensive and intuitive abilities. So, you will find people evolving at different rates I believe. You
will have people who are the descendents of people with paranormal gifts, and the more they use their gifts..then the more their future descendents
will also evolve and grow stronger, if their growth also is not stymied. You will have people in countries like Africa and the Middle East under
great stresses gaining Paranormal abilities...but if there are religious or social restrictions which do not allow the people to practice these
abilities in the end they may not be realized. You will have people in free countries with Paranormal books to read and time to practice, and they
may also do well...but I am not sure if studying and practicing, will be enough to cause evolutionary changes at the DNA level in their
With great discipline monks have practiced and developed Psi skills, and ways to change the biological nature of their minds and bodies, without
necessarily inheriting these skills genetically, so Psi/Pk can be developed to different degrees through discipline and study alone. (However, I
don't know if there are recruiting policies for Monks, and if only paranormally inclined people are choosen as initiates? Or, are Monks allowed to
have children? And, if not, are children initiated into their monastry, close genetic relatives of exisiting Monks? If so, they could pass Psi
genetically along that way.)
And, there is another type of human being, who has self-evolved, and I believe has possibly changed their own DNA at a molecular/cellular levels, and
has developed different Paranormal/Psi/Psk (X men type) skills within their own life span, (without having to learn these paranormal abilities, or to
have these paranormal abilities genetically passed from predecessors), and I will talk more about this type of person later.
