Winged Wolf has made a valid point, but the manner in which he expressed it stinks to high heaven...
There are a significant number of "experts" (in the parasciences) who claim that most (if not all) people are born
with the potential...But
being raised within a society that gradually suppresses the power & disdains practicing to reach that potential; Most people who show any signs of
having mental powers usually manifest as prophetic dreams, gut-level "hunches" & epiphanies; Only a very few (And many others with false claims &
use of parlor tricks) can actually display any significant ability. With normal upbringing, the ability gradually stagnates & "dies" (medical term:
atrophy). However, the potential
remains & can be "exercised" back up to usable levels with education, patience & practice. The downside is
that there's not enough paranormal research being conducted that can adequately "educate" people on how to regain that potential & only certain
(mostly) secretive groups seem to possess some of the (usually incomplete) knowledge & the practice can take years (or the student may never
There've been many reports of how certain drugs can temporarily activate & stimulate the pineal gland (Which is said to be the source of the psychic
power & most commonly referred to as the "third eye") but the use of such drugs do more harm than good in the long run. Some of those drugs have
been mentioned here already, but most (if not all) of them will create long-term health problems.
The most feasable way to use a drug to activate the pineal gland & then practice while under the influence so that the user can eventually "wean"
themselves from the drug as they become more aware of conscious use of their power...BUT the safest
way to do so would be to learn what drugs
can activate the pineal gland. The most effective
such drug would be perhaps a certain mix of vitamins & herbs that are also known to promote
good health while it works on the pineal gland. The best way to figure out which such suppliments would do the job would be if some more research was
done on the pineal gland itself.
As of the last I've heard, paranormal sciences haven't yet even figured out how or why the pineal gland can be activated or used consciously
(subconsious use being like the "hunches, ephiphanies, etc. as mentioned above) with any kind of regular or consistant basis...Which would also mean
cooperation with the Genetic fields to conduct proper research. They'd also have to research potential problems with overstimulation of the pineal
gland, if only for safety's sake.
