While I am not asserting this as a truth that should be credited or discredited, I think it might be something to ponder about.
This thread is about the psychic capabilities of human psyche; the relation between consciousness and subconsciousness. Normally, subconsciousness is
considered to be a part of human psyche, the one that lays below the conscious level of human recognization and willful observation of surrounding
Furthermore, this thread explores the possibility whether our mind can perceive "weak signals" of surrounding reality. By "weak signals" I mean
impulses or stimulus that bypass conscious observation, but could still be picked up and interpret by our subconsciousness.
First chapter, the capacity of human sensory organs.
In sciences that focuses on neuropsychology and -physiology, itis suggested that human sensory organs (eyes, ears, skin, nose and mouth) are capable
of receiving very delicate information; about eyes, it has been suggested that it is capable of perceiving a change in a single photon:
The human eye is very sensitive but can we see a single photon? The answer is that the sensors in the retina can respond to a single photon.
However, neural filters only allow a signal to pass to the brain to trigger a conscious response when at least about five to nine arrive within less
than 100 ms. If we could consciously see single photons we would experience too much visual "noise" in very low light, so this filter is a
necessary adaptation, not a weakness.
While I apologize that I for the moment am unable to provide more specific links, I would like to mention that I have also read this information from
a recent publication of Neuropsychology. So at least on my mind, it can be established that our sensory organ are able to pick up and react on very
weak stimulus that can escape conscious observation. Yet, some of these signals might be picked up and registered by our subconsciousness.
Second chapter, the link between clairvoyance and -audience with the subconscious.
In a moments of deep concentration (like meditation and focusing) or perhaps dreaming - which is said to be the condition, where subconscious
organizes daily events in it's preferable order - then these weak signals can surface into the consciousness; perhaps it can happen in form of mental
realization or even in a form of vivid images, visions. Also, from personal experience I can tell it can happen as clairaudience.
Please note, that in order to protect privacy of other people, I won't mention names and I've changed the date in following example:
Here I shall share an personal experience. Almost a year ago, when I was laying on a couch in quite deep state of relaxation and was certainly not
thinking anything, I heard an audible voice (I think it was coming from within) saying a date that included day and a month (for example "fourteenth
of june"), nothing else. I was surprised because there was nobody around that could've said that as I was alone in the appartment. Back then, I
didn't share this with my companion, as I thought that it could've been some sort of imaginary thing.
Nevertheless, time passed and the date was approaching and I couldn't just forget it. I kept thinking myself that what could it mean, date of my
death perhaps? So it happened that my companion left for a trip of few days around that date. Since we have two cats in our household, and I was
thinking that I could die, so I put lots of food and water for them around our home, so they don't have to suffer of hunger in case something should
happen to me. Well, obviously nothing happened, as I am here and writing this. Yet something happened: Namely, my brother's companion gave birth to a
healthy child on that very date; but the birth took place about 3 weeks earlier than it was supposed to.
When my companion came back from her trip, she saw the extra catfood and water laying around our place and asked me about it, I told the whole thing.
But since then, I became very interested about the issue of clairaudience and -voyance.
Third chapter, the conclusions.
Due my own experience and what I've learned since from various sources, I have become into understanding that it could be our unconsciousness which
is capable of observing the 'weak signals' around us. In my case, I must've seen the 'weak signals' of birth in my brother's companion - but it
puzzles me that it was like 4 mounths earlier when I heard the date, and yet the birth itself took place 3 weeks earlier that it was supposed to.
In case of precognitive dreams this is most likely what happens. The unconsciousness 'reveals' something to us. With what logics, I really cannot
I must emphasize that this is merely my experience and understanding of this matter. Someone else might have totally different conception and it might
be as 'sincere' as what has just been presented.
In the end, I'd like to invite people to the conversation in order to inquire this matter. Whether you think that these 'capabilites' derive from
God or Satan, aliens or whatever, I would appreciate the input if it is reasonable.
All the best,
