In my opinion the answers to your questions are"
1)No, I don't think it is new at all. I think that these"abilities" were seen as other things in the past. At best it may have been viewed as magic or the work of prophets, at worst it was seen as whichcraft-puts an interesting spin on witches and worlocks doesn't it?
2)I also think the answer to this is no. I think that more people now feel free to discuss these issues without fear of attacks or being made fun of -please see my topic in Paranormal-what do you call this.
3)I think that may be in error also. We (the US) had remote viewing program(s), they have "officially" be closed down, but I think they just went deep underground. I can not prove this, but you don't stop something that works and or otherws are using successfully.
4)I think we need to get togather and hekp each other understand and control our abilities. I fully understand people not wanting to disclose this sort of thing, but if not for board like here then what?
1) Do you think this a relatively new phenomenon, or have there been throughout history reports of people having extraordinary abilities like the ones I described?
2) If this is not a new phenomenon, would you say that there seems to be a sharp increase in the amount of people who can do this in the modern era, or even in the last 25 years?
3) Does the Powers That Be take this seriously at all? I know that in Russia & China there have been extensive studies & training of these people. Why not in the West? Or is it going on and we don't know it?
4) Should people with these abilities stick together & form online/realtime support groups/communities, or is it better to remain scattered & not attract attention? Or should people with these abilities be "outing" themselves on public boards at all? Or am I being paranoid? Or am I not being paranoid?
I definately believe since I am one of them but I've been closing that off. It really causes problems between reality and sprituality.
Can you imagine how you would feel if you thought about an earthquake and then it happened and killed thousands of people? Would you wonder if you were psychic or if you actually did that? What if you thought about a hurricane and then there was one and it did billions in damage. Would you feel responsible just because you thought about it?
