We are all capable of extra-sensory and extra human functions -
How can humans perform "extra human" functions? Anything a human could perform would be a human function. And what is an "extra sensory"
function? And who cares whether it was written about for years? We have written about super-heros for years also but it's not proof that they exist.
Good point - "extra human" sounds like an oxymoron but it has to do with semantics and what we currently believe "human" means.
The typical idea of what a human is has to do with old ideals like Decartes' "I think therefore I am." We think of ourselves as beings who are
individual and thinking on our own.
About the extra human thing - I study and perform extra-sensory experimentation. I have a Master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology and research in
this area is something I focus on. Here's an example of a study that was performed during a research class.
I sat in one room and another person sat in another room, both connected to EEG and GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) devices. I was shown an object (a
brass chime with bowl-shaped top) which the other person could not see, as she was in another room the whole time. I connected with her mentally,
which caused a very high peek in both the EEG Theta waves and a change in GSR, measured at the same second on both of our graphs. I projected an image
to her of the chime (after 1 minute plus a random number of seconds between 1-2 minutes, on cue). We waited one more minute then someone went to get
her. We hid the object.
When she came back into the main experiment room the instructor asked if she got any image. She said she saw an old brass bowl with some sort of
writing on it. The top of the chime was indeed an old brass bowl with Sanscrit writing on it! Pretty darn accurate.
The interesting part was that she felt a change in her body energy, also exhibited by the changes in the GSR and EEG, the moment I connected to her.
This is extra-human in most peoples' definition of what humans do.
Is this published? No... for several reasons: the establishment is not ready to accept things like our study, only 7 people witnessed it, it was only
done between 4 people over all during one 10-week quarter of work. It is not reproduceable on an ongoing basis with just anyone - you need two
psychics. Did this happen? Yes.
I can prove psychic ability but it will take more than this. It will take video tapes of the devices, a protocol for naming psychic ability and how it
will be accepted and perceived in our society. So the reason I shared this is that we can expect this sort of thing to keep going, to be shared, to be
denied, and ultimately accepted by all as common sense.
