I can't imagine a way for a time-centric collective of events (the corporeal body and brain) to transcend the time-centric nature of itself. Even
psychics don't really do that. Not even the real ones.
What they do is tap into the environmental residual information collective and unconsciously pick out data that allows them to calculate the likely
trajectory of a specific circumstance that has yet to resolve. Let's say that a train will be running on a stretch of tracks, and the informational
continuum contains the fact that there is severe deterioration within the mechanism that controls the switching along that stretch of tracks, and has
been neglected for quite a while. No one knows this, but the fact that this deterioration exists is a fact that does exist within the whole
information continuum, and if accessed, that fact would be key to being able to predict that an accident is not only likely, but possibly imminent -
given a specific set of contributing factors (extremely low temperature or other environmental stresses, a fast moving passenger train rattling the
unit housing one last time to cause the unit to fail, a freighter scheduled to be in the vicinity at a specific moment that allows that unit's
failure to put it on a collision course with the next passenger train - all facts collecting within the environmental information collective -
informational continuum - and available for a brain that is capable of accessing it as if reading it off a blackboard.
The data is translated by the psychic's conscious brain, often a little garbled but sometimes quite clearly, and the brain itself does what a
baseball outfielder does with the trajectory of a fly ball - it tracks that trajectory and predicts where that trajectory will end. In the case of
the baseball outfielder, he makes sure his glove intersects that ball's trajectory. In the case of the psychic, he/she calls the railroad dispatch
and tries to get someone to shut down the rail line so that an accident doesn't happen.
Neither is transcending the impact of time. Both are simply using the data available to calculate the impact of time on a clearly defined trajectory
of progressive events.
No, we can't train our minds to ignore time, but we can train our minds to become aware of ways of accessing residual information, and to learn how
to calculate causal trajectories in order to better predict where those trajectories will intersect with our own trajectories. That's even better
than ignoring time. That's working with time.
