While Persinger’s experiments could prove groundbreaking, he remains doubtful about his controversial findings reaching his colleagues, “I think
the critical thing about science is to be open-minded. It’s really important to realize that the true subject matter of science is the pursuit of
the unknown. Sadly scientists have become extraordinarily group-oriented. Our most typical critics are not are mystic believer types. They are
scientists who have a narrow vision of what the world is like.”
I find all of this fascinating, but this quote of his above, is of particular interest to me. I have been debating this point on more than one
thread, and on a thread that doesn't necessarily deal with the same topic as this one, but a topic closely linked. The member who created that
thread, even though I agreed with his information, insisted that any other information regarding what he had posted was scientifically disinformative,
while asserting only one science based viewpoint was possible. The way it relates is someone brought up telepathy in his thread and was treated as an
idiot--face palms, etc. In fact, that thread was also about AI computer interfaces to human brain, but using ELF, electric low frequency. He
asserted that electromagnetic fields were solely about voice to skull, but could not induce emotional states. Very happy to run across your research
and thread. I knew this was out there, but could not remember this particular scientist's name despite racking my brain the last two days and
looking for the research, so thank you.
But also, it becomes frustrating to debate science with people so close minded to what science really is intended to be, as stated in the quote
above. However, I am not very happy about where I believe this research has brought us, and what must of it is arising out of and how it has been
used for nefarious purposes for a very long time.
Remember in the olden days, when we used to have antennas on our TVs? And sometimes, when the reception was lousy, we'd go over and adjust them to
get better reception. But, we almost never got it right away. We had to fiddle with it a bit, and narrow down which directions would get us the best
reception. Why did we have to do that? Why not just grab the thing and move it to whatever position was best, in one try?
Ah! I got it! Because when we touched the antenna, the reception immediately got much better, even though we had not moved it yet. Why did it do that?
Because our bodies ARE antennas. We have thousands of miles of neural pathways, elegantly laid out inside ourselves, and not dependent on any special
wavelength measurements. We have all of them.
Personally, I believe our brains are not the seat of consciousness, but the receivers of it. And as we grow up, we are taught by others, which signals
are important and which are "imaginary". And we dutifully learn to filter out and/or ignore the ones that we are taught to.....sometimes quite
It is interesting to me, that just as many many astronomically aware mystical systems and legends tell us that 2012 is an important time of change for
the entire planet and all us humans, we just happen to be entering a section of our galaxy that scientists refer to as the photon belt...which is of a
greater energy than the space we usually proceed through. I wonder if WGOD or WUFO have upped their signal......
