I assure you that I am quite familiar to these lines of thought. The saying is that people only use 10% of their brain, not 5%, but even that 10% is a misunderstanding. People use every part of their brain but at different times. Some will use their brains more efficiently and diversely but that's more strongly associated with higher intelligence and creativity than paranormal phenomena.
It always blows me away when I encounter thinking that seems to place humanity at the top of control of some holographic universe type of idea in any form of governance capacity. Really, when you think about it, that idea is nearly the same idea as God bequeathing the world to our care from Genesis but just laden with various degrees of science and pseudoscience and taking the whole universe instead of just the planet we inhabit. In reality, we are but a speck on a speck of a planet circling about a speck of a sun in an universe so enormous that our minds, no matter how well utilized, cannot even grasp it. And that's if there is only one universe.
Sorry if I seem a little acidic but I went through the whole brain entrainment crap when I was a child. Thing is, I was born this way and my great grandmother sure as hell didn't need it.
This happened to me about 5 years ago:
I was sitting in the sunroom of my house meditating. I noticed a fly buzzing against the window, as flies often do, as if trying to escape the house. Having recently read about the law of attraction and being in a meditative state, I opened the door and tried to send thoughts to the fly to leave through the door. It continued buzzing against the window. So I put my hand out and sent thoughts for the fly to land in my hand so that I could take it outside. I waited a bit, but nothing happened. It just kept buzzing against the window. So I returned to my meditation and let it be. But then...
I was watching TV about 2 hours later, after sundown. I was sitting on the couch with my arm on the armrest. Suddenly a fly landed on the armrest. At first I tried to shoo it away, and it did not move, but then I remembered my experiment from earlier. I gently placed my hand against the edge of the armrest, palm facing up. The fly then crawled off the armrest, onto my hand, and came to rest in the center of my palm.
My heart was racing, I couldn't believe it. So I stood up and made the 50 foot walk to the same door of the sunroom. Opened it, put my hand outside, and the fly flew away.
I rarely tell this story because I feel that no one will believe me. But this thread was too perfect not to. This experience was life changing, as it confirmed to me that psychic power/the law of attraction is a very real phenomenon. I don't know if put thoughts in the "mind" of the fly, or if the universe was simply reflecting my intentions. I don't really expect or care if anyone believes me, as I know it happened and it has led me deeper into thought experimentation and meditation, forever.
