No thing can appear to separate itself from itself and be divided and then long to be whole again. When it is divided it believes in finite things and identifies itself as finite - it has concepts of death - it fears not being until it realizes that it is not being and being (all that is).
Clinical death is the medical term for cessation of blood circulation and breathing, the two necessary criteria to sustain human and many other organisms' lives. It occurs when the heart stops beating in a regular rhythm, a condition called cardiac arrest.
Stopped blood circulation has historically proven irreversible in most cases. Prior to the invention of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), defibrillation, epinephrine injection, and other treatments in the 20th century, the absence of blood circulation (and vital functions related to blood circulation) was historically considered the official definition of death. With the advent of these strategies, cardiac arrest came to be called clinical death rather than simply death, to reflect the possibility of post-arrest resuscitation. For medical purposes, it is considered the final physical state before permanent death.
At the onset of clinical death, consciousness is lost within several seconds. Measurable brain activity stops within 20 to 40 seconds. Irregular gasping may occur during this early time period, and is sometimes mistaken by rescuers as a sign that CPR is not necessary. During clinical death, all tissues and organs in the body steadily accumulate a type of injury called ischemic injury.
All that said, this thread is about science and its application to the "afterlife." A subject which I find extremely interesting, but one that is rife with division and extreme polarization.
Science has become an industry of sorts hasnt it?
"...the Illuminati eventually controlled the science departments in all colleges and institutions of higher learning. The plan was to stifle scientific knowledge and then twist what was left to fit the science they wanted the people to believe.

Examples of DEATH
birth, life, and eventual death

People around the world mourned his death.
The accident resulted in two deaths.
The number of deaths from cancer is rising.

Death could be seen lurking in the corner of the painting.
the action or fact of dying or being killed; the end of the life of a person or organism: I don't believe in life after death | an increase in deaths from skin cancer | [ as modifier ] : a death sentence.
• the state of being dead: even in death, she was beautiful.
• the permanent ending of vital processes in a cell or tissue.
• ( Death ) [ in sing. ] the personification of the power that destroys life, often represented in art and literature as a skeleton or an old man holding a scythe.
• [ in sing. ] the destruction or permanent end of something: the death of her hopes.
• informal a damaging or destructive state of affairs: to be driven to a dance by one's father would be social death.
Death is the cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Phenomena which commonly bring about death include biological aging (senescence), predation, malnutrition, disease, suicide, murder and accidents or trauma resulting in terminal injury. Bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death. There is no scientific evidence that suggests consciousness survives the death of an organism.
Parapsychological evidence suggests that the polarization you observe runs deeper than mere opinion.
If so, then the polarization has to settle down in order to scientifically explore the psi anomaly. But that can't happen until the rules of science change. That, in turn, can't happen under this polarized atmosphere. Catch-22.
A mind control tool perhaps may be a little more accurate...
Or perhaps the polarizations need to become more extreme, so that the manifestations of the anomaly become undeniable. Maybe even both at the same time, or neither.
Either, both, or neither way.. I think we can attempt to explore it and measure it even if it takes innovation in the field of measurement and an increased awareness of possibilities. Figuring those parts out will just require participation and motivation, and perhaps a bit of divine inspiration.
Sure, we can attempt to model it and tinker with the models as the defenders of the dominant paradigm fling poo. And we can leave our skulls and explore through mysticism. But one thing we can't do - we can't institutionalize psi for very long. Where psi goes the trickster goes, and the trickster is anti-structure. Without institutionalization, we can't objectively get to the bottom of psi, assuming there is a bottom.
I think that mind control may come as a "side effect" in the pursuit of profitability.
However, I feel that as we delve deeper into these new technologies, that self-sufficiency and independence will come as a matter of course. Though, having systems in place to take care of common needs like infrastructure is just an efficient and focused way to go about it.
The massive amount of (cited) evidence says otherwise...
You MUST go outside of mainstream academia sources in order to see what is really happening here.
The below signature quote is just one example.
How would you be able to tell?
How would you be able to tell?
Thats the question, isnt it? Its what we have been talking about all along.
There is a massive amount of evidence that states forms of mind control are not used as a means to gain money and power?
Would you mind sharing it? Im not sure how you could have evidence of something not happening.
Yeah. The answer is you wouldn't be able to tell. The experimenter psi-effect will preserve a balance, giving each side an 'out'.
My point is that there is plenty of room for evidence of a genuine anomaly. There is lots of evidence, such as that in the OP. A fair-minded skeptic would see that. But there isn't room for a united humanity and an enlightened science to prove it to every man, woman, and child in a way they can't possibly reject. There has to be room for both belief and disbelief in the psychic backdrop, and so expectations of definitive "proof" or a tangible mechanism that no one can deny are unrealistic. At least, not until everyone is enlightened. But then we wouldn't need science.
I don't mind at all...
Side affects typically are accidental.
What I alluded to is anything BUT accidental.
My only concern is that it may stray a bit too far from the threads topic...
I left a couple of links in the previous post that link to quite a bit of detailed information on the subject.
Whether you recognized it or not, you used math terms to describe this interaction (divided, separate, whole). The above could be turned into an equation. Whether or not it is useful in application is another story. Actually turning this into an equation may be difficult if you are not good with math, though. And it would be difficult for others to do it for you, since only you know your perspective.
The above could be called the "mechanism" by which the universe "interacts." How this happens is what we implement in technology, including the computer you are using right now.
Zero appears as one.
There is nothing but it appears to be something.
Is that what you are getting at?
There is only what is here but there seams to be someone knowing something - that is the illusion.
This is actually nothing appearing to happen.
