I am interested in this 'alien hand syndrome.' The video you provided was terrifying and corny, but doesn't it sound similar to those familiar
cases of spirit possession? I wonder at the effectiveness of engaging this other 'foreign' part of the consciousness by some occult manner, and
then either expel it, or compelling it to submission - sort of like an exorcism (just like it, actually). I'd like to give this a try. Perhaps
disease or unhealthy mutation of the cell-tissue would respond similarly.
One theory is that Mind, being the epicenter of consciousness of the entire organism, and in the event of disease, must exert some specific amount of
will-power, or psychic (mental) energy, so as to compel the cellular tissue to behave in accordance with its function, as the cell's consciousness,
while although limited, is endowed by the consciousness and vital life force of the very being it composes. As such, it is a sort of microcosm of the
organism, and reflects a state of imbalance that may be rooted in the consciousness of the organism.
This train of thought leads me to think of Christian Science. The underlying belief in this sect is as follows: The Creator looked at his Creation
and said, 'it's all good.' Thus, pain, suffering, imbalance and disease are but illusions masking the true nature of reality, which is one of
love, peace, balance and harmony. Christian Scientists thus believe that should some dis-ease become manifest, it is but truly a manifestation of a
lack of spiritual understanding at some level of the consciousness. Being that we are endowed with the same creative abilities as God itself (having
made us in it's image), it must follow that we are endowed with the consciousness of this being as well, and may re-manifest (or unfold) the Divine
Reality of Peace, love, etc., from the illusion of suffering - if we will entertain mental states that are in harmony with the vibrations of this
In short, their form of 'prayer' consists in reorienting thought patterns (and consciousness itself) from that of suffering, to that of love, which
is the great panacea.
While I am not a Christian Scientist, I have read various testimonials regarding their healings, and I believe them to be nothing short of miraculous.
However, I am aware of various tragedies that have befell some of the 'die-hard' fundamentalists of this sect, who, for instance, refusing to give
their children medicine on account of their belief that God will heal their afflictions, end up getting arrested for child-abuse due to their kids
dying over some common ailment that would have been treatable by a physician.
My view is that a person should explore all methods of treatment that are available, and while mental healing and prayer have their merits, physicians
are valuable for a reason - and not just because they can prescribe vicodin.
