That research has been tossed around to suggest all kinds of things.
That research is one piece of jigsaw puzzle that fits with other pieces to suggest that psychic functioning is probably insensitive to distance and
time. There is a part of us that transcends time and space by much more than a few moments. If you really wanted to, you could see that for yourself.
I absolutely believe in psychic functioning [...]
Really? Since when?

Since I was in my teens. I just don't believe in the open-endedness of it in the same manner than some others do. The human mind is not material, but
it is physical. Therefore, it's subject to the physical limitations that all physical manifestations are subject to. Of course, material
manifestations are subject to their own physical limitations, and many people equate physical only with material, and this is where it can get
confusing for them. The physics of the human mind is pretty easy, even if most folks try to make it seem mysterious. Of course, you have to understand
the physical nature of residual (static, ramification-centric)
information, and how it affects the ongoing kinetic energy/mass relationship
dynamic that we perceive as material existence. Once you've got that part of Reality sorted out, it gets a lot less counter-intuitive.
The human mind - to my own understanding - is the enduring informational byproduct of the material human brain's ongoing corporeal survival
activities on behalf of itself and the human body. The dynamic dictates that the brain generates (eat, sleep, screw, run, fight, associate,
, once manufactured and set into active response, persist indefinitely due to the fact that information has no material half-life rate of
decay (not being a material manifestation, after all)
. The extremely specific contextual structure of each burst of this dynamic information
(the contextual structure of an information burst or fact set defines it)
causes it to become permanently entangled with all other such bursts
that have been generated and set into response by the same material brain. Over the course of the brain's lifespan, a lot of these bursts collect,
with human burst sets possessing sentience and sapience (sense of self relative to environment and knowledge of self relative to previous, current,
and potential future placement within a progression of time)
and therefore a conscious sense of self relative to the whole of Reality.
As the brain continues to add new burst sets to its gathering mass, this human mind is aware of its own existence. It pursues and develops
predilections, beliefs, likes, dislikes - it becomes increasingly recognizable as the human being that it will ultimately become once the brain has
That said, simply "gestating" (which is what the human being is engaged in as long as the brain itself continues to add new burst sets to its
is plenty enough for most emerging human beings. Expecting this enormous undertaking to add much of anything else (like mastering the
processes of material Reality, or forcing its authoring brain to transcend the material realm altogether)
is asking (for most folks)
much from what's already a miracle. I just feel that building a quality human being should be the focus of every human brain, and that making any
fellow human brain feel as if it's not fulfilling its own destiny if it doesn't pursue what can only be described as unnecessarily distracting and
inherently fleeting instances of gestational process schisms is not serving the ultimate needs of that brain and the human being it's
There will be an entire eternity of opportunity to play around with "perception as reality". In this stage of development, it's probably best to
try and understand Reality, since it's here in the material realm where we can access reality anchors. Once the human being has left this realm
behind, Reality won't be so easy to determine.
