Hi everyone! smile.gif

My name is Fermin Liu and I would like to share with you a question that has been on my mind a lot lately. In my English class, where we have learned about Transcendentalism and the infinite potential that people can access when they acknowledge the interconnectivity of everything and believe that anything is possible, my teacher has taught us how to meditate. As the definition of meditation goes, it is supposed to be a relaxing activity that allows the practitioner to cleanse his or her mind and thus, feel one with the universe. In feeling connected to everything, we will then know that there are no real physical boundaries and therefore, transcend the physical to a realm of pure energy, which as we call it in class, is the nonlocal domain of essence.

Thus, with this brief introduction of essence and the nonlocal and physical domain, my question is this: In this nonlocal domain of energy where we feel that everything is correlated and exchanging and affecting each other in some way, is telepathy - the ability to communicate and read other people's thoughts without any physical means but rather just by thinking - possible? Can people who have connected with essence and quieted their ego-mind - the mind that makes us think that we are all separate individuals in this world with no connection whatsoever and is too focused on its own problems and fear to realize the bigger picture of interconnectivity - read other people's thoughts as perceived energy?

Like Ralph Waldo Emerson's idea of the "transparent eyeball", which is the concept that when we feel the interconnectivity of things, we enter a state of energy exchange in which we can see into the insides of other people and they can see into our insides as the transparent eyeballs that we are (the idea of interconnectivity and energy correlation), in his essay "Nature", is it possible to manipulate our own energy waves and that of others through meditating which will thus allow us to read other people's thought? And if telepathy is real, how does it appear in the physical domain? What have been the evidence of this seemingly phenomenal ability that is tangible? Please give good examples with supporting arguments! Thank you! smile.gif

For anyone who is interested in the forum that my English class has created based on the same topics of Transcendentalism, the ego-mind, the Universal Being, etc., please feel free to visit the following website and to comment on anything and everything:

Yeah, really. No more "no child left behind"? I'm jealous

I guess I always thought about the telepathy thing myself when I meditate. I don't know if it's possible, but I see the path as this: the meditation refines your frequency, the more you refine the more you understand other frequencies. As my perspectives grow, I'm more able to take advantage of the moment...don't know if telepathy is an extension of that though.

If there are telepaths, they sure do keep their secret well, as I haven't seen concrete proof of it's existence. If anything, I can see telepathy as a representation of being better in tune with reality.

Thank you both for replying! smile.gif I really means a lot to me that people are actually thinking about my question because I really would like to know the truth about telepathy, meditation, and the Universal Being. smile.gif

Well I can't claim to be an expert, I only say what I do from my personal experience. So with my telepathy and being in tune quote, I'll give this example from my logic on representations:

Some people believe that there is a path, either chosen by God or the person themselves before they came into existence. I don't know if I believe that but, as a representation, I could believe that would equal following ambitions or goals.

Following through with ambitions and goals(along with meditation to clarify what those things may be), I am able to see my existence more clearly with each passing day(as long as I'm not unfocused). Things seem to flow easier with day to day tasks, peculiarities occur that I just may not notice when I'm unfocused, I'm more motivated, and am able to see more opportunity to take advantage of. I could make the list go on and on.

Now, with the peculiarities and opportunities...that may be something less concrete and very subjective to describe and prove and that's where it becomes just my personal experience. Could an extension of being more in tune lead to telepathic ability? I'm not sure... If it could, maybe it depends on what that persons goals or ambitions are...

I would feel better off calling telepathy something less magical, like keen awareness. Maybe it has something to do with reading faces or body language, knowledge of voice tones, personal experiences or wisdom with age.

I can't say that's what telepathy really is, but I know that the more aware a person is with subtleties of existence, the more "magical" a person seems.


Then again...I heard some wacko saying to drink some kind of weird copper stuff because that will re-establish the blocked telepathic connection caused by our drinking water.

Well, there are rumors that Telepathic communications is a part of our thinking process, and eventually with development of languages some solid Clusters/Chanels formed, which in their turn maybe should coincide with the names of Gods, here check it up please:

Gentlemen why we talk so much. Let us pass to the facts.

Now some funny details about divine Cybernetics, facts are better than dreams as far as we all know: let us consider interesting elements in names of some Countries (Domains in the Cybernetic Network of our dear so called Matrix):

Hope you all know who is Mr. Indra (I read he is considered somewhere as the King of Gods):

Root: India
Transf.: Letter "i" grows a little and becomes "r"
Gateway: Indra

Root: Iraq
Transf.: Iraq, Irad, transliteration+ key "n" = Idra+n=Indra
Gateway: Indra

Root: Iran
Transf.: transliteration+ key "d" = Inra+d=Indra
Gateway: Indra

Celestial Empire:
Root: China
Transf.: China, Ch ina, + key d_r = Ch Indra
Gateway: Indra/ChIndra
Examples: Chandra Sekar, Ch'ndra. ChIndra etc.

Now I do hope this funny games of Enki shall amaze you all.

Cool, is not it? So why Persia became Iran? Who was the inventor of those names gentlemen? Coincidence or ...?

Let me show you another trick:

Root: Persia
Transf: Transliteration - Pe asir, Pe Asir (Asri, Isra; Isra + EL, Israel, EL, LE (Lord Enki) I am joking) wink.gif
Gateway: Asir, Asar, Asur, Osiris

Root: Russia
Transf: Transliteration - Rus sia, US Asir, US Osiris
Gateway: Osiris

I can continue gentlemen. But do we need that. Let us accept facts. Human brains communicate and exchange information somehow, there are keys in that communications and there are things which rule people, in old times those things were called Gods.

So I guess gentlemen that it is time to start Political Talks on those sensitive subjects on the Verge of Establishment of the NEW WORLD ORDER (NEO, rotate W clockwise).

PS: There are many ways to the HEAVen and I guess EHVA knows them. I do really hope that the people do not forget about that. I just feel necessary to remind about that from my far away country.

PPS: And remember children, the Matrix does not exist! wink.gif


Hope now you understand what the Brain Meta forum in true is. laugh.gif

You're opening a can of worms here..
Even if you had all the necessary data to make someone a telepath. How would you go about separating your own thoughts from others'. This would inadvertently drive you insane in the long run. This is my main problem when I watch science fiction. The fiction gap is often waaaaay to huge to suspend disbelief. No one ever extrapolates the psychological impact of technology in movies, specially when it comes to predicting the future. VFX candy can't compensate this, and is the reason why PKD's books almost always translate miserably to the big screen.

Something escaping this thread is the definition of meditation. This is not something you can turn to wiki for an answer, or the west for an answer, imo. The Buddhist will tell you to try to think of nothing without trying (I know..) In the west they'd tell you to concentrate on happy thoughts because it's good for your body (utilitarian meditation in the form of a happy pill)

Even in asia, the japanese have a different concept of meditation from the chinese, and the hindi. Mind you, most of them probably do not aim (and probably don't want) to achieve telepathy. Hell, most would probably feel they're doing something wrong if they feel theirs, or someone else's thoughts.

All the psi labs with their card readers and receivers in controlled experiments over the years have turned up zilch. There is no telepathy, telekinesis, precognition, etc.

Hell, one precog would bankrupt every casino he visited.

Excellent question.

There are rumors, that the Supreme Beings regulate those aspects. I bought you the names of domains, like in computer nets: there are servers which IP are the names of those Gods locked with transposition of letters in A Word Matrix which elements are letters, sentence can be considered as a Matrix of Words, an Array etc. Grammar and Spelling shields wrong percolation.
Dangerous people, who can damage the system and cause dangerous percolation generally run to madness. After 9/11 some gentlemen wanted to create new Cluster based on number 911, and I guess, it is just a fresh example.

Here are examples possibly of how the stability of the system is provided (all know these people and words I site below, so those Servers regulate the stability):

ArisTotEl = Aris + Tot +El (hope you know those 3 persons from general mythology)
plAton= pl Aton (on Greek it is written with letter at the end http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plato)
ARIStocrasy ...

I think you have to know who are mister Amon (Amun) and mister Aton (Aten).

Mona Lisa = Amon Lisa
MONArchy ...=>AMON
NUMA Pompilius => AMUN
NATO => ATON (http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/index.htm)

And I hope you ever read about adventures of Dr. FrEnklin, wink.gif
Books of Proff. Tol'kiEn, and
Heard about f'Enki's Order laugh.gif

Now you know Enki too. laugh.gif

Btw, if I do write about that openly it means that our Matrix is moving mankind to new level of perception of the reality as the number of humans increased and so we need to move to the New World Order (certainly a new edition with some corrections made recently laugh.gif ) (NEO, rotate W clockwise and you shall get E).

But the Royal Society and NSF still research the problem and there is no proofs about existence of Telepathy. Many gifted people there work, work and work there getting a lot of money for their arduous work for which they definitely shall be rewarded in a very specific way on the HEAVens, rumors say so.

Here is an example how some lords rule our planet:

It is a Ring of Power I got from another Far Away Country:

Dr. Jumba Jookiba from Evil Genius University (EGU)
Airavata Valley, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airavata
Erawan City, (Erawan is Thai name of Airavata - white elephant of Indra)
ArmEnia

he sent me interesting observations concerning the Rings of Power (see picture attached).
Here I bring only the two of them (the second picture is provided by another person).

So now imagine how the Main Ring of the Power looks like. laugh.gif

And let the Force stay with you! laugh.gif

Yes, Yes, of course, of course.

Thousand of illuminated scientists day and night are working over that problem around the world without any significant progress in disclosing that Enigma.

Thanks again for everyone that is replying to help me with my questions and finding my answers. smile.gif For those of you that may think of telepathy as a intrusive and threatening superpower, I want you guys to think about the following comment that I have also posted on my English class's forum in response to my classmates' similar attitude toward telepathy:

I know that it seems that telepathy is such an extraordinary ability that is supposed to be scary and people who possess it should be locked away for good. But when thinking about how there are really no secrets on the nonlocal level of interconnectivity, telepathy simply becomes a proof of the interconnectedness amongst everything as energy. Thus, telepathy is not really such a great power of reading people's minds and manipultaing their thoughts (as seen in Heroes , a tv series about people with genetically altered DNA that gives them extraordinary abilities); it is rather just an intuition or that gut feeling that you have when you are sure about something, like what people are going to say or how they are going to react. Based on this less threatening definition of 'telepathy', what do you now feel about telepathy?

Once again, thank you all so much for participating. biggrin.gif A new question that you guys can think about is this: Since I said that telepathy is the result of the connecting of two people's essence on the energy level, can a person shut him or herself down against the usage of telepathy on him or herself by not wanting to connect with other people's essence? Can we essentially ostracize our essence from the rest of the people's essence? In thinking about this, please think about how our essence are all actually particles of one whole Universal Being in the nonlocal domain of pure potential as Emerson says in "Nature". smile.gif

Enki and Rick, can you two further elaborate on your discussions of the Supreme Being and the psi labs, respectively? Thank you all so much! biggrin.gif And remember, if any of you would like to visit and participate in the discussions I am having in my English class, please visit a website that is called the transparency.phpbb9 , our class's forum on Transcendentalism. smile.gif Thank you and keep the ideas flowing! smile.gif

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stargate_Project
Remote viewing:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_viewing

The Stargate Project[1] was the umbrella code name of one of several sub-projects established by the U.S. Federal Government to investigate the reality, and potential military and domestic applications, of psychic phenomena, particularly "remote viewing:" the purported ability to psychically "see" events, sites, or information from a great distance.[2] These projects were active from the 1970s through 1995, and followed up early psychic research done at The Stanford Research Institute (SRI), The American Society for Psychical Research, and other psychical research labs. [3]

The Stargate Project created a set of protocols designed to make researching clairvoyance and out-of-body experiences more scientific, and minimize as much as possible session noise and inaccuracy. The term "remote viewing" emerged as shorthand to describe this more structured approach to clairvoyance. Stargate only received a mission after all other intelligence attempts, methods, or approaches had already been exhausted.[7] At its peak, Stargate had as many as 14 labs researching remote viewing [8]

It was also reported that there were over 22 active military and domestic remote viewers providing data. When the project closed in 1995 this number had dwindled down to three. One was using tarot cards. People leaving the project were not replaced. According to Joseph McMoneagle, "The [US] Army never had a truly open attitude toward psychic functioning". Hence, the use of the term "giggle factor"[9] and the saying, "I wouldn't want to be found dead next to a psychic."[10]

When gathering intelligence misinformation can be more dangerous than no information at all.[11] See: CIA informant Rafid Ahmed Alwan. As with all intelligence information, intelligence gathered by remote viewing must be verified by other sources. Remote-viewing information could not stand alone.(According to Ray Hyman in the AIR report, if Ed May's[12] conclusions are correct remote viewers were right 20% of the time and wrong 80% of the time.)

In 1995 the project was transferred to the CIA and a retrospective evaluation of the results was done. The CIA contracted the American Institutes for Research for an evaluation. On June 30, before the AIR review was to begin, the CIA closed the Stargate project.[13] An analysis conducted by Professor Jessica Utts showed a statistically significant effect, with gifted subjects scoring 5%-15% above chance, though subject reports included a large amount of irrelevant information, and when reports did seem on target they were vague and general in nature.[14] Ray Hyman argued that Utts' conclusion that ESP had been proven to exist, especially precognition, "is premature and that present findings have yet to be independently replicated."[15] Based upon both of their collected findings, which recommended a higher level of critical research and tighter controls, the CIA terminated the 20 million dollar project, citing a lack of documented evidence that the program had any value to the intelligence community. Time magazine stated in 1995 three full-time psychics were still working on a $500,000-a-year budget out of Fort Meade, Maryland, which would soon close up shop.[14]

A bunch of criminal scientists integrated into authoritarian organizations, which monopolized science funding worldwide in joint cooperation with various illuminated bastards worldwide dictate their truth enslaving common people for many decades.

A) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Crookes
Sir William Crookes/ President of Royal Society, Nobel Price Winner.

In 1870 Crookes decided that science had a duty to study preternatural phenomena associated with Spiritualism (Crookes 1870). Judging from family letters, Crookes had already developed a favorable view of Spiritualism by 1869 (Doyle 1926: volume 1, 232 - 233). In this he was possibly influenced by the untimely death of his younger brother Philip in 1867 at age 21 from yellow fever contracted while on an expedition to lay a telegraph cable from Cuba to Florida (Crookes 1868). Nevertheless, he was determined to conduct his inquiry impartially and described the conditions he imposed on mediums as follows: "It must be at my own house, and my own selection of friends and spectators, under my own conditions, and I may do whatever I like as regards apparatus" (Doyle 1926: volume 1, 177). Among the mediums he studied were Kate Fox, Florence Cook, and Daniel Dunglas Home (Doyle 1926: volume 1, 230-251). Among the phenomena he witnessed were movement of bodies at a distance, rappings, changes in the weights of bodies, levitation, appearance of luminous objects, appearance of phantom figures, appearance of writing without human agency, and circumstances which "point to the agency of an outside intelligence" (Crookes 1874).

His report on this research in 1874, concluded that these phenomena could not be explained as conjuring, and that further research would be useful. Crookes was not alone in his views. Fellow scientists who came to believe in Spiritualism included Alfred Russel Wallace, Oliver Joseph Lodge, Lord Rayleigh, and William James (Doyle 1926: volume 1, 62). Nevertheless, most scientists were convinced that Spiritualism was fraudulent, and Crookes' final report so outraged the scientific establishment "that there was talk of depriving him of his Fellowship of the Royal Society." Crookes then became much more cautious and didn't discuss his views publicly until 1898, when he felt his position was secure. From that time until his death in 1919, letters and interviews show that Crookes was a believer in Spiritualism (Doyle 1926: volume 1, 169 - 170, 249 - 251).

B ) "Sure enough, living insects appeared in the highly acidic solution, but the controversy sparked by the Crosse experiments of the previous year, prevented Weeks from having this work published. To his credit, Michael Faraday accounted to the Royal Society, an oligarchic institution established for the purpose of suppressing scientific discovery, that he had personally observed the creation of similar insects, termed Acari, in the course of conducting experiments of his own. " "This suggests that the mind of Crosse may have been a crucial link in the biogenesis of the insects. "

Harry Houdini spent a lot of time investigating mediums because he wanted to communicate with his departed mother, but he didn't like being lied to by inferior magicians.

Good arguments and examples, guys! smile.gif

But now, think about the special connection between twins or really close family members, and the painful feeling that one may feel when the otehr is in trouble. Is that all made up? And if it isn't, where does that form of telepathy come from? smile.gif Refer to my main questiong and introduction of the Universal Essence in answerin this. smile.gif

Have fun! smile.gif

These kinds of annecdotes are all explainable by preferentially remembering coincidences, unconscious sensory perception, and outright fraud.

Believe it, or not, Rick, I tend to agree with you.

But it is fun investigating things, isn't it?: What is about us that make some of us outright believers; some skeptics and others are downright cynics?

Such questions are what I call pneumatological ones. BTW, as a pneumatologist--a student of spirituality--I am very much in favour of rigid testing of the claims made by all those who make them. Especially when claims having to do with healing is made.
========================================

Interestingly, a few days ago a teacher-friend of my wife, in a severe state of distress came to me for help dealing with the following situation.

Here is her story in very brief form. She told me:

My surgeon just told me: "You have lung cancer in one lung. I will need to do radical surgery to see if I can remove it by removing the lung affected. If I am able to do so, this will require you to spend six months recovering from the surgery. If you recover, your breathing capacity will be very limited. However, if I find that it has spread to the other lung, I will do nothing. That is the best I have to offer."

Needless to say, she--a relatively young senior--came to me filled with great stress and fear about her future.

MY APPROACH?

Following a period of conversation about the situation, I told her--it took 20 minutes: "I am going to offer you, at no cost to you, pneumatherapy--a spiritually-based kind of hypnotherapy.

In effect I told her: The Spirit within you, and around you, knows what to do and will guide you. The Spirit will also guide your surgeon to do what he needs to do."

Here are the results which my wife and I just heard from her family:

The surgeon said to our friend. "I am amazed about what happened. I was able to remove the growth without doing major surgery. I simply used an aspirator. You will be able to go home next Sunday. Great news, eh?"

It sure was!

Even I was amazed.

Once, as youth, I sent for a mail-order course in mental telepathy. It cost me $50.00, which I pre-paid. I waited and waited.

Eventually, suspecting a scam, I went to the local police and asked if it could be checked out. The very helpful officer charge told me: "If you have the phone number of the company, I will make a call right now. At least we can find out if the company is still in business."

He did get a live voice on the other end of the line, and I heard him verify that the company was still in business. After he took note of the name and address I heard him say: "OK, I'll tell him."

Turning to me he said: "The manager told me to tell you that they did send you the course, but not by mail; it was sent my mental telepathy. Sorry to report: You failed!" biggrin.gif
========================================

But seriously, IMO, telepathy is one of those phenomena which, like the placebo effect, is difficult to test by a controlled experiment. The act of consciously trying to explore the process probably interferes with the process.

Would musicians ever master their instruments if they had to consciously think about the mechanics involved remembering the timing and in playing every key they have to touch. Practicing the piano is not about knowing what to do, it is about training the nerves and muscles involved to automatically remember what to do, and to help them stay in shape.

By the way, when I think about how many electronic tools--for example, the radio and TV--we have today that are wireless, it seems logical to assume that the brain can be a wireless transmitter and/or receiver.

On more than one occasion, I have been able to avoid life-threatening accidents because something told me to do this rather than that.

On at least one occasion I heard what sounded like a real "voice". It told me: "Pass that car in front of you, and get out of the way, NOOOOOW!!!"

I did, and by doing so I avoided being hit by a car which had spun out of control, just behind me. My wife, had a similar experience, while driving on her own.

Just last year, in Florida--she was with me at the time--I escaped being hit by a speeding car, which came at me from the side as I, having checked the traffic, came out from a store. When I saw the car, I "shouted" mentally and quietly, "Stop!!!". Something got his attention, because he obviously put on his brake and stopped six feet from my door. I think he was distracted by a cell phone.

Reality is full with interesting occasions enough to draw appropriate conclusions for oneself about officially non-existing phenomena.
