In regards to psychokinetic phenomena (PK), reports regarding the influence of objects (e.g. air, water, metal, etc.) in a static state is equal to that of reports regarding the influence of objects already in motion.
In other words, it appears just as common for individuals to put objects into motion as it is to direct or accelerate and object already in motion. However, reports suggest experients of psychokinesis may be limited to the influence of one state or the other.
Experients in which have high success rates for influencing objects at rest, often report the inability to influence the direction of objects successfully once the object is put into motion. Again, while this is very common, it may not necessarily be a permanent constraint.
Working on this limitation can result in (1) no effect, (2) reversed effect (3) allow one to influence objects at rest and objects in motion. This limitation may be the result of an inability to force non-equilibrium in objects, or the inability to maintain non-equilibrium in objects.
Whatever the case, experients with limitations of this nature can attempt exercises involving focusing on an object. For objects at rest, the experient should attempt putting the object into a very slow and steady motion rather than short bursts of momentum.
For objects already in motion, the experient should attempt ceasing the motion of the object very gradually. Slow and steady actions will produce greater rewards then blunt actions.
One factor that may also cause this limitation is a lack of mental focus during influence, whereby the experient can "get the ball rolling" but cannot maintain the focus required to "keep the ball rolling." I suggest meditative focus techniques ideal for focusing attention such as Yoga.
The following is a summary of my hypothesis of the mechanisms involved in psi processes.
When an individual finds themselves in an urgent need (psi is theorized to be a evolutionary survival mechanism by most parapsychologists), I assume the psychophysiological stress caused by the ‘need’ results in oxidative stress in various areas of the body.
I assume this results in the increase of the amplitude of the ultra-weak biophotonic field around the individual (scientifically proven to exist) due to electrons in the body being lowered to the ground state where by emitting biophotons.
At this time, I assume the biophotons then detect diverse information in regards to the individual, the situation, and the environment via the quantum teleportation of information (communication of information at a distance between photons; a scientific possibility).
I then assume the biophoton energy is then converted into electrical energy (scientifically possible) and the information is then processed by the central nervous system, and sent through the memory areas of the brain (a parapsychological theory with a very solid basis) and shortly thereafter the information is consciously cognized by the individual.
This particular model assumes the process of receiving psi-based information through Clairvoyance. The same model can be used to describe ESP reception and transmission, and PK (e.g. 'environment, biophotonic field, CNS, memory, conscious awareness' or reverse 'conscious/subconscious intent, memory, CNS, biophotonic field, environment.')
Unstable psychical phenomena can be the result of many factors. One factor can be mental or physical health. Through my years of research I have found direct correlations between psychophysiological health and psychical stability.
When the psychophysiological health of an experient of psychical phenomena is compromised to any degree (e.g. stress, anxiety, acute or chronic pain), the experient is bombarded with an increased reactivity to psychical stimuli.
This increase is typically equivalent to the magnitude of the psychological or physiological factor initiating the increased reactivity (e.g. mild stress = mild increased reactivity). In the case of psychophysiological factors, ideally, experients should address the condition and instability as soon as they emerge.
Whether the condition is the result of the psychical instability, or the psychical instability is the result of the condition is never clear, but treating the condition appears to treat the psychical instability every time.
Another factor can be the result of the experients immediate environment. I have found many correlations between elements in the environment and increased psychical phenomena during my years of research.
While these elements maybe advantageous to those experiencing stable phenomena looking to enhance said phenomena, these elements can also send unstable phenomena spiraling out of control. Elements can include specific wavelengths of light, pigments of color, and various types of materials in the experients immediate environment.
Experients can identify these factors via psychical assessment. Once the experient is aware of what factors to work on, or avoid, the experient can begin their way towards psychical well-being.
Recent parapsychological research suggests that psychical system (e.g. psychical processes) are both “need-based” and are the result of a normal subconscious engagement with Nature (including reality and all constituents of reality e.g. individuals) beyond our physical and sensorial boundaries. This engagement, termed &ldquosi,” void of spatial proximity (distance), can be broken into two main categories (e.g. Extrasensory Perception and Psychokinesis).
Such received and assimilated information is assumed involved in the development of all experiences. Psi is assumed to operate continuously at the basic, beginning level of human functioning (i.e. a first sight rather than a second sight). Since it seems that perceptual experiences begin with the psi level of engagement and shares similar functioning patterns with other subconscious processes, psychical processes are assumed to be integrated with these other subconscious processes.
Research has also lead to the finding that psi processes work with the memory (specifically the long-term memory) which is stored in various regions throughout the brain. Because psi is a fundamental basis of human functioning (e.g. perceptual experience), and the information is received and stored throughout the mind, there may be no way to “shut off” a psychical ability.
However, the psychical system appears to be linked to the emotional system and personality. Typically, in an individual will low stress and well maintained mental and physical health, psychical processes present themselves in a non-intrusive and typically unnoticeable manner, whereby simply contributing to experience rather than be an experience in and of itself.
Acute and chronic periods of heightened stress, mental illness (anxiety, depression, etc) and or physical illness, can increase the noticeability of a particular form of psychical phenomena. The resolution here is to remedy the stress (stress management, meditation, behavioral therapy, other forms of medical or therapeutic treatment, etc.) to alleviate the noticeability of the phenomena.
In addition, I have found correlations between personality types and specific phenomena. I have also found that personality deviation (altering personality) can result in the “disappearance” of one form of phenomena, to be replaced by another (e.g. telepathy for clairvoyance). However, even if personality deviation leads the exchange of a psychical specialty, the stress related factors will still play a critical role in the operations of the “new” phenomena (i.e. personality deviation in conjunction with stressors will still present intrusive phenomena).
In other words, if the psychical phenomena experienced by an individual is intrusive, the individual should focus either on alleviating stressors from their life, or learning new methods of coping with stress, as stress puts the body in continual state of “need” (e.g. needing to reduce stress, therefore “searching “ for a means to do so, as a means to promote system wide health). Once such needs are addressed, the phenomena will no longer be intrusive (i.e. will appear “shut-off&rdquo.
The first sight model helps the parapsychological community answer difficult questions like “why do ghosts wear clothes?” or “how can there be apparitions of living individuals?”
Such experiences are assumed the result of hallucinations, possibly mediated via telepathy or clairvoyance. Such hallucinations are assumed a product of the mind and constructed from images in the "receivers" memory, rather from the "senders" memory.
Therefore, it is assumed that no mediation of visual impressions from the sender to the receiver has occurred, but rather the mediation of generalized information to be later cognized via the receivers own memorial images.
Assumptions continue suggesting that the images are retrieved from the receiver’s conscious and subconscious memory (i.e. extrasensory experience arises exclusively from memory).
A large quantity of ESP based data has become comprehensible due to memory models in which assume that the systemic source of extrasensory information is somehow localized in the long-term memory.
Recent findings support the hypothesis that memory is distributed in many regions of the brain, assumed as a means to potentially compensate for damage to one storage area. In other words, the support of memory is not specific to certain regions, but rather a whole network.
The view up until now was that in regards to memory, if point (A) was lost then point (b) would be on all of the time to take over for (A). However, this assumption appears today to be incorrect, as (b) would only take over if and when needed (i.e. is exclusively need-based).
Most of the time (b) appears to act like a normal piece of brain tissue and only kicks into “hyperdrive” when (A) is particularly challenged, and performs in less than a second. While this is a remarkable fluid neural plasticity, it is not to be confused with the standard “(b) took over for (A), but rather (b) will take over when needed.
Such a finding (that memory is distributed in many regions of the brain) will pose an issue for the parapsychological community in regards to isolating a region of the brain responsible for psi cognitive processes, or rather, could potentially explain what such a region has not yet exclusively been found.
Psi phenomena appear to be need-based, suggesting a “requirement” rather than simply a general “desire” or want.
Such a need is pertinent to the reception of psi-based information and the possible assimilation of the information along with information gathered via other preconscious processes.
To differentiate between a desire and a requirement, desire in this case is a sense of longing for an outcome. Such a longing is excited by the thought of the outcome, whereby exciting an individual to take action to obtain said outcome (i.e. I want to perform].
Contrastingly, to require an outcome is to identify a necessary obligation, or to indentify a necessity arising from the circumstances of a situation (i.e. I have to perform).
I typically answer this question via my profiling methods, as the methods appear to identify the nature of the source of the anomalous information quite accurately despite the complexities surrounding such a question.
For many years I have worked along side individuals skilled in clairvoyant and mediumistic anomalous communication and have found certain characteristics exclusive to each type.
Typically, clairvoyants rank high in regards to category type Yellow, while mediums typically rank high in regards to category type Black. Throughout formulating psychical profiles, I have obtained more reports from type Yellows suggesting communications with “reality,” the “universe” or “Nature” itself (as though Nature itself is a universal information system) then I have in regards to type Blacks.
In reports involving type Black experients of psychical phenomena, multiple or a single “entity” is typically reported. These entities vary in description from ancestors, recently deceased relatives, spirits of the deceased in general, or those describe as non-human (angels, messengers of the gods, etc.).
While such is not always the case, as there are no pure types (i.e. people tend to blend into two to three major types), those who score high in regards to type Yellow typically communicate with Nature, while those who score high in regards to type Black typically communicate with entities. This is of course a generalized answer.
Parapsychology is defined as the application of scientific methods to the study of certain kinds of anomalous phenomena, which basically states that a desire to be come a parapsychologist is a desire to become a scientist.
Realizing this, one needs to decide from which scientific discipline they want to approach parapsychology. Many parapsychologists start with a academic background in psychology, typically a Ph.D.
Many universities offer parapsychology courses to those majoring in psychology and other relative fields. Other fields to consider are those in anthropology, neuroscience and various areas of physics such as biophysics or particle physics.
In any respect, it is essential to have a strong understanding of quantum theory, especially if you end up in research. In any case, being a parapsychologist requires some form of academic approach to succeed, especially when it comes to research employment and funding.
I recommend having at least your Masters or preferably a Doctorate in a relative field, all the while taking courses relative to parapsychology. If the university or college you attend does not offer parapsychology courses, there are online options such as the University of Edinburgh Parapsychology Program.
Very few parapsychologists work in the public sector (i.e. employed by a university), as employment opportunities are very limited, in part by limited funding.
Parapsychology is not a field for everyone, but the field does continually need fresh ideas. While a full-time career is a rarity for parapsychologists, offering part-time contributions to the field is always an option second to your full-time career in a related field.
This above applies to those who desire to become a researcher, counselor, or educator in parapsychology. Alternatives to parapsychology, depending on your focus, include metaphysics (involved in studying the fundamental nature of being and reality), paranormal investigations (investigating locations that are reported to be haunted by ghosts), spiritual counseling (counseling from both a practical and spiritual perspective), and writing (in regards to experiences in your field, or your personal life).
The way to validate a psychical dream is through research. The most efficient way to research a person or event in a dream is to know what information to research, but the most essential way to research a person or event in a dream is to have all the information necessary to being a research project.
Research has shown that one of the best ways to remember your dreams is to enhance your working memory as the more efficient an experients’ memory is, the more critical details they will be able to remember from the dream.
These critical details are what will help the experient develop a research strategy that could lead to validation. Research has also shown that keeping a dream journal at the bedside to log details about dreams upon waking preserves the crucial details of dreams, many in which are otherwise rapidly forgotten soon after waking.
This allows for a later in-depth analysis of dreams after the experient is completely awake. Such in-depth analysis should involve both conceptual (shapes, textures, colors, emotions, and other sensations) and contextual (times, places, names, associated objects or events, etc.) information recorded from the dream.
The more information acquired from the dream, the more an experient can narrow down an exploratory search. Research tools can involve online news media in regards to events that have already happened, but identifying an event that has yet to happen, or identifying a person, requires the learned skill of drawing large conclusions from small observations through efficient deductive reasoning.
