Comet ISON: The Sungrazer That’s Approaching Earth – What Can We Expect?

Published

on

Comet ISON, also known as C/2012 S1 was discovered in September 2012 by Russian astronomers Artyom Novichonok and Vitali Nevski using data from the International Scientific Optical Network (ISON). It’s a ‘sungrazer.’ A name given to comets that come very close to the Sun. Preliminary measurements from the Hubble images suggest that the nucleus of ISON is approximately 3 – 4 miles across. It’s the size of a small mountain, and weighs between 7 billion and 7 trillion pounds (1).

We estimate ISON is emitting about 2.2 million pounds (1 million kilograms) of what is most likely carbon dioxide gas and about 120 million pounds (54.4 million kilograms) of dust every day (2)

We’ve heard very little about ISON, which has more people asking questions about it. You would think a comet that nearly collided with Mars would be making big news. Coincidentally, ISON’s passing of Mars coincided with the Government shutdown which also saw 97 percent of NASA personnel sent home, so even if it did come into contact with Mars we wouldn’t know about it. That was unfortunate given the historical significance of this comet and its path through our solar system.  Never before have we seen a comet of such magnitude come so close to colliding with a planet in our Solar System. Events like this one are not very common. If ISON makes its way around the Sun successfully, it might light up the night sky showing up brighter than the Moon.

Trajectory of Comet ISON

You can see a live demonstration of Comet ISONs path here. Below is a picture of ISON on it’s way out of the solar system after it makes its way around the Sun on November 28th. The comet will come approximately 40 million miles from Earth at the end of December.

What Can We Expect?

As shown in the image above, ISON will pass through Earths orbital path with whatever it is dragging along with it. Its giant tail along with more than 100,000 pounds of dust spewing from the comet every minute, has NASA letting us know that some debris may indeed hit our planet (7). Some models show Earth crossing ISON’s orbit two times, once on the way in and once again on the way out. Other models show the Earth crossing ISON’s path once. This could produce meteor showers and meteors similar to the Russian one seen, felt and heard around the world (8). It made headlines everywhere, injuring many people as it hit so hard that buildings shook and windows broke.

With ISON being a Sun-grazer, it will come approximately 750 miles from the Sun.(1) Most comets do not survive their trip around the Sun due to the Sun’s intense radiation and gravity. ISON however, is much larger than the typical Sun-grazer comet. What is very unusual and surprising is that comet ISON has remained intact throughout its entire journey towards the Sun. At 230 million miles away from the sun, the radiation alone begins to boil its water which is the first step towards breaking it apart. Comets usually experience at least some level of break up from the Sun before they get close to it.

One thing to definitely expect are changes in weather. Believe it or not, massive bodies flying in and around our solar system have an effect on the weather of all the planets in our solar system. It’s well documented that solar activity has a direct affect on weather here on Earth, and that comet activity has a direct affect on solar weather (3).  Within the past week, we’ve had three giant solar flares, and a total of 28 (4)(9). What is interesting is that scientists have discovered that comet tails are affected by the sun’s magnetic field. Could ISON be partly responsible for the recent, massive flares we are experiencing now?

Understanding such magnetic systems is a crucial part of space weather research and the study of how magnetic energy is converted to giant explosions on the sun such as solar flares or coronal mass ejections.(3)

Research results presented at the 2012 fall American Geophysical Union illustrated that comets help highlight the intensely dynamic environment in the Sun’s atmosphere (3). As a result they have a direct effect on the weather of all the planets within our solar system, not to mention the comets effect on Earths own magnetic field(3). There are a number of factors to consider here, expecting weather anomalies and correlating them with the entrance of celestial bodies into our solar system is rarely considered, yet highly proven.

Solar flares are like a giant EMP. A direct hit on Earth could disrupt Earths entire electronic grid, taking approximately 5-10 years to fix. Imagine that, if it’s something the human race needs, it’s something that will happen.

Lately, we’ve had some pretty big Earthquakes that might have something to do with ISON as well as solar activity. There is a very high possibility that these are correlated with space weather. Today, Earthquakes of such magnitude seem to be normal even though we rarely hear about them like we used to.

Our planet’s weather, and the weather in our solar system seem to be coinciding with the massive shift in consciousness that’s taking place. Quantum physics is shedding light on how consciousness can have a direct effect on our physical material world, so maybe this is something to consider? Don’t forget a about chronobiology, it’s a field of biology that examines periodic cyclic phenomena in living organisms in relation to solar and lunar related rhythms.  I believe we have the ability to change, or even lessen the effects of whatever potential incoming cataclysms might have. That’s why it’s important to become aware, so we can begin changing things.

List of recent earthquakes

  • 7.7 E of Khash, Iran
  • 7.2 in Kuril’sk, Russia
  • 7.4 SW of Vaini, Tonga
  • 8.3 Sea of Okhotsk
  • 7.3 115.km ENE of Taron, Papua New Guinea
  • 7.3 in the South Sandwich Islands
  • 7.0 SW of Atka, Alaska
  • 7.7 63km NNE of Awaran, Pakistan
  • 7.1 5k SE of Sagbayan, Phillippines
  • 7.1 Off the east coast of Honshu, Japan

Other Explanations

It’s becoming increasingly more clear that what most of our mainstream corporate media reports is highly controlled and manipulated. We haven’t heard too much information regarding comet ISON, and it is safe to assume that everything we are told with regards to ‘space affairs’ could also be fabricated to some extent. Garry Mckinnon shed light on this fact not too long ago -his case is one of many. Government secrecy is not so secret anymore. We have plenty of reason to speculate, another example are the recent leaks from Edward Snowden that have shed light on the black budget and how trillions of dollars a year are put towards projects the human race knows nothing about.

More people on the planet are open to the idea that not everything is as it seems, or as we are told. As we continue to uncover the lies we’ve been told on so many different levels, we start opening our minds up to possibilities that once could not even be imagined. A popular name for NASA floating around is “Never A Straight Answer.”

Comet ISON has been brightening as it continues its path towards the Sun, many are labeling it ‘the comet of the century,’ but can we be entirely sure that it’s a comet?

commet ISONThis photo in particular became extremely popular, showing that the object comprises of three objects rather than a solitary nucleus, as claimed by NASA astronomers. It was taken by the Hubble space telescope on April 30th, 2013 (5)(6). This is one reason we have to speculate that what we have been told is not the truth. Another explanation is that ISON has been accompanied by multiple UFOs. Mainstream media instantly jumped onto this idea, providing an explanation right away (5).  What do you think? Does this look like a comet to you?

It’s all about making connections, critical thinking and questioning. Albert Einstein once said that “condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.” Many readers will instantly want to criticize this possibility, without having investigated previous comets, the UFO phenomenon and more. There is plenty of validity in the assumption that this is an intelligently controlled object, just as much validity in the assumption that it is not.

Apart from this picture, there have been a couple of whistle blowers. One in particular is Dr. Edward Norton. It’s not his real name, and the interview conducted with him was done by secure team 10, a popular you tube channel that investigates matters like these. This isn’t strong evidence, but the picture above taken from Hubble makes it worth listening to and considering. Dr. Edward Nortan says that he is a former NASA and NSA contractor. He says that that these are intelligently controlled objects.

If we accept it as a comet and don’t remain open to other possibilities, it is likely we are believing what we are told by the government without further questioning. We know from previous events that there are often many details left out of the story. Sometimes it’s hard to fathom that the ones we look to for information about our world and our universe would fabricate stories. At the same time, we have a large amount of evidence and proof that illustrates how our government has lied to us time and time again with matters both on this world and off of this world. One great example is the topic of UFOs, which have now been declassified by dozens of governments, high ranking political and military figures worldwide. Is it possible that Comet ISON is a UFO, or accompanied by UFOs? It might sound outrageous, but I think it’s definitely a possibility, and something worth exploring. Maybe we will find out within the next couple of months?

Below is a video done by Dr. Michael Salla. Dr. Salla is an internationally recognized scholar in international politics, conflict resolution and US foreign policy. He is the author/editor of multiple books and has held academic appointments in the School of International Service & the Center for Global Peace, American University, Washington DC (1996-2004); and the Elliot School of International Affairs, George Washington University, Washington D.C (2002). He has a Ph.D in Government from the University of Queensland, Australia, and an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is also the founder of the Exopolitics Institute and the Exopolitics Journal.

This video is for those looking to explore more about ISON, it’s something to consider. I’ve come across what I believe to be good evidence to support this claim. I will not be sharing it in this article however, due to the fact that it is based on years of research and would be another entire article by itself. I don’t know what ISON is, it might be a comet and it might not be. I think it’s important to entertain multiple possibilities. It is possible that we might never know the truth about this particular object.

Incoming celestial bodies with this path in these times have been prophesized by multiple cultures throughout human history. We are living in a time of rebirth, a time of choice, and a time of purification. It’s an interesting time to be alive. These are the many reasons why it’s important to speculate!

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Begins Launching 4,425 New Satellites Into Low Orbit For StarLink

Published

on

Image: Steve Jurvetson

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Musk's SpaceX has begun launching satellites into Earth's orbit that will provide wireless infrastructure to the world. They will be launching hundreds more over the year.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we acting too quickly on technology without safety testing? Are we as humans more connected to having the latest greatest technology than we are to our own health and wellness?

SpaceX has already begun launching satellites into space, which are set to provide 5G-like internet to the world. Intensely focused beams of microwave radiation will begin hitting Earth. This is not an image of fear, but one of deep questioning: Are we jumping too fast on this technology, despite the fact that it’s already showing signs of danger for our health?

The untested 5G plans of telecom companies around the world aim to install millions of cell towers on electric utility poles, public buildings, schools, bus stop shelters, in public parks, and anywhere else they want–including national parks and on federally owned land. Public concern has grown immensely over the past while, and rightly so, these are untested moves with big health implications.

There is no denying the technological upswing with 5G. The internet will be FAST. There is also no denying the obvious, that bringing high-quality internet speed to the world would mean better connectivity, more efficiency, and would solve problems like the ones I face living in a rural area–I don’t have good internet.

But at what cost are we attempting to solve these issues, and why do competition and capitalism overrule the need for safety testing? Does this not reveal humanity’s lust for money and technology over their own health? Perhaps our internet connection is good, but is the connection to ourselves and each other good?

People with concerns about 5G are often laughed at within pop culture today as well, as if there is nothing to be concerned about. As Dr. Sharon Goldberg has put it:

“Wireless radiation has biological effects. Period. This is no longer a subject for debate when you look at PubMed and the peer-reviewed literature. These effects are seen in all life forms; plants, animals, insects, microbes. In humans, we have clear evidence of cancer now: there is no question. We have evidence of DNA damage, cardiomyopathy, which is the precursor of congestive heart failure, neuropsychiatric effects… 5G is an untested application of a technology that we know is harmful; we know it from the science. In academics, this is called human subjects research.”

That in contrast to a social media post from the CEO responsible for the latest push of more wireless infrastructure:

As you can see from Goldberg’s comments, it’s not whether or not these effects are there, we know they are, the question becomes how much will they affect us when suddenly towers are lining the roadways every 500 feet, as per what’s required with 5G technology.

The dangers associated with EMF radiation and 5G are clear, this isn’t really a debate. The question of why we don’t seem to be doing much about it is the part that’s odd.

Musk’s SpaceX To Launch

SpaceX was given approval by the FCC on March 29th, 2018 to launch 4,425 satellites into low orbit around Earth that will begin to layout a wireless internet infrastructure in space. The total number expected to be put into low and high orbit over the coming years will be about 20,000 across all companies. SpaceX will top out at 12,000; OneWeb at 4,560; Boeing 2,956; Spire Global at 972. This is what’s planned out as of now.

A look at SpaceX’s StarLink program.

The first two test satellites were launched by SpaceX in February of 2018. Hundreds more are set to launch in 2019 alone, and the full set of 20,000 are projected to be in orbit during the next 2 years. You can compare that to the 1,738 operating satellites that have been in Earth’s orbit as of September 2017. By the end of two years from now, the number of satellites over the earth will be increased by over 1000%.

Perhaps worse, the satellites will be about the size of a small refrigerator and weigh about 880 pounds. The life expectancy will be 5 years, and once they are no longer functional, they will become space junk until they eventually fall back to earth and burn up in earth’s atmosphere.

The Takeaway

I have the ability in my rural area to increase my internet speed so I don’t have to drive 10 minutes to the local coffee shop during days I’m not at the CE office and need to upload a large file, but I won’t improve that internet connection because my option is a 5G frequency range that will push even more harmful waves at me, my family and my house.

This would be even worse than those we already naturally get from WiFi and cell signal. People look at this and think “well you are already getting hit anyway, so who cares?” I care because the damage from this stuff is cumulative. The more there is, the worse this problem gets. So if you don’t limit exposure, you’re simply being unconscious of reality. This isn’t to say you live in fear, in no way am I afraid of EMF radiation, I am simply connected enough to the reality of the situation that I act on it.

I also find it odd that our culture glorifies people so heavily who act in ways that obviously are highly controversial to human health. Musk has done some great things, let’s recognize that, but we also avoid the fact that he is setting up a microwave system over top of the entire Earth, with no safety testing. Why are we not saying more about this?

Take Action

The irresponsible push for 5G without testing has inspired us to create people-powered investigative journalism campaign to stop the 5G infrastructure. We plan to investigate the telecom industry, it’s ties to politics, and expose its efforts to push 5G while ignoring the dangers and without proper safety testing, but we can’t do it without your support.

Russian Military Colonel Publishes An Article Claiming Human & Animal Telepathy Is 100 Percent Real

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Russian Ministry of Defense published an article about the existence of military parapsychology in Russian military techniques, which allows one to penetrate into the thoughts of another, hack computer programs, and communicate telepathically.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is this type of science studied at the highest levels of various governments, yet ridiculed and not studied at all within the mainstream?

Is telepathy real? It’s hard to argue against it; in fact, I would say that it’s not really up for debate. That being said, when it comes to topics like these, the field is polluted with a bad reputation given its association with magic, superstition and ‘pseudoscience,’ terms that often come from those who condemn the subject without ever really looking into it. The evidence for the existence of telepathy is actually quite overwhelming, and in many cases, much stronger than most other areas of science.

Dr. Jessica Utts is a great person to bring up, as I’ve done many times before, to hammer this fact home. She is the  Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Irvine. In 1999, she published a paper showing how the statistical significance with regards to results seen from studies under the realm of parapsychology (telepathy, remote viewing, etc) are stronger than some of the studies used to approve some medications. In a recent interview, she emphasized the following.

“What convinced me was just the evidence, the accumulating evidence as I worked in this field and I got to see more and more of the evidence. I visited the laboratories, even beyond where I was working to see what they were doing and I could see that they had really tight controls… and so I got convinced by the good science that I saw being done. And in fact I will say as a statistician I’ve consulted in a lot of different areas of science; the methodology and the controls on these experiments are much tighter than any other area of of science where I’ve worked.” (source)

Why is it that these topics are not touched by mainstream academia, yet studied at the highest levels of government? Multiple governments all over the world have been studying this phenomenon for decades, and a lot has been declassified. Take the remote viewing program that was conducted by the US government/CIA and Stanford University, for example.

After its declassification in 1995, or at least its partial declassification, the Department of Defense and those involved revealed an exceptionally high success rate.

To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the [remote viewing] phenomenon. (source)

The latest example comes from Russia, as their Ministry of Defence recently published an article about the existence and study of parapsychology within the Russian military. The article explains how these techniques are and were used to penetrate the thoughts of the enemy (mind-reading) as well as to hack into enemy computer systems. The article is titled “Super Soldier for the Future Wars” and was published in the Defense Army magazine.

The article was written by Colonel Nikolai Poroskov, who explained that they use parapsychological techniques like telepathy for combat purposes, revealing secrets, disclosing locations, etc… He even discloses that Russian specialists have learned telepathy by working with dolphins.

As a note to readers, we here at Collective Evolution do not condone the use of animals for any type of experimentation. There is no information on the conditions of these experiments, but we are assuming they were captured for military purposes, which is extremely sad and heart-breaking.

Poroskov writes:

“They mentally gave the animals the commands that they carried out. Similar practiced by the famous trainer Durov. The technique, as it turned out, is applicable to humans. Moreover, the impact was even possible on the technique. With an effort of thought you can, for example, shoot down computer programs, burn crystals in generators, eavesdrop on a conversation, or break television and radio broadcasts and communications. Good luck ended with such experiments as reading a document lying in a safe, even if it is in a foreign language that we do not speak; identification of individuals belonging to the terrorist network; identifying potential candidates for terrorist groups,” the statement reads. (source)

Quite astonishing, isn’t it? Parapsychology seems to be the largest known threat to any type of secrecy, doesn’t it? I found the reference to hacking computers quite interesting. Can telepathy really be used for purposes like hacking electronic equipment? I did some more digging and found an interesting document inside of the CIA’s electronic reading room with regards to the Soviet Union.

Here’s a quote from the document:

The Soviet Union is well aware of the benefits and applications of parapsychology research. In 1963, a Kremilin edict apparently gave top priority to biological research, which in Russia includes parapsychology. The major impetus behind the Soviet drive to harness the possible capabilities of telepathic communication, telekinetics, and bionics is said to come from the Soviet military and the KGB. Today it is reported that the USSR has twenty or more centres for the study of parapsychological phenomena, with an annual budget estimated in 1967 at over 13 million dollars and reported to be as high as 21 million dollars.

Today, we know that trillions of dollars have gone into black budget programs in the United States, many of which likely deal with parapsychology, as they have in the past.

The document also states:

There are reports that the Soviets are training their cosmonauts in telepathy to back-up their electronic equipment while in outer space. One of these back-up schemes is known to involve coded telepathic messages. This method was previously demonstrated in March 1967, when a coded telepathic message was flashed from Moscow to Leningrad. The involvement of astronauts or cosmonauts in telepathy experiments is not necessarily unprecedented. In February 1971, during the Apollo 14 flight to the moon, astronaut Edgar Mitchell made 150 separate attempts to project his thoughts from inside the space capsule back to an individual on earth. The results of the Apollo 14 experiments have been well-documented in detail and are published in the Journal of Parapsychology. (source)

Deeper Black Budget Discussion On CETV

Again, these programs lie within the realm of the black budget and are highly classified. Who knows how far ahead of the mainstream world they truly are?

CETV is a platform we created in order to combat the censorship and demonetization we have been facing over the past few years. On episode 4 of The Collective Evolution Show on CETV, we discussed the black budget in much greater detail. Below is a clip exploring the missing money from the black budget and special access programs, explaining where the money is going and what exactly it’s being used for.

You can become a member of CETV, get access to the full show and many others, and support conscious media here.

The Takeaway

Human consciousness and parapsychology should not only be studied for the purposes of learning new defence tactics. Humans have great potential, and there is still so much that we have yet to discover about ourselves. What needs to change is the intention behind these discoveries.

New Study of Mind-Matter Interaction Via Double Slit Experiment Yields “Remarkable” Results

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new analysis of the double slit experiment shows, according to the author, "remarkable" results when it comes to analyzing the mind-matter interaction problem.

  • Reflect On:

    Why has most of this science been studied by the Department of Defense? Why are real life, documented and recorded examples never used in these studies? Why is the statistical significance of parapsychology never mentioned?

Does mind influence matter? The answer is an unquestionable yes, this fact is firmly established in scientific literature, and the only thing up for debate is just how much of an effect our minds can have on matter.

In what’s known as the double slit experiment, tiny bits of matter (photons, electrons, or any atomic-sized object) are shot toward a screen that has two slits in it. On the other side of the screen, a video camera records where each photon lands. When scientists close one slit, the camera will show us an expected pattern. But when both slits are opened, an interference pattern emerges — they begin to act like waves. This means that each photon individually goes through both slits at the same time and interferes with itself, but it also goes through one slit, and it goes through the other. Furthermore, it goes through neither of them. The single piece of matter becomes a “wave” of potentials, expressing itself in the form of multiple possibilities, and this is why we get the interference pattern.

How can a single piece of matter exist and express itself in multiple states, without any physical properties, until it is “measured” or “observed”? Furthermore, how does it choose which path, out of multiple possibilities, to take?

Then, when an “observer” decides to measure and look at which slit the piece of matter goes through, the “wave” collapses, and then things really get interesting.

The connection between human consciousness, or factors associated with human consciousness such as intention, thoughts, feelings and emotions, and the physical realm is fascinating. This is precisely why nearly all of the founding fathers of quantum physics were so preoccupied with learning more about consciousness and “non-material” science in general. For instance, the theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory, Max Planck, regarded “consciousness as fundamental” and matter as a “derivative from consciousness.” Eugene Wigner, another famous theoretical physicist and mathematician, also emphasized how “it was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”

A paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays by Dean Radin, PhD explains how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality. The paper showed that meditators were able to collapse quantum systems at a distance through intention alone. The meditators were the “observer” in this case.

In fact, as Radin points out in his lecture, a “5 sigma” result was able to give CERN the Nobel Prize in 2013 for finding the Higgs particle (which turned out not to be Higgs after all). In this study, they also received a 5 sigma result when testing meditators against non-meditators in collapsing the quantum wave function. This means that mental activity, the human mind, attention, and intention, which are a few labels under the umbrella of consciousness, compelled physical matter to act in a certain way.

“Observations not only disturb what has to be measured, they produce it… We compel [the electron] to assume a definite position… We ourselves produce the results of the measurement.”

Fascinating, isn’t it?

The New Study

I recently came across a post on Radin’s Facebook page regarding a new study just published in PLOS ONE titled Independent re-analysis of alleged mind-matter interaction in double-slit experimental data.

His Facebook post reads,

Just published. “… this paper is the third independent statistical analysis … showing significant differences in fringe visibility between concentration and relaxation epochs of human subjects….”. The author made several assumptions that differed from ours, which resulted in reduced statistical power. That in turn led to a more conservative conclusion. Even so, anomalies were clearly found in these data that defy ordinary explanations.

In that study, they provided a “two year long experimental dataset in which authors of Radin, et al., 2016 claim to find evidence of mind-matter interaction is independently re-analyzed. In this experiment, participants are asked to periodically shift their attention towards or away from a double-slit optical apparatus. Shifts in fringe visibility of the interference pattern are monitored and tested against the common sense null hypothesis that such shifts should not correlate with the participant’s attention state.”

They concluded that:

The thorough analysis pursued in this paper gives a much broader and full picture of the data than the ones previously published in [1] and [19]. On the one hand, we find undeniable anomalies in the human data with shifts of the fringe visibility in the direction expected by human intention. The fact that fringe visibility decreases when human intention tries to make it decrease, and increases when human intention tries to make it increase is remarkable.

That being said, the authors concluded that they still cannot give a definitive conclusion on mind-matter interaction. However, publications like this are still a huge step forward.

They also mention a very important point: The stigma behind these findings and how it encroaches on belief systems have perhaps not allowed a more rigorous scientific investigation into these subjects.

Given the controversial aspect of this research, attempts to reproduce such an experiment should be done by groups of experts from different fields of research including quantum mechanics, neuroscience and statistics, both skeptics and believers, collaborating to design the most rigorous protocol. Personal beliefs, may they be strongly in favour or against the mind-matter interaction hypothesis, have to be put aside, to collectively pursue a clear and objective investigation of this particular interpretation of the quantum measurement problem.

Here’s another great quote alluding to the same thing:

There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing. —Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

What The Authors Failed To Recognize

Never in these studies do they mention real world examples. Cases of mind influencing matter have been reported throughout history and across many cultures, more specifically in regards to ‘supernormal’ abilities such as telepathy, psychokinesis, and other phenomena that lie within the realms of parapsychology. This is evident in ancient literature, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras to Jesus, Moses, Milarepa, Mohammed, and more.

In 1987, researchers at the Institute of Space-Medico Engineering, as mentioned in the CIA document earlier in the article, publicized a fraction of their work in the form of a film showcasing their work and what they had accomplished.

The film showed a medicine pill moving through an irreversibly sealed glass vial, which occurred in three frames of a 400 frame per second film. (source)

Another release (about Zhang) from the CIA (Research Into Paranormal Ability To Break Through Spatial Barriers) states:

A wooden cabinet 120 by 180 by 60 centimeters was used as a sealed container. Sheets of papers and boards with one  of a kind markings were used as the target objects and placed inside the cabinet on the upper shelf. Without damaging the cabinet or opening the door, the person with ESP was able to remove the target objets and also was able to put them back inside. This demonstrates that even when using especially large container it is possible to completely break through spacial barriers, however, the success rate was much lower and was exceptionally difficult. (Source)(source)

The CIA document linked above provides more examples.

According to Eric Davis, Ph.D, FBIS, from a declassified US Air Force document obtained via the Federation of American Scientists, Shuhuang reported that ‘gifted children’ were responsible for the teleportation of small, physical objects from one place to another. (source)

A study published in the American Journal of Chinese Medicine, as seen in the the US National Library of Medicine, demonstrated that a woman with special abilities was able to accelerate the germination of specific seeds for the purposes of developing a more robust seed stock.  You can read that here.

There are many fascinating examples within the lore of parapsychology.

Many of these results are just as strong, if not stronger, than a lot of the results that come from hard sciences like physics and mechanical engineering. As far back as 1999, the head of the statistics department at UC Irvine, Jessica Utts, published a paper showing that results dealing with parapsychology and mind-body connection are a lot stronger than the results used to approve some of our medications!

The Takeaway

The idea that mind influences matter is not new. From a hardcore scientific perspective, the results may be questionable, but we have to transcend science as its current parameters have become some sort of religion, failing to take into account many factors. A lot of science today has been dominated and taken over by the corporate world. The politicization of science is a real thing, and new science has confirmed the metaphysical world and is breaking down current and old paradigms. Everything from the mind-body connection to quantum physics and parapsychology are showing us how much more we have to learn about ourselves and what we are capable of.

Thing about the implications this could have for our planet? Imagine if billions of people all over the world found peace within themselves, what type of world would we create?
