Psychokinesis: Another Example Of How Consciousness And Reality Are Intertwined

Quantum physics has already shed some light on the role of consciousness and reality. There are multitudes of studies and phenomenon that also show how they are intertwined, and one of them is called psychokinesis.

One (of many) areas of psychic research is Psychokinesis, also know as PK. This encompasses the possible influence of human consciousness on the behavior of physical or biological systems or processes, and comprises several loosely related classes of effect characterized by different scales of energy, forms of manifestation, replicability, and statistical behavior.(1) It’s the ability of consciousness to have a direct effect on our physical material world. It’s the action of mind on matter. (14 section 5.0) PK encompasses much more than just moving objects with the mind, that is more so referred to as telekinesis. It encompasses the idea of consciousness and its correlation to the physical world we perceive around us on a daily basis.

Psychokinesis is one phenomenon out of many that is grouped under the subject of parapsychology. You can’t understand psychokinesis without having a brief background on parapsychological phenomenon within the scientific community, which is considered psychical research. This article will provide a brief background on parapsychological studies and then go more in-depth into the phenomenon of psychokinesis. I will also provide a good deal of evidence throughout the paper to back up my claims.

Psychic phenomenon has always been considered a ‘persistent paradox’ from the perspective of most researchers and scientists within the mainstream world. This is predominately due to a lack of investigation. It’s not fair to condemn a topic without having investigated it first. Psychic phenomenon has attracted man’s attention throughout recorded human history, but scholarly efforts to comprehend them are very young, approximately one hundred years old.  Parapsychologists have been trying to gather experimental evidence for years and although a lot of information has been gathered, psychic phenomenon still seems to be grouped in the category of science fiction to most, which is extremely absurd given the amount of scientific data available on the subject. This is something we need to change, and the recognition of non physical phenomenon and how consciousness can have a direct effect on our physical material world is an important step for the evolution of science, as well as humanity as a whole. Today, the missing link within science is consciousness, and how our emotions, feelings and vibrational frequency play a tremendous role and have great implications on what type of world humans are experiencing.

Critics who argue against psychic phenomenon do so from a place of belief. Meanwhile, there has been numerous, consistent, replicable evidence to support it (as you will see within the article). The problem with parapsychology is that it challenges deeply rooted worldviews held by so many people. When evidence is presented against a belief system that one holds strong, there is a very strong desire to dismiss it and not even look at the evidence, this is called cognitive dissonance and sometimes it can be the minds most common reaction to new truths.

There is a growing realization that ideological factors play a crucial role in many scientific “controversies”. Many have argued that the ‘naturalistic’ world view is more a political or religious ideology than a position that’s supported by evidence.(2)

Materialists have conducted a running war against psi research for decades, because any evidence of psi’s validity, no matter how minor, is fatal to their ideological system. (2)

This controversy (whether psychic phenomenon is real or not) has lasted for quite some time now. Apart from the fact that these concepts challenge world paradigms, another reason for the controversy might be the fact that a large portion of it is dipped in secrecy. Without access to much of the scientific data and observation of and regarding parapsychology, how are we supposed to come to any solid conclusions about it?

We knew the Earth was flat, we knew that we were the centre of the universe, we knew that a man made heavier than air peace of machinery could not take flight. Through out human history, intellectual authorities have pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing or surpressing elements of reality that simply didn’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge  – Terje Toftenes (15)

In 2004, a United States Air Force research project titled, Teleportation Physics Study, authored by Eric Davis, Ph.D., shows that psychokinesis and other parapsychological  phenomenon  have been subject to rigorous  research and documentation for a number of years by several researchers. (14 pg 65 of 88)

One example of this is the 24-year government-sponsored program to investigate ESP and its potential use within the Intelligence Community.  The final report was released in 1995, and the CIA concluded that a statistically significant effect had been demonstrated in the laboratory. This operation was called STAR GATE, and most of its research and findings remain classified.(3) The Department of Defence suppressed a large amount of data from this 24 year study.

Another example of parapsychological research conducted in secrecy was the remote viewing experiment done by the CIA and NSA in conjunction with Stanford university.(4)(5)(6) This program was marked as a special access program, these are programs that have no oversight from the congress, nobody has any idea of them, their findings and what they are used for (14 section 5.0). Remote viewing is the ability of individuals to describe a remote geographical location and its characteristics up to several hundred thousand kilometers away from their physical location. This program lasted for several years, and was shut down unexpectedly with a large portion of the research and findings remaining classified. Individuals within the program were also able to remote view beyond the planet.

These two experiments alone illustrate that science and research at the very highest levels of government were and are very interested in parapsychological phenomenon.  How can the mainstream scientific world dismiss it when the Department of Defense doesn’t? Another explanation as to why these type of phenomenon don’t exist is because many are simply afraid of it, and not ready for it yet.

Recent leaks from Edward Snowden  recently shed light on the black budget. An area within the defense sector that garnishes trillions of dollars a year. The programs within this department are extremely secret, so secret that a 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (7) Judging by the information we already have within the public sector with regards to parapsychological phenomenon, a large portion of this research (again) remains classified. That means all of the scholarly efforts to understand and comprehend this phenomenon cannot be known at large when it comes to public information. This is classified science, which still has enough evidence in the public domain to support its validity, although most peoples intuition already tells them so.

According to our best estimates, more than half of all U.S. government records are classified. For an archivist seeking to preserve and understand our history, that means most of our history is kept secret from us, Think about that for a moment – Richard Dolan (Learn more about what he calls the “breakaway civilization” here)

Now that it’s clear that the Department of Defense remains in possession of most of the information and research conducted with these phenomenon, let’s examine what is currently available within the public domain (apart from the information and papers that are referenced earlier, which provide a great deal of information by themselves alone). What is known in this secretive world could be hundreds of thousands, even million years more advanced compared to the ‘normal  mainstream world.”

One example are human aura and intentions. Not lot ago, a Russian scientist and Princeton professor demonstrated that the human energy field is responsible for changing the physical material world.

We are developing the idea that our consciousness is part of the material world and that with our consciousness we can directly influence our world. With our emotions, with our intentions we can directly influence our world” (8) – Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, Computer Science and Biophysics Professor

Human beings cannot see much of the visible light spectrum, there is a whole world of unseen energy that can be difficult for the mind to grasp without scientific measurements for verification. One method to bridge this gap is bioelectrophotography. The goal of this is to capture these energy fields seen as a light around the body. In the metaphysical world, this energy emission is known as a person’s aura, in the scientific field it’s known as our energy field. This is included in PK because it is the effect of our electromagnetic field on our biological system, it is consciousness influencing and changing physicality.

Bio-electric phenomena has been a part of medicine throughout history. In fact, the first written documents on these events date back to an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph of 4000 B.C. The Greek philosophers Aristotle and Thales experimented with amber and recognized its power to attract light substances. The detection of bio-electric activity is old, and many contemporary ideas of it were actually developed years ago. (9)  Bioelectic and bio-magnetic fields formed by the body have a direct effect on the physical material world. This is one example of known science within the mainstream which could have tremendous implications for health care and more.

Random Event Generators (REGs) are another example. To determine the effects of the minds intention on the physical world, several machines called random number generators have been built, most notably by Princeton. (10)(11) The machine mimics a coin flip, and the results are recorded over a long period of time. In this particular experiment, the machine performed 200 flips per second and produced an average mean of 100 as one would expect. Left unattended, the machine would continue to produce results that suggested a 50/50 change of producing either heads or tails. When human intention was added to the question, what was once a random 50/50 chance of producing heads or tails began to deviate from expectation as the observer began to intend for the numbers to be higher or lower. While the effects of the mind over the machines were not large, they were enough that modern physics could not explain them.

The experiment I am referring to was conducted by Dr Robert G. Jahn, who spent 25 years gathering a large database of empirical data on psychokinesis that clearly suggests the phenomena is a reality. He founded the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research group which has conducted several experiments under controlled, scientific conditions to measure the effect of the power of the human mind using a wide range of instruments.

Jahn showed repeated and consistent results in mentally affecting material substances in the lab, and in the 1980s Jahn attended a meeting on the PK topic at the Navel Research Laboratory, and warned that foreign adversaries could exploit PK to include U.S. military fighter pilots to lose control of their aircraft.  (14 section 5.0)

Reported cases of human beings able to exhibit this phenomenon are also around, although often left in the realm of conspiracy theory. Those who have been reportedly shown to do so are instantly made to look like a fraud, so using them as examples is unnecessary. Maybe there are many who choose not to go public with it. Psychic Uri Geller reportedly demonstrated PK mental bending during a talk that he gave at the U.S. Capitol building. He caused a spoon to curve upward with no force, and then the spoon continued to bend after he put it back down and continued with his talk.  (14 section 5.0)

The Global Consciousness Experiment

The global consciousness experiment is an experiment initiated by the Institute of Noetic Sciences alongside Princeton University (12)(13).

Also working with Dr Jahn was Dr Roger D. Nelson. Instead of testing one individual at a time he used the same methods to test groups of people. Working in group meditations to begin with, he connected 70 REGs in locations around the world to his computer at Princeton. This was called the Global Consciousness Project, also known as the EGG project. It is a multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists, engineers, artists and others. Data has been continuously collected from a global network of physical random number generators (as mentioned earlier) that were located all over the world. This project contains more than a decade of data.

The purpose of this experiment was to examine correlations that may reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world. It illustrated that when millions of people are sharing intentions and emotions the EGG data show meaningful departures from expectation. What this means is that when human consciousness becomes coherent and synchronized, the behavior of random systems may change.

The list goes on, and there are literally hundreds, if not thousands of credible research material to suggest that these type of phenomenon are real. How far down the rabbit hole it goes and what has already been discovered still remains classified to the world of mainstream science. Perhaps we are on the brink of finding out.

Regardless of what our black budget world has already discovered, it’s becoming clear that the masses are waking up to the fact that consciousness has a direct effect on our physical material world. Emotions and feelings are the key to creating change, if more people came from a place of love, understanding and peace from within themselves, a different type of reality would no doubt slowly begin to manifest on this planet, which I believe is currently happening .

The Hero’s Adventure: What Movies Can Teach Us About Facing Our Shadow

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Hero's Journey is a multi-staged adventure whereby the 'hero' grows to become a new version of themselves, one that is evolved and at a 'higher level' per se.

  • Reflect On:

    Movies can be viewed in many ways. Some see it as programming others as inspiration. How can we use what we see in movies in our own lives? To grow and evolve as people? To recognize our true callings vs those of Hollywood?

The hero’s adventure is a term popularised by Joseph Campbell based upon his 1949 work “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”. The late Campbell was an American Professor of Literature and a philosopher who described the adventure one must embark upon to fully realise who he/she is.

A simple explanation from Campbell:

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”

Campbell uses the word monomyth to describe this adventure which was taken from James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake.

According to Campbell the monomyth contains 3 stages, with 17 subsections. Not all journeys contain all sections and no two adventures are the same, yet the hero’s adventure follows a surprisingly similar pattern. The 3 stages are 1. A call to seek out some kind of adventure. 2. A trial or initiatory period where the hero must face an obstacle or series of obstacles. 3. The return back home with that which you were seeking to find. This often repeats in a number of ways, with various steps being repeated, but this is the idea.

The 17 Steps Of The Heroes Adventure:

The Call:

advertisement - learn more
  1. The call to adventure
  2. Refusal of the call
  3. Supernatural aid
  4. Crossing the threshold
  5. Belly of the whale

The Initiation:

  1. The road of trials
  2. The meeting with the goddess
  3. Woman as temptress
  4. Atonement with the father
  5. Apotheosis
  6. The ultimate boon

The Return:

  1. Refusal of the return
  2. The magic flight
  3. Rescue from without
  4. The crossing of the return threshold
  5. Master of two worlds
  6. Freedom to live

When you look to Hollywood movies and best selling fiction books they all follow the same pattern. Star Wars writer, George Lucas, was a friend of Joseph Campbell and famously said that without Campbell there would have been no Star Wars.

Star Wars

If you take Star Wars, it is the perfect example of the Hero’s Journey:

The Call: Luke Skywalker is living a mundane existence, and then while cleaning R2D2 he is shown a holographic recording seeking help from Princess Leia.

The Initiation: Obi-Wan becomes a mentor to Luke, and teaches him to “use the force”. Along the way he meets Han Solo, Chewbacca and other unsuspecting helpers until he completes his apprentice (which he does not know is taking place). Finally after much fighting, Luke is able to rescue Princess Leia and destroy the death star.

The Return: Then he returns home a new man where Leia awards Luke with medals for his heroism.

The Matrix

The Matrix is another example.

The Call: Thomas Anderson is fed up with life at a dead end job and knows there is more to his existence. He has a dream in which his computer types “follow the white rabbit” when someone comes to buy illegal computer programmes from him they ask him to join them on a night out. He declines, but when one of the group turns, she has a tattoo of a white rabbit, so he decides to follow.

The Initiation: Thomas Anderson becomes his computer alias Neo. He meets Trinity, and later Morpheus and is offered to be shown the truth in the form of the red pill (truth) or blue pill (fantasy). He opts for the truth pill and is initiated into a mysterious world where reality as he knew it is actually a computer programme. He gets to download multiple skills, thinks he is The One, but then realises he is not The One. Morpheus gets taken by the agents and he decides to save him.

The Return: Upon trying to save Morpheus he realises he is The One, saves him and defeats the agents. This is him returning with the realisation he is The One, although the return and initiation cross over a little.

This is the same structure you see in Harry Potter, The Wizard Of Oz, Alice In Wonderland, The Alchemist and just about every story based movie there is.

But how is this helpful?

This is the same story we can use as a metaphorical representation of who and where we are in our lives.

If you think life is meaningless and mundane, this means you should be on the lookout for synchronicities and clues of how to break free.

If you have just had a strong urge to go and do something very far removed from your comfort zone that has the potential to change your circumstances, then you probably should.

If you are stuck in a painful situation that seems to have no end, this means you are in an initiation. Being in an initiation does not guarantee you will pass “the test” but at some point you will be given an opportunity to break a cycle or take an opportunity.

If you have just been through an ordeal and conquered your inner (and sometimes outer) demons, bask in the glory, but remember there was 9 Star Wars movies, 4 Matrix movies and 8 Harry Potter books. Your Heroes Adventure may have many chapters, so strap in and try to enjoy the journey.

Much love, Luke.

On Taking Life Too Seriously

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Much of the time in life, we allow ourselves to take situations VERY seriously. This will sometimes turn pain into suffering, or prolong the challenges we face for growth. It also stops us from truly finding peace in life.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you feel a constant sense of anxiety in your life? Underlying everything? Where do you notice you take life or situations too seriously? What do you do to begin connecting back to self, and taking life less seriously?

Do you go through life with constant angst? A feeling deep down that there is always a little bit of stress or a little bit of worry? I’ve been through this. And in some ways, I thought it would never go away. But I focused on self awareness and living in the heart enough to kiss those days goodbye.

We can sure take life too seriously at times can’t we? I mean it’s fair. We have stresses in life that we get caught up in, we go, go, go, go, and often forget to take a moment to breathe. In Western culture, it’s all about obsessing over goals and getting there and telling ourselves sotries about what life will be like when we do finally get there… but what often happens to us when we live this way? We step into unconsciousness. We stop taking time to FEEL.

I want to help us remember to be STILL with this.

Various experiences and events have taken place in my life that have challenged some of my deepest ideals, belief systems and concepts that I felt were a part of me. This has gone on and occurred in my entire 11 year journey of truly changing myself. Whether it had to do with the work I do, friends, the world, relationships or big decisions in life, many things were challenged. It has truly been an incredible ride.

We sometimes might think “when will all the change and ‘chaos’ end?” A good question indeed, but isn’t this what we are here for at this time? To truly look at ourselves, look at all that we hold onto and all that we define our reality with. Literally everything! If you are feeling like you are the only one out there going through this stuff and feel like everything is backwards -that things are constantly being challenged, know that what you are experiencing is perfect, and we must remember to have fun with it!

Not Just A Human Experience

We are not here at this time to simply have ‘a human experience,’ we are here to evolve the human experience. It’s different! Stop looking at the past to tell us what to do, how we should move forward, and what ‘the greats’ did in our past to figure things out. We are not in that time, and the zeitgeist of our time now is not to simply exist but to be present as we deeply evolve the way of life on this planet.

advertisement - learn more

We hear a lot “but we’re human, just embrace that!” That’s all fine, but what does that mean? What is a human? How should we be? Does being human mean accepting the world as it is? Are we capable of more? Can we redefine what it means to be human and what life should look like? Why do we give up so easily on dreaming big about these things?

I used to accept MANY limitations about myself and what I could do. But eventually, I was faced with the chance to let all that go, and reimagine what was possible. Even when everyone told me I was crazy and I couldn’t do what I was trying to do, I used my connection to self and consciousness to create it. Because I believed I was capable of more, and so is everyone else. This is how Collective Evolution, the site your on, came to be.

Embracing Change

After experiencing the many deep questions and challenges I have thus far, overcoming them and moving forward, I have one very special thing that I have reminded myself about over and over and truly understand to a deep level. We are here to play and evolve! None of what we are experiencing is as serious as we think!!

The mind and ego can make things very real, very dramatic, very frightening. I know! But the highest aspect of who we are is always clear, always neutral, and always sharing with us exactly what we need to hear because IT IS US! We are not the mind or the stories it creates that makes things so serious. They are there because that is our challenge. To go beyond the mind and the stories it creates -so we can experience this sensorial world and remember who we truly are (click to listen to my podcast on this topic.)

So let’s remember, whether it’s life choices, relationships, friends, work, family, sports, or everyday events, know that it’s just an experience! We can spend our whole lives always caught up in the drama and the intensity, saying “oh my gosh things are so tough, the world is so crazy, my life is upside down, and I’m so busy!” but where does this lead us? This is a question we must ask ourselves.

If we remain caught up in these perceptions, repetitive patterns of mind, we will continue to miss out on the entire journey we are on because we are lost and caught up in the mind. We perpetuate our so called “suffering” when we make things serious and make them a big deal. When we can see it for what it is, we allow the emotions to subside, allow back in our full potential and know how to take action forward. This is called finding true peace.

I’m not talking about simply accepting things and saying “well get over it” or “that’s how it is, so deal with it.” No. I’m talking about truly seeing things for what they are. Seeing why we color something in a particular way. Seeing the belief system behind why something is good or bad or right or wrong or even why it’s serious!

I promise you, behind every strong emotion, every serious situation, there is a belief system that makes it that way. One that is held in the mind and made real by the mind. But the mind is not YOU! See the story! Let it go and just play! You will find much peace and joy in flowing through your experience in this way.

Have You Realized The Profundity Of Our True Nature?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In life, we typically move about, seeing all material for what we define it as. This makes things convenient in a way, but there is a profoundness to not only seeing beyond these definitions, but also tapping back into full potential.

  • Reflect On:

    Have you ever tried practicing the awareness that you are not your mind nor your body? Why do we identify so strongly with just our physical body, and is it time to begin to remember we are much more than that?

Who we really are has been staring us in the face the whole time.

Take a look at your body, but look at it from a completely impersonal perspective; free of any thought about it at all. Without labels like arms and legs; without any sense of ownership, just as it is. Look in the mirror at your face, your eyes, but look without the thinking mind. This body that you get to use and throw around the joint, is a product of the universe. Conditions were apparently perfect here on Earth for Humans to exist. A magnificent sculpture, carved from stardust, gases, cells, minerals, heat – one of the most complex arrangements of cells and energy you have ever laid your eyes upon.

There is no boundary to the human body; there is no “in here” and “out there.” The body is a constant flow of energy, never a stationary or permanent thing we could pin down. There is a constant flow of air coming in and out, molecules by our skin, bacteria breaking down food in our stomach, there is no boundary between the body and the environment. It’s like a river, never the same body of water in any two moments.

Then, how about all the stuff the body perceives. All the sounds, tastes, smells, visual images and so on. The human body makes the whole world we’re privy to. The brain selects a very narrow band of frequencies and constructs reality according to the bandwidth of what our senses relay for us. The visual spectrum is only a very narrow band, while other sentient beings select out different bands for their viewing pleasure. So reality as we know it, never exists objectively, only subjectively through the being that is observing it. Without an observer what does it exist as? Just a soup of frequencies I suppose.

I find this phenomenal! There are little reality bubbles existing wherever a sentient being is alive. Energy has coalesced into the form of a human being, a giraffe, an ant, a butterfly, a chameleon, an amoeba, and through these configurations, the universe is observing itself. It is having experiences with itself.

1619136_420984308034739_245289130_nSo essentially, the whole world that you exist in – the reality bubble that you spend your entire life in – is entirely made by the human body. Your human body. Everything, all of it. Look at the image your eyes are creating. Look at how immaculate, perfect and impeccably high the resolution is! Check out how infinite the colour palette is. Take another look in the mirror at the wonder of your eyes. Those things stuck in that head, those things that we call eyes are absolutely wondrous biological organs, composed of trillions of living cells; living in harmony, being fed by the fuel you place in your mouth. Those things are taking frequencies of energy, sending it at light speed to your brain, where trillions more cells convert it into a picture. WOW!

And while I’m on that subject: have you ever wondered how electrical signals in the brain – how realistically an infinite amount of neurons in our brain – can create the conscious experience of sound out of electrical impulses? How does something biological turn electricity into the conscious experience of smell? Into the emotion of love, of anger?

So look around you. Look what you’re part of. You’re on a planet zooming through space at hundreds of kilometres per second, circling around in a gigantic galaxy. You’re amongst animals, forests, bodies of water, lightning, rain, drought, plants and soil. You’re amongst life! You’re seeing it unfold right before your eyes, seeing life in all its animation. I don’t see why it should seem like there’s anything else to do, other than admire what we’re amongst, and create.

Just as the bus motors down the street, so too does the galaxy arms revolve around its core. A child eats breakfast, while an asteroid erupts as it passes through an atmosphere. We are as much an expression of this universe as the plants and galaxies. This universe has arranged itself in such complex ways, in such exquisite patterns, so that it may know itself through our eyes. We have become an aperture for energy to know what it inherently is.

When we look deeper into our own nature, we find that things are even more extraordinary than what exists in the physical realm of bodies, animals, plants and stars.

There is this notion of separation in our society, where we exist separately from the outside world of other stuff. We are separate from the table, our house, other people and the whole cosmos. We feel this too, because we feel that we are the human body, or the thinker somewhere in the head. But this notion is learnt, cultivated, but not all cultures prescribe to this way of being at all.

The whole world is consciousness; it all exists within, not out there somewhere. This is the worldview slowly being ushered in by quantum mechanics and eastern traditions. They’ve arrived now at the same point, but there is obvious resistance because the old system composed of survival-of-the-fittest, authority, institutions and competition rely on our illusory separateness for vitality.

Consciousness is the way in which biological functions of firing neurons in the brain are turned into a conscious experience. Consciousness is something transcendent of the physical world, and is therefore never affected by the  realm of form. It is so perfect and complete already, not needing fulfillment or healing in any way.

The thing is, most of us don’t feel this way though. We still feel separate, small, incomplete and not an integrated part of the whole. We still feel like we are locked up inside a head looking out at separate stuff. But there are ways in which consciousness can shift and identify with something much deeper. The first step is usually quieting the mind through meditation. Our thoughts have run rampant, and we’ve taken this incessant internal monologue to be who we are. But if you do one session of meditation, you’ll see that the mind comes in all by itself, starts up fantasies, conversations, judgments and memories all by itself, while you are trying to focus on your breath. While you’re trying to be silent, the mind has other ideas. Meditation shows us we aren’t the thinker at all; it shows us that we are the witnessing presence OF thought.

A thought is as much a sensation as the taste of ice cream is; we’ve just placed too much emphasis and belief in thought. So rather than identifying consciousness with something superimposed upon it (the mind, the “small self”, the ego) we can shine the light back in on itself via techniques like meditation, and identify as pure consciousness itself. We become not only the witnesser of all sensation, but we merge with it, just as we did with the mind. The feeling of self shifts from the mind with all its thoughts and ideas about the world, to sensation. And sensation is essentially the universe! You become the whole universe.
