The War Over Women’s Souls

The war to win over our thoughts, minds, bodies and even our souls has been ongoing for countless decades…and it won’t end anytime soon. However, the reactions to what we say, what we post and what we believe are far more revealing than our stance towards any given issue. Religion is not excluded from this. Although religion is a constant source of conflict, it is not religion that is the issue. It is our attitude towards it. Religion is freedom, which means that we must all find our own path to enlightenment and live with the moral consequences of our choices.
However, there far are more important issues at hand than a global crisis of faith… As our nations are arming up for war, unequal resource distribution is still running rampant. The little resources that we have are provided to economic migrants, while our own citizens are subject to poverty, starvation, sexual exploitation and exposure to the elements.

Any decent counsellor, therapist or doctor will confirm that silence is deadly, especially where hate crimes are concerned. Many homosexuals, transgenders, feminists and African-Americans can attest to the fact that they were punished violently for their life choices. Back then, most looked the other way. Now, these abhorrent hate-crimes have returned to our streets. Ironically, they highlight exactly what happens when a non-believer enters a Muslim country. The punishments sanctioned by law favours the dominant religion, as ours did for countless centuries. We are not accepting their religious laws, as our own, they are forcing them onto us, which is a crime against religious freedom.

No matter how many religious and/or spiritual practitioners adhere to peace, as long as they remain silent, the height of their numbers (and therefore influence) is irrelevant. They are complicit in crimes against humanity, dare I say, war-crimes (genocide) at the highest levels. If they were truly peaceful practitioners of Islam, as they claim, they would die beside us. They would throw themselves in front of extremists, as any good Christian, Buddhist or Hindu should, defending against an impending terror attack. In other words, the strong protect the weak, otherwise what is the use of their strength? They obviously are not strong enough to maintain their own integrity, if their superiority-complex prevents them from doing the right thing.

We don’t need money, power or influence to stand up for our families, our communities and our way of life. All we need is a little courage with a plan of action. The instant that we allow ourselves to be trapped in this web of political correctness, we are sacrificing the truth for the sake of getting along with an oppressive ideology, reinforced by law enforcement officials that once had our complete trust.

For what it’s worth, countless women are being raped daily all over Europe, which means that over half will experience at least one or two more sexual assaults throughout their lifetimes, if not slavery. Their fathers, brothers and husbands may have been offended a few hundred years ago, nowadays many of my clients report that the men in their lives are almost immune to this method of warfare. Their egos are not as easily damaged by such a violent crime, but they are easily led to expect women to ‘get over it’ in a period of 3-6 months, otherwise they often meet their needs elsewhere…and the common populous wonders why humanity is facing several extinction level events.

What May The Future Hold

In this world, anything is possible. Anyone can get away with anything at the right time under the right circumstances… There is only one slight problem with that. Diversity is paving the way to the enslavement of woman. We are expected to show respect and restrain ourselves toward an entirely different culture, when it is almost impossible to be repaid in kind at the best of times (by any culture). So, with every passing day, the nail of political correctness is hammered into the coffin of our Western civilisation….

Contrary to popular belief, Imams across the globe take orders from the same people that control our leaders from behind the scenes. Yet, neither one of us pays this the attention it deserves. Complaining, rape and retaliation are easier methods than to confront that everything we have been told is a lie. Lies that can inadvertently lead us to the truth about all things, whether you believe it or not.

…Truth be told, if Islam continues on its path of world domination, they will drive humanity into extinction. Every race (i.e. white, black, Asian, Arab, Feline, K9 etc.) will experience a significant reduction in numbers. This concerns humans, animals and plants alike, until there’ll be nothing left.

…Truth be told, if mankind continues on its path of planetary exploitation, whatever is above ground will be driven into extinction. Followed by one mass animal extinction after the other, the environment will have irreversibly changed. The plants and animals that survive will be as toxic to us as the atmosphere, the seas and the oceans, until the planet is no longer habitable by our standards.

…Truth be told, if Islam and the Sixth Mass extinction continue on their path unhindered. Chances are worlds will collide with high casualty rates. It is expected that less than a hundred million (if that) would survive above ground.

Liberty Died With Thunderous Applause

Many of the people that I’m in contact with have woken up to the police at their door, others had their articles pulled… The West is evidently no longer a safe place to express our opinion, unless we are prepared to possibly meet a bloody end by doing so. The choice is ours, but we can be guaranteed that our government or law enforcement will continue to support peadophilia, sexual and religious violence. The worst thing is that with every victim that is silenced, we are creating members of society that will not blink an eye, if violent crimes are committed. No one cared when it happened to them, so why should they care, if it happens to anybody else? However, what they’re actually dealing with is feelings of shame, guilt and emotional pain that are fuelling their own self-loathing, which is then projected onto others that have experienced the same. For most unsupported victims, that is normal. Being abandoned has become normal. For an even smaller amount, giving up on life is easier than living with the daily reminders of the incident.

For the most part, sexually abused women loose the ability to trust, when their support networks vanish into thin air. Dependent on the circumstances, in which the assault took place, many women become numb on the inside. They seek to move on, but they can’t feel anything anymore…and no one cares. There is no magic pill or quick solution, only self-realisation can lead to the cessation of suffering for them now.

As the globe keeps turning, their trauma is forgotten by those around them for its disenfranchised nature. I’ve shed too many tears over the travesty of this, but sadly wet eyes don’t change a thing. Only hard work with persistence has the potential to change how much we suffer. Even then, months after an attack, people simply disconnect, because ‘you’re still on about the same thing’. They lack the understanding that sexual violence leaves deep scars that affect personality development, self-image and capacity for empathy. Later on in life, it even has an impact on child-rearing. In reality, women that condone such events won’t lift a hand when it happens to their offsprings, as the social system in Great Britain and Europe taught me repeatedly. Many relatives would rather shift blame or stay away than to assist in the healing process. However, this is only partly their responsibility. Our society does not teach our offsprings how to effectively cope with trauma, which leaves the majority of us vulnerable to a myriad ways of suffering.

What To Do

Every man, woman and child in every country is affected by the current religious struggle for power. Yet, religious leaders are only too aware that the status of their religion is dependent upon the numbers as well as the dedication of their followers. Whatever opposes them can easily be overcome by increasing the former. Here’s what’s inevitably going to happen:

– Islam will aim to establish itself as the majority in France, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

– Any country, in which they successfully establish themselves will serve as their primary base of invasion for neighbouring countries, such as Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Denmark, Hungary and the entire Mediterranean.

– Islam is currently fully surrounding Europe by attempting to seize the whole of Africa.

– By October 2016, the events in Europe will escalate concordant to pre-arranged election dates. The probability that conflicts will escalate in several countries simultaneously is higher than another wave of attacks across European nations.

– Many believe there’ll be a war by December 2016…That Christmas will be celebrated on the run or in hiding. The decorations, if there will be any, will incite fear of attack and religious hatred. However, there is also a great deal of hope that they won’t choose the coldest months of the years to kickstart a war.

The only way to stop a malignant narcissist with sadistic tendencies is to deprive them of that which they desire. Never to yield. Never to surrender…and never to relinquish your personal power. Narcissists don’t take responsibility for their actions, unless forced into the position. They will resort to all kinds of manipulation, such as shifting blame, shaming and complete denial. Their ego will not allow them to realise their mistakes or feel the horror behind what they’ve done, otherwise who they are would be shattered.

Sharia law has become the enablers code for peadophilies and sexual offenders across the world. It allows men to shame women and humiliate them at every step, even beat them publicly whenever they deem just. This elicits submission to prevent further punishment, as a rather dark by-product of the instinct for self-preservation. In addition, women that speak against Islam are being labelled as Islamophobic, as if our right to free speech is disregarded, when it comes down to an oppressive religious regime that does not recognise women as human.

A narcissist does not see a difference between you and them. For them, you are an extension of them. You serve their needs and they don’t have to serve yours, because their needs are more important. Their mere presence should be enough to entice you into bending over backwards. A malignant narcissist is not so different, but they are far more likely to harm and even destroy the object of their affections. If they cannot have it, no one will. On mass, this is a recipe for disaster, hence the female population in the Middle-East reaches a desperate low-point every few decades, and they are forced to ‘branch out’. When coupled with sadistic tendencies, female genocide becomes routine, simply to maintain control… Islam does not seek support from the West, they seek its submission to their religion. For women and children, that means we will be vulnerable every day until something changes or we will be forced to live by their views. Sadists seek to turn those around them into sadomasochists… In sexual relationships, this entails a form of continuous torment that the mind cannot protect against, if unprepared. Women are often not taught how to protect against pregnancy or induce a miscarriage without self-harming. So, they become breeding-machines in captivity that gradually dwindle into suicidal ideation. (Fasting or a hunger-strike often induces a miscarriage, which should be mentioned is prohibited in Islam during pregnancy, but only if maintained with great self-control.)

For a narcissist, pregnancy is a symbol of ownership. It reinforces their control over the mind, body and spirit of their victim. Worse, in Islam, they often prey on the sentimentality of women by counting on the fact that they will develop an emotional attachment to become slaves to their male offsprings. Should the head of the house pass away, ownership falls to the oldest, closest male of the family, leaving their women no chance of escape from tyranny.

Tips & Tricks

– Don’t confront a narcissist. Wait until they confront you. Then resist and stand your ground, while exerting an air of confidence.

– When a religious narcissist has their eyes set on attaining a specific goal, they will twist scripture to suit their needs. The easiest tactic against this is to reference their scriptures by the letter and be prepared to prove it. (More often than not, things will get violent long before you have the chance to pull out a book)

– When they profess love and peace but never show it, confront them with verifiable, undeniable facts of religious abuse and/or genocide.

– They’ll talk, but hardly listen, which makes them prone to speak over and interrupt people that do not agree with their viewpoint. If they cut you off every time that you open your mouth, speak in keywords. (Pick the most hard-hitting, relevant word in your response and guaranteed that it’ll elicit a reaction immediately)

Enlightenment Versus Submission


What is the concept of religion? Or more importantly, why is it?


Religion has become an all-encompassing system that functions in all essence like a corporation. The Vatican, for example, is an arms stockholder and a bank with great influence in the corporate community. Our modern representation religion has strayed far from its intended purpose…It no longer serves as a voice of reason or compassion, but detachment from the people that it serves. Corruption in any institution can only take hold, if organised elements within it act on delusional beliefs that do not benefit the greater whole. Although many religious scriptures are hardly embodiments of peace or provide more than a handful of useful principles, not all of them have been edited, suppressed or destroyed. Some still offer guidance toward understanding a higher power…an essence that existed prior to this multi-verse.

It’s Not About Colour, It’s About Freedom & Equality

Featured

“Can you step back from your own mind and thus understand all things? Giving birth and nourishing, having without possessing, acting with no expectations, leading and not trying to control: this is the supreme virtue.” (Lao Tzu)

We are a diverse, multi-cultural world. We are all a part of a global community that we all help shape…We are one people that cannot be separated by religion, colour, creed or race.
You may worship as you choose, but as soon as you infringe on the religious freedom of others, there’s hell to pay… Equality is a two-sided coin. That means Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians and Muslims have to respect each other with equal measure. There is no ‘one true religion’…There are only paths to self-realisation. Paths that we should be able to choose freely ourselves, according to what resonates deep within us.

Islam does not differentiate. Like the Christians of old or the Sith…Islamics deal only in absolutes. Since the religious system abandoned concepts that allow critical thinking and independent judgement, it has become a religion of genocide. An archaic, outdated system that still strives to take all things for themselves and rewrite our history to make it theirs.

How long can a religion based on femicide last? How long until there’s only a few hundred thousand women? How long until there’s just a handful? In every religious state, women are prized possessions. Yet, in those that view them as second class citizens, a large majority of women are kills before they even reach the end of puberty. In more civilised areas, they are given to suitors as children and are simply discarded or divorced once they are too old for their acquired tastes. Generally, this happens between the age of 15-16. Approx. 4-6 years after they were forced into a sexual relationship.

In 2013, men outnumbered women on the planet by roughly 58 million, according to the World Bank. In January 2015, men outnumbered women by 60 million. In fact, China has around 50 million more men than women, and India 43 million. This accounts for 76% of the male surplus worldwide. Russia have it totals up as a global excess of 60 million. Countries in the Arabian peninsula are the most unbalanced. (Qatar was is of the most extreme examples, with women making up less than one in four of the population)

Only one year later, this dynamic has radically changed. One year later, men now outnumber women by approx. 110 million, as a result of millions of unnecessary deaths, involving women. (Due to the lack of statistical data in certain countries, this number represents a gross estimate of how the global population has changed from the end of 2015 to the beginning of 2016) This radical shift has many contributing reasons, such as the preference of men over women, which leads to gender selective abortions and female infanticide. However, the root cause behind this worsening gender imbalance, as a whole, is femicide (which includes honour killings, executions, massacres, stonings, beheadings etc.)
In Arab countries, men heavily outnumber women as a control factor. The protocols that women are not permitted to leave their homes unaccompanied were originally intended for the use of religious scripture during wartime. It has no use outside of the Jihad, which leads us to my next point. During an Islamic takeover, women represent the future generations of the enemy. The customs of radical Islam is to rape and kill or force women to breed in captivity. Regardless of their skin-colour or country of origin, the freedom of women is at great risk with the rising influence of Islam over the West.

Before the migrant crisis, every second murder of a woman (in Germany) was committed by a spouse. Every fourth women is suffering from or experienced domestic violence… The migrant crisis is bringing all of this to light by showing us where we are headed, if we do not get our priorities straight. Yes, women have equality in the West, but we still earn less…Our vote is ignored just as intently as that of a man. Worse yet, we are abandoned even by our gender.
Each time we stand up for the religious freedom of Islam, as women, we are betraying our own kind. In other words, we dishonour and disrespect the heritage of every woman, who has come before us. Women, such as Curie and Nightingale, made astonishingly great strikes for womankind, and how have we repaid them? By taking all the freedom that we have fought for, and using it to abolish our democratic rights!

How many women have died to protect the freedom of all women? Not as many as are about to once again.

Historically, each time men outnumber women across the globe, there are socio-economic repercussions. What accounts for this current growing imbalance is the surplus of young, unmarried male migrants. Not to mention that Islamic leaders across the world are encouraging 4+ children. Countries, in which contraception and childlessness are punishable offences, greatly contribute to this massive population growth by adding to numbers that are already unsustainable.

Hypothetical: A friend of mine asked me about a week ago, “what would happen if radical Islam were to take over the planet?” The global number of women would be significantly reduced within less than a year. During the first year of a religious takeover, the casualties would be extremely high. Millions, if not billions would easily lose their lives for being outnumbered from the beginning. In the second, there would be a period of coercing conformity. Again, millions would die for either failing to do so, being unable to and from general maltreatment. Religious commitment can be very much like a compulsion… It wouldn’t matter if they knew that they’d be killing the last woman on Earth, they wouldn’t be able to help themselves. It’s that obsessive compulsive nature and lack of forethought, which could drive the number of (men and) women down to less than a million in very short time. Not to mention the global institutionalisation of peadophilia as well as underage marriage that’d contribute to the death of billions annually. If that level of femicide continued unchecked on a global scale, in less than 3 generations, there would only be a handful of women left…until the point where the majority of men could spend an entire lifetime without ever having laid eyes on a woman.

As stated in one of my earliest posts, an overwhelming majority of women under Sharia Law do not reach the end of puberty. Often they do not reach an age, at which their body can handle pregnancy. Simply because some women menstruate at a younger age does not mean their bodies are equipped to deal with pregnancy. Maturing is a complex process for men and women alike. In fact, the rate of complications is astoundingly high. That notwithstanding, the earliest age to facilitate a pregnancy with a manageable success-rate is 14, but the death-toll in medically unequipped countries is considerable in comparison to the West. As a side-note, in a rape culture, medical services are more equipped to deal with underage pregnancy. Considering the number of 14 year olds that abort or carry the child to term in the United Kingdom is the highest in Europe already without an unrestricted migrant flow.

Benefits Fraud: All over the world, pensioners receive payments without the need to attend the. Jobcentre or Welfare offices on a weekly basis. As decent as that may be for an elderly lady with only one decent working hip, there’s only one problem: Anyone can sneak in, dispose of the body and keep cashing the checks…And this is exactly what has been happening few and far between. Contrary to popular belief in Western societies, as the age of a sex offender goes down the age of the victim goes up. This often does not apply to crimes of opportunity.

Child Abduction: Since the surge of economic migrants, the number of attempted and actual abductions on playgrounds, school properties and the open road have risen exponentially. Do not let your child or teenager go out on their own! And even if you accompany them, anticipate trouble. The current locations to beware of are playgrounds, schools, swimming pools, beaches, hiking paths, mountain walkways and other family destinations.

Younger and older generations need to pull together avert more hate crimes aimed towards women. We are mothers, wives, sisters and daughters…and we need to stand together, because deserve the right to be safe inside our homes and step outside our front door without fear of victimisation…without becoming a target of cultural gender-bias.

The Assassination of Jo Cox

“In politics, if something doesn’t go the way you want, shoot someone. It works every time. Just like it did with the London Riots…Just like it’s working now. As long as there’s a patsy, no one cares who’s actually behind it all.”

How To Defend Against Multiple Attackers – Part 2

What you are about to read is highly controversial and disturbing. This blog does not take any legal responsibility for your actions, so if you try any of what you’re about to read, it is at your own risk!

Sex Attack

Don’t die for your possessions. As long as you’re looking at a simple mugging, just hand over your wallet. If they’re after more, however, you have every right to defend yourself. Bear in mind, there is the possibility that you are confronted by only a fraction or half the group, while the others lie in wait for an opportune moment to reveal themselves. In the case of 1 against 30 combat-trained assailants, only the most skilled martial artists walks away unscathed, so be realistic.
Every woman should have a basic knowledge of self-defence, the will and ability to apply it in life-threatening situations. Without the ability to act in self-defence, all the skill and force of will are of limited use. For many women that have never taken a punch to the face, it renders them completely immobile. Many self-defence classes do not advertise the fact that when anyone takes a punch, they have to force themselves to bounce back. To push through any haziness and let the adrenaline kick in. If need be, they force the mind to compensate for the pain and run on auto-pilot for a second, but they do whatever they need to do to stay conscious. They know on every level that if they go down after the first punch, they are not going to get a second opportunity. They may wake up restrained or tied down or they may wake up during or after rape. More importantly, they are going to be at the mercy of their captor(s), which means that they may die at their hands.
This may be much to take in, but it’s vital that women understand that a sex attack is not just 5 minutes and afterwards they’re thrown into the streets out of a van like in an 90’s crime thriller. The migrant crisis has shifted the entire dynamic of rape. Whereas it was statistically more likely to survive, that is no longer the case. Every other day, young girls, teenagers and women are left barely alive after 24-72 hour sex-sessions with 5-50 men and only one or two female participants. The younger the victim, the more likely the internal organ damage is going to be fatal…Regardless of how many participants. Under the age of 10, for example, repeated force can easily result in major blood-loss. It may take hours until the blood-loss results in the loss of unconsciousness, but inevitably the damage done is irreparable.

On a related note, the sexually transmitted diseases in survivors are yet to become a public issue, as none of them are officially “curable”. Despite the fact that corporations profit from every single tragedy without alleviating any suffering whatsoever, survivors do not have to cope with the situation by themselves. Their grief is openly disenfranchised, but that does not mean it is unnatural. In a rape culture, where society prefers to turn a blind eye, women have to look after themselves and one another to heal after such an ordeal. There are many support networks for men, women and children that have experienced all kinds of abuse.

Side-Note: Instead of going out to meet a rapefugee, go out and meet the homeless or unfortunate in your area. Volunteer to support survivors of the migrant sex attacks or speak to an apostate of Islam. In other words, inform yourself without putting yourself in harms way. Don’t take any unnecessary risks…Many women that have insisted they’ll gather evidence to support Islam is a peaceful religion have been raped and killed.

Now that we’ve reviewed what happens on average during one of these attacks, here are a few tricks that were not covered in the previous post:

  • Sex-Attacks happen when you least expect them (i.e. jogging, shopping, way to or from work, the nursery, the gym or any other publicly accessible location)
  • The only way to take punches is to get punched.
  • The body has to become desensitised to the experience of taking a hit in order to stay standing and conscious
  • When about to be hit and you cannot step out the way, relax and soften your body.
  • Brace for and absorb the impact, then let it to fuel your momentum to strike back.
  • The hits that you don’t expect or see coming are often said to be the most painful.
  • The goal to anticipate, brace and block every strike is only achievable with a small number of opponents, incl. a few years of highly dedicated training.

For Women

  • When faced with an opponent superior in height and strength, use your intelligence
  • There are no rules: Push your thumbs into their eyes, kneecap them, sink your teeth in their necks, close your eyes and rip or use those heels as lethal weapons.
  • Whatever gets you out alive, regardless how psychotic (unless you are fully prepared to die or accept the consequences of what surviving such an attack may mean)
  • If guns are legal, where you are. Get two, purchase several clips and boxes of ammo. One gun and box of ammo solely for the handbag. The other can be carried on your person in a concealed manner.
  • Sex attacks limits your use of weapons, whereas home invasions are a morally grey area. Even in England, where knife-bans are being implemented in specific regions on a trial basis…If you are attacked in the kitchen, a chef blade (and frying pan for defence against the knife-wielding sort) is legally justifiable.
  • The ultimate goal of self-defence is not being required to use it.
  • Whatever weapon of self-defence is legal to use, ensure you have it ready in hand before confronted by any attackers. The chance is you won’t have any time to do so otherwise.
  • The more time to train, the more prepared you’ll be for the real thing
  • Other than getting punched in the head or face, there’s no way to learn not to pass out. Attend a boxing gym. The body learns to adjust to punches that would otherwise cause you pass out fairly quickly, when the circumstances demand it.
  • If you have one, give your reinforced (motorcycle) helmet a dual purpose and use it to shield your head when you know an attack is imminent

Home Invasion

A home invasion allows you to control the situation through preparation. Be creative. There are an infinite number of ways to make a window entrance into a hidden trap. For what it’s worth, I once cared for an elderly woman, whose house was broken into by a burglar that climbed through the window and instantaneously fell through the floor-boards onto the concrete cellar steps. Unsurprisingly, he remained unconscious in the locked cellar until the authorities arrived, but things could have looked very differently. So, here’s what you can do pre-emptively:

  • Install Reinforced Locks, Doors and Windows
  • Screw Dense, Reinforced Metal Bars To Windows
  • Reinforce All Entrances with Wooden or Metal Barricades
  • Obtain Firearm Licence and Training
  • Attend a Dojo or Take Private Martial Arts Lessons
  • Join The Neighbourhood Watch
  • Build Non-Lethal Booby-Traps for Burglars (please be ensure that they can’t be accidentally set off and don’t just let it sit there unmaintained or unchecked until used months later)

Imagine that one that dark night, you awaken to a massive thud at the front door. From that moment, dependent on the size of your residence, you have under 60 seconds to prepare. For families, the sleeping arrangements often allow children to seek refuge in their parents bedroom in case of an emergency, but that implies there is a brace-period of some kind in-between the break-in and any physical confrontation. In other words, without a brace-period, just rolling over to grab your weapon of choice and get out of bed will things cut very close… Too close. By the time that a group or a few individuals have made it to the bedroom, you’ve lost. You have one room left to the defend, from which you’re most likely not going to get out of.

Exit Strategy: Unless you possess the skills and equipment to withstand a home invasion, perpetrated by a group of 15+, you must learn to assess the situation. Know when it is best to quietly sneak away and how you can do so. If you sleep on the second floor, make sure that you have more than one emergency exit, but ensure that its not visible from the outside. If the bedroom is large enough and somewhat obscured from other windows, you may have the space to store a ladder to climb out the window. Conversely, if you live in an apartment building, you may have access to a fire escape. Dependent on where you live and the tools you have at your disposal, the escape route you design has to be laid out carefully to suit your strengths.

Migrant home invasions may seem opportunistic, due to the weapons used for the break-in and inability to get a confession. At least with a lock-pick, the justice system would be able to evidence the premeditated nature of these attacks, but as they use less sophisticated means to gain entry, it becomes hard to prove. As stated earlier, home invasions are a grey zone. It is your constitutional right to defend your family and yourself in your own home.

The purpose of these random, premeditated attacks on women is to send the message that no one is safe. Not even in their own homes or bodies. That’s why they call it terrorism, because even when they are doing nothing…the uncertainty and fear they’ve created continues. Since Orlando, people have much to be afraid of. Governments across the globe are turning against their people…And that can scare anyone out of their minds. It makes us not only vulnerable to attack, but also defenceless. Or would you dial 999, after almost getting raped, only to most likely be fined for using pepper-spray or prosecuted for unreasonable force when you were clearly outnumbered? No, most people move in with each other or just arrange emergency contacts to help them. They turn their back on the law, when it no longer serves to protect them from harm and serves to imprison them instead. We are one step from returning to a time, when having trusted friends to dispose of bodies wasn’t commonplace but a regular occurrence that went unspoken.

Force Through Freezing: Whatever you choose, I urge you to think carefully. Every decision we make has its moral repercussions, even if we are never prosecuted for any crime committed. When the mind is paralysed with fear, we can’t be pre-occupied with philosophical debate. We freeze, we die.
A soldier would say that you are dead already the moment they break through the door, therefore you have nothing to lose. A monk would say that you were never born and that you can never die, because you are infinite consciousness, which equally implies you have nothing to lose. This universe may be an accident. It may be a glitch, a test or a holomovement, but whatever it is…unless we try protect those we love from suffering, none of this is of any consequence.
The reasons why people freeze are simple, but uniquely diverse. Some are afraid and do not truly wish to hurt anyone, others are pre-occupied thinking about what might happen. All of these reasons have one thing in common: The situation is bringing up all this unprocessed content, while the mind is scrambling to find a way out. (1) Failing to find any suitable behaviour, often due to lack of combat training, they freeze. (2) They know what to do but are hesitant, inexperienced first-timers, causing them to freeze (3) They have not decided how or whether to defend themselves. More often than not, they don’t know how far they are willing to go, which can either be a disadvantage or lead to psychotic violence and/or extreme overkill.

Combat & Invasion Tactics

The first question you must ask yourself, are you prepared to take a life in self-defence? If not, create a strategy that immobilises as many attackers as possible without inflicting fatal injuries. In any case, you have to render multiple attackers completely useless in a very short period of time. For that you need to understand, every battle has its physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects. The first strike does not just serve to defend yourself. It is an open statement that allows your opponent to assess your skill, strength and determination. If the attack is feeble, they are more likely to overpower you in a group. If there is a pause or hesitation between one strike and the next, they may gain the upper hand. Therefore, your defensive strategy has to be conducted in one fluid movement. The least time between attacks, the more protected you will be. The ideal timespan between strikes should be one second, leaving just enough time for one strike per assailant. So, make it count. Educate yourself in basic anatomy and physiology!

Study the anatomical weaknesses of the human body. Learn how to maximise the potential of your attack with minimal effort. Use the momentum of their attack against them. First of all, when an oncoming attack is imminent and multiple attackers are charging towards you, you’ll feel the desire to step backwards. Remember, any ground, you give, is ground that you’ll have to fight for with tooth and nails. Hence, soldiers are desensitised, so that they are able to stand still and blankly stare at an attacking force, waiting move through them without hesitation, once they get close enough.

As they charge, they are vulnerable from a distance. The more you render immobile through non-fatal means, before they can get to you the better. Apart from an automatic pepper-solution dispersal system at the front door, or other high-tech security measures, the selection of choice is generally limited by technical skill or accessible long-distance weaponry. (Cross-bow, nail gun etc.)
(On a related note, Home Alone offers some creative ways to use basic everyday objects for self defence, but in case things don’t go according to plan, anything can be used as a weapon, if you’re creative enough)

The easiest means to defend yourself is to make it almost impossible to get to you. If there’s only 3 perpetrators, your preventative measure should hit them hard enough that they can’t get far. Every window, every door and every weak spot is a possible entrance point from which people can converge on the residence, so ensure that you have all your bases covered.

Warning: Booby-Traps aren’t just explosive charges, they can be made of anything that slows down an attacker in a camouflaged manner. Although not all are lethal, they’re heavily regulated. Take some additional time to study the law and follow it to the letter. Obtain the expertise and licences necessary to use them, dependent on where you live. If you have an understanding, pro-survival attorney or friend in the legal industry, inform them of your plans and discuss possible legal concerns. They’ll most likely remind you that any trap can be potentially lethal, if all goes wrong.

Trip Wire: A trip wire should be as thin and invisible as possible. If it serves multiple functions, I’d recommend the kind of transparent carbon-fibre, which is sharp enough to inflict small lacerations around the ankles or calves. With multiple attackers, this can out one of out commission, plus however many the mechanism at the end of the trip-wire can take care of. Whereas some prefer to use the trip-wire as an intruder alert, it’s often counter-productive. Unless you’re looking at a highly sophisticated set of economic criminals, you’ll be awakened by the noise of a window or front/back-door breaking. Anyhow, you’d be better off connecting that wire to something capable of disabling 1-5 people or seal off the path to the communal areas.

Under the Floor: Concealed traps hidden under wooden floor-boards at a door or window serve as another suitable means maim a burglar. For the more technologically equipped, a pressure sensor can be used, but that’s just one idea. Defence in the home is limited by creativity and perhaps madness. The only limits that exist are in the mind. Contrary to popular belief, the more creative you can be, the less or more lethal you can be. For example, electrical charges sufficient enough to stun, tase or even kill could easily be installed through miniature holes in the floorboards with something to direct the current that can be raised and lowered manually. However, this is highly controversial, legally grey territory and should not be tried at a whim. (Just please take into account that family members could accidentally stumble onto any trap implemented before its time, if they’re not equally educated on arming and disarming it. Beware teenagers and general ignorance!)

As stated before, there are an infinite number of variations, when it comes down to booby-traps. If we won’t be able to avert a Third World War, it may be useful to know that the Geneva convention will most likely be thrown out fairly quickly…It’s one of the fastest means to escalate a war to its peak in the shortest period of time available. For those that don’t know much about the Geneva convention, it prohibits the use of excessively torturous weapons, such as spring-bullets and depleted uranium rounds etc. (and unofficially, directed frequency weapons…)

Door-To-Door Massacres

For those worried about a door-to-door massacre, the objective during such an is to delay the attackers and deny them entrance into the property. For a massacre, fire is on or the most useful weapons, as long as you keep in mind to use top-grade chemical fire retardants to prevent the spread into living areas. Few attackers will step through a pit of fire too large to leap over…They’ll either divert more manpower and resource, which is useless against a napalm-based fire. It’d easily melt the asphalt or concrete at the front of the house in a short while, but if done properly…Most do not have the skill or materials to put it out until the fire brigade arrives.

Warning: When playing with fire, expect the worst. Keep it away from your house, but in-between you and the attacking force. That means lay it on pathways, your front and back garden…but use it to seal every available entrance. Hell, if possible, you could even enclose the property in a ring of fire wide enough that no Olympian Medallist would be able to jump through. More importantly, expect that any fire may still grow out of control, no matter how many precautions you take, so ensure that you have a contingency plan, if it does spread to the house or neighbourhood. Gas masks can also be a very useful thing to have, if an attacking force attempts to burn you out of your home or aim to use the fire you’ve laid against you. It should be noted that this cannot be done with napalm. In the military, as soon as an infantry is confronted with Napalm, the objective is to get around it. When all paths to all entrances and ground floor windows are cut off, this is not an option, as long as the fire is laid wide enough. However, that often doesn’t stop an attacking group from converging on the only resisting force. – In videos of refugee centres and blocks, you’ll often notice a lot of rubbish lying around…Seemingly chucked on the floor at random, but if you look more closely, they connect burnable pieces of cardboard, newspaper, mixed in with bits of plastic to create a trail along the walking path and over the patches of grass. One match and the entire entrance to the apartment block is inaccessible to law enforcement until the fire brigade arrives.

Physical Conflict

A physical confrontation should be avoid at all cost, especially when vastly outnumbered and outgunned. However, its advantageous to consider how to defend yourself should the need arise. Contrary to popular belief belief, attackers are rarely unarmed. The more attackers are coming up against resistance, the more they’ll utilise firearms and knives to gain instant co-operation out of fear. (Mind you, in some of my more gruesome case studies, there was a significant percentage of convicted offenders that exhibited the desire to carve new orifices to penetrate. So, it is truly a matter of gauging the extent of your attackers likely intentions) Although knife fights can last up to 10-15 minutes in Hollywood, in reality, they last under 30 seconds. Often the first to deliver a successful strike walks away.

In all honesty, snuff film footage of amateurs against experienced attackers is highly depressing. After 3 hours of ‘block’, ‘slash’, ‘dead’ in almost every possible variation, (including even the Prometheus school of running), I decided to approach to the situation from a different angle.

Size Matters: The longer the reach of your weapon, the better. You’ll either want to be as far away from the attacker as possible, or so in their personal space that they cannot attack until it’s far too late. (Throw knives as primary and back-up weapons may also be useful. Just be sure to practice)
Ideally, you should be carrying separate weapons, equipped for long-distance and close combat, when facing multiple attackers. Without the legal use of firearms, the situation becomes rather violent and bloody. Without any form of long-distance weaponry, there is only one way to confront and subdue multiple attackers: From the first strike onwards, your defence tactic has to frighten even the most combat-hardened attacker. It has to be gruesome, but preferably non-lethal, unless you are truly fighting for your life.

Protective Clothing: If all fails, a stab vest, chainmail, kevlar or any form of armour can be of extreme use. Even if they’d manage to deliver an otherwise fatal blow, the worse they could do is fracture a rib or two or cause moderate trauma to the chest.

Tips & Tricks For Women

Muscle may weigh more, but it also takes more nutritionally-dense food and regular exercise to maintain. Also, it is a great psychological disincentive when a woman has more muscle than her attackers and knows how to use it. Not to mention, the tactical advantages of strength as well as skill in a neat, sexy package, disguised by appearance.

When attackers prey on fear, call their bluff. Be confident. If they are going to try to rape and kill you, they’ll have do over your dead body. Whatever they are going to do to you is nothing compared to the moral consequences of their actions. Just concern yourself with your own survival and that of those under your care, failing that…I personally wouldn’t want to be taken alive, but I’d fight until my last breath. This is a decision that should never be taken lightly, but it is one every woman has to make for herself. Particularly for single-mothers with young daughters. Many women can easily be driven to the degree of desperation, when killing one’s offsprings to save them from harm may seem justifiable, but investing all that energy in self-defence can be much more powerful. The miraculous feats we are capable of to shield our children from harm should be enough evidence of that. If we have the strength to lift a car during pregnancy, we have access to the same amount of strength to defend our children after birth. We just have to make up for with intelligence, where brute force will not do.

When an opponent is taller, there many advantages and disadvantages. However, it is often an unspoken truth that the shorter one is, the more one vicious and agile one has to be from the first strike onwards. Throw away any inhibitions, they’ll only slow you down in a fight. When the adrenaline surges, don’t resist it. Simply go with the flow. Let your actions be fuelled by whatever you feel in that moment, but don’t allow yourself to be overpowered by emotions…Channel them through your body and throw your entire weight into it.
On a related note, the sex attacks across Europe have shown that the attackers objective is to knock women out and restrain them, while almost fatally injuring any man present.

Game Over: An old friend once gave me a piece of advice, he said that it is more important to know when the game is over. Women have to consider the brutal reality of what will happen to them, if they are captured and even imprisoned for breeding purposes. In some ancient societies, it was a custom to put the children to sleep and then administer a fatal dose of whatever compound was available at the time. However, other societies operated far differently. For example, Norse communities would prefer to slit their throats, whereas in Japan, women were educated to slide a short blade up behind the solar plexus to pierce the heart. Although euthanasia or ritual suicide in these cases should never be an option, it can be a more compassionate solution to seemingly endless suffering.

How To Defend Against Multiple – Part 1

Relationships in Times of Mass Extinction

Any man is liable to err, only a fool persists in error.

– Marcus Cicero

The refugee crisis of 2015 (that is still waiting to reach its peak) has highlighted the Western resource and wealth inequality to the extent, where people are no longer able to deny its effects. The most common stressor that disturbs the balance of any relationship is money problems. It is one thing to be unable to afford going out on Friday night, it is quite another to scavenge for food. Women and men alike have their breaking point. However, it appears that over the previous years, men have been more greatly affected by the recessions than women. Once survival is threatened, all bets are off. The balance of power in the relationship is altered beyond the point of return.

One does not have to be mentally or emotionally unstable to break it off, when one’s partner is unable to provide. In many Western cultures, this behaviour is even encouraged. In fact, one would have to be either so mentally stable/unstable that it borders on sociopathic tendencies to stay. However, it also results in countless broken homes and single parents fending by themselves. Although everyone should have to prerogative to act as they choose, it is hard times that determine the strength of a relationship. If we all were to stray at the first sight of trouble, mankind would have never made it to present day. Nonetheless, many blood-lines most likely only survived, because they did whatever was necessary to ensure the continued existence of themselves and therefore their genetic lineage. One may argue that the current disposable nature of society has driven its inhabitants to view their relationships as equally disposable. While divorce sky-rockets, few strive to patch things up, regardless of what mistakes were made. The problems have begun to extend beyond the relationship and can rarely be reconciled, merely overcome.

For example, adultery has less of an impact on the outcome of relationships than money concerns. Whereas many can forgive the occasional slip-up, constant financial worries are overcome far less often. From personal experience, I can attest to the fact that long-term relationships are hard work, but they are also very rewarding, if you are with the right person. After two years, the relationship is still relatively fresh, however, many couples decide to tie the knot after approximately a year (dependent on age). In other words, the length of a relationship only partly affects the impact of financial woes. When women are put in the position of fuel poverty, starvation or homelessness, the majority will seek a more suitable mate that can meet their base requirements. However, the minority are either so in love that it does not matter or they are invested in the relationship for different reasons. Although it is often assumed that sex is a primary reason for this, I’ve always found it insufficient and unrealistic. Sexual pleasure can cloud the mind so far, before other needs become more pressing. Besides, homeless couples rarely have the opportunity to be intimate. Their bond is one much deeper. Theirs is one that goes beyond the material. In fact, research suggests couples that endure traumatic experiences or persistent hardship are more likely to stay together. In a way, the trust that is forged between couples when surviving life-threatening circumstances is profound and far less often betrayed. Couples describe a sense of knowing their partner at their best and at their worst. However, they also emphasise the uncertainty of entering a new relationship with a new partner that may not cope as effectively. One particular couple that I was acquainted with suffered great ordeals, only for the husband to pass on from a fatal head-wound two months after they had finally resettled. The wife found herself at the beginning of a complicated, long-winded grieving process, in which she closed herself off from the world. The one thing we had in common at the time was the fact that she could not imagine a relationship with any other type of man. When she began dating after a year of therapy, she asked me to call her an hour in to provide her with an emergency exit strategy. Despite the fact, she was comfortable socialising, she was bored out of her mind, listening to his macho tales. All she could hear was incessant jabbering about the newest gadgets, newest fashion and the woe-is-me tales of ex girlfriends that were probably drawn way out of proportion. As was evident, they were rather ill-matched. For most women, a financially stable man is irresistibly attractive, but wealth can disappear in an instant. Bankruptcy, financial hardship or other unfortunate experiences affect the way a minority of women operate. Particularly, when it comes down to selecting a mate.

Few men and women cope well during financial turmoil, which is understandable, since it is a matter of working progress. In Apocalypse & the Middle-Classes, I explained that different social classes cope differently when disaster strikes. The lead-up to mass extinction is grinding society to a halt, in some of the most inhumane ways to keep itself going for as long as possible. Without adequate food production and distribution to all of the planet, over a quarter of the species already live in poverty without proper nutrition. Adding the refugee crisis to the equation only shows how thin we are stretching ourselves with highly destructive tools to feed, clothe and shelter all. Once more, it highlights inadequate wealth and resource production, distribution and renewal. The resources we take, we do not replenish. The manner through which we produce these resources is not merely flawed but environmentally hazardous. Without addressing the root cause of our problems, we are and/or will be forced to resort to extreme measures to survive. In sum, our way of living inevitably affects our reproductive behaviour. For some women that means trading up, for others that means turning tricks, but for a small minority it means to reflect on the bigger picture. Each of those three coping mechanisms have their roots in fallen civilisations. Although prostitution is thought of as the oldest of all professions, it is generally discouraged and disapproved of in modern society, even in the most dire circumstances. Therefore, it is a road less travelled. Looking for another mate is considered the more logical option. But when everyone is just as worse off, who are you going to choose? Mass extinction invariably impedes on the logic of reproduction, in times where the survival of the species is threatened. This could result in reproductive behaviour reverting back to a time when the sacrifice of one’s own life for the life of the infant was a common occurrence. In other words, we may revert back to a time when we would had to selflessly play against the odds of our long-term survival for the sake of short-term happiness. The brutal truth is that few would willingly choose that end, if push comes to shove. Conversely, there are always be those that will.

“Some people view love and romance as a sacred bond between two individuals. Other people see love as a game, where the goal is to manipulate another individual and gain emotional power over a partner.”

In conclusion, it is often argued that women are driven to go where the food is on an evolutionary basis, unless conditioned behaviour or other events supersede the most basic survival mechanisms. This is particularly the case in societies where farming is not an option or prohibited by law. It is inferred that this is what makes us more likely to cheat, but only a small minority of women have it so bad that it justifies adultery, as they could technically decide to leave at anytime. Commitment issues are only a small part of why relationships fail. Uncertainty, misrepresentation, distrust or outright deceit are all the more manifest in presence of commitment and abandonment issues. On a separate note, a former client of mine always used to say “Women are like money’s. They won’t let go of the old branch until they’ve got a new one.” Despite his troubled past with women, he has a point. Ironically, his statement is true for a large percentage of men and women. Research suggests men and women are more prone to jumping from one relationship into another when the partner is far from what they’re looking for and a more suitable mate presents itself. However, it begs the question whether emotional attachment serves as an indicator of balance in the relationship. As an unhealthy degree of emotional attachment can develop in any relationship, it is often useful to take time and reflect…To continuously invest effort and resources into the relationship as a sign of commitment, if it is one-sided can hamper marital bliss and equality. However, some are not capable of reciprocity, even if the issue is addressed repeatedly. Particularly, where money is tight and emotions run too high for personal comfort. In that case, one has to either accept that they may not change or walk away.

Heightism – An Observers Tale

“Psychologist Catherine Cottrell at the University of Florida and her colleague Steven Neuberg at Arizona State University, argue that human prejudice evolved as a function of group living. Joining together in groups allowed humans to gain access to resources necessary for survival including food, water, and shelter. Groups also offered numerous advantages, such as making it easier to find a mate, care for children, and receive protection from others. However, group living also made us more wary of outsiders who could potentially harm the group by spreading disease, killing or hurting individuals, or stealing precious resources. To protect ourselves, we developed ways of identifying who belongs to our group and who doesn’t. Over time, this process of quickly evaluating others might have become so streamlined that it became unconscious.”

It takes less than a second for the average woman to decide whether she is attracted to another or not.
Self esteem and confidence can only get you so far, it cannot change how individuals that have limited themselves to responding in certain ways to certain people.
It’s their way of feeling socially and personally superior. It’s the source of their power. To make fun of that which is different. It is what mankind has always done. We form groups based on similarities. It’s an expression of free will and preference, only as long as it does not harm anyone physically, mentally or emotionally. Personally, I have always enjoyed being able to look a romantic partner in the eye. As a 5ft2in tall female, that can attract unwanted attention. Ironically, it can be perceived as an open invitation at times to taller men. A challenge to prove their superiority. More often than not, these failed attempts have been more socially painful for them than my partner at the time. However, I’m very much for equality. I paid my way through University, working full time, without relying on financial support. My swiss heritage somewhat gave me an edge to promote equal standards even if it cost me a job…or two…or three. Not backing down can be a disadvantage, especially when you’re facing an army of people that think that the social system is working just fine. Or that the jobcentre is trying to make everyone middle class. There will always be those that oppose your perspective. In a institutionally corrupt world, even more so. The meak shall inherit the earth… Doesn’t mean it’ll be an easy process. Everything happens for a reason. At times, its just hard to recognize it. Height discrimination is remnant of a strength versus intelligence battle. Socially permitted bullying does not make in any way justified. To be different means that you are yourself. There are people out there are will lobe that which others view as imperfections. And that’s the one thing you can count on. Until then, perseverance is the only tactic that can allow an individual to suffer discrimination and survive. If you have survived, then you have outlasted that which tormented you without becoming the tormentor.

From a historical perspective, Alexander, The Great, for instance, was in truth 5ft3in tall. Nelson was in actuality shorter than Napoleon himself. In essence, height does not determine personality. However, it is a predominant factor in combat as well as reproduction. It is often depict that larger animals utilize smaller species as prey. It’s an easy capture without much risk. Similarly, it can soothe the ego complex to gain a females affection by outbidding other prospective mates. In any case, the results is often the same. A struggle for power ensues, which will leave one of them licking their wounds. Although I’ve witnessed countless fights, in which the taller male opposes the shorter male in superior numbers, I have only  been witness to few tall men in a fair fight. As a professional, I aim to redirect the need for violent confrontation. As a woman, I am acutely aware that the propagator will most likely search for another target elsewhere. That’s where you come in… Don’t let yourself become a target.

“There’s just something appealing about tall men. Napoleon aside, tall men are more likely to win the popular contest in presidential votes and to be re-elected once in office (Stulp, 2013).  Their greater leadership potential may have something to do with the fact that tall men have higher self-esteem (whether or not deserved), are happier, and less likely to feel jealous toward other men.  When it comes to romantic partners, men and women tend to sort themselves out so that they form pairs of similar height. However, among married couples, women are more likely to be shorter than their husbands, if only by a few inches. In an intriguing 2013 study, Dutch psychologists Gert Stulp, Abraham Buunk, and Thomas Pollet followed up on some of their earlier work on male height to find out more about what leads women to prefer those lanky guys. They were also curious to learn how and why people are satisfied with their own height.”

There are obviously some social biases here, however, height does not equal survival capability, it is merely a factor. Intelligence is not defined by stature. In fact, intelligence is a more influential factor than height. Strength can only so get you so far.

“In a paper that will be published in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Eva Telzer of UCLA and three other researchers report that they’ve performed these amygdala studies–which had previously been done on adults–on children. And they found something interesting: the racial sensitivity of the amygdala doesn’t kick in until around age 14. What’s more: once it kicks in, it doesn’t kick in equally for everybody. The more racially diverse your peer group, the less strong the amygdala effect. At really high levels of diversity, the effect disappeared entirely. The authors of the study write that ”these findings suggest that neural biases to race are not innate and that race is a social construction, learned over time.”

The Dreaming Universe

Fred Wolfs Approach on Jungian and Freudian Thought

Dreams appear to break free of space and time limitations. Since the beginning of recorded history, humanity has examined the nature of dreams due to their influence upon waking life. For instance Wolfgang Pauli, who was working towards a theory that would overlap quantum physics and psychology, which was revealed to him by dream images. The holographic model of consciousness and certain concepts from quantum physics has also revealed a great deal of insight towards the mind-body problem. Nonetheless, although dreams had been investigated for thousands of years, Sigmund Freud was most likely the first western researcher that scientifically analysed dreams. Prior to his work, most medical professionals perceive dreams to be hallucinations, which were essentially useless. In contrast to this, Freuds model of dreams stated that they were expressions of the unconscious that had become repressed during early childhood,, after the child expressed wishes that remain unfulfilled. Wishes and desires were therefore strongly represented in dreams and represented yearnings that appeared during the four critical states of growth (oral, anal, phallic and genital). It was Freuds hope that he would be able to identify his clients repressed or buried wishes. Thus images were viewed at the disguised representations of the forbidden desires of the individual. Such a disguise was necessary so that the dreamer would not awaken, thus placing sleep as the primary state of consciousness that vital to human life. In Freuds model of the unconscious, two basic drives or instincts were recognized, which are aggression and eroticism. By 1923, he had replaced them with life and death drives. These drives were in turn attributable to the compulsion to repeat, in regards to habits and repeated patterns. In summary, the ego corresponds to the sense of self that is experienced. Just as Freud offered a structure of the psyche based on mechanism, Jung went further and indicated that the structure had to include meaningful relationships other than those that are time-ordered and cause-effect related. It was Jungs perspective that Freud placed too much emphasis on the erotic element of dreams. He also considered that wish fulfilment was far too small to underlie or be the cause of all dreams. Whereas Freud believed that sleep was the cause and dreams were the inevitable consequence, Jung believed that dreams were primary and seep was a sufficient alteration of consciousness to allow dreams to take place. Jungs model for instance places significant value on the process of individuation, which is a personal development wherein a connection between the centre of the psyche and the ego, the central part of consciousness, occurs. Dreams to him were also a map of possibility. Within the dream state, the observer is not localised to one region of the brain. The observer is distributed throughout the brain, picking up information from several memory locations simultaneously. The quantum wave in the brain is dependent upon all of the possible locations of the observer in order for memory recall in one location to be instantly correlated with other locations, giving rise to meaningful overlaps of that which is usually separated memories.

“Our minds operate mostly unconsciously.”

Freud originally discovered that human beings appear to perform tasks unconsciously. Dreams also appear to operate unconsciously. According to the work of Benjamin Libet, a neurophysiologist, the mind mostly operates unconsciously. In essence, this means, that decisions and responses to sensations are made from the outside world on an entirely unconscious basis. Human beings only become conscious of the phenomenal world approximately half a second later. Interestingly, we refer the late moment of conscious awareness back in time to the moment of sensation and out in space to the location of stimulus, even if it is outside our bodies. This is otherwise known as temporal referral and the latter is known as special referral. For instance, if the brain of a subject is stimulated in a particular area of the cortex, if the individual will feel sensations in the body. The mechanisms by which visual images are reconstructed are located within the brains, neural networks and retinas. In a similar manner, human beings reconstruct from sounds through the vibration of the eardrums and the approximate location of the sound source in space. Libets experiments showed that one might expect a certain amount of delay between the timing of conscious awareness of events, assuming that such awareness can be mapped in time and the time when a stimulus is applied. Libet referred to his theory of consciousness as time-on theory or subjective referral in time. His data showed that an individual, although able to react swiftly to stimuli within a hundred thousandth of a second (one hundred miliseconds) is not actually aware of what the individual is reacting to for several hundred milliseconds, up to a full half second. Yet, when interrogated in regards to the time of awareness, the individual responds as if he or she were aware at the time of the stimulus. His model portrayed that unconscious processes are far more important in our lives that previously imagined. Consequently, a large amount of experience of the phenomenal world is projected from the subjective inner worlds. To grasp Libets findings entirely though, it is necessary to carefully examine the form of the signal as it is detected on the somatosensory cortex. One discovers that it consists of four distinct time zones. The first time zone of the signal is a sharp electrically positive potential that arrives 15ms after the skin stimulus and persists for around 35ms. Libet believed that this pulse served as a time marker, a referral signal for apparent conscious awareness. This is quickly followed by a deep, wide negative potential that persists for around 100ms. Thirdly a low positive hump can be found lasting for around 150 to 200ms, followed fourthly by a shallow negative potential lasting for around 200 to 250ms. All together, the sum of intervals, composes the complex signal that lasts for around 500ms. Conclusively, Libet also showed that there is no conscious sensation of this until the full five hundred millisecond period of the total signal has passed. In other terms, the brain requires to have all of this signal passing into the somatosensory cortex before any awareness of the skin stimulation is consciously felt. If for any reason, certain parts of the signal are blocked, the individual will not be aware of the skin stimulus. In fact, Libet has shown that the S1 response is not even necessary for awareness. When the cortical surface is stimulated, it was found that individuals became aware even though no S1 response was present, thus no one is aware of any stimuli until 500ms have passed.

Purpose of REM

During the day, human beings take in an exponential amount of data. Numerous amount of the input to the brain are of the type described by the neural networks, partial memories that evoke full memories. A certain amount of these inputs, however, eventually cause the interneural connections, via the synapses, to overload. When REM sleep is entered, the dreams are the products of neurons feeding back on themselves without stimuli coming in through the senses. As such, they are negative feedback loops, weakening the strengths of some of the connections with other neurons, similar to the negative weight biasing in the computer networks used by Hopfield et al. Thus, the dreams can turn into erasure modes, helping the individual to become refreshed by making desired or important for survival memories equally accessible and ridding us of undesirable, bizarre memories, those that do not play any role in survival. A major objection is found in experimental studies of individual that are deprived of REM sleep for numerous nights, usually up to one week, one would expect according to theoretical evidence that these individual would exhibit increased periods of fantasy and imagination, possibly even hallucinations. This is because the ‘unlearning’ throughout the night has not taken place and the unwanted memories would not be erased. Although there is some evidence for this, however, the general opinion of researchers is that when human beings or animals are deprived of REM sleep, their behaviour is not affected in any obvious or predictable manner. Waking a dreamer at the onset of REM tends to after several nights produce a rebound effect. It becomes more and more difficult to accomplish. By the end of a weeks deprivation of sleep, the individual enters REM states around fifty times night, suggesting that in these cases the individual may be ‘snatching’ periods of REM during the waking hours. Drug-inducted suppression of sleep is not much better since the medication is known to produce countless side-effects that could mask the result.
It should be noted that certain animals, although they possess larger brains, do not experience REM sleep. Hence, the relatively larger brains of these animals is connected to their lack of REM sleep, as they would require a larger neural network to absorb unwanted associations. This would tend to minimize overlaps in the networks of these animals.

Dreamtime

‘Aborigines believed in two forms of time. Two parallel streams of activity. One is the daily objective reality to which you and I are confined. The other is an infinite spiritual cycle called the dreamtime, more real that reality itself. Whatever happens in the dreamtime establishes the values, symbols and laws of the Aboriginal society. Some people of unusual spiritual powers have contact with the dreamtime.’ In modern times, the aboriginal outlook is still shaped by the dreaming, as it may. Yet, the relationship between dreaming and life remains a problem. Firstly, dreaming must be considered a phenomenon. It is that which is. According to the Puntupi tribes of central Australia, it is a framework for human behaviour. It is a projection into a symbolic space of social processes and it must be related to individuals lives. For the Pintupi, it must also be related to something that transcends everyday life. Dreaming can also be presumed to transcend the space-time of the immediate. The landscape is viewed as tracks of the totemic animal spirits that once walked the earth and by becoming stone themselves, they became the earth. Just as everyday animals leave their tracks ob the ground, these totemic beings leave theirs. In addition, this can be related to the concept of solipsism. In the book, The Secret of Dreaming, Jim Poulter shares a story, which is in actuality a dreamtime recounting of evolution, yet this time evolution has a purpose that transcends mere survival, for each individual dreams of something beyond itself. Poulter believed that this capacity to see beyond oneself, to see into the future, to imagine possibilities that do not seem to exist in the immediate environment, is a unique facette of consciousness. The Spirit constructs existence through this ability in order to go beyond what is to what could be. In other terms, to dream. The reason behind this for Poulter lies in responsibility. The crucial aboriginal concept is the belief that the Big Dream continues, as humanity is awakening to a greater sense of care and responsibility for the future. All humans et to be are waiting in the dreamtime for their births. The astral dimension, as it is also called. Gradually, as evolution proceeds, the responsibility will become clearer that all mankind is a part of a bigger dream of a larger spirit and that the care-taking of ones fellow man should become a necessitated priority. The development of the fetus is a microcosm of the development of the universe itself. It is stated that the fetus goes through every state of life, beginning with the single-celled animal, passing through the final state, complete with gills, all the way up th the present human form. The dreamtime therefore also represents a step towards the meaning of matter. It is to communicate all possibilities to all existences in order for the collective consciousness to attain a higher degree of self-awareness and realisation.

Telepathy

Certain definitions of consciousness are restricted to waking perception processing. Hobson perceived that consciousness is a kind of awareness that may not be only awareness of the outside world but also its representation in the brain. If so, the dream consciousness is definitely an altered state of consciousness. With quantum physics as a metaphorical basis, an insight into the timeless nature of dreams can be gained. Nearly entirely unconscious, the processes of the ID include mental forms that have never been observed as well as memories that have been repressed. These memories unlike the unobserved mental forms, influence the mental and physical life of the individual. It should be noted that during REM periods, the EEG pattern is similar to the waking state pattern. Evidence towards psychic phenomena often involves information that is normally received or experienced in one state of consciousness being made available when the recipient was in another. For instance, the dreamer would become aware of events occurring in waking life. Montague Ullman and others regarded telepathic dreams and the role of dreams in the interconnectedness of the species. Telepathic dreams include dreams of prophecy, links between a dream and an individual in waking life, dreams that connect one dreamer with another, and dreams in which an awake individual attempts to send images to a dreamer. Ullman pointed out that the precognitive dreams are distinguished from telepathic dreams and that even though both are paranormal, telepathy normally refers only to paranormal contact between ones mind and other minds present or past but not future. He also explained that most paranormal dreams are precognitive rather than telepathic. Consistent with the possibility for quantum waves to travel forward, backward and sideways in time. Ordinary or non-telepathic dreams differ from telepathic dreams in only one way. The data that is correlated during the dream. Ordinary dreams usually correlate the days remembered experience with past associations or future expectations contained as memories. They can also introduce anti-correlations as a mechanism to wipe associations or memories that do not serve the survival or the individual or the species. Telepathic dreams are quite different in that they tend to correlate feelings and emotions with space-time events. Closely connected to telepathic dreams is the related issue as theorized by Montague Ullman that dreams serve to help the human species survive with survival of the individual as a secondary but necessary issue.

Relationship Between Dreams And The Physical Body

Implicit in the holographic model is the notion that we sense as out there in the physical world is not as it seems at all. It is reminiscent of the Buddhist idea of impermanence. Nothing within the phenomenal world appears to be permanent or fixed. All remains to be in a state of flux. Solid objects are not really solid at all, they only appear to be such to the human senses. Thus, everything that is sensed is only a passing instance, a glimpse of reality. Virtual images are created as illusions of objects. The light that would be seen, when the virtual image that appears is viewed, which is coming from the image, when it in actuality it is not. Von Franz stated that ‘Whenever the human mind confronts an unknown, it invents symbolic models, drawing on preconscious process of projection. In the history of mankind, we therefore find numerous symbolic representation of the unus mundus. This one world as a continuum consisting of images, as a geometrical continuum or as a numerical structured system. With Einsteins general theory of relativity, mass becomes part of space-time and is unified with energy through the famous equation E=MC2. The idea is to see all of physics as a geometrical continuum, paralleling Jung’s one world concept. So far, science has attempted to look at all processes in the universe in a rational manner has failed to grasp how the material universe could be affected by the processes that resist measurement based on space, time and mass. Yet, it is clearly visible that human behaviour is often determined by the images carried by the individual consciousness. Thus, a body’s symptoms are not to be dealt with purely mechanically similar to pathologies. Instead, symptoms are potentially meaningful and purposeful conditions signalling a phase of life or in order to bring one closer to the centre of existence. Mindell concluded from his patients illness that the condition could be an expression of emotion, which is how the dreambody was developed. It is both a dream and a body. Mindell also states that he not once found a case, in which the individuals dreams did not reflect the body’s symptoms. The dreambody can be related to the physical body in much the same way that the quantum wave function that gives the probability of a particle’s state can be related to the particle’s physical state.

Non-Ordinary Reality

If the imaginal realm is ontologically real, which means that is has objective existential quality as Henry Corbin suggests, then the question is how come only few individuals of the human race have encountered this reality? For Corbin, the imaginal realm was more irrefutable and coherent than the world experienced during the waking state. Beholders of the imaginal realm had reported to him that they were perfectly aware of having journeyed elsewhere. These individuals were not schizophrenic or mentally ill. The world that they had experienced was not fantasy. It was a world with form and dimension and even other life-forms. One may wish to consider the words of Carl Sagan, who believed that there was a connection between dreams and evolution. In shamanistic terms, one may refer to these phenomena as evidence towards a universal mind. The self-reflective mind that knows that it knows. The universal mind knows everything, anything and perhaps surprisingly it knows nothing. Its nothingness is described by Buddhist philosophers and practitioners as the state of pure awareness, consciousness without an object of consciousness. In it, moments, events, fly by as ephemeral flashes like fireflies, but nothing is adhered tom nothing is given any value. In essence, everything is seen as a dream. If the universal mind is a composite of our minds, then how is that composite mind integrated? If the process is akin to a superposition of quantum states of awareness, then the results of that superposition will be another state that does not share in the qualities of the separated states. Only if the minds are decoupled, only if there is something that keeps the patterns in the superposition of the minds from emerging, will there be anything like an objective quality emerging in any single mind at all. Yet, if one were to carry this concept further, given the reality of the universal mind, then the mind separations that produce the results of objectivity are an illusion and as such, the reality of the universal mind will from time to time appear within the individual minds. However, it should be noted that the ability to predict and control nature violates the basic paradigm of science, which is not entirely accurate. Humanity has the capacity to predict and manipulate nature, yet it has its consequences, as noted by the recent polar vortex, which is currently passing through Russia. Nonetheless, Niels Bohr was of the opinion that the complementarity, which existed between the wave and the particle aspects of nature were indications of a much deeper complimentarity in which irreconcilable pairs of opposites need not be contradictory. As he once stated, “the opposite of a small truth may be a lie, but the opposite of a great truth is also a great truth.” In essence, the universal mind would strive towards overall self-realisation of its true nature. The non-ordinary reality merely offers symbolic truth in order to decipher the larger picture and recognize the interconnected nature of the universe.

Sense of Self

Bruce S. Dewitt once stated “The many world interpretation of quantum mechanics reveals a universe that is constantly splitting into a stupendous number of branches, all resulting from the measurement like interactions between its myriad of components. Moreover, every quantum transition, taking place on every star, every galaxy, in every remote corner of the universe is splitting our local world into myriads of copies of itself.” Moreover, there is evidence of brain cellular mitosis occurring, but not in neural cells. Certain studies indicate that the glial cells perform metabolic function, also providing nourishment for neural cells. It should be noted that Albert Einsteins brain autopsy after the time of his death showed a larger than average amount of glial cells associated with his visual cortex. This led countless of individuals to suspect their association with intellect and the enhanced ability to visualise abstract concepts. Nowadays, it has been discovered that dementia severs the connection between the glial cells and neurons, resulting it neuronal death. Studies performed by Karl Lashley between 1920 and 1950 indicated that memory was based on the formation of engrams, which are not localised in specific places but distributed holographically, as it may, throughout the brain. Furthermore, the sense of self is connected to self-awareness through memory and body awareness. With diminished body awareness and volitional control, the self appears to expand, losing its bearings in time and space. In conclusion, there are more than likely thousands of pieces of information and/or images within the glial cell memory. These images are states of quantum physical observables and must follow the rules of quantum superposition. Consequently, any composition of a superposition of states will be complimentary to all other levels. Thus, the secondary images are complimentary to all the primary and tertiary images. The tertiary images are complimentary to all primary and secondary images and so forth. Although a single automaton cannot simultaneously hold multiple images consisting of complimentary observations of another system, it can hold multiple images simultaneously, consisting of complimentary observation of images built up self-reflectively. In other terms, if the images contain the observer as well as the observed, the automaton can recall them. Images of objective, external observations cannot be held simultaneously as the simultaneous knowledge of objective complimentary observables is in violation of the uncertainty principle. Thus to perform the same act with objective images is scientifically impossible, according to quantum physics. In conclusion, an object in a state of self-reflection can hold both truth and its opposite at the same time without the creation of a paradox, while the attempt to determine the same thing results in doubt or uncertainty. It should be noted that any single image will correspond to a specific quantum physical state, while the superposition of images would also correspond to the complimentary physical state of an emotion, thought form, archetype or superarchetype. The automaton could measure and thereby obtain various combinations of images in groups of 1-4 or more of these images, It could obtain a single image or all of the images together, thus constructing the complete superarchetype. Conclusively, the awareness of self is intrinsically linked with the decrease of automatic and mechanical behaviour, resulting in greater choices and becoming more aware of ones own behaviour, dreams, decisions, universe and subsequently of existences in other worlds.

One Single Being

In essence, reality is made of probabilities that can be coherent in order for the possibility to form into solid matter. The dream state is a location, in which the quantum reality becomes especially transparent and the mixture of mind and matter is revealed in a variety of ways. Nevertheless, if we all possess such archetypal images constituting the unconscious minds, these images would be on a deeper level than personal experiences. Conclusively, these archetypes would arise from a more fundamental level of reality. In this sense, the dream becomes more fundamental than the objective reality. Fred Alan Wolf suggests that “When we dream, we return to that reality in order to gain information about how to survive in this reality, yet survival may not be as it seems from a single perspective.” The materialist philosopher believes that consciousness arises from matter. If consciousness exists in matter, then matter is consciousness. Furthermore, everything arises in relation to everything else, reality appears not only interconnected, but also interdependent. Conversely, we as human beings often become afraid when others inform us of that which is real and that which is not. We sense an inner conflict with that which we are told. We feel fear, as we know that the viewpoint of a political system is not consistent with our own standpoint. Communism, capitalism and war is not the answer to the world, it is a tendency towards self-hatred and self-destruction. Whatever we imagine often begins to appear, as if it was called into existence, particularly fearful images, which is reminiscent of a self-fulfilling prophecy created by ones own mind. We create these images as realities because the universe is ambivalent and paradoxical. It is of no matter what is produced, as at the most fundamental level of existence, it is capable of forming reality into whatever images are produced. A famous philosopher once enquired “If we light a candle and walked out of the room, does it still burn?” By this he was trying to highlight that it takes a mind to confirm something’s existence. Existence depends on mind because all of existence occurs within mind. We can know of the existence of our universe only because we have a mind and we can manipulate creation only because we have a mind. Mind is the true cause behind effect and therefore all things are of mental nature. Life is interconnected and is truly capable of being one giant life form that is continually expanding, adapting, and evolving in complexity. The binding force of all life therefore becomes consciousness.

Should Psychology And Physics Be Combined?

There is a breach between the fields of physics and psychology. Indeed, between physics and psychology there is a whole abyss. That is understandable if we take into account the different histories and different goals of each of these disciplines. Yet, it does not have to continue to be so in the future, especially if we take into account the fact that both disciplines aim at expanding our knowledge, if we take into account the fact that in the world around us everything is connected to everything by a communicating vessel. All things seem to be connected either by causal links or, as suggested by a physicist Wolfgang Pauli and psychologist Carl Jung, by some “acausal connecting principle.”
In essence the combination of psychology and physics, otherwise known as psychophysics quantitatively investigates the relationship between physical stimuli and the sensations and perceptions they affect. Psychophysics has been described as “the scientific study of the relation between stimulus and sensation” or, more completely, as “the analysis of perceptual processes by studying the effect on a subject’s experience or behaviour of systematically
varying the properties of a stimulus along one or more physical dimensions.” It was founded in the laboratory of German Gustav Fechner, psychophysics is one of the parents of modern experimental psychology. It demonstrated that mathematical analysis could be applied to subjective reports, and that principled relationships could be discovered between physical quantities and subjective impressions.
Let us examine a famous example, Weber’s Law, named after Ernst Weber, a colleague of Fechner’s. This formula describes how changes in the subjective perception of stimulus intensity (e.g. how heavy a weight feels) are related to the actual change in stimulus magnitude (how much something actually weighs). You can look up the mathematics of this if you’re interested, but a plain-language interpretation is that to increase the perceived intensity of a stimulus you need to increase its physical magnitude by a constant proportion, not a constant absolute amount. Imagine that you can make an empty bag feel heavier by putting in a book, yet a single book won’t make a bag full of bricks feel heavier, even though in both cases you are adding the same amount of weight. Weber’s Law gives you a mathematical way to calculate how much you would need to increase or decrease the physical weight to produce a subjective impression of a change in heaviness. It also allows you to compare sensitivity between the senses, showing, for example that we are more sensitive to brightness than loudness, because the proportional change needed to create a noticeable difference for lights is smaller than that needed for sounds. As well as discovering many of the few laws that exist in psychology, psychophysics has generated methods and theories which are applied across all of experimental psychology, not just in the investigation of sensation and perception. In applying scientific measurement to subjective experience, the early psychophysicists were demonstrating a faith in empiricism, but they were also throwing themselves upon a dilemma – the attempt to relate the world of the measurable and objective to the subjective inner world of sensation. That dilemma is still just as relevant and profound today in all areas of psychology, and psychophysics is still vital as a toolkit for addressing it.
Sensory perception and interart research seems to occur these days in the in-between spaces of art history, literature, media studies, anthropology, neurological sciences, and numerous more disciplines that contribute to the exploration of a new aesthetics. This new aesthetics very much includes aesthesis or the study of physiologically and psychologically infused perceptive abilities in the human. Yet, what happened to the term “psychophysics” in this arena? A long-out-of-print volume, Sensory Communication by Walter Rosenblith, based on a 1959 symposium, has recently been reissued by MIT Press. It reminds us of pioneers like Fechner, criticized therein, in the early days of experiential aesthetics and of the nascent fascination with the human-computer interface and AI around the middle of the 20th century. S.S. Stevens poignantly extracts and highlights the ambiguities inherent to research in psychophysics, playing into the qualitative-quantitative divide co-existent with C.P. Snow’s “two cultures”. “It must be confessed at the outset that psychophysics has often failed to do its part of the job [it tells what the organism can do and it asks those who are inspired by such mysteries to advance our understanding of how such wonders are performed] with distinction. Its task is not easy. For one thing, long-standing prejudices, derived in great measure from a chronic dualistic metaphysics, have triggered a variety of stubborn objections whenever it has been proposed that sensation may be amenable to orderly and quantitative investigation. You cannot, the objectors, complain, measure the inner, private, subjective strength of a sensation. Perhaps not, in the sense the objectors have in mind, but in a different and very useful sense the strength of a sensation can, as we shall see, be fruitfully quantified. We must forgo arguments about the private life of the mind and ask sensible objective questions about the input-output relations of sensory transducers as these relations are disclosed in the behavior of experimental organisms, whether men or animals.”
Furthermore, the theory of psychophysical parallelism states that mental and physical experiences occur simultaneously and are not necessarily bound by any causal interaction. The theory was established in the early 19th century by a German philosopher Gustav Theodor Fechner, also famous for the Weber-Fechner law. While the psychophysical parallelism definition might seem a bit unclear, the theory is very interesting and is one of few philosophical theories which have been accepted by numerous scientists. To better understand Fechner’s approach to mind-body problem a little historical background would be helpful. In the middle of the 19th century, with a more and more rapid progression of scientific thought, many philosophers became interested in explaining the nature of mind and body interaction. This lead to a famous materialism dispute as the opponents of metaphysical philosophy gained many supporters (Vogt, Büchner, Moleschott). Materialistic approach to mind-body dichotomy was at that time seen as very radical, and some of its points still cause much controversy in the 21st century. One of Carl Vogts more memorable quotes around the time was most likely his statement that “Thoughts issue from the brain just as gall is produced by the liver or urine by the kidneys.” Consequently, are our thoughts just like other bodily fluids which are generated in a similar way as numbers in computer programmes? Are we just very sophisticated machines? Gustav Fechner claimed to be able to give the solution to materialism debate. His theory, known as psychophysical parallelism, was first mentioned in 1820s but it was not until 1860 that his approach became widely known, thanks to his mature work Elements of Psychophysics. There are many misconceptions about the meaning of psychophysical parallelism. Countless individuals seem to confuse it with occasionalism, pre-established harmony and Cartesian doctrine of two non-interacting substances. You may read on other websites that psychophysical parallelism is a theory established by Leibniz. It is true that psychophysical parallelism is partially congruent with Leibniz’s theory of non-causal conformity of the soul and the organic body. However, a very important difference is that Fechner rejected any theological grounds for his theory and therefore, even though psychophysical parallelism is a dualistic conception, by no means should it be confused with statements made either by Descartes or Leibniz. Fechner’s theory states that while mental and physical states are not causally dependent they are functionally dependent. What does it mean? It means that to every mental event there is a corresponding brain event. It does not claim causal interaction, it does not deny it. It refrains from explaining the nature of mind and body. It is a very open paradigm. By many it is treated as a good and neutral foundation for more detailed explanations of the nature of mind and body problem albeit the theory itself does not answer many questions.
In other terms, psychophysics attempts to understand the relationship between a physical stimulus and the psychological impression it creates or how the physical world influences the mind. The connection between perception and psychophysics is that perception is one of the constructs examined in the psychological part of the equation. Psychophysics uses quantitative measurements to analyze the relationship between the sensations and perceptions caused by stimuli. The relationship between perception and psychophysics is an important one in that what a person perceives to be so is not always indicative of the stimulus. Stimuli possess different properties which affect whether a person is aware of them or not and dictate their identification. The degree of difference between stimuli will affect whether they are distinguishable or not and to what magnitude a stimulus needs to reach before judgment of similarity and difference can be made.
There are three methods used to measure perception in psychophysics. They are magnitude estimation, matching and detection or discrimination. In magnitude estimation, the subject is required to rate a stimulus on how bright or loud it is on a scale. Matching requires the subject to find the stimuli which are similar in look, sound or pitch. In detection, the subject is asked to discriminate between small differences in intensity or whether a light was flashed or a sound played. Two important terms used in perception and psychophysics are the “absolute threshold” and “difference threshold.” Absolute threshold refers to the smallest detectable amount of stimulus energy, and the difference threshold, or just noticeable difference, refers to the smallest detectable difference between two stimuli.
One of the most important precepts in perception and psychophysics is Weber’s Law which states that the difference threshold between two stimuli is proportional to the baseline or starting intensity. That is, if a small increase in intensity is applied to a small parameter, then that increase can be detected. However, if that same small increase is applied to a larger parameter, it will no longer be detectable.
More and more studies, while not disproving altogether Woody Allen’s theory that the brain is the second most important organ, continue to amass evidence to the contrary. In a paradoxical twist, the field of Psycho-Physics may yet reveal that what we think about disorders in the brain may actually have a greater impact on the brain than their treatment, even the disorders themselves. In fact, what we now perceive as abnormal may soon be the new normal. Recent technologies, along with new diagnostic procedures, are so sophisticated that if there is even the possibility of a disorder, or the need or desire for one, it can be detected. This has raised new questions about the nature of consciousness and the impact of thought on the treatment of mental disease. Indeed, on the proposed invention of it.
This re-visioning of how we think casts a not inconsiderable shadow over the mental health profession regarding a possible bias against the individual psychic disposition. Statistics show that abnormalities in the brain have increased significantly with modern treatment, and this has left some experts to wonder if part of the problem might not be obscured in a broad and all-inclusive classification system. Owing to vague definitions and bloated latitudes, they charge, the individual is viewed as a “mere aggregate of eccentricities.” According to self-reports, the average treatment of twelve sessions per mental health consumer indicated substantial progress. Studies by competitors of those undergoing treatment for extended periods, however, showed actual recovery rates similar to those with no treatment at all. Some conditions even deteriorated with more treatment, prompting many to call for a revaluation of criteria. Insiders reveal that cases are presumed cured only upon depletion of the consumer’s bank account: when the aforesaid is enabled to independently obtain the necessities of existence: twice the mortgage affordable under the most ideal economic conditions, insurance-poverty, and self-medication when feeling overwhelmed. Independent follow-up studies by law firms representing creditors and maxed-out family members, however, found that ninety per cent of consumers returned for more treatment within two years. The discovery that they had minds, yet not knowing what to do with them, sent them back to work in such off-balanced whirlwinds of nervous energy that resuming therapy was a priority even after having gone destitute paying for it in the first place. Recidivism rates compared with those of penitentiary internment. This has led some to suggest a possible “addiction to therapy.”
Crime rates, likewise, didn’t vary significantly between the two groups with one notable exception. Those who underwent treatment before incarceration, once out of a facility, tended to commit more heinous crimes than those whose social stations hadn’t permitted therapy. Once in the system, those under such loose parameters as bible-studies, hand-basket weaving as a means of spiritual contact with the underworld were slightly less violent upon release than those undergoing formal therapy. Psycho-Physics has recently emerged as one of a handful of new approaches which have begun to question the uncritical piling up of statistical data in support of the health industry’s interests along with Eye Rotation Therapy and Tapping. Psycho-Physics is discarding the conventional mantle of scientific pretense for more holistic models which address the individual through pledged commitments to wishful thinking and the power of suggestion.
According to Dr. Aylien Creacher of the Institute for Modern Solipsism stated that “Psycho-Physics proper began with my historical studies of individuality. “Psycho” meaning of course, “crazy”, was combined with “physics”. Greek for “out there”, which also included projected ideas of the body to describe a process of self-examination applied by the individual through the use of concepts designed to free the true personality from the Procrustean bed of modern theory. At the core of Psycho-Physics is the concept of projection. Certain feelings and inner experiences confirm it as psychologically meaningful; however, it cannot be scientifically proven to actually exist. The subjective nature of it makes it relative to the individual in all cases. “Since it is recalcitrant to objective appraisal, it’s seldom employed as a conscious tool for assessment. This ensures that its negative effects work unconsciously. The evaluation of one subjective attitude by another automatically assumes the nature of a value judgment. To regard such projections as belonging only to the consumer and not the practitioner, for example, leads to quite arbitrary conclusions and is therefore scientifically untenable, not to say intellectually unethical. The definition of projection presupposes its functioning in all minds, regardless of personal fantasy. In point of fact, the practioner’s projections actually self-replicate based on the very design of the process itself. The principle of negative sums predicts that the practitioner’s projections will exceed those of others involved.” In conclusion, all the examples of scientific research above have clearly shown that psycho-physics, although it has become distributed and separated amongst numerous sectors and titles, continues to result in discoveries that allow for a greater insight into the nature of mind and matter. One may only dream of that which could be possible, if mankind were to concentrate their focus towards the actual merging and development of the two as a scientific discipline.

Shamanic Physics

The Observer Effect

According to the first hypotheses of the relationship between modern physics and shamanic practices, Fred Alan Wolf concluded that all shamans perceive the universe as being made from vibrations. Within physics, vibrations are repetitive patterns that can be observed in the simplest physical systems. That being said, from the movement of sound through the air to the invisible vibrations of light waves speeding through the universe are all evidence of vibrational motion. Consequently, Wolf discovered that there were even more subtle vibrations, which were contained in the probability waves of subatomic and atomic matter. These waves possess a vibrational pattern, yet they also play a key role in determining how probable physical events are to take place. Whenever in time or wherever in space an event manifests are governed by the strength and amplitude of these waves. Quantum waves are invisible. They are constructs of human thought necessary for the modern world to enable an understanding of atomic and subatomic matter. For any event to manifest, these waves coming from the future and the present or from the past and the present must interfere with each other in the present. The Anglo-Saxon Shamans themselves viewed the universe as a web consisting of vibrating strings. However, when contemplating the observer effect, which in essence describes that the act of observation alters the phenomena of being observed, one should be aware that the quantum system itself would not be able to operate in the same manner, if it was to be observed as a whole. It is known that quantum waves exist through space and even beyond time. In addition, they are possess the capacity affect matter. Yet, most individuals neglect that there would have to be an intelligence behind the observed for it to alter its behaviour. In the Bohr interpretation of quantum physics, these waves would vanish the instant any observation of matter occurred. In fact, the observation was imagined as the sudden collapse of the wave producing a particle of matter. According to Paulis exclusion principle, electrons have the ability to exclude each other from entering each others territory. Atomic energy structures are possible only due to electric exclusion. According to Pauli, photons, particles of light, possess the ability to include each other. They are able to enter each others territory and in fact have a strong tendency to do so, thus the phenomena is termed photon inclusion, which resulted in the development of laser technology that would not be able to operate outside of this fact. Henceforth, during an altered state of consciousness, the observer of a quantum system disturbs the system by the mere act of observing it.

Difference Between Resonance and Vibration

According to the teachings of the Quabala, the universe was constructed from vibrational sound patterns of three Hebrew letters, which are “aleph”, “mem” and “sheen” in an interplay of spirit, matter and consciousness. That which is known as consciousness is consistent of waves of information that move from spirit into matter and then back into spirit. This flow of waves took place outside of time. In the sense that the whole action of that movement was instantaneous. According to quantum physics, any conscious experience also results from a double movement of a wave action. This wave action also occurs beyond space and time. It is a wave of possibilities, that is known as quantum wave function. It moves from the present to the relevant time and then returns to the present moment. As shamans chant sacred songs and chants in order to invoke spirits of all kinds, the connection between sacred chants and the language used by, for instance, Qabalists. Often, a resonant transfer of vibrational energy from one individual to another is symbolized during rituals and practices. In countless traditions, healing is also viewed as a transfer of vibrational energy within the body. When the body falls ill, parts of it are out of harmony with the rest of it. All organs and cells vibrate. Hence, the practice of radionics has become more widespread within Western Medicine. It is often believed that when an organ is no longer receiving vibrational energy from the rest of the body, it is vibrating at another or the wrong frequency, thus it is out of harmony with that which nurtures it. Therefore, healing could simply consist of reinvoking those sacred sounds within the body, which is very similar to the practice of Atharveda within Hinduism. For instance, in the shamanic tradition, the chanting of the world “wolf” would invoke the presence of the wolf itself. Thus if one sang the name of a wolf in a sacred manner, a wolf would appear. Shamans do not simply view things interacting with things producing a cause and effect relationship, yet they view it as a web of interconnectedness, which is very close to the kind of interconnectedness that can be observed in old fashioned and present day quantum models. In physics, this is referred to as non-locality, which describes actions taking place in one location can instantly affect actions in an entirely different location. The process of energy resonating within the hunter that may attract animals of prey, such as a wolf, deer or even edible type of bear. In conclusion, resonance vibrations would differ from individual to individual. One may even hypothesize that it could be unique to the individual. However, vibrational modes of the body can be altered by stress and illness. Thus, when the resonance of the body is adjusted to attain a homeostatic state, the body would attune to the sound and harmonize.

Purpose of Shamanic Ritual/Initiation

Shamans will utilize any device to alter a patients belief in regards to reality. Whilst doing so, the shaman can also choose that which is physically meaningful and see all events as being universally interconnected. There are two important events in the consciousness strand of the web between a shaman and the individual that is in need of shamanic healing energies. Both events are observed in a testing ceremony. The first event is when the shaman convinces himself or herself that he or she possess a genuine shamanic power. Shamans are ordinary human beings themselves, therefore they must test themselves every single time they conduct a healing ceremony. The second event occurs when the individual that is expecting to be healed in convinced that the shaman has the power to do so. In conclusion, there are two event points, as it may, of consciousness that are required in order for the shaman to be true. Both individuals, client and shaman, require the belief that this special kind of power is being held by the shaman. Therefore, in the world of the shaman and his patient, a particular initial event, which acts in the manner of convincing both parties, and a particular final event, which convinced the patient that the shaman is in possession of healing powers, must be meaningful for both partners in this dance of healing. All of Wolfs hypotheses point toward the observer effect. The patient is required to be prepared. According to quantum rules, the rules that govern the behaviour of matter, an observer must prepare the state of the system that he or she hopes to observe. It is merely logical that the patient, the individual necessitating the healing, would be required to prepare his or her own mind and body in a manner significant to the ritual. According to the Jungian model of psychology, there are four separate psychological functions. Thought and feeling represent two complimentary functions, as do intuition and sensations. Wolf conceived a model of the Jungian functions based on quantum physics. Accordingly, a thought is complimentary to a feeling in the same manner that the position and the momentum of a particle causes the position of it to become indeterminant and vice versa. In a similar manner, it is not possible to simultaneously hold a thought and feeling about something. One causes the other to become indeterminant. Jung noted that during personality development that one function can often mature at the expense of another. Henceforth, during rituals such as firewalking or swallowing lighted butter lamps, shamans will literally perform almost any action in order to convince the client to change their belief structure. Although shamanic practitioners are very sincere, they can use gullibility or psychedelic beverages, such as ayahuasca, and any form of trick to alter their clients own consciousness in order for them to accept the existence of a power, an archetype from the imaginal realm, which is more profound that the clients own mind.

Shamanism & Geomancy

Geomancy is a traditional way of divination based on intuitive contact with the subtle energies of the Earth. It belongs to a large family of divinatory methods founded on that which modern mathematicians refer to as binary or base 2 numbers. The most well known of this family is most likely the I Ching, also referred to as the book of changes. The principle underlying these methods are universal, as certain random or quasi random events can be made to produce one of two definite results. To the geomancer, the entire world was a pattern of meanings that could be caught by the perceptive eye and interpreted by the attentive mind. Certain locations upon planet earth have been even assigned essences and personalities. Along my travels, however, I have encountered one which is still significantly potent. Due to the recent electromagnetic changes of the earth, perhaps even more so. It is the Isle of Thanet. Otherwise known as the isle of death, the hiding place of the white witches and the dumping ground of great Britain for centuries. Yet, it’s essence is clearly felt. Winston Churchill remarked upon the eerie nature of the former island. It should be noted that these places of power have different types of energy associated with ancient sites. These are not only ley lines, there is also another form of spiritual geography. It is possible to measure additional geophysical properties in these other sites. For instance, prehistoric stone structures in Cornwall showed radiation anomalies, which could either be reminiscent of an ancient nuclear war that has been evidenced around other prehistoric structures on the globe.
There are two forces acting within us. The quantum force of the electron exclusion tends to keep things separated. The quantum force of photon inclusion tends to bring things together. Between these two forces of exclusion, which enables atoms to form all of the molecular to communicate with each other and vibrate synthetically, human life exists. It could therefore be argued that as all is composed of energy, it is probable that locations, certain time frames and even individuals possess unique energies, which in turn define, yet also reveal, the nature of the before mentioned object or subject in question. Conclusively, shamanic physics is the entire nature of geomancy. Humankind has been sensitive to the subtle energies of locations for centuries, it is only in the last hundred years that mankind has slowly faded out that very ability through the lack of utilizing it. In modern times, steel frame buildings uilt on an economic bias have come to replace the ancient geomantic bias. Perhaps this loss of ability has occurred due to the desire to coomunicate with one another over vast distances and hold energy as well as power at ones fingertips. The electromagnetic spectrum has extended into mankinds sensorium, as it may. It provides information, heat, and illuminates dark spaces. The lack of usage of geomancy has caused the ability to utilize it to degenerate, as the imaginal realm vanishes into fantasy.

Five Senses

The first five senses of humanity are normal ones. Then one has to consider the imaginal senses. The sense of self-healing, the sense of self-destruction, the sense of penetration, to be able to penetrate other levels, other worlds and other dimensions, the sense of perception, to be able to see and comprehend that which one perceives in those other worlds. And the sense of revelation, to be able to use that which one has perceived as it has been revealed. These are the ten senses that the Chumash work by. There appears to be principles of life based on the mind that have been lost throughout history. These are principles of healing that appear to be universal in essence. It should be noted that mechanical action occurs when life becomes unconscious. As if it becomes dead in its thinking by becoming mechanical in operation. Yet, the mind creates mechanical action by creating least action paths, as Wolf describes it. These paths became the unconscious mind. The body-mind which attends the survival of the individual. The consciousness, the spirit itself, is a very significant part of healing, which in modern medicine is often neglected. Within Buddhism, similarly to shamanism, all illness arises from three root poisons. Attachment, Aversion and Ignorance. The metaphorical gesture of removing the illness, by sucking on the head for instance and then spitting it out, for instance, utilize visualization and healing that has travelled to the corners of Western civilisations by mere efficiency without being directly or indirectly related to shamanism. The imaginal realm has a rather important, yet more often than not overlooked, role within modern society. Out of these five imaginal senses, certain ones are generally trained better. For instance, black shamans are often advised to take caution, when it comes down to cursing individuals, as their ability to heal diminishes and eventually vanishes. The sense of self-destruction, which is often known as self-sabotaging, can be overcome through the sense of self-healing and a sense of revelation. This is rather reminiscent of Jungs and Freuds wish for death and wish for life, which could easily be interpreted as that imaginal sense as well as desire for healing as well as destruction. Perhaps the desire for death represents the yearning to return to a state of complete or true enlightenment. The desire to return to a non-physical state of being. For instance, through the sense of self-healing, the shaman can also attain the knowledge of how to heal and help others, the shaman could for instance produce a healing vibration in the patients body. When the patient tunes into the vibration, they are healed. Wolf suggested that this act of tuning would most likely be related to the vibrational frequency of a quantum wave of probability. The frequencies of these waves are related to the energies of the particles, which tend to manifest where the wave interference patterns are thickest. The lowest frequency waves would therefore have very long wave-lengths.

Time-Travel & Dimensional Travel

Shamanic practitioners have been able to reach a state of consciousness, which is reminiscent to sleep. Scientists have identified the brain wave pattern to be theta. Through this trance state, they remain awake. They have shifted their perception, whilst recognizing that their consciousness is not confined to their bodies. They see consciousness in everything. By choosing to observe themselves as spirits traveling over telephone wires or floating in thunderclouds, they are tuning to the consciousness in these objects. This is more or less an extended self-observation and that is precisely that which one must practice in order to regain ones lost senses and travel more effectively. Everything in nature undergoes self-observation. It is a process wherein each observer defines that which is outside of his or her self. The key here is learning to extend that which one calls the self beyond the normal boundaries. Self-observation occurs even in atoms. The atom exists in stable energy patterns known as states. In order to maintain a state of energy, the atom must recognize itself, observe itself to be in a state. If one considers that an observation is an interaction involving a transition between two states, the observer state and the observed state. When an object is being observed in the outside world, according to quantum physics, the state of the object suddenly takes on a discrete value. It appears in the world. And simultaneously, one becomes aware of it. If one considers that objects are not truly solid, the atoms of the object would more than likely alter their behaviour. One may consider the analogy of Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Nevertheless, the atom continually checks its energy state by constantly involving itself in its environment, even if the environment is simply empty space. Actually the electrons in the atom and constantly dancing, as it may, with the photons of light that they emit. Therefore, they are continually emitting and absorbing, or even observing themselves. “Consciousness requires minimum stimulation time of 0.5 seconds {neuronal adequacy}, no matter what the intensity.” [Eccles, 1965] Additionally, it is also known that mankind functions largely on an unconscious basis, one may not be entirely aware of the interactions and travels that occur. According to variant aspects of shamanism all agree upon one single reality. Within this one single reality without past, future or the passage of time, it is likely that only the present moment would exist. Time, therefore, is not merely illusory, it is also simultaneous. Yet, the words of Fred Alan Wolf seem more fitting in this context “The ability to transcend the death of the body-mind by the intent of the shaman alone to convince the underpart to form an ally, to become an accomplice, in it’s own death.” The ego technically becomes an accomplice in its own removal during the process of self-actualization or enlightenment.
Hypothesis: Increased energy signatures due to a form of energy transfer around certain periods of chronological time, as civilisations were more prone to observing the past and the future, which would technically linger within the neural cell memory or even genetic sub-code, as a kind of latent psychic ability, as it may.

Quantum Physics of Death

“There is more suffering the farther you go. The deeper you seek, the more you suffer, yet the greater is your gain, your insight and your vision.” Death, in essence, is a doorway. It represents a transition of consciousness within the quantum system. When the body is convinced that it is dying, the mode of reality perception shifts. It must, for the usual mode of perception, the one that have all acquired in life, is no longer carrying out its prime function, keeping the body alive. In Wolfs model of reality, the sensory apparatus perceives more than one is actually aware of. That which is perceived as being non-threatening is simply ignored. It is there, however. Within society. There are countless true dangers. Humanity lives in a highly artificial situation. We have dangerous means of moving ourselves at high speeds from one location to another. In an airplane, even though we may manage to fall asleep, we are constantly aware of the probability of danger. The same is true for a car, which is moving at high speed along the highway, or even in a house with electrical appliances surrounding the individual on a daily basis. The danger, however, is mollified rather severely. Each moment that passes without a negative event occurring soothes the individual into a false sense of security, although the danger is rather apparent. Once the individual has separated oneself from their natural environment, it takes approximately a week until the consciousness has adjusted to the situation and develops senses to aid the survival of the new circumstance. Nevertheless, within the Tibetan Book of the Dead, there are instructions on how to provide for the spirit after it has departed the body and is in a disorientated state. When an individual dies, they have to be incredibly evolved and powerfully oriented in order to move outside the body and overcome the sudden state of disorientation. The practice in shamanism is rather similar, as it utilizes a rubber hammer and tap the deceased on the head three times, then they begin to talk to him.
If one considers the holographic universe paradigm, one will notice that a hologram contains multiple images. By changing the light source that illuminates the hologram, different images will appear. The hologram has encoded in it a series of possible images. That which is seen is dependent upon how it is seen. However, similar to a hologram, one must know that to look for when experiencing a spirit. Senses that have been developed beyond the physical. In Einsteinian relativity the observers in relative motion would measure time and space intervals differently. If one were to consider whether the observer was moving superluminally, which is faster than the speed of light. According to relativity, the observer could not have a mass. In other terms, he could not be made of matter, as modern science could understand it. If the imaginal time passed perpendicular to time, therefore the individual could technically be reborn at the time of death.

Group Consciousness

A wise man once stated “We judge as we possess ego. Without ego, you cannot judge.” The absence of judgement itself is perceived as being a state of love. As discussed in the book, truth and love are synonymous, in essence. Conclusively, a reality, which is based upon the principle of interconnectedness would be similarly based upon the conception of unconsciously linking the psyche of a species. In contrast to a hive mind, the connection would be unconscious and would surface in circumstances of survival, extreme emotion or superior revelation. In consequence, I recently stumbled upon an article, which illustrated a neurocognitive epistemological perspective of shamanism and its effects upon the human mind. The biological foundation for a shamanic epistemology is indicated by the cross-cultural distribution of a shamanic cosmology derived from knowledge obtained during altered consciousness. These special forms of consciousness involve integrative brain conditions that access ancient ways of knowing, expressive systems which have evolutionary roots in the communicative and social processes involved in animal displays or rituals. These were augmented over the course of hominid evolution into expressive and mimetic activities that provided a basis for significant epistemological expansions of consciousness exemplified in shamanic out-of-body (OBE) experiences. These manifestations of consciousness involved new modes of self and processes of knowing, reflecting selection for expanded symbolic brain processes that enhanced psychological, cognitive integration and extra-personal cognition. Shamanic alterations of consciousness also contributed to experiences of personal spirit essences and encounters with extrapersonal spirit presences that reflected activation of innate brain operators involving self-structures and psyche. The evolution of the hominid capacity for knowing involved new understandings of nature (animism), mind (spirits), self (power animals) and others (gods) that were elicited by shamanic practices and expressed though a shamanistic ideology. These phenomena reflect activation of innate aspects of consciousness, illustrating features of shamanism as a neuroepistemology. Shamanism has conceptualized special forms of knowing embodied within the shamanic consciousness. The article related this phenomena to collective dimensions of consciousness that serve as a conscience of the universal mind. Winkelmann stated in another one of his academic papers on shamanism that “The ancient biological bases of shamanic rituals and their adaptive functions are illustrated by understandings of the nature of animal ritual, as provided in such works as The Spectrum of Ritual (d’Aquili et al., 1979) and Supernatural as Natural: A Biocultural Theory of Religion (Winkelman and Baker, 2008). An evolutionary biological approach to ritual illustrates that shamanic rituals have ancient roots and were built out of prior adaptations revealed in the homologous behaviors humans share with other species.
As shamanism is in favour of the existence of consciousness within all objects, I came across an old experiment that I thought rather relevant in regards to group consciousness that I recently rediscovered. In 1973, a collection of these ideas and out-of-the-box experiments involving plants was published in the book The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkinsand Christopher Bird. The book covers a wide range of topics related to plant life touching on the subjects of soil treatments, plant auras, force fields, plant communication, electromagnetism and extrasensory perception (ESP). In the chapter dedicated to Plants and ESP, the authors focus on the findings of the polygraph scientist Cleve Backster‘ (b.1924). In 1966, Backster was anInterrogation Specialist collaborating with the CIA in lie detection when out of curiosity he decided to attach the electrodes of one of his lie detectors to the leaf of his Dracaena. Backster intended to verify if the leaf would be affected by water poured on to its roots, and if yes, how soon. As the plant was sucking the water up its stem, the galvanometer didn’t indicate any changes. Instead of trending upwards like Backster expected, the pen on the graph was actually trending downwards. But it was what happened in the following minutes that changed Backster’s life and worldview. Being a veteran examiner on polygraphs, Backster knew that the most effective way to make the galvanometer jump was by making the person taking the test feel threatened. He decided to do the same with the plant, starting by dunking a leaf of the Dracaena in a hot cup of coffee, but with no results on the graph. Backster started to think about what would be the worst threat to the life of a plant – the imagery of fire came up in his mind, and at that precise moment the graph made a sudden upward sweep. Backster had made no movements toward the plant or toward the polygraph. Could the plant have been reading his mind? Or were they simply more aware than he was?
One group of parapsychological studies, the ganzfeld studies, have received more recent publicity, in terms of published articles examining the overall effect of the database, than has any other area of psi research. This attention is the result of detailed meta-analyses of the ganzfeld studies by a leading ganzfeld researcher, Honorton, and a critic of this work, Hyman. “Experimental Evidence Suggestive of Anomalous Consciousness Interactions” was published by the Department of Psychology in Edinburgh by Deborah L. Delanoy. The ganzfeld debate, often referred to as the “Honorton/Hyman debate”, will be summarised below, but first a brief description of a ganzfeld study will be presented. The ganzfeld technique consists of presenting a relaxed percipient with homogenous, unpatterned visual and auditory stimuli, which assists in increasing the mental imagery experienced by the percipient. While receiving this stimulus, the percipients verbalise all their experiences, their goal being to gain impressions which will relate to a sensorially isolated and remote target picture or short video clip. The “target” is being watched frequently by another person (a “sender” or “agent”) who is attempting mentally to convey impressions of the target to the percipient or “receiver”. These studies utilise a “free-response” methodology, in which the contents of the target material are unknown to the receiver (i.e., the percipient is “free” to respond with whatever impressions they generate, as he or she has no information regarding the specific contents of the possible target). The most common method of analysis used in ganzfeld studies is for the percipient or an independent judge(s) to compare the obtained impressions to four different target pictures/video clips, one of which is a duplicate of the actual target, looking for similarities. Using blind procedures, the judge has a one in four chance of correctly identifying the actual target (i.e., mean chance expectancy = 25 per cent “hit” rate). Study outcome is based upon whether similarities between the percipient’s impressions and the actual target enabled the target to be correctly identified significantly more often than chance would allow. For further information regarding this experimental technique, procedural details and methods of analysis, see Honorton, and Honorton et al. A meta-analysis of twenty-eight ganzfeld studies was performed by Honorton (1985), in response to a flaw analysis of the ganzfeld database conducted by Hyman (1985). Hyman found a highly significant overall effect in the database, but concluded that this effect was negated as he found a significant relationship between the study outcomes and procedural and statistical flaws contained in the studies. However, Hyman’s flaw categorisations were severely criticised by Honorton, and a psychometrician, Saunders, found faults in Hyman’s statistical analyses. Honorton’s meta-analysis found there were no significant relationships between study outcomes and quality. The overall composite (Stouffer) z score for the 28 ganzfeld studies included in the Honorton meta-analysis was highly significant (z = 6.6, p < 10-9, two-tailed). The effect sizes were homogeneous, overall and across experimenters. The discrepancy between the Honorton and Hyman analyses of the ganzfeld studies prompted a further meta-analysis by Rosenthal, an independent specialist in meta-analysis. Like Honorton, Rosenthal found an overall composite z score of 6.60 for the twenty-eight ganzfeld studies. His file drawer estimate agreed with that of Honorton, requiring 423 unreported, null studies to negate the significance of the database. Here it is worth noting that another critic, Blackmore conducted a survey to discover the number of unreported ganzfeld studies in 1980, prior to the Honorton/Hyman debate. Her survey found 32 unreported studies, of which 12 were never completed, and one could not be analysed. Of the remaining 19 studies, 14 were judged by Blackmore to have adequate methodology, with 5 of these (36 percent) reporting significant results. She concluded that “the bias introduced by selective reporting of ESP ganzfeld studies is not a major contributor to the overall proportion of significant results”. Rosenthal, after considering the possible influence of various flaws upon study outcome, concluded that the overall hit rate of the studies could be estimated to be 33 percent, whereas chance expectancy was 25 percent. In 1986 Honorton and Hyman published a “Joint Communiqué” in which they agreed that there was an overall effect in the database, but continued to disagree as to what extent this effect may have been influenced by methodological flaws. In their communiqué they outlined the necessary methodological precautions that should be taken to avoid the possibility of future studies giving rise to the same level of debate that had surrounded the previous ones. They concluded that more studies needed to be conducted, using the controls they had documented, before any final verdict about the database could be reached. Honorton and his research team proceeded to design a new ganzfeld system which met the criteria he and Hyman had specified in their communiqué. This system, and studies using it, are referred to as “autoganzfeld studies”, as much of the procedure is under automated computer control in order to avoid the problems found in some of the earlier studies. Before Honorton’s lab closed in 1989, 11 experimental series, representing 355 sessions, conducted by eight experimenters, had been collected using the autoganzfeld. Honorton et al. published a summary of the autoganzfeld studies and compared them with his earlier meta-analysis. The autoganzfeld sessions yielded overall significant results (z = 3.89, p = 0.00005), with an obtained hit rate of 34.4 percent (with 25 percent being chance expectancy). The effect sizes by series and by experimenter were both homogeneous. Comparing the autoganzfeld outcomes to those of the 28 studies of the earlier meta-analysis revealed very similar outcomes, with the autoganzfeld showing slightly better ESP scoring than that obtained in the earlier studies (autoganzfeld results by series: effect size or es = .29, earlier 28 meta-analysis studies by experiment: es = .28). Hyman, in 1991 [20] commenting upon a presentation of these results by the statistician, Utts, concluded that “Honorton’s experiments have produced intriguing results. If, as Utts suggests, independent laboratories can produce similar results with the same relationships and with the same attention to rigorous methodology, then parapsychology may indeed have finally captured its elusive quarry.”. Replications are currently being undertaken at various
labs; the only replication using a full autoganzfeld environment which has been reported to date was conducted at the University of Edinburgh [21], where the obtained significant, overall hit rate was 33 percent (z = 1.67, p < 0.05). This outcome is consistent with Honorton’s autoganzfeld scoring rate of 34.4 percent, and replicates Rosenthal’s hit rate estimate based on the earlier ganzfeld studies. The procedure for the Edinburgh study incorporated additional safeguards against subject and experimenter fraud. In conclusion, the findings from these meta-analyses suggest that consistent trends and patterns are to be found in the database. The consistency of outcomes found in the ganzfeld research, the robust PK effects, the modifying variables revealed by the precognition database, the variety of target systems displaying DMILS effects and the correlations found with personality traits are all indicative of lawful relationships. Given these relationships it is difficult to dismiss the findings as “merely an unexplained departure from a theoretical chance baseline”. Whether these effects will prove to represent some combination of currently unrecognised statistical problems, undetected methodological artifacts, or, as seems increasingly uncharacteristic of consciousness. Now, if one were to consider the ganzfeld effect in relation to group consciousness one may be able to imagine that the units that humanity have come to form would connect on a deeper level. For instance, race consciousness. Without any racial bias, african americans would naturally feel more drawn to and understood by their own kind. Yet, once one has gotten passed race, one could view the connection to ones gender as a form of consciousness, as it is consistent of a unique identity. Would it not be possible that individuals that believe or are drawn to the same archetype would be drawn to individuals with similar beliefs due to the law of attraction? Or even to its exact opposite, dependent upon the individual. Nonetheless, once one has moved beyond those groups, one arrives at the collective of the species, which would be innately responsible for the survival of the species, however what if life in this universe would be threatened and almost all alien and humanoid races were to be driven to near extinction, would the collective consciousness of all remaining beings not be focused towards survival in order for the dream to persist, as it may? But then, if all beings were to pass on around the same time, leaving not one being alive, would the dream truly persist for another billion years until new, intelligent life is created? Or would the focus shift towards sub-atomic or atomic life? If one considers the concept of group consciousness, which is probable from a quantum physics and shamanic perspective, the concept of solipsism would be increasingly evident at the core of every being, forming the collective unconscious out of group consciousnesses. There is only one negative aspect that I can observe, as I have listed out quite a few positive aspects, such as the increased capacity survival and the creation of reality through perception, illustrated by the ganzfeld effect that leads us closer to the true nature of reality. Nevertheless, the one negative aspect is the unconscious knowledge that separation within physical reality is illusory, which can create a void that cannot be filled.
