Quote from: Gandalf

Perhaps it is the scene of an extreme emotional incident, like a murder, suicide etc that sometimes actually *causes* this altered magnetic field..
you then have a resulting 'haunted location'

Doug


Although I never found any mention of emotions (and deaths) causing changes in magnetic fields in surroundings, the reverse is possible. That is, magnetic fields(especially the low frequency one's) can cause certain weired effects. Pl check this link -

A quote from
http://www.borderlands.com/archives/arch/elf.htm

Quote
Subjects verbatim reports were quite revealing. (Keep in mind that none of the subjects actually said they felt the ELFs.) The most common verbatim reports occurred between 8.6 and 9.6 Hertz. Common statements were subtle "tingling" sensations in the fingers, arms, legs, teeth, and roof of the mouth. Two subjects reported a "metallic" feeling in their mouth. One subject reported a "tightness" in the chest and another subject reported a "tightness" in the stomach. Several subjects also reported sensations when the ELF frequency was between 6 and 7 Hertz. The verbatim responses in this range were "ringing" in the ears, "flushed" face, "fatigued", "tightening" in the chest and "increasing" pulse.


Sounds familiar ? Smiley

The brain operates through chemicals, electric and magnetic forces. These are the (known)media through which information flows, so it is only natural that when you mess with any of these, brain *malfunctions*.

I'm not qualified to say about the 'astral' part, but ghosts do look like entirely subjective phenomena, irrespective of causes. There is a twist, btw, some people have witnessed objects moving around, but I feel that is entirely different phenomena, and is commonly mistaken for the objective presence of a ghost.

So it may be  logical to think that an astral entity may produce psychokinetic phenomena.


That is very much possible, but we don't see astral entities moving stuff around here on physical everyday. In rare cases they do, but those are mischievous and irritating types or they need powerful human mediums.

I feel its difficult for an average astral being who lives next door to achieve such feats.

Say, I died, and I want to tell something urgent to my family, before its too late. By the power of will I manage to move some things (and break a few), but that didn't communicate the message.

One day I discover that placing my astral finger between the switch contact of an electric torch, shorts it and lights it up. I start sending on-off Morse code and they decode it. Effective !

Did anyone on astral made any such discovery yet?

Anyway the most easily manageable by the mind is electromagnetic fields


Little vague, because the mind may or may not have a body to operate through. By mind, do you mean the mind thats operating in physical or in astral ?

We certainly know that brain produces EM fields, and so does whole body, as the nerves fire and ions move around in blood. And the physical body can affect a device sensitive the EMFs, such as a galvanometer.

But the question is,  can our physical body or any other thing that produces EMFs affect anything that is in astral, i.e. non-physical?

Its like learning to swim.
Someday when your boat sinks, (and it will....) you wont sink with it and find your way out easily.

not everyone is so smart, and will want to show off.


And they do it everytime.
And fail, because skeptics are smarter. evil

On a more serious side, I feel you cant use the so called 'psychic abilities' too much for practical things, even if they exist. There seems to be some sort of check from beyond....somebody is ensuring that the physical remains strictly physical.

Otherwise, R Bruce or Monroe would be the kings instead of B Gates.
Even if the mentioned masters are too modest to do such thing, there are many who'd have done that.
Common sense.....just think.

First of all : If I ever get a psychic ability, I wont go for a million, I can use it to make billions. A tiny supernatural skill can give me a huge advantage over normal guys.

Second of all : I wont go out in street declaring that ability. It will make more enemies and make people careful, when you are around......decreasing your chances of getting a billion, and even surviving.....

Tell everybody that you dont bath for months and that because of that you got some kind of incurable skin infections which are highly contagious.

Works everytime.

Go a head and make green-red marks on your skin and show him a doctors prescription.
483  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / machine that does telekinesis on: February 21, 2005, 16:57:20
I feel this thread got derailed a bit, so I'm bringing it back on tracks.

To create a telekinetic device, one must know what moves something, when you are having a thought of moving it in your mind. I mean, how this mental intension in translated into a physical effect.

Once we know the reason, we can try to create a machine which will be programmed to move something on press of a button or a verbal command. (A telekinetic Joystick)

We can also create a device to pick up the thought, amplify it, send it to something and move it.

Looks like too far fetched.... but its a start Smiley
484  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Astral Interface on: February 21, 2005, 16:41:47
My past attempt :

Having read that EVP uses noisy tapes and some ambient noise to get the voices on tape, I tried to find out the reason. The only guess they could make was that spirits could affect the ambient noise slightly and produce some voice etc. In absence of any noise, you get a blank tape, mostly.

Although I was somewhat doubtful of this theory, because you can hear a lot of things on a noisy tape which are made up by our brains unconsciously, in its  desperate attempt to figure out the meaning of sound....; I tried to setup a somewhat similar thing, a few months back.

I used a capacitor type microphone attached to a PC soundcard, these can be sufficiently noisy. Then I wrote a program in VC++ to analyze the sound samples. It outputted a small blue square on a black background in  rows with time, and whenever noise value deviated from the mean-square value by some small amount, it changed to yellow. So you get a pattern of blue and yellow on the screen.

Then I took my pendulum and explained the thing in air, to anyone who is listening in astral, and requested some communication.Hoping that a spirit trying to communicate will see the yellow square if he affects the noise in microphone and will try to create a meaningful pattern on the screen (like a letter/word), I let it run for many nights.

I did get yellow squares on the screen...but in a random manner. I got them again in a similar way when I did not request any communication. So everything remained inconclusive.

Perhaps it was too complex for the spirits Wink

Is it possible for a spirit to affect physical matter?
Like moving something/producing heat/sound/light/affecting EM fields. Or may be microscopic changes in matter/material properties.
What are the ways in which they do so?

This question is related to this thread on creating an astral interface here -
http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17445

Also, can a physical being/event affect something in astral? Like when I switch on a light bulb, does it produce any effect at all in astral?

So many questions.... yes, but I need some ideas Cheesy
486  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / The 'White Light' Trap??? on: February 21, 2005, 07:12:01
I think its utterly boring to merge with golden light and sleep there for billions of years... I cant even think of it.
I'd rather go into white one and kick the bottoms of anyone who has set up this trap, then demolish everything there with a nuke and take over the throne of white light.  evil  Cheesy

Anyone who tries to brainwash you with - do this and you are saved , do this and you suffer for eternity..... is just trying to start a new cult.

Hi,
This is my first post here Smiley How are you all...

The reason for posting is that nowadays I'm onto something, and you must have guessed it from the topic.....that I'm trying to create an Astral Interface.

Most of you are aware of many methods to communicate with entities in 'other worlds', like pendulums/human mediums/EVP and the most direct one - i.e. OBE. Now we all know from our first hand experiences and experts accounts that all these methods are very unreliable, erratic and accessible to a few fortunate ones.

My wish is to create a device which will be very reliable, accurate and will not need years of practice to operate. It will be a kind of material-astral communication device - an interface between material and astral world.

I donít mean to do this overnight, by just some magic, but by using a scientific method. And I donít want to do it secretly, and want help of anyone who is interested in this matter. At most I'd fail but there is no harm in trying sincerely once. Is there?

Btw I'm an Electronics and Telecom engineer with additional knowledge of computers and programming languages. I'd devote my free time and resources to construct such a device, and I'd like anyone, who's interested, to join hands.

Now why use artificial means to access the mysterious, when you have a mental ability to do so? Perhaps we'll know something important which will accelerate personal growth of a not so gifted person. If we attempt the communication using various methods, perhaps we can succeed in some of them. Just like we are doing in
the fields of AI and ALife. If we shoot many arrows from many directions, perhaps we will be able to hit the target sooner. The target is only one - gaining more and more knowledge of the 'other worlds'.

Now the plan -
Find out something physical which can be affected in some manner by both physical and astral beings, it will be a transducer. (for example - a microphone is a transducer which translates sound into electrical signals)

Then arrange a setup like this -

Physical Information <--> Encoding/Decoding <--> Transducer <--> Encoding/Decoding <--> Astral Information

Physical info can be written or spoken words. Astral info can be something which astral beings can very easily percieve. We need a transducer which at least has two distinct states both in astral and physical, for a start. So we can use binary encoding. But more complex transducers with multiple states can also work.

The setup actually depends on the kind of transducer. The part on the right of transducer must be created by astral engineers or a physical engineer who can astral travel. So we need collaboration between physical and astral engineers here. My guess is that they are better equipped than us, and wont find any difficulty doing it.

Who will tell them to do this? Perhaps one of our gifted members. He will find out interested entities on the other side and seek their help. Once a prototype is assembled, which can be a dot-dash telegraphy kind of system, we can proceed to more complex systems.

Some day I hope to create a device which will relay visuals from the astral to the physical - an astral TV may be Smiley

I'll post the design document soon, and more detail plan in next reply, as this one is getting long. Meanwhile all ideas, bright and dull, are most welcome.
