1  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Anyone have success despite adhd? on: June 28, 2018, 14:34:48
Many people report the same thing and they don't have problems with "Dopamine". They just get bored of staring a darkness.

Maybe they all do have problems with dopamine and just aren't aware of it, its a scale obviously. Something as simple as looking at images on Instagram is more stimulation than the human brain is evolved to cope with. I don't know anyone my age that doesn't masturbate to pornography, its very harmful but it is the new normal.

I don't relate to being bored of staring at darkness personally, I've had the most success that way. The staring at darkness part feels like a reprieve from the effort of visualization for me. I can see why people may not have the patience to wait like that though.

For lack of a better term, my guides have been telling me for years that I won't be able to astral project until I quit all addictions. On a physical level it creates a barrier to the process. On a subconscious level I feel too judged to be face to face with entities there.

On the flip side I have one piece of affirmative evidence that increased levels of dopamine can make projection effortless. My fiancé was able to do it on accident with a drug that increases dopamine a couple of years ago.

It just makes sense to me that a lack of dopamine tends to result in a lack of focus and that works directly against projection. Highly stimulating activities tend to induce a state of hyper focus in such individuals, that is also my experience with e-sports. If there was a way of inducing the hyper focus in a mental rundown projection should be very easy, its just very difficult to produce a topic that provides enough stimulation. A few months ago I recognized that sexual fantasies with masturbation meet the criteria, but that is using a physical stimulus to assist the dopamine flow.

So in other words, dopamine receptor upregulation. I've kind of tried that but to have a noticeable impact you'd have to quit all high dopamine activities which isn't really an option. An alternative is to use a dopamine reuptake inhibitor such as methylphenidate which I've started taking today, will be interesting to see how it affect my meditation ability. I'm only guessing but I think meditation could result in upregulation as the brain would eventually adapt to the low level of stimulus, however for me, so far meditation has only resulted in my mind coming up with ways to stimulate itself.

I'm not an expert on brain chemistry, nor am I am sure if it makes a difference I practice, but I believe it is a little more than making the receptors more sensitive. The amount of dopamine that is released in the first place is related to perceived and habitual rewards. If my brain knows that e-sports are available I'm getting a smaller release for non-esport activities regardless of how sensitive my receptors are, thus I will struggle to find motivation to begin a phasing session. Furthermore if I use willpower to force the visualization, I won't be able to hold it for longer than a few seconds as the brain is withholding dopamine to discourage me from continuing with this "waste of time activity".

I'm sure you have experienced what I am describing above where you have to constantly reset the visualization as the mind gets bored with it, it is painstaking and requires so much effort that it creates anxiety and makes projection impossible. I think everyone agrees that the secret to projection is to be _completely_ immersed in anything (non-physical). This is the secret to altered states of consciousness even in waking life, such as the UFC fighter Donald Cerrone who regularly has out of body experiences while fighting.

It is the same as the flow state. To achieve flow the activity must be sufficiently challenging to not be boring, and not so difficult as to create anxiety. That middle ground is where the dopamine is flowing properly. Its a feedback loop where one is aware of the fact that they are doing well and allow themselves to be drawn into the activity.

It might not be a reasonable option to quit all high dopamine activities. I really do enjoy e-sports, but I enjoy it more and suffer less consequences if I don't overdo it. Certain activities I think really do need to be mostly quit - the extremes like pornography I think affect the brain for many days, and daily recreational drug use probably isn't going to work for brains like ours.

It might be worth pointing out that for me, dopamine levels directly and strongly affect my lucid dream recall and in-dream lucidity. If you don't have enough dopamine to dream well, you don't have a snowball's chance of conscious projection in my observation.

I've had this feeling too. One would think that after all those attempts something would've happened even if by accident but no. All I got was some LDs which I can't choose to have and happen from luck. Almost like having the ability to project at will suppressed. The scary part is that this kind of makes sense as I definitely would be addicted. However, Tom Campbell disagrees with this so I don't know what to think.

I've never succeeded by accident either. But I have projected while aware with helping hands, such as wake and back to bed where the mind is so chemically primed that a visualization is not needed. Also when using the Wim Hof Method to clean up my brain, it is basically the same as wake and back to bed for the next 10 minutes. Its possible to force a conscious projection without phasing or focus by using the lay perfectly still for a very long time method.

For Tom Campbell, maybe the experience is not addictive. It probably depends on what you do there, if you go with the intent to have a wild trip I can't see how it wouldn't be as addictive as any hard drug (even more so because there are more possibilities and no consequences). If you go with the intent to learn and maybe help people, it isn't the same experience in my mind.

"Wondering if it's even possible with the condition."

I've thought about this question a lot myself, also being a person with a dopamine disorder. And also going many years without a modicum of success in the realm of phasing.

I'm not going to say its impossible, but the reality is that it might be far more difficult to achieve than it is for someone with "normal" brain chemistry. Brain chemistry can make someone a natural at projection, drugs that increase focus can make anyone a natural in my experience.

It is incorrect to say that dopamine disorders are the same as normal boredom and that trying harder is an easy solution. It is true that dopamine disorders are more common today due to technology. A brief example being that an animal with low dopamine cannot try to eat food in front of its face to save itself from starvation, it is difficult to imagine a greater motivation.

My new hypothesis is that the secret to success for dopamine disorders, and this extends to normal people with modern habits too, is not only to try harder at projection or endlessly search for the holy grail technique. The dopamine disorder itself must be addressed as a root cause of the problem.

The dopamine disorder has implications in spirituality I feel, and this is backed up by the book "Why Buddhism is True". It makes sense that low dopamine makes one predisposed to addiction and also prone to pursue activities and habits involving high stimulation.

Looking back at my own habits and pursuits, although I was unconscious of the fact, they have been driven by dopamine disorder. Sometimes for the better, we seek rewards when others are satisfied to watch TV. Sometimes for worse, we cannot stop thinking about e-sports at a "boring" social event.

It might just be that temperance is the answer. If one is unable to focus on phasing, is it because of the indulgence in other stimulus in regular life? If one could become sober, one could focus, and then the positive aspects of a dopamine disorder can be harnessed, the motivation to achieve.

One last thought that has been on the front of my mind since the first time I imagined what the experience of astral projection would be like - it is dangerously stimulating to the point of losing interest in this reality altogether. I have always felt that my access to conscious projection is deliberately limited because the experience is too addictive for me.

It is theorized by some that projection is like an extra curricula activity, it is beyond the prototype for the physical reality experience, and will only be permitted when the probability of benefits to the individual is high. Are we addicted to the idea of projection and would we become addicted to the reality of the experience? The truth is that I cannot imagine how full control projection is not the most stimulating experience possible for a human, and that scares me.
4  Metaphysics / Welcome to Quantum Physics! / Rife Machines on: April 20, 2018, 20:27:56
Rife machines use a harmonic combination of sound waves and radio waves to stimulate pathogenic microbes into mortal oscillatory rate. To think of it simply it is like an opera singer with both an audible and high inaudible range that work together to shatter little wine glasses hiding out in our cells.

This technology originally came from Tesla, but was rediscovered by Royal Rife, Professors at Albert Einstein, and Physicist Bob Beck in various implementations. All of their techniques are known to be capable of eradicating fungal, viral, bacterial and parasitic organisms in the body.

The most advanced publicly available Rife machine available today is widely believed to be the GB4000 because it can run 8 frequencies at once, has a superior range, more power and supports emitting the frequencies in a short range via an original 1930's style plasma tube  with noble gases inside.

While this technology is powerful, direct and effective, it is not as sophisticated as other healing technologies that have been discovered recently. It just zaps bugs really well - alternative and credible experts believe bugs are the root cause of cancer and many other conditions.

Noble Prize winner, Luc Montagnier discovered that DNA reads and transmits frequencies. Most people reading this will intuitively know that is true. It is now possible to use advanced sacred geometry style mathematics and computer simulation to form extraordinarily sophisticated harmonic signals. They replicate the vibes emitted by the Great Pyramid, or the Sun for instance.

Furthermore, combining high fidelity valve amplifiers such as a serious audiophile would use, and advanced new age emitters, which use magnets and gems, it is possible to generate electro-magnetic fields containing DNA upgrade and cellular alignment instructions. There are various ways this is measurable such as flash freezing water under the influence of the Sound of the Sun to reveal sacred geometry. This can be thought of simply as quantum healing but seriously powerful to the point of being measurable with magnets. The most advanced machine of this kind is the Light Stream Wand.

The expense of both machines is comparable and the testimonials for both products are matrix shattering if they are genuine.

My instinct says that the Tesla based technology is a more powerful instant cure to illness. If I had a machine like that and could verify it worked, I would like to use it to help people in the spiritual community. Since these machines are naively dismissed as quackery, no licenses are required.

On the other hand, the quantum healing device is simply far more sophisticated, it may as well be Alien technology by comparison. Not only is it meant to be capable of miracle healing, but it can also improve all round well being and even promote ascension. A machine like this could be even more invaluable in helping those in the spiritual community.

Essentially either device is a leap of faith I am prepared to make after many hours of research. The quantum device fits the expanded model of my understanding of reality, in a forward thinking way and that it is better. What does your intuition say?
5  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What is the inner spheres? on: April 12, 2018, 17:31:36
I really don't understand all of that, but thanks for trying to explain that to me. 
No worries, I'm happy to hash it out in more detail.

Quote
With sounds we have doe, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, and back to doe.  The second doe sounds very similar to the first doe because it's the same note double the Hz.  So if the first doe is 60Hz, the second is 120Hz.  So there is 7 notes per octave.  And with colors there is the rainbow of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.  Again, 7 before they repeat again and higher or lower octaves.  I guess that's how I see these sub-dimension, not as nested dimensions, but as different degrees of the octave.  Someone said each plane has seven sub-planes.  Maybe there isn't really a correlation there, that's just what comes to my mind when I think about it. 
This is one of confusing issues about dimensions, we attach that word to multiple concepts. I don't know if you have ever seen videos or the book Flatlander. I wouldn't say 3d reality is a higher frequency than 2d for example, they are just configurations of reality. 4d from the perspective of our reality might be the ability to move to any other 3d location or time instantly like nightcrawler with more range and no delay. 5d might be more like the ability to traverse the set of possible parallel 3d realities. None of that is directly tied to frequency conceptually but it plays a role, that's mathematical dimensions.

Then you have an idea like the mystic 5d where "aliens" live. Its similar to 3d reality but "higher frequency" and thus the reality is more influenced by willpower, you can build a house by thinking it. These bands of reality can be thought of like octaves that we graduate through.

Quote
I don't know about that.  Wouldn't upwards be a higher vibration like the astral plane?  I've experienced that so I can imagine that.  But lower then the earth plane, that I can't imagine. 

The type of dimension I was referring to isn't lower like sub-earth plane. It is a nested dimension contained within 3d.

Quote
Could it really be that the mind of God is the computer generating all of these virtual realities?  We have all of these patterns that they find in nature which seem to indicate that nature is very mathematical.  Which seems to imply that its all computer generated. But would the mind of God really think or create mathematically?  I wouldn't think so.   

Yes, it is the best model for explaining reality in my view. Nature is based largely on fractals because those patterns can be used to generate content like this reality, we do it with procedural generated virtual reality games. It is logical that the mind of God is fundamentally mathematical. Consider this problem: how do we make consciousness from scratch? All you need is a binary medium of mystic origin that we will call source. Picture it like a still ocean, but some parts might have a ripple that can be turned on or off more or less randomly. Randomness eventually generates something less random, like an off on pattern. Then you decide off here means on there. Patterns of patterns develop. Memory develops and processing power, and the ability to perceive outcomes, modify choices. Given enough simulation time organic consciousness can be generated from psuedo-randomness.

The basis of consciousness is equally as mathematical as a computer or artificial intelligence. It simply uses our ocean of source and these fractal patterns for the circuitry. The ocean circuitry forms the primordial God self aware entity, and everything else is contained as a simulation within, just an extension of these circuits. The speed at which the source ocean can ripple is the fundamental frequency the "highest" the original experience.

The God computer has to decide how fast to run any sub-simulated reality. Maybe things will change there every 2 ticks of the God clock, so that consciousness has 1 extra tick to think about what it just witnessed. The frequencies of all dimensions derive from this concept, to what extent can they be viewed in slow motion by God? Of course we don't notice the slow motion because real time experience for us is driven by our clock. Remember that virtual realities are very relative, one simulation might contain a complex system of multiple octave planes at different frequencies, but they are all operating within the band of some fundamental frequency allocated by the computer.
6  Healing / Welcome to the Healing place! / Breast Cancer on: April 12, 2018, 10:30:04
My fiance has breast cancer. I have never been a big believer in energy healing, but I've known about this section, so here we are.

The condition is a 28 year old female, high grade cancer. Stage is unknown. It is likely a hormone responsive cancer.

Suspected root causes: Birth control implant used for nearly 10 years with the chemical levonorgestrel. It has been shown in studies to have an unexpected high number occurrence of breast cancer in Poland. Causes hormone imbalance and messes up natural processes of clearing breast tissue when pregnancies do not occur each month.

Gross deficiency in vitamin C stores. I have learned that daily recommended doses are based on preventing scurvy in 90% of the population. That leaves you just above deathly deficiency, not near effective plasma saturation levels. It took her 2 weeks to recover from a cold that I recovered from in 1 day, suggesting impaired immunity.

Gross deficiency in vitamin D blood levels. Our pills come in a maximum dose of 1000 IU without prescription. It is suggested by many experts that more like 50,000 IU per week is required to get blood up to the 120 nmol/L healthy levels of the Mediterranean population. Average blood levels for New Zealand is more like 16 nmol/L.

Cell membranes have low levels of electrons due to the consumption of low quality and or processed oils. Without these electrons oxygen cannot be attracted into the cell and it must mutate to survive on glucose via fermentation. This ties into sunlight resonance with electrons in the cell and bad voltages induced in our bodies by radio signals in the city.
7  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: What is the inner spheres? on: April 12, 2018, 10:01:45
If every plane does exist in a different frequency, why wouldn't the higher frequency planes be closer to Source and the lower frequency (dense planes) be farther from Source? 

I believe Tom Campbell says all these planes/frequencies are virtual realities and that the computer computing them has to exist outside the virtual realities.  Where is this computer?  Is it God/Source?   Is God outside these virtual realities?  And is that our ultimate reality - Oneness with God? 

This idea is based on nested realities or nested dimensions. Its easier to imagine the concept downwards from our dimension rather than upwards into the unknown. Artificial intelligence units can exist in a dimension nested within ours. The computer is indeed outside of their reality. When we turn on the simulation it is the equivalent of the big bang for that reality.

It might be true that the fidelity of a sub-dimension has to be lower resolution than the parent. That's to say if there are 100 atoms in our reality we can't real-time model 1000 atoms in our simulation with a processor built from 10 atoms.

These realities (ours and above) probably get computed discretely (look into digital physics). You could say our reality's fundamental clock is the time it takes a photon to move one pixel. Since the clock speed is fixed the speed of light is a fundamental constant of this virtual reality.

The parent dimension of ours could run on the same fundamental clock, but it isn't likely, it is more likely that it gets "millions" of ticks for every tick in our reality. Meaning that time spent in the dimension above ours (mentally or by resident entities) is comparable to the hyperbolic time chamber in Dragonball. You could die, live "10,000 years" incarnate back here and it might be 1 second later.

As you go up the nested dimension cascade eventually you must reach the "fundmental clock" or the "god clock". Its simulations within simulations. The big computer we think of as "God" is like the primordial simulation, an organic simulation of consciousness itself arising via the evolution process applied to randomness generated by "source energy" (mystic).

Every other simulation is happening within the "mind" of this big computer conscious God thing. The fundamental clock is the speed at which the God mind operates. It has little direct relation to time, because it is still virtual and self generated. A mind that "ticks" itself to process information generates a concept of time as we think it - the state I was before the tick, the state I was after the tick.

8  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / The Event - Mass Awakening - Dimensional Transcendence on: April 01, 2018, 05:53:07
Lots of us are talking about it. It has been predicted to happen, some say it already has happened. This idea is a global mindset shift, a domino effect triggered by a particular event. We are talking about a radical change unlike anything in our recorded history. We might gain highly psychic powers and the ability to more freely manipulate reality. Earth could move to the "5th dimension" as we are to believe other cultures have before us.

Is any of this real? Some people claim to already have moved over to 5d. What might the event be, how would it work? Start your speculation engines  evil
9  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Some basic questions about astral beings on: March 27, 2018, 10:22:41
Well that leads to a lot more questions. Perhaps I asked too many question at once. 

I know I can hear them and they are very negative and tormenting spirits, definitely not spirit guides in my case.  That's why I'm trying to learn as much as I can about them.  I thought the ones that latch onto us (spirit attachments) were on the earth plane and that is how they can see us but we can't see them.
Personally I still think a big part of it is spiritual superstition. There has been a voice in my head telling me I am garbage for most of my life. Our brains have different modules with different goals and they duke it out constantly; with some knowledge of how they work you can detect their motives and infer the source of that thought. Increasingly I find what I was led to believe could be guides or demons is just normal brain activity.
 
Quote
I also read that most of the places in the astral plane have their own reality and the beings there can not see our physical world.  Are there some astral places that can see our physical world?
I think it just works like a hierarchy. Any reality that is a superset of ours contains entities that can see what happens here. For realities that are parallel to us, maybe they can't, depends on the skill of the individual.

Quote
You mean when people talk about other dimensions of realities and that fact that some ETs are inter-dimensional and travel through different dimension with their spaceships that they're traveling through the different astral planes? 
Dimensions is a confusing term because it means lots of things. Our physical reality is a 3d dimension. A virtual reality inside our computers is also a dimension that is a subset of ours but it has nothing to do with 3d-4d-5d. There are dimensions that are a superset of this universe and all parallel universes. When people talk about 4d and 5d realities they are talking about planets like earth with a relaxed physics rule set that increases the weighting that expectation has on the quantum collapse of matter.

You cant build a spaceship in 5d and use that to teleport to the superset of your reality - that is like a character from your video game teleporting into your dimension in the flesh - it makes no sense. You can use the spaceship to enter other 4d or 3d realities like ours.

Quote
Why would money or jobs be necessary when thoughts create reality instantly there?
What if people have bad thoughts and need treatment? Who specifically is using thoughts to create the reality and to what end? For these realities to work they can't be a total free for all in terms of instant universal manifestation for everyone at the same time. They are just looser versions of our reality. I think it is more about culture and society than survival.

Quote
If we can move through solid objects in the astral but the residents there can't then we must seem like ghosts to them.
I was saying the residents there potentially can too, it depends on the collective rule set.

Quote
Well that sucks, what's the point of these planes if everybody is perceiving things differently there?  How can you make sense of anything?
It isn't everyone, its just us that can't make sense of it. That is why we are banned from going there. When one is mentally stable and adequately programmed they can perceive the truth. In general you need to master the way before being granted access. Sometimes you will be let in and get kicked for making a mistake like a chat room.

Quote
Ok, I'm confused.  We perceive some things differently (subjective reality) and other things we perceive the true data source (objective reality)? 
When photons enter your eyes you get the true data source. What you decode from that forms a subjective visual reality that closely approximates the data source. It is virtual and can be fooled easily as the brain tries to match various models with the data stream. One example is that the brain will show you dangers that don't exist based on a probability match - it helps people survive to think every stick is a snake.

When you no longer have physical senses and a brain to do the decoding you are off the map. Consciousness data in, subjective reality rendered. The signal to delusion ratio can be anywhere from 0% to 100%.
Quote
And if you cloned a universe like that and gave everyone jobs are those beings in your universe that now have jobs real or imaginary?  Is everything in your made up world a thought form and is that what dreams are?
They are imaginary for the most part. You are taking snapshots of the beings as they were and having them live out a different scenario. They would no longer have free will, they are just a good simulation of the free will choices that might have been made.

That is how dreams work, you are just ripping data out of the cosmos and doing random stuff with it. It might be close approximations of this reality at some point in time or a far removed branch off. Maybe it is someone elses "fan edit" that you happened across. Its an ocean of data out there.
10  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Some basic questions about astral beings on: March 27, 2018, 08:02:44
I'll give you some simple answers but I won't back them up in detail unless you have specific queries about how I got this information otherwise I'll be writing all day  evil

Do beings that live in the astral planes have tv's like we do?  Do they watch tv?  What about the beings that can see us but we can't see them - do they see their tv's and our tv's?  If we have our tv's on does it make it difficult for them to hear their tv's over the sound of ours?
Watching us is their version of TV for the most part. Just watching TV or watching people do stuff isn't a very rich experience. They want to experience it as we do, and they can, and do by latching on to our data stream. There are people latched on to you right now, they talk to you every day. They are like spirit guides, but more akin to when we yell at the person in the horror movie "dont separate from the group idiot!!!" knowing they cant really hear.

Quote
Do they eat and poop like we do?  Do they have to eat or is that optional?  I know their bodies vibrate on at a higher frequency, but do they have internal organs like us?  Do they have to eventually poop after they eat?  
Probably not, the more highly evolved the physical structure the less capable it becomes of dealing with contaminants. You might draw energy directly from something like sunlight instead of what we think of as food. In these dimensions objects like a piece fruit aren't just an object, they are imbued with the essence of fruit. For example you grow the tree from a memory of an orange tree from your childhood and with a specific nutritional intent. The orange is like a conscious entity, essence of your childhood.

Quote
Do they have vehicles like we do in the physical?  I know that when we astral project we can travel from one location to another instantly, but can they do that too?  
Yes, spacecraft that are generated by sculpting reality. In some dimensions you need AI to do it for you because the normal beings aren't sophisticated enough. You can come to this dimension in such a craft.

Quote
I heard they don't have jobs or money, is that true?  
It's true they don't have money, as money is a source of craving and encourages hording. A barter system is used instead. People still have jobs in a sense but it isn't about meeting the basic needs of survival like it is for us. More like being an artisan because you like it.

Quote
I heard they have houses but they don't build them like we do, they create theirs with their minds - thoughts manifest instantly in the astral planes.  Is that true?
Yes its true, like the fruit tree you can build a house from nothing that is alive and has your essence of home.

Quote
I heard that the astral plane that they're on seems just as real to them as this physical world does to us. So does that mean they can't move through walls or solid objects with their astral bodies like we can when we astral project to the astral plane?
I would argue their experience is a higher fidelity than ours and thus more "real" in the sense we think of it. The rules of the physics are more flexible but they are still based on mutual perception. If you were the only person around and you wanted to phase through a wall or deconstruct it I think you could. If someone held the intent to keep you out, you would be blocked. This is just like how disbelief can block psi phenomena here.

Quote
Do their bodies die like ours do?  Can they be killed and lose their astral body and end up on another plane in another body?
I think they tend to choose when they die. They can be killed depending on what type of body they have, but I think in most cases the bodies can be remade or regenerated. The form we know of as the alien grey is an artificial body.

I really don't get it.  Don't these realities or places on the astral plane already exist a certain way before you or I project there?  

It seems to me that my questions relate to the objective nature of the places and not to interpretations.  Either these things are true or not, even before I come along and interpret my experience there.  How does one person see a room as a bedroom while another sees it as an underground cave full of crystals and such?  Is one of them tripping on acid?  
Humans see colors based on the RGB spectrum, 3 colors to form the rainbow. Deep sea crabs have an 18 color based rainbow. You can't imagine how many more colors they see and the spectrum of electro magnetism that is tangible for them. The thing that makes the human experience consistent is our brains and our social programming. If you have no model in your consciousness for a boat and someone shows you a boat it just wont register as anything.

When you enter these totally foreign planes who knows how much you will be able to decode. You might be seeing a human world when everyone else has crab vision. Furthermore the subjectivity of reality is enhanced because there is no brain to keep your speculation in check. Think of it like how a powerful psychedelic drug can turn a consistent and familiar experience here into something totally subjective. The signal to noise ratio of the truth of reality vs your interpretation is a factor in every experience, more so outside of the human experience.
Quote
I have heard that on the astral plane thoughts manifest instantly - is this why people perceive that reality differently?  So two people going to the same reality would perceive it differently because they're thoughts are actually changing or molding that reality to conform to their beliefs?  If I expect to see the people there driving in cars even if they don't, then I will see them driving cars there?  Is that really how it works?  If I believe the people there go to job the way we do in this reality then I will see them going to job even if they really don't?  
Nah, things cant be in two exclusive states such as simultaneously having a job and not having a job depending on who is observing. You could totally enter a world and engage in a subjective delusion with wild interpretations but that's just happening in your mind as a transformation of the true data source.
Quote
I can perhaps see how my expectations and beliefs could change the environment like the room we're in, but how could it change the people there?  How can my beliefs that they drive cars and go to work make them drive cars and go to work if they really don't?
The thing is that the consciousness system is so free and so powerful that you can create a reality where people have jobs even if they originally didn't. Now that is your personal interpretation that has cloned a universe for as long as you continue to draw on the data. The same thing is possible with our physical reality history, you can do what ifs and live it out. Those realities aren't "real" in the sense that they aren't part of a collective plan, online multiplayer realm vs your single player save game.
11  Psychic and Paranormal / Welcome to Psychic and Paranormal! / Hypnosis produces paranormal feats on: March 21, 2018, 12:52:38
I recently heard of a hypnotist who used a subject from the audience to do something "impossible". The setup involved convincing the subject that his daughter was not in the room. We are to believe that the subject was not capable of perceiving his daughters presence in the room. The hypnotist then has the subject read inscriptions off their watch - through the body of the daughter whom they cannot see.

The idea is that with sufficient convincing of a certain fact our minds will decode information that isn't part of our physical senses and incorporate that into a consistent world view experience.

Anyone ever heard of or seen this applied?

Can we explain how it might work conceptually?

Hi I try to ap and thinking maybe energy blockages are stopping me?

What are good ways to detect and unlock them?

Another way to look at energy in our physical reality rule set is to consider, what can you DO here? In science energy is measured as the ability to do work. In the same way that a ball held in the air is given potential, our thoughts and ideas have potential.

Suppose you have an idea to transform the way humanity thinks - a massive global change in potential energy ideas - but you lack the self esteem to go out and enact this idea. That is a real example of energy blockage.

To find your energy blockages you need to reflect on what you want to achieve, that's the mental base of the energy source. Then think about why you doubt yourself with respect to these goals.

You guys really do underestimate your natural abilities!  undecided If you use technology this way, you are learning to "rely" on "it", the technology, which negates "effort".

A few weeks ago on the Connecting Consciousness podcast they spoke about a skill that some humans posses called wayfaring. It is the ability to basically find your way by intuition. Most taxi drivers have it, but it is far less prominent today because of maps and GPS navigation.

Supposedly without that dependency we would find our way via intuition. I decided to put it to the test and not use my GPS, I bet you can guess I got lost and was late to my appointment.

The idea to use affirmations to wake myself up in the middle of the night simply never entered my consciousness seriously. Maybe its because of a technology mindset, maybe also because I exist in a state of perpetual sleep deprivation affirmations would be unlikely to work.

Use of technology just seems like a balancing act. We could go back to tilling the fields by hand but then there is no time for astral projection.

Suppose I set myself up 1 night per week to sleep in a separate location and perform this Vigil technique. Would it be smart to rely on affirmations and potentially sleep through my chance for this week? That's the way I look at it anyway. The GPS gets me to the location I need to be to do what truly matters on that day. The alarm ensures I will get a chance to complete my goal.

I'm still a true believer in affirmations though. They work pretty well for me with lucid dreaming but there is definitely a limit to how reliable the results will be based on what you demand. I can ask for lucid dreams and dream recollection and it will work better each day, but there are some things like asking for specific experiences in AP that never seem to come true in the same way.

I think I used this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.northcube.sleepcycle&hl=en_GB

There are many free options out there, probably better apps, search for sleep cycle.

Suppose you have a fire cracker. From the attomic point of view you know the very placement of every atom and the electrons, protons and neutrons that make it. Those particals create the gun powder, fuze and the paper that holds its together. The fuze spontaneously ignites within a vast vaccum chamber. In theory, with presice physics, you can pinpoint exactly where each atom will end up.

Yes, with a perfect physics simulator and all of the data it should be possible to deterministically predict the outcome of an event. The problem is that doing that requires extraordinary computation resources.

Imagine it was your problem to solve - "how can we generate physical realities" - given powerful, but finite, processing and memory power. You could generate one deterministic reality. Or for the same price you could generate thousands of probabilistic realities. That means that the firecracker can be viewed as an algorithm that closely models deterministic behavior but it is really just a random quantum draw each time it blows up.

My view is that we live in the probabilistic reality because it fits the quantum physics data better and it is more sensible from an architectural point of view. Looking into the future we can make predictions about how the random draws are going to turn out but they can only ever be semi-accurate. In truth there are decisions being made outside of this reality system that impacts what happens inside. Your model would need to also account for choices of beings, and I think most of us would argue that many of those choices don't fully take place inside the physical system. A deterministic model needs the full picture, we would have to hoist it up to the dimension which contains ours as a subset to capture all the variables. That seems like an infinite cascade of dependencies since we are told that each dimension influences those beneath it.

Last night I set an alarm for 4.5 to 5 hours after sleep. When the alarm went off I went back to bed and didn't attempt anything. I also had another smartphone and shut if off because of the loud sound.

Any advice?

Thanks.

Sounds like you started with the intent to do something in the middle of the night but you were too sleepy to carry through. I have done this before. Our bodies don't like being woken up except at the end of these ~3 hour sleep cycles. There are apps that measure your breathing and wake you up based on these cycles but they don't work very well in my experience. Next time I try this I will set an alarm and set the phone up with a 5 minute reoccurring snooze. That way you can dismiss it over and over but it will keep coming back until you are ready to go.

Does this mean binaural beats would be the solution?

Maybe, you can use them to try and induce a specific brain wave frequency. I gave up on binaural beats fairly early on because I found that they grounded me here. The issue might have been that the beats targeted the wrong frequencies.

It might be that there is no one frequency that beats can really be tuned to for projection. I have read that true third eye awakening is not related to any particular brain wave state, it is actually about synchronization across a spectrum of brain wave frequencies operating simultaneously.

I think the fastest documented way to change brain state significantly is to engage in extreme sports. That kind of focus is immediate and immersive because it requires focus to not be badly injured. Going into our own minds and staying intensely focused by contrast, is not necessarily captivating or critical to our safety so it is much harder.
18  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: I did it. Sort of on: March 13, 2018, 03:27:42
My first conscious exit had that dream like quality. It hasn't been present in every conscious exit. If I remember correctly though the experience didn't feel that "dreamy" while I was there. Retrospectively after waking it felt much like a dream, but I wonder if that is because of our familiarity with the transition to wakefulness and the imperfect memories simply resemble the dream experiences we are used to.

If we were truly acutely aware of the dream quality of our experience that could act as a pretty good dream trigger. Works from time to time for me, but usually it isn't the atmosphere of the dream, its something that is factually awry to my normal experience.

It's interesting because in some ways the more realistic and immersive our NPR experiences become, the more difficult dream triggers seem to become because the experience is so convincing.
19  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Difference between Phasing/VibrationsObe? on: March 12, 2018, 03:49:08
My conscious exits of the "peel away" nature have commonly put me into the "real time zone (RTZ)", a similar physical environment. I don't think it is the same thing as what Kepple described as Focus 2. For me the Focus 2 experience is more like a lucid dream, or what a RTZ experience can become if it is taken over by subjective experiences.

I think the true nature is that Focus 2 is not a discrete state from the others. It is something that is always overlayed on your incoming data set. If you are very clear mentally you might experience the pure RTZ or some other zone. Similarly those experiences can be partially or fully distorted by what the interpretation you add. Focus 2 in essence is when you have left behind the external data streams and are self generating all the experience content.

The concept of Focus 2, this wild interpretation on reality, I think it is part of our waking consciousness right now too. It is the part people refer to when they say make your own reality, or your reality is what you put out and interpret. It is just highly exaggerated outside of the 3d reality.

There will always be those that claim you can do what takes 40 years of dedication in just a couple weeks with a magic pill or formula.  I have wasted enough of my life chasing these, in my experience they don't exist ... how would one even put an objective stamp on something like enlightenment for a study anyways it isn't something you can simply measure and put in a chart.

The experiment was conducted by having the monk meditate under the surveillance of some kind of EEG brain wave scanner. We can only speculate on his subjective experience, but objectively a specific brain wave frequency and pattern is achieved. We are led to believe that achieving that precise state isn't something that just happens, it is where you are at after 40 years experience.

Our guy then meditates using an audio feedback device. The device outputs a tuning pitch as you apply your intent, giving a compass direction to the correct mindset. After several weeks the subject was able to replicate the monk's measurements. Once again we can only speculate at their subjective experience, but there has to be some value in the mind set of 40 years of experience.
21  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Projecting Fast on: March 09, 2018, 03:30:10
There are studies that show that what you accomplish with one hour of meditation, in the field of enlightenment, trance, you can accomplish in a few minutes with a quick drop in frontal and parietal lobes activity.

See: "How Enlightenment Changes Your Brain: The New Science of Transformation" by Andrew B. Newberg and Mark Robert Waldman.

I've heard something that might be similar with David Asprey. He spent some hundreds of thousands of dollars replicating the mind set of expert Tibetan monks with a meditation training machine. Took only around 2 weeks apparently to achieve approximately the same results as it took the monk 40 years to get.

I'll probably read that book now, but is there any practical knowledge on dropping activity in those lobes?

Can anyone do it? What is your "fastest" projection and how did you do it? What is the primary mechanic that limits our ability to project quickly?

My fastest projection was by the wake and back to bed method. It was close enough to instant that I was unaware of any time passing between laying down and experiencing the exit. My hypothesis is that the primary limiting mechanic is rate of brain wave change, and that is why "priming" works in general.

Indeed, but does astral sex also cause physical reactions, or is that a distinctive quality of physical sex experiences?

Phildan1,
Yeah, it's kind of driving me mental lately.  LOL
They are their own worst enemy.

It's exactly why I try so hard to get people to lose the labels.  In the end, they only hold you back.

The goal one should try to have is to simply "be consciously aware while you're non-physical"... that's it.  That's the holy grail right there, and when they do it, they still don't believe it. 

I guess projection is whatever we think it is as individuals. I have been consciously aware while I'm in non-physical so many times. I still didn't experience what I think astral projection is if I was a first time poster. Maybe the best way I can describe it is that it is supposed to achieve a certain result on ones mind. For me it might be something like self actualization. I want to completely actualize everything about my astral experience instead of just participating or modifying. Explore the abstraction of consciousness. Communicate with beings. Be convinced of something to the core.

We ask for astral projection but I suspect what we really seek is astral prime. What is the thing that lucid dreams don't live up to in our minds? It might be that the experience is too limited compared to our awake imagination. We see the ability to create reality while asleep, and the ability to make clear decisions in a reality while awake, but usually exclusively. The idea to combine them is there for us to find.
