That's no surprise in regards to Windows. [Shocked)]

As for me seeing the future. Only at few and far between occasions. Last the thought of one of the guys I share an appartment with coming back from being away from a few days entered my head. Lo and behold, he did just a few moments after.

I also have Deja vu rather frequently.

Woe onto thee,
for the mind is a wonderful yet terrible thing. Wonderful, because it will allow you to create. Terrible, for it gives you no rest, no answers. Only questions... So many questions...
- So I question you, what is it that you truly want? You've wanted all the  power in the world and now you have it. What now? Indulge in fantasies that become real? Saturate your desires? Lower your cerebral cortex into a pool of endorphine? Will that make you happy, or just make the pain go away? The pain, caused by the screaming vacuum in the centre of our souls.
So far you've filled this emptyness with your aspirations to rise above the crowd, but now at your vantage point, what do you see? The faces of those those you left behind, frightened eyes, staring back at you? Is that still what you want? To be alone? Do you really think solitude is freedom?

Don't you want all these questions to go away? They reflect your emptyness, pointing at it.
A mirror is all the mind is. A mirror of yourself.
So what do you truly want? What is your true will?

A mirror image is an illusion it always is. Before you can find your answers you must stop lying to yourself. That is the true law of Karma.
29  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / seeing engery orbs on: January 23, 2004, 11:19:15
Having visions come to me when relaxing deeply is something that I do experience, but this is only when I'm relaxing. It probably has got something to do with the third eye chakra. I can feel mine quite intensly, and have done so all my life. Lately as I've been doing a lot of energy work the visions have become clearer to me and I've been able to have slight effect on what I'm seeing.
Still, I don't see energy orbs.

Like boydster said, they might be sylphs or thought-forms. Personally I don't see much difference between the two.

If you wish you might want to try to create one of these orbs by yourself. Time, attention, focus, intention, concentration, feeling, etc. should be what powers it. Depending on intention you might create what is called a 'servant'.
However, be advised. You are responcible for your servant's actions, and if you are not careful it might get out of control. It's not unlike a pet that needs to be trained.
When you're done with your creation you can deconstruct it by absorbing it into yourself.
Let creativity flow. [Smiley]
30  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / Physical vibes & cold wind. Advice sought! on: January 23, 2004, 10:48:18
You have physical vibes too? I mean muscles actually contracting and making a joint move?
How great is this movement for you, and does it disturb you? What do you think causes it?

On another note, I had a episode of astral/real-time vision last night, and one during the day, but was so suprised both times when I recogniced what it was that I didn't control my rections and opened my eyes. =/

Usually when I stay up late having done energy work I do function properly during the day, but suddenly I can become extremely tired and have to take a short nap.
31  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / Talking about OBE to "Others" on: January 21, 2004, 11:30:32
I'm fairly accomplished in the art of retorics (presenting an argument in a way the other party can accept etc.), so I'm not worried about looking silly when talking about it. Sometimes I also say "I don't know, and that's why I'm finding out." when the topic enters an area I'm not sure about. That line, to begin with, is why I started on this path. I realized I would not know for sure unless I attepted to do it for myself. Now that I have done it, my argument can sound like "It's hard not to believe when you've done it." Another efficient line is "It's not about believeing, it's about knowing."

I see myself very much as a scientist in this regard, but without the downright dogmatic subscription to the commonly accepted theories. Science is a question. Religion is an answer, but without either one you see no progress. When science claims to have the answer it takes the role of religion.
In this regard I'm free to investigate whatever I like since I do it in the name of science, as the name of science should be used. I attempt to prove things to be with or without fundation through my own experience and then build theories on that. Once a theory of mine shows that another phenomena might be possible then I attempt to gain personal experience in that as to give foundation to my theory.

Practical examples of this is showing that for instance Auras are a phenomena created by the charged particles moving in in the nerves of the human body. Chakras are nerve centers, and anyone who's ever been punched in the solar plexus can vouch for this. The brain is also a nerve center, but its complexity is extreme.
Along these lines I can expand my theories that we don't live in a physical reality, but in the world of the information we become aware of through our nerves. This in turn gives a new perspective where 'astral' dimensions are no less real than a physical one.
Due to the nature of information it allows enteties without physical bodies to exist. In fact, we are enteties of information augmented with physical bodies.
Altered States of Conciousness takes on a whole new meaning and depth.

I can usually raise the shadow of a doubt that I need in the mind of the other party even if he or she is the most hardened materialist. This is because I use this person's dogma, science, as a trusted pipe of information to seed these thoughts.
32  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Question for Beavis... on: January 06, 2004, 07:35:47
To make it complete. Just because we do not see it does not mean it does not exist. We are, after all, going for a Theory Of Everything.[Smiley]

A mathematical model without limitations above or below would be simpler to construct than one with a lower limit. The smallest values might not be in use, but that does not make it an invalid medium. Most likely it would not even be practical to use those smallest values in calculations either, and then we would be talking about a limit in mathematical presicion. In that sense you're right.
When looking at this model, all we really have is math.

They might work, but reason for working might be that you think it works. However, by a deterministic philosophy; if it works, it's true.
34  Integral Philosophy / Welcome to Integral Philosophy! / What if.... on: January 05, 2004, 11:24:01
The probability of you being aware is 1: 100% likelyhood.
You are aware of things.

Phyical reality might be just as much an illusion as astral reality, but you are aware of them both.

These are the basics. It's a world centered around yourself. What you do with it is up to you. Ask yourself, what do you wish to do?

35  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / are deities thought forms? on: January 05, 2004, 11:07:00
IIRC, the sages of India say that a Yogi who does not transcend but remains in this realm becomes a godform for a while, but will eventually have to return to Earth to in order to comlete the journy.

If a thought-form can be deconstucted, I don't know. What I do know is that all and everything is the subjct of evolution. Evolution walks hand-in-hand with karma.

Wow. That's interesting, cool, and far out.

Did you have a sense of ego during that breif second?

And so much for needing to get up from the sofa if the remote control is out of reach. Lazyness - the mother of all invention. [Wink]

Dimensions are usualy called space and time dimensions as to signify what they are.
You could have a dimension for everything you could think of, but that might not be very purposeful.
38  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Question for Beavis... on: January 04, 2004, 17:22:01
I wonder about that. Concider Aristoeles' explanation for why the Earth, an immense rock floating in emptyness, does not fall. Aristoteles said that if the distance above is infinte and the distance below is infinite, then Earth is in balance between the two and does not fall.
One could mutate this into saying the Earth really is falling, but it does not matter since everything else is falling too, and there's an infinite amount of distance availible to fall.

This functions as to show that your razor has two edges, and that a finite density reqires a definition that makes it the more complex explanation of the two. [^]
After all, a brane of infinite density could very well host waves of finite size. It could, in theory, host waves of any size at all.

You meant at the same time as you hear it? O.o

...Guess that's an objective observation of something from the astral plane. =)

The only way I know of overcoming the trouble it gives you is waiting for your mind to lean how to interpret it properly. I have however not researched the matter, so there are probably other ways to do it.
40  Spiritual Evolution / Welcome to Spiritual Evolution! / are deities thought forms? on: January 04, 2004, 14:25:42
This topic could suit well under Magic, but that's not for me to decide. I will however look at this from that perspective.

A thought form can have its origin in a powered sigil, and with time and attention it grows. It can become self-aware and have a free will. I don't see how it is much different than us, except it does not have a physical body. In that sense Lighthouse is correct. I would however like to say that each and every one of us has the power of God burning at the core of our beings. In fact, that part of us is God.
Who is then to say that we, as humans, do not have the power to create as God?

I've been playing with the thought of evoking (bringing out) myself, changing the evoked me as if it was a though form, and then invoking (bringing in) the changed me.
Doing this brings about some very core questions about the nature of our beings. What is "I" if the very way I think is changed? What decided the changes I made to myself, and how does this change effect future changes I make to myself? Do I actually have control, or am I just reacting to an immutable path of logic?
Focusing all this time and attention to myself, at what point do I become a deity? Could existing deities at one point have had physical bodies?
41  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Loud snaps on: January 04, 2004, 11:20:38
I hear it too. One time it sounded like a guitar string getting plucked, and another time just an immense 'noise' like I had my head in a jet engine.

The strobo light comes from your third eye chakra.

AFAIK, the noise is the effect of astral 'input' that your brain doesn't know how to handle, so it decides to startle you with noise, just to be on the safe side.
42  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Question for Beavis... on: January 04, 2004, 10:12:06
Quite some time ago I imagined points in space of infinite density. These points could be given a 'charge' of energy, either 0 or 1. The density of charged points dictated mass. In a similar fashion as in your theory, the mass could move as a wave. I knew the points had to interact with each other in some way for the charge of energy to be transfered, but I never theorized how that would be possible.

Now that I think I have understood your theory, I can see how it can be united with mine, and both of our's can be unied with something that the pros have come up with: M-brane theory.

I have no idea how I could have seen past it before: infinitely dense points in space = brane.
Your negative and positive charges = the peaks and valleys of waves propagating through a brane.

This could further be combined with the theories of a holographic universe. - The waves propagating through the branes are inferense patterns that we interprit as spacetime.

This theory basically erases the line between information and energy. In other words it suits our purpose perfectly. =)

I've known for some time that energy and information are not different, but all the theories I have make up a hulking mass that requires me to basically enter a light meditative state to contemplate. I've seen information and energy being the same from a macrocosmic perspective, and this is strictly microcosmic. Until now it didn't occur to me how to go about uniting the two. - As above so below indeed. [Smiley]
43  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / Question for Beavis... on: January 03, 2004, 21:31:36
I do have a few theories, and I think I recognize some ideas in your's. But it's late here and I really must go to bed. - I'll sleep on it and reply tomorrow. [Smiley]

I'm rather interested in your model of physics. Could you please describe it?
45  Integral Philosophy / Welcome to Integral Philosophy! / Anything is possible? on: January 02, 2004, 21:59:11
Anything is possible, just of varying degree of likelyhood.

In some states of mind, this is something that you simply know and take for graned.
46  Energy Body and The Chakras / Welcome to Energy Body and The Chakras / What Is It That I'm Doing? on: January 02, 2004, 21:52:06
Blackness tends to be the lack of sensory input. My guess is, and only a guess it is, that your physical vision gave way to a psychic one that has not developed yet.
(And once again I must remind you that I just made this up. - Just guessing.)

Another explanation might be that the nicotine caused the veins in your brain to contract so much that you got tunnel vision.
- Smoking is bad for your health.
47  Metaphysics / Welcome to Metaphysics! / What's the total energy of everything that exists? on: January 02, 2004, 19:03:31
"I think, therefore I am"
- Descartes

Should have been "I'm aware, therefore I am."
We are aware of the universe around us, and therefore it too Is.
If our minds and bodies were of a different origin than that of our universe, then this could be doubted, but we are aware of our minds and bodies in the same fashion that we are aware of the universe.

I've been reading a bit about Tesla's theories too, and I think that what he was playing with was an unified theory for electromagnetism and gravity.
The tricky part is figuring out just how it works. [Tongue]

These links you posted look very interesting. Do you have more of them? [Wink]
49  Astral Chat / Welcome to Astral Chat! / FORUM INTRUSION on: January 01, 2004, 20:38:26
Please, Avalon, call it cracking and not hacking. There's a great deal of law-abiding white hat hackers out there that simply pop a vein when they're associated with common criminals. =/
That, or at least put "black hat" in front of it.
Sorry if I seems like I'm making a chicken out of a feather, but please do try to see it from my point of view. I take it you are not very fond of witch hunts, and the hacking community isn't either. Regardless of intention, the moment one is caught for the slightest oversight, say a kid trying to impress his friends and running a canned exploit against a comercial website, he's given a completely improportional sentence for it and fines to match. His intention was not to harm, but to show off. What he needs is guidance and not punishment. Certainly, the industry has got SCADAs with old versions of NT running critically important functions to society. Same skritpkiddiot could have targeted that machine, but didn't. Also, are not these companies responsible for making sure their systems are hardened?
On the other side of the situation, the hardcore black hat that eats assembler code for lunch; he's already planted a home made rootkit on said internet computers you use. Your only way to keep him away from your classified data is to physically sever the connection between the nets. And you're not going to catch him either once you notice what he's doing. =/
You probably know about the actual incident more than I do. How many years was it that the FBI had been spied on again?

And sorry about the rant too. The situation just pisses me off.
