The Mirage of a Dead End and The Physics of Energetic Information




The Illusions of A Dead End
The alternative universe has long begged for a multi-disciplinary study as an antidote to the weaknesses of human psychology in the face of fantasies, commerce and social politics.
Complexity within the analysis of the subject is seen as a poison.
Physics, psychology and cybernetics in terms of analysis have been erased as tools in order to gain a deeper understanding of this phenomenon outside of the purview of a proverbial comic book.
In the 21st Century, the study of UAP and other associated enigmas remain in the territory of mythologies, treated as a liminal subject and consequently it has been invaded by a raft of snake oil salesmen afloat on a sea of paranoiac projections. The materialism of our Western society has had an enormous impact on the psychology of consensus realities as to the approach to the subject and consequently it is a anathema, or alternatively it has been categorized within the box of strict physicality as to its nature. One result is the lunacy of Ancient Aliens projected upon archaeology.
This environment of materialism is the crux of a dilemma wherein the social milieu treatment of the subject has reached a dead end to the extent it is recycling itself and is prone to self parody despite the reality that our conceptual models of reality are being upended daily by quantum physics.
The importance of the potential discoveries marked by the “paranormal” is enormous while the ridicule and denial surrounding the mention of the subject as a defensive measure remains firmly lodged in place and so it is no surprise it has become locked in the exploitation of a category best described as entertainment.
Psychology, cybernetics, physics within the traditional largely remain silent on the subject as a result.
This essay asks a deceptively simple question concerning the effect of cultural materialism on the subject of strange phenomenon in the atmosphere and the resulting fantasies of physicality. Does physicality require a redefinition?

The Ordering of Experience
At the core of experiential reality, we are not fearful, aggressive, desirous, ecstatic, sorrowful or any number of variables as reactive modalities as pitches and notes as a soundtrack that underpins thought as a player piano programmed by an obscure form of consensus, of which Alan Watts said that “We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.”
What does this have to do with anomalous experience?
Borrowers, mimics, pantomimes...are behaviors placed within a descriptive context of consensus as a defining metric and that if this molding of reality is seen from without, we are within as mirrored surface created by absorption and inside this process we are engulfed within and simultaneously, by processing this ordering twenty four hours a day and even in sleep, relentlessly our minds seek order as a driver of self awareness. At any cost.
Thought, the ordering process is a form of math with equations, calculations triangulation's that are self organizing while also simultaneously they are created from our own stored data in memory as Alan Watt’s described them as borrowed as well as thought that defines a calculus of cartography is incomplete.
What lies in causation between A and B in thought is not allowed in direct processing which is simultaneous as we do not think or choose beforehand what we think.
In hindsight we can re-digest and reorder causation by superimposing on repeatability and language, which, in this sense is a stereotype that creates order relentlessly built upon pre-established rules on the unordered, unpredictable, the chaotic. Now we view an image of ordering within the anomalous. What does this image tell us in regard to ordering? Do these human sculpted metaphors resemble the ordering metaphors experienced in UAP encounters? These statues of the imaginal realm as projections could easily be a pattern on which descriptions of "extraterrestrials" are based. Ordering chaos as a projection of image in a quantum reality.




The Metaphor of The Anomalous
In dream states we navigate ordering by metaphor, and it appears that what is experienced through the anomalous is also a metaphor produced by ordering. This ordering is created by thought which relies on language as a math, which is self organising.
A metaphor is a that identifies something as being the same as some unrelated thing for analytic comparisons, thus highlighting the similarities between the two. While a simile compares two items, a metaphor compares or directly equates them, and so a metaphor does not necessarily apply any distancing words of comparisons as qualifiers such as "like" or "as".
A metaphor is a type of analogy of ordering of relationships and is closely related to other processes through language as an ordering principle which achieve their effects via association, comparison or resemblance - including allegory, hyperbole, and simile. Consider the above image as a metaphor created by the architecture of autonomic processing imposing order. A spaceship is a metaphor for a vehicle that traverses space and this definition of a relationship does not necessarily denote physicality rather a relationship of metrics we have created by ordering. yet there is a distinction behind causation undefined.

The Metaphor of Physicality As A Metric
In the last essay I addressed causation as being a conceptual model that has been reversed and has, as a result, created what are known in science as “hard” problems based on physicality as the origin of reality whereas energetic information creates physicality whose self organisation creates physicality depending on the environment as an attractor to which it adapts. We see this in our own planetary ecology of living systems. The mind is equally an attractor as a center of gravity that in turn, superimposes ordering according to its inner ecology. Rightly or wrongly this seems apparent to me. The anomalous, not surprisingly, falls into this same trap of reversed causation. We place it as a physicality in origin and then attempt to solve the “hard “ problem of causation, yet physicality in the universe is by it’s own nature temporal. It is not fixed, it is in flux much like the anomalous. My peers ignore the fact that Einstein said nearly a century ago that physicality is an illusion, therefore our ordering does not equate physicality itself as a metaphor.

The Illusion of Linearity
Our language as a math to order reality is based on linearity and by it’s effect as thought not being self aware as a constant in terms of superimposing order on the non linear. Space as a dimensional quality is ordered by causation by time, another illusion of causation that it is moving forward as this is dictated by our sensory systems dictating our language and thoughts by appearances as referents and referents create linear time which does not exist. A body in space creates a gravitational field as a metaphor of self organisation that is in defiance of linearity whereas without our processing architecture perhaps we could envision ourselves as metaphors of planetary bodies that bend space or what we term time. Therefore another aspect of what we term anomalous is in reality, the real, versus our cognisance, which is not.

A New Model of The Universe
For this writer, what the anomalous portrays is a reality yet to be explored as a new model of the universe. Due to all of the above, instead of recognition, we have mythologies as to avoid uncertainty. Anthropomorphic projections of illusions as realities being metaphors of ordering that has been placed in either a reversed or illusionary model of causation.

The Mirage of A Dead End and The Physics of Energetic Information


The Illusions of A Dead End
The alternative universe has long begged for a multi-disciplinary study as an antidote to the weaknesses of human psychology in the face of fantasies, commerce and social politics. The subject in it's treatment of society considers complexity as a poison. Why has cybernetics, physics and psychology been ignored as having an insight to anomalous experience?
In the 21st Century, the study of UAP and other associated enigmas remain in the purview of mythologies, treated as a liminal subject and consequently it has been invaded by a raft of snake oil salesmen afloat on a sea of paranoiac projections.

The Coherence of Chaos





“An engineer observing a computer would want to look at the back and open up the boxes. He would want to take a probe and examine the different parts of the computer. But there is another way of looking at it; the way of the programmer, who wants to sit in front of the computer and analyze what it does, not how it does it. That's my approach. I want to ask it questions and see what answers I get. I want to interact with it as an information entity.” - Jacques Vallee

Can we derive a simple definition of the paranormal and anomalous? Perhaps put simply, these chimeras of the senses are observable phenomenon that are lodged between coherence and chaos. Language is coherent by necessity, while the natural world and it’s origins remain chaotic and incoherent in theory and so when the anomalous is confronted with rationality it is no surprise to us that both logic and the illogical become surrealistic as equivalences of one another as it becomes very apparent a primary and very fundamental conceptual model of causation is missing.
It may be that this is due to our inner nature and it’s causation remains an equal enigma and so the historical world of physicality that we cannot frame in language as to it's origin are equally lodged between the coherence of objectification and the subjectivity that is apparent when the chaotic caricatures a stable state of behavior, much like our own behavior.
 One mirror reflects the other. Self referential definitions and behavior.
Yet buried in our view of chaos as opposed to coherence within the study of the anomalous is a interdependence that suggests an unnamed  Janus face or two sides of the same coin. The image and the reversed reflection in self awareness.

"Whole and unity; thing or entity or being. Every whole is a unity and every unity that is divisible is a whole. For example, the primitive concepts, the monads, the empty set, and the unit sets are unities but not wholes. Every unity is something and not nothing. Any unity is a thing or an entity or a being. Objects and concepts are unities and beings. "-Godel

Going deeper into this concept of a pattern that synthesizes a common bond between paradox in the paranormal and the predictive, Ibn Al Arabi suggests a reality that "possesses such utter nondelimitation that it is not delimited by nondelimitation."
What might "reality" that be that quantum physics follows on the footsteps of metaphysics?

It seems that if we compare fruitful results as well as the many facets of the anomalous as a active study, physics and in particular, quantum physics has left the forlorn Ufology far behind...It seems to have descended into self referencing babble while physics has sent out more explorers of merit.



Einstein parallels the nature of the mind being intrinsically folded within both the hardware and software  of the environment when he observed that "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness."

A strange separation of the mind from the nature which produced it has occurred.

Hidden in this circuitous labyrinth of delusions mistaken for certainties is a taboo that John C Lilly accurately described as being present both in the positivists and in the skeptical, the believers and the atheistic in what RA Wilson called reality tunnels.The objectification of imagination creating a divide between mind and nature....based on reversed causation has placed itself into a non existent box, an imaginary island.

“ In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true is true or becomes true, within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the mind, there are no limits... In the province of connected minds, what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true within certain limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended. In the network's mind there are no limits.”
- The Human Biocomputer (1974)

The network he refers to is a field of energetic information as the root of physicality and yet our models of causation begin with physicality as the root of information, as if a potato could create itself. Something is missing with our conceptual models of causation, which Phillip K Dick involuntarily ventured into...

“We hypostatize information into objects. Rearrangement of objects is change in the content of the information; the message has changed. This is a language which we have lost the ability to read. We ourselves are a part of this language; changes in us are changes in the content of the information. We ourselves are information-rich; information enters us, is processed and is then projected outward once more, now in an altered form. We are not aware that we are doing this, that in fact this is all we are doing”
― Philip K. Dick, VALIS

In this context, one could say in relation to popular cultures adverse reaction to the contradictions between rational logic underwritten by materialism versus the seeming chaotic and unpredictable fear of uncertainty and the unpredictable in the para-normal is defended by an equal reactive mixture of defensive ridicule underlined by fantasies, it is advisable that it is "better do nothing than to be busy doing nothing"

Our culture cannot discern the relationship between software and hardware. Physicality and self organizing energy as a divide created by reverse causation as a conceptual model of effects.

‘But the bits and pieces of mind which appear before consciousness invariably give a false picture of mind as a whole. The systemic character of mind is never there depicted, because the sampling is governed by purpose. We never see in consciousness that the mind is like an ecosystem – a self-corrective network of circuits. We only see arcs of these circuits.
And the instinctive vulgarity of scientists consists precisely in mistaking these arcs for the larger truth, i.e., thinking that because what is seen by consciousness has one character, the total mind must have the same character.
Freud’s personified ‘ego’, ‘id’, ‘super-ego’ are, in fact not, truly personified at all. Each of his components is constructed in the image of only consciousness (even though the component may be unconscious) and the ‘consciousness’ does not resemble a total person. The isolated consciousness is necessarily depersonified.
The whole iceberg does not have those characteristics which could be guessed at from looking only at what is above water. I mean: the iceberg does – mind does not. Mind is not like an iceberg.’ [Bateson, 1967]

One can say the same about our definition of reality based on physicality as a primacy of causation relates to our own conceptual model of what we may be. One hand washes the other. The physical defines the non material in error.

We return to the paranormal and might have a glimmer of it’s nature which is the true nature of the universe and we observe experiential reality in an upside down manner. The relationship between physicality and energy as information that we process and how we process it is amply illustrated by the nature of nature in relationship to the mind working incoherently as assuming physicality as a primacy. Physicality is an effect not a cause and while physicality creates effects we can perhaps say that over and over again, seeing is not believing This applies directly to the anomalous as well as to my peers. A wave comes before a molecule.

.“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” ― Albert Einstein

I began this essay by quoting Jacques Vallee’s discernment concerning the relationship between software and hardware, consciousness and physicality in relation to UAP, and his concept of a control system. He continues to add qualifiers to this concept….

“We're assuming that there is a feedback mechanism involved in the operations of the control system; if you change the information that's carried back to that system, you might be able to infiltrate it through its own feedback.”

I am suggesting that there are no manipulators behind this matrix other than the human observer and many years ago suggesting any change or distinction of form between the observer and the observed in this context has our fingerprints all over it.
We are the creators of extraterrestrials, the demons, the men in black, the crop circle in our compendium but not through our fantasies but rather in nature as bringing our organisational nature as a superimposition of faceted programs in the relationship of anticipation, intention, identification, associations, emotions and the directed energy of attention that make illustrations from waves to a physicality that demonstrates the primacy of energetic information as a causation in relationship through a spectrum of physicality.
It is ourselves that are paranormal and see causation in a reversed and upside down modality that answers the Zen like question I asked myself some time ago…...How can nature be unnatural?
It is not. Our minds are unnatural in how we conceive “reality”


The chaotic nature of the anomalous is a signet of inability to conceive of it's coherence.

Emotional States and Attention As Directed Energy




"Turing, in Proc. Lond. Math. Soc. 42 (1936), p. 250, gives an argument which is supposed to show that mental procedures cannot carry any farther than mechanical procedures. However, this argument is inconclusive, because it depends on the supposition that that a finite mind is capable of only a finite number of distinguishable states. What Turing disregards completely is the fact that mind, in its use, is not static, but constantly developing. … Therefore, although at each stage of the mind’s development the number of its possible states is finite, there is no reason why this number should not converge to infinity in the course of its development. Now there may exist systematic methods of accelerating, specializing, and uniquely determining this development, e.g. by asking the right questions on the basis of a mechanical procedure. But it must be admitted that the precise definition of a procedure of this kind would require a substantial deepening of our understanding of the basic operations of the mind. " -Kurt Godel


Can we theoretically unite physics and psychology as an equation to study the anomalous?

Several days ago, I responded to a post over at The Nightshirt, Eric Wargo's provocative blog. The subject was synchronicity and we got into a dialog about emotional states as carrier waves as he had linked to a post of mine in relation to that more profound form of coincidence.
I had brought up the strange series of incidents leading up to the fire which consumed our house and in particular our emotional state in relation to a series of events such as my precognitive dream, our negative attitudes directed at the house, as well as several other milder forms of synchronicity that followed that conflagration. In hindsight it seems the fire was a form of twisted wish fulfillment.

High emotional states or even more mild variations appear to be entangled in information exchanges of the anomalous kind and it occurred to me there was a missing link in this, which is the fact that attention is a form of directed energy. Emotional states according to their strength or focus are are a form of directed attention that focus on relationships of information that may create an observer effect that appears to come from without as it is experienced from within, while it seems it's both, neither here nor there in what some time ago, I called the "third state" which also relates to the strangeness that information fields can express themselves physically.


Anticipation....and intention wrapped up with a bow that is our emotional state seems to form a multiplex of signals in a interdependent relationship with energy as information focused by attention.
What do I mean by attention as directed energy?
You go to your local store and buy a seedling with the intent to grow it into a plant. Your anticipation is that it will bloom. Your attention is focused on making this happen. If you dont direct attention to the plant, nothing happens. All of this is based on information exchanges of a more positive emotional state. As I said in the last post, it seems information has a life of it's own and we are it's carriers as well as being part of it's entire field and yet we definitely have physicality.

I looked back on all this in relation to John Dee and his purported invocations of "angels" and as Erick pointed out, the role of ritual as a focusing tool. What seems primitive as PD Ouspensky pointed out may actually be sophisticated. However this has a warning label attached to it that falls under the purview of one of my favorite theoretical physicists, who famously took apart predictability as a ruling projection toward the universe. File this under unintended consequences.
The old bromide of being careful what you focus on may apply in terms of this matrix of forces..intent, anticipation, emotions and attention.

We see this demonstrated in others all the time however I think there is a strange parallel in the anomalous. Its difficult to have a state of self awareness where we can observe these forces in ourselves which was one of the observations of GI Gurdjieff. Its difficult to chew gum and walk at the same time.
In have said before, that this blog was never intended to be an encyclopedia as the presumption on my part was to provoke self directed explorations of these odd topics. The assumption is that you the reader has the wherewithal to go further in these areas if you chose to or already are a carrier of information already in regard to them.

That being said, do we have a good example of this? So I asked myself and one name stood out, one that is very familiar to me due to my age that may be unfamiliar to younger readers.
Ted Serios..the creator of images projected upon film. In Ted we have all the ingredients I have mentioned...a high emotional state he achieved with a large supply of alcohol, attention as directed energy, anticipation as related to intention, The results?


One could say Ted was a fraud, a bellhop who somehow managed to invent a seemingly useless application of technology whose only purpose was to deceive science and this may be true. However it's value as an illustrating principle rather than a provable fact has everything to do with the nature of theory and uncertainty whenever we place a rigid architecture on what is patently fluid, meaning the truth in the eyes of an observer.

I seem to be on a approach on these subjects and to what end... have no clue and yet my own healthy self skepticism fortunately keeps me from diving off the deep end. There is undoubtedly however something afoot behind physicality that stubbornly resists sitting still long enough to have its picture taken....or maybe it has been captured in the image above. Does this represent the sum of the equation between psychology and physics?

You may or may not decide on a menu choice in this proverbial restaurant, all I can do is hand you my menu. It may be delicious or it may give you indigestion or as a Taoist would say, it may give you both. One aspect of this is clear, one of the aims of our transience may be to expand our menu choices here without becoming obsessed over one versus another. That would seem to be an automatism to avoid while for others it is an addiction as belief. Discernment is a hard won attribute that has to be paid for and it pays our bill at this corner bar and grill as a credit card plied against debits.

At the same time, we seem to be surrounded by this enfoldment of starnge actions at a distance through our own states that are mirrored by the anomalous  and the anomalous may prove to have our fingerprints on it's provocative evidence. If this is so, the proverbial shifting of phase between a field of information and our own containment as a carrier of it, of which we are deeply immersed in, may be in a relationship we have yet to recognize. Between our inner universe and our environment may be a third state of affairs that has the potential of being triangulated.

And of course discernment is subject to contingencies. One aspect being contingent upon another with no apparent right angles of direct observation allowed when it comes to the anomalous. All we are privy to is effects.
Attention as directed energy, requiring an emotional carrier wave focused with the anticipations attached to intention may be an equation that proves useful. Or, it may be wadded up and best consigned to a waste basket.
Time provides the answers often enough when we do not receive immediate gratification such as putting the answer before the question.


Joint Intention As Attention Experiment

An live experiment for you and your significant other or a friend to participate in. The overall results should be interesting, courtesy of the ever inventive Rubert Sheldrake, the bane of materialist science. It was forty years ago I read in some long forgotten book that attention is energy, and that will be the subject of my next post.

Beyond Physicalism

This is as good as an example of synchronicity that rears up in my life as this was the subject of a short essay I published yesterday on the physicality of anomalous events being a phase shift between states as well as bringing up the subject of physics at Rich's venue on the subject of phenomenology. And so what should appear on my Facebook page? A fascinating interview is contained therein that I thought Id share with other curious minds who are trying to peer inside the projection booth.

Ask a Parapsychologist

A new blog on science and parapsychology that has yet to be fully implemented might be of some interest to readers and so I pass this link along to you from John Kruth who is the Executive Director of The Rhine Research Center who many of you might already be aware of as pioneering a scientific approach to the strange.
 It will be interesting to see how it develops especially in countering the nonsense in the popular mainstream media. Its interesting to note the evolution of babble presented as fact in the overall commercialization of the many facets within this field seemingly culminating in the latest exercise in mass hypnosis to be held in Mexico City regarding the infamous Kodak Slides....
 In Ufology, the subject was smeared and discredited by it's own advocates outside of science. In our time, it is the mainstream media that has made the subject a joke without a punchline. Vortexes, Demons and Ancient Aliens proliferate in the plot lines of comic books for the imagination. 
I wish Mr Kruth the best of good wishes for a daunting task he has set himself.

https://tunsasays.wordpress.com/

Also, I failed to add this is a direct feedback process which sets it apart from the usual fare as the content addresses equally direct, personal questions. I am going to relate my own recent experiences to see what Mr Kruth has to say. It should prove interesting

The Physicality of Energetic Information and UAP






An Anomalous Physicality of Information
Does information have a life of its own beyond our being lodged between chaos and coherence?
I am beginning to strongly suspect that it does and the sort of frozen warnings or vague implications that anneal themselves to each other are suggesting this. In effect , information has a physicality that is yes, oblique to observe, but seems to have an interdependent axis of all points leading to a probe of such magnitude that it’s mind boggling to ruminate on this living creature without having to obey linear time constraints….It more resembles a creative art in search of itself through as many parallels in dimension and expression as manifested through our narrow tunnel of perception. Yes, I am still on it’s track and this game is afoot. We seem to be expressions of this probing by an aggregate sum whose identity is incommensurable. Play rather than aim seems to be a chief feature of this processing toward a self awareness as if the universes were waking up to self awareness by demonstrated by interactions of a “paranormal” sort….that can overrun spacetime and express a coherence we have yet to name.  We are both “it” and not” it” in terms of similarities as if experiential reality is a phasing of physicality that relies on this sort of unnamed feedback whether it is precognition, non existent objectifications seen in the atmosphere, or the pervasiveness of non material thought itself as our conveyance through a transit of physicality.
One could say this unfathomable life of energetic information seems to have within it’s transit a learning curve that is evolving that has a butterfly effect on our own evolution. I suppose you could say I am one genome or containment field of information that has physicality as a phase shift….within a odd proverbial double helix that is both material and non-material  and that applying any dualism to this is beside the point….


The Most Basic of Questions
The simplest questions have the most complicated answers and are likely to be the most profound. Asking basic, even simplistic questions leads down a path of fractal branches that seemingly grow together to form a sphere whose circumference remains an indelible enigma.
With this rumination in mind, I asked myself why is the physical aspect of reality necessary?
If we peer underneath the hard surfaces of what constitutes either our kitchen table or our family pets and even ourselves, we find a proverbial weaving of energy exchanges, transmutations or storage of substances, regulatory and sensory systems and so  to what end?
Is the physical world and transient intermediary, a phasing of state and if so, especially if this path of temporal physicality arising from the non physical is fated to return to it’s original state, why is this phase so seemingly crucial as a detour?
Or is “detour” as a descriptive word completely inaccurate? I think on the Butterfly Effect in relation to all of the above and the relationship of biology to quantum mechanics as conjectured upon by theoretical physicist Brian Josephson especially a paper entitled “Biological Utilisation of Quantum Nonlocality” It sounds daunting to absorb but with some patience, there is a lot of material to extrapolate upon. He is a very grounded advocate for the study of the paranormal as a theoretical physicist based in Cambridge.


Many Worlds In One
We exist for a variable amount of “time” as an integral process that spans as an active player several parallel universes. No given universe can exist independently. Whether it is the molecular universe, the mineral universe, or any number of states interwoven into the screen that seem as one dimension, and yet all of them writhe, wither and recombine in search of relationships to create what has not yet been formed and each lacks a model or mold of any fated end game beyond their given state. Each requires an isthmus of passage from one state to another as well acting as proverbial bridges in a interstatial flux. This flux seemingly constitutes the confusing universe of what is commonly called the paranormal or what lies between A and B. In this lately, I have been thinking on one of the chief characteristics of UAP which is the relationship between localised high energy fields and dimensional distortions of spacetime and it’s effect on our biology of perception. Has a something breached dimensional boundaries as an intention within the context of sampling our own in a variety of ways...yes, its an abstracted rumination that smacks of anthropomorphism, but I am in no position to discount this possibility. UAP appears to be a physical expression of energetic information.


Transfiguration
Clear and cogent demarcations between states appears to be a matter of orientation and a relativity of measurement ….the perspective gained from whence one is observing. One could say my suspicion is that various states ( dimensional spacetime as a carrier of energetic information are not subject to boundaries and that these various states and parallel realities that are , in turn, subject to various convergences as physicalities could be compared to a spectrum of light as it is observed. In this sense the anomalous is neither red or orange but rather a phenomenon that is both an unknown state subject to flux and one dependant on the observer as aanother “bridge” or isthmus of transit that creates effects, either retrocausal or  In this sense, one could say the anomalous is a co-creation. Again I keep going back to that damned Butterfly Effect as having some import or intention that I can intuitively sense but cannot pin down. I suppose if energy is information UAP is a communication without an appropriate translation.


Containers and A Clear Liquid
Unfortunately a description is not what is described and the gulf between the two seems to widen daily however it does open up those spaces between A and B as causal observations that give hope to the aim of discerning an ontology to them. There is something incommensurable that I equate with the transcendence of our self referencing triangulation's of what we cannot directly observe. Something vast lurks there. I feel it in my bones. Its not as if it’s neither a carrot or a stick but something beyond us that is signalling through our distortions that we have no comparative references to…..

Frozen Warnings



In the face of the obscene, explicit malice of the jungle, which lacks only dinosaurs as punctuation, I feel like a half-finished, poorly expressed sentence in a cheap novel.”
― Werner Herzog

Ruminations On Ruins and Preserving The Past
My story begins with the decision to downsize our lifestyle and as a result of this planned transition, I had gathered, among many household items, my large collection of books into our garage in order to cull through them as to decide which ones to keep and which to donate to our local library.
In going through the many books during this process, I came across a biography of Richard Nickles, a Chicago preservationist who lost his life trying to save pieces of the Chicago Stock Exchange,when the building collapsed on top of him, burying him the rubble. 
I pulled the book out and brought it into the house and began to reread it, and consequently decided to use one of his photographs as a theme on my Facebook page. Here is the photograph. A few days later, this would prove to be an interesting choice in relation to what was about to occur. Inset into "theme" photograph, I placed a photograph of myself taken in our kitchen with the roof and skylights of our house illuminating this portrait. It remains as I write this on my page. My motive for doing so was based on the subject of loss, specifically the loss of the record of a physical history that accompanies memory.



A Failure Alert
The following day, I set about completing various tasks I had set myself to accomplish several days earlier. One of them was the replacement of a battery in a smoke detector outside of my daughters room that had been chirping to alert us to the need to change it. I also went into my daughters room located above our garage to check that detector just as a safety precaution. These smoke detectors, as some of you know chirp about every minute or so in this alert process. I spent several minutes there and hearing nothing, I moved on to other tasks. This room was to vanish completely in what was to follow.

An Overwhelming Task
Later in the day, our neighbor stopped my wife, to tell her that a smoke detector was "chirping" in my daughter's room which faced their house. I thought to myself, how odd that was just having done the earlier routine of checking them. I rechecked her room above the garage and the detector seemed just fine.I put rechecking it on my list of things to do the following day.
That afternoon my wife and this neighbor had a long conversation regarding downsizing and my wife proceeded to explain how overwhelming this process was and she had the same conversation later that evening with my sister, which also included repairs beyond simply getting rid of things. These tasks seemed nearly impossible to accomplish when taking in their sum total.

A Reappearance and A Loss
I fell asleep that night and found myself in a room whose outlines were blurry and across from me was my son who had passed away some five or so years ago. I was overjoyed to see him again and expressed this to him in a ongoing set of soliloquies. There was no doubt it was Matt. He said nothing but looked into my eyes with a sort of focused stare. I suppose I did not let him get a word in edgewise. I awoke saddened and after wrestling with my thoughts and some tossing and turning, I fell back asleep only to find myself in a room whose outlines were vague and this dream began in midstream as if I had dropped into it while it had begun ..some time ago. I more or less jumped into myself while I was reacting to the recognition one of our pets had been killed, and the experience in this dream as well as immediately afterward, was extremely emotional and upsetting.

Fire and Erasure
It was around five in the afternoon and I was reading the Nickle book in the great room adjoining the kitchen when the power instantly went off. Everything went dead. I assumed something had happened at some distance with the power companies facilities. Five to eight minutes later all the smoke alarms went off. My neighbor was knocking furiously on my front door..these two events were simultaneous. Smoke began to drift through the house coming from the garage below my daughters room. I tried to enter but the flames and smoke were overwhelming. The house was burning down at a furious rate.

If you’re purely after facts, please buy yourself the phone directory of Manhattan. It has four million times correct facts. But it doesn’t illuminate.”
― Werner Herzog

Aftermath.
We lost Kiwi one of our cats and from time to time out of nowhere I would "lose it" thinking about her. All of our physical history was lost. All we have our memories. The ribs of the roof ( what remained of it ) resembled Nickle's photograph. Mathew's ashes were saved by some very brave firemen and that's was the focus of my daughter and myself as expressed to the firemen. The Facebook page of myself in my house within ruins as I mentioned earlier remains posted. Matthew's reappearance alongside my mourning in advance of Kiwi's death are indelibly lodged in my mind. A burden of dreams The overwhelming task that was so heavily discussed in regard to downsizing vanished in the fire in a matter of minutes. A dark mirror was placed before me. My daughters interview with the media encapsulates a shared feeling in the face of a nameless cruelty.

UNION COUNTY, N.C. -- A Union County family is looking for a new place to stay after their homes went up in flames Monday night. All their possessions are gone, but they weren't hurt and they saved the one possession that could never be replaced.
"I heard this really loud pop and then clank, clank, clank," said Kara Duensing.
Kara was inside her family home on Lowergate Lane, where only charred remains are left, and didn't know her house was on fire.
"Our neighbor across the street came and banged on our door and said your garage is on fire," said Duensing.
Kara and her parents quickly got their four dogs out, and one cat. They're still searching for two missing cats.. It wasn't until they got outside they realized their most irreplaceable possession was inside: her brother's urn.
"They asked if we had anything and at that time. I couldn't think but then we said, 'Oh my God, Matthew is in there,' and they brought him out," said Duensing.
Matthew passed away from an enlarged heart in 2009, at the age of 21. He was his sister's best friend.

The Ecology of Programmed Cycles of Human Self Exterminations



In previous essays on warfare, I wrote about the strangeness of cyclic mass extinctions that have no other causation outside of the human mind which is in contrast to the ecological balancing in relation to other species, and that it is a given that correspondingly, the cycles of these extinctions are internal, or inner-species in nature. In parallel to this unique cycling, we have the attributes of the human mind in comparison to other species in that it has qualities that others seemingly lack in spades.
There is a strange precision in these self harvesting cycles that reminds me of a clockwork which may indicate programming if we take this scenario further despite our own self defensive imagining that one hallmark of human consciousness is a greater spectrum of choice as derived by thought that weaves rationality into logic. The evidence suggests otherwise.
Along with the effects of thought is another chief feature which is tool making based essentially on mimicking nature by way of manipulating it in order to overcome it. Yet there is no device invented to derail the precision of these autonomic cycles which suggests again, there is a "war programming" software in the nature of consciousness we remain unaware of that utilizes specific triggers just as a timing mechanism controls the coordinated machinery of a a device.


In this sense perhaps man is a machine and it may be that our programming has a safety feature that relates to the overall planetary ecology in that our extreme creative adaptability by way of manipulating nature in order to overcome it, entails a equally pronounced rate of survival  in relation to procreating an unbalanced population that is unsustainable in terms of a fixed level of resources. Therefore this safety feature is triggered through a self harvesting cyclic programming that prevents overpopulation as the rate of extinction in these cycles as well as their extent seems to follow the growth of population.
If we go down this road further there seems to be a feedback situation lodged in these cycles that act as a trigger. Some have suggested this may be due to solar cycles and while the interconnections are provocative of entrainment on many  parallel levels, it lacks specificity in relation to neurology or any model of psychology it would produce. That is not to say it does not exist as a possible triggering feedback mechanism but our own nature in relation to our self image rebels at even a remote possibility of this being true



Philosophers love to debate and dissect what they term "free will" in relation to self awareness but then it is patently obvious by way of common sense, free will has a limit and this core concept I am relating to you puts a twist on how we define these limits in relation to autonomic cycles.
The earliest metaphor I am aware of is Martian in nature as it relates to martial matters.  Mars as the planetary representative of warfare as a "God" which relates to a ruling principle as to these cyclic events. The symbol of this metaphor represents a shield with a spear protruding from behind it's protective surface in many metaphysical texts and of course the physicality of Mars suggests that it was once a living planet and is now devoid of life and as our own natural resources shrink in relation to population growth, our tool making and the greater ability to self exterminate a greater population in relation to a cycle, etc...Mars has become a focal point of our explorations toward another planet, another world. While the Greeks reviled Mars, the Romans viewed this conceptual metaphor of behavior as a way to secure peace through war much like ourselves.


This conceptual model is repeated in Astrology which is also a cyclic concept of external influences that allegedly lessen "free will"   Mars, the God of War, is the ruler of Aries. In astrology, Mars is the planet of energy, action, and desire. It is the survival instinct, and can be thought of as the "leftover" animal nature of man.
Mars rules our animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. Our sexual desires come under the rule of Mars. Whereas Venus rules romantic attraction, Mars is most associated with basic body attraction. This is the planet of action rather than reaction. With Mars, there is no contemplation before action. The drive associated with Mars differs from that of the Sun in that it is self-assertion rather than assertion of the will; it is raw energy rather than creative energy.



This consideration of planetary talismans as augers to cyclic self harvesting programs may or may not be read as where the metaphors as signets of relationships reach an Omega point of a coming cycle or they may not.
One could say Mars may be a sublimated parable of human life on our own future as it relates to a dead planet, not literally, but in the sense of our own survival as a species, it may become dead as to sustaining the dynamics of population as well as other factors unless a X factor intercedes as again within a feedback loop announcing a larger self harvesting cycle to come. Under the thrall of biology attenuated by language and the imagination formed into thought, it may be that all roads lead to Rome, however difficult a price an agnosticism toward such an imprinting may cost, it seems this is the only exit available to us.


“Men are born soft and supple; dead they are stiff and hard. Plants are born tender and pliant; dead, they are brittle and dry. Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible is a disciple of death. Whoever is soft and yielding is a disciple of life. The hard and stiff will be broken. The soft and supple will prevail.”

The Third Man Factor




"For a parallel to the lesson of atomic theory regarding the limited applicability of such customary idealizations, we must in fact turn to quite other branches of science, such as psychology, or even to that kind of epistemological problems with which already thinkers like Buddha and Lao Tzu have been confronted, when trying to harmonize our position as spectators and actors in the great drama of existence."

-Niels Bohr


The Eye of Centripetal Entrapment


The encapsulation of the mind in relation to a vast field of information that surrounds it and informs it by largely reference points of physicality, is considered here in terms of other reference points that have no visibility in the sense of physicality but exist and inform in ways that defy rationality.
In our daily lives our minds are abuzz with outwardly directed activities which are multi-tasking in nature toward the present and the future, with a corresponding lack of space to direct ourselves toward our past history. The engagement or entanglement on a variety of fronts with these errands consumes our analysing abilities all of which are directed to a multitude of relationships that are proverbially an expression of perpetual motion in action. One could say this whirlwind of directed consciousness is keyed to the self to the extent it forms an expression of tunnel vision or to use an analogy, it forms a membrane or moat around a field of information and most importantly, it is framed in sequential, sidereal time. A follows B in relation to C and then of course there is the unanticipated that we must analyse and adjust these behavioral acts of awareness toward. Another consideration is that we are social animals and a component of this whirlwind are the others in our lives that perform in a feedback process, exchanging information, varying perspectives and opinions become engaged in this situational orientation of constant stimulation's from without.

If this were not complex enough we carry and process all this through the tonality of emotions that act as carrier waves to others as a viral phenomenon as the old saying goes, it’s not what you say, but how you say it that makes an impression. As my old friend Larry Berg would say, modality precedes communication in this situational entanglement of processing our orientation like a boulder rolling down an endless hill at a high rate of speed. We exist in a multitasking and outwardly directed cocoon so to speak.


The What If

This is where I insert a “what if” situation and removed you physically from your predictable environment, isolated you from all others, gave you a single task that your continued existence depended upon, and made all of this virtually impossible to cope with in any real manner?
Whether it is mountain climbing, arctic exploration, solo sailing across the oceans, being irrecoverably lost in a featureless plain, losing your sense of time by losing your references to it’s passing….your mind would become focused in an extraordinarily single minded contest that narrows your field of stimulation to nearly non existence, yet…..you must continue or perish.
All of this is further narrowed..into a slit which arrives with your being on death’s doorstep and your efforts are failing and your level of physiological stress is unprecedented...has no comparison and you are failing, psychologically, physically and in effect..are dying and you are keenly aware of this as a focal triangulation of irrecoverable loss.
Now we add another another situational factor, this one comes from without as an unseen companion to your situation, either sensed, seen, or heard or all three. This sentience can present itself as a dead relative, or associate, or be entirely anonymous..unknown to you that provides you with information or assistance that is essentially unknown to you and yet accurate, and assists you to the extent that you survive.
This is what is known as the Third Man Factor…and from a certain perspective it bears a kindred set of key features that fall closely into the realm of near death experiences, which initially drew my curiosity toward exploring this aspect of experiential anomalies within a spectrum.

Sidereal Versus Spacetime


If we step back from this experiential anomaly of unseen companions aiding one’s survival and consider physics, in particular that aspect that recognises that time is an illusion based on referencing and that there is no “now” in what is left, which is space, what we seem to find in these many, many cases, is information carried from a future state to the present by another who is also outside the boundaries of sidereal time, astonishingly enough from a state of what we term “death” So you have a dead companion in the present providing you with information from the future….or so it seems with an appropriate degree of wariness to this possibility that even more oddly can be confirmed by the act of survival allowed by the provision of this inexplicable information.


Whether it was an unseen pilot informing the lone navigator where to steer in relation to breaking waves that could not be seen in the pitch blackness of the ocean during a storm or the pilot being given specific bearings to follow to return to base when hopelessly lost….or the astronaut being counselled inside of a failing space station on fire...or the lost arctic explorers being lead by a party of apparitions urging them onward to following in their paths...so close as to shout out at them...


There are key situational characteristics which are precursors to this phenomenon which essentially are physical isolation from others, monotony and stress. And if one dwells on this aspect of these strange events, I think of the proposed and impossibly lengthy isolating trip to Mars...and the probability of something quite similar occurring during that voyage.


I highly recommend “The Third Man Factor” by John Geiger which is gripping, chilling and harrowing in its accounts as well as providing a multitude of theoretical explanations, of which , none completely suffice as potential explanations.

Close Encounters And Self Suggestion




"I don't believe that any human mind is capable of 100 percent error... Nobody is smart enough to be wrong all the time."  - Ken Wilbur


This post originated when a faint memory of the infamous Betty and Barney Hill incident wafted back through my mind and specifically the interesting detail of their  being lead to "the ship." They had no sensation of their feet being planted on the ground which suggested to me that this lack of somatic awareness resembles a dream...or was it something else entirely different and yet resembled one? Dreams of flying during a sleep cycle versus a subject being hypnotized to believe they are a chicken in a waking variant.  Is there an X factor submerged behind the common perception that all of this had a died in wool "reality" to it?
One could say both are altered states of perception from a normative waking state. 

"Certainly. I think it's an opportunity to learn something very fundamental about the universe because, not only is the phenomenon or technology capable of manipulating space and time in ways that we don't understand, it's manipulating the psychic environment of the witness."
Jacques Vallee

Consequently, I asked myself, can we take witness accounts at their face value or is something more complex being hinted at from a neurological and psychological perspective?

Recalling the common thread of a high energy field in relation to close encounters and the ill effects of it's radiation particularly the cases in South America wherein witnesses described being both freezing and having a high temperature. I asked a physician friend about what could cause such effects...She said dehydration as it relates to the body having a high internal temperature...common in severe cases of influenza foe example....which then lead me to think about heat energy  from an a localized field. Does a energy field cause neurological effects? 
All this made me think or imagine someone within a high energy field and reasonably perhaps conjecture this would have an isolating effect both electromagnetically as in brain functioning and processing and psychologically. I remembered the isolation tank experiments of the 1960's conducted by John C Lilly and the vivid hallucinations that occurred as a result.

"At lower levels of exposure, evidence for specific effects that may occur as a result of direct neural interactions with radio frequency fields is sparse. In addition, many of the studies that claim provocative results have yet to be replicated by independent laboratories. Other studies describe potential associations. For example, a recent report suggests that the low-intensity electromagnetic field of geomagnetic storms--disturbances in the earth¿s magnetic field caused by gusts of solar wind--may have a subtle but measurable influence on suicide incidence in women.
In recent years, cell phones, which transmit and receive at radio frequencies, have become ubiquitous. Researchers have investigated whether these low-intensity radio waves influence the central nervous system and cognitive performance. .."


http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/could-certain-frequencies/

Of course many are familiar with the electromagnetic experiments regarding direct brain stimulation carried on at Laurentian University by Dr Persinger and his "God Helmet" that created a definite impression of the so called "Third Man Factor" wherein an invisible presence of a non existent presence of another was induced.

"Electromagnetic fields, or electric shocks, have induced specific hallucinations in people. Those who are exposed to them, even in laboratory settings, have caused people to complain about a feeling of people following them, talking to them, or watching them. This is not always an uncomfortable sensation. Some people interpret this presence as a malevolent presence, especially if it's coupled with a feeling of unease, but others say they felt an inspiring or comforting presence. Ghost hunters will sometimes say the reverse - that ghosts cause a high electromagnetic field, or sometimes that a high electromagnetic field will allow ghosts to appear. Nobody is sure, yet, what these fields do to ghost brain DNA."

http://io9.com/5851828/10-things-an-electromagnetic-field-can-do-to-your-brain

Electromagnetic theories of brain functions abound although none are irrefutable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_theories_of_consciousness

When you boil all the aforementioned considerations down a question of suggestibility seems to connect them in relation to what was experienced. However, instead of someone waving a shiny object before their eyes perhaps there is a variant....self-suggestion.

Can we become convinced of the physicality of what has not been seen? Can we experience ghost images and forms that create ghost memories, that is, memories of what has been experienced without having three dimensional physicality? Certainly our conveyance of thought itself as I wrote about in the last post has no physicality and yet it is the lens through which we experience life. Thought suggests, imagines, and is full of stored data as associations, identifications, emotional trigger objects….an entire invisible ecology. 
Many indications exist that may indicate our normal waking state is a imaginative and suggestive one.

http://tarnsitsandstations.blogspot.com/2015/03/disambiguation-as-hypnosis.html

All of this is entrained to the environment as a codex of interpretation that is essentially subjective …...and going further down this road, in our dream cycles, these thoughts and their relationship between the outer world and the inner world become reversed, wherein the inside becomes the outside, full of experiential realities that have no physicality. Tying all this together is perhaps the principle of self suggestion and it's relationship to what we call "consciousness". Pavlov noticed this as well..

"Speech, on account of the whole preceding life of the adult, is connected up with all the internal and external stimuli which can reach the cortex, signaling all of them and replacing all of them, and therefore it can call forth all those reactions of the organism which are normally determined by the actual stimuli themselves. We can, therefore, regard ‘suggestion’ as the most simple form of a typical reflex in man"

In this post I ask..Does this situation lend itself toward an explanation of experiential memories tied to close encounters with a UAP field?

Going from an examination of the Jinn and their spectrum of appearances that are dependant on the environment in relation to the observer to the suggestive and normative state of consciousness, we return to the observer and examine the nature of a chief feature within UAP, which is a localised high energy field, which, if one encountered such a field, one might think that for the observer, it would be a profound source of attention, a focusing phenomenon. One of the pioneers in the study of hypnotic induction, James Braid, used a focusing technique termed eye-fixation. Below, in his own words are the basic techniques he utilised to place a subject in a hypnotic state. When reading this, I was struck by recalling the the common characteristics of those who experience close encounters with such a field which are 1) Isolation from the environment in the loss of awareness of same as in a hypnotic state 2) The sense of lost time resulting from this. 3) The dream like and out of context images and forms.

Braid said:

“Take any bright object (e.g. a lancet case) between the thumb and fore and middle fingers of the left hand; hold it from about eight to fifteen inches from the eyes, at such position above the forehead as may be necessary to produce the greatest possible strain upon the eyes and eyelids, and enable the patient to maintain a steady fixed stare at the object.

The patient must be made to understand that he is to keep the eyes steadily fixed on the object, and the mind riveted on the idea of that one object. ( Note: Would contact with a high energy field naturally induce this focus?) It will be observed, that owing to the consensual adjustment of the eyes, the pupils will be at first contracted: They will shortly begin to dilate, and, after they have done so to a considerable extent, and have assumed a wavy motion, if the fore and middle fingers of the right hand, extended and a little separated, are carried from the object toward the eyes, most probably the eyelids will close involuntarily, with a vibratory motion. If this is not the case, or the patient allows the eyeballs to move, desire him to begin anew, giving him to understand that he is to allow the eyelids to close when the fingers are again carried towards the eyes, but that the eyeballs must be kept fixed, in the same position, and the mind riveted to the one idea of the object held above the eyes. In general, it will be found, that the eyelids close with a vibratory motion, or become spasmodically closed.”

When we think of a hypnotist directly suggesting to a subject various scenarios that the subject becomes engaged within, we consider a hypnotic state that if induced by one's immersion in a field that isolates and concentrates by focus, a state of high suggestion then it may be that the subject in this case is self suggesting based on his or her locality, the predetermination of their relation to the environment, his or her data from associative memories, identifications, fears, etc to create, in effect, a waking dream. Again where this takes place ( as in the case of the Jinn) may be a steering mechanism for the experience itself as one's environment does contain clues in one's orientation to it. therefore perhaps suggests images, scenarios that are brought to the surface in a waking dream.

Braid ruminated on the strangeness of this state:

"it appears to me, that the general conclusions established by Mesmer’s practice, with respect to the physical effects of the principle of imagination (more particularly in cases where they co-operated together), are incomparably more curious than if he had actually demonstrated the existence of his boasted science [of "animal magnetism"]: nor can I see any good reason why a physician, who admits the efficacy of the moral [i.e., psychological] agents employed by Mesmer, should, in the exercise of his profession, scruple to copy whatever processes are necessary for subjecting them to his command, any more than that he should hesitate about employing a new physical agent, such as electricity or galvanism"

Of course what I am thinking about is that a hypnotic state is one of dissociation and a theory was developed by Y.D. Tsai in 1995, as part of his psychosomatic theory of dreams. Inside each brain, there is a program "I" (the conscious self), which is distributed over the conscious brain and coordinates mental functions (cortices), such as thinking, imagining, sensing, moving and reasoning. "I" also supervises memory storage. Many bizarre states of consciousness are actually the results of dissociation of certain mental functions from "I". Considering the states in which close encounters occur whether they be "abductions" or simply a close proximity to a perceived out of context objectification within a high energy field, is there any similarity to a state of hypnotic disassociation?

According to Dr Tsai, here are several possible types of dissociation that may occur:

1) the subject's imagination is dissociated and sends the imagined content back to the sensory cortex resulting in dreams or hallucinations
2) some senses are dissociated, resulting in hypnotic anesthesia
3) motor function is dissociated, resulting in immobility
4) reason is dissociated
5) thought is dissociated and not controlled by reason, hence, for example striving to straighten the body between two chairs.

Is there a correlation between the experiential accounts of close encounters and the induction of self suggestion when one is immersed in a localized high energy field? Does luminosity in of itself of a intense variety induce a focus that leads to a hypnotic state?
I don't know and like the phenomenon itself the entire manifestation of a rearranged relationship between the observer and the observed is a highly complex one.
