The Psychic Phenomenon of Regular Thought…
Afro-Futuristic Vision #28
Most studies about what is termed as Psychic Phenomenon is an obvious ‘front’ for the science community to stay in labs and not communicate with nature. An apparent under-current scheme to avoid physical activity and the clarity of thought that naturally follows once the body reaches its threshold and the rational mind begins to relinquish control. On one hand, science does not acknowledge psychic abilities; although they will study its possibilities…but then again these are the same dudes who do not acknowledge that their precious quantum physics and study of celestial bodies was already expressed in the Principles of Jehuti who later became known as Thoth and Hermes Trismegistus (Ancient Greek: Ἑρμῆς ὁ Τρισμέγιστος, “thrice-greatest Hermes”; Latin: Mercurius ter Maximus) which eventually through squabble and babble evolved into Hermeticism. What follows are a plethora (I first heard that word in Three Amigos) of books, images, dvd’s and workshops on the subject. However, no one has ever done a documentary of the efficiency of this reading material after it was breathed in by the Media and became a product for mental consumption. ON the other hand, what is labeled as psychic ability is actually the natural progression of the physical senses within the body evolving, if you will, along a beautiful road of daily exercises through life. Meaning the more you use your senses the more they develop and the more they will detect. The more a stimulus changes or is introduced repeatedly, the more it re-arranges your experience of the outer-world (which is beyond your skin) and the inner-world (the opposite side of the mass you adorn with ink and high-priced cotton). Of course, no one would believe this unless I can substantiate the psychic phenomenon to those who never sat still in their life to listen to life. Anyway…
What is Psychic?
1871 (n.) “a medium;” 1873 (adj.) “of or pertaining to the human soul” (earlier psychical, 1640s), from Gk. psykhikos “of the soul, spirit, or mind,” from psykhe- “soul, mind” (see psyche). Meaning “characterized by psychic gifts” first recorded 1895.
A psychic ( /ˈsaɪkɪk/; from the Greek ψυχικός psychikos—”of the mind, mental”) is a person who claims to have an ability to perceive information hidden from the normal senses through extrasensory perception (ESP), or who is said by others to have such abilities.
What one may ask or should ask…where was the input of other cultures on this matter? Or do other cultures call this concept by another name?
Results from Wikipedia (the most used and the most denounced) – French astronomer and spiritualist Camille Flammarion is credited as having first used the word psychic, while it was later introduced to theEnglish language by Edward William Cox in the 1870s.
Nicolas Camille Flammarion (26 February 1842—3 June 1925) was a French astronomer and author. He was a prolific author of more than fifty titles, including popular science works about astronomy, several notable early science fiction novels, and several works about Spiritism and related topics. He also published the magazine L’Astronomie, starting in 1882. He maintained a private observatory at Juvisy-sur-Orge, France.
In any case, I am not here to prove anything, I am an Afro-Futurist who is just observing something that has been a heavy topic of discussion. My question is what were Nubian (Afrikan) folks doing prior this coinage. Or does the word psychic bound us to its meaning? Are/Were Nubians psychic or are they just very good at using their senses in the time when they had less distractions by activities.
Psychic Abilities encompasses the following (and if I were ‘psychic’ by Mr. Flammarion’s standards I would not tell anybody):
Precognition, premonition and precognitive dreams – Perception of events before they happen.
Psychokinesis or telekinesis – Manipulation of matter or energy by the power of the mind.
Psychometry or psychoscopy – Obtaining information about a person or object.
Remote viewing – Gathering of information at a distance.
Retrocognition – Perception of past events.
Scrying – Use of an item to view events at a distance or in the future.
Telepathy – Transfer of thoughts or emotions.
Transvection – Bodily levitation or flying.
The main ones we are familiar with are: Psychometry, Telepathy, Clairvoyance, Psychokinesis.
Psychometry – Everything leaves a signature whether of heat, scent or mental energy (thoughts) when it comes in contact with another object or being. The signature is recorded on the surface on that object or individual or incorporated into the persons being. On a molecular level a series of ‘characteristics’ take place in the form of attraction or repelling. More than likely the stimulus that is experience on this level is recorded in their structure the same we record things in our memory.
So it may be possible to receive impressions from objects through touch or by merely thinking about the object.
All the rest (Telepathy, Clairvoyance, Psychokinesis) pretty much run in the same manner, in that, there needs to be some level of focus and ability to perceive the impressions or manipulate matter. Of course, the main source of this is the mind, a region whose so-called physical manifestation can only be perceived through light and electricity…you have to see it to believe it. Otherwise, the mind is very intangible to what we consider reality. If you did not have a nervous system, your perception of mind would dramatically different yet some would say that is mind. However, these are the same people who say humans are on the top of the evolutionary scale and yet still need AC or a jacket at the slightest sign of temperature change.
I can sit here and cite instances of psychic phenomenon but what is the sense in it. These occurrences were happening before the coinage of Psychic and will happen long after. And they happen to people who have the ability embedded in their genes, have had a life and afterlife (the death notion is played out at this point) experience, been contacted by rapidly vibrating beings (your ghosts, apparitions, greys, angels, ancestors, etc.) or just happen to activate their innate ability. Sometimes a large group of people experience them en masse; usually after this occurrence a new DD donut combo comes out or a new alternative to male impotency is introduced…nah I’m just playing…or am I?
If one were to take a moment to remove the coinage of Psychic they would more than likely be able to see the physicality of it without the expense of sacrificing the spiritual, mental, or social components of a person. But then again, someone probably wouldn’t. Maybe physicality was not the best choice of words…anyway I will run with it. All things, even spiritual things, are physical in the sense that the perception of a thing involves physical touch or a physical stimulus. The issue or problem with looking at this proposal is that most people tend to look at the physical as some lower expression in comparison with the spiritual or mental. Which in a sense is foolish because everything depends on the observer’s orientation and location for them to determine what is and is not physical. If someone were in the ‘spiritual realm’ then everything there would be physical because they would be able to ‘touch’ it and interact with it directly. No one can say they touched the mind but it is there and they interact with it continually. In any case, an over-developed or overemphasized physical ability to operate with the senses may produce all of the effects listed above.
One thing I found interesting was the scene in the movie The Black Hole, where Vincent shared a psychic link with one of the officers….there are many who hate on this scene, you simply google ‘Vincent Blackhole Psychic’ and see for yourself. Personally, I think it was the best example of concepts you may find in Afro-Futurism. All things are Alive. Not just what we consider made of flesh. Another topic altogether.
In Scanners, the 1981 ‘Horror’ Movie, they gave a pretty good explanation for the psychic ability – 32:14 – “Telepathy isn’t mind reading, it is the direct linking between two nervous systems separated by space.”
In my Afro-Futuristic Novels, I use the ability of Psychic powers as a technology. Something that is very natural as opposed to supernatural.
The term ‘psychic’ that the Terrans use so carelessly translates to regular communication in the lives of my people. Since we are leagues away from the Terrans on the evolutionary scale, none of my kind ever attempted a direct link with them. What my kind perceives as physical in relation to each other the Terrans might see as spirit or pure mind. Approaching Kenitha’s mind I cautiously held it as one would a delicate object. Her defensive layers of energy are very sensitive but I am getting through without being detected. The core of her thoughts are not too chaotic, this shouldn’t present any difficulty for me. I’ll lower the vibration of my communication to her density and whisper softly to her mind.
N ETERNITY RECLAIMED –
Looking at Jnfr bound and unconscious, I wondered what she endured this day, to end up like this. Maybe accessing Mu’s records of the house would tell me. With the use of the eye, I reached into Jnfr’s mind to connect to Mu’s program. What I found surprised me. She possessed an eye as well–– one she’d received just recently. Although accessing her mind directly would have provided all the answers, I intuitively knew it would be dangerous for the both of us. Once I found the membrane that connected Jnfr and Mu, I sent a light range of notes that were immediately answered by heavy chords. Mu was resisting. Looking to brush me aside it sent heavier chords that caused a sharp migraine, But I persisted until the whole tag of war began to affect Jnfr’s mind.
I am sure with time psychic abilities will become regular thought, it seems to be an eventual part of evolution of course until that time it will be a Phenomenon. I am sure the formation of spoken language did not happen overnight. Everything begins with a thought…plain old regular thought.
More to come…
