Hi guys……..sorry for yesterdays absence, my surgery left my body a little drained…….my energy has returned in full force……..thank you so much for all the emails and well wishes……smiles!!……On with it shall we? EXTRA SENSORY PERCEPTION is todays topic for discussion. It’s interesting to me because whenever I mention the subject of Metaphysics the inevitable reply is always something along this line, ” OH!! You mean ESP or the sixth sense, right?” You have to remember that ESP is as broad a term as Metaphysics is. Both imply acquisition of information by means outside of the inherent, very limiting, assumptions of science. I will be relating personal experiences involving ESP, of my own and others, in an upcoming post, but today I would like to open the discussion with some facts and background info. The world of science limits us to “only” being able to gather and receive information from the past to the present. According to science, receiving information from the future an impossibility. ESP has a dozen specific ways of, not only challenging science in this area, but defying science to disprove many of them, including ESP, telepathy, telekinesis etc. The scientific community rejects ESP due to the absence of an evidence base, the lack of a theory that would explain ESP, the lack of experimental techniques which can provide reliably positive results, and considers ESP to be a “pseudoscience”. Now, when I think of this, not only does it get my dander up but it makes me want to scream things like, “Doesn’t anyone see the stupidity in requiring an explanation for the inexplicable!?” I mean, shouldn’t the idea be to manifest the inexplicable and then examine the discovery, so as to define it as well as explain it? Thank God J.B. Rhine and his wife Louisa actually did, exactly that. They are the couple that developed the original “Zener Cards” that we know today as ESP cards, and lab tested specific people over decades and all the while publishing results annually. They were major contributors to the foundations of the brilliant Parapsychology Department at Duke University.
Among scientists in the “National Academy of Sciences” (this is a Wikipedia quote) “96% describe themselves as skeptical of ESP, 4% believed in psi. Among all scientists surveyed, 10% felt that parapsychological research should be encouraged.” So basically, of our community of scientists here in America, 9 out of 10 think ESP studies are NOT worth investigating. This is hard to fathom since science itself had to be forced on the world over a very long period of time to become accepted as viable. You would think that they would learn from their own history that it is in the very nature of humanity to understand it’s own evolution. So, my question is; Why doesn’t science see that Metaphysics (ESP etc.) is a part of human evolution? Science truly “needs” an injection of ESP…
I agree with FREUD (1856-1939) who theorized ” that telepathy may have been the original archaic method by which individuals understood one another. As a better means of communication evolved—–one that could be readily intelligible to the sensory organs——-the original archaic methods were pushed into the background of the subconscious where they may still persist, waiting to manifest themselves under certain conditions.” This hypothesis of Freuds, is one of the most astute to come out in support from the world of science. It is currently , glaringly obvious to psi reasearchers, the world over, that some individuals (functioning largely on their moods and psychic needs) are able to draw on their latent ESP abilities. Some gifted individuals are even able to make regular and practical use of the seemingly rare powers of ESP. The world of ESP and Metaphysics is indeed upon us and it is my prediction that the WORLD NEWS Headlines will be overflowing with reports of psychic abilities and phenomenon to such a degree, within the next 10 – 15 years, that the world of science, and indeed the world itself will no longer be in denial of the fact that humanity is endowed with latent abilities that have been waiting for this period of man’s evolution to manifest themselves……….I am Dartanion2…….and that’s the way I see it!!……..cheers………T

Joseph Rodes Buchanan`s discoveries were amazing for their time! as metaphysics and the various abilities of these unusually talented people were only just starting to be taken notice of, by the general public.
They were just starting to become fascinated with the subject of mediumship, through the media helping to spread the word about this amazing information and all the other subjects and abilities of the few who were willing to talk and demonstrate their talents.
However people can be very cruel to those who possess and utilise these various abilities! Many who are capable, hide the fact from their peers. I am one of those people who mostly keep my ability to myself and have only spoken about it through this blog because I am able to communicate with other like minded people. Those who are broad minded enough to give people like me a fair and sensible hearing!!
The scientific society are very reluctant to admit that they don`t know the real reason or methods that these abilities come through from. They tend to take these things lightly as just entertainment at best and fraud at worst!
There have been many people who are famous from the past who have had these abilities, but sadly there have been just as many frauds, so it is very hard for those with a genuine talent to be taken seriously, even when there has been definitive proof and details that people with these talents couldn`t possibly have known otherwise.
We as a society, are now only just becoming used to the idea of these abilities in this modern technologically developed era, which is a great shame because humans have always had these abilities! We, because of moderisation, have just stopped using them and have almost forgotten how to use these forces of human nature, it is sad because we can do so much good with them when they are used properly. Think about this! geophysics is just a modern technical version of Divining!!
It is very hard work for those who are psychic or able to use psychometry and any of the other abilities that our human brain is capable of, to be able to give absolute proof. These talents have been available to us since time began, we just didn`t take any notice of them anymore, as we developed throughout time. It has been said that we communicated with each other through ESP right back at the begining! before man developed the power of speech! Think about animals, they use ESP, they must do because they can`t speak to each other can they?? Dolphins are a perfect example of ESP!
Why can`t we just accept the fact that some people are still able to use these abilities and put them to some use in doing good work in this world of ours. When children give information to us about these things we should encourage them further, rather than telling them that it is all in their minds! funnily enough that is exactly where these abilities are and we, as a society need to accept that fact and just get on with it and learn from it.
In the winter of 1921, a number of people came together in a room of the Metaphysics Institute – the French version of the Society For Psychical Research in Paris.
They wanted to test a clairvoyant! Doctor Gustav Geley, a leading French investigator, and director of the institute, asked someone to pass a letter to her. A painter and novelist called Pascal Forthuny grabbed it. ” It can`t be that difficult to invent something that applies to anybody! ” He then started to improvise light heartedly for his own entertainment.
” Ah yes, I see a crime……a murder….! ” When he had finished, Doctor Geley said ” That letter was from Henri Landru. ” Landru was at the time on trial for the murder of 11 women! Crimes for which he was guillotined the following year! Nobody was very impressed because there had been a lot about murder in the press at the time!
Geley`s wife then picked up a fan from the table and said ” Lets just see if that was only a lucky guess! ” Forthuny ran his fingers over the fan and looked dramatically into space! ” I have the impression of being suffocated, I also hear a name being called: Elisa! ” Madam Geley looked at him with surprise! The fan had belonged to an old woman who had died 7 years earlier from congestion of the lungs; her companion in her very last days, had been called Elisa! ” I could go on with other examples but I think you get the point I am trying to make for Tony and this blog! There really are more things in heaven and on earth that we have yet to realise and we need to take serious notice of them.

Wow! I found your examples of ESP to be fascinating. For those of us who have experienced instances of unexplainable phenomenon and are deeply spiritual, it is not hard for us to see the potential of the mind to extra sensory perception. It seems logical to understand when you realize that we use only 10 percent of our brain’s capacity. Hmmmm….so what is the other 90% doing untapped? I believe back in the days of Adam and Eve, they had full use of their brain and could do incredible metaphysical things that we are not even aware of. After their fall in the garden, I believe they lost those abilities, as well as the close relationship they had with animals and God. At one time, animals and humans lived as one. The bible tells us that in the new created world at Christ’s return that the lion and lamb will lie down together in peace, wild predatory carnivorous animals will suddenly eat straw, and a small child could put their hand in a viper’s pit without being bit. All will be in Sympatico and unison as God originally designed. I am confident in the beginning that humans and animals could understand each other telepathically and had many other incomprehensible abilities to us today. I see the body language and subtle communication my own 6 dogs give to each other that is spoken in their eyes and reactions…that can only be explained as some extra sensory perception they can still obtain. My dogs know when a storm is coming and will get nervous, long before I hear thunder or the wind picks up. There is so much that we have been temporarily cut off from for our own good in this sinful world . But someday God will give us full access to wonderful abilities when we are forever preserved in our immortal bodies…a whole new world that some of us today feel sure is there, while others insist to explain away. If we all humbly connect to our inner spirit and hush the negative forces around us to get to the calm part of our minds of god, anything is possible.
Thanks Georgina for your very insightful commentary. It made me really think and appreciate God’s world and plans for humanity. God bless you. xox Love, Cherie
Reblogged this on Metaphysics and the Movies according to Dartanion2 and commented:
Here’s one for the home team……….you know who you are…………Metaphysics, often referred to as a category………..or EXTRA SENSORY PERCEPTION………..which, of course, is a subset of METAPHYSICS…………….have a great Monday………….smiles……..T xx
