Using Science To Explain Psychic Abilities


Given the long history of what we call psychic abilities, I think the modern era allows for a scientific exploration of the topic. This exploration is pre-supposing that psychic abilities exist and that there is a measurable reality granted to them. Though I'm not the first to suggest or attempt this, I do think I can do a better job of phrasing the experiences in scientific language, as well as ground the psychic experience in a cultural context - as I think past researchers have been taking the wrong approach.

On a grand scale, I'm certain that all psychic abilities are variations on a single type of energy manipulation, and that all organisms are using this manipulation to some degree.

An example would be found in the shark: sharks can't see very well, thus sharks hunt by sensing electrical signals in other fish. Among psychics, this is a version of the "empath" ability. Though sharks depend on this ability to survive, it doesn't seem to have any purpose for humans in the modern era - though it may have been used at some point in human history to hunt animals in the wild.

Though back to energy manipulation: abilities that control the elements, that control the movement of small or large objects, and abilities that control energy within the body all are a single type of control over a single type of energy. It's likely that your personality shapes how your control over the energy manifests - this part probably isn't news to anyone that frequents this site.

But perhaps collecting observations together could help people understand how the abilities are a form of energy manipulation, and that this means they can be controlled through certain means:

1) By exercising. By this I mean keeping the flow energy within you unblocked. Eastern medicine has a concept called the "meridian system," which is a network of 361 points along which energy flows - you might call it the psychic nervous system.

2) Psychics can sometimes see the meridian system, as well as control the flow of it. In Taoism, seeing and controlling the meridian system is part of a system of medicine, and monks/priests are even able to attain immortality in spirit form after a certain amount of training (think blue Jedi spirits) - though that's a topic worth discussing elsewhere.

3) Everyone has a meridian system, but for some reason psychics have an amplified amount of energy flowing through them, and can also connect to and absorb the energy flowing through nature, animals, and other people. On this point, I don't know what the different is between a natural psychic and a normal person that's been turned vampire style, but it'd be interesting if anyone knew anything on this topic.

4) This energy can be controlled by using various stones and metals: research chakra/qi/chi/mana stones and you'll discover that the right stone can dramatically help you control your abilities. And if buy or make a wand, you'll be able to protect yourself without much training.

5) I'll expand this list in a later entry.

Though for those looking for more than anecdotal advice, the largest recorded account thus far for psychic phenomenon in the public eye are the world religions. The major faiths are filled with stories about psychics using their abilities to lead, heal, and help people. And if you compare faiths across cultures, it seems that several different dogmas are actually the same. This leads me to believe that at some point a group of psychics agreed on a single book to use, and then simply changed the names and cultural references for the particular area they lived in.

To this end, psychics in the past have gone by the title of "wizards," and it seems that the leaders of the different faiths were all wizards that gained their positions through their psychic abilities. An example would be the Catholic bishops: the bishops wear amethyst rings. Psychic healers know that amethyst is a stone that increases the healing ability. On this point, I think psychics can find a position to argue from that their beliefs are not new or strange, but ingrained in culture under a different name.

There's no public service in the West to help new psychics, but if you research Eastern meditation practices, you'll find a lot of answers that wouldn't otherwise be apparent.

Interesting view point of psychic phemonemon. It makes sense 😊😁 I am been trying to find more information about where psychic comes from and it seems like the more I research in this topic it just never ends.>.< 😠

Yeah, given that I seem to be able to switch between every element and between different abilities, then this suggests that a single energy field may be the source we're working from.

Using it is just a matter of imagination.

I write fiction to help me practice visualizing. Sounds like a common thing, but it means something different for psychics.

Though you want to be careful, as sometimes what you will to happen unconsciously will actually happen.

Hey Lasker, it's Curious. You commented on one of my stories, and I looked up Biokinesis, and I think I have it, but I've influenced a few other things, like outcomes, or choices, and I want to know what it is, could you help me?

Hi Lasker, Liked your post and it made a lot of sense.
Thought I'd chuck some notions out there to you as you seem on a similar page.

I'm new to the whole psychic thing but have always believed in a yet to be discovered and proven energy that works as a transport and support system for not only our spirits but as a governing energy for life across the universe.

A bit about me before we go in - I'm arts based with my main love being abstract paintings etc but for about 8 years I've been working as a pro photographer. Portraits, weddings etc etc A few years ago unexplained lights/shapes kept getting in shots. I worked through dust on the CCD chip, dust/smudges on the lenses, lense flare, sun etc etc and couldn't work them out. So sent it to more people to work out if I had faulty equipement. They drew a blank and so sent it to psychics and it got put down as orbs.

My step Dad and I often chat about spirits and stories etc as I was fascinated to find out a few years ago that he thought the same as me.
I was suprised because he's a veterinary surgeon and thus a real man of science and I'm artistic and the other end of the scale.
We both see it as you described. The way I look at it, be it morbid but imagine this-

You're really late for something very very important, you're sprinting to get there and sprint across the road, mind totally on the task in hand and then splat, hit by a bus that you never heard or saw coming.
Now all that energy we have in us can't possibly just disappear at that moment.

I read recently on the internet that it could be this unknown energy that surrounds matter. Science has no answer or the technology to answer these questions but I was interested to hear that particles when they collide can still have an effect on each other even if massively spaced apart. Just from that one split second collision.
Hence remote viewing.

Who knows but I'd lay a sportsmans bet with you that in x amount of years it will be as common in science and human knowledge as kinetic and potential energy is today, and everyone will be looking back and saying ' God, how did they not know that!' like we do now with say the earth being round as apposed to flat.
Cheers for the post and like the site.

I just wanted to say I appreciate this post. I personally believe not only that psychic phenomena are real (having had them numerous times) but that there is a logical, rational, scientific explanation for how they work. I wish more of the world looked at it this way.

Very Interesting. You could be right but I think that some things are just not meant to be explained, they just are. Thanks.
