What Are They Afraid Of? (Gladwell, Lehrer, and a Case of the Scientific Heebie-Jeebies)

I’m a big fan of Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink: the Power of Thinking Without Thinking and the new book by Jonah Lehrer, Imagine: How Creativity Works. Both of the authors bring a lot of new research out about the the innate and mysterious power of our intuition and natural creativity. They reveal the inner workings of our subconscious minds and how some of our best talents are hidden behind the trappings of the conscious mind.

And yet both these works still leave me wondering why they never, ever mention some of the latest research into the less well understood aspects of our minds including the 25-year project by Robert Jahn at PEAR Labs, Princeton University, which shows that human thought can subtly influence machines. Then there is the remote viewing research of Hal Putoff and Russell Targ funded by the federal government at Stanford Research Institute for twenty years beginning in the 1970’s. Or the more recent research by Jonathan Schooler and Michael Franklin at the University of California, Santa Barbara on the possibilities of human “presentience” (having a sense of events in one’s immediate future.) And these three examples only scratch the surface.

Crop Circles and Creativity (and what keeps me going back)

People often ask me why I continue to study crop circles year after year. The truth is, the crop circle phenomenon is one most inspiring and creativity-enhancing subjects I’ve ever come across. The designs are beautiful: some mathematically complex and some simple. But when you perceive them in their natural landscape, it strikes a chord (so to speak) in your awareness. Whether they are manmade or not, doesn’t matter to me: we’ve seen strange effects on our cameras and batteries in, or flying over, our own experimental formations. Yes, the batteries or cameras just stop working or malfunction in inexplicable ways. These patterns continue to push my mind to new places that it ordinarily wouldn’t go. And consider possibilities I hadn’t ever considered before.   And that, in itself, is why I keep going back.

Forbidden Science

Forbidden ScienceI’m currently re-reading this excellent book, Forbidden Science, by Richard Milton who looks at the hostility of mainstream, institutionalized science to new inventions and technologies. We’re not talking about anything far out by today’s standards but everything from lightbulbs to airplanes were ridiculed or denounced at one time. The Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison, Nikola Telsa (created alternating current) and the inventors of radio and television were all, at one point or another, considered frauds in their time. To put it simply, almost every modern technology we have around was at one time resisted, suppressed, or banned by mainstream science. The Wright Brothers were considered a hoax by Scientific American magazine up to two years after their public demonstrations of manned flight in Ohio. The book is filled with countless similar examples including the humorous case of the French Academy of Sciences once confiscating all meteorites in France on the grounds that they were an impossibility. And let’s not look at what astonomers and other experts said about the possibility of manned spaceflight, even into the era of the first Saturn V rocket carrying astronauts to the Moon in 1960’s. As Dr. Lee DeForrest, inventor of the vacuum tube is reported to have said of space travel in 1957: “I am bold enough to state that, no matter what the discoveries of the future, it will never happen.”  Available here.

What is Hyper Intuition?

Hyper Intuition™ is process whereby a person can, using specific training techniques, gain access to more information, creativity, and insight than is normally available to their physical senses.

It can be thought of as the “sweet spot” between remote viewing at one extreme, and ordinary “gut” feelings or hunches on the other. In this middle area a person can get highly accurate, spontaneous information about a variety of challenges they are facing about their personal or professional life.

This appears to be possible using principles of quantum resonance whereby a person’s body and mind pick up information directly and intuitively rather than through a physical perception process. In our experience with students who have studied the technique, they are able to pick useful information and get a bigger perspective on projects they are working on.
