New scientific research is calling into question the relevance, magnitude and relative importance of consciously directed, linear, or logically-structured control processes. Consider the following examples from biology and neuroscience.
Recent scientific research shows the vast majority cells in our body are foreign: we have 10 bacteria in our body for every one 1 human cell, about 10 trillion foreign cells per person. In some cases these bacteria perform valuable functions such as strengthening the human immune system in multiple ways (Science, Vol. 342).
Similarly, work in human consciousness shows that much of our awareness is based on “zombie systems,” as some call them, within the human unconscious mind (David Eagleman, 2012). These are fundamental parts of our of minds that do important things for us, but that we are not unconsciously aware of. Some estimates put consciousness at less than one percent of our total innate human awareness (Tor Norretranders, 1999).
And in economics, Taleb Nassim (2013) and others have shown how overly rational, formalized systems are prone to be fragile, less robust, and more vulnerable to unexpected discontinuities than more naturally resilient, fractal, nonlinear structures. These principles seem to apply to a wide range of subjects.
For example, research in neuroscience shows that the human brain builds new neural networks so as to rewire itself continually, up to one million new dendritic connections per second. In this way, are thoughts and feelings are continually being amplified through new neural connections.
Research in remote viewing sponsored by the U.S. government from 1973 to 1995 showed that the average person had a higher degree of “psychic functioning” than would be predicted from a null hypothesis. Natural psychics can accurately describe distant phenomena as can average people with some or little training (Radin, 2013). One idea that explains this is called “Synergistic Quantum Entanglement” as articulated by former intelligence agency director Christopher “Kit” Greene.
Another is Dr. William Tiller’s (2005) concept of “Reciprocal Space”, an inverse universe of the physically perceptible “solid” world all around us, what he calls “Direct Space.” D -space processes work in a mechanistic, observable, linear way. In contrast, reciprocal spaces, or R-Space, work faster than the speed of light, instantaneously in fact, and could explain such phenomena as remote viewing, telepathy, telekinesis, and other so-called “paranormal” activity.
Whatever the principle behind this phenomena, it has many similarities to superconductivity, such as a sudden drop in electrical resistance and increase in electrical conductivity. A person can suddenly describe a distant person, object, location or activity that is not accessible to their conscious mind. Thus, the perception takes place in a conscious “gap.” While this “gap state” could be called “paranormal” it most likely related to the universe’s ability to spontaneously self-organize energy and information into consistently more intelligible and higher-ordered forms. It can be thought of as a type of leveraging.
These principles can be applied in many ways to let someone develop heightened intuitive and creative ability. In the same way that bacteria can assist human cells in numerous ways, so can unconscious processes assist conscious ones. These type of randomized systems are inherently disorderly, but as descriptive complexity theory tells us: systems tending toward randomness display more information than orderly ones.
“Rspace” is the realm of much more unpredictable and subtle signals, that while not as perceptible as “Direct Space” phenomena in ordinary perception, nonetheless play an important role in the structure of our perception. And Rspace phenomena can help us naturally capture some of background processes that exist in the universe. We can think of the Rspace as the “dark matter” and “dark energy” of our perception and consciousness. It may be challenging to grasp, just as physical dark energy/dark matter are, but it could be just as fundamental.
We can also think about Rspace processes as a type of “gap state” technology because they happen in between conscious thought, seemingly by an unseen hand. It’s almost like the Rspace is imprinted with an energy signature which later on gets expressed in the visible world, in some empirically verifiable and identifiable way. Research from institutions like SRI, PEAR Labs, and others have shown us that phenomena like remote perception and telekinesis are absolutely real. The effect sizes are small but highly statistically significant (Dean Radin, 2013).
And in some cases, various individuals, like the artist Ingo Swann, could exhibit these qualities in a much larger magnitude. In an age of scarcity and lower economic growth rates, it would be wise to explore these “mind/energy technologies” so individuals and nations can gain maximum advantage of their innate yet unexplored abilities.
We can think of these Rspace types of activities as a technology because they evolve within the perception and conscious of each individual. Yet the data show they are objectively real. They seem to act like “mirror systems” to the physical world that we can perceive directly.
To ignore these capacities is to turn away from a huge growth area in human ability, scientific advancement, and economic development. Two types of training which we’ve used to access these “R principles,” with which we’ve had some success so far, include Virtual Viewing training and Human Fusion. Both of the training methodologies show individuals how to use their “gap states” to leverage, amplify and magnify their innate intuition, insights, and creative thought processes. We’re just at the beginning of understanding these processes but that’s the nature of any technological change.
