Last Wednesday I copied here a post from Messiah Truth. Here I copy what was the very next post on that same thread, from 2006-12-02, reporting some scientific research strongly suggestive of the existence of an interpersonal or transpersonal, or possibly “spiritual” or affective, “field.”
Some news items of interest …
… reported in latest issue of Edgar Cayce magazine:
(1) Information was transmitted between two atoms at distant locations at speeds greater than that of light; this is also known as “teleportation.” This turns out actually to be “old news”; one’s entree to the articles may best be as follows:
“Quantum physics: Push-button teleportation,” by
H. J. Kimble, and S. J. van Enk. Nature 429, 712 – 713 (17 Jun 2004).
(2) Pairs of romantically involved persons were separated and monitored, once via EEG and once via a different instrument measuring electrical impulses to the gut. When one partner contemplated a photograph of the other, within moments the latter person’s monitors indicated a response. My source provided the following bibliographic info:

Religiosity can express any of various impulses, including these:
(1) Desire to placate the gods.
(2) Desire magically to assure desired outcomes. This is the essence of the Baal cult. Robert Jenson says it is also the essence of all religions except Christianity (:lol ).
(3) Desire to understand, and live in harmony with, the truth.
My earliest childhood memories are of a sense that there is more to the world than we perceive with our five senses, and of a desire to understand and correctly relate to that larger world. I have my moments or months of what some call doubt, of agnosticism or atheism, but in the end this thing always comes back. I feel it in my flesh and bones. This is ONE foundation of my religiosity.
First and last, he’s a charlatan.
For the next little while, Saturday posts may be sporadic.
(1) Clairvoyance isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
(2) It’s a mistake to ASSUME what sort of healing someone wants.
Doing research for “Pious frauds” (forthcoming 11/24/18), I had to review information about various occult groups and figures.
Reading the Wikipedia article about #DionFortune, I was overcome by positive feelings toward her, as if I would really like her if we were to meet in real life.
A polar opposite is #AleisterCrowley. Historically, and again this time around, whenever I read anything about him, I get these feelings as if I really, really dislike him. Now, he did, in fact, do many things I strongly disapprove of. But should I be catching feelings behind that? He’s DEAD!!!
Then there’s #AmbroseWorrall. It has always been the case that, whenever I read anything he’s said, I am instantly predisposed to trust and believe anything he may say. And he says some things sometimes that can be hard to believe.
Bottom line: I suspect something’s going on here, more than meets the eye.
BK keeps the TV tuned to CNN.
On Sundays, Fareed Zakaria’s GPS comes on when I’m there in the mornings before church, and is rebroadcast when I’m there in the afternoons after church.
His voice makes me feel anxious. Continue reading Fareed Zakaria
