Quantum physics and paranormal

Amit Goswami posted an article titled: Can Quantum Physics Explain the Paranormal? In the article Amit tries to explain the readers how quantum physics can explain what classic physics can’t  – paranormal. Some understanding of quantum physics is beneficial to better understand the article and I must confess that I had hard time understanding some of the concepts. In general he first presents a problem, where even quantum physics can’t fully explain transfer of information between quantumly linked objects over a distance and he tries to find the missing link that allows such events as telepathy take place (since they were recorded to exist in laboratory experiments). His final conclusion is that consciousness is the missing link that allows quantum links to be maintained over time and transfer information. Overall, another quality post from this great...

Follow up on the post ‘A boy in Nepal has been meditating for 6 months’

After having received a comment where ghostbuster said that it’s not possible to live without water for so long, I decided to ask people who might have more knowledge to answer that question. Obviously, living for six months without food and water seems impossible. One of people I’ve asked was Profiler, author of Psychic Blogger Chic. I asked her opinion and also asked her to use her Remote Viewing abilities to ‘look’ into the case. I have received the following reply from her: … Thank you for your questions about the boy in Nepal and meditation. I focused my attention there and saw there is a large veil around this area. There is strong power there and they are very advanced in the use of mind powers to shield others from viewing. They, I suppose are the handlers that are referenced in the article. Beyond that, this boy has received some food and water and has not, as they say, fasted for 6 months. That said, I think we need to look at the bigger picture. Any time an event captures the minds of the masses, it creates a mass consciousness. That is always significant in the schedule of world events and usually marks a significant change to come. I think there is something significant happening here and all over. Whether or not this boy is the Buddha is...

Universal Mind article – part 3

There are a lot of references to Universal Mind in the literature. One area where there are a lot of references is the personal improvement or personal development field. Many current authors state that if one wants success in business, personal life or some other field he should use the help of the Universal Mind. Of course, different authors use different names for this and different explanations of why it would work. One such person is the famous Brian Tracy. In his book, called ‘Maximum Achievement‘ where he wrote almost everything there is to his method, a whole chapter is devoted to this subject. (Chapter 6 – The Master Power). In this chapter Brian calls this “superconscious mind”. He also refers to Napoleon Hill calling “infinite intelligence” , where all knowledge of human race is. He even refers to the “Universal Mind” name as one of the possibilities for naming this phenomena. He even states that all of the previous chapters in this book were to prepare for this chapter. I highly recommend to read this book, if for this chapter alone. Another book that mentions Universal Mind for business success is ‘The one minute millionaire‘ by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen. There, in this book, the authors suggest releasing thoughts of the personal goal into the “infinite network”. That, in turn, will influence other people and...

A boy in Nepal has been meditating for 6 months

An article in is describing a new ‘wonder’ 15-year old boy in southern Nepal who has been meditating now for 6 months straight without food, water or anything else. He’s been sitting under a pipal tree just like the historical Buddha was sitting for 49 days before reaching his enlightenment. Of course, there’s a lot of motion around this ongoing event and a lot of pilgrims from India and Nepal started to gather around the place, creating a buzz and a market. The question that interest me most is how does he manage to live without food or water for so long. In what kind of state his mind and body are that there’s virtually no metabolism going on in his body? Where does he get the energy he needs to live? Update: There’s an article on BBC. Update: I have contacted a person regarding this event and received a reply. Read the follow up post. Another update: Another update on meditating boy in Nepal Latest update: The nepalese meditating ‘Buddha’ boy has...

Benefits of meditation

There’s an interesting article on the site about benefits of meditation. This articles describes a research done on mediation and its effects on about 30 people. The research was led by Bruce O’Hara and his colleagues at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, US. The test showed that right after meditation people tend to have a quicker reaction than even people after sleep. Here’s a quote from the article: Ten volunteers were tested before and after 40 minutes of either sleep, meditation, reading or light conversation, with all subjects trying all conditions. The 40-minute nap was known to improve performance (after an hour or so to recover from grogginess). But what astonished the researchers was that meditation was the only intervention that immediately led to superior performance, despite none of the volunteers being experienced at meditation. Another research that they have conducted in Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston using MRI show that "…meditating actually increases the thickness of the cortex in areas involved in attention and sensory processing, such as the prefrontal cortex and the right anterior insula…". So, don’t waste time and meditate more often. Personally, I noted that I when I meditated for rest, I felt reenergised after just 15 minutes of meditation. I must confess, though, that I wish I’ve meditated more often. Link to the article at...
