When people ask how to get started with many paranormal, psychic, or magical arts, many people usually recommend developing sensitivity to some concept of energy. Many energy work and energy healing practices, psionics, and popular ideas in occultism concerning influence are metaphysical cognates of animism and vitalism. Specifically, many ideas involved in many paradigms of “energy work” and “energy manipulation” are cognates of Mesmerism and Spiritualism. A vital, animistic force metaphysically corresponds to an ethereal entity called the spirit or other forms of anima. This vitalistic force is called qi, ki, chi, spirit, the ethereal body, ethereal energy, or just Read More
…The Veritas Society (called vsociety), before it was taken down, differentiated between Psi and Chi as well:… The Psion Guild, which specialized in Psi and the differences between it and other energies, also are of the opinion that Psi and Qi are two types of energies that originate within the human body, but aren’t the same:.. A reason those sites are defunct is that a lot of the information was wrong, and site owners could not maintain it with current information because of lack of academic expertise. XIII is having a hard time editing the content to relevant material as Read More
Psi balls, and all psionic constructs, are imaginary unless correlated with a real entity outside your mind. That correlation is a change, so you can determine if your imagined construct has a real influence by looking at changes in things that are not your mind. For example, if you intend to shift temperature or influence something, it should do work. Technically, psi balls are unrealistic conceptual abstractions that can model real influences. There is technically no ball of psychic energy between your hands because energy is an abstraction for how objects can change. My recommendation is to loop back veridical Read More
Akk_b_unique wrote: Using magic and psi together… Till where I know magic is about controlling energy externally through candles, crystals, incense sticks etc (although I have never done it) and psionic is controlling energy through ur mind alone. So is there any way to use them together like using crystals to amplify ur precision in tedious task like remote viewing or psychokinesis I wrote: The crystalline structures we empirically know interact with psychic fields are organic compounds, such as what comprises your brain. Systems of carbon structures comprise humans, and humans are psychic. An extrapolation of our organic chemistry is Read More
witty_dullness wrote: Everyone is mentioning an energetic shift or cosmic occurrence happening in Oct/Nov. Can someone tell me what’s up? I wrote: Psychic energy is an abstraction of consciousness (astral energy is a confluence of reliable, frequent events and cycles; like the seasons), so any cultural shifts or differences among cohorts can shift energy. Any group of people that experiences or thinks about the same events will create fluxes. Dean Radin, in particular, studied this. A field of consciousness is an abstraction of this model. The Global Consciousness Project is a project intended to gather empirical and experimental data on Read More

Organic chemistry is pretty much everywhere! In this episode of Crash Course Organic Chemistry, we’re talking about the amazing diversity among organic molecules. We’ll learn about the origins of organic chemistry, how to write Lewis structures, condensed structures, and skeletal formulas, and what gross organic compound the Romans used to dye their fabrics pretty colors.

In a logical sense, every entity has an identity and a negation of its identity, so it is possible to mathematically and logically disprove most statements practically. That is not taking into consideration Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem or paradoxes. Read More

There are also infectious and projective aspects of human consciousness and the limitations of perception that are yet unknown that may explain manifestations of paranormal activity as well Read More
Cytoscape is an open source software platform for visualizing molecular interaction networks and biological pathways and integrating these networks with annotations, gene expression profiles and other state data. Although Cytoscape was originally designed for biological research, now it is a general platform for complex network analysis and visualization. Cytoscape core distribution provides a basic set of features for data integration, analysis, and visualization.
Commonly, people conceptualize subtle energies as ephemeral, ethereal, and intangible quintessential entities. That assumption means that those entities have no solid substance that we can hold. Various ideas about magic propose that quintessential entities facilitate magical operations and applications such as enchantments. Manipulation of quintessential entities is an intuitive, easy, and common method of augmenting an object’s attributes. A common technique is to anchor, imprint, or link a quintessential, ethereal construct to the physical object so that the physical object emanates the enchantment’s properties. That method of enchantment is like painting or gilding an object. It does not change the Read More
Falsification of theories– the artificial synthesis of urea helped to falsify vitalism
The purpose of the “Funky” series of documents is to help develop an accurate physical, conceptual, geometric, and pictorial understanding of important physics topics… The Funky series attempts to clarify those neglected concepts, and others that seem likely to be challenging and unexpected (funky?). The Funky documents are intended for serious students of physics; they are not “popularizations” or oversimplifications.
Vitalism does not exist; theory can be falsified by creation of urea through the artificial synthesis of urea
