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
…In a generalized sense, energy is an abstraction of the orientation of a system in a vector space and the magnitude required to displace something from its reference frame. For example, rotation around a unit circle provides periodic functions. In the sense of displacement, energy is a differential. You are not using an energy model, because energy models are systems of differentials, periodic functions, and harmonics. You are using a sci-fi plot device. In the sense of Physics, physical energy is a property of sinusoidal waves. Specifically, energy is associated with wavelength. Valid models have consistent definitions and a theory, 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.

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
This post was my response to someone who attempted to sketch out on graphing paper a system of sigils intended to manipulate mental or psychic energy. They were attempting to code and program with sigils. I wrote: It looks like you attempted to create a psychic circuit or cycle. It is very clumsy…Before I start, it is crucial that you correctly understand what circuits are. A circuit is: Traversing a graph such that not an edge is repeated but vertex can be repeated and it is closed also i.e. it is a closed trail. The second thing you should understand Read More
This article describes some recent experimental and theoretical work in China, including successful attempts to train ESP abilities in blind children. It has been contributed by Professor Yi-Fang Chang, a physicist at China’s Yumman University.
Dunabu wrote: The nature and ramifications of the “aether” by which telepathy is possible. Long story short, I’ve finally tapped into this thing, but I understand very little of its nature. What is it? All energy? Does this prove consciousness is a non-local phenomena? Is death even really real?… …By the way, anyone have any legit books or resources about telepathy/psionics? I must learn more theory and know everything!… I wrote: Dunabu wrote: …by which telepathy is possible… Does this prove consciousness is a non-local phenomena?

There are many kinds of dynamics. Some are complicated, others are not. To try and understand this better, we can take a vector field that depends on just one parameter, and let this parameter change slowly. This shows that the dynamics, under influence of this parameter, is sometimes simple and then, without warning, becomes very complicated. We see bifurcations happening.
First, an old idea by Henri Poincaré (1854-1912): when studying a vector field in space, we can sometimes find a small disc that the trajectories hit repeatedly. Studying the points on the disc where the trajectories pass through is often a lot simpler than studying the vector field as a whole. We go from dynamics in continuous time to dynamics in discrete time.
At the end of the 17th century, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) and Isaac Newton (1643-1727), independently one from the other, invented a brilliant mathematical tool: infinitesimal calculus or differential and integral calculus. Read More
