Questions & Suggestions / Spoiler blocks?
« on: May 24, 2012, 06:35:37 AM »
Does the Veritas forum system possess a spoiler block for posts?
The one that usually uses [ spoiler ] [ /spoiler ] BBCode in other bulletin boards

I'm just thinking that it might be useful as a content organizer, like if a post contains several sections, the poster can simply put the title or description of the section, and then followed with a show/hide button, which will then show the full content of the section. This would help make the post look a little more organized, especially if its a long one.

For example, Prophecy's magical quarantine article http://forums.vsociety.net/index.php/topic,16035.0.html might be easier to read if each sections was put inside a spoiler block due to the length of each section, the reader can simply open the sections that they wish to read, and simply hide it afterward if they think the previous section distracts them from what they want to read next.

If the post is not that long, such as Kettle's article http://forums.vsociety.net/index.php/topic,17963.0.html which still uses sections for some clarity,
the content of the soul section, application section, and examples section can be placed inside their respective spoiler blocks if the poster wishes to let the reader read it in a non-sequential way, but if the article is supposed to be read sequentially, then the poster can easily remove the spoiler tag.

Just an idea.

Questions & Suggestions / Font size for the quotes?
« on: May 23, 2012, 03:48:20 AM »
I've noticed that the quote system in veritas is quite easy to use, but somehow the display result is not very comfortable

The font size is very small, I guess there might be a reason why it uses that size,
maybe to help the reader so that they will not get to focused on the quote and forget about the actual topic?

The single line quote seems to be ok with that size, but a longer and more lengthy quote kinda suffers from a readability context

However, a little boost in size might be helpful, because so far, I'm having trouble reading the quotes, they're just so small
An italic font with the same size of the normal text would be a viable alternative as well I think, i've seen many forum apply that approach

I'm using a 18.5" or maybe 19" monitor, with 1280x768 resolution if that might help

A longer quote example that is written to be as lengthy as its possibly can while still retaining a meaning to whatever meaning its supposed to be meaningful to, or at least that's what I think, then again, do I really need to think? Hmm...not really sure...ow well

Quote
A multiline quote, that is long, very long, very lengthy, and very long, and very lengthy, and very long, and very lengthy, and very lengthy, and very lengthy, and I'm starting to feel like an energizer bunny, I'll just add the next lines from lorem ipsum.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

And I'm going to repeat the quote again so that it will be even longer.

And again from the top

Psionics / My Psionic progress so far
« on: May 22, 2012, 05:30:38 AM »
Hi all, I'm currently having difficulties in the development of psionics.
I followed kobok's focal meditation article, as well as the Fundamental Dynamic Psi articles, but somehow I'm having difficulties of finding the soul that kobok was talking of, I'm getting the feeling that its a matter of terms and names again in my case

Based on my previous attempts, my approach of finding the soul leads to several too physical sensations yet still no psionics, I tried to contemplate on the matter, and somehow tried to find the conceptual existence of this soul that Dynamic Psi uses. By forgetting the name "soul", I instead use the definition that I wish to connect to the part of me that is capable of directly manipulating the world using my mind, and after awhile, i found myself looking at...well...myself, or more precisely, my physical body, as somewhat of a vessel that I'm using. I feel that I exist within my body as well as outside of my body, and that I am not my body, I am something else, something that exist deeper within me, yet a more expansive form than my physical body, in this state, I simply exist as my true self, something that is silent and observient, without passing thoughts but simply a will, a will to observe and learn and experience.

During this state of meditation, I left the door of my room opened, and I somehow felt a little cold and I naturally said to myself without thinking too much, I'll just let the wind close the door, and the wind close the door the moment I said that (I was closing my eyes, but I know the door is moving, it is wide open, and the only creaking sound it can make is if it moves). It surprised me a lot that when I opened my eyes, the door stopped moving, its position changed from the last time I saw it, I tried to feel the same feeling, and the wind move it again, and when I opened my eyes, it stopped again, closing even further. The feeling got me obsessed, I want to make it happen again, but when I tried again, it didn't happen, not in that kind of obssessive state.

For all I know, this could just be a false positive, because I'm not using my mind to close the door, the wind is closing the door. But is it me who make the wind close the door? I can't verify it since I haven't reproduce the event again so far, but I wish to get a more concrete evidence on what just happened


Questions
So my question is,

1. Is the "me" that I feel and explained above, the same existence as the soul that Dynamic Psi uses?

2. Is the act of psionics actually feel that way? Like, it just happened because it happened, there is no try, just do?

3. Why is it that during the state where I become obsessed and wish for it to happen, nothing happened?

4. Do I actually need to construct a belief behind psychokinesis for myself before I can actually tell myself to produce the movement solely using my mind and not other medium? Because somehow, I can't honestly say to myself that the conceptual me is making the action without any physical cause, not the winds, not the people, not the coincidence, I simply haven't been able to believe it that way, could it be blocking my progress?


I haven't got the guts to actually reply or join most of the discussions here due to my lack of experience, so I'm currently limiting myself as being an observer for most of the discussions and keep my place on the topics that I've created. But I hope some of you could give me some feedback on what I'm experiencing despite my lack of activity on the forum

Thanks

Psionics / The Limits of a Psion?
« on: May 21, 2012, 12:24:28 PM »
Is there anything that you believe you can't do as a psion?
If there is, why can't you do it?

For example, let's just say, you're a psion who works as a firefighter
As a firefighter, your mindset is to ultimately prevent any fire to ever occur in your area of work,
and if it is not possible and somehow due to whatever reason a fire occured somewhere in your jurisdiction,
then you are to dispatch yourself and your team to the area and extinguish the flame there with as minimal damage as possible to the people and their surroundings

I don't really know if there's a limit to what a psion can do in his/her life, because I haven't been able to perform any psionic act so far
I can only naively imagine for now, that if I were a psion, I would

1. Do future selection, to live and experience the world where my area is safe and secure from any fire
2. If somehow I can't ensure point 1, then I would future select that no casualties emerged from any fire that occured in my jurisdiction
3. Or if I can't always ensure point 1 due to various obligations in life,
then I would create a construct that will operate independently from myself and capable of ensuring no fire will ever occur in my area
4. Use future selection to choose a future where no smoke will ever appear and halt my vision during my attempt to search the area
5. Use psionics to actually clear away any smoke, control the smoke movement using my mind so that they would not get in my way during my attempt to search the area
6. In an emergency and extreme condition, where somehow, due to unknown reasons I am left in a dead or alive situation where I don't possess any tool to help me extinguish the fire,
then I would directly use psionics to actually extinguish the fire at site using only my mind

Point 1, 2, 4 represents my assumption that psions can consistently perform future selection at any situation or any time, according to their will
Point 3 represents my assumption that psionic constructs can operate flawlessly all the time if its programmed to flawlessly act in that method
Point 5 represents my assumption that psions is capable of using psychokinesis in real life application to control anything that lies in the physical world at any given situation

On point 6,
I often heard the wisdom that
   "if one is capable of moving a stone by touching it using one's hand, then why bother using one's mind to directly move it without any physical medium?"
   
I understand the wisdom, but somehow, I was hoping that a psion would answer that question with
   "because I can and I want to and I feel like doing it that way, even if it might not be the easiest way to handle the problem, it's simply the experience that I choose to experience"

Future selection might be more convenient to solve many points and problems in life
But if the case is simply to achieve and embrace your full potential as a psion, your complete mastery over everything that happened in your world,
can you deliberately choose the method of how you want to manipulate your world at any time and at any situation?
Is there a limit to your ability as a psion, or does the limit exist only within your mind?

This is just what I naively "assume" psions can do,
I'm sure there are those of you who already master the art and capable of performing the act consistently,
and because of that, I was hoping to hear a not so naive and more concrete answer from you guys

Psionics / Meditation problems, need some advice
« on: May 01, 2012, 04:42:28 AM »
Hi, I don't know if anyone here remembers me, but I used to lurk and visit the Veritas forum back in the days

Anyway, recently I started meditating and training myself again in the art of magick and psionics,
I choose to put myself in a novice shoes once more, and begin my practice from the very basic

I start my practice with my usual meditation routine, I'm not really sure whether it fits the definition of void meditation,
I did it is by choosing a static posture, staying still and letting every suggestions that came to my mind, both pleasant and unpleasant, to simply come as I stay still,
act like a passive observer, let them do whatever they need to do in my mind until the suggestions dissipates, and after that I redirect my mind to the "simply exist" concept,
over and over until there is no more suggestion left, nothing in my mind, and I simply exist

Afterwards I continue to the focal meditation using TakeV's sigil http://forums.vsociety.net/index.php/topic,16587.0.html
(I can't use any candles at the moment, so I just stick with TakeV's sigil just like before)
I put my attention into the sigil and well, just direct my focus there

During both meditation, there are several problems that I encounter

1. Heartbeats

several seconds into the meditation, after I managed to enter a relaxed state in void meditation and a relaxed focused state in focal meditation,
there's usually some ringing/buzzing in my ears, don't know exactly why they happen, they just usually do, which are then followed by the the vivid and strong sound of my heartbeat,
and that's the moment it starts to be a little disturbing

I can feel my heartbeat so clearly, that it disturbs the progress of my meditation, it feels like my whole body is jolting everytime my heart beats
In a way, it kinda ruins my relaxed or focused state, I still feel comfortable and controlled, but I can't progress any further than that

I tried to accept and let the feeling as is, but the sensation is too intense for me to ignore
I'm a little confused on what I'm supposed to do with these disturbing quake-like heartbeats,
feels like my heart is about to explode and jump out of my chest, hoping someone could give some advice on their experience

2. Blind spots

during focal meditation, as I'm starting to enter a focused state, the image of the sigil began to move and sway around left and right,
over the years, I learned to simply accept and ignore them and simply relax and redirect my attention to the sigil whenever that happens,
I simply remind myself to pay attention to the sigil using my mind, my eyes are simply the helper tool

However, another distractions usually came after the swaying of the sigil,
as I focus deeper and deeper, the sigil usually got "destroyed" by blind spots that emerges everywhere all around the image
up to the point where I'm feeling quite disturbed by what's happening and started to over-concentrate my mind on trying to see the sigil,
and that's when the focus breaks

Usually, I would simply resettle myself, take several deep breath, and continue/redo the meditation after I feel that I'm ready
But honestly I'm a little confused on what I'm supposed to do when the blind spots begin to appear and eventually remove any visual trace I can find from the sigil

Whenever the blind spots happen, there is no sigil anymore in front of me,
all I see in my eyes are background of the sigil/object that I'm supposed to be looking at,
usually, my mind is surprised enough by the visual change that happens, that it kinda "wakes me up" and make me lose my focus


I tried looking for those with the same problems as me in most of the threads,
but I haven't seem to find any that address these problems, so I'm opening a new thread for some advices

Anything you guys can share with me regarding my problems?
Thanks in advance

Hiya everyone, my name's ezpero or ez for short, I've been lurking around on the veritas wiki and forum for a while actually, but just registered recently after reading some of the articles here

I'm mostly a knowledge seeker, I study several variants of paths/knowledge regarding spirituality, psychology, alchemy and magick, mostly looking for the meta-principle behind each of the paths that would help in the development of my life, soul, surroundings and self, and that's what lead me here

I guess that's that for my introductory post, hope to learn and develop my potential and knowledge further here in this community
Thx, and bless you all guys~
