Made one!

I'm still pretty cute. Here are the keys - 1) don't party too hard. 2) don't smoke. 3) maintain your weight and 4) moisturize your god damn face.  But I'm 23, so I'll let you know what's up in several years.

Fun tip - If you're struggling with expectation, channel a powerful fictional character. You'd be surprised by how much more powerful your expectation becomes.  :)

Main Hall / Singularity is near.
« on: December 02, 2014, 06:22:46 PM »
Artificial Intelligence has been a subject of great fascination since the inception of the concept. It didn't take very long for creative minds both in science and in fiction to muse on the existential crisis that machines surpassing the intelligence of humanity would cause.

Apparently these days its more science than fiction. A host of leading scientists are openly now openly and fearfully commenting on what the rise of AI could mean for the human race. Most notable are the comments of Elon Musk at MIT, claiming that we're "summoning a demon" by developing it, and Stephen Hawking, who flat out says it could "End mankind".

Singularity - the point in which artificial intelligence will bypass human intelligence and control - is closer than we think it is. And given these statements by the worlds greatest minds, it sounds incredibly dangerous.

My questions to you are:
1) In what ways do you think AI will negatively affect human beings? What would its motivations be for doing so?
2) How do you think AI would go about governing, policing, aiding, and/or decimating humans?
3) How will the rise of AI affect human spirituality? How will the meaning of being human change once we're no longer the dominant intelligence in our worldview?
4) What will happen to human souls if humans become extinct?

BONUS - Check out this really cool timeline of technological advancements projected into the future. Look into the next two centuries. I think this is cool - do you think the timeline is accurate? Feasible?

Psionics / Micro-PK and Fun Tricks
« on: May 26, 2014, 02:14:35 PM »
Macro-PK is something that I've seen many people attempt and give up on in the early stages of practice. It often leads people to give up completely on psionics or come back to practice intermittently, only to set themselves up to fail at it again. Kinesis on a solid object is a pretty difficult thing to perform!

What I've been doing to offset this and build up my confidence is practicing Micro-PK with kobok's PsiLink application. Basically, the idea is to choose one of the six images and kinet it to show up throughout your practice.

What I typically do is "freestyle" a little bit towards the beginning and try to observe how my mind/soul feels when I kinet correctly and when I kinet incorrectly. Then after a while, I play a little game. Statistically speaking, any of the six images has a 1/6 chance of appearing. I try to kinet an image in a 'rep' of 6 attempts and see how many times I can get my image to appear. If I can get it to appear at least 2 out of 6 times, I consider that a success.

The beauty of it is, the first couple of times you try this there will be false positives. But, given that you've properly meditated, this will just build up your confidence to the point where you will actually be performing the kinesis. Results can be pretty remarkable - when you're in the flow of things, its not crazy to be able to make things show up 5-7 times! Then after that you can go back to trying the candle, pencils, whatever.

Try this and see if it works for you. Post any fun / simple tricks that help you succeed with performing psi.

Fun! Thanks for sharing. I'll be watching.

Listen. These forums are about discussion the metaphysical arts. Theory, practice, experiences. If you have questions about anyone's character, save them for a private conversation. I haven't experienced anyone's abilities on these forums and I've been here for a great many years. Like many, I've had to develop my credibility gauge through reading content. Prophecy has contributed a wealth of knowledge that has legitimately helped and inspired many people on these forums. You can have the opinion that he's a fraud, and maybe he is, but let's be respectful of his status here as a member and his contributions.

Thanks kobok. What are some relatively simple and useful constructs that are easy to create after mastering these?

Well, there are a handful of problems associated with them. The embellished language in the descriptions make people a little wary,  but the idea of cataloging certain behaviors and using them to shed light on psychological dispositions makes sense to me. For example, if you know that a person wakes up early in the morning every day and exercises, they are methodical and at least a little disciplined. This test makes more sophisticated and subtle observations. A big problem regarding even what it does right, however, is the dichotomy of each attribute. Introversion vs. Extroversion, etc.

I've seen these used to successful communicate and profile people in the business world but they're not flawless!

Main Hall / Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
« on: January 06, 2014, 04:57:39 PM »
Quote from: Wiki
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.[1]:1 These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung and first published in his 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923[2]). Jung theorized that there are four principal psychological functions by which we experience the world: sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking.[3] One of these four functions is dominant most of the time.

Take this test, answer honestly, and post which type you end up being classified as!

I'm an ENFJ. You can explore the various descriptions of these personalities here.

Obviously, this are a thousand different problems with this method of profiling, but it's really fun to read through and it can be at lealst a little insightful regarding a few aspects of your life.

Were your results accurate? Why or why not? Talk about yourself and your personality!

Wow, that's crazy. This is why everyone loves Lindsey Stirling. Also, I'm on page 20 of the Rumi quotation page I just linked to.

As far Maya Angelou goes - she is an incredibly wise soul. This video of her gives me chills every time.

Maya Angelou is everything! Today I've pretty much done nothing but read about Rumi and his poetry. The fact that he wrote all of the things I'm reading 700 years ago is blowing my mind. I just found a page full of one-lined gems right here.

“Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment.”
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
“Where there is ruin, there is hope for a treasure.”
“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”

You can Google a lot of his actual poetry, but if you're lazy, click here.

Ah, love these links and quotes. Here's a video of Oprah turning her positive thoughts into billions of dollars worth of success.

"But there's no question, if the energy and vibration frequency is correct with what is to come your way, that there is a space that you create that allows that to happen."

Main Hall / Re: Getting people interested in Psionics ?
« on: December 21, 2013, 11:00:49 PM »
Most people will never have the discipline or interest required to become proficient at psionics and that's okay. There are a lot of really useful skills we could learn to enrich our lives that we don't necessarily have time for. A more fundamental and valuable idea that you can teach people through your practice (and just through you life) is that your thoughts can have a truly profound effect on the world around you. A deep understanding of that will definitely empower a person to become the best version of them self.
