The Conceptual Domain
The practice of Dynamic Psi revolves around not only manipulating the physical realm, but other facets of the world and reality. The universe is comprised of many, many layers of coexisting energy and virtue, being divided up into many groups and categories. One of the most major definitions of the planes is the 3-plane theory, which fits into most other major systems of thought. 3-plane theory revolves around, logically, 3 planes of existence. We begin with the material realm, the physical manifestation of all planes into what we see daily. This is derived from the conceptual realm, which will be the main focus of this lesson. The conceptual realm is the gathering and holding place of all thoughts, virtues, and concepts created at any time, ever. The conceptual realm holds programming for constructs, intent for a kinet, or any other sort of guidance for a psionic act. Its importance is quite obvious, and understanding of it and the mechanics of it can immensely boost understanding of programming or intent.
The presence of the conceptual domain explains many things. Objects are created from things held in the conceptual domain, and all physical objects or expressions are linked to concepts. This applies very heavily to scanning, as scanning is the act of obtaining information through the soul. Once it is known that the virtues are not held in the objects themselves, it becomes easier to link to an objectís place in the conceptual domain, and retrieve information. Linking to something held in the conceptual realm is the same process of linking to anything else, and it helps a better, more accurate scan to be performed, as there is minimal interference.
The nature of the conceptual plain brings some questions as to the application of psi. As to the application of kinesis to a large event, one must take into account the large amount of thought interference associated. One fine example is the lottery. While you may want to kinet yourself into winning, so do the other millions of people participating. As the planes are influenced by every passing thought by every passing bystander, there's a bit of tension involved. It's one thing to kinet an event in which only a few people are also wishing for the outcome; a few wills are not too strenuous to overcome with a trained mind. However, with 100 million people wishing for different things within the same subject, it takes a fair bit more skill to completely change the outcome than a smaller event. As the target gets larger, more interference is present, and the outcome is more difficult to alter.
Utilization of the conceptual realm in psionics is, without a doubt, necessary to growth. The use and study of the underlying mechanisms is crucial to the practice of Dynamic Psi, and the utilization of them is the difference between a failed attempt and a successful psionic act. The planes hold a necessary aspect of psionics in that without using them, psi is just blind flailing. Begin your study of the conceptual domain through attempting to link to concepts residing on it, and scanning through the conceptual domain.
