Bio feedback is a method of controlling your body and communicating to it and then getting a loop of results.  For instance, slowing your breathing or heart rate, you actually see on a monitor how the heart rate drops or how the respiration slows the heart rate.  Do some research on Elmer and Alyce Greene of the Menninger Clinic in Topeka Ks.  They have quite a few very interesting projects including the Copper Wall.

There's another "part of biofeedback".
"Feeling a construct" for example CAN simply be biofeedback. You body respoding to what you're "doing" or think is there.

That post above me is why I call for psionic practitioners to try to verify anything they set out to accomplish as themselves or happenstance.

You could feel like you're moving an object, and the object could move, but it could have been an errant air current at the right place and right time.

Biofeedback in psionics has a value though, you could use it as a method of calling up a sort of tactile bookmark to trigger whatever it is you need to do.

Your IQ test was inaccurate. A person with an IQ of 139 would not only understand that post but be able to write in far much more depth with absurd ease. My IQ has been pegged at 127-135. Can never trust these things.

 Biofeedback is what we call your mind making the sensations you feel during psi (such as heat and such) because you expect it rather than because there's any energy there.

Forgive me. Are these somehow linked to what someone was saying on biofeedback?

AB, this insincere negativity is only harming yourself and this forum. For the sake of everyone, stop. If you have these disorders, deal with them. It may be hard, but the best thing that you could do for yourself would be to start being a bit more positive (and polite to others).

 Biofeedback is what we call your mind making the sensations you feel during psi (such as heat and such) because you expect it rather than because there's any energy there.

This is not entirely accurate at all.

Biofeedback is a form of alternative medicine that involves measuring a subject's quantifiable bodily functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, skin temperature, sweat gland activity, and muscle tension, conveying the information to the patient in real-time. This raises the patient's awareness and conscious control of their unconscious physiological activities.

biofeedback is the measurement of such sensations for lack of better term, not the production of potentially false things, that would be placebo effect.

Also not everyone with an IQ of 139 would easily understand what you said raitaro.  IQ is the measurement of the learning potential, not how smart you actually are or what you know.  My son with aspergers has an IQ of 139 but I highly doubt he would have understood either.  IQ would really have no relevance here but in any case AB, I suggest that wiki is your friend, use it wizely.

Forgive me ChezNips, I believe what I described must be a very common misconception as that is typically how it was described to me on a number of different places. Perhaps a sticky is in order.
 In terms of IQ being learning potential I did not find any of the words or concepts in my explanation particularly tough. My little brother who is autistic has no difficulty deducing the meaning of this sentence. His IQ is also somewhere in the 130's.

I wouldn't doubt that its a common misconception at all with the many different terms we have in the OEC.
