"Wait a minute...how exactly does one willfully do something inadvertently?"
I don't know.
If the mind did not will it, it would not do it so it must have been willful. It was inadvertent because I did not know I would or could do it.
Sorry - when I said willfully
I did not mean 'something that came from a mind'. I meant willfully
as in "with full awareness of what one is doing"
. As in intention. That's where the contradiction came in for me - to willfully
, as in intentionally
, do something inadvertently
, as in unintentionally
, was confusing. But I'll chalk that up to semantic confusion.
Have you seen the brain scan evidence that shows that we make decisions in the brain about two seconds before we know we have made it?
Strange stuff going on in our brains.
I haven't yet, and I still owe you responses regarding that video. Apologies.
I don't know if we have a true subconscious. I think it is just a sub-routine to our conscious mind. Hard to know at this point in time.
I actively desired to have more emotional content to finish the project I was working on. I did not actively seek telepathy because I did not know it to be real. That was the first time.
The second time, I did actively seek telepathy and I guess I desired it enough to trigger it.
What I truly do not understand is why you don't try a third
time (and 4th, 5th, etc.). You are talking about an objective phenomenon that other people are calling 'bulls**t'
, would confer extreme advantages to you in your own personal life, could revolutionize the entire way the human race interacts with each other, and provide even more
information for us to continue figuring out how the mind works.
I'm wondering why you don't have an intense, burning desire
to see if you can make it happen again or to at least attempt to systematically determine
the truth value of this claim of telepathy. It's strange.
But furthermore..."I guess I desired it enough"...there shouldn't be any guesswork at play here. You're talking about your desires
- shouldn't that be something that is actively at the forefront of your mind? Shouldn't you have a rough idea of how much 'desire' was required to make it happen?
Total aside, but you really don't need to sign every
post you make. This isn't e-mail, it's a discussion board. If you feel the need to continue doing it go nuts but it's wasteful and pointless.
