When I left this shit off, back in part II…
I was rambling on about how the brain is split into two consciousnesses, how they are actually your parent’s ‘living’ consciousnesses, and how they are constantly bickering back and forth in your brain. Turns out, they also want to you to have psychic powers. Sure, they want you to read other people’s minds too, predict the future, see objects a thousand miles away, and even turn on the TV without touching the remote control, but let’s review the ground work first for a goddamned second.
Cut the Curtains
We are a lot of people in one body.
Sounds iffy? Sorry, but if you think about it, it’s not that crazy. We are bilateral creatures, meaning we can be split into two equal parts. Each side of the body, the left and right side are controlled by the left and right brain. Okay, whatever.
But what would happen if you really split the brain into two separate parts? Well, the sick bastards have done it, and run all sorts of zany experiments along the way with the unfortunate patients. They’re called Split Brain patients. Most of them sustained enormous amounts of seizures throughout their lives. And the only way to ‘fix’ the problem, apparently, was to cut the delicate wiring located between both hemispheres of the brain called the Corpus Callosum.
The Corpus Callosum is sort of like a bridge that info travels back and forth on in the brain, crossing over to the left and right sides respectively at will. Hmm,…I wonder what would happen if I were to just cut this little bridge in half?
Viola! Bon Appetite–H. Lecter
Not only did the surgery stop the seizures in the patients though. It created a whole nother damn mess, entirely. Now the patients, when asked to use their left hand or right hand to do something, the hand, amazingly would do the opposite. In a series of tests, experimenters found that each half of the brain, now unable to communicate with each other effectively, had totally different personalities.
This lead to some interesting experiments.
Duh…The Split Brain patients could no longer decipher what the left or right side of the body was seeing, much less doing. When asked a series of questions about what they were seeing on a computer screen and asked to name it, they couldn’t name it, but the dissociated left side of the body could draw it.
The patient in the above video could function normally, but viewed the world now through a disparate sense, whereby each side of the brain was constantly discovering what the other was doing, thinking, and sensing.
Sure, the patient’s seizures had stopped, but now they had turned into Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at the same time.
So what’s going on here? Why is there seemingly two separate entities being displayed in these Split Brain patients? Could it be because that delicate little bridge now cut was the only way for your Mommy and Daddy to communicate with each other, agree on things, or disagree, and make the body behave in a normal, orderly fashion?
After much practice, the split brained patients were able to begin to function normally again, though very slowly, indicating that the Corpus Callusom, alone, is not resposible for complete autonomis functinig withint the human brrrain.
What is the point? If you haven’t caught on by now, please god help me.
Your brain contains two, living, breathing entities called your mom and your dad. They are active minds, inside your mind. They control you. Split Brain patients exhibit this type of control factor in that when they are separated from each other, bodily control, goes right out the friggin’ window. Good luck wiping your ass.
That’s just one example of a medical malady that indicates we are multiple people functioning in one body.
Then there is Multi-personality complexes, where people seem to be different people at different times. Here we have different consciousnesses vying for expression with in the brain. Our personalities are always changing, in fact. They change to fit the situation.
The Evolutionary Conscious Ladder
With the human mind, the left and right sides are built of generations of special evolution, whereby each generation adds a layer, or a rung on the ladder of your complete consciousness. This happens physiologically as well as psychologically. With evolution, we are able to see the ancient parts of the brain, where our forefathers and foremothers first built the lower levels of the lymbic system, and how over time, with each generation, new parts were added. If you go back far enough, you can see our reptilian brain. That means, yeah, we were once reptiles. This is because we share the same parts of the brain in that area, as say, an alligator.
So, we are built up physically of different creatures, so why not also psychologically? You still have an alligator personality in your brains, so to speak.
On this long and twisting ladder with in each hemisphere of the brain (left/female, right/male) there still exists these different kinds of species of animals that came together to make up…you. And as long as they are there physically, they are also there psychologically. That means, that they are still alive. Yeah, that worm you used to be when the Earth was a big volcano, is still writhing around inside of you.
Beyond The Skull
So, now that I’ve bored you with theory about how the mind is all these creatures’ consciousnesses that are able to communicate with each other, how does all this fit in with psychic abilities?
Here it is:
We are all connected. Yep. It’s a simple as that. We are connected with Everything. Everything alive, and everything not alive. We all share chemical make ups that are found in rocks, birds, humans, and even stars. If you’ve ever studied Biology, you’ll know that living things actually come from non-living elements. Atoms, which are just balls of energy, make up molecules, which make up, compounds, with make up cells, which make up tissues, which make up organs, which make up brains, hands, toes…you get the idea. But scientists disagree just where along the line something actually ‘comes’ to life. Most think it is in the cellular step, but if cells are made up of non-living chemicals like sulfur, carbon, water, etc…doesn’t it make more sense just to say that these singular elements, themselves, are actually alive to begin with? Yeah, I guess so, says my other half…whatever.
So…so…so…if we are made of the same stuff as EVERYTHING around us, that must mean only one thing. That we be down with the trees, rocks, birds, and the bees in the most intimate of ways–We share electrons. ZAPPP!!!
Electrons are the things of life. It is electricity. Electricity is where info travels into and out of. Think of your computer. It uses electric signals converted into binary code to make up that pretty awesome screen saver of colored squares and triangles shape shifting around on your screen. It’s something that simple that creates something that complex. That’s the idea.
Okay, now multiply that times about a trillion trillion times. Since, in our paper thin theory, everything is alive and shares this electrical energy, that must mean that objects themselves, like your desk, must have the same wants and desires as you, yourself. Now go feed your desk a sandwich and watch it thank you.
This energy is especially easy to share between people. Basically, energy is not just contained in the frame of the body, it is extended out through the univeeeerrrrrrsssseahhshit! tst tst stsstsshhhhhuggghhh…gotta stop.
