Welcome to the Psionics Research Project!
In this project we will attempt to learn some â€˜psychicâ€™ abilities to see if the mind does have more power then we give it credit for. Now, results WILL vary, simply because some people are better at it than others. Itâ€™s like anything else; it takes practice, patience, and some level of talent. If you manage to get the desired result from your test the first time around, and its consistent, then give us your results, but keep in mind that some people will have a harder time at getting it to work.
The trouble with Psionics is simply this:
1.) If someone tries it one way and it works, that does NOT mean that it will work exactly the same way for you. Most of the time spent in learning the abilities are used up figuring out your particular way. Itâ€™s definitely a learning process.
2.) Some people will be able to learning things twice as fast, if not faster then other people. For example, I have heard of people trying for years before they actually made something move even a little bit, where I can, after 3 days of practice, make objects in my hand twitch, and move pendulums (barely).
3.) Some people may not be able to do it at all. We donâ€™t really know if itâ€™s a limited gift or if it can be learned by anyone. Personally, I think it can be learned by anyone, given the correct amount of practice, however, being human, I could be wrong.
Here are some rules for practicing and/or doing experiments:
If you are practicing Telepathy, you must get more then 4 answers correct in a row for your results to be considered more then lucky guesses.
If you are practicing Empathy, you, again, must get more then 4 answers correct in a row for your results to be considered more then lucky guesses.
If you are practicing Micro-PK, be sure to have a calculator so you can know the chances of your results to have happened randomly.
If you are practicing Macro-PK on a Psi-Wheel, be sure to have all the windows closed and try moving it through a glass container of some sort.
If you are practicing Macro-PK on anything else, make sure that the only way the object could have moved is by your mind. If the object only moves a little, try it again, as it might have been a trick of your eyes. Also, any videos or photos that you are able to provide of Macro-PK would be very appreciated.
Now we are going to need Researchers who will do the question searching for us. They can also be Testers if they like, but it is not required. Testers will be the ones actually practicing Psionics.
Your welcome Smirk. Hey, you could always become one of the Testers if you wanted.
Now, let's get this show on the road.
A few things I forgot to include in the introduction.
Psionics is a serious discipline. If you over-work yourself, something only done on purpose, it can cause damage to your body. If you only barely over-work yourself, you'll get very small symptoms. For example, I over-worked myself during my PK excercises last night, and this morning I woke up with a cold.
Of course, depending on what you were doing, you could get headaches to soreness of the joints. Be espically careful during the construction of Psiballs, as during the process you move the Psi through your body.
If you try and do this too much, it can cause a chemical inbalance within your body. If the inbalance is large enough, it WILL kill you. I wouldn't worry too much about it, as long as you stop and take a rest when you feel pain(This will happen at least once in your practice) you should be fine.
Just be sure you don't over do it, and keep a fun atmosphere about your exercises, and you'll do fine.
The first thing I learned is Fork/Spoon bending. Ever tried to bend a fork or spoon with your bare hands? It's pretty hard, until you master the art.
The instructions I use are as follows:
1.) Find your fork/spoon.
2.) Rub it gently on the stem, whilst asking it in your mind if it would like to bend today.
3.) Look away from the fork/spoon and give it a casual push.
If the method works for you, then the fork/spoon ought to give way like butter to a hot knife.
Testers, its your turn to follow the instructions and try and bend your untensils. I, however, cannot simply because my parents won't allow me to bend up anymore silverware.
The only fork I ever bent as been already dismantled by my eager learning hands. It's lying in peices on my desk as I type, and is standing proof that this is possible.
Post your results for each experiment you perform until you get it to bend. Note any tingling feeling in your hands or a sudden feeling of softness in the fork/spoon.
Ok, I am back from a long day of work today, (10 hours)
I don't know if I have the energy to bend anything right now but I will rest up and give a try to what you mentioned Waxy. I will post the results and even try to get some pics or video of it if I can.
So I have tried what Waxy posted on bending metal objects, a fork, and have had no luck so far, I have had quite an experience with calming myself though, putting myself into a self-hypnotic state that I have not been in for some time now, so I thank you for that bud!
Anyway I am not going to give up with just the way Waxy said worked for him, I am gonna try some different techniques and see what I come up with.
Ok... I did exactly as you said Waxy.
For about 2 minutes, I help the fork in my hands, gently stroking the neck, and convincing it that it needed to help me, and by bending, it would help me.
I believe I also urged some heat through my fingers, trying to heat up the neck so it would be easier to bend...
I looked away, pushed, and the fork bent in my hands.
Now, the only problem is, I do believe the fork bent because of my... astonishing hand strength, not because of will/mind power.
What I'm going to proceed to do now, is try to bend a different type of fork, and different sizes.
Ok, so far I have tried forks, spoons and went even smaller with one of my wifes hairpins...no luck whatsoever.
I need to build up my energy I think, I have been so drained lately from work and this cold I have had for a couple weeks now.
I have "noticed" other things happening though, I feel more alert to things out of the corner of my eyes, like shadows moving, and every now and then voices I can barely make out, which in the Psychic Training Manual over at totse.com says could happen when you begin to realize the reality of your psychic energy.
