This psi switch thread is interesting. I have long pondered these
My success with psi tends to be independent of environmental and temporal
I have also observed that numerous successive sessions with identical
parameters and conditions which yielded excellent results are no guarantee
of the next session's success under those same conditions.
I do not find the time and environmental "consistency" theory holds water,
but I understand that familiarity and consistency may create a "comfort
zone" for some individuals. That is human nature.
The "novelty" theory that PJ postulated is as viable as any other
explanation, but I consider it only a factor, not an expanation. I think
the brain and psi are always in a fluid state which is affected by many
factors including perceptual, emotional, physiological and atmospheric.
I have observed that when I have a mental block and my ability to establish
and maintain a quality signal line or extract data is diminished, my
cerebrum seems to have less dominance over my visual cortex and the rest of
the brain. It is as if the frontal lobe (ship's captain) has had control of
the ship wrestled away from it by the crew, in a kind of "psi mutiny". Only
when my cerebrum regains the helm and the various elements of my brain are
once again performing at their stations as a team am I able to resume psi or
RV functionality. The same applies with the formation of inspirational
ideas or with artistic creativity in my experiences.
It reminds me of the popular Peer2Peer networks (Napster, Kazaa, WinMX,
etc...) that so many people use to exchange music and software over the
internet. The desired target and related data are out there residing
somewhere, but the connections to those hosts are dynamic and very
inconsistent in speed and online status.
Your P2P software may search and locate a target, but if the connections
fail or slow down your chances of success at acquiring that data from those
hosts diminishes. Our brain, psi and RV targets are analogous to this
I think if there exists one physical "switch" in the brain that toggles psi
on and off it would likely be the amygdala.
I would love to hear Charles Tart and Ingo Swann discuss this.
