A Matter of Time (2019 Edition). from Brother Shamus's blog

This is a refined version of a previous blog. This one deals with the unconscious part and uses a pop culture reference. Unlike its predecessor the part about "time skips" and "temporal fabric" have been removed. So the title is now completely irrelevant to the concept. 


**************************************


Idea Introduction

Of all the quirky things my favorite Triskadekaphobic Maine writer has giving us, like my hero Randall Flagg or Pet Cemetery, his most insightful work may be The Shining. Of course, I will have to slightly warp its literary/cinematic intent. 

In the novel/movie the ghosts of The Overlook Hotel were portrayed in the "still haunting" light of spirits stuck in the movie rule location "get out of here" trope. Entities carrying on to torture or turn into a decaying old lady.  Overlooked by most were the ancillary parts of the story that cast it into an even more intriguing insight into the nature of the paranormal.

Start off with Tony who lives in young Danny's mouth.  An artifact of his mind portrayed as an imaginary friend. If it happened to a person 30 years older he'd call himself a medium that talks to the dead. 


The cook talked to his own Mom, and later Danny right before he died like all black characters in a mostly white cast are meant to.   Up until that point he was the back story for the elusive "third eye" nature to the underlying motif. 

Enter the hotel itself. All the stories told, all the events that took place, all that shined was of key moments and people specific to that location.   The theory being the "shine"  may as well be like a civil war battlefield littered with oratory history making its way firmly into the collective unconscious.  The interesting thing about this archetypal and story filled land is the existence of "genetic memory". 

Enter "the shining". Consider it like unconscious synesthesia. The ability to presence the events and people that make up the history of the location itself.

Idea Breakdown:

Genetic memory:  


"It is based on the idea that common experiences of a species become incorporated into its genetic code..."  -wikipedia

Please submit the above to include things like metaphysical belief also being encoded into genetics by the shared experience of "superstition".  That twitch as old as our species that ensured several sacrifices to make the sun rise. Doesn't matter the superstition, the genetic is the predisposition of.  Like Alcohol to Irish it is.  For them that shared experience of drinking a shitload became genetic memory.

Collective Unconscious


Every culture, every story, every commonly held belief, major event, folk hero and so on lives here. Villains as well. Demons and ghosts, all combine fears of humanity call this realm home.

A layman example may well as be the internet. Consider the surface web the collective. The top results are your massacres and your presidents. There is an order of magnitude to what is most present. 

Current Output:


This one may seem strange, but apart from the collective world there is a current transmission/reception thing happening.  This is where you have to insert some metaphysical bullshit about clairvoyance and genuine psychic ability.  In this regard the "current output" refers to all real-time experiences.

The current output can also be called the phenomenal experience. This occurs in the same space/time everything else occurs and is governed by the laws of physics. "Signals" travel at the speed of light.

There is an ability of the mind to lock in on "signals" that occur in a hertz range which happens to coincide with our own neural range, between 10 and 50 hertz. 

Along with our atmosphere, there is a magnetosphere, and an ionosphere. A firmly electromagnetic world we live on. A nice conduit for signal transmission.


A declassified experiment carried out by the CIA in the 1960's dealt with a "broadwave trigger" in which a broadcast frequency (between 12 and 25 hertz) could induce a wide range of emotions over a targeted area. Mind control broadcast from a satellite.


At all moments ions are flying around and into you. A test of the effect of the atmosphere itself is noticed on days when ions are most excited, windy days.  Positive ionization will cause much higher levels of agitation, where as negative ionization calms a person. While not entirely related, like the first example, it establishes our mind's connection to environmental influences.  


The Shine


Synesthesia is an ability for people to see numbers as colors or words as shapes and do some pretty amazing beyond Rainman things just by viewing the internal landscape of there ability.  Incredible memory and high IQ is also present with synesthetes.  I consider this "shine" and all associated psychic ability, like a synesthesia that deals with collective unconscious and the phenomenal. An ability to  "see the events of past" alongside the live feed.  A tarot card reading without the deck in a greater process where you learn to filter through the noise of all you "pick up".


The locations themselves will keep the aura so long as the stories are told. So long as the isolated and gifted continue to speak of Old Caretaker Delbert Grady and the "correction" of his family with an Axe they will exist.  As seen with Jack you sometimes only halfway pick it up, and are lead by internal conflict and will (portrayed as bartender apparitions).

The Short Movie


All that's gleaned is like a schizophrenic hallucination. Something every bit real seen by one and not the other. And not schizophrenia. Similar in that your mind creates it but dissimilar in how it occurs.

For a schizophrenic it's so ludicrously put together that it builds upon a previously held delusion, where these occur like random flashes of headline news.  The experience can range anywhere from full apparition down to not necessarily seen, but discernable enough to be as vivid as memory. 

A person may suddenly see a person falling from a bridge after being thrown off it for two blinks of an eye only for it to flash away as quickly as it came.  A brief instant where you see the collective memory of a location. 


Projection 


Seems absurd I almost left this out. The main defect and encumbrance is our own subjective lensing. Input filtered through superstition of your genetic memory can make one person's "black cook" another's "Gabriel The Super-Angel".  This is another way of saying it may also be more representive of "a lie you tell yourself" and further tainted by hopes and fears.  


An example may be in Michael Crichton's book turned motion picture, "Sphere", in which Samuel L Jackson manifested sinister Jellyfish based on his fear of the species. 

The Supernatural Retort:
 


What about the more Poltergeist-like happenings?

For legitimate cases, notice how things move. They are quick burst of energy that may all of sudden rustle the blinds or knock a cup over, and all manner of kinetic shenanigans. 


This seems in line with the telekinetic ability observed by everyone who has seen it done. Short bursts. And you do not have to believe me. 


Artifacts and constructs of thought.

There is a progression. Every story is akin to, "at first it was just a little bit and then we started to become aware of it and it escalated".


They might become so concerned why that cupboard is always open that they film their kitchen and call the inexplicable opening evidence of ghosts.  No drafts or other reason they say. 

It's actually evidence of cupboard seemingly opened without a cause and nothing more.  This actually opens the door for "magic" to become plausible, if you want to take credit for the door opening.  You are then taken east to learn of Tibetan Tulpa concepts where you may learn you are the poltergeist. 


The Implications of Whatever This Theory Is: 


There is no spirit world, afterlife, or ghosts, but we do have the ability to do the Jedi mind tricks and magic may be validated to a glitchy "burst of energy" extent.

Quote: Am arguing the metaphysical is an electromagnetic signal that propagates out from the mind, more in line with "Stargate"

Quote of quote: There is no definition of metaphysical that is compatiable with this argument.

EXACTLY. It's an attempt to define everything materialisticly, I used brainwaves as possibly having unrealized potentional. This is the idea I came up on how to write out the metaphysical entirely.

Possibly it's a misunderstood ability we have to interect with our own mental creations.

That is my goal while incorporating this form. I dont accept a "beyond" exists as anything more than speculation and imagination. I feel whats out there and proven leads more to psychokinetic ability and rabid interpretations of organic human thought compost made ever more real. Which is what you likely consider this.

On the analogy. You can have that. I really don't know beyond what articles I have read. It is speculation based on what is known about the low hertz range and interaction with the mind. Its absolutely pseudoscience speculation.

It is also my own experience. If i was a little more spiritual I would think this thing i talk to is an angel and may be part of a greater ethereal war of good and evil. But it's just too dependant on folklore and social archetypes to be an external thing that can exist before the society to think it.

There is no way to assess the nature of reality without metaphysics. Any attempt to do so would leave one with no means to account for things such as number, measure, velocity, and meaning. Even if we agree that these incorporeal phenomena are caused by, and subsequent to, corporeal processes, they are non-physical "things" that exist as entities unto themselves.There is no way to assess the nature of reality without metaphysics.

The hardest thing I have ever undertaken was an attempt to write off the nebulous and abstract when considering these things that defy current knowledge. In my mind they exist like advertising, If you stop paying attention to it it goes away. Remember that old lady that couldn't find the beef? Simpsons reference aside, I view it similarly.

The "things" that the world are left with can change as readily as top search results. We are seemingly stuck on classification and existance of the 'emergent phenomenon', regardless of source of creation. In Freemason lingo, "you are the architect" (no pun intended).

That sounds like a whole lot of unnecessary work with extremely little pay-off. To your point, plenty of kooks do misapprehend what metaphysical means, applying their own spooky connotations to it. That's just crazy people thinking like crazy people are wont to do, though. Metaphysics proper, though, is excruciatingly hard to get around. My knee-jerk reaction to all of this is that the bulk of all this could be untangled pretty easily by attributing the root of the problem to language issues. i.e. people using spiritual as a word for something not-physical, and then branching off to imply all manner of crazy things that are not only not physical, but actually just plain *aren't*. Full-stop.That sounds like a whole lot of unnecessary work with extremely little pay-off.

To your credit, nominalism (which is the word for what you're driving at) is totally consistent with Satanism as a purely materialistic world-view.
The problem lies in that Occultists - the more lucid ones, anyway - are generally conceptualists or even Platonic realists to begin with.
This points-at one very big reason why Satanism and Occultism - even rational occultism - are fundamentally incompatible.

I just think in the next 500 years it will be learned how much more the mind can do and that will reverse the "from the top on down" way of looking at the world. By extension it will kill "god" as anything more than a tradition. By 2519 it may be commonplace for "health class" to have a section on the ethics of telekinesis and effecting the object universe. And this really was the best I could portray my actual idea with this apologetic prone topicI just think in the next 500 years it will be learned how much more the mind can do and that will reverse the "from the top on down" way of looking at the world.

Given trends in social media, entertainment, and the legalization pot, in 500 years the human mind will have devolved to finally be simple enough to understand.

'Likely that human intelligence will decline while artificial intelligence will become more sophisticated, allowing the two to converge much sooner than if it were otherwise.
