Psychic Warfare across the Cosmos (?)

1. Scientific evidence for Psychic Phenomena:

A. Scientific evidence of Human Sixth Sense:

Modern science reveals evidence for Psychic Awareness of "Distant Intentionality" (to wit, 6th Sense):

Some believe there is more to sensing others than pure evolutionary adaptation. Standing in the presence of another human, evaluating their intent, and, possibly, their desirability, is one thing. But what about those occasions when we feel we're being watched -- only to turn and look into the slightly guilty eyes of someone staring directly at us?
In
2005 AD
, the journal
Scientific American
published an article about
Rupert's Resonance
. This idea, from the mind of British Biologist Rupert Sheldrake, intended to explain, among other things, why people think they know when they're being looked at from a distance -- even when the person staring lies beyond the limits of their peripheral vision.

Sheldrake proposes that this apparent phenomenon is due to "
Morphic Resonance
" -- fields of
Energy (Morphs)
running between, and shared by, all
Life
that has been, and all
Life
that is. Sheldrake claims great success in his defiantly simple experiments, in which a subject, or "staree", tells the experimenter whether or not they're being stared at by a "starer" stationed directly behind them
...

In
2004 AD
, The
British Journal of Psychology
published a meta-analysis
(in which a large number of other studies in this field were grouped together, and statistically analyzed)
of available research into "
Distant Intentionality
, and the feeling of being stared at". The conclusion was that "there are hints of an effect
, but also a shortage of independent replications, and theoretical concepts". The jury, it seems, is still out. But studies into this nebulous area continue none-the-less, some of the most recent evidence being collected from a group of Hawaiian
Healers
. The
Healers
, at random time intervals, were invited by the researchers to send their own form of "
Distant Intentionality
"
(in their case, the intent was related to healing)
to recipients isolated within fMRI scanning equipment, capable of detecting patterns of brain activity over time.
The
Healers
had chosen their own recipient, on the basis that they
felt
a "special connection". The authors claim to have found increased activity in several brain regions, correlating with the times that the
Healer
sent their
[Distant] Intent
. Areas that became active include: the
Cingulate Gyrus
, involved in a number of functions from controlling autonomic responses, to feelings of
Empathy & Pain; the Precuneus
, part of the
Parietal Lobe
that may be involved in
Self-Awareness
, among other behaviors; and the
Frontal Lobe
, the home of higher functioning &
Reasoning
*
.

This seems to suggest, that Emotions (eg. Empathy & Pain) can be Telepathically Imposed into a target's brain regions (eg., Cingulate Gyrus), much as Ecstasy can possibly be Telepathically Projected**.

The Rough Guide to the Brain
, pp. 216-222.

. discussion of "
Psychic Ecstasy
" in: Hans Holzer.
ESP, Witches, & UFOs
.
Note
: If
Pleasure
(
Carrot
, "yes, my
Master
is pleased" as it were)
can be
Telepathically Imposed
, presumably so
Pain
(
Stick
, "oh no, my
Master
is
dis
-pleased" as it were)
can likewise be
Telepathically Projected
.

B. Scientific evidence of Clairvoyance & Remote Viewing:

Modern science also reveals evidence of Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) abilities:

Clairvoyance
is the supposed ability to somehow gather information about a place or object beyond the reach of the traditional
Five Senses
... More recently, Canadian
Neurophysiologist
Michael Persinger published research in
1987 AD
implicating the brain's
Temporal Lobes
in
Clairvoyant
ability. In this study, Persinger presented
Zener Cards
to a single test subject... w/
Temporal Lobe Epilepsy
. But, before doing so, he exposed the subject's
Temporal Lobes
, at the sides of the head, to a
Magnetic Field
of one, four, or seven pulses per second (Hz). The one and seven Hz
Magnetic Fields
resulted in no difference from the normal chance success rate of 20%. However,
when the
Temporal Lobes
were subjected to the field of 4 Hz, the success rate for predicting the correct card apparently shot up to an astonishing, consistent, 50%
. One can only speculate why such a potentially revolutionary breakthrough was never published.

Actually,
Clairvoyance
was already being seriously explored by some of the most powerful bodies in both the
Scientific & Political
worlds, under the guise of
Remote Viewing
(RV). In
1972 AD
, the CIA decided it needed to take a closer look at the potential
External Threat of Psychic Phenomena
. To do so, it enlisted 2 respected
Physicists
from California's
Stanford Research Institute
, Russell Targ and Harold E. Puthoff. After identifying people w/ an apparent
Psychic
potential, such as artist Ingo Swann from New York
(in one test, it is claimed Swann identified an object "sort of like a leaf" hidden inside a box, except that "it seems very much alive" -- it was a moth)
, the project was initially successful enough to secure funding for an advanced
8-month
Biofield Measurements Program
.

Moving beyond insects, the programme turned to more demanding test conditions. As part of the
Scanning by Coordinates Program, or Scanate, Remote Viewers
such as Swann were given
Geographical Coordinates
-- latitude, longitude, degrees, minutes, seconds. Like a modern
GPS System
, it seems
they were able to both draw detailed maps of the target area, and collect sensitive data
, such as passwords, from w/in any building at that site. Not content w/ planet Earth,
they even tested the limits of this unexplained ability in
Space
. Coincident w/ the
Jupiter Probe
's fly-by in
1972 AD
, Swann attempted to
Remote View
what no human could ever have seen -- detailed information about the
Gas Giant
from over 600 million km distant. He received a good deal of information, including details of an icy ring encircling Jupiter
. This initially disappointing news suggested to observers that Swann had got his planets mixed up, and was actually viewing Saturn. However, the
Jupiter Probe
later confirmed the presence of this ring. That Swann, and others, of his kind were apparently able to perform such feats suggests either that they were involved in a conspiracy to promote wide-spread belief in ESP, or that
their minds really were somehow able to transcend time & space at will
.

In
1995 AD
, the collected results of the numerous projects were analyzed by the
American Institutes for Research
(AIR).
Their final report found the
Psychics
to possess a
significant success rate
of 15%
...

In
2002 AD
,
The Journal of Perceptual & Motor Skills
published research in which Swann's brain was analyzed whilst in the act of
Remote Viewing
, subsequent to exposure to
Magnetic Fields
.
The study noted that an unusual pattern of brain activity over the
Occipital Lobes
showed a significant correlation w/ the accuracy of Swann's RV sessions
; the authors concluded a
Neurophysiological
basis for his unusual abilities
*
.

Now, logically, if comparatively primitive Human Anthropoid Apes can Remote View between Planets, then more evolved species could Remote View between Stars (see below).

*
Barry J. Gibb,
ibid
.

Modern science also corroborates the claims of Mediums, concluding that all Consciousnesses are connected, and that every Consciousness is like an "antennae", that can "tune in" to those connections. Successful Mediums, like John Edwards, can "reduce the noise" in the own Minds, and key into the quiet "signals" sent by other Consciousnesses (including those of the deceased)*.

2. Intelligence coincides w/ both Telepathic Ability & Vulnerability

We have seen that Psychic Abilities (eg. Sixth Sense, Clairvoyance, Remote Viewing) correlate to increased brain activity in key regions, including the Frontal & Parietal Lobes (Sixth Sense), Temporal Lobes (Clairvoyance), & Occipital Lobes (RV). And, these key regions are specifically crucial for Consciousness & Intelligence:

The overall size of a person's brain is less important for
IQ Scores
than the amount of
Grey Matter
found in specific regions of the
Frontal, Temporal, Parietal, & Occipital Lobes
. Intriguingly, these findings imply
Intelligence
is not related to just one brain area, such as the "higher functioning"
Frontal Lobes
, as is often thought
*
.

Thus, the very Evolution of Higher Intelligence & Conscious Awareness is precisely what imparts vulnerability to, as well as capacity for, Psychic Abilities.

*
Barry J. Gibb,
ibid
., pg. 120.

3. Probable superior Intelligence, of more Evolutionarily advanced Aliens, should coincide w/ superior Telepathic Abilities

On Earth, animals' Encephalization Quotients (EQs) have steadily increased, over the past half-billion years*. Therefore, more Evolutionarily advanced Aliens probably possess comparatively bigger brains. And, more developed brains probably imbue them w/ more potent Telepathic Abilities (as per above).

*
John Billingham.
Life in the Universe
, pg. 263.
Note
: EQs correlate well w/ IQ -- and, hence,
Telepathic Abilities
(as per above)
.

4. Offense-Defense Theory analysis of proposed Psychic Warfare

Standard Strategic Offense-Defense Theory says that:

Mobility
innovations favor
Offense
, whereas
Firepower
innovations favor
Defense
...

Strategic Mobility
is the ability to transport military forces from the
Homeland
to a
Theater of Operations
, or from one
Theater
to another... greater
Strategic Mobility
allows the
Attacker
to expeditiously transport & supply its forces far from its own borders, thus negating the
Defender
's geographic advantage
...

Technological innovations that enhance
Firepower
capability are disproportionately advantageous to the
Defense
. First,
Firepower
allows the
Defender
to threaten the
Attacker
's concentration of forces before an attack. An
Attacker
typically needs a local advantage of combat power to pierce the
Defender
's forward defenses. Numerical superiority requires density; but, the greater density of forces provides more targets for defensive fire, and thus more attacker casualties. Second,
Firepower
favors
Defense
b/c it reduces the
Mobility
(
ie, Offensive Power
)
of the Attacker.
In the face of greater defensive fire, an
Attacker
must seek more armored protection
, cover, concealment, & dispersal -- all of which slow the
Attacker
's advance. Finally, defensive firepower forces the attacker to provide its own
Covering Fire
in the advance, which slows the attack b/c of added weight and time required to reposition
Covering Fire
*
.

Furthermore:

Nuclear Weapons & Terrorism
are the main cases of weapons that produce robust offense-defense effects
. The defense-dominance and
equalizing nature of
Nuclear Weapons
reflect the relative cheapness of maintaining a minimal nuclear deterrent compared to the high costs associated with offensive attack. Similarly,
Terrorism
confers offense-advantage because it does not require large amounts of traditional power to perpetrate, and is very difficult to defend against or deter
**
.

Note, too, that the energy required to accelerate a mere 10 lbs of Spacecraft, to ~90% the Speed of Light, is already about 100 megatons equivalent. Thus, the ratio of Energy Costs, from Inter-Stellar Invasion, to Nuclear Defense Deterrent, is probably billions to one.

*
Michael E. Brown, Owen R. Coté Jr.
Offense, Defense, and War
, pp. 373-375.

**
Rethinking Offense-Defense Theory: The Offense-Advantages of Terror
.
See
:

Thus:

  • Psychic Warfare -- cheap to perpetrate (cf. Terrorism), & offers virtually unlimited (Strategic) Mobility, favoring Offensive
  • Inter-Stellar Space Travel -- imposes extreme Strategic Mobility difficulties (eg. Resupply across thousands of light-years of Space & Time), dis-favoring Offensive
  • Nuclear Weapons -- very effective for Firepower, favoring Defense
In particular, by affording maximal Mobility, at minimal cost, Psychic Warfare would be the expected Weapon of First Resort, for all Telepathy-capable "Predatory" Alien Civilizations. And, conversely, the extreme Strategic Mobility penalties imposed by Inter-Stellar Space Travel would make actual physical Invasion the expected Weapon of Last Resort. Furthermore, such Inter-Stellar Expeditions could conceivably require many millennia to complete (cf. invading ~10,000 light-years, across the Galaxy, at ~90% the Speed-of-Light). And, as seen from human history, many millennia is surely sufficient for species to develop from stone spears, to Nuclear Weapons. Thus, even comparatively primitive & backwards species could develop potent Nuclear Weapons whilst any Alien Invasion Fleet was under way.

Taken together, these facts virtually require that any Predatory Alien Civilization would necessarily employ Psychic Warfare, to "soften up" & completely subdue rival sentient species, at Strategic Long Range, before any physical Invasion Force was actually deployed towards the target Star System.

5. Solving Fermi's Paradox by proposing the presence of "Consciousness-triggered Predator" Alien Civilization(s)

A. Triggered Predators

In 1950 AD, Physicist Enrico Fermi proposed his famous Fermi's Paradox:

The extreme age of the
Universe
, and its vast number of stars, suggest that if the Earth is typical,
Extra-Terrestrial Life
should be common. In an informal discussion in
1950 AD
, the
Physicist
Enrico Fermi questioned why, if a multitude of advanced
Extra-Terrestrial Civilizations
exist in the
Milky Way Galaxy
, evidence -- such as spacecraft or probes -- are not seen
*
.

Various solutions have been proposed. In particular, Predation explains the present lack of observations:

One reason why ETCs [Extra-Terrestrial Civilizations] might choose to keep quiet is
fear
. When an ETC broadcasts to space, it reveals its location, and perhaps level of technology. Any neighbors who are listening may be
aggressive
... Perhaps caution is a general trait among advanced intelligences
...

ETCs have either been prevented from arising by [
Predators
], wiped out by [
Predators
], or else are keeping quiet for fear of attracting [
Predators
]
... So, why have [
Predators
] silenced all other
Civilizations
, but left us alone? We could argue that
[
Predators
] destroy only
Technological Life
-forms, and need a "trigger" -- presumably the detection of
Radio Waves
-- before they begin to work
.
**
.

Thus, this "Predator Hypothesis" imposes a primitive Glass Ceiling upon emerging sentient species. To wit, the Milky Way Galaxy is proposed to be populated by an advanced Predatory Alien Civilization, that has already annihilated -- to wit, "Predated" -- all the unwary sentient species in our Galaxy.

*

**
Stephen Webb.
If the Universe Is Teeming with Aliens ... Where Is Everybody?: Fifty Solutions to the Fermi Paradox and the Problem of Extraterrestrial Life
, pp. 112-113.
Note
: Webb uses the word "Berserker" instead of "Predator", which word we have everywhere substituted for the original. In addition, note, too, that another of Webb's proposals is called "
They are here, and are meddling in Human affairs
".

B. Consciousness-Triggered Predators

All alleged emerging ETCs would clearly come from completely different Star Systems. And, they would probably be based upon completely different Bio-Chemistries*. But, despite their various Evolutionary backgrounds, all emerging ETCs should surely start to systematically study of the Stars scattered across the Cosmos. Indeed, this is precisely what would make emerging ETCs begin to be Space Capable -- and, hence, pose possible threats to the Space Dominance of our proposed Predatory Alien Civilization.

*
Barrie W. Jones.
The Search for Life Continued
, pp. 238-242.

So, the Systematic Study of the Stars, which focuses a sentient species' Consciousness out across the Cosmos, could quite conceivably be the "Psychic Trigger" which alerts our proposed Predatory Alien Civilization to the presence of potential threats -- thereby provoking Psychic Warfare, as a form of Territorial Aggression, from the Dominant ETC, who has clearly claimed the Cosmos for itself*.

*
On Earth, the
Systematic Study of the Stars
-- to wit, the
Science
of Astrology / Astronomy
-- began
about 10,000 years ago
, in the
Levant
, w/ the advent of
Farming
. For,
Farmers
must use the
Stars
to accurately reckon the
Seasons
, so as to plant
Crops
at the proper times of year.
Crop Domestication
developed, from the collection of
plant
-based food items, in primitive
Hunter-Gatherer
groups, around that region, after the end of the
Last Ice Age
. In such
Stone Age
societies, plant
Gathering
was expressly the province of
women
(while
men
Hunted
)
. Thus,
the first
Farmers
were women
. And, by being responsible for such a powerful progress in technology, which could generate much more
Food Energy
from the land, womens'
Social Status
inexorably increased, as
Hunting & Gathering
was forsaken for
Farming
. Thus,
women came to dominate human society, presiding over it as
Priestesses
, of first-ever founded
(fertility-based)
full-fledged organized
Religion
, the
Goddess Cult
,
today
called
Witchcraft
. Such Witches should be acknowledged as Mankind's first full-fledged
Scientists
, by beginning
Astrology / Astronomy
, and embarking upon the systematic study of the
Stars
. Now, according to our proposed
Predatory Alien Civilization Hypothesis
, these early
Witches
unknowingly alerted
The Predator
to our presence upon this planet, by their
Astrological
reckonings.

CONCLUSION:

By Predating all other emerging ETCs, The Predator, hereby proposed, keeps the Cosmos quiet, & completely barren of (competing) Space Explorations -- in perfect keeping w/ observations, and, thereby, explaining Fermi's Paradox. It follows further, from this analysis, that the Milky Way Galaxy is likely littered with the wrecked remains of previously "Telepathically Possessed", and so self-sabotaged, and now Extinct, ETCs. Human space-farers should, then, repeatedly observe, upon other planets, Archaeological remains of now-Extinct ETCs, who would appear to have "killed themselves off", through various forms of bizarre, unhealthy, and "obviously self-destructive" behaviors -- as if their Better Judgements & Senses had been completely co-opted, by Telepathic Possession.

An Intelligence, that was hundreds of thousands of years ahead of us, would have overcome the problems of manifesting in our world... Yes, it takes a bizarre form, but here they are.

Dr. John Mack, Prof. of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

(National Geographic Channel Phantom Quest -- the search for Extra-Terrestrials (VHS))

If we received a signal, from a Civilization that was thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of years more advanced, they might even appear Godlike to us.

Physicist Michio Kaku argues that Intelligent Aliens "will probably be Predators, b/c Predators are smarter than Prey", making it much more likely that advanced Intelligences arise from Predatory sentient species*.

I would however note that the same could be said of us, if one tribe of humans encountered another, both could say that the other are "predators" but doesn't necessarily mean they look at EVERYTHING and everyone as prey - just that they are grouped into the predator category because they are NOT prey.

Additionally, an older family member told me a few years before he died, he had been "into the occult" and paranormal and had a group or coven or something, that were constantly "at war" with some other occult group, seems like supposedly like in some other country, and were magically or psychically attacking each other, casting spells, etc. As you might guess, I took this with a pound of salt but didn't say much, but still, I guess it could apply to this topic.

According to Etymonline.com,

fanatic

c.1525, "insane person," from L. fanaticus "mad, enthusiastic, inspired by a god," originally, "pertaining to a temple," from fanum "temple," related to festus "festive" (see feast). Current sense of "extremely zealous," especially in religion, is first attested 1647. The noun is from 1650, originally in religious sense, of Nonconformists.

"A fanatic is someone who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." [Winston Churchill]

Thus, fanaticism is precisely the expected behavior of those who are Telepathically Possessed. For, their own Consciousnesses are completely over-whelmed by a powerful Telepathy. Thus, they cannot change their own mind -- it is already "made up", completely & deeply, by the Telepathic Possessor. And, they won't change the subject -- for they are forcefully, and fully, focused exclusively for the Goals & Will of their Telepathic Possessor.

CONCLUSION: Any hypothesis purporting Alien Psychic Warfare is being waged against Mankind probably predicts the ubiquitous presence of people behaving as if they're Telepathically Possessed -- to wit, fanaticism is surely the "observable footprint" of such Psychic Warfare.

As I previously pointed out in this thread:

According to the History Channel documentary UFO Hunters -- Nazi UFOs (TV), the Nazis built the first Flying Saucers during WWII, as part of their vast Wunderwaffen Projects. They were intended to drop Nazi Radiological Bombs upon New York, and other Allied cities, to win the war or force peace. The Nazis received the basic blueprints for these advanced flying machines, through the Mediums of the Vril Society. Those Mediums, through Telepathy, communed with "people from other worlds", to quote Hermann Oberth. Thus, Flying Saucers are human-built, but based upon E.T. technology, acquired Telepathically.

From the same thread:

Wouldn't it make more sense to assume that human beings are nowhere near the top of the evolutionary ladder? Then the question goes from 'why haven't we found them' to 'why have they stopped us from finding them'. Much more logical answers down that path.

Rough Draft

According to The Complete Idiot's Guide to Pet Psychic Communication, Humans can Telepathically communicate w/ animals.

CONCLUSION: Telepathic Communication can cross both the species, & Cognitive Capacity, barriers. This strongly suggests, that whereas relatively-intelligent Humans can communicate Psychically w/ relatively-less-intelligent animals, so too relatively-intelligent Aliens could communicate Psychically w/ relatively-less-intelligent Humans.

According to the same text (pg. 13):

Psychic Communication
, in its many forms, can occur at any distance
.
Telepathy
may occur between two beings that are face to face, or across the globe. Geography is irrelevant to
Telepathy

Witchcraft Curses could be attacks w/ concentrated Negative Psychic Energy

According to the documentary Arthur C. Clarke's World of Strange Powers -- the Roots of Evil (VHS), the use of "witchcrafts" to cast "curses" and heave "hexes" upon hated people is widespread around the world. The various examples depicted all revolved around ecstatic trances, drugs, animal sacrifices, and the use of Effigies which would be mauled & mutilated in particular ways to induce particular types of symptoms in the target.

Medically, such Voodoo & Witchcraft can actually "literally scare people to death". Autopsies of patients apparently killed by such practices often reveal, that their Adrenal Glands are completely drained, as if all their body's Adrenaline had been dumped in a single, terrifying, Flight or Fight response. Then, w/o any Adrenaline to boost their Heart Rates, their Blood Pressures dropped precipitously, thereby causing death. Other symptoms were frequently Psycho-Somatic, such as Asthma, Skin Rashes, & Loss of Appetite.

Therefore, Arthur C. Clarke concluded that such Curses could be explained medically, w/o any need to invoke Para-Psychological Effects, but as purely Psychological Effects. He assumed that the victim would have to know that they were being targeted, since it is not Occult powers, but the perceptions of hostility, that harm health.

TELEPATHIC INTERPRETATION: If Psychic Phenomena are involved in the casting of Curses, then the seemingly simplest scientific explanation could be, that all the complex & complicated Witchcraft Rituals are merely means to amplify, and focus, Hatred -- to wit, Negative Psychic Energy -- towards the target. Indeed, several Voodoo Curses explained in the program required burying sacrificed birds' ashes, or dragging a dead rattlesnake across, near the houses of the hated targets. Such acts could conceivably serve as physical reflections of Psychic efforts to focus concentrated Negative Psychic Energy towards the target.

Soviet Psychics Telepathically directed Negative Psychic Energies towards targets:

According to the ABC documentary World of Discovery -- Powers of the Russian Psychics (VHS), during the 1978 AD World Chess Championship (Baguio, Philippines), between the Soviet champion A. Karpov & ex-Soviet "defector" V. Korchnoi, the Soviet KGB deployed a detachment of "specialists" to "influence Korchnoi & destroy his ability to win". One such specialist, a well-known Hypnotist named Dr. Zhukar, sat silently in the Chess Hall, and tried to Telepathically distract Korchnoi. Korchoi reported receiving Negative Thoughts, such as "you are a traitor to the Soviet people"; "you must lose"; "you should stop playing"; "you should not fight".

CONCLUSION:

Telepaths can engage in Psychic Attacks, by focusing Negative Psychic Energies towards targets. Furthermore, since such "Psychic Cursings" are quire common across the globe, being employed ubiquitously by human populations, then perhaps such Psychic Cursings are also quite common amongst other sentient species.

Thus, the proposition that Intelligent Alien Telepaths are Psychically Attacking Mankind, w/ such Psychic Cursings, merely assumes that such sentient species are Telepathically Capable (like Humans), and that they concentrate Negative Psychic Energies towards others (again, like Humans, often employing "Telepathic Hate Crimes"). Therefore, the hereby proposed Telepathic Predator Hypothesis is not nearly as outlandish as it might first sound.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg2032...brain-size.html

Some 2.5 million years ago, our ancestors' brains expanded from a mere 600 cubic centimetres to about a litre. Two new studies suggest it is no fluke that this brain boom coincided with the onset of an ice age. Cooler heads, it seems, allowed ancient human brains to let off steam and grow. Cooler heads, it seems, allowed ancient human brains to let off steam and grow

For all its advantages, the modern human brain is a huge energy glutton, accounting for nearly half of our resting metabolic rate. About a decade ago, biologists David Schwartzman and George Middendorf of Howard University in Washington DC hypothesised that our modern brain could not have evolved until the Quaternary ice age started, about 2.5 million years ago. They reckoned such a large brain would have generated heat faster than it could dissipate it in the warmer climate of earlier times, but they lacked evidence to back their hypothesis.

CONCLUSION: This rapid "encephalization" of proto-humans, beginning about 2.5 million years ago, probably "triggered" the Psychic Attacks, of the alleged Alien Telepathic Predator, according to this hypothesis.

This is a conceivably testable prediction -- evidence of "Telepathic interference" upon this planet probably shouldn't predate this period, according to this hypothesis.

Erm that conclusion is baseless speculation and is of no scientific value. And how exactly is it testable when there is no evidence of psychics.

Sorry but this thread is nothing but an abuse of science with hideously bad pseudo-science.

I think it's a fallacy to assume that the solution to Fermi's paradox is predatory civilizations. It seems much more likely to me for extremely advanced civilizations to be living in a state of harmony and peace. Not only is there no inherent reason for such an advanced race to be offensive but their capability for destruction would be too great to overcome if any trace of hostile intent remained.

In the OP, I argued for a "Consciousness Trigger". I also cited sources linking Psychic Abilities -- and the evidences thereof -- to the brain structures associated w/ Intelligence.

Thus, as brains became bigger, and Homo Erectus' Intelligence increased, so too would his "proto-Psychic" capacities...

along w/ the risk of "telegraphing" (to wit, "Telepathing" ??) his presence to the alleged Psychically-aware "Telepathic Predator" alien species.

Still I am loving Life and will not back down in battle.

I have battled with some alleged psychics on these boards, and I am yet to be hurt. Judging by their reactions though...I digress. Seems like their 'powers' cannot stand up to my natural non-psychic abilities. :lol:

If that's any indication of anything, it is that if there is any psychic warfare going, seems like those without any 'psychic' powers are safe B) Yay, battle on!

Proof of psychic abilities? Hardly. I've only read the first section so far, but if the same results cannot be obtained independently then there was nothing to begin with.

Chimpanzees use stone tools, and fashion sharpened spears. Chimps & Humans diverged, evolutionarily, about 6 million years ago*.

*
;

This strongly suggests, that the Last Common Ancestor (LCA) of Chimps & Humans made & used stone tools & spears, before about 6 million years ago*. So, if tool manufacture -- the intentional alteration of natural elements (stone, wood) for use as tools -- could be considered a "Consciousness Trigger", then Extra-Terrestrial Telepathy could have detected the incipient intelligence, of that LCA, before about 6 million years ago. Note that the conscious intent, to manufacture tools, is surely a specific (and advanced) state of Consciousness which could, therefore, qualify as a "Consciousness Trigger". It may also be relevant, that that LCA likely had a matriarchal culture, along the lines of the modern Bonobos**.

*
One of the earliest tool-types made by the LCA was likely the spear -- to wit, a weapon (see following footnote). To suggest some sort of scenario, perhaps that primitive
proto-Hominin
sought some stick, to scratch some itch, but poked itself in the process, prompting the comprehension, that (sharpened) sticks worked well as "pokers" [
cf. Chimpanzees
poke at
Bush Babies
w/ sharpened spears].

Chimpanzees use stone tools, and fashion sharpened spears. Chimps & Humans diverged, evolutionarily, about 6 million years ago*.

*
;

This strongly suggests, that the Last Common Ancestor (LCA) of Chimps & Humans made & used stone tools & spears, before about 6 million years ago*. So, if tool manufacture -- the intentional alteration of natural elements (stone, wood) for use as tools -- could be considered a "Consciousness Trigger", then Extra-Terrestrial Telepathy could have detected the incipient intelligence, of that LCA, before about 6 million years ago. Note that the conscious intent, to manufacture tools, is surely a specific (and advanced) state of Consciousness which could, therefore, qualify as a "Consciousness Trigger". It may also be relevant, that that LCA likely had a matriarchal culture, along the lines of the modern Bonobos**.

*
One of the earliest tool-types made by the LCA was likely the spear -- to wit, a weapon (see following footnote). To suggest some sort of scenario, perhaps that primitive
proto-Hominin
sought some stick, to scratch some itch, but poked itself in the process, prompting the comprehension, that (sharpened) sticks worked well as "pokers" [

No it couldn't. It could qualify as making it up as you go along.

I did not read all of this but will later..too much at the moment. From what I did read I can see where the person is coming from now whether I agree with it is a whole different story. I do think that this isn't just some 'ability' I believe that this inutition to be able to be clairvoyant, rv, and all of these other things are anicent pre-wired in our DNA and were used back then for survival more than they are today actually. My own opinion on it, so take it however you like. I do see children, a few that are extremely 'talented' and their parents have come to me or vic versa for other reasons. There are levels to what someone is capable of...to what degree can they sense things. I can count on my fingers the list of children (not adults/teens) that stick out in my mind we are talking 4-11 yr olds. I mean extremely good, maybe not the best, but recently got sent some info on an eight year old who lets just say can 'see' things and is validated. The problem is children don't always understand what they are doing, which infact can be the best to 'see' things because they aren't overthinking.

Bad news peopole can use them for harm/testing. I have had over 3 million in medical testing, no luckily I haven't had to pay all of those fees cause of insurance. I will tell you that I've had extensive testing on all scans, including one not listed on your list a SPECT scan which is one of the top scans avaliable today. Something interesting that did stick out to them, was that my cingulete more medial gyrus I believe (id have to look back in the papers) was lit up more compared to the average. They didn't know what to really make of that, though everything else was completely normal and no mental disease what so ever.

Do I believe there is a 'psychic warefare' lol...maybe, but it's more of there is a war any where you go. It's not so much it's a psychc warfare lol in that it is simply just a war in any other for gain of money, but most important power. Over the years people have inboxed me, written me letters ( a few), some even in broad daylight ont he streets have talked to me about psychic warefare..I kid you not. Some of them it worked into the conversation, others just for some odd reason asked me outright on the street as a complete stranger. I have to admit some of the people freaked me out cause of how they approached me.

I am just saying some people get way to worked up over things, and people need to be calm and collective. Take it not as some mind game to take over the world (laughs) but rather another form of simple technique of anicent communication. People just blow everything out proportion, CHILL!

(1) [bottlenose] Dolphins are the 2nd most intelligent (Terrestrial) species:

Scientists say dolphins should be treated as 'non-human persons'

Dolphins have been declared the world’s second most intelligent creatures after humans, with scientists suggesting they are so bright that they should be treated as “non-human persons”.

Studies into dolphin behaviour have highlighted how similar their communications are to those of humans and that they are brighter than chimpanzees. These have been backed up by anatomical research showing that dolphin brains have many key features associated with high intelligence.

(2) [bottlenose] Dolphins are smarter than the LCA of Chimps & Humans

Evolutionarily, intelligence increases over the eons, even if (significantly) slower in some species. Thus, Chimpanzees today are surely (somewhat) smarter than the Last Common Ancestor (LCA), of Chimps & Humans, who lived about 6 million years ago. So, if Bottlenose Dolphins (today) are smarter than Chimps (today), then Bottlenose Dolphins (today) are smarter than that LCA (6 Mya). Given that Bottlenose Dolphins, along w/ Chimps (and most species), have (probably) evolved more slowly, it seems that only the comparatively explosive brain growth, of the line leading from the LCA to modern man, over the last 6 Myr, has propelled man to the top spot of (terrestrial) species. Before 6 Mya, (Bottlenose) Dolphins may have actually been the smartest (terrestrial) species.

(3) [bottlenose] Dolphins did not "trigger" E.T. Telepathic attack

There is no evidence, that [bottlenose] Dolphins suffer the symptoms of imposed telepathic presence(s). This is in complete contrast, to the claims, of many modern humans.

CONCLUSION:

Before about 6 Mya, [bottlenose] Dolphins were the smartest (terrestrial) species, upon this particular planet. And, yet, they did not "trip the trigger" of E.T. Telepathic attack. But, the conscious intent, to form & fashion tools & weapons -- even from a "second-rate species", in intelligence terms -- did "trip the trigger" of E.T. Telepathic attack. This strongly suggests, that the conscious intent, to form and fashion tools & weapons, is the specific state-of-mind that triggers the telepathy of the E.T.s*.

wow. I have yet to see any evidence of any sort of telepatic attack. Care to provide some?

They aren't terrestrial, they are marine. Secondly you can't say they are the 2nd most intelligent species or compare them to extinct or extant species. It is subject bs.

And they don't even have the most complex behaviour and learning patterns within dolphin, orca do.

Utter rubbish and a horrific abuse of biology.

In complete contrast to the temporary use, of naturally occurring objects, in aggression displays (eg. Chimps pulling on tree limbs & swinging branches as clubs), the conscious crafting of a weapon requires planning & pre-meditation ("malice & forethought"), for future aggression. Now, pre-meditation means "meditate ahead-of-time". And, meditation -- meaning the "act of meditating, continuous calm thought upon some subject" -- is a typical technique for tapping into transcendental (trance) states, & smacks of Telepathy. Thus, the pre-meditation, of consciously crafting a weapon ("meditate" means "to make measurements" [as opposed to grabbing any old branch, say]), could conceivably be a specific state-of-mind identifiable as a "Telepathic trigger".

Bottlenose Dolphins are not Extra-Terrestrial lifeforms -- therefore, they are utterly Terrestrial. They are an aquatic, Terrestrial, species.

And, according to the source I cited, BNDs have the second largest brain:body ratio of any animals upon this planet.

No they are MARINE. Terrestrial only refers to life on land, not in the sea.

Brain to body size ratio is not indicative of intelligence. Brains control almost everything in the body and in dolphin large part are involved in thermoregulation and in echolocation.

Terrestrial - Of, or pertaining to, land as opposed to "aquatic."
