In 1982, a United States Army Colonel with his PhD in charge of Delta Army, came to my next door neighbor, Robert Monroe of the Monroe Institute in Virginia. We got 25 people together to investigate the rumor that there was some connection between mind and reality following Intelligence that Russia was investigation this. The Army Colonel stood in the center of the circle and within 20 minutes he had 23 of the 25 of us bending heavy stainless steel into every conceivable kind of shape. A little 5 year old boy cork screwed his fork from the tine and on down to the shank in a perfect, very tight cork screw.Coming
Here I'm going to have to use my same old examples but I won't use anything for an example I haven't taken part in. Remember in 1982 was it, a United States Army Colonel with his PhD came to my next door neighbor, Robert Monroe who has the Monroe Institute in Virginia, and we got 25 people together and the United States Army Colonel he was in charge of Delta Army, was set up by the Army to investigate the rumor that there was some connection between mind and reality and they only set that up because they had heard through Intelligence that Russia was investigation this.
They set this up back in the 70's and this United States Army Colonel with his PhD in charge of Delta Company, a really smart bunch of army officer, came to Bob Monroe’s and 25 of us, age 5 through 70, sat around in a circle and the Army Colonel stood in the center of the circle and within 20 minutes he had 23 of the 25 of us, two people didn't do it or couldn't it, 23 of the 25 of us bending heavy stainless steel into every conceivable kind of shape. The young people were the first ones to do it. A little 5 year old boy, now he's out of my time scheme, this should really only happen around 6 or 7, he was precocious, you see there are no real limits on any of this, but he cork screwed his fork from the tine and on down to the shank in a perfect, very tight cork screw, and it's a very heavy and thick stainless steel fork.
You can't do this mechanically because the metal will fatigue and snap at some point. And then it went around the room all these people doing, I saw children, we watched do that and we saw children tying knots into knives and rolling the handles of spoons up into the bowls and so forth. At a sudden point the metal gets very warm and very flexible and you can do anything with it you want.
Now a friend of mine at the University of Melbourne in Australia, a Physicist, and hearing about all of these had been for several years bending metal inside sealed glass cases. He would take a round tubular glass and put a steel bar inside it and he would simply stroke the glass case and the steel bar at some point, he never knew when it would happen, would contort into various shapes, tie knots in itself which were impossible within the confines and so on.
The metal urges working with him showed me spectrographs of it that proved that the metal, once it had been bent in this fashion, changed its whole chemical molecular structure as opposed to metal bent by artificial or mechanical means which brings about fracturing of the surface and so on.
In 1976 I believe, no I stand to be corrected on that, the Nobel Loiret Josephson, Brian Josephson Nobel Loiret in Physics at a laboratory in England had a young English boy there, they worked with him for many weeks all wired up to an electroencephalograph and body sensors and so forth, they would surround him with a dozen Physicists and Psychologists and place a bar of metal or steel generally out from him, say twelve feet away, and he would concentrate on it and at a certain point he'd give a little twitch and the bar of steel would contort into various shapes, occasionally would disappear and they were trying in another room in the laboratory.
Brian Josephson was very shook up by this. He was a Nobel Loiret in Physics and he's made the statement, and he made the mistake of stating this publicly, he said we must revise the law of Physics; they don't cover how things really are. They sent this young boy over to the University of Toronto; a Dr. Joel Whitan worked with him for another six weeks or so under exactly the same conditions and found exactly the same parallel of events. They could work only with steel, that was simply the medium for it. They found that every time the steel would contort or move and the boy had no idea what was going to happen, he couldn't direct it, he couldn't shape it in any form, or predict it, but when the steel bent the boy's brain registered movements in the cerebellum, which is connected with movement, and in the central reptilian structure here, the one dealing with the physical world itself. And so if simply part of the brain operated in another part of the brain and this was then registering in the external world. Now why would it register in the external world?
If you recall yesterday we were talking about fields of intelligence and how fields of intelligence, mathematical intelligence as Gardner speaks of them, all of these various field of intelligence, have to be universals on which the brain draws. This is that frequency realm on which the brain draws, they Carl Prebrum spoke of it however it aggregates into groupings according to the intelligence or the ability or the history of our planet that it's dealing with.
Now those are the intellectual fields we can call them, or the intelligence fields. There are also emotional fields and boy if you don't think they're emotional fields you're really only half alive. Haven't you ever walked into a room and you can feel the entire emotional feel of that room? Do they need to tell you that they're all at each other's throats even though it's silent in there, no you know it, so do children. They live in the emotional fields of their parents.
Then there are the physical fields that the primary reptilian structure deals with. Our brain is presenting us with our physical world. These are the ones the Physicists can deal with, that they call quantum physics. But what about the emotional fields that give rise to this? The relational fields that bring about relationship of the energies. What about the great causal fields that give rise even to those energies? They can't deal with that with their instrumentation and so they discount it and say it doesn't exist. And so as a result for Brian Josephson says well we must revise our laws of physics. No. The laws of physics apply perfectly well to physical process, but they will not apply to the parallel processes inherent within higher evolutionary structures.
In 1983 wasn't it Bob Jahn, Dean of this School of Engineering at Princeton University, Ph.D. in Physics, now ahead of some of the biggest operations at NASA, controlling huge sums of money, one of our most brilliant Physicists. We were all together at an educational conference at University of California Berkeley and Bob Jahns got up and talked about his anomalies project, whether anomaly means puzzle or riddle, enigma, something we don't know about, and he simply tackled all the anomalies that science was afraid to go near and spent ten years on this project and finally published this huge book in about 1987-88 on the margins of reality. They had run thousands upon thousands and thousands of test and they found that even people brought in right off the street could radically alter the functioning of electronic equipment without touching it and all of these things that he proved by thousands of trials and tests and all of the rest of the academic world said well he was a good Physicist in his time you see.
So again the system moves to protect its integrity as it is and constantly people are trying to break through and expand the scientific process up into what they don't realize. Up into the higher evolutionary structures of the brain. All of this is simply a part of concrete operational thinking. Are you following this? So the child would be able to do whatever the model structures would present for them. But, if we'll look closely, if you'll read Bob Jahns and we'll talk a little bit later about the work of Bob Jahns in remote viewing, Russel Targ and some other Physicists, but if you'll look at that work always what happens is subject to a high degree of chance.
Always what happens, the individuals involved never are quite connected with it. There is a certain element of the ido-savant in all this paranormal phenomena. The ido-savant to remember with his I.Q. of 25, if you furnish the right stimulus, here it simply comes through that field. But he has no control of it and he doesn't know how it happens. All this paranormal stuff that we're talking about, no one knows how it happens. They only know if they give themselves over to it and allow it to happen, it happens through them, but not because of them. Do you see what I mean?
So this simply indicates a potential of the human mind brain structure, perhaps not even a potential we are intended by nature to develop, but it's there to let us know that we're not hinged in by any restriction at all. Once I found myself for over an hour completely superior to the effects of fire on flesh, nothing was ever the same to me again. Once I realized that I could under certain circumstances bend stainless steel and the kids who do this, after a while do it without touching the steel at all, I couldn't do that. I didn't get to that point. Once that happens, you know that you're not limited as the ordinary academic viewpoint is we're not just Skinner box pigeons or naked apes as the academic world has presented us to be. We have something vastly more within us than that.
