Why would one of the world’s most successful and innovative technology corporations research a highly controversial subject and risky future product opportunity such as E.S.P. (extrasensory perception) and then – oh by the way – tell the world they proved it existed?
Huh… unlikely? What company and why isn’t this more widely known? That’s just what I thought. I came across this fun fact while searching for information to help me understand a strange series of events that had occurred six years ago this month. Coincidentally, I happened to be working for this company when I found out.
Described as “anomalous processes of information or energy transfer”, Psi phenomenon is a very controversial subject. On one side, scientists, physicists, and PhDs attesting to its reality, and on the other, their opponents who question the methods of study, the resulting data and testimonies.
knowledge is power
The monumental power of electricity, now well controlled, was at one time an anomalous process of energy transfer. Like electricity, arguably the most significant development in man kinds history from lightning strike to cell phone, things that seem impossible to dream of today often become the reality of the future.
What does electricity, a subject so obviously understood today, have to do with other anomalous processes such as having a thought about a loved one and then coincidentally receiving a call from them at the same time? How about those gut-feelings or intuitions that so many times has saved a life – or many lives – under highly unusual circumstances? What about those unsettling accounts of communication at the moment of a loved ones death with the loved one far away?
It’s understandable that for many of us the last example appears quite fantastic, but those gut feelings and intuitions have more to them than we realize. Imagine the idea that roughly only 200 years ago most of the world had no idea that lightning could one day, metaphorically speaking, be put into a bottle (the Walkman, Android, iPhone, etc.). Wielding electricity in this sense would have been considered magic.
What might have inspired us to attempt to attempt to wield lightning like Zeus atop Mt. Olympus?
Some suggest ancient discoveries of mystical or esoteric knowledge as a good place to begin our hunt. Dr. Electricity himself, Benjamin Franklin, without any doubt studied the geometric sciences of man hidden in the archives of secret societies. He wasn’t the only one. He was preceded by other seekers of secret wisdom: people like William Gilbert, John Dee and Francis Bacon, all of whom had close connections with Queen Elizabeth I and had significant impact on the world. It’s all about who you know, right?
The same goes for many other Earth changing individuals such as Copernicus, Galileo (remember what happened to him?) and Alexandria’s bold beauty, Hypatia (Remember what happened to her?). These greats reinterpreted ancient texts and delivered the hidden messages back to the world in new form. The who’s who list is long and impressive, with each giving credit to …read more
