: I suppose most of the synics on this page don't even belive in astroplaining, but while your looking through a telescope, I'm looking through my eye.

: got questions?

_______________ ***I believe that there are certain circumstances which can cause our mechanisms to be driven by something other than consious rationalization, mostly in extreamly stressful situations, life threatening, high levels of fear... I do not know what takes over, but it is probaly a combination of all of our senses being brought into thier highest level of efficiency combined with intuitive deductions based upon experiances and instincts. These combinations when called upon by our body and not our "thinking personality" can accomplish what otherwise would seem like miricals, adreniline can enable otherwise normal people to have access to high levels of endurance and strength, as well as triggering an auto-pilot program for survival. Many people have never even experianced such a burst of internal drug manufacturing and program overrides, and even fewer have experianced the full blown effects. Thrill seekers are those whom once they have experianced the rush and clarity of thier present awareness, hunger for more, although I believe the full blown experiance cannot be manipulated in such ways, although it (thrill seeking) probably does contribute to an easier jump over to the automatic/natural one, as well as allow slightly more control (a more detailed process of analysis of the situation and its probable outcomes given the factors known and actions being considered), thus being beneficial to the survivalist/fittest. I have had visions, seemingly caused "insignificant miricals" and some of my dreams have come true. However, I also believe that as far as seeing the future in actuallity is impossible, and that it is a form of self-fullfilling prophecy combined with our tailoring of perceptions to fit certain schemas that allow many of us to believe we have actually experianced the future. THE only other possibility I can think of is that (and I just now thought of this) everything in the universe is static/unchanging and that consuiosness is what moves along the paths of strongest attraction, although this does not mean that each reality is set in stone, but only the possibility of that reality, but which are further held together by a fabric that does not allow but so much change in any given distance from any point, meaning that reality would seem to flow smoothly and not change radically, so the time it takes for an awareness to travel across certain possibilities constrains radical shifts in the awarenesses perception of what reality is, although it is only one of the infinite possibilities, restricted only by the distance/time across all the other slighty differing ones which actually exist but are not accessable to it at this point in its being, and this would allow rebirths, reincarnations, visions, miricals, heavens, hells, great lives and not so good ones, high inteligence and simple basic awarness without reasoning.... But that is all just a little imagination from one who enjoys playing with possibilities and blurting them out to whoever will listen and pretend that it is extreamly interesting, THANKS! During my search for truth, I have not been an armchair mystic or believer, and this has cuased me to conclude that all (or almost all) things can and will be understood if we can survive long enough, but that it cannot be all beause the universe is constantly changing, and wee as a species will not last forever, and it is even possible that the laws which currently govern the universe we know could be radically different after the next big bang, if we cannot escape and pull some of our reality into the next one when we reinhabit the old saction. Can you give me some proof of esp, astroplaining... I am one who will not accept a demonstrated proof under the prover's conditions, so it would have to be a real good trick! Have you experianced it, what happened.........
