No need to make things up. I just rediscovered my copies of ‘explaining the unexplained’ by J.Eysenck & C. Sargent. They have a good stab at things on the fringe!
Obviously there is more to ‘energy’ healing than just standing with hands outstretched sensing the aura. Like most things you have to ‘work it’ to take things to the next level. This is where the ‘o’ level sceptical physicists kick off at seminars or discussions; “ that defies all the laws of science”. What laws exactly?
Anyway, there are doctors and physicists who do healing and who don’t seem to have a problem.
The notion of a signal carrier shouldn’t be difficult to grasp, or how do homing pigeons ‘home’? And why do birds have an apparent aversion to microwave radiation? Maybe they just dislike the aesthetics of vertical array housings?
It’s when you start talking about premonitions that things get a bit too ‘fuzzy’ for conventional science.
How do you perceive an event prior to it’s cause? This conflicts with the ‘arrow of time’......or does it?
I think energy healing, when called that, is where problems arise.
If you said water divining that doesn't seem to get the same response & as previously mentioned has been tried by some people on here with success.
I personally feel that empathic response is probably more likely as it has it's basis in Caring, but as you say scientifically measuring this is nigh on impossible.
This may well be the same inner energy you're describing, or Signal carrier as you say maybe? Empathy definitely works in Gestalt Psychotherapy & is pretty well documented as a healing force, although truly understood? I don't think so, words aren't enough. I've read no end of books that mention empathy, but none that really describe the actual active force. Just that it is a thing & it works.
So the problem I see here, is explaining these concepts using the English language & not the actual concepts themselves that you talk about.
I thought we were keeping this on one thing at a time Edd?
I think there may be an explanation of why birds "home" & swallows make it to places like S. Africa, I believe it may be something to do with Magnetics but not sure.
Microwave radiation? Is that what my kitchen microwave produces? I'm really not keen on that myself never minds the birds. It's ok for warming up yesterdays chilli, but when you start to look at the wavelengths etc & how they manage to stay contained in the box. My only interest is in the fact that they stay in there & don't sterilise my Nads, although I've got to admit my interest is waning there also as I succumb to my own "arrow of time".
Premonitions, I just have no idea fuzzy or otherwise, never had one so very limited experience & not really able to comment because of this. I think that those probably belong in horror movies myself, but just my opinion.
All the best Paul.
