I don't think any of your examples fall under anything that cannot be explained through other means. Do you have any experience with real energetic phenomena from your training that aren't psychological in nature?

Sorry, not sure what you mean...

Can't honestly answer that anymore, because I really think all of them are "psychological", in one way or another.

BTW have you read about neuroplasticity? Very interesting stuff.

Thanks for the neuroplasticity link, Dimitri. It is indeed very interesting.

Re: Distant Mental Communication Research

The linked article describes interesting research in this field of study, particularly in the monitoring of brain activity during the 'send' and 'receive' phases of distant communication between research participants. The question remains, however, whether or not the data collected generally represents the same phenomenon of extrasensory situational awareness and response which is the subject of this thread. Simply stated, does the ESA phenomenon function differently in uncontrolled and unexpected circumstances than it does when test subjects are consciously approaching the process with deliberate attempts to generate a desired outcome? -shrug-

Much of what is discussed in this video, Alterations of Consciousness in Sports, is directly relevant to the topic of this thread, so I am presenting it here for your consideration. :)

ESP/PSI

Postby Doc Stier on Fri May 27, 2016 10:13 am

ESP and Personality Traits

Beginning in the early 1940s numerous attempts have been made to correlate experimental ESP performance with individual differences in subjects' personality and attitudinal characteristics. A series of studies with high school students in India by B. K. Kanthamani and K. Ramakrishna Rao has given further insight into the personality traits associated with psi-hitters and psi-missers.

These particular traits are not suprising, since people who frustrate themselves in the course of their other affairs are quite likely to behave the same way with regard to psi. It is much harder to define the personality of someone who expresses no ESP ability and whose scores will always approximate chance. For example, many people who indicate a fair amount of spontaneous ESP experience, and even professional psychics (who may have at least some ability) often do not score well in a laboratory.

Positive ESP Scores
warm, sociable
good natured, easy going
assertive, self-assured
tough
enthusiastic
talkative
cheerful
quick, alert
adventuresome, impulsive
emotional
carefree
realistic, practical
relaxed
composed

Negative ESP Scores
tense
excitable
frustrated
demanding
impatient
dependent
sensitive
timid
threat-sensitive
shy
withdrawn
submissive
suspicious
depression prone

Spidey Senses

Postby Doc Stier on Sat Jul 02, 2016 1:35 pm

SPIDEY SENSE

By Mike Mowbray

The so-called ‘spidey sense’ or ‘spider sense’ generally refers to an extraordinary ability to sense imminent danger, a kind of ‘sixth sense’ attributed to the comic-book superhero Spider-Man – though the term long ago escaped the confines of Peter Parker and his web-slinging alter-ego’s fictional universe to enter into popular usage and animate the popular imagination.

The ‘spidey sense’ reveals itself in a curiously varied amalgam of guises in both the comics and spin-offs, though Spider-Man appears, for the most part, to keep it a secret. It is as versatile as its possessor, though not obviously a reflection of any specifically arachnid sensory capability. The ‘spidey-sense’ is commonly represented as manifesting an “itching” or “tingling” feeling at the base of Spider-man’s skull. It is also suggested that it “alerts him to personal danger in proportion to the severity of that danger”. The ‘spidey sense’ thus implies a kind of intelligence, capable of parsing surroundings, identifying and critically evaluating a possible threat at seemingly pre- or sub-conscious levels and furnishing this information instantaneously – if not before the fact – to his conscious mind. Both the temporal and spatial dimensions of this ‘sense’ ability are ambiguous, as it is represented alternately as working at close range and apparently within ‘normal’ time to help Spider-Man escape peril in combat or avoid an ambush, and as working across immense distances (it once warns him of an intergalactic super-villain deploying a deadly device in another solar system), and possibly as even permitting a certain amount of extraordinary insight into the immediate future.

Given his extraordinary ‘spider-speed’ and his ‘spider-grip’, which allows him to adhere to most surfaces at any angle, even upside-down, the spider-senses allow the web-slinging hero to escape all manner of immediate dangers, i.e an attacking enemy, a thrown object, even a hail of gunfire, by a seemingly instinctual exercise of some uncanny reflex. The connection between Spider-Man’s warning sense and his reflexes is such that the ‘spidey-sense’ can trigger a reaction even when the hero is “asleep or stunned,” and it permits him the ability to “casually dodge attacks up to and including automatic-weapons fire” or a point-blank pistol shot. In the face of such imminent threats, Spider-Man simply reacts where a normal person would have been caught by surprise.

But the spatially and temporally immediate hazards thus more easily avoided demonstrate only a limited range of the ‘spidey sense’ or senses. It also furnishes a degree of spatial awareness that can be compared to the ‘radar-sense’ of fellow Marvel superhero Daredevil (a character, also marked by a radioactive encounter, whose blindness is well-compensated by the enhancement of all his other senses and the substitution for sight of the radar-sense, which is “like touching everything at once”):

When he is temporarily blinded, Spider-Man learns to emulate this ability and navigate without his eyesight. Even under normal conditions, his spider-sense helps him navigate darkened rooms, instinctively avoiding obstacles or hazards, or potentially noisy or unstable floorboards, walls or ceilings that may betray his presence.

The ‘spidey-sense’ seemingly has a directional component and “can guide him to or away from hidden weapons and disguised enemies”. It can also help ensure that he keeps his secret identity as a fly-by-night crime-fighter under wraps, as it “alerts him to observers or cameras when changing into or out of his costume”. While the mechanism by which the ‘spidey-sense’ operates are never really articulated in the various media appearance of the Spider-Man character, there is at least one instance that presents a possible clue. Parker himself – a bit of a technical whiz, having also designed the web-shooters that allow him to swing through the cartoon metropolis, net hapless crooks and combat enemies – develops ‘spider tracers’, which emit a signal to which he is sensitive, providing an elusive suggestion that the nature of the ‘spidey-sense’ at least includes the potential to pick up certain radio frequencies.

Derived from the “Spidey Sense” of the comic book superhero Spiderman, it is generally used to mean a vague but strong sense of something being wrong, dangerous, or suspicious, a security situation.

“He looked like a student, but something about his dirty shoes and the way he tried to open a locked door totally set off my Spidey sense, so I called campus security.”

Part of the intrigue of this popular hero is his uncanny ability to sense when something is about to happen”. Ample evidence of the ubiquity of casting what otherwise might be considered an intuitive hunch (if not dumb luck) is to be found elsewhere as well. A recent court case in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan, for example, prompted a legal opinion on whether or not an police officer’s “spidey sense” – an officer’s own choice of words in testifying about the feeling of suspicion he experienced upon questioning three Saskatoon youths in response to a report of gang members frequenting a particular area – furnishes legal grounds to justify the detention and search of an individual. Provincial Court Judge Daryl Labach ruled that it does not.

“The officer said that his ‘spidey sense’ was going off. Spidey sense, whatever that term may mean, is hardly enough to justify the further detention of the accused, especially when the accused was not doing anything illegal and was not acting nervously or inappropriately, but simply standing there”.

In sum, in the comic-book universe, the ‘spidey-sense’ appears to denote an amalgam of abilities, combining an enhanced, nigh-infallible version of the intuitive hunches or premonitions of danger that many people experience with a species of clairvoyance or paroptic vision, potentially characterized as a kind of ‘radar-sense’ (also somehow sensitive to particular radio frequencies) that furnishes an effective spatial awareness in and of itself. The two components converge in the case of immediate threats (the attacking enemy, thrown object or hail of gunfire), where danger is physically manifest in the immediate environment.

Edited for brevity and thread topic relevance.

Well, my take is that there are more than 5 senses, in any case. "Spidey sense" when it comes to danger (or "sensing" danger) is similar to sensing attraction, love, hate, even indifference. And then, like the generally recognized senses, these other (sub-conscious) senses can be strengthened by experience -which provides the conscious context for those senses.

One has to have gone through the 'scenario training' over time regarding situational awareness!

My personal example is surveillance and counter surveillance training, where if you have experienced the behavioural and observational cues, you know (gut feeling) that something is amiss.
It isn't something you can logically though you know what is 'next" and you try to avoid it! You know what to avoid, when to avoid, how to spot 'tails', etc within the context of location and goals. Turning a corner you can expect the adversary and he isn't there to spot you a drink or talk about Snaggle Puss! Individuals gauge their own understanding with what they learned and adapr per their subject understanding.

Instinctual Gut Feelings

Postby Doc Stier on Wed Aug 10, 2016 4:30 pm

How Do We Know When Our Gut Feelings Are Reliable? Can you Trust a Gut Feeling?

How do we know when our gut feelings are reliable? Is there a way to distinguish trustworthy intuitions from irrational feelings and biases? These are questions that we see people frequently pondering in blog posts and one that my colleague Robert Sterling and I have studied for some time in ourselves and many others in career and personal counseling.
Irrational feelings are our emotions, not the feelings in our guts, although unfortunately often confused. Let me explain briefly the difference between emotions and gut feelings, because I think this is a key to the question of how we know when our gut feelings are reliable:
1. Emotions are generally felt above the gut, above the hara, and are a combination of feeling from the gut and thinking from the head, i.e. fear, a combination of emptiness in gut feeling combined with a projection from the head as to a specified threat.
2. Gut feelings, felt in the hara, have no thinking component like emotions do; gut feelings are pure feeling of emptiness or fullness and they are the source of all feeling in emotions.
3. Gut feelings are pure feeling and relate to the state of the human organism.
4. Gut feelings are your truth, so to speak, related to how well your needs for acceptance and for feeling in control of your own responses to life/freedom is being met, and they are in that way always reliable.

It can take quite a bit of reflection on our gut feelings to begin to understand this, to see this in your own experience, particularly if one is not use to exploring feelings and distinguishing the difference in emotions and gut feelings. But just like it is so important to understand the difference in thinking and feeling to increase our EI, our emotional intelligence, it is important to take the time to understand the difference in emotional feelings and gut feelings to further increase our intelligence and facility that we may like to call "Intuition". So, we may have increased our "EI" by understanding the difference in our thinking and feelings or emotions, but let's go further and increase our "Intuitive Intelligence" by understanding and reflecting upon the difference in our emotional feelings and gut feelings.
This brings up another important question about gut feelings. “What role should intuitive thinking play in important decision making? And how can we train ourselves to have better knowledge of our gut instincts?”
We need to explore our gut instincts, not just use them with some vague idea of what they are. One really has to "know Thyself" and take the effort to do that inner work to use their gut feelings successfully in decision-making. There is much more to our gut instincts than just "pattern recognition brain impressions", although these patterns are certainly a result of our gut intelligence combined with our thinking—and rather it is accurate thinking or not depends upon whether we use our gut feelings as a premise of our thinking or leave out the impact of experience upon us and marginalize our human needs as unimportant to consider in problem-solving. This all effects the accuracy and haze in these mental patterns and our ability to have and increase Intuitive Intelligence. If we use our thinking as a premise for our logic without grounding it in our gut feelings, we run the risk of following a system of thought coming from an external source that may have no relevance to our life experience and may not take our human needs in consideration.

Have you ever felt like you were out on a limb trying to follow someone else's ideas of what you should be doing, even someone you carry in your head and haven't seen for a long time? We have to reflect on our gut feelings to separate out the thinking in our heads that comes from someone else's view of us, perhaps a view we picked up so long ago that we have forgotten when we first thought it or where it really came from. Successful people stop and reflect and listen to their own inner gut feelings and needs and take those into consideration in their goal setting and actions. When your thinking and feelings in your body are united, you feel confident and like you are standing on solid ground. This is also a condition that reduces stress and brings on good health, as well as intuitive and creative thinking.

Hey Doc, the "gut" is one of our "minds." The heart, solar-plexus, and genitals also have their own minds.

Mostly the last, in my case. :(
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.
