What were you in a parallel universe, anon? Anonymous 09/28/2019 (Sat) 15:42:51 No. 47 [Reply]
Do you ever imagine how life could be different?

The idea of parallel universes fascinates me, but also disturbs me. It's entirely possible that this is one of the best realities we have, and other outcomes suck.

What if it doesn't get any better than this?
What if it does, and we don't know how bad things really are?

No, I'd need to make it
Since I don't really know how its used properly it seems pretty risky, I mean it could be distorting your neurons or something like taking mushrooms, lsd or something I just don't really know
There's a circuit for it here;

I'd much rather make a proper time/dimensional distortion machine but parts for that might not be available yet
Where's the source for this book? What's the book called?

Also, this does seem very risky, be careful anon.
I guess its scanned from a manual, I think the inventor was selling these hyperdimensional resonators
Jews are actually khazars who stole the palestinian jews identity, infiltrated governments around the world, and tried to racemix with white people to make themselves smarter and better looking due to a massive inferiority complex so they invented money to enslave everyone on earth by using the media and now everyone sucks jewish dick because they are too chickenshit to rebel. They created the illuminati and killed God because they want to be God. They are responsible for all the stories about vampires/witches/goblins/aliens etc. They also like to rape babies and sacrifice them to satan. They will burn this planet to the ground and then flee at the last second using their spaceship they are currently constructing. Truth hurts.
Which came first: The Habiru or The Khazar?

Clairvoyant effect Anonymous 09/27/2019 (Fri) 17:05:20 No. 40 [Reply]
Some time ago I discovered this effect that when one can see into infinity one starts seeing paranormal things, this might be related with sensory deprivation aswell, but it may also be different
1 post and 1 image omitted.
Then after seeing a crystal ball I realized, hey this must be how that works.. the crystal ball could work the same as the setup with the lenses that I thought of, which was in turn inspired by that alice experiment
Here's a vid detailing the alice mirror experiment and showing some results;

"To conjure is nothing else than to observe anything rightly, to know and to understand what it is. The crystal is a figure of the air. Whatever appears in the air, movable or immovable, the same appears also in the speculum or crystal as a wave. For the air, the water, and the crystal, so far as vision is concerned, are one, like a mirror in which an inverted copy of an object can be seen"

Gazing in a crystal ball for a long period of time reminds me of mirror gazing.

Here's a study about it: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1068/p6466

To trigger the illusion you need to stare at your own reflection in a dimly lit room. The author, Italian psychologist Giovanni Caputo, describes his set up which seems to reliably trigger the illusion: you need a room lit only by a dim lamp (he suggests a 25W bulb) that is placed behind the sitter, while the participant stares into a large mirror placed about 40 cm in front.

The participant just has to gaze at his or her reflected face within the mirror and usually “after less than a minute, the observer began to perceive the strange-face illusion”.

The set-up was tried out on 50 people, and the effects they describe are quite striking:

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

Caputo suggests that the dramatic effects might be caused by a combination of basic visual distortions affecting the face-specific interpretation system.

The visual system starts to adapt after we receive the same information over time (this is why you can experience visual changes by staring at anything for a long time) but we also have a system that interprets faces very easily.

This is why we can ‘see’ faces in clouds, trees, or even from just two dots and a line. The brain is always ‘looking for faces’ and it is likely that we have a specialised face detection system to allow us to recognise individuals whose faces actually only differ a small amount in statistical terms from other people’s.

According to Caputo’s suggestion, the illusion might be caused by low level fluctuations in the stability of edges, shading and outlines affecting the perceived definition of the face, which gets over-interpreted as ‘someone else’ by the face recognition system.

More mysterious, however, were the participants’ emotional reactions to the changes:

>The participants reported that apparition of new faces in the mirror caused sensations of otherness when the new face appeared to be that of another, unknown person or strange `other’ looking at him/her from within or beyond the mirror. All fifty participants experienced some form of this dissociative identity effect, at least for some apparition of strange faces and often reported strong emotional responses in these instances. For example, some observers felt that the `other’ watched them with an enigmatic expression – situation that they found astonishing. Some participants saw a malign expression on the ‘other’ face and became anxious. Other participants felt that the `other’ was smiling or cheerful, and experienced positive emotions in response. The apparition of deceased parents or of archetypal portraits produced feelings of silent query. Apparition of monstrous beings produced fear or disturbance. Dynamic deformations of new faces (like pulsations or shrinking, smiling or grinding) produced an overall sense of inquietude for things out of control.
How do crystal balls work exactly?

Artificial Intelligence within Government Anonymous 10/07/2019 (Mon) 10:50:38 No. 63 [Reply]
When AI is sufficiently advanced, would it be better at governing us?

I don't think people are intelligent enough to make their own decisions, and would be better off being managed by AI.

I mean, AI is already just as good at--

-translating languages
-diagnosing medical problems, without any patient bias
-transcribing audio
-playing chess
-reporting news

Why do we trust regular people to do the job? It's obvious machines are better at everything.
I think one interesting perspective to take on this is that humanity /is/ being governed by "artificial intelligence", in the sense that the natural intelligence displayed throughout humanity is subject to the same kind of "code" that AI is, and that the goal of scientific pursuit is to understand that code (on a level deeper than understanding human intelligence, but you hopefully see my point).
I'm not understanding, can you define the code you're speaking of? I'm unclear on the parallels between biological and artificial intelligence you propose, would appreciate if you could try to explain more lucidly.

Memory palaces Anonymous 09/28/2019 (Sat) 15:25:42 No. 46 [Reply]
In honor of trying to unlock our brains fullest potential, the idea of memory palaces is extremely interesting to me.

>Step 1: For your first memory palace, try choosing a place that you know well, like your home or office.
>Step 2: Plan out the whole route -- for example: front door, shoe rack, bathroom, kitchen, living room, etc. Some people find that going clockwise is helpful, but it isn't necessary. Eventually, you will have many memory palaces. You will also be able to revise the memory palace after you test it a few times, so don't worry if it's perfect on the first try.
>Step 3: Now take a list of something that you want to memorize -- a shopping list of 20 items is a good place to start: carrots, bread, milk, tea, oats, apples, etc.
>Step 4: Take one or two items at a time and place a mental image of them in each locus of your memory palace. Try to exaggerate the images of the items and have them interact with the location. For example, if the first item is "carrots" and the first locus in your memory palace is the front door, picture some giant carrots opening up your front door.
>Step 5: Make the mnemonic images come alive with your senses. Exaggeration of the images and humor can help.

Here's a detailed guide: https://forum.artofmemory.com/t/how-to-create-a-memory-palace-journey/30105?_ga=2.38195557.757420703.1569684041-365998255.1569684041

What do you guys think? Is it based? Have you tried it? How did it turn out for you?
I thought of something like this for learning japanesse Kanji, but then didn't act on it
There are like 2000 Kanji so learning them can be a challenge
I've considered this for the same purpose. Learning the Japanese Kanji is no joke, I seriously wish there was an easier way.

I know they have their traditions, but I feel bad for all the school students in Japan who are forced to learn that many symbols. It seems like a massive waste of time when you compare it to 24 letters.
well the Kanji are made up of radicals and it might be possible to connect their meaning a bit from the radicals but yeah its even more difficult when one thinks about most kanjis having more than one way to say it depending on what it's used in
I think Artifical intelligences could be really useful with this too
I learned the kana better by playing games
The concept has been recently popularized by Sherlock and your pic rel is a drawing of him. Problem with Sherlock is that it's a show about a super-genius written by average people for whom high intelligence is like some sort of space magic.

The mental palace is just another variation of an old mnemonic trick of associating something visual to the subject to easily remember it because human memory is based on connections.

Memory palace might be good for cramming unconnected, illogical pieces of info into your head, but if you apply it to the wrong subject, it'll do more harm than good. I personally tried it once back in high school for the lolz and it was a bad idea. Practically it worked, but I made a stupid mistake of using it on human anatomy. Human body can be a visual mind palace in itself so it's a far better idea to assign info to visualization of it instead of using your house or building entirely new palace.
Same goes for most things that are better learned by connecting new info to preexisting and relevant info. Building a palace that has nothing to with it hurts you in the long run because the connections won't be reinforced.

Learning chemistry? Visualize a process or a molecular structure.
New language? Just like you did as a toddler, assign words to their visual representation.

Tdlr; it's a meme unless you're a savant with photographic memory already.

>Kanji are made up of radicals and it might be possible to connect their meaning a bit from the radicals
Far better idea than connecting it to rooms and irrelevant objects.

What were they covering up? Anonymous 10/07/2019 (Mon) 09:13:35 No. 62 [Reply]
There is always some silly media attention grab whenever they're trying to cover up a bigger story. This time, it was this invading Area 51 story. Was this a distraction from the Epstein 'suicide', or was there something more sinister afoot?

I think it was the Epstein case. They probably paid off the guards. Did anyone else notice how quickly those ear pictures were wiped off the map? I remember.

Remote viewing Anonymous 09/23/2019 (Mon) 12:10:20 No. 14 [Reply]
I'm interested in remote viewing
There's evidence for it working but apparently it can take a lot of discipline
I've remote viewed on accident before. I spent 6 months practicing lucid dreaming, and then had an accidental out of body experience.

I'm sure it's real, but one needs to spend a lot of time learning how to control your mind via meditation and lucid dreaming.

At the end of it, I felt very tired and my sleep was fairly unsatisfying because my mind was active during the dream state. I don't know if there's a secret trick to it, perhaps, but I couldn't keep this up for longer than 6 months before I felt completely drained.
I think out of body experience is somewhat different than remote viewing.
Kinda like the difference of going out to a place and looking at a picture of it in a computer.
Remote viewing is similar to clairvoyancy, but remote viewing is a practiced skill which gives the remote viewer a psychic imprint and the skill is honed in specifying a target to get an imprint of. The key to it is removing distractions when getting the initial imprint (feeling of something related to the target)
A remote viewer can supposedly view the past or future using this method too and it may be a skill that can be practiced by almost anyone as long as they can practice skills.
there is alot of disinformation on remote viewing and astral projection, which are actually based on the same practice used on different targets.

practice feeling and knowing every part of your body gradually, in order to feel for the etheric body, some eastern traditions can be a boon in this practice, this will take around 6 months. must start small, and only add to this practice, not replace.

construct a simulacrum of the etheric body by will and observance, practice daily, place in different places and positions, make it move realistically. depending on visual training of individual, this will take 1 month to a year.

project consciousness into etheric body, make a simple route with different sense to guide yourself by, so place symbols you are familiar with, scented wood, different textured cloths, learn to sense through the etheric body as you maneuveur it through your designated route. training the senses of your etheric body and keeping a sharp memory of your projections will take time, widely variable by person. training in lucid dreaming can be of use here.

this is where remote viewing and atral projection diverge, remote viewing will use this training to move through space, you can learn to fly or teleport within your etheric body, while astral projection will have you move into symbols, starting with the 4 fundamental elements, making gates out of their representation to move through.
then moving onto hybrids and much, much more.

with enough discipline, this method will bear fruit for anyone. if there are tricks to achieve these results sooner, i do not know them. I hope I have been of help, trust your intuition when doing research, this type of information has become harder to find in the last few years.

good luck anons.
You should read up on actual remote viewing before posting about it, you also mixed up remote viewing with astral projection/out of body experience

Remote viewing = Getting info nonlocally (You don't need anything other than intuition)

Out of body experience = Going out of physical body in spirit body

Astral projection = Purposeful out of body experience in which the spirit explores "Astral" realm

Remote viewing isn't the same as oobe or astral projection

Biohacking. Anonymous 09/22/2019 (Sun) 12:46:20 No. 7 [Reply]
I'm extremely interested in biohacking, and would like to get a discussion going about this topic.
Magnetic Finger Implants.
This one seems pretty interesting. I'd like to get it done, but it's very painful and I'm a pussy. The idea is that you can gain new senses which would be invisible to you, otherwise. The implant allows you to sense magnetic fields (like your microwave, stovetop, trains underground), pick up tiny metal objects, and lastly feel electricity (60 Hz) without touching it. This means you'll be able to feel when wires are alive or dead.

The only downside is that it's painful to put in (you're not allowed to use anesthetics), and some people have experienced their implants getting ripped out which is awfully painful for the tip of your finger.
Heart Rhythm Meditation
This is one I do all the time, and the benefits are ongoing.
>The method was described in the 1998 book Living from the Heart, by Puran Bair (2nd Edition Published in 2009)[9] and in the 2007 book Energize Your Heart in 4 Dimensions, by Puran and Susanna Bair. The method of HRM involves conscious breathing, use of the full lung capacity, a concentration on the heart (both the physical heart and the emotional or poetic heart) and an intervention in the breath to make it rhythmic, through the coordination of the breath and heartbeat. "The Full Breath" technique expands the vital capacity of the lungs with full and deep breathing, while slowing the breath rate to six breaths per minute or slower. This synchronizes breath and heartbeat, creating “entrainment,” a coherent pattern of Heart Rate Variability. Entrainment also decreases production of stress hormones and increases production of anti-stress hormones. Another pattern, “The Square Breath”, involves a longer holding of the breath, so that the holding period equals the breathing period, for example, 8 beats in, 16 beats hold, 8 beats out. The "Square Breath" method is applied for stabilizing quality of breathing in order to reduce anxiety or feelings of panic. Research studies completed by the Heart Math Institute indicate that this sort of entrainment increases parasympathetic nervous system activity, associated with a calm, restful state

Apparently some people have hooked themselves up to a heart rate monitor. One you learn it, you will be able to control your heart rate indefinitely which seems like a massive bonus for any situation.

You can read more about it on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heart_Rhythm_Meditation
This is an interesting one. The research is still new and fresh, so I'm excited to see where this science leads in the future. I take l-theanine and caffeine very frequently. l-theanine is excellent because it's the calming agent in tea. Very natural, soothing, and helps alleviate jitters. I like the calming sensation.

I have an interest in taking adderall long-term, however I'm not convinced it's actually helpful. I believe there's a high likelihood that adderall only improves your confidence, and doesn't make anyone more intelligent based on a documentary I've watched. I also believe most drugs have consequences on the health of the brain/body long term.

I'm greatly interested in other nootropic drugs, but I'd like to see more scientific studies completed before I'd be willing to add anything else to my routine. For now, it seems that being healthy (diet + exercise) is the best routine for peak physical and mental performance.
>Six breaths per minute or lower
I'm going to practice this so I can become god-tier at eating pussy
