Clairvoyance is the psychical influence of a hypothetical objective environment I call the universal information system, or Nature, which I assume is capable of storing, retaining, and recalling information pertaining to the past and current states of objects and events, involved in the interim integration, processing, shifting, and retrieval of information pertaining to objects and events in real-time, and probabilistically determining the potential trajectory of future events.
I define clairvoyant interaction as “the causal influence of an entities “mind” onto an experient without the intervention of the five senses.” This form of clairvoyance is typically known as trance mediumship or channeling. In either case, two forms are typically assumed to exist.
In addition to the aforementioned forms of clairvoyant interaction, there also appears to be two more types of interaction including physical mediumship and the abilities characteristic of psychopomps.
(1) The first form has characteristics of mental mediumship, but with the medium sitting or lying down in a deep meditative state. During these sessions, the medium may speak as though the information is being conveyed to the medium, but rather, the information is coming directly from the entity, but being conveyed through the mediums natural voice and behaviors.
(2) The second form is characteristic of the entity influencing the mediums physical body in addition to speech (i.e. possession). The medium is often awake and aware of most of the communication period and the thoughts and words conveyed from entity to medium to sitter.
(3) The third form is physical mediumship, which is defined as the influence of the energies and energy systems of spirits. The term "physical medium" suggests a medium with or without obvious psychical ability, which can be used as a source of “power” for spirit manifestations such as loud rapping and other noises, voices, materialized objects, materialized spirit bodies, or body parts such as hands, or the occurrence of levitation.
(4) The fourth form involves the abilities characteristic of psychopomps, which not only involves assisting spirits, which have or have not crossed-over, resolve unfinished issues with the living, but also assisting spirits that have not crossed-over on their journey to the afterlife.
Reports of clairvoyant interaction are not limited to discarnate spirits (spirits of the deceased), but have also included seemingly “evil spirits” or demonic entities, angelic entities, spirit guides, and omnipotent spirits described as the Holy Spirit, God(s), Goddess(es), and Nature itself.
