Course: Extrasensory Perception – A Quantum Mechanical Approach



This course addresses the psychical influence of information via an experients influence over the biological basis of consciousness and the mental process by which we perceive, act, learn, and remember (Telepathy), the influence of our objective environment (Clairvoyance), the stages of sensory processing i.e. sensation and perception, sensory systems, and sensory modalities, and the four stages of extrasensory perception including the sensory anticipation of the event, subliminal registration of the sensation, experience of a collection of sensations that the brain attempts to construe, and the attributed understanding of the experience. In addition, this course addresses a biophoton model in regards to ESP involving ultra weak biophoton (bio-light) emissions (light from within and emanating from human beings capable of cooperation and communication throughout the entire mind and body), biophotonic processes and effects, the measurement utilization for indicating cellular and overall health, emissions as a by-product of cellular metabolism and an overall regulating field, and the “master conductor” role of DNA as the most fundamental source of biophoton emissions capable of emitting a wide range of frequency-based communication at the quantum level internal and possibly external to the body. This course also addresses additive and subtractive extrasensory information, changes in direction of orientation, or intention, requirement of uncertainty, metaphorical and fragmentation issues, our extension beyond space-time, the bimodal nature of psi, psi-unconducive states (e.g. disinterest, distraction, anxiety, and conscious work), and psi-conducive states (e.g. uncertainty, confusion, and disorientation). In addition, this course addresses predispositions to psychical experiences including intention, extraversion, motivation, creativity, innovation, and experiential skills. Addresses the phenomenological approach to extrasensory including Telepathy vs. clairvoyance, temporal features, general extrasensory perception, realistic and unrealistic dreams, intuitive impressions, and hallucinations.
