precognition and clairvoyance explained

Precognition Explained, Lecture by a Joseph Campbell "Why re-enter such a world? Why attempt to make plausible or even interesting, to men and women consumed with passion, the experience of transcendental bliss? As dreams that were momentous by night may seem simply silly in the light of day, so the poet and the prophet can discover themselves playing the idiot before a jury of sober eyes. The easy thing is to commit the whole community to the devil and retire again into the heaven rock-dwelling, close the door and make it fast". M: "When you fall asleep imagine that you travel down into a well spring of deep water and if you travel down far enough into this well you will eventually encounter the source that is common to all. Think of it as a vast ocean hidden deep in the earth that links all of these separate wells together. In this place the dream imagery and the paradigms of human thought are held in common. The shared images move from the depths of this place upwards and into each of our unconscious minds. It is the source of all human creativity. What flows upwards towards each of us individually can also travel in the opposite direction, back downward. In the conscious realm of the physical world our minds see an important event take place and the impact of that event upon our minds causes a ripple that can travel back down into this deep ocean. If millions or even billions of human beings see an event happen that shocks them and leaves an impression, then this mental energy flows down into the depths of the universal unconscious...this hidden ocean. The sheer force of billions of people seeing an event together has a tremendous energy like a huge wave that can travel backwards and presumably forwards in time. It is my belief that premonitions spring from this energy". M: "These capabilities are not some new leap in evolution, rather the ability itself is archaic, ancient in origin". "Ten thousand years ago if a hunter is walking down a river bed and a mountain lion appears on a ledge above and behind him about to leap". "If the hunter feels the hair on the back of his neck stand up and realizes he is being watched he is more likely to live and pass along his genes. If he is not perceptive he will probably be killed". "The ability to foresee events was more common in a pre-industrial age if only because the background chaos of modern life drowns out the quiet voice". M: "The Romans had men and women who were openly accepted as clairvoyants and the Greeks were famous for their clairvoyants". "In native cultures and in western cultures over two thousand years ago clairvoyant experiences were considered valuable. The most famous American clairvoyant in the 20th Century may have been Edgar Caycee and the most well known 19th century man would be Sitting Bull. In the late 20th Century Dr Martin Luther King in his last speech clearly had a premonition. This ability has been shared by many people in many different cultures throughout history. Among native people they are referred to as Shamans or holy men such as Sitting Bull. There is no modern tradition of acceptance of this practice in western culture". M: "It is difficult to speak about mystical experiences without sounding rather foolish. I often turn on the TV and see someone who falsely claims this ability in order to enrich themselves. I am not superstitious and not particularly religious. Prior to my mystical experience I was an Agnostic. I do not like to take things on faith. I never believed in God just because I was told God existed. I am a scientist and I believe in the scientific method and what I can observe with my five senses". Marshall Thomas
