Speaker 1:

Hi, this is Gretchen from come to yourself.com with our series facts, not fiction, featuring a discussion about parapsychology with Lloyd our back enjoy.

Speaker 2:

They did try to do psychokinesis research, but they had because of the way they were trying to control for every possible variable. Um, they had a real hard time finding a good subject who could do big enough stuff and very minor things were a problem because , uh , Sri and an essay, I see us as AIC was the other contractor that ticket. They were too close to a road to actually be able to get rid of, completely get rid of vibration. So,

Speaker 1:

And can you give a quick explanation of what psychokinesis is?

Speaker 2:

Um, most people would probably notice telekinesis. Yes . Uh , which is the idea that I can think and make something move. And that's one part, one form of psychokinesis psychokinesis means action at a distance , uh , action by the mind telekinesis means action at a distance. So there's one action of the mind. Yeah . But psychokinesis really covers things, including movement of objects, including , um, altering chemical processes, including influencing biology. So healing, one of the things we include , uh, most people have heard about metal bending, spoon bending and things like that that would be included in psychokinesis what the ghost hunters talk about as electronic voice phenomenon is a form of psychokinesis. If it's, when it's real, if it's real. So it's any action of mine makes and then just to bring it home, if you want to be strict in your definition of being a little bit more literal, my talking right now, it's mind over matter. I'm making my body move. I'm making myself , um, Roger banister, when you ran the four minute mile in 1954 , uh , which was physically impossible to sports people , um, physiologists , you know, everybody said a human being can't run that fast. Not only did he do it, but several people did it for the next few years after. And people keep breaking records, so extraordinary behavior or , um, extraordinary events by sports figures, by martial artists, extraordinary human capacity, the idea of a woman picking up , we hear the stories about people, some mother being thrown out of a car and then picking up the car off her kid or something. And everybody thinks that those stories are not real par , partly because they're not really written up anywhere. But I have met , uh , I met two doctors from Marine County, German general, who actually examined a woman where she was witnessed doing just that and damage to her body, which should have not have been possible as one of them put it. The orthopedic surgeon said she should have had torn ligaments at the very least.

Speaker 1:

So the things that we now in these times, and these generations attribute to comic book behavior, comic book, character, behavior, Marvel, movie behavior, you know, nine times out of 10 really existed and have occurred now in your life .

Speaker 2:

Not necessarily to that kind of level of power. Um, but , but , uh , but yeah, I mean, I I've been a comic reader since I was a kid. Uh, and that was one of the things that got me really hooked in. And honestly, I learned the language of Paris psychology from comic books. Uh, if , if there were X-Men readers out there, they knew the term Paris psychology, they knew saw. I mean , they knew all that stuff because Chris Claremont who wrote the new X men back in the eighties , um, he was, he put all that language in there. I mean, it's all there. So when I talk to science fiction and comic book people, I don't have to ever define anything unless I'm going against the popular culture.
