THE PHYSIOLOGY OF PRECOGNITION
This is such a wild article that I simply had to blog about it. It concerns what I'm calling the "physiology of precognition", and it was shared by V.T.:
Scientists Discover That The Heart & Brain Respond To Future Events – Before They Happen
Here's the crux of the matter: As part of an experiment in physiological responses to future events, participants in an experiment were made to sit at a computer screen, and were then shown pictures of either a calming or emotion-evocative nature, and this procedure was then repeated. The pictures remained on the screen for three seconds, and in every run, the pictures were presented in randomized order. The results were astounding:
The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.
How mind-altering is that?
Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”
The question is why does this happen? And here, as one might expect, I have some high octane speculative hypotheses to advance.
Most of us have probably had such "precognitive" experiences at one time or another during our lives, from the simple example of thinking about someone only to have the phone ring a few seconds later, and that individual is on the line. Or a vague sense of something "being amiss" and the refrigerator dies or a computer malfunctions or the car won't start.
Explaining these phenomena has evoked all sorts of theories. The Soviet astrophysicist Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev, for example, conducted highly classified experiments in torsion in the Soviet Union, and actually posited that there was a kind of "retro-causation" as information flowed from the future into the past. His reasoning was complicated (as the thought of Russian astrophysicists usually is), but it basically boiled down to the Observer effect in modern physics, and how given a partially-known set of circumstances, certain future results were more likely than others, and could thus exert an influence from the future on the present and past, inverting the normal "common sense" ideas of the flow of time and causation. For this (and other) reasons, Kozyrev's work (what little is reliably known of it) remains controversial both inside and outside of Russia, with some denouncing him as a crank, and others viewing him as a brilliant man (for the record, I tend strongly to the latter view).
More recently, there have been arguments that the structure of the observable and known universe, with its galaxies and galactic clusters spread out over the vast voids of space, resembles a gigantic neuron. Pictures have appeared on the internet of these structures juxtaposed with pictures of neurons, and the resemblance is more than striking, giving rise to the ancient metaphor that the universe is more like an organism, or perhaps better put, a meta-organism than it is like a machine, which is of course the "metaphor" that most moderns operate with. It is with this metaphor that today's high octane speculation is chiefly concerned. The ancients not only viewed the universe as more organism than machine, but went so far as to draw the analogy to mankind as a "microcosm" of that meta-organism, an analogy that clearly implied some sort of intelligent order to the universe, but an order vastly more complicated than the Cartesian-Newtonian machine metaphor. One individual in that "microcosmist" tradition, a Church Father by the name of St. Maximus the Confessor, went even further, concluding that if man is a microcosm, the universe was a "macanthropos," a "large man," anticipating the modern developments in the "anthropic principle" of cosmological physics by several centuries. Kozyrev's "retro-causation" would have made complete sense to a Maximus: "...before Abraham was, I am."
If that be the case, then perhaps what falls out of that view is that the human being acts as a "transducer" of the vast information field of the universe, rather like a radio does not contain the information "inside the box," but rather, tunes into it and receives it, a view that makes even more sense when one views DNA, and particularly human DNA, as an aperiodic crystal, an analogy or metaphor one sometimes encounters in regard to human genetics.
That in turn puts the comments of some people who have received the mRNA covid "quackcines" and reporting that "they've killed God" into an interesting light: tinker with the tuning crystal, and one is tinkering with a divine connection...
...can you say "entanglement"? Oh...wait... that's tomorrow's blog...
See you on the flip side...

At least explains why I often feel like a radio receiver…and more
Can’t help but think of Carl Jung’s (whom I’m very rusty on) thoughts on archetypes and the connected unconscious mind.
We are all connected, and precognition is seeing from a different ‘perspective’ – a different vibrational frequency.
Oh my! An entanglement with God! Beautifully stated !

The multiple scales of space/time. At the sub-atomic level, mirror Universes inside the neurons of your brain may be quantum entangled with your larger scale of being or scale of space/time. Years, hours and seconds at smaller scales of being pass by nearly infinitely quicker than they do on our scale of space/time and being. Our neurons may be quantum entangled and tuned to an identical manifestation and repeat of our state of being in an infinitely bigger scale of space/time in the mind of an infinitely bigger version of ourselves. Because these different scales are connected and share identical frequencies, what happens on some of the smaller or larger scales a few moments before ours may be received and detected somehow by nerves evolved to be sensitive to such. Thus our scale of being may begin to react to what is about to happen here because it has already happened there. All scales do share the same background electromagnetic radiation remember. And this multi-dimensional electromagnetic field evidently has infinite layers of differing scales of electromagnetic pulsating wave sizes of identical frequency running through it and overlapping each other it seems. In the nearly infinitely bigger scales of space/time the same hour that exists on ours would seem to take an infinitely long time to play if it could be viewed from our scale. Now consider there are infinite scales over lapping each other and conscious jumping sometimes occurs between two very similar dimensions sometimes as well. And even more rarely sometimes your whole body phases in and out of extremely different Universes and world’s that are on scales and frequencies of being very similar in size, time and place to our own dimension. Breaking the speed of light may bring one to resonance with an alternate Universe and Dimension! Perhaps just creating an electromagnetic shockwave passing over you at double the speed of light may shift you to an alternative world and universe! Perhaps this occurs naturally sometimes or gets induced by beings in the know and is responsible for may of our legends, fables and unsolved mysteries! Perhaps our colliders are really mapping out the frequencies of occurance of other inhabitable potentially reachable alternative worlds and dimensions!
Actually bigger scales may be faster and smaller scales slower as well. Is Relativity itself a dimension? And a manipulatable key to breaking through the veil between worlds? Electromagnetic shockwave speed or scale of being could be keys. Speed and distance are obvious ways and keys to reach alternative worlds, star systems, and galaxies in our observable Universe. How many more keys and ways could there be? Higher consciousness and ability perhaps?
interesting in the light of Paulides’ work – Missing 411.
Nikola Tesla – “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Thank you for expressing these ideas as you do. I stumble between trite metaphors and vast paragraphs of overstimulated explanations trying to articulate how stunningly, lovingly, beautifully you both tipped me into Resonance and Awe. Suffice to say, it was much needed.
An interesting connection between the brain and the heart didn’t the AlKemets believe that thought resided in the heart, not the brain. Since the nerves conduct electrical signals around the body could the brain be a coordinator of these signals instead of the seat of awareness?
Neurohumoral Control of Cardiac Function
JEFFREY L. ARDELL, in Heart Physiology and Pathophysiology (Fourth Edition), 2001

As mentioned previously, intrinsic cardiac ganglia contain a heterogeneous population of neurons. Intracellular recordings from isolated whole mount aggregates of intrinsic cardiac ganglia support the concept that complex neural interactions occur within the heart. Studies on aggregates of intrinsic cardiac ganglia derived from different species indicate that the resting membrane potential of these neurons is approximately –60 mV, with relatively low input resistances and thresholds for the generation of action potential being approximately 20 mV more positive than the resting membrane potential (
I think you are on something. I have heard from many sources / many years / re: area of the solar plexus.
in studying Chinese, I discovered that the same character represented both mind and heart. Moreover, as I understand it, in hieroglyphic and in Ancient Greek, mind and heart are basically seen as one.
In messages from Water and the Universe by Masaru Emoto,he says the Chinese character for sound is a combination of sun and standing. The sun was created to provide life supporting energy which is sent to the Earth in the form of vibrations. Radiant energy is formed when the vibrations are in harmony, and we feel this energy from the sounds of nature and the spoken word.
We are all connected, and precognition is seeing from a different ‘perspective’ – a different vibrational frequency.
“Instincts that can still betray us
A journey that leads to the sun
Soulless and bent on destruction
A struggle between right and wrong
You take my place in the showdown
I’ll observe with a pitiful eye
I’ll humbly ask for forgiveness
A request well beyond you and I
Heart and soul, one will burn
Heart and soul, one will burn
An abyss that laughs at creation
A circus complete with all fools
Foundations that lasted the ages
Then ripped apart at their roots
Beyond all this good is the terror
The grip of a mercenary hand
When savagery turns all good reason
There’s no turning back, no last stand
Heart and soul, one will burn
Heart and soul, one will burn
Existence, well, what does it matter?
I exist on the best terms I can
The past is now part of my future
The present is well out of hand
The present is well out of hand
Heart and soul, one will burn
Heart and soul, one will burn”

Experimental evidence shows that decisions are made unconsciously before one realizes it consciously. Of course, there could be many other explanations explaining this phenomena; including very sinister ones, engineered by “aliens” long ago in man’s past.
For me, the question isn’t that man has been engineered by an intelligence outside his own species; but how many times, and by how many intelligences?
To today’s blog.
In the articles experiment; again, there are countless explanations.
There’s a “time” explanation.
There’s the “experiment” itself, being flawed.
There’s a “reality” explanation. Some may believe that this is a holographic universe; and that as such, there may be “programming” loops.
Just a few, off the cuff scenarios, to demonstrate there are many rabbit holes to go down, in finding “answers”.
For me, the usual suspect most in the frame of this alleged experiment is? You guessed it: the press. I mean, we’re supposed to believe “their” narratives.
NEWS FLASH! Computer is acting “strange”.
Nothing unusual; as my Chinese keyboard conjures up all kinds of strange.
It went into a quarte of a screen; unable to type into. Hit F11, and am typing.
Interesting, in that; this is hardware; like the brain[using metaphor], and that can have engineered “bugs”.
So now I’m going to post, and get back to “normal”.
Second screen back up.
I use two: 1) to read the blog from; 2) to type as I read today’s blog.
Wasn’t aware that the “heart” had a “mind” connection; other that in language.
Was knowledgeable on “gut” connection.
I agree. Most of us have had these pre-cognition anomalies[my word].
It exists. And, there may well be many “future” scientific explanations of these anomalies being, in fact, real bonafide futures. In other words, “reality” is much more stranger than fiction.
Dr. Farrell’s gut[my word] reaction of man as a microcosm of the living universe; and thus able to “tune in” makes more sense than any other explanation I can conjure up.
His has the ring of solid truth behind it’s echoes.
The heart and brain responding to events (present and future) seem to have a working relationship to begin. They’re already electrically connected as the lexicon allows. Most folks are well adapted to their corporeal processes to not give occurrences a second glance or consideration.
There’s also a greater connectivity that often goes unnoticed by a lot of folks probably because they’re busy-busy in the moment they’re in. One has seen and heard an event take place that wasn’t a pre-arranged experiment although, for all intents and purposes, it had the trimmings of getting arranged as one if it were in a controlled setting like a laboratory.
The short story goes thusly: Shopping one day at the grocers a mother and child, the toddler child in the seat portion of the shopping cart, were exploring contents on the self. I was a couple of meters behind doing the same and periodically watching not to bump into them and others doing their own shopping. The overhead radio was finishing a quick news and weather broadcast and went temporarily silent for a few seconds. Not anything new they do that frequently. Suddenly, as one did another quick check of shelf contents, close by shopping carts, and lastly, the mother and child combination ahead of me, the toddler child started signing a song. (A quick thought in passing, this kid’s going to be a singer someday). . . . A few seconds later the song started playing, word for word and melody in tune, from the overhead speaker we were under. Coincidence? Synchronicity? Or just happenstance? It wasn’t in a laboratory setting so it wasn’t documented. I thought that was kinda neat, actually. You know, far-out-man, as this occurrence was back in the eighties – and one of hundreds now. Who’s taking notes anymore, eh? I’m not. It happens!
One’s guess, these sorts of things happen regularly as people are equipped with a great deal of intuitive designs and innate sensitivities. They’re often too busy with the mundane to take notice. The above is just one example one has witnessed firsthand. People are far more attuned with planetary awareness, and much more, than are given credit. They might simply need to notice these things more often and appreciate them because they are. It’s not specie exclusive, either. Who needs a white-coat quack to tell you what you already know, anyway, when you can observe on your own?
One will keep “entanglement’ around anyway, too, as it’s already been found to be pertinent and quite apparent. There are a lot of surprises yet to be witnessed when the sensory apparatuses are allowed access to that cranial interpreter.
The child was singing, not signing. Typo
My mind automatically made the connection and correction while reading the article. My first thought was a toddler would probably not be signing, autocorrect issue, the context implies singing.
See the brain can automatically correct the computer. Can the computer automatically correct itself?
Entanglement is a very strange “sense” to feel, it happens to me a lot since I started meditating. I can’t figure it out except being in tune with the universe some how, everything is connected. Mine are exact words or phrases at the exact same moment as I’m thinking or reading the words, and then the tv, radio or someone talking to me says the same. Similar to deje vu but not the same. I Imagine everyone can experience this but are not listening.
The Global Consciousness Project reported an unprecedented peak deviation from chance in their random number generators, apparently correlated to what happened in the United States 9/11 2001.
They show individual minds, emotions are creating a field of global, planetary consciousness. This field of consciousness seemingly influences matter and physical energy fields. https://www.worlddreamspeacebridge.org
I have the gift of PROPHECY. It runs strong in my Scythian bloodline. The wand chooses the wizard. That is why pretenders on thrones seek to have me “foxhunted” in the cradle.
Since the dark lord pretenders are systematically killing bloodlines, of the original stock, I am as welcome in high circles, as a garlic in a vampire court.
The vampires tried to do a “class act” against my person. It backfired. I just left Denmark, laughing, and vowed never to return, before the castle is burning.
My favorite vision of the future is a Zippo lighter and a jerrycan.
This is an intriguing story, because it is an ongoing saga. In Harry Potter universe, there is a prophecy, that says: “neither can live while the other survives.”
Pretenders do not know the part, they are trying to play. They have to be prompted, because their alchemy is no good, and emulate traits, of those they seek to destroy.
This “symbiosis” is mutually destructive. One’s blood becomes poisonous, to the vampire, when the Seventh Seal is broken. That is why Scythian yoga is banned as Heathen.
A self-fulfilling prophecy occurs, because it has already occurred.
Could be what the Cosmos has in mind. We’ve surely crossed the line.
The Venn-diagram is expanding the “crossed line”. Intersection is “no man’s land”.
That is the “twilight zone”, between night and day, where one transcends both.
Making a stand in a paradox, is challenging one’s brain, into a combat.
Original yoga is self-challenge, to rise beyond limitations, and mock Assyrians.
THE ANSWER TO MIND CONTROL, IS TO CONTROL THE MIND. THAT IS SCYTHIAN YOGA.

Imagine the perfect concert hall, a hall like the Amsterdam Concertgebouw approaches. The acoustic properties of such a hall make the orchestra float and the music sound like angels playing. And it is known that even painting the ceiling would change the sound of the orchestra.
DNA is the blueprint of our, so to say, individual and perfectly built concert hall – in biblical terms “the temple”, our physical body. Changing the DNA by an injection with a genome-modifing agent, is like renovating our concert hall. It can kill the music. Irreversibly.
Yes. When ruled by parasites, the collective body is already injected, by a foreign element.
Queen single mum doesn’t wear a mask in Parliament, so she better can spew poison.
Today, the pretenders want to inject themselves, into everybody’s bloodstream.
It is on the record:
If this is real, the experiment and its results should be very easy to duplicate by other workers in other organizations.
Some may know of Clif High who started searching the web in the 90’s for linguistic patterns that would indicate future happenings. He had many hits. It seems somehow future events would come out in people’s language usage years and decades in advance.
He can be viewed on Bitchute. Beware he is somewhat of a curmudgeon.
I do not know how to explain anomalous cognition from a physiological perspective. I think that the valence and numinous nature of words, image or an experience, and how many people react to and process the meaning of an event, strengthens the transmission, and effects the likelihood of a person picking up on a simultaneous happening or a future occurrence.

Greek philosophy uses the triad: Theoria-Poiesis-Praxis, and that translates to: viewer, doer, ideal doer.
“Ideal doer” is AWAKE AWARENESS, and that means, to observe one’s own doing, while in the process of doing it.
One needs perfect body chemistry, to allow the pineal gland to bloom like that. That is whole point of yoga discipline.
Armchair occultists use artificial imagery, to spellbind, to gain sectarian influence, over their brainwashed followers.
One’s own natural imagery comes from within, unfolding like petals, in their own good time, of natural flow.
I read a translation of Kozyrev’s book about his mirror experiments years ago.Very, very interesting results. His ideas are so far from ‘quackery’ that they MUST be labeled as such.
I couldn’t find the book I read, but a lot of folks are carrying his research forward, though, of course, some may be with the intent of derailing and muddying the waters.
The following quote comes from this site,
“This point of view plants the notions of mind, thought, intellect and science in the cosmic realm as functions of self-existing thinking layers dispersed throughout the universe and which are adapted by temporal conditions to the evolving states of planetary biospheres or planetary/stellar noospheres. However, the nature of modern historical civilization has been to separate society from science and to isolate science as a sociocultural mechanism apart from its genuine reality as cosmoplanetary thought stream. Establishment science regulated by totalitarian legislation becomes merely another belief system, so that new science is denounced as false science, and the “defenders of ‘science’ invisibly dress themselves in an infallible cloak of Belief, not science.” (p.7)
It’s not hard to see the interconnections with precognitive thinking.
Search ‘Kozyrev mirrors’ for lots more interesting stuff, like this site.

Joseph wrote about Sir Isaac Newton in his book The Philosopher’s Stone. The economist John Maynard Keynes said Newton “was the last of the magicians” – he was no machine!. He was a true alchemist.
Chemistry is the key to life and we know that Francis Crick discovered the double helix structure of DNA whilst high on LSD.
The purpose of human designed mRNA is to speed up natural selection and evolution by genetic reprogramming. Seems logical to me if we want to create super humans!
I will let you know how I feel after the Second Injection this week. Maybe a Total Recall?
How do you know if you are speeding up the “natural selection” by artificial means? What if you are hindering and/or rerouting it? Anyway, very brave of you….
Rosalind Franklin helped steer Crick the right way round with her x-ray crystallographic interpretation she offered Crick. Chemistry, again, very important but not complete by itself.
A lot of things happen, in the heat of the moment. Sometimes time stands still. Those are non-linear moments…

It is highly logical, that the Scythian Isaacs on the steppe, being descendants of Noah – the ancient wine maker – would have sought dietary supplements, by traveling to Jerusalem once a year, for a wineskin.
Today, people travel long distances, to music festivals, to taste the local brew. Jerusalem would have functioned partly as a “museum”, and partly as an “embassy”, for the Scythian Isaacs on the steppe.
Roman interest would have been, to facilitate such a popular tribal powwow in Jerusalem, to recruit proud horse warriors, for Roman legions, and that explains the aqueduct plans in the region, for a Roman spa, agriculture, animal watering, etc.
The Romans changed their mind – obviously – when they destroyed Jerusalem. That is ONLY logical, if the Scythian Isaacs had stopped coming, and the Romans were left with backstabbing Zealots, who were bad recruits.
Acceptance of Christ, as the natural leader of the tribal powwow, would have prevented the fall of Jerusalem. Instead, the crucifixion becomes an anticlimax, and a triggering reason, for the Scythian Isaacs, to head up north, into Europe.
From a Scythian point of view, the crucifixion would have been seen, as the murder of a music festival, and therefore the tribal powwow was better held elsewhere, since women and children would have been present.
The idea of a “New Jerusalem music festival” in Britain would have caught fire, in the minds of Scythian Isaacs, like “modern” settlers crossing the prairie to California – and more so – as a promise of a tribal gathering, at the end of journey. Nomads have a mobile mind!
From a British point of view, the foreknowledge of Roman invasion, would have led them, to seek alliances, against Rome. The strategic move of Jerusalem kingship – to Britain – would naturally have brought Scythian Isaacs into Europe. Point made!
The Scythian Isaacs were known, to have brought down the Assyrian empire and Babylon, and therefore their warrior skills would have been sought after, when Britons were heading, into an unavoidable confrontation with Rome. Strategic logistics!
As a part of this Scythian tourism, Odin & Co come paddling to Scandinavia, following the Russian rivers. In European history they become known, as Isaac’s sons, Saxons. They find Britain fortified by Rome, and it takes four centuries, for the Scythians in Europe, to bring down the Roman empire.
The sought after warrior skills of the Scythians can be found – as a reminiscence – in medieval writings of Snorri Sturluson, and – as a cliche of tradition – in Indian yoga, that originally was a martial art discipline, that inspired Shaolin kung-fu in China, and karate in Japan.
By papal deception, modern Saxons have been drafted, into national socialism, and that is Jesuit moles having fun with the Saxon corpse. Today, it is historical necessity, to revive the Scythian martial art, and drive Pope Satan out of Europe, once and for all.
It is crucial, to distinguish between Scythian yoga, and Jesuit national socialism. Modern Saxons are naturally drawn to the former, and become confused, by the latter. Scythian yoga was an empire killer, and NOT an empire builder for Pope Satan. Latter is slavery!
To separate the original Scythian component, away from political national socialism, is to destroy Jesuit mind control, and also Pope Satan’s means to create controlled oppositions, in fake national movements. Scythian yoga is spiritual warfare!
Scythian martial art – as defense against the dark arts – is highly logical, and entertaining, like Harry Potter. American hippies subscribe to RUNES and YOGA, and they are welcome to become my useful idiots…

The Scythians were born in the saddle, and learned archery in childhood. Skillfulness alone would not have brought down the Assyrian empire.
It was added mixture of drinking culture, that drove the edge, and natural philosophy, in martial art – based on alchemy – that overthrew the Assyrian empire.
Today, peaceful weaponization of yoga is returning to Scythian origin. A knight, who knows how to joust, may choose not to fight, from a position of strength.
Of course, Seventh Seal broken is Pendragon yoga.

A recent hypothesis is, that the brand of “Elohim-Yahweh” represents a forged alliance, between astronomical and agricultural ideologies.
Following a dispute about leadership, those two ideologies emerge again, and go separate ways, by following natural tendencies: metropolis vs suburbia.
When the Jacobs refuse to give up the divine kingship, the Isaacs respond, by designing a new criterion for a secular kingship, that becomes Runes & Yoga.
This internal debate of the Zodiac tribe, that took place before, during and after captivity, would not have been unknown in Britain. Therefore Runes are old news, in the sixth century AD.
Papacy is not interested in a secular kingship, because then the pope has no magic power, to bestow upon monarchy, and the ritualized drama in the Parliament becomes comedy.
