Do Scientists Fear Unknown Technology?
Ross Pomery – Steven “Ross” Pomeroy is an Editor of RealClearScience. A zoologist and conservation biologist by training, Ross has nurtured a passion for journalism and writing his entire life. Ross weaves his insatiable curiosity and passion for science into regular posts and articles on RealClearScience’s Newton Blog. Additionally, his work has appeared in Science Now and Scientific American.”
Pomery has not worked on the front lines with schizophrenics at all, and yet in response to a paper written by a Turkish Researcher (which will be addressed in a moment), Ross quotes Wikipedia in his effort to debunk the premise of the Turkish paper:
“SCHIZOPHRENIA IS A debilitating brain disorder characterized by hallucinations, confused thinking, and abnormal social behavior. Sufferers often struggle to recognize what is real and what isn’t. Its causes are still up for debate, but most experts believe that it’s tied to an imbalance in brain chemistry and is — to a degree — genetically inherited. One thing for certain, however, is that schizophrenia is not caused by demonic possession. Any “scientific” journal that posits otherwise lends credibility to every witch doctor or religious fanatic who has attempted to exorcise demons from patients with serious mental illness. The world needs less magic and more evidence-based medicine.”
The Turkish paper in question is by Prof. M.K. Irmak, High Council of Science, Gulhane Military Medical Academy, Ankara, Turkey, GATA YBK, 06018 Etlik, Ankara, Turkey, titled “Title: Schizophrenia or Possession?”. Read his paper here.
Back to the debunking effort.
First, there’s been a lot of talk and lots of papers about the “chemical brain imbalance” theory, and like Elliot Vallenstein, Ph.D. wrote in his book Blaming the Brain: “A theory that is wrong is considered preferable to admitting our ignorance.”
Well, okay. The idea that depression and other mental health conditions are caused by an imbalance of chemicals in the brain is deeply ingrained in modern academia. So, now this idea is in the psyche of society in general and to question this long-standing theory seems to be against academic law.
Blaming the Brain: “Over the last thirty years, there has been a radical shift in thinking about the causes of mental illness. The psychiatric establishment and the health care industry have shifted 180 degrees from blaming mother to blaming the brain as the source of mental disorders. Whereas experience and environment were long viewed as the root causes of most emotional problems, now it is common to believe that mental disturbances — from depression and anxiety to schizophrenia — are determined by brain chemistry. And many people have come to accept the broader notion that their very personalities are determined by brain chemistry as well.” […] “There are few rewards waiting for the person who claims that “the emperor is really nude” or who claims that we really do not know what causes depression or why an antidepressant sometimes helps to relieve this condition.”
Scientific Humanism – according to the Oxford Dictionary – “A form of humanist theory and practice that is based on the principles and methods of science; specifically the doctrine that human beings should employ scientific methods in studying human life and behavior, in order to direct the welfare and future of mankind in a rational and beneficial manner. Origin Mid 19th Century.”
This was the era of Darwin, Engels and Marx. It was the era labeled “the march of science”, throwing away philosophy, knowledge, culture, education, and art birthed by the ancient Greeks, turning life from elevating humans into biological machines. That perception still exists and it misses, even suppresses, the point that there is more to humans than that. So humanism became scientific humanism and anyone that sees life as greater than mere machines is labeled “wrong”, “quack”, “insane”, “archaic” and “unscientific” by the current establishment that wants to direct the future of mankind in accordance with 19th Century thinking.
Second, to the uninitiated, magic and technology are the same. It’s like showing a cell phone to a caveman. It’s magic! Should we fear it or wonder and investigate it further?
Arthur C. Clarke’s second law:
The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
Arthur C. Clarke’s third law:
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
However, to the initiated – the ones that are actually seeking truth – technology that is not understood is worth researching to learn, to find out how it works, to figure it out. The initiated that are so fixed in what they’ve been trained to believe by academia, have an immediate propensity – a knee-jerk reaction – to label technology beyond their training as wrong, impossible, a myth. We don’t need any magic in the equation.
Quantum physics allows for dimensions beyond the three-dimensional world with which we are so familiar. It allows for more than the five-senses humans know: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. It allows for remote viewing, psychic phenomena, and what we call paranormal experiences. It allows for entanglement – Einstein’s spooky action at a distance – in science. We in Western society have a tough time understanding Eastern mysticism and we do not consider it science because mysticism is beyond the five-senses therefore not worth investigating. And yet, isn’t it funny that the USA military studies remote viewing, psychic phenomena and the paranormal. They must all be quacks too!
Many biologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and other scientists have taken a mechanistic view of life. They have the notion that “the malfunctioning of biological organisms which are studied from the point of view of cellular and molecular biology; the doctor’s role is to intervene, either physically or chemically, to correct the malfunctioning of a specific mechanism.” (Fritof Capra “Turning Point” p.123)
They fail to look at the whole system as a whole system, replete with many mysteries. The sum of the parts is far greater than the individual parts – they are all connected and all function together as a whole. The system of life is far from mechanistic in nature and beyond what we call the physical world.
Third, to achieve evidence-based medicine, the medical community probably needs to bone up on the world of quantum physics instead of automatically calling new findings outrageous, lies, and myths without so much as looking into the new findings. Psychiatrists in particular need to stop writing new made up diseases in their DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) publications and look for real causes of depression and other conditions.
Can paranormal be classified as technology?
Para – a Greek word that, in the word Paranormal means “beyond or past by”. So paranormal means beyond or past by normal.
The word Normal refers to that which is common, accepted and familiar. Humans flying was not common prior to the airplane being invented so the idea of humans flying was deemed by society, including the experts, as impossible, not normal, and therefore paranormal.
Referring to demons as a cause of schizophrenia falls into the same category today as flying did before the airplane was invented.
The reason scientists fear this idea is because psychic powers and other phenomenon have not been proven scientifically, they say. This is because scientists are unaware of the research or refuse to take a serious look at the data. Clearly many psychiatrists and psychologists find claims of paranormal activity as a cause for schizophrenia very disturbing. It goes against everything they learned in Universities.
But this fear doesn’t mean the evidence does not exist. There are several terms used for what is being discussed here:
- Demons – used by many religion since religions were invented
- Satan – used by many religions and cults
- Archons – used by Gnostics thousands of years ago
- Multidimensional Aliens and Entities – used by researchers of the existence of extraterrestrials
- Flyers – used by Shamans
Whatever term is used, it means the same thing: Beings from a dimension we cannot see with our eyes, that use technology beyond our understanding, invade people’s thoughts, often making those thoughts sound like their own. More scientists need to investigate the reality of this technology.
Evidence shows these invisible beings are attracted to negative energy that people emit when they are upset or disturbed by something. Evidence also shows that after a person has been attacked by one or more of these beings, the person feels drained of their energy. This suggests that the beings use people’s negative energy as sustenance or refueling in some way. . . food to survive for another day of attacking people in this way.
The evidence is from many years of observation by scientists that are not afraid to look beyond Normal in an effort to figure out what is happening to people. I’m not sure we have the technology to measure these beings yet. We already have the technology to measure the energetic fields around our bodies but that may not be advanced enough to detect the invisible beings:
Although scientists never widely embraced the Kirlian technique, research was conducted (Boyers and Tiller, 1973; Krippner and Rubin, 1973) and culminated in the founding of the International Kirlian Research Association in the United States in 1976, no longer in existence. The Kirlian technique was used clinically in Germany for decades, and the Vega-Grieshaber Company manufactured cameras to record the Kirlian emission of hands and feet.
The GDV camera (Gas Discharge Visualization) uses pulses (10-microsecond) of high-frequency (1024 Hz), high-voltage electricity (10-15 kV) that is selectable from several ranges. The time exposure of the sample is selectable from 0.5 to 30 seconds. In addition to still digital photography, recording digital video is also possible for up to 30 seconds. A charge-coupled detector (CCD), which is a standard detector of low-level visible light used in telescopes and other scientific instruments, detects the pattern of photons emitted from each fingertip.
The electromagnetic field around humans really does exist whether psychiatrists recognize this or not. This frequency field changes when our emotions change.
We know that while the frequencies of sounds, lights, foods, tides, lunar cycles, and so on affect our emotions, technologies such as Inaudible High-Frequency sounds affect brain activity.
What we don’t know is the technology used by the invisible beings that, like parasites, suck negative energy from people, causing them to feel weakened, unsettled, frightened, and in severe cases, causing them to hear audible voices in their heads, leading them to be diagnosed with schizophrenia and labeled for the rest of their lives as a schizophrenic. These other dimensional beings are the demons, archons, and flyers that are the cause of these reactions. There’s nothing organically mentally wrong with people that are attacked by these beings. Rather than blindly condemning those that are doing research on this phenomena, scientists need to open their closed minds and do some real research to help people who are being attacked. Drugging them into oblivion is not the solution for it fixes nothing.
Being afraid of the unknown doesn’t get anyone anywhere. Calling the unknown false without even looking into it because there is fear of what might be found, keeps us in the dark ages of human advancement.
