Journal Club – Gamma radiation fluctuations during alternative healing therapy

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: April 21, 2018 (Saturday)

Rainsong
@everyone Is anyone outside my physical household likely to take part in the “Journal Club” seminar this evening?

Turbo
C’et quoi?

rowinha
I always read it, even if I’m busy during the actual discussion.

rowinha
Fun articles.

Rainsong
Rowinha: Cool

Rainsong
Turbo: Discussion of a peer-reviewed article. This one’s a fairly old one (1999) about gamma radiation and Polarity Therapy.

Rainsong
I’m re-introducing Journal Club into the seminar series because I’m a pedantic nerd, so I want folks to know a) that peer-reviewed scientific articles about psionics-related stuff exists, and b) how to go about actually reading the stuff.

Psionic Signatures

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: March 24, 2018 (Saturday)

Rainsong – Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to our Saturday-night seminar here at the social club The usual disclaimers apply: we’ll be discussing real-world psionics, rather than role-playing and video game stuff. Our topic for the evening is “Psionic Signatures”, at the request of Dr Strange Stuff, who appears not to be online at the moment. No matter, he can read the log later, if he feels like it. Are there any questions or comments before we start?

Scelana – I don’t have any atm

Silkysky – None from me.

Rainsong – As we often do, we’ll start with a Friendly Definition, because terminology isn’t exactly standardized across communities in psionics… much less the wider magic-using community

Journal Club – Puthoff’s 1996 Account of the CIA’s RV Program

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: March 17, 2018 (Saturday)

Rainsong – Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to this evening’s seminar here at the social club. We’ll be discussing an academic paper.

CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing Program at Stanford Research Institute. Hal Puthoff. 1996.

On the one hand, it’s largely historical and commentary, rather than the usual sort of scientific-journal paper. On the other hand, that also makes for an easier read, so maybe it won’t turn out to be a totally bad choice for our first attempt at this kind of seminar in… lots of years. I chose it because it wasn’t behind a paywall, which my first choice was. And – to be honest – I read it for the first time today. It was in my queue of “background resources” for a book I’m working on.

Does anyone have any questions or comments before we get started?

Basic Gel Shield Tutorial

Written by Eyilwrass

This tutorial is simple, and is intended for beginners, but can be used as a basis for more advanced works. As such, it will be brief, without any embellishment.

  1. Focus, and center yourself.
  2. Create a psi-ball. This will be the basis of your shield, and the greater amount of energy put into it, the stronger it is.
  3. Push the intent for this energy to be protective into it, using any visualisation needed.
  4. Cause the energy to move over you, flowing over you like a thick gel.
  5. Once it has encompassed you, push the intent for it to set and harden into it, again, using whatever visualisation needed.

Basic, simple, five min shield. First tutorial I wrote up, first shield I used. Still use the base concept.

Notes from channel discussion about the shield:

Azarea: that is actually way shorter than I was expecting lol

Azarea: also this is interesting because it’s the first shield I see that uses a second skin type model instead of a sphereish thing

Eyilwrass: Heard that before, I’ve found it works better for stealth type stuff myself, but everyone works differently

Eyilwrass: Oddly enough… The sphere type shields make me feel somewhat claustrophobic, but that design doesn’t.

Use of Chakras and Other Energy Systems in Psionics

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: March 10, 2018 (Saturday)

Rainsong
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to another psionics seminar here at the social club.

By request, tonight’s topic is the use of chakras and other energy systems in psionics.

More to the point, I was asked how I use chakras, and other systems.

Rainsong
The answer to the first part of the question is pretty easy: I generally don’t.

I’ve trained with them in half a dozen contexts, but typically I don’t use that model.

We’ll be discussing it, anyway…
