Yes Z, but Ruth doesn’t seem to have a problem with discussing the implications of precognition as a possibly real phenomenon.  Like me she seems to be willing to discuss it, but not to go out on a limb and wholeheartedly agree with Jack.  So, we were discussing whether precognition would definitely favor Jack’s theory, or whether it could be explained in her theory as well.  She and I both seemed to make the point that viewing of future events doesn’t necessarily mean that someone is viewing the only possible future – there could be a number of possible futures.

 

Actually, on this point I remember reading some books by Lyall Watson back in the 1980s or early 1990s.  Watson had various of these sorts of psychic precognition examples listed.  I remember that he specifically claimed that aircraft, trains or other vehicles that are going to crash statistically have fewer people on them – that there is a rash of last-minute cancellations before the trip.  I don’t know how rigorous his statistics were and whether this is really true.  However, just assuming for a moment that it is, and that people do have an innate precognitive sense, what does Watson’s argument imply about the future?

 

As I remember Watson’s argument, he is not saying that people have a specific vision of dying in a fiery crash (although IIRC he claims that sometimes that does happen) but just that people get a bad feeling about the trip and come up with some excuse to cancel and do something else.  The precognition in his argument therefore happens at a sort of half-conscious level.

 

Either the people who last minute cancel are never going to die/are not “supposed” to die (whatever that means; maybe Jack’s future cosmological horizon quantum computer is post-determining that they live longer), and the precognition happens in order to actualize the future that is there all along.  Or, the cancellations are simply weird effects at a classical level, kind of like a Novikov self-consistency principle that would cause odd coincidences to happen to prevent you from changing history if you travelled to the past through a wormhole.

 

Alternatively, a future existed in which those people did die, and they precognitively sensed it, and so actualized a different future where they avoided death.  This would mean that the future is changeable through precognition, so multiple possible futures must exist.

For example, the Marshall Naify had extraordinary powers akin to Uri Geller’s and Ingo Swann. I personally experienced “mental time travel” with him (shared telepathic experience) to past events (Ancient Egypt, Middle Ages). He saw the potential of cable TV early and was one of the creators of what led to Comcast.
I have also noticed other evidence in them of paranormal talent.
I am not saying this as a scientific fact - only a subjective observation - folklore.
I am not saying that 100% of the 1% are precognitive but that a significant fraction are.

Question, for Jack, et al...
Is it possible... or have you considered (seriously, with respect)... that what's in play here is a form of human perception perhaps located somewhere on the autism spectrum, even higher-functioning than Asperger's?
 
I am not a brain neuroscientist. I do not know.
 
If such a condition were to allow "tuning" to different signals from what "typical" receivers (people, brains) are capable of picking up. Not to imply "disability" or abnormality, per se, but a "stretch" in what most people are able to perceive... or perceive and retain in consciousness. Also, Jack's signal had to have a 'sender,' who quite likely would know about the "tuning" aspect of human perception, in the 1950s quite new to us.

This doesn't explain "contacts" by some kind of external source using conventional physical means (i.e., the telephone); could these have been an effort to "simulate extraordinary stimulation" by scientists studying such phenomena. I.e., if selected for programming, how to reach Jack (others?) without alarming them?
 
Well, the phone calls were real. Who made them is still a mystery.
 
Conversely, "extraordinary" ET or UT entities intending to contact and influence (this young scientist, retrocausally identified from the future) could have used the telephone because "supernatural" modalities of such "contact" might have triggered a psychotic break or other rejection reaction, by Jack's mother or any subsequently engaged psychiatrists brought in to "help" normalize their target, getting him locked away or chemically restrained, as quite obviously has happened to many other such "revelatees" over millennia?
 
That did not happen to me. But remember I was part of the USG superkids project out of Columbia University AFTER the phone calls throughout high-school with early admission into Ivy League Cornell with full scholarship for four years.

"IT" used the phone because that approach would not necessarily provoke a panicked response the way a "Biblical" manifestion of revelatory experience likely would have, i.e., "messianic" distortion or psychic break.
 
Either way, the net effect was to recontextualize Jack's personality and "genius," providing direction (both overt and subliminally, likely) and opening his mind to a stream of ongoing but more subtle signals later on.
 
Credulity, post-exposure, would be interesting to some scientists contemporaneous to the experience?

      From my Starship book under construction
      Only recently, Lenny Susskind and his students working on hologram universe ideas rediscovered this “ER = EPR”[i] connection in a more mathematically rigorous manner than my precognitive remote viewing intuitions over forty years ago. Back then no one else was linking EPR with ER to my knowledge. I conjecture, semiseriously given the claims of Puthoff and Targ at SRI[ii], that since Lenny and I worked together at Cornell in 1963-4 that I was glimpsing his work of 2012 back then in 1974.

      1973: H. G. Ellis’s “drainhole,” the first plausible stargate candidate where the gravity wormhole is coupled to a massless negative energy spin zero field. That year is also a year of high strangeness, but that story is not for this book.

      1974: Hawking shows that all black holes radiate black body radiation[i] whose peak wavelength lmax is roughly the square root of the area-entropy of the black hole’s horizon, i.e., lmax ~ A1/2 where the entropy S ~ kBA/4.

      During this time I conjectured in the pop physics book “Space-Time and Beyond” that Einstein-Rosen bridges and Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky[ii] quantum entanglement[iii] were two sides of the same coin in some yet not well understood sense. This was a precognitive intuition on my part.

      Remember I wrote the quote below in 1974 almost 40 years ago. See David Kaiser's "How the Hippies Saved Physics" about me and my associates back then. We were way ahead of the pack.

      From the 1975 book Space-Time and Beyond E.P. Dutton co-authored with Fred Alan Wolf and artist Bob Toben - First edition. p. 134 "Each part of space is connected to every other part through basic units of interconnection, called wormholes. Signals move through the constantly appearing and disappearing (virtual) wormhole connections, providing instant communication between all parts of space. These signals can be likened to pulses of nerve cells of a great cosmic brain that permeates all parts of space. This is a point of view motivated by Einstein's general theory of relativity in the form of geometrodynamics. A parallel point of view is given in the quantum theory as interpreted by Bohm. In my opinion this is no accident because I suspect that general relativity and quantum theory are simply two complementary aspects of a deeper theory that will involve a kind of cosmic consciousness as the key concept. Bohm writes of “quantum interconnectedness": 

      However there has been too little emphasis on what is, in our view, the most fundamentally different new feature of all, i.e., the intimate interconnection of different systems that are not in spatial contact ... the well known experiment of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen ... Recently interest in this question has been stimulated by the work of Bell..." D. Bohm & B. Hiley...

      End of excerpt from 1975 Space-Time and Beyond.

      The Wheeler-Fuller pinch-off would then correspond to signal locality (later called “passion at a distance”) corresponding to unitary linear orthodox quantum theory. Stargate traversable wormholes would correspond to what Antony Valentini would years later call “signal nonlocality” in a more general post-quantum theory that was both non-unitary and nonlinear in the sense later clarified independently by Steven Weinberg[iv] and Henry Stapp. [v]

Jack,
 
Your "magick mushroom" download, circa 1979... (actually, quite late in the psychedelic physics thing?)... is reminiscent of Dr. John Lilly's recounting of his earliest "visits" with Higher Beings in upper satori states as he did his own "traveling" in such realms, first with LSD propelling him from his  isolation-flotation tanks. He recounted in his "Center of the Cyclone" how he made seeming "contact" with these "beings," but they so much as told him he was too stoned to interact meaningfully... and suggested he come back "straight.”

JS: That’s right. Remember Lilly had Feynman come to Esalen and Feynman did experiment with psychedlics in Big Sur when he knew he was dying of what I think was radiation exposure from the Manhattan Project. Lilly and Feynman were old friends from Cal Tech.
 
DF: Lilly said he then went to Chile and did the meditation thing with Oscar Ichazo, eventually meeting up again with what seemed (to Lilly) to be the same "beings," and having a more memorable interaction with them.
http://books.google.com/books/about/Center_of_the_Cyclone.html?id=8sj8AfrVseYC
 
Wonder whether you've written and/or published whether you perceive that your 1953 "phone call" from the beings you recall communicating with  you are/were involved in any of your subsequent "travels" into such realms?

JS: Remember my 1953 contact was very UN-PSYCHEDELIC. I was only about 13 years old in a blue-collar Irish-German-Italian-Jewish/Catholic neighborhood in Flatbush. The phone call(s) were very material mechanical and my mother witnessed at least one of them. This was a real incident not the imaginings of a child.
 
DF: Also, an associate of Dr. Ray Moody, one Robin Andrews Quayle, back in the late 1980s, early '90s, did some work with "mass UFO experiencers," then later with what are termed "ETI Prodigies," i.e., people who had a perceived interaction and/or "information download" with and from "ETs," relaying or bestowing knowledge of "innovative technologies," etc., and who frequently were unable to make real sense of same because they lacked formal education and thus, "vocabulary" and ability to "do the math," to manifest any productivity or progress as a result of the "data dump.”


JS: Exactly my point. BTW Hal Puthoff needs to clarify if he also had a similar contact about the same time - we are close in age. I had a private dinner with Hal about 1999 when Joe Firmage invited him out to ISSO and something Hal said to me indicated that he had - but perhaps I misunderstood him? Joe Firmage’s contact like Dan Throop Smith’s was more subjective and could be explained as a brain malfunction - a delusion unlike mine. Uri Geller also had a more mechanical contact like mind about the same time (early 1950’s) witnessed by a then young Israeli army recruit who later rose high in the ranks and outed himself on Israeli TV a few years ago. Check with Uri for details.
 
DF: There’s considerable Internet "conversation" about said "extraterrestrial prodigies," as a quick search shows, and most provocative (and perhaps relevant here) are accounts of "child prodigies" with decidedly "ET alien" coloration. Some of these (ETI prodigy) folks also became rather "paranoid," Robin reported, because they feared that "powers that be" would be "after them" to steal or more likely to "prevent" what they had been "given" from contributing to human progress at the expense of "status quo" dominant tech.

JS: Sure, lots of crazies are attracted to UFOs as well as to the Tea Party and to Occupy. ;-)
 
DF: There actually was a 1993 conference of these folks, held in the mountains of north Georgia (in the US, not the Near East ;-) to which I was invited and which I attended, while still working as Director of Project Development for the Human Potential Foundation, the nonprofit founded by Senator Pell, funded by Hans Adam II of Liechtenstein and the late Laurance S. Rockefeller, et al. We have the monograph by Ms. Quayle on the "ETI Prodigies" findings, and are continuing to "work it." So your experiences, which you've so candidly been discussing for 'lo these many years, are helpful to what is a fascinating, if not much publicly discussed, facet of the broader "exceptional information" source study. ;-)

JS: I tell it like it really happened. Obviously I would not lie about it since it gives people like Lubos Motl ammunition to attack my physics ideas as a delusional UFO nut and it also led Antony Valentini being pressured to disinvite me to the Bohm Conference I had conceived of with Michael Towler at Cambridge in the first place. See the Wikipedia page on me for details and references.
 
Best,
 
Dick Farley CloudRider@aol.com

PS -- These are, at least to my colleagues and I, much more interesting questions about the "UFO/ET" and claimed-perceived "contacts," particularly when people who've gone on to accomplish demonstrable stuff are involved. And of course it underpinned my previous query in this thread which also criticized "UFO chaff" as being a distraction from what is potentially more relevant to our understanding of what may be going on. ;-)

Recently was reviewing work of Stewart Edward White... author of "The Betty Book," trance channeled by his wife, Elizabeth Grant White ("Betty) and published in the late 1930s, after nearly twenty years of work by "Betty," transcribed by her husband, Stewart.
 
He also published (after Betty's "death," although she continued "contact" and contributions to their effort, or so Stewart believed and wrote) at least two more in the most relevant sequence, "Across the Universe" and "The Unobstructed Universe."
 
Similar to "The Seth Material" as channeled by Jane Roberts (and transcribed by her husband), a generation later, the Whites' material has many references to (non-physicists) attempting to convey "literarily" what she was "seeing" and what the entities they called the "Invisibles" were supposedly showing and teaching them.
 
If we consider that the "signal" is coming through, and the sensitivities to RECEIVING same (as opposed to being able to understand and even articulate "in the language of physics" such insights and revelations), it is akin to what has often been described by "UFO experiencers," who receive "data" and who "see things" but are unable, because of their lack of training and vocabulary, or because what they "see" is so at variance with human technology and vernacular as to be "indescribable," making the occasional "download" to the wandering physicist that much more interesting, even allowing for a translatable "breakthrough."
 
That's what Hynek hoped might happen, as I understood what he was saying and trying to do when he was so sadly taken "off planet."
 
Just saying... your stuff remains among the most interesting "Out There," and your efforts to explain the Higgs thingy have been both helpful and entertaining.
 
Keep it up, Jack!
 
Best,
