Study Suggests Mediumship May Be A Distinct Mental State

seanceAttempting to contact the dead puts people into a unique mental state, the Daily Grail reports:

A new study co-authored by Dean Radin and Julie Beischel has found that electrocortical activity during mediumistic ‘communication’ is distinctly different than during other contemplative moments such as thinking about living or imaginary people.

The research was done to explore two questions: possible correlations between the accuracy of mediums’ statements and the electrical activity in their brain; and the differences in mediums’ brain activity when they intentionally evoked four different subjective states.

To do so, the researchers collected psychometric and brain electrophysiology data from “six individuals who had previously reported accurate information about deceased individuals under double-blind conditions” (ie. mediums).

The researchers conclude[d] that the differences in electrocortical activity “suggest that the impression of communicating with the deceased may be a distinct mental state distinct from ordinary thinking or imagination”.

    The don’t call it an ‘altered state of consciousness’ for nothing…

    I just read that the original “Aryan History” that the nazis used to justify all their crazy shit was “channeled” to a defrocked monk back in the 1880’s. You really need to re-examine your reality if you follow any ideology that is “channeled”.

      I recommend reading Korean shamanism the cultural paradox by chongho Kim and journey of a healer mediums and sorcerers of south Vietnam by hien van nguyen because they analyze a medium’s capacity for noetic knowledge in depth.

      Vietnamese sorcery is a syncretic mix of ancient Chinese sorcery system, Buddhism, daoism, hermeticism and free masonry/Christianity . no joke. Influenced by French colonialism.

      Vietnamese still use Ouija boards as they did during the French occupation in the 1920s etc
