HOW MIND OVER MATTER WORKS
By K. C. Blair, Founder, Director

In retelling an old story I recently made a discovery that I want to share.

Almost thirty years ago my wife, Sheila, and I were standing in the light coming through our kitchen windows. We were about four feet from each other. Sheila was holding our fourteen-week old first-born son, Keith, so we could see each other as we were communicating.

I said to Sheila, “Keith looks so intelligent. It seems like he should be able to talk.” Sheila agreed. I said, “Keith, say cracker.” Keith said, “Cracker.”

First, Sheila and I stopped everything, being in shock. Next, we became very excited, happy and loud and Keith joined in the fun. Then Sheila and I, less emotional, talked about having experienced his first word. Finally, we tried to get Keith to talk more but it did not happen. Eventually he turned out to be an early walker but late talker.

Throughout the years I have told many parents what happened, looking for similar stories; there were none.

Recently, while I was retelling this story in an email to Charles Tart for his TASTE website I had an epiphany. I realized it was not about my first-born talking early but the three of us creating an impossible reality. Keith, without ever having said an intelligible syllable and not saying one for a few months after, had said, “Cracker.” He did not hesitate or stammer as he made voice sounds from the vocal cords, coordinating and combining with his tongue and lips as he put two perfect syllables together and all without any practice.

Instead of discussing with other parents, what I thought to be possible but improbable with our babies, I should have been discussing with anyone, using mind over matter to create impossibilities. Think about it. What Keith did and how we orchestrated it were impossible.

So I started thinking of others who have done the impossible. The first person who came to mind was Dean Radin, a scientist I highly respect. I heard him say in a talk show interview a while back that some time ago he was on an airplane getting ready to eat, back when airlines provided metal eating utensils. Sitting there, he decided to bend his knife (or fork?) using only his mind; the knife bent.

Next, I started thinking about all of the consciousness researchers, including myself, who have conducted scientific experiments, successfully. Princeton PEAR was the first laboratory of which I had heard doing this; it eventually changed my life. PEAR had volunteers, called operators, sit in front of random event generators and try to influence the outcomes with their minds. A Wired article reported two-thirds of the operators succeeded, when one-half would have been due to chance alone. Michael Ibison, a mathematical physicist was quoted, “The operators are roughly altering one bit in 1,000.” “That means if you had a coin toss psychokinesis could affect one of those coin tosses if you tossed a thousand times.” See PEAR research.

In the same “Mind over Matter” article PEAR’s Brenda Dunne explained that the most successful operators influencing randomness were couples “with an emotional attachment.” Keith, Sheila and I had the power of three.

Other consciousness researchers are William Tiller and his team, who have successfully transferred information from their minds to positively influence organic and inorganic objects. They also transferred information to a small box and also a larger room, which in turn transferred that information to influence living and nonliving things. Many others have conducted experiments of the mind, influencing mice and other animals. Others have conducted experiments from human minds to human bodies over a great distance, usually for healing purposes. My own experiments were of minds influencing people at a distance to enhance healing and productivity behavior. That was about twice as successful on average as when we sent, profitably, direct mail ads, coupons and samples to influence purchasing behavior.

Keith’s Lesson
With hindsight it now seems that Sheila and I were interacting with Keith in a loving relationship to create an “impossible” reality of a baby saying “Cracker” before its time. We succeeded, as did Dean Radin with his knife and many other consciousness scientists in their distant healing experiments with their larger random samples of people.

The lesson from Keith that took me thirty years to learn is that with love everything is possible, including the impossible. The only limits are our beliefs, when they make the possible impossible.

Creating the feelings of love is the best way to go through the day and life to get what you want. Creating compassion enhances everything positively correlated with it, even making the impossible possible. It is the source of synchronicities.

It looks to this researcher that Mind creates everything. For my mind to maximize its participation and success, it needs to be open and connected to Mind, the current Source of all information and energy, past, present and future. But a mind also needs to be free to explore, learn and transfer information and energy through Mind to successfully adapt and survive in its changing environment.

There seems to be an affinity to be connected with each other through resonance or love, forming Mind. My wholeness reflects my mind resonating with Mind. My deviation from wholeness, due to a lack of resonance, is the biggest threat to my well-being. It results in dissonance and its warning symptoms of disrepair -- depression, pain, sickness and disease. To stay connected or to reconnect with Mind, my mind creates compassion, which is new, incremental love.

Resonance to the scientist is love to the poet.
