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,
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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.
