My point, precisely. Trying to explain anything to you is a waste of my time.

Maybe so, but the general reader is getting the benefit of decades of serious paranormal research and no doubt finding out stuff they never knew. It would take a lot of serious reading to accumulate all this knowledge otherwise. That is the point of forums, is it not?

Can you at least answer the question about what evidence you have that paranormal phenomena are spiritual?

Re: All metaphysical / paranormal phenomena explained

The evidence that I have that all paranormal/metaphysical events are in truth spiritual in nature is this realization, which came after 20 years of studying these events:

Each and every example of "paranormal" or "metaphysical" activity possesses a spiritual component, a spiritual connection, a spiritual essence -- an aspect that can only be explained through understanding humanity's basic spiritual nature.

This holds true from the most simple, say deja vu, to the most complex, such as remote viewing, an NDE or OBE. This is consistent for all 80+ examples I've listed in my books (and another 6-8 that I haven't added yet.)

That commonality reveals the source of these mysterious events.

I'm an old investigative newspaper editor, who always required two solid forms of proof for any serious assertion in my newspaper. Here, I've provided 80+ forms of proof for my assertion -- all paranormal/metaphysical events are in truth spiritual in nature.

Until this realization, humanity looked at the paranormal like the five blind men examining an elephant, each had a different, contradictory explanation about what an elephant looked like.

I know you are unlikely to accept this, but I didn't expect you would. This is for those other interested folks.

And it won't take "a lot of serious reading" to discover this, just one read of "Awakening The Soul."

Re: All metaphysical / paranormal phenomena explained

I've read your post several times and all that I can get from it is that you assert (your 'realization') that paranormal events are spiritual. I do not see any of the evidence I requested.

I, and many people I know, have spent decades personally investigating paranormal cases, and doing serious lab-style research, and have never come across even a hint that these are caused by a 'spiritual nature'. Indeed, a great majority of paranormal reports, when investigated thoroughly, have been found to have natural causes. Have you personally investigated any cases yourself and, if so, how did you eliminate natural causes?

You say you have 80+ 'forms of proof'. How about sharing even one with us here, please, given that they are the basis of your assertion? A bit of objective evidence is not too much to ask when you make an assertion so at odds with so many other people's careful long term scientific research.

Re: All metaphysical / paranormal phenomena explained

How mis-perceptive of you!

If discovering that every paranormal/metaphysical event you can name all have a common spiritual source/connection isn't proof enough for you, it certainly is enough for me to state my hypothesis:

That all such "paranormal" "metaphysical" "psychic" "psi" events are actually spiritual in nature/origin.

As my good friend Arthur used to say:

"All truth passes through three stages.
"First, it is ridiculed.
"Second, it is violently opposed.
"Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

Arthur Schopenhauer
German philosopher
(1788 - 1860)

This must be the ridiculing stage.

You are stating, yet again, that you've made this discovery but nowhere, in the entire thread, have you mentioned a single example of any specific objective EVIDENCE that persuaded you of it.

I have discovered many things about the causes of paranormal reports through decades of physically investigating a great number of them. I, and others, have discovered for instance that, in most cases, there are non-paranormal causes for such reports.

You say "every paranormal/metaphysical event you can name all have a common spiritual source/connection". So why not discuss just ONE such paranormal event and say precisely how you discovered it had a "common spiritual source/connection".

You must have a large body of evidence for this connection you claim, otherwise how could you draw the conclusions that you have? You can't make a discovery without evidence! Could just supply a small example of this body of evidence, please, so that we can understand how you drew your conclusions?

Re: All metaphysical / paranormal phenomena explained

The evidence is quite plainly staring you in the face -- the common spiritual connection of all paranormal/metaphysical events -- every one you can name -- which should give you a big clue as to their source/cause.

If you can't detect a spiritual element in every paranormal/metaphysical event, that's not my problem.

It's your lack of perception.

But what IS the connection? I don't see how telepathy, for instance, shows any evidence of a spiritual nature. Even if telepathy is real, it could be a quantum mechanical effect linking two living brains. How do you know it's not? What evidence do you have that it is not?

Re: All metaphysical / paranormal phenomena explained

Telepathy perfectly illustrates spirituality -- the instantaneous linkage of two minds through space, connected through their common spiritual nature, which makes the connecting linkage possible.

Spirituality posits that all minds are connected through the common field of human spiritual consciousness, which explains how many "paranormal" and "metaphysical" events function.

Quantum mechanics is turning out to be science's way of explaining the spiritual world, although it didn't begin with that intent. The discoveries of QM are bringing the world of science closer and closer to understanding spirituality.

Re: All metaphysical / paranormal phenomena explained

So is there no actual new evidence specifically supporting your idea?

What you describe is just like stuff I've heard from spiritualists and new agers for decades now. What exactly have you discovered that hasn't already been speculated about endlessly?
