Lessons in Chronosthsia- Part 2

In the previous posting I showed you a basic thought experiment where you use multiplexing to be simultaneously aware of the same room multiple times. In this Chronosthesia thought experiment were going to a few seconds forward in time.

To start, follow the guided experiment in Lessons In Chronosthesia to the very end where you practiced reconstructing realities using as many gathered sensory details from your present environment as possible. At this point you should be both in the room relaxed, in this room flexing your muscles, and now were going to add a new channel. Start to visualize the room a third time with your body in one of the two states, depending on which you find easier to move forward from. When you have three brain channels open, bring two to the foreground to begin this experiment.

In the previous exercise, you took mental snapshots of the room including the doorways. Look towards the doorway in the two channels and feel the front of your legs tighten as they lift your body up. Remember, this should feel like you’re simultaneously seeing the room, then from the same frame of reference you’re looking towards the door and beginning to stand up, and then a second frame of reference looking towards the door and beginning to stand up. This is three channel perception. Now were starting to get into some quantum physics, but with an elementary touch.

In the two standing channels, visualize walking towards the doorway but not going any further. Feel the ever so gentle whoosh of the air as you cut through it, blowing on your face and through your hair. Stand in the doorway with hands at your side in one of the frames, and with the other reach out and touch the doorway. Feel with your hands the width of the doorway, the color and texture of the moulding. Scratch your nails on the surface and simulate the sound it would make. Then put your hands back down to your side synchronous with the other frame currently standing in the doorway. You should once again be in the doorway looking out from two frames of reference, while also visualizing the room as you are sitting where you presently are.

Now open your eyes, and walk to the doorway. Reach out and feel the doorways width, texture, hardness. See its color, and hear the sound of your nails really scratching against its surface. Then compare with your visualization. How accurate were you able to reconstruct reality from experience? Were the sounds the same, the feeling on your flesh similar? If so, good. You mentally traveled a few seconds forward in time through the multiverse of probabilities and then consciously found yourself at the same temporal junction point. If you weren’t able to get through this thought experiment, refer back to the first guided visualization before attempting again.

Where do we go from here? With practice triple channel perception becomes easier and easier to construct an accurate model of reality for a few moments forward in time. When you can clearly complete this thought experiment I recommend taking it a few seconds further, and allowing one of the frames of reference to move forward through the doorway a few steps. Try to conceptualize everything just beyond the door from the frame of reference of being beyond the doorway. Then open eyed walk through and compare how you’ve done adding the few seconds on to the few seconds you’ve already mastered.

What implications can this have? Many real world applications that will be discussed in future posts. One of the applications is the greater ability to make judgements based on calculating consequences of multiple actions before taking one. Another is a state of heightened learning, where multiplexing encodes the information you’re trying to learn multiple times…resulting in higher memory retention at a faster rate. Finally for now, your memory recall will become significantly enhanced as you learn to activate multiple centers of your brain storing information simultaneously.

It may be a while before the next lesson in Chronosthesia, since the effort required will become significantly harder with future thought experiments, I want to give readers time to master moving a few seconds forward in time. Future posts will deal with reconstructing the past, and shaping futures. All of these lead to a greater mastery if what we time travelers call “The Ripple Effect.” Eventually you will learn to function using many more than three channels of perception.

It will begin to feel like this.

Lessons in Chronosthesia

Dear readers,

I wish I could tell you who I truly am, but as it has yet to occur here I do not want to jeopardize my own future.

Chronosthesia or “mental time travel” is the ability to perceive multiple pasts, presents, and futures simultaneously. This is something some people are born with, and something people can learn. I am going to guide you through a really basic thought experiment on multiplexing, or multiple awareness.

Close your eyes, and begin to slow your breathing. Breathe slowly and deeply through the nose, exhaling gently through the mouth. Take in the sensory detail of the air you’re breathing. Is it cool, crisp air? Is it warm and moist? Or is it simply clear, clean, and fulfilling? Is there an odor in the air, if so what is it? Where else do you know it from? Don’t dwell too long on past thoughts right now because presently you should be making mental notes of your present environment.

Tighten your feet, then release. Tighten your calves and quads, then release. Flex your front, and feel all of your muscles tighten. Feel the strength of your own body as you tighten and release all of your muscles gently. Feel gravity gently pull you downwards, giving weight to you.

Now open your eyes briefly and let the light hit your eyes. Take in the colors, textures, and height or the walls. Look around and take quick mental snapshots of the furniture and decorations. Are there people around you? If so what are they wearing, how is their hair parted, do they have a unibrow? Continuing to add even the most insignificant of sensory details will add to the realism.

Close your eyes again and listen with your ears. Quiet your mind of all “talking” thoughts, and see if you can hear the air circulating around you. It is so faint and unnoticeable that you will often times be unaware of it, but it is a very active part in your unconscious perception. Now hear the sounds of birds or crickets chirping, of your breath exhaling, of electricity flowing to your technology if your nearby a plug. If there are other sounds, continue to add them to this exercise.

Now here is where we begin to delve into the actual Chronosthesia Effect.

With your eyes still closed, and your breathing slowed, visualize the room as if you had your eyes open. Use the mental snapshots you took earlier to reconstruct the room around you. Now you should still be fully aware or your other sensory perceptions because you’ve only just substituted your sight for this thought experiment. But soon we will begin multiplexing and it will be harder and harder to hold on to the same level of detail the more channels you open in the beginning. Think of your current conscious awareness as a stream of information that your brain combines into one scene called reality. Now think of Chronosthesia as being aware of multiple realities simultaneously.

Return to the visualization, and open up a new channel of consciousness. It may be easier to think of it like this; visualize it as a dream that you put on a virtual reality headset and become immersed in the sensory detail of the cyber environment, while simultaneously being aware you’re in a dream. That’s adding one additional channel of thoughtspace. In each channel you have all of the sight, sound, touch, smell, sometimes taste sensations you do in the wakeful state. This is going to be the hardest thing to grasp on to, as it’s not thinking of simultaneous events happening like two tvs next to each other….it’s thinking as if you’re two different people witnessing the same event from the same frame of reference multiple times.

When you do this, your waking sensory feelings will feel amplified as you become hyper aware of your single channel of consciousness.

To keep my posts relatively manageable in size I will conclude with adding one more layer of visualization to this thought experiment.

Return to the multiplexing state, where you are aware of your environment at least two to three times simultaneously. With your eyes closed, your breathing controlled, and your body still, bring one of the visualizations to the forefront. Visualize all of the sensory details as if they were happening right now at the same time, and begin to take it farther. Without moving your body, visualize flexing your fists. Feel your muscles tighten as you flex your forearms and biceps. Be sure not to move from your meditative state, but within your multiplexing state continue to flex your entire body. Feel all of your muscles tighten, while simultaneously feeling the relaxed state your body is currently in.

When you can do this, you’re ready for step two.
