My thoughts on Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP)

In an effort to better understand this article, it is important to learn the definition, and understand the meaning of ESP. ESP refers to Extra-Sensory Perception. According to unexplained stuff.com, ESP is defined by parapsychologists as “the acquisition by a human or animal mind of information it could not have received by normal, sensory means.”

When it comes to science however, some researchers and professionals, have argued that the acquisition of information through these means, are not to be considered perception, as this would require the person to know whether the knowledge acquired is right or wrong when it is first received. Instead, it takes multiple corroborations, in an effort to prove, or convince that these manifestations were indeed accurate. As you may know, this becomes very difficult to corroborate.

In science, ESP is mostly known or categorized as Pseudoscience. According to Dictionary.com, Pseudoscience, is defined as: “any of various methods, theories, or systems, as astrology, psychokinesis, or clairvoyance, considered as having no scientific basis.”

In spirituality, ESP may be known or categorized as a gift or ability. Because many people are spiritual and many others are skeptics of those things that cannot be proved with science, this topic becomes quite a difficult one to debate on, thus creating much controversy.

While I highly respect and admire science, I do believe that there are some things that cannot be explained. Extra-Sensory Perception, has affected me personally since I was a child. Rather than trying to find a scientific explanation for it, I am grateful for what makes me different.

Is there a relationship between Extra-Sensory Perception, and Bionics?

There are many claims, that pose a very interesting relationship between neurons and objects. Some of these, explain the connection between a sensory opportunity and a vehicle to carry an action out (for the purpose of this article, we will take a prosthetic per say). Extensive research on these matters, have lead the world, to state of the art technology, and impressive scientific advancement.

Some of you might ask however, Is Extra-Sensory Perception and Bionics the same thing?

Bionics and Extra-Sensory Perception, are two completely different concepts. According to dictionary.com, bionics is defined as: “The study of how humans and animals perform certain tasks and solve certain problems, and the application of the findings to the design of electronic devices and mechanical parts.” furthermore, Extra-Sensory Perception, is defined by the same source as: ” Perception or communication outside go the normal sensory capability, as in telepathy and clairvoyance.

According to the above definitions, one focuses more on physical capabilities based on existing physical conduits (nerves), for the purpose of creating devices who can extend our capabilities, or carry out the desired function within our full potential, while the other focuses on capabilities that are outside of the normal to most people.

While both of these, do involve extra-sensory functions, these are carried out in two completely different ways. Bionics, as mentioned above, involves the use of the persons’ actual nervous system. It requires the presence of a physical conduit such as nerve, regardless of whether this one works or not. The aforementioned science, then creates a portal for neurotransmission, in an effort to carry an action out.

Extra-Sensory perception however, requires the use of a sixth sense, and at times, of the senses that are not yet fully developed. Examples of ESP may include: premonitions, highly empathetic people, mind reading, mind control, communication with the spiritual world, clairvoyance, and more. In a nutshell, it involves a psychic phenomenon, that happens involuntarily. Under many circumstances, it is perceived as a heightened sense of intuition, that many people use as a tool to for further insight and clarity. Because the aforementioned effects, cannot be proved, science tends to dismiss these cases. This is a great example of why science and spirituality should always be dealt with in separate yet open-minded ways.

While there is much controversy on this subject, it is not unusual for many of us to have experienced some sort of extra-sensory perception experience, at some point or another in life. One of the most common manifestations of these, occur through dreams. Dreaming of an event that later happens, reuniting with a friend that you have not seen in a long time, and even Deja vu, all fall under the umbrella of ESP.

While the concept of extra-sensory perception, has been around since the 1930’s, the prevailing theory regarding this phenomena, consists of it being something beyond the ability and understanding of this physical world. Although the concept of ESP, does not rely on the physical laws of the universe, thus discarded by scientist; it can very well suggest the existence of a soul within us.

Curiously enough, some studies have shown, that there is a relationship between prayer and ESP manifestations. In these studies, it was found that most people who practice intercessory prayer, were most likely to exhibit signs of ESP indicators as well as recovery.
