| When human beings are possessed of what science has called hallucinations
they are considered insane. Other "diagnoses" that come to mind
are mentally unstable, crazy, incompetant, loony, freaky, etc.
These derogatory terms suggest the closed minded attitudes of
a society that values the maintenance of the status quo far above
true progress. The world we live in seems utterly incapable of
acknowledging the clues to perceptual evolution provided by those
we call crazy. By studying the process of hallucination we are
offered a doorway into a form of communication that supersedes
language. Until now, hallucinations were thought to be the result
of chemical imbalances or overactive imaginations. Again we see
the denigration of those who are different, at the expense of
truly understanding how these advanced beings can teach us to
better our lives. In this paper I intend to explain what we have
discovered at Norwood Funk Laboratories, and how our discoveries
offer groundbreaking insights into the nature of perception and
communication. Before I specifically address our recent findings,
however, I would like to address the prejudices that may make
it difficult for some to fully understand our research.
At this point Norwood Funk Labs is well known for it's research
in the realm of perceptual phenomenology. We have established
that objects are little more than the light they emit. We have
established that when viewing a photograph or film the only thing
that stops an individual from existing in that space is their
own consciousness. As soon as one is able to believe that they
can enter the framed image, the part of the brain commonly referred
to as the imagination, takes over. Once the imagination takes
over, all of the gaps are filled in. A postcard of the beach on
a Greek island will take you to that island, you only need to
believe it will. The scientific community commonly dismisses any
system of thought that references the concepts of faith and belief.
Such concepts are not considered scientific. Belief does not effect
sight. Belief does not effect smell. Belief does not effect the
world around you. Many individuals, particularly in the psychiatric
field (of all places), have expressed these foolish arguments
to me. These fatuous arguments place too little value on the abilities
of the human mind and the world that all men can and do create
for themselves every day.
It is our belief ( and for the time being it can only be a belief)
that every man on this planet experiences the world completely
differently. Standardized language makes it impossible for us
to prove this hypothesis, but our hypothesis stands. Let me now
explain how this could be.
We can safely say that, barring certain perceptual disorders in
the brain, all men can identify a square as a square, and that
a green square will be identified as a green square. Or can we?
Suppose when a person uses the movements of the hand when drawing
that we recognize as forming a square, what they see in their
mind looks like what you recognize as a circle. There is no way
for us to know what their mind sees. Suppose that when a person
sees and identifies what you see as green the color in their mind
is what you identify as blue. Everytime that person sees your
circle in their mind they will identify it as a square, and will
move their arm in the shape of a square when drawing. When this
person sees in their mind what you would call blue they will always
identify it as green. Here we see the limitations of our current
system of communication. In my opinion this makes for an extremely
problematic mode of discourse. What disturbs me most is the fact
that the few individuals who are championing improved modes of
discourse are being medicated and locked away in institutions.
Those who "suffer" from what we call hallucinations only suffer
because of the disparity that exists between what their mind is
trying to do, and what those around them say is possible. Here
at Norwood Funk labs, we have developed a means of testing the
subtle light patterns emanating from those who suffer from hallucinations.
Through these experiments we have come to the conclusion that
those who hallucinate are not actually viewing patterns of light
that come from outside their minds, but are in fact transmitting
light information from their eyes. This light is then reflected
back to the retina. Most individuals through there acceptance
of the concepts of modern science have developed a wall around
themselves. It is our hypothesis that these walls are more than
metaphor. These walls are actual light patterns built up around
the human body which reflect back the light projected toward them
from those who are supposedly hallucinating.
In the illustration provided you can see the state of our research
currently. We have observed the attempt of one caucasian male
to transmit thoughts using his eyes. Like most receivers, with
a little bit of work, eyes can be made into transmitters. As transmitters,
the eyes are able to directly convey thought from one human to
another. We expect to find that the rays of light emanating from the subjects
eyes consist of a string of Yellow Carrier Balls (YCBs) that have
passed out of the eye through the Green Radiant (GR) behind the
retina. This theory becomes somewhat problematic because of the sheer
volume of YCBs that would have to be emanating from the subjects
eyes. It seems that we are finding clues to additional light processes
inside the head. Should this theory prove true though, we believe
this represents a means for humans to literally exchange ideas.
Using this newfound ability, we can rid our selves of our current
language system and all of it's attendant misunderstandings.
The magnitude of this discovery is only beginning to be felt.
What we are seeing in these developing studies is the birth of
an understanding of light as biological material. Previously we have seen that light inside of the human head is
processed by light organs which then form human thoughts. Now we see that the body uses that light in ways that extend
far beyond the mystical processes of the mind. Light is the material
that makes up an organ of the human body that can interact with
the organs of other bodies.
For lack of a better description I would explain this phenomenon
as light forming the brain's external anatomical proxy. Some humans
use this proxy as a shield whereas others use it as a mode of
communication. The saddest element of this structure is the fact
that the communicators are in the minority. Furthermore, the defensive
sheild-makers are not only in the majority, but they are so oblivious
to the attempts made by those around them to communicate, that
they isolate and incarcerate them. It seems these individuals
are afraid to face the level of communication possible by accepting
this new mode of communication.
We are well aware of the problems which accompany any switch in
modes of communication. All one has to do is look at the way that
American society has been eased into the proliferation of computers,
television, and cd-players to see that these things do not happen
over night. What will happen in our world when we realize that
Joe's square is Mary's circle, and Francesca's blue is Charles'
orange? All of our paradigms will shift. This is not something
we human s can adjust to quickly. Such changes involve alterations
in anatomy as well as thought. Though thought is the foundation
upon which the anatomical shift is built.
Consider this paper a warning shot across the bow of spaceship
earth . It is time we started adjusting ourselves to the changes
facing us. Now that we understand d our hidden anatomical traits,
w e must decide. Will we continue to live defensively? Will we
be happy to continue our days communicating only bits and pieces
of our lives? O r will we make the next bold step into the future?
Can we adjust our minds to the changes we are about to face? I
can tell you that all of us at Norwood Funk Laboratories have
made our decision. With one voice we all demand that the human
race continue it's evolution. Now it is time for you to make your
