Kathy Shanks – The Silent Impulse – A Study in Consciousness and Time

This discussion takes into consideration my experience, research and comparisons of psychic events and reported cases in literature. Having analysed the basic hallmarks of psychic interruptions, showing salient features and the influence such patterns have on developing reality, it is important to examine the underlying influences.

These background psychological tensions and real world states are balanced through poised creativity, the raison d’etre of all our interactions employed to cope with the world around us. We need these challenges to validate how adroit we are in the field of reality. My findings show how these encounters rely on instinct, inspiration and deep creativity along with our psychic prompting through dreams, intuitions and moments of inspiration. This paper examines the influence of background beliefs and attitudes that affect our interpretation of reality and the role psychic prompts play to inform our awareness through incidents such as coincidence, serendipity and chance.

The aim of this discussion is to tie current scientific and philosophical thinking (spearheaded by Hameroff1, Husserl2 Lazlo3 Stapp4 and others) to existing practical life states. This is explored through scrutiny of intention, attention, expectation, emotional excitation and focus in consciousness. I will concentrate on a small number of incidents, highlighting the developmental path of these situations, along with the all important background history. These are the prime motivators in the evolution of the physical, conscious and psychic interactions that we use to locate ourselves in reality and time.
