Chaos, Negative Emotions, and Creativity

Those nasty negative emotions. If only we could just do away with them, right? But they have value, and they show up more in creative (right-brained) thinkers. Here’s why they are both valuable and in larger quantity in creative types, according to Jordan Peterson:

ESP in Dreams, Dream Interpretation, and Personal Inclemencies

Lately I’ve been interested in programming my dreams to answer questions.  Because of my interest in remote viewing (think ESP for science types), my questions tend towards precognitions and other types of things that I would not have a direct awareness of. Because remote viewing involves bubbling up information accessed by the subconscious, it occurred to me that the close connection dreams have with the subconscious makes them a possible vector for intentional, directed psychic awareness.

Programming Your Dreams, Some Specifics

“Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious.”

—Thomas Edison
Following in Edison’s footsteps, I experiment with programming dreams to answer questions; I’ve created my own methods, based on my understanding of Remote Viewing theory. I’ve had some success, so a friend of mine asked me to advise on good questions to pose to dreams when looking for career guidance, something along the lines of, “what job am I going to have next?”

Stock Predictions Experiment is Finished

… at least for now.
[edit 3/20/14: I’ve still been doing stock predictions, and my success rate has improved significantly, currently 11 out of 16 correct, accuracy rate of 69%.  More on this in a future post. ]
The enthusiasm of my initial success (being able to predict the shape of a stock chart) was dampened by the seventh prediction. With a success rate of just four out of seven, there is not yet any statistical significance. This is not to say that there is no real effect, but rather I don’t have enough of an understanding of it to be able to use it reliably for predicting stocks. Making public predictions feels incredibly vulnerable. When I’m wrong it’s hard not to feel foolish.
Anecdotally, I wanted to mention a couple of noteworthy oddities: one predicted chart seemed to mirror the actual chart. In a related experiment I receive the opposite answer of the question I posed. To be clear, if I predict UP and the stock is DOWN, I wouldn’t label that as an opposite, just a failure. An example of an opposite would be if I ask “what turns you on?” and I perceive a list of what turns you off.
Mirror images and opposites may indicate that the nonlocal mind has difficulty in orientation and polarity, which obviously would be troublesome for someone who’s goal is to tell in which direction a chart is headed.
I also suspect that nonlocal mind becomes bored with repetition, and without repeated reminders from analytical mind, it loses attention. In dreams, analytical mind is ‘asleep’, so nonlocal mind does whatever it wants. This makes this technique a poor choice for something that requires daily repetition.
Finally, after having done some more private trials, I still do not see a rebounding towards success like I experienced early on. I found that it was difficult to distinguish between dreams that may have actually been an answer to my question versus a run-of-the-mill dream. I was inclined to attribute any dream that showed movement up or down as a stock prediction, though in retrospect that attribution seems unwarranted.
For someone interested in pursuing stock predictions, I do not recommend my dream technique, but would instead recommend Associative Remote Viewing, as taught by Russell Targ.

So my hit rate in now 4 out of 7, bummer. My initial run of success seems to have vanished as the experiment continues. While skeptics would rush to conclude there is no effect, convenient conclusions are also lazy ones. I suspect that the subconscious mind has grown bored with the task of predicting stocks. I need to find a way to keep it interested.

Remote Viewing: Faulty Analysis Can be Disastrous

I learned that the father of Remote Viewing, Ingo Swann, used his psychic abilities to ‘discover’ the remote viewing protocol. Mind blowing. Kind of like looking through a telescope to learn how to invent a telescope.
So I thought: if he can do that, why not me? So I’ve been posing questions to my dreams, and getting answers!
My dream last night seems to be instructive about remote viewing in general, or if not instructive, at least highlighted a point of problem.
In the dream I was in a car arriving at a historic site; a covered bridge. In front of me were two signs: one pointing left, the other pointing right. One sign was for the bridge the other was for the parking lot. But in the dream the two signs were indistinguishable from each other (both destinations were, after all, places for cars). Misreading a sign can end up sending you in the opposite direction of where you wanted to go, with the results ranging from humorous to disastrous.

Prediction: Flat to down (no chart).
Confidence: Medium
On Friday I noticed Yahoo Finance provided 2 different stock charts for the same URL for the same day, possibly by browser. The Y axis of the chart served to my Google Chrome showed a higher range of numbers, which compressed the vertical change, yielding a chart that appeared flat:
130524-aapl1a
The chart served to my Safari browser had a Y axis with a smaller range, yielding a more exaggerated chart:
130524-aapl1
This highlights a problem with trying to predict how a chart will appear visually, since I may see two wildly different charts to represent the same data. Today I will only view the chart served to Safari. I predict will a chart that will be very similar, containing ups and downs, but ultimately ending near the same place it started, not up, perhaps down slightly.
The past 2 weeks I have had walking pneumonia.  Between that and the cold medicine I’ve been taking, I wonder if these matters negatively impact my results. If I get a negative result today, I may postpone further predictions until I’m feeling better.
[edit 5:45 pm]
AAPL closed down .83%
130528-aapl
When filtering out low confidence predictions, I am 4 out of 5.

Miss. AAPL ended up .68%
So I go to view the chart in 2 browsers, and lo and behold I see 2 different charts for the same day:
130524-aapl1a
130524-aapl1
Both charts are valid, just with different y axes. It certainly highlights a problem with trying to view the shape of a chart… was today flat or bumpy?

My predicted chart seems to mirror flipped left to right, which obviously would not be a good thing when predict stocks. It did get right that the stock would go up and then down, ending down.

Stock Prediction, AAPL, one year forecast: May 19, 2013 to May 19, 2014

Prediction: (12 month outlook) Up.
Confidence: High.

I went to bed at midnight and had the answer before 2 AM. When I awoke at two, I decided to pose the next question (how much up will it go in 12 months?), but I do not recall any dream that answered that.
Since this is a 12 month forecast, this is the farthest out I’ve ever tried to view. I will be curious to see the result.
