In my last article, I discussed some of the methods that one might employ IF we speculate about the reality of ESP. Crowded areas would probably be akin to walking through a talkative crowd, even in audible silence. One would be surrounded with the mind chatter from others, to varying degrees, and this would most likely be a function of familiarity over time. The better tuned to someone else's thought process you would be the longer you knew them and the more familiar you were with them.
You would be more attuned to family and friends in your early life and then as grew older you would gradually become more and more open to the world to various degrees and in various ways. This of course would be determined by familiarity and time, so family and lifelong friends would know you the best in that way, with more recent acquaintances progressively being able to read you less. What are the ways that someone who doesn't know you as well might try to open you up?
Most likely this would occur by making incursions to the limits of your familiarity, which would have been defined by those who were most familiar to you. So one who might try to get you open might try to surpass the limits which you had set for others that were familiar to you. If you never let your sister drive your car as it makes you nervous or you just don't let anyone drive your car, then someone trying to get you open might try to surpass that limit by getting you to let them drive your car. This limit should be set by a level of how much you are willing to trust a person. What happens when those boundaries are crossed by a large number of people?
Chances are that when you are experiencing that, you have a group of people trying to open you up. This can be good and bad, depending upon how you feel about others trying to figure out aspects of your private life. It can be good if you have barriers to your progress in life. Perhaps there are things in your life that are hindering your progress or hampering your nature. Clearing these can be akin to removing a barrier to your growth such as clearing out painful memories or harmful past experiences. On the other hand, when is it ok for other members of the public to know intimate details about your love life, your sexual habits and tendencies, especially when they involve the privacy of your spouse. When is it ok for others to know about your credit rating and or your credit card numbers or your bill payments?
It is good to be open to a point, but there are limits and those limits are related to your level of trust. So a group of people trying to open you up might try to besiege your limits. By crossing those limits, they may even feel they are more in with you than your family. The important thing to remember is that those limits are symbols used by others who may be trying to help you or hurt you, dependent upon your point of view. What happens that would make your thoughts open to someone else?
With time and familiarity which are directly proportional and based upon the time separated from those with whom you are most familiar, a link forms which we call a bond. A bond describes the ability of one person to interpret the cognitive process of another via the information that travels between the via electromagnetic phenomenon discussed in part two of this article series. It was described as being electromagnetic emanations from the brain which were emitted by the passage of electrical current during the thought process. Because the geography of the brain is similar from person to person we can measure this phenomenon with scientific equipment. Because the specific structure of our synaptic networks differ greatly from person to person, a connection between our cognitive window is required to decipher such information that we receive from those that we are familiar with.
Getting someone open in that aspect is about getting familiar with them. The more of a link that one has between their thought process and their cognitive window, the better one is able to decipher the electromagnetic information that flows freely during the thought process. Without a connection to this cognitive window, it is difficult to decipher. With a strong connection, one can actually use another person's cognition like a search engine, and perform look-ups of memories or even engage in clairvoyance or seeing through the eyes of another.
Familiarity is therefore a person's barrier of protection from this phenomenon and a means of enjoying a connection to your mate privately. Those trying to open you up may be trying to draw you into a communal approach to this phenomenon.
This topic will be continued in part four of this series.
