Visions of the Future - Introduction to the Winter 2010 – 2011 Issue

Mythology and social allegory tell us that to be seduced by the siren of the future will certainly be our downfall. Even our theoretical and physical scientists suggest that if we attempt to access the future, we will destroy the past, and possibly annihilate our very existence. But what if our intrinsic desire to know the future is more about awakening a long-dormant innate human capacity, than it is the pursuit of knowledge that is sinful, wrong, and potentially disastrous? What if all the fear attributed with knowing the future is nothing more than growing pains of a species that is expanding awareness outside limited belief systems?

For our Winter 2011 issue, SuperConsciousness argues that knowing the future is a natural and innate human ability albeit underdeveloped and certainly underappreciated. For those people who pursue the arts of prescience and precognitive ability, what opens up for them is not heartache and pain, but spiritual enlightenment: Human Beings are built to know the VISIONS OFfuture, to access information outside our physical senses, outside time, distance, and space.

First we look at the actual definitions of psychic, ESP, and clairvoyance. Why is it that certain words evoke fear? Perhaps to intentionally scrutinize our reactions to these loaded words is to pull back the veil of the power these words hold over us.

DR Larry Dossey, author of The Science of Premonitions, How Knowing the Future Can Help Us Avoid Danger, Maximize Opportunities, and Create A Better Life, presents evidence that not only is prescience innate, but that it is ubiquitous. We are always accessing information about the future, we are simply not aware of it.

Laura Day, author of How To Rule the World From Your Couch, has spent three decades helping others to develop their own psychic ability. She is devoted to helping demystify intuitive ability by demonstrating its practical, verifiable use in business, science, medicine, and personal, spiritual growth.

SuperConsciousness introduces the skill of Remote Viewing by the people who know it best: Those who developed its protocols, and those who utilized the techniques in military service and civilian use. For further information, we recommend three of the best books written by the experts who know the subject best.

Beyond Intuition impressions and subjective Remote Viewing is the innate ability to visually perceive the future, eyes open, as an overlay on the present. Ex-Air Force pilot and current Ramtha School of Enlightenment instructor Mike Wright shares his “personal experiment” of developing that capacity.

In 4 Ways to See the Future, SuperConsciousness rearranges all the different ways of accessing future information into another set of categories sure to delight and entertain you.

What about visionaries? Can they be trusted? Should they be trusted? First, we take a look at the legendary Nostradamus. Was he the real deal, or was he a fake? Enjoy this interview with scholar Peter Lemesurier who provides evidence showing that he wasn’t all he has been thought to be.

And what about James Cameron, creator of the most successful film of all time, Avatar? Rebecca Keegan, author of Cameron’s biography, The Futurist, reveals qualities about the filmmaker that demonstrate great visionary ability, and some qualities that do not. Suzanne Nichols actually spent a day with Cameron recently – on a ZeroG flight – and tells us about her experience.

Music visionary Alex Theory provides us with his insights as does scientist and engineer Thomas Valone about the future of electromagnetic healing techniques.

For this issue’s MINDSCOPE, publisher Jair Robles speaks with business visionary Kazimierz Gozdz about Creating the Future of Business. Gozdz talks about the profound techniques that are emerging and currently being integrated into organizational practices that help not only the bottom line, but how integrative thinking spreads out into community and the world as a byproduct of “Stage Four” business development.

Our last featured visionary is Jim Channon, retired Lieutenant Colonel and creator of the military’s “Earth First Battalion” made famous in the Hollywood film, The Men Who Stare At Goats, and portrayed by Jeff Bridges. Channon knows that the earth’s current environmental problems are solvable and only require us to utilize our military as the work force to clean up the oceans, redistribute water to the deserts, and build sustainable communities. More than a mere visionary, he walks his talk: He grows his own food and trains business and governmental leaders around the world about how to implement their plans and visions of a sustainable future. Channon shares, in his own words, his passion for leading the way to a new future, a new paradise for humanity.

There’s been a lot of excitement recently, due to the early release of a research paper from Cornell showing that the evidence of human prescience to be statistically significant. Psychology Today, Wired Magazine, and a host of other generally conservative publications (at least when it comes to innate human “psychic” ability) have seen fit to publish commentary about this published data and have done so in a fairly balanced manner. This is good news.

For too long, human beings have been taught to be afraid of the future. Instead, we should welcome it as well as exercise our right to create it. For this issue, Visions of the Future, the editors and staff of SuperConsciousness Magazine have provided, not only the evidence that prescience is innate within us, but also the knowledge that our ability to access and direct the future is innate within everyone.

From all of us at SuperConsciousness, we wish you a joyful and abundant 2011. May the future reveal to you your extraordinary gifts and abilities, and may you share them with the world!
