    Becoming Supernatural
    summarized in 5 key ideas

    Matter and Energy

    Remember learning about Einstein in physics class? E = mc². For those of us who need a refresher, that equation describes how mass becomes energy and vice versa. Essentially, any tangible mass that travels faster than the speed of light becomes pure energy – it can’t hold its material form. The equation also shows how everything that contains mass is a certain amount of energy, just in stationary form. 

    Most of your life involves being matter, being a tangible being. But you also give off energy, and because of that, you can affect both your body and the world around you by merely focusing your consciousness.

    The French researcher René Peoc’h first demonstrated this very phenomenon in 1995. He built a robot with random-choice-generator software installed. The robot traveled forward, choosing to turn left or right at random times. Peoc’h built it to turn right 50 percent of the time and to turn left the other half of the time.

    Obviously, we can’t show you any graphics in this Blink. Instead, imagine a rectangle on the ground in front of you. When Peoc’h placed his robot in the rectangular space, its path went all over the rectangle. So in that rectangle you’re imagining, you’d see random, jagged lines traced throughout the entire space.

    Peoc’h then hatched a group of chicks and imprinted those chicks on the robot. If the chicks had been given free rein, they’d have followed the robot along its randomly chosen paths. But instead, the chicks were placed in an enclosure just to the right of the robot’s rectangular space. The chicks could see the robot but couldn’t move toward it or follow it, despite their instincts to do so.

    This is where things get really interesting.

    So imagine again a rectangle on the ground with the imprinted chicks in a smaller rectangle to the right of the bigger one. When the robot was again placed in the larger rectangular space, its pathways were all concentrated on the right half of the rectangle – the side closest to the chicks! There were no lines on the left side of the rectangle anymore, only lines on the right side.

    This was the same robot and the same program that previously had produced the random pathways that covered the entire rectangular space. The only difference in the experiment was the inclusion of the imprinted chicks. Their intention to be close to the robot they’d imprinted upon was the only difference. The conclusion? The intention and focus the chicks placed on the robot were actually capable of altering its path.

    Incredible, right?

    What could you do with the right focus and intention? It’s truly the definition of becoming supernatural – affecting the world around and within you using only your focus.

    Okay, okay, it’s slightly more complicated than just thinking, of course. We’ll get into more detail on how to actually affect the world around you later. For now, let’s look at how such a thing is even possible. It’s all thanks to energy and the quantum realm.
