Time does not exist. Not in way we normally think at least. It certainly does not seem to work normally in psychic pursuits at any rate! This creates both problems and opportunities for us. If we can learn to understand nature of time in regards to our psychic efforts we will have much greater success with them.
Due to brief nature of this article, subject will be confined to issue of psychokinesis and time. While many of same basic rules will apply to our information gathering skills, such as telepathy, precognition and remote viewing, because of our personal perspective, it is easier in some ways to understand what is going on with time when we try to effect change on world around us.
Our problems with time, in regards to PK stem from two basic points;
1. Time does not exist, at least not in way we are used to dealing with it, on a psychic level. This may indicate that psychic effects are taking place at a quantum level.
2. The portion of our minds that controls psychic functioning does not have a concept of time. That exists in a different area of brain. So our psychic efforts must be linked to events rather than time coordinates.
Between these two points and our common perception of time, we run into a few problems. By noting problems we can come up with some solutions that can increase our psychokinetic success rate.
PK spreads out over time. When you try to effect anything on a psychic level, actual effect can be (if a researcher is careful and looks at data) charted as starting before you begin attempt, rise to a peak of strength a short while after attempt takes place and then tapering off over time. Because time does not work in same way on a psychic level, you can effect things before during and after actual cause (your PK attempt) happens. Because your mind does not understand time in portions of brain that controls psychic functioning, its targeting of a specific event tends towards a more shotgun pattern.
It can take some thought to really understand how to deal with this problem. Time is so integral to how most of us think, that it seems almost silly that we would have to account for drift and PK effects going to wrong time.
Another big problem is mis-targeting. It is very possible to be 100% successful in your psychic attempt, with exception of fact that you influenced an event that happened long ago, or will happen in far future! It is possible in fact that every PK attempt has real world manifestations, but we are not local to specific happening, so we never see results.
