You hit me with a lot. Holy CRAP!
Give me time ... .. .
I'm still working on all of your questions but there's something I want to mention, to get you thinking about, while I'm still trying to piece together answers to everything you asked, because you asked some questions I haven't ever asked so I'm having to figure them out and it will take a 'while' but not too long (I hope).
One of the things I've bumped into in the REAL about three-or-so years ago is what's going on when peeps take Hallucinogenics (aka: Acid). I was at a Natural Hot Springs with a lot of other peeps and during the day I ran around collecting firewood to have a campfire that night and 3 boys joined us at our campfire (our = me and a female friend), since there was plenty of room for more than just us and I was hoping to attract more peeps to the fire, to make the night even better, and during the evening one of the boys copped 5 tabs of Acid and he took 2 and gave 1-tab to each of his 2 friends and he stuck the leftover tab in his wallet for a later date, then one of the 1-tab boys ended-up having a Mushroom tossed in his mouth later on, Max, and he was the one that caught my attention a few hours later, when he managed to 'tap' me personally and I know he tapped me because of exactly what he said (it's too personal for me to repeat publicly) but when he said what he said, it came directly OUT of my MIND, it couldn't have come from anyone else, given the subject matter of it, but I never said anything along those lines the entire night. I was doing my best to keep everything lively, to include authoring on-the-fly the Blind Porcupine that Married the Pineapple story, from either a Porcupine or Pineapple showing-up from someone in the group and I just 'went' with it and the Blind Porcupine that Married the Pineapple story manifested and the children they had together were truly a 'handful', especially since they lived next door to the Blind Snake and his mate, a Garden Hose, and the children of both were beyond hilarious, especially since they went to the same pubic skewl, which I can only imagine that that skewl had a serious problem retaining teachers and it's too bad the story didn't go down in the UK, or Cambridge would have gotten raided by the little scoundrels.
Anyways, getting back to the Acid Trip, what happened with Max is the combination of the 2 different acids somehow 'unlocked' or 'enhanced' his sub-conscious (Neutral Magnetics) just enough so it could tap his surroundings and he tapped me (see movie: Altered States). You can look at Salvador Dali (my favorite artist/painter of all time), who was seriously into Acid and his paintings are reflective of his Acid Trips, where he tapped this world's Delusional Reality and then he painted what he saw on his Acid Trips. That was something I caught about Sal around 15 years ago or so when I bumped into his paintings but I didn't know the whys or hows or the likes at that time but I did know what his paintings were all about, since Sal's paintings are obviously all about the delusions this world believes to be the truth, to include this world's WARPED TIME, so I knew the Acid Trips were behind it somehow, I just didn't know the whys at that time. So when I bumped into Max, along with what I had already caught about Salvador Dali and with what I've read from Indigenous Tribal members talking about Peyote Trips and their 'Spirit Guides', I caught what was going on with Max but because I was trying to keep the 3 boy's Acid Trip as good as it could get, thru keeping them laughing as much as possible and keeping the fire stoked so they'd have the flames from the fire to give them even better reactions from the Acid, I didn't ask Max anything about what he said or what he 'saw' in his head, I left it alone, but he definitely tapped me and I'm looking forward to trying Acid myself, since I'm still an Acid Virgin.
So if you are truly interested in Telepathy, TRY Acid but be careful who's nearby you when you do, since you can end-up tapping into 'something' you'd rather stay away from (see movie: Altered States, to understand what I'm talking about), so I wouldn't recommend doing it anywhere near Cambridge.
Plus, watch the movie Altered States, since it's very CLOSE to the TRUTH!
