It has been said that explanatory power is a lithmus test of new scientific paradigms. The consciential paradigm sheds light on phenomena like the near-death experience, a well-known medical connundrum that has puzzled forthcoming physicians, leading many to consider that consciousness can indeed exist independently of the brain. For some, this means it is non-corporeal, as proposed by projectiology and its consciential paradigm, but for others not willing to abandon the intraphysical limits of the Newtonian-Cartesian paradigm, it means that it is at least distributed throughout the body.
More scientists are opening up to the idea that memory is also not limited to the brain. Projectiology posits that memory is not ultimately biological, since it can survive biological death, and we can access memories of OBE's that were not previously recalled and memories of past intraphysical life times and periods between lives, for example.
You may have heard of claims that patients who undergo organ transplants appear to acquire more than a replacement organ from a donor. Discovery Health Channel is running a program called "Transplanting Memories," chronicling cases of apparent information being transferred from the donor to the recipient: traumas, personality traits, and more. This is another type of phenomenon that the consciential paradigm explicates.
In a famous case, documented in the book A Change of Heart, an American woman named Claire Sylvia received a heart and lung transplant from an eighteen year-old male who had a fatal motorcycle accident.
Soon after the operation, Sylvia declared that she felt like drinking beer, something she hadn't particularly been fond of. Later, she observed an uncontrollable urge to eat chicken nuggets and found herself drawn to visiting the popular chicken restaurant chain, KFC. She also began craving green peppers which she hadn’t particularly liked before. Sylvia also began having recurring dreams about a mystery man named Tim L., whom she felt was the organ donor. On a cue from someone, she searched for obituaries in newspapers published from Maine and was able to identify the young man whose heart she had received. His name had indeed been Tim. After visiting Tim’s family, she discovered that he used to love chicken nuggets, green peppers and beer.
If, as depicted in psychometry cases, a watch or necklace can retain the user's thosenes (patterns of THOughts SENtiments in suble ENErgy, personal morphic field, information field, noetic field), what could be said of a body's organ? Projectiology employs the neologism holothosene to describe a sum or average of such thosenes, theoretical units of manifestation. People, places, objects, even symbols can have such imprints, which most people perceive only unconsciously. In IAC's CDP course students reflect in depth on this subject and learn very useful techniques to sense, qualify, control, connect to or isolate from such holothosenes.
We also study life after death, or between lives, through psychical phenomena like out-of-body experiences (OBEs). Through these projections of the consciousness, we might find cases where the donor, now an extraphysical consciousness, remains in a state of auric coupling with the organ, and hence with the recipient. If the recipient is less aware of extraphysical reality, he or she could then be affected by the thoughts, memories, intentions, desires, emotions of the extraphysical consciousness, who is also most likely semi-conscious of the process. More knowledge and training of bioenergy and extraphysical reality can prevent this type of situation. Crucially, projectiology also investigates how to understand and assist extraphysical consciousnessses in a pathological state, replacing fear and helplessness with techniques (e.g. assistantial OBE; PENTA or Personal Energetic Task) and fraternity.
Another widely publicized case reportedly resulted in the recipient helping to solve the murder of the organ donor. Whether it is an example psychometry or whether the extraphysical consciousness utilized the heart to establish a stronger communication to bring the facts to light, it is an extraordinary case.
An eight year-old girl, who received the heart of a murdered ten year-old girl, began having recurring vivid nightmares about the murder. Her mother arranged a consultation with a psychiatrist who after several sessions concluded that she was witnessing actual physical incidents. They decided to call the police who used the detailed descriptions of the murder (the time, the weapon, the place, the clothes he wore, what the little girl he killed had said to him) given by the little girl to find and convict the man in question.
The Journal to New Approaches to Medicine and Health lists these and several other compelling cases, including some that have been independently investigated. Echoing the predominant materialistic view, Jeremy Chapman, president of the International Transplantation Society, has been quoted saying that "there is no scientific basis of such a claim. There's so much fiction around transplants." But other researchers say the phenomenon, which is known as 'cellular memory', is not limited to those who have received new hearts. Projectiology would point to non-biological hypotheses, namely those of holothosenes and psi communication with extraphysical consciousness.
