Who’s On First? A Potato Plug?
A man confined to a wheelchair consulted Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty).
He took his first steps in eight years.
An “accident” kept him from returning for a second treatment.
According to Adano, the man wanted to kill his grandmother, and arranged the original “accident” and the latest one to keep from doing it.
“We’re going to work on him from a distance,” Adano announced to a classroom full of Texas Institute of Reflex Sciences students.
“I thought we shouldn’t do long-distance work on a person without their permission,” I asked Adano.
“He gave his permission when he came for help,” he replied.

“The physiologist Benjamin Libet famously used EEG to show that activity in the brain’s motor cortex can be detected some 300 milliseconds before a person feels that he has decided to move. Another lab extended this work using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI): Subjects were asked to press one of two buttons while watching a ‘clock’ composed of a random sequence of letters appearing on a screen. They reported which letter was visible at the moment they decided to press one button or the other. The experimenters found two brain regions that contained information about which button subjects would press a full 7 to 10 seconds before the decision was consciously made. More recently, direct recordings from the cortex showed that the activity of merely 256 neurons was sufficient to predict with 80 percent accuracy a person’s decision to move 700 milliseconds before he became aware of it.”
But what if the Future happens before the Past and the Present?
What if the Future actually creates the Past and the Present?
The Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh of Exodus 3:14 — usually translated as “I Am That I Am” — is more correctly translated as “I Will Be What I Will Be.”
Professor Frank A. Brown of Northwestern University sliced up potatoes and put them deep underground in darkness.
They were kept in a lead box to block out any known form of radiation.
The lead box was pressurized, so barometric pressure couldn’t affect them.
Yet some unknown energy allowed these potato plugs to exchange information with the environment.
Besides being able to tell what time of the day or night it was, they were able to predict the weather one or two days in advance.
This implies that these potato plugs actually DO something about the weather reports they receive.
Why prognosticate if you’re not going to do anything about it?
