Incidentally again, hypnosis also helps you to use psychological time to a true advantage. The boundaries of clock time melt when psychological time is utilized. You can look through psychological time at clock time, and even use clock time to your advantage; but without the initial recognition of psychological time, then clock time is somewhat of a prison.
Psychological time adds duration. You will find something else here. From the framework of psychological time you will see that clock time is as dreamlike and fleeting as you once thought inner time was. And you will discover that inner time is as much a reality as you once thought outer time was. You will discover your whole selves in other worlds, peeping inward and outward at the same time, and finding that all time is one time, and that all divisions are illusion.
Psychological time fits into physical time with little trouble. Originally this enabled man in many ways to live in the inner and the outer world with relative ease. Psychological time can be transposed onto physical time, but psychological time cannot flow unhampered or with any freedom through days chopped up into so many clock divisions. The clock time idea was invented by the conscious ego of man for many various reasons, with fear in the foreground.
[...] Habitual errors become part of the psychological perspective. Communication between individuals in the psychological perspective is almost exclusively telepathic, and is picked up early by the young from their parents. In the beginning, children actually begin their physical construction along lines telepathically received from their parents, at the same time that they learn their own manipulation in the psychological perspective.
(Jane had nothing to report from her experiments with psychological time. [...]
[...] There is no law limiting the number of psychological structures available to you, but because of your present development, and because of this alone, you are hampered. Experience or lack of it on various fields has not yet been possible, so practically speaking you have a limited number of basic psychological structures to deal with; and your perception, clear psychological understanding, intuitive comprehension of, and manipulation and psychological constructions of these basic structures, will determine the validity of your material constructions that will then form your environment.
Your own physical environment appears as it does to you because of your own psychological structure. If you gained your sense of personal continuity through associative processes primarily, rather than as a result of the familiarity of self moving through time, then you would experience physical reality in an entirely different fashion. [...] If your perceptive mechanisms were primarily set up as a result of intuitive association rather than time sequence, then you would perceive all of these chairs at one time; or seeing one, you would be aware of the others. So environment is not a separate thing in itself, but the result of perceptive patterns, and these are determined by psychological structure.
[...] By this I mean that I am not restricted to a time sequence. [...] We experience time, or what you would call its equivalent nature, in terms of intensities of experience — a psychological time with its own peaks and valleys.
This is somewhat similar to your own emotional feelings when time seems speeded up or slowed down, but it is vastly different in important ways. Our psychological time could be compared in terms of environment to the walls of a room, but in our case the walls would be constantly changing in color, size, height, depth and width.
(Jane has also been trying contemplation, and has observed the beginnings of a few achievements, after a long period without success in psychological time.
The psychological frameworks behind physical reality are also composed of energy, and are the building blocks that I have mentioned earlier. Their expansion is not limited by any of your known, or misinterpreted, laws of space or time or thermodynamics, since they exist in a dimension where such laws simply do not apply.
[...] I have mentioned earlier that in a dream experience, as far as the senses are concerned you may visit a particular location, experience a certain time duration; and yet the location does not exist and cannot be found in your space, and though you experience, say, five hours time in your dream, this perhaps takes up merely a flash of clock time, and the physical body does not age during the psychological dream experience in any proportion to the actual psychological reality involved. You are free of space, and to a large degree of time, in the sleeping state, because you are not using your energies to transform ideas into durable physical camouflage patterns.
If you trusted only your so-called scientific method, then you would not admit that you have ever even had a psychological experience, since it takes up no space and exists independently of time. Nevertheless, no one will argue that a psychological experience has no validity. A psychological experience is so valid that it can change the course, not only of one life, but of many.
[...] You must understand psychological reality, psychological time, psychological experience, and the dream existence before you can learn to utilize many abilities, since in all the mentioned aspects, you use your abilities, that is your inner senses, on a subconscious level.
[...] It is very difficult on your level to do without any camouflage, and yet it can be done; and here again the use of psychological time is extremely important, since when psychological time is utilized to its fullest extent, then camouflage becomes lessened to an almost astounding degree.
[...] Most realities have their growth and existence in something closely akin to what we have called psychological time, and this is completely independent of space as you conceive it to be. Psychological time is a sort of climate or environment conducive to the existence of all consciousness.
[...] It is also free to a very large degree of your physical time, but it does exist in the climate or environment of psychological time.
Your idea of keeping detailed records of psychological time experiments is an excellent one. There is at least a possibility that you and Ruburt, using your own individual inner senses, may at times perceive different aspects of a given situation, and that the individual perceptions will enable you to achieve a greater knowledge of a specific, or any specific, happening than either of you separately could achieve. This of course will take time and training.
[...] While trying psychological time, Jane again experienced the feeling she has likened to ecstasy, and described so thoroughly on page 66. [...] We thought that a small step at a time was sufficient.)
(While trying psychological time I had the following experiences. [...]
(On November 4, 1964, Jane unwittingly achieved a trance state, during psychological time, that lasted for several hours. [...] On February 8, 1965, through a combination of reading certain material and another psy-time experiment, she again put herself into a dissociated state. [...]
(This reminded me that Jane recently remarked that when she tries psychological time now, it is the usual thing for her to achieve what she calls an “excellent” state.)
Psychological experiments as whole present him with an excellent means of using his energies. However at times we must, as now, cut him down. [...]
[...] Before we close I want you to understand that your experiments in psychological time add to your mobility and subconscious manipulation within the electrical universe. [...] Your psychological experiments give you familiar ground there to walk upon, to travel on; grounds of reference and even of safety.
All motion is mental or psychological motion, and all mental and psychological motion has electric reality. [...] Each new psychological experience opens up a new pulsation intensity, and therefore gives greater actuality within the electrical field.
(The following notes are from Jane’s psy-time notebook:
[...] 8/10, Jane and I rested from trying psychological time and have nothing to report.
You have both experienced such states, both in your work and with your psychological time episodes. [...]
