Many people have had trouble accepting that there is more to life than what we can visually see. People still deny the metaphysical to this day, but thankfully they are lessening every day. Even though some people might have a hard time believing in it, that does not stop science from proving that it exists.
There has been a multitude of different studies performed that prove that humans are abundantly energetic beings and we interact with many levels of energies throughout our daily lives. I have always been fascinated by the metaphysical abilities of humans, like astral projection and lucid dreaming. Many people are hypothesizing that we are going through another transcendentalism era due to the growing awareness of a higher consciousness and cosmic creations. Except for this time, we have extravagant technology to test our theories and find out what is true. One study recently found that humans have a force field around their bodies that you can even feel.
In the study, scientists applied brushstrokes in mid-air at some distance above a rubber hand without touching it. The researchers found that the brushstrokes were actually synchronized to the participant’s real hand – which was hidden. It created an illusory sensation of a magnetic force between the brush and the rubber hand. It directly affected their perception of the rubber hand that you could witness in their real hand.
The scientists used the fake hand to explore how the mind combines information from the senses to create a feeling of body ownership. “The illusion comes on when the real and fake hands are stroked at the same time and speed for a minute or two. In combining the visual information with the touch sensations, the brain mistakenly concludes that the rubber hand must be part of the person’s body. When questioned about the feeling, the volunteers said it seemed that their own hand had vanished and the fake hand had become their own.”, the scientists concluded.
