    I think this is going in a direction I can't follow.
    It may be a bit too far down the rabbit hole for me.

    Default using peripheral vision for time distortion

    Nice story.

    Intense adrenaline.

    You are moving.

    Time slowed down (perceptually, and subjectively).

    Iím pretty sure that what you did was black dot, white dot perceptual filters and you did it unconsciously.

    Most people donít know it, but that method of using peripheral vision is also a method of removing yourself from the sympathetic nervous system (stress) into the parasympathetic nervous system (peace) so the Triple Warmer Meridian is NOT turned on, so the adrenaline dump does level off.

    Since you were very practiced, i.e.,. to the Musashi level, there was no conscious cognition involved, getting in the way of your visual external awareness.

    Yes.

    RIGHT ON!

    That is one way of doing Time Distortion, slowing dow time subjectively by choice.

    And there are better ways so you can do it all the time.

    You are definitively on the right track.

    Thank you.

    Keep the stories coming guys.

    Actually that answer was for Celtic, and it might not have been Zen enough for you.

    Sorry.

    A little too "What the Bleep Do we Know" for ya? LOL

    Actually, Dr. LaTourrette, I'm a big fan of quantum physics. I'm also quite practical. The only thing that I think can match the speed of light is the speed of thought. Hence my opinion on the matter. SGM Parker constantly wrote about training the subconcious mind so that one could be spontaneous in one's reactions. Having to think about what you will do in response to an attack takes time. Once one has trained to the point that one's actions are spontaneous because those actions are embedded in the subconcious mind and do not require concious thought, then it may give the "appearence" in memory of slowing down time.

    Having said that, I still do not believe that any mortal can manipulate space/time. I do believe that one can train for spontaeity and make one's reactions second nature. Much like walking, which in fact initially takes concious effort from birth to accomplish, one can make martial maneuvers second nature through repetition as well eventually requiring little or no concious effort to achieve.

    Default accidental time distortion is NOT good enough!

    Well Celtic,
    That's a different thing entirely. I'm talking about perceptions inside your head (subjective dimension). According to William Tiller, and others, we do MANIPULATE space and time all the time inside of our head.

    And there is evidence that when our right temporal lobe is used at a theta level of mind, we can use the non-local universe of no time, no space and no distance, to figure out something that we need now, in this objective (get shxt done) universe.

    So both brain hemispheres, which have different functions, work together when trained appropriated.

    Iíve already posted William Tillerís credentials and his book titles.

    And Iím not talking about something so esoteric that a punch wonít fit into the process.

    Iím talking about something that we all seem to do but only on an accidental subconscious level.

    I did go over 2 of the different methods on learning how to do it consciously on my posts from yesterday.

    What I cut and pasted above that you wrote about is one of the ones I posted about yesterday.

    It is level 4 of competencyÖ

    Which basically means, through training the response is a habit, so there are no constraints to external awareness if a specific condition is met.

    Öand the specific condition is using the parasympathic nervous system instead of the sympathetic nervous system.

    So, how would one do that?

    How is that type of training done?

    Ps. I will go over another method today.
