--Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Evolution did not come to a screeching halt with the first bipeds who could accurately be labeled homo sapiens. We have been developing the powers of our imagination in new and exciting ways ever since. However, the imaginatively gifted among us frequently need the services of a hypnotist to function as an enabler, coach, or personal trainer to show us how to use these emerging abilities with confidence, because they are so different from the current patterns of thought which we are used to in everyday life
With 99% of the same genetic makeup as our closest simian cousins, the chimpanzees, there is little doubt that our evolutionary development has been lopsided. We have highly developed frontal lobes which enable us to formulate lofty ideals and distant goals, but all too often our emotional centers prevent us from achieving them. More than once in the last century, we have come close to annihilating each other; and many societal institutions -- are devoted in whole or in part to regulating our behavior so that we do not destroy one another individually.
With hyperempiria, or suggestion-enhanced experience, it becomes possible to pre-experience the rewards of distant goals now, in the present, when they are most important for motivation, making it much easier to live up to the goals and ideals which evolution has enabled us to construct but have heretofore been difficult to achieve.
Hyperempiria, or suggestion-enhanced experience, is nothing less than the next step upward in human evolution. And the challenge facing all of us is to make it possible for the exponentially gifted elite who dwell among us, as well as most others who possess these gifts to a lesser extent, to make the fullest use of their hyperempiric abilities.
