“It is unscientific to separate the psychological and the physiological in living organisms. After falsely separating them it is absurd to pronounce a ‘principle’ connecting them; that device, wherever used, indicates merely a semantic patching of an inadequate model, for they were never disconnected in nature to begin with and need no ‘principle’ to [re]unite them.”

— Charles Musés Consciousness and Reality 1972

 

Even now I am not certain whether the strangeness began slowly and then escalated, or whether I was just slow myself in realizing that my perceptions had become enhanced and augmented after the experience of The Endless Waves of Time.

Among the early post-Waves events is what I refer to as “Lost Chords” in my files that reconstruct those months of 1973. In actuality it was more of a non-event: just a little something that worried at my attention like an annoyingly forthcoming fly, or a single strand of hair at the corner of my vision.

It was a matter of seriality again. By its nature, seriality tends to go unnoticed in everyday life, where repetition is synonymous with normalcy. Toast and coffee for breakfast five days a week. The car always starts with the first turn. You take the same route to work. Our brains store serial actions into the autonomic memory system. The formulas for automatic response — called habituation in psychology — quickly settle into routines, allowing the foreconscious brain to focus on more immediate needs. These common functions of memory go by unnoticed until something disrupts a known sequence.

 

In recent years I’ve put considerable effort into reconstructing the period between early June of 1973 (the initial Time Cycle experience when a 1970 precognition actualized) and the closing event later that year, but with only limited success. Largely, it is the sequence of the events that has become obscured by clock time. As I’ve previously noted, sequence is a trigger of memory. At any rate, serial time is only theoretical, and in my case, apparently optional.
