The nature of the human biological field (Biofield) and its relationship to the Earth’s field is a rapidly developing area of neuroscience research. Several recent studies of Michael Persinger and others at Laurentian University indicate that our thoughts may not be all that private after all. That we share our neurological patterns with others close to us, with the electric and magnetic field of the Earth, possibly even with the Milky Way Galaxy.
Taking up some themes in John Broomfield's article, Chris Thomson proposes that consciousness is still evolving and needs to do so. He suggests that this will include the wider development of what he calls teleconsciousness and paraconsciousness, faculties that shamans had acquired already and which have by and large been neglected with the development of technology as a substitute to refining our own capacities.
