Hey, I didn’t claim the stories to be 100% accurate but to negate the possibility that such abilities exist would be ignorant and arrogant. And what science are you talking about? We don’t even know how the pyramids were made for God’s sake. We haven’t even explored our oceans and you condescendingly talk about a drone on mars. Let me remind you that science is only one way of making sense of the world but it is not the only one. Have you seen North Korea? No, right? But you do know how it exists because of data recorded in forms of articles, videos, images etc. Stories are also a medium of data collection. The technique you are studying on this website came from the Vedic tradition of India. Vedas were passed on from one Guru to his students through stories (visuals) and each word needed to be pronounced in a very specific way. This was were the memory techniques were developed. Even NASA has a program were they study with psychics.
Stephen Wiltshire drew an entire City using his memory after a 20 min helicopter ride. We labelled him as autistic when the label should have been GENIUS. There are people who remember each second of their entire lives, a condition known as Hyperthymesia. Now you are telling me that there isn’t a possibility that Swami Vivekananda’s brain capacity can be somewhere in between such feats? We may know so much about the human brain but we know nothing of the human mind. Stop viewing the world with your limited perceptions. I’m not saying that every story is true but to negate the possibility because I do not understand what is happening is just arrogance and nothing else. Humans think we are the center of the universe when in fact this is what our greatest fear is; to one day wake up and realize that we were never the center. Have a look at this talk and maybe you break your perceptual barriers.
