On 6-8 December 2019, the Angkor Institute has been invited to join the 2nd International Life Science and Parapsychology Academic Conference held in Halong Bay, Vietnam. The conference was organized by Bingo Wu, gathering Western parapsychologists and scientists and Eastern practitioners, together with a group of children from continental China and Hong Kong schools where they were being taught to develop extra-sensory perceptions and psychic capabilities.
The talks ranged from a proposed theory of the connectedness of consciousness where information can be accessed in altered states of mind to out-of-body experiences at near-death, lucid dreaming and even witchery, on one hand; readings from the ancestral I King method and energetic or Feng Shui teachings, on the other hand.
The most lively part was certainly the demonstrations by the children of blind-folded, psi abilities and mind-to-matter interaction : sorting cards by named colours, solving Rubik's cube, running and biking along a circular path, giving information about written words or re-drawing symbols hidden to their sight, bending or twisting spoons.
At the Angkor Institute, we believe such possibilities of the human potential truly deserves our attention and further studying to address common skepticism. Building on the experience of skilled teachers with blind children (Bingo Wu in China, Mark Komissarov in Russia), we are supporting our LightRise foundation to set a pilot in Siem Reap, Cambodia, to teach blind chidren develop their sixth sense for alleviated and brighter lives.
