Chapter Five: Impressions
Kathy could not shake the feeling that Jim had wanted to tell her something. It grew in her.
It was oppressive.
Hours passed, and that feeling lingered, it was like a stone laid across her chest, pushing the air out of her. It was like a heavy smoke, thick and oily that filled her lungs.
The despair was so strong in him, it was like a vacuum. She found it difficult to breathe.
She mustered all of her mental resources, her deep training, and the comfort of the ancestral voices within her, so that she could stay in the moment and not flee.
Kathy was never the type to run from anything.
She had a poised and practiced patience that was equal to the greatest mystics the world had ever known. This is not to say that the task of remaining calm in the midst of strong emotions did not require work, it did, it took work, but Kathy had never failed to live up to the challenge.
In that moment she discovered something new.
Kathy had always been able to link her mind to that of another person; to read their thoughts, to be one with them, see through their eyes, feel what they feel; to be in their present as if there were no distance between herself and the self of the other.
This was possible because in reality there was no distance between the selves of individuals. She knew this to be true, even while neuro-physicists were still working out the possible mechanics of this reality. The quantum mechanics of the electromagnetic field made this so.
All of space and time were interconnected, it was called entanglement, in the entangled reality of consciousness there was no distance between one person and the next. The truth of this is what made Kathy’s gifts possible. This reality was what explained all so-called “psychic” phenomenon.
What differentiated Kathy from every other human being that had come before her, was the architecture of her brain, and the fact that she had a greater concentration of certain nano-particles floating like free radicals through her cerebellum. This gave her a better “antenna,” better by an order of magnitude, than any other person in human history.
