Tesla: the link between lucid dreaming and photographic memory

Varamyr (@Varamyr) 7 years, 7 months ago

I’ve a theory about the develeping/unlocking of this out standing memory (and not only). Let’s first of all introduce who is Tesla. Nikola Tesla was a 19th century’s inventor. He is considered the father of electric engineering. He had a photographic memory and the ability to completly lose the visual connection with reality, to get into his thoughts-world, where he could shape every sort of complex image, and used this skill to perform his experiments, rather than build prototypes or simply drawing datasheets. He fully got the control of this sci-fi power at 17 years old, before he often had to passively watch unreal streams of images. He also needed just two hours a day of sleep.

My idea: Tesla “simply” had a brain which naturally tended to tune itself into the same frequency everyone of us experiences when in the REM phase. This could also explain why he needed such a little amount of sleep: he had to spend time sleeping just to pass through the SWS phase, so 2h were enough.
To survive Tesla had to become always more aware, and this probably led him to an awesome memory, which mixed up with his natural tendecy to think by vivid images gave him the so called photographic memory.

So I seriously think that with serious meditation, lucid dreaming and a proper use of psychedelics we could develop these skills, the main point is just to understand how to make the transition from wake state to REM state immediate and to be really “in the moment”.
I think my hypothesis are right because I’ve read also that many monachs unlocks photographic memory and also because in “turn on, tune in and drop out” leary talks about a man, an evolutionary agent, which used lsd and which had photographic memory. On a forum I also found an about 25 years old user claiming to have the skill and to have used lsd about 175 times. Of course I can’t verify the honesty of these datas.
Personally it often happens to me that when I wake up from a lucid dream with closed eyes I still see an image very clearly, and I have read on dreamviews about other people which experience this. it sound to me like a very primitive version of how it could be like to watch your data with a photographic memory.

My last point is about the fact that Tesla abilities decreased when he was old. At that age Tesla developed also a lot of idisyncrasies, and since this issues are usually mirrors of inner psychological problems (he kinda forced himself to asexuality), it seems that a person which is not in touch with his/her self will find more hard to develop this stuff. And this shows why indeed monachs and psychedelic users could.

What is your opinion?

You’re not far from the truth, I think, but it also depends on where you live and what your lifestyle is. “Sleep is the best meditation” – Dalai Lama
For a mind to work that great with no stress to the organism at all it has to be at peace almost all of the time. For that to happen, you have to quit school or a job you have and go somewhere where you won’t stress your organism to need the deep sleep so often. Even away from other people, which would alienate you, if you want such focus and no distractions whatsoever. Basically, I think you have to be spoiled with resources as well. Let’s not forget that a drastic change of such lifestyle can damage your perception of reality, just because our bodies have to get used to a certain level of workflow without disturbance. The changes are more exhausting than the hours put to work. It has to be your natural habitat and as we all know that’s almost impossible and he suffered a lot despite of his efforts. He also was a vegetarian which gives the organism more mental energy, because it’s easier to digest – less work for the body – more work for the mind – less sleep. It’s good to know that you also have to be completely obsessed and have almost no personal life, but still achieve a healthy one in celibacy. I like to think acid can help people feel less stressed in ridiculously stressful environments, but that would still require everything else I mentioned. I guess why not?
