Celia Green QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Also, intermediate experiences are reported which are not easily classified as one thing or the other.
Quotation of Celia Green
As I mentioned we have had virtually no financial support since the Cecil King money ended.
Quotation of Celia Green
As it turned out, his hope about priming the pump was scarcely fulfilled so far as the financial response was concerned. Since the end of the seven year covenant we have not had financial support to speak of.
Quotation of Celia Green
As one studies these phenomena one is constantly having reported to one quite small and dull experiences which people have had, which might not be memorable enough for them to send in response to an appeal, nor perhaps even remembered if they are answering a yes/no questionnaire.
Quotation of Celia Green
As our problems are so largely financial, we hope that anyone who comes will be prepared to divide their time between helping with business activities and work on the actual research projects.
Quotation of Celia Green
At the time I wrote Lucid Dreams no laboratory work on lucid dreams had been done and I hoped that I and my associates would be regarded as suitable people to start it.
Quotation of Celia Green
Even the writing of books in our present circumstances is a slow and difficult procedure. Nonetheless we continue to collect cases and will always be pleased to receive cases from your readers to add to our files - anything which they consider illustrative of particularly interesting points.
Quotation of Celia Green
Examples are a person giving a lecture, a dentist extracting a tooth, a person taking a driving test or getting married. We have cases of people watching themselves from the outside in all of these circumstances and several similar ones.
Quotation of Celia Green
From time to time people from all over the world write to us, including several from the USA and Canada, wishing to come and join us in our work. So perhaps I can give this much of a preliminary answer to anyone who may be thinking of doing this.
Quotation of Celia Green
He did not try to dictate at all what we should do with his money, and that was really very lucky, particularly as so many of the areas we were opening up were so uncharted. It would have been difficult to convince anyone else that a particular thing was worth doing.
Quotation of Celia Green
He hoped that this initial work which he was financing would lead to an increasing flow of financial support to the Institute.
Quotation of Celia Green
He saw that there was scope for a much larger scale of research than we could do even with his money.
Quotation of Celia Green
I couldn't say that I foresaw that Lucid Dreams would be the best received of our books.
Quotation of Celia Green
I found when I talked to academics and experts on sleep and dreaming that there seemed to arise in them some profound resistance.
Quotation of Celia Green
I have an effectively unlimited quantity of research and writing projects planned for the future. The extent to which they can be carried out will, unfortunately, continue to be almost entirely determined by the financial resources which are available.
Quotation of Celia Green
I tend to think of these things as a continuum with clusters of characteristics which correspond to various typical forms.
Quotation of Celia Green
I think of them as forming a continuum, because you can find intermediate forms which are not easy to classify. We should also be aware that there may be subclasses which might have different clusters of characteristics.
Quotation of Celia Green
I think that being in an intellectually stimulated state might help, or at least not being excessively bored.
Quotation of Celia Green
It does not take that much for a person to flip into it for a short time, although it seems very likely that there are individual differences which facilitate it.
Quotation of Celia Green
It has been suggested that stress also facilitates lucid dreams but I am keeping an open mind on this, because some of our subjects have told me that they have to be really tranquil in their lives to feel free enough to focus their attention on having lucid dreams.
Quotation of Celia Green
It is difficult to study apparitions or waking dreams except from the reports of those who have had spontaneous experiences of them.
Quotation of Celia Green
It was very difficult to get anyone to talk coherently about them, even if they did not flatly deny the possibility and assert that if people knew they were dreaming and could think fairly rationally, they really must have been awake.
Quotation of Celia Green
It will cover the same ground as the first one, but of course it will include a survey of the work to date in each of the areas covered.
Quotation of Celia Green
King thought he was providing us with the opportunity to demonstrate that there were previously neglected areas where research could be done and also that we at the Institute had the ability to do it.
Quotation of Celia Green
Most of the research which is done is determined by the requirement that it shall, in a fairly obvious and predictable way, reinforce the approved or fashionable theories.
Quotation of Celia Green
Now it is pretty well established that such appeals receive a substantial and fairly consistent response.
Quotation of Celia Green
Now that it has happened, I suppose one can see that it is particularly easy for research on lucid dreams to be expanded because lucid dreams have the rather unique attribute that they are fairly easy for people to develop.
Quotation of Celia Green
Of course everyone is welcome to come and augment our efforts, but I am afraid we cannot offer a salary at present to anyone, although we might be able to give them some help in living fairly inexpensively.
Quotation of Celia Green
On the other hand the most typical lucid dream provides a convincing imitation of physical reality but not of any location particularly well known to the dreamer, and is less likely to include 'traveling' which is regarded as long distance, although flying is fairly common.
Quotation of Celia Green
Part of Cecil King's approach, which made him so congenial a sponsor, was that he regarded his giving us a certain level of financial support for seven years as 'priming the pump.'
Quotation of Celia Green
People did not go around saying 'I dislike the idea of lucid dreams because' - It was simply very difficult to talk to about lucidity.
Quotation of Celia Green
The most typical lucid dream is certainly different in some respect from the most typical OBE.
Quotation of Celia Green
The scale of work which we are able to carry out, and indeed have ever been able to, should certainly not be taken to indicate that we don't have plans for working on a larger scale. We will implement them as soon as we are able to obtain the money.
Quotation of Celia Green
The way to do research is to attack the facts at the point of greatest astonishment.
Quotation of Celia Green
There are, of course, a number of other similarities and differences, which we can only continue to study.
Quotation of Celia Green
There now seem to be several different characteristic types, and they seem to be a fairly constant part of normal human experience.
Quotation of Celia Green
There was, and still is, a prevalent attitude that we only want to know about normality, and if a thing is associated with mental illness, that is good enough to write it off.
Quotation of Celia Green
They started to talk as if what was being discussed was precognitive dreams or narrative dreams or something else.
Quotation of Celia Green
They were just one among a very wide range of special states which I included in my thesis. I knew one or two people who had had quite a number, but they were not talked about much in those days.
Quotation of Celia Green
This does not mean that the research that is done is exactly wrong, only that a great deal of research that might be done is discriminated against, and the reasons for this are not explicitly stated. Lucid dreams provide a good example.
Quotation of Celia Green
This has arisen without any very deliberate efforts being made, just as a result of people being exposed to the idea and perhaps thinking about lucid dreaming as they fell asleep.
Quotation of Celia Green
This started to give me a kind of idea that lucid dreams must cut across some quite important implicit assumptions of their worldview, although they did not cut across anything in mine and seemed only a mildly interesting variant of possible experience.
Quotation of Celia Green
Thus it has been an effort to keep the Institute in existence and to maintain some level of contact with the fields of research which we have opened up.
Quotation of Celia Green
We are planning to follow this with a similar follow-up book on OBEs, which will also update our earlier book in the light of work that has been done since then.
Quotation of Celia Green
We must mention that a considerable proportion of these, as reported, seem to occur while the subject is actually unconscious as a result of the accident or anaesthetic.
Quotation of Celia Green
We should make a distinction, or at least be aware that there may be a distinction, between those that happen in a highly stressed state of waking consciousness and those that happen when the physical body is completely knocked out for normal purposes.
Quotation of Celia Green
When I was in my teens, I had formulated the idea that the greatest advances in science arise where there has been resistance to progress. This is not so much due to the intrinsic intellectual difficulty, but rather the fact that it might threaten the current ideology, whatever it might be.
Quotation of Celia Green
When we founded the Institute we were dependent on obtaining financial support, and we thought the best way of finding it was to start doing what work we could, albeit on a very small and restricted scale.
