From where you are sitting, find a small object across the room. Now look at something about 90 degrees from it. Now close your eyes. With your eyes closed, point at the original small object, then open your eyes. Were you pointing at it? I have yet to train with a human being that could not point PRECISELY at the thing that they can not see. Once they "believe" they can do it more accurately than they can do it with their eyes open, the neural pathway gets opened up and they find that they often CAN do it more precisely with their eyes closed. I've talked at length with a few blind people and they helped me study the mechanism by which this happens. If you ever get the chance... ask a blind person how they see the world. It might surprise you.
Take a very full glass of water and attempt to walk across the room. First by staring at the water, then by completely removing the water from your sight. Ignore the water, and you don't spill.
Evidence of our subconscious minds ability to interface with our world better than our conscious mind can be seen almost everywhere. I can list hundreds of examples, but suffice it to say that mans abilities far outpace what is known to us. This concept is heavily entwined in our training programs. As it pertains to this topic of discussion in this thread, every human being has a "level" built into our bodies. Our bodies operate things in the physical world according to input from that level, and we can not see it. Our brain functions at a more precise and FAR faster rate than our capacity for conscious thought. This is a hardened FACT. Taking advantage of that fact is one of the core principles of my entire methodology.
Carrying a glass of water without spilling must be "allowed" to happen, not forced. In this way, much of operating a precision rifle must be allowed to happen, not forced. This is easily evident and proven when I can take a student struggling to produce a 1" group at 25x magnification, and have them shoot their next group under .25" at 5x magnification. Any of you whom have read my articles on our website regarding shooting technique will see this mindset heavily embedded in what I teach.
