Intramonadic Communication is a Connection Outcome. Intramonadic communication is communication between the Bodily Ego and some monadic location with The Fabric of Consciousness. Intramonadic communication can occur during a Connection Experience, when the Bodily Ego makes a Connection with a Spiritual Ego (i.e. Monad), and it can occur outsid of a Connection Experience, as when physical reality is manipulated in order to convey a spiritual message (e.g., Synchronicity, Automatic Writings, Trance Channeling, etc.) one's own or someone else's, and then receives information from that monad.

Notes

Immanuel Kant discusses the possibility of IMC in the context of Indirect Mystical Experience. "According to Kant, influxes from the spirit-world can cause “analogous” sensible images or representations to arise in the mind of certain imaginatively sensitive people. Such people, like Swedenborg, would be able to decipher these symbolic images and thereby become indirectly aware of the spiritual realities at their basis."[1] Kant, however, notes that there is an epistemological challenge in sorting out real "spirit sensations" from those "mixed up with various figments of the imagination....The mystic perceives a chaotic jumble of equally vivid sensible images and is unable to determine which, if any, of these images has a veridical spirit-influx at its basis."[2]

Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, recounts an afternoon spent communicating with the disincarnate spirits of Nantucket.[3]

Karl Hanes reports a case study of an individual who had an "encounter with other beings or forms of energy..."[4] "I could feel a connection to these energy forms and even felt I could communicate with them...I felt as though wherever I thought of I could be there if I wanted to, or whoever I thought of I could know things about them, such as their thoughts and feelings."[5]

William James relates the experience of a forty-nine year old engaged in intramonadic communication with God. "God is more real to me than any thought or thing or person. I feel his presence positively, and the more as I live in closer harmony with his laws as written in my body and mind.[6] I feel him in the sunshine or rain; and awe mingled with a delicious restfulness most nearly describes my feelings. I talk to him as to a companion in prayer and praise, and our communion is delightful. He answers me again and again, often in words so clearly spoken that it seems my outer ear must have carried"[7]

James notes another "God is quite real to me. I talk to him and often get answers. Thoughts sudden and distinct from any I have been entertaining come to my mind after asking God for his direction.[8]
