Nothing is controlled. That is merely a particular perspective.
Energy merely interacts and we humans have the awareness to see patterns in theses interactions. We can then observe specific outcomes from certain patterns. We describe this as harnessing the energy.
The fact is, by observing specific patterns we exclude all other interactions that are occurring simultaneously, 4 dimensionally. This is how we select reality. All the other interactions also create realities, but we allocate all other realities to the paranormal, dream-state, fantasy, illusion, delusion.
That is the human condition.
