Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

Some more on the telepathy issue: First of all, I'd like to make the note that prof. Bem seems to have emphasised the harder parts of ESP and not the easier part that's telepathy. I find this dubious! Secondly, I think their data-set has been fixed so that 53% is 53% and not the much clearer rate wi...

Histories of Philosophy

I'm listening to Stephen Fry, the comedian telling about his interest in philosophy and he's citing "A History of Western Philosophy" by Bertrand Russell, implicitly, which stands at 895 pages that I find respectable.

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

"Umm...wasn't that the point?" It doesn't relate to the importance of telepathy and he doesn't back it up!!! What are his references? So do you think that his junk list compares to telepathy as published by "psychology’s most respected journals"? Are you seriously backing his non-referenced junk lis...

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

chaz wyman, it's alright... I have nothing further at this point, I'm just saying the issue of telepathy is very much alive and how more recent an academic reference than 2011 can you get?

So, all you want, discuss, please, or write or whatever. Cheers! :)

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

Did you read the whole article that you cited? You failed to cite properly! There are 2 articles there! (Well, well, 1 article and 1 paper!) [Edit:] Also, you fail to recognise that there are 9, nine, different set-ups and you, by your mistake, reason consequently that the whole research is just cra...

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

Let me add another point. Just because people have had "farm machines" and use these to prove that the Neutron exists and they've failed at it many thousands of times, doesn't mean that the Neutron doesn't exist because it does exist! And it has been proven by people who used the proper equipment an...

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

First of all, you fail to cite properly , converge! And you have no credits (that we know of) to deem significant research vs. insignificant research (to which I favour prof. Bem's judgment)!!! Moreover, such an off-hand remark over the "thousands of failed experiments" carries no weight as 1. they ...

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

You heard him Aetixintro. CASE CLOSED!!! Just because you support the short-sight doesn't mean that this forum has successfully discussed the case of telepathy. Just as me, you haven't made much academic references yourself. I don't blame you (the repliers to this topic) for this, but it doesn't ma...

Re: A Possible Explanation to the Phenomenon of "Telepathy"

Just a note, people. There is indeed a common explanation in physics that can be used in this relation and it's called Twin Spin . I don't know where it's from or what evidence/experiments that are underlying this term. You can search a little too if you want. I think it goes: let's say a person som...

Re: Over the Business Section of the BBC World

I know, but we can to greater degrees become more used to translation tools for our software! Thus, very ignorant to the U.S. Americans, normatively probably, we should have guidelines on how to make translation available in all software (where useful) and perhaps to greater extents use translators ...

Over the Business Section of the BBC World

as a matter of Economy. Perhaps we can build a fine thread (by the example of Barbara Brooks) on the subject of the Business Section of the BBC World. The section is found here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business/ . For example: some time ago, I requested the addition of the Italian and Spanish stoc...

On the Definite Value of Higher Education to Society - Econ.

As a matter of Economics: Question, shouldn't there be a quantified number for what the universities' turnover is, at least crudely and that this in turn yields an Efficiency number?

Re: On the Definition of a Black Hole

It's NO about definition (of a black hole) as such! No, you misunderstand. It's about this: ... defined (as opposed to tacky ) ... Dictionary.com for "tacky" if you like. The importance of this discussion hinges on what the nature of Black Holes is and thus how this nature has implication on a tacky...
