    I have no independent knowledge of it. The Wiki article is damning. Al has mentioned it here.

    Absolutely and totally full of shit. Way overly complicated experiments with idiotic conclusions.

    I do have an anecdote however. I knew an attractive woman who when she was young, worked at Duke University, escorting psychic medium test and experiment candidates for a paranormal investigation. She took them from the airport to the hotel and to the experiments. She also "baby sat" them during quiet moments. I asked her if, after years of contact, she thought any were "real". She said, "You know I even (and she started to say "slept with some" and corrected it midstream to "dated some") and I still don't know. Does sleeping with a psychic give you some particular insight?

    Well, it's clear to me that the Universe is running on a repeating loop and there's something dicky with the "erase" function sometimes. Hence Presque and Deja vu. Is this not obvious?

    Apparently not since she still doesn't know. My favorite psychic joke was by Jay Leno on headlines you will never see: Psychic wins Lottery!

    How do you know that every single lottery winner in the history of mankind wasn't Psychic?

    Posted By: sonoboyThis happened to me today and is a good indicator of why I cannot accept the view of most who post here,, that we live in an objective reality.


    We already knew you did not live in reality :p. Heck some of your post are surreal.

    Do you want the executive summary (horseshit) or do you want the longer explanation ?

    VR isn't virtual-reality--it's augmented visual projection, by and large. What does the typical VR experience mean to a blind person? Does he or she get the tactile, odor, taste sensations?

    But you'll agree that you'd never fool a blind man with this setup--i.e., not "reality" at all.

    Well, it virtually is. For some value of "virtually".

    And you won't fool sighted persons because the visual content is low-res shallow crap too.

    I buried a blackbird today. Found the corpse under the apple tree while collecting some of the failed apples that fell off. The soil is pretty dry. I think I saw the bird a few times last week on the ground spreading its wings in the sun. Maybe it had parasites or was malfunctioning. Could it have been knocked out by a falling apple? I don't know.

    The compost heap smells funny (NOT FUNNY!) and the rain bucket is full of mosquitoes.
