      The Evidence for Psi

      This may have been posted before but it deserves a re-post in any case. His books are also a good read.

      Haha one and a half hour video along with barely one line of text. You cannot seriously expect anyone to watch this.

      I watched it. I found it very interesting. Then I made the mistake of trying to share some of the ideas with my husband. We wound up having a fight which started by me feeling like he was ridiculing my interest. He is usually an open minded man, but not about this, which is a shame because I have a growing interest in psi, mostly because some dreams of mine I believe have been precog dreams.
      You may say I'm a dreamer.

      So I was bored and actually watched parts of the video, actually it is quite interesting. It definitely raises questions that, if the methodology was correct, we cannot answer. The talker spends a lot of time talking about the taboo of researching psi, which is a good point, given that we apparently have some evidence.

      This video discusses a topic that is near and dear to me. I first started school, pursuing a neuroscience and biochemistry double major. I really wanted to research obscure aspects of consciousness and the brain that are not being actively explored. I eventually found out that the things that are researched the most are things that have the largest potential for commercialization and profit. I also found out about corruption within the academic community where corporations can buy the results that they want. Even if the research doesn't support it, the researcher will sometimes add a tagline somewhere in the conclusion that can be used out of context to give the corporations what they wanted. This really upset me, especially the level of taboo surrounding some issues like psychic phenomena.

      It reminds me of the way that the catholic church treated scientists after the scientific revolution and the age of enlightenment. Especially the way that some scientists can be ridiculed and completely ostracized from the community because of some ideas that they have. I think that it is of the utmost importance that scientists in particular keep open minds and avoid the crystallization and stagnancy of their beliefs about the world.

      However, I have noticed that a lot of professors that have their entire identities tied into what they teach, can become quite irrational when ideas that are contradictory to their teachings are proposed. I think that this is because these new ideas that contradict what they have been teaching have the potential to completely undermine everything that they believe they have accomplished through teaching, because it would mean that what they have been teaching wasn't the whole truth.

      Science and spirituality were once intertwined and I honestly believe that we will eventually approach a state wherein the two come back together again.
