"Thank you for the detailed reply. Your problem is, though, that you are assuming the *power*, without any observation, let alone independent observation. All the effects you refer to can be explained by other means and there is no need for adding the complexity of some power"


Actually Susan, what I had thought I made clear in that answer is that I do NOT presuppose that syncs are caused by a designing agent. That's certainly possible, but when I said 'effect' I was referring to an alternative non-random possibility, other than one involving a "designing power."

I am open to all sorts of explanations, but this is secondary to what must be established firmly first: the presentation of evidence which raises the possibility, or the likelihood of an outcome being non-random. This is a huge first step, if it is done properly, and one that speaks to our innate wiring, where we tend to reject Chance when improbability levels reach a certain threshold.
