I am inclined to think that only the conscious tip of self experiences time as a sequence. Part of the unconscious self may well experience time as physics describes it, a set of events arranged in an order. So we can create our own fate without having it dictated. Some of the sychronicities then might have no external source at all but stem from our being a part of an ultimately timeless et

Thanks for the links. I tend to think of time as an experience of the consciousness. An anti-particle on it's own would need something to experience it and possibly a universal expansion and entropy increase.

That was a useful and instructive description. Pity it stuffs up some of my idle thoughts. I had wondered if an electron and the positron it annihilates with are different states of the same system, only with it's time arrow reversing at the point of annihilation.

To pop in my twopenneth in on the "Where has all the antimatter gone?" debate, I pondered whether most of the antimatter formed at the Big Bang coalesced into an anti-universe in anti time, i.e. existing technically before the Big Bang to us but from it's residents perspective starting at the big bang. In that way the Big bang could have spawned two universes, our electron dominated

Without breaking free of relativity completely I have wondered if an object could possess negative mass? If so could it exceed 186,000 mps?

To confirm Laird's explanation, the process of entanglement is supposed to merge the two particles into a single system. So the information stays put in the two parts of the syatem.

Thanks for the reply. I must admit I used the term brilliant partly as a touch of sarcasm, but also as a nod to quite how effective in can be in the popular media. He uses mockery and distraction as any stage conjuror. The subject is rendered toxic to inquiry by fear of social embarassment.

Been a quiet AOM, but tis the season. Everyone is busy. As a person interested in any kind of experiment for phenomena which should not be present according to materialism, I have found the name Wiseman pop up a few times. On each and every occasion where he encounters an unusual phenomena I see he has developed a brilliant method. Note the level of the effect, then set a random bar for it

An experience which has no veridical conformation can and will be dismissed out of hand by a sceptic. It is of most use of course to the individual, but as independant evidence it is lacking as there is an alternative explanation for it. To establish this as a real phenomena rather than a trick of the mind we need something verifiable which the subject would not have been exposed to.

Had a spot of time to think over this. I recall a documentary where the usual pseudosceptics (Blackmoore, Wiseman etc) responded to this type of evidence by suggesting that the memories were created by hallucination in the mid-brain. I have to say that sounded a little desperate at the time, more so considering that Pam had no brainstem activity and no way to hear or see the details she reporte

Thanks for that. A quick search on the internet found this statement by Pam Reynolds herself, cut and pasted by me for anyone reading this; The next thing I recall was the sound: It was a Natural "D." As I listened to the sound, I felt it was pulling me out of the top of my head. The further out of my body I got, the more clear the tone became. I had the impression it was like a road

This is a standard question I know, but I have a few of them I'd like to ask. Is there a particularly outstanding case we could link to and pick over? I am aware that it is known for persons to possess knowledge of when they were on the operating table and showing a flatline, especially visual info.

The best logical test for the reality of such creatures is indeed to ask a mathematical or better still scientific question. Something extremely limited in availability but which a more advanced being as is claimed should be expected to have access to. An ideal subjest might be the results from the Large Hadron Collider? Can an entity predict some of the results of these experiments? Can they

To be fair to the naysayers the confirmed fakes are all first or second attempts. People who have been doing this for years will naturally have built up a considerable skill set in this regard. Besides how many variables are there to play with? The target needs to have a massive number of potential misses compared to potential hits or the result can be close to chance.

There is an obvious flaw in this experiment. You have ignored Doug and Dave's many later adherents who will read this post, then go out, make a crop circle to order, and have a long cruel laugh at your expense. If you want to try this, you need to do it as a closed experiment. Only tell a select number of people whom you trust not to spread this attempt like "I can't believe it's not bu

During the early 80s the leadership of the USSR became convinced that the west was planning to make a pre-emptive strike, due to their own paranoia and twisted interpretations of WWII. Intelligence agencies were required to list actions which fell in line with the expected attack. When a certain number had been observed, the USSR would counterstrike. KGB officers in the west saw no such action

The notion of consciousness running a loop of life might find faour with one of the latest Timeless Spacetime. I started a science chat on this recently. In this type of model ideas such as now are quite illusional. Relativity rules out a universal now. Every event plays out as a part of a single whole, which might be viewed as a single entity or pattern. As a result, couldn't other, connec

It's the psychosis bit that does the harm. Some of the first test subjects took years to recover from the psychological damage it did. Abusers of this drug can be a real threat to themselves and others. Yes I also think alchohol should be restricted to controlled amounts because too many are too stupid to drink responsibly. LSD is like most other drugs, for controlled application only.

Agreed Fuzzy and Raja. These are potent and dangerous drugs being described. Using them without professional training and back up is no different to driving a truck without taking lessons or playing with a real gun. LSD should have been improving lives since the sixties instead of wrecking them.
