The Rosenthal Effect is real. Which is why studies are now done "double blind". However, to draw conclusions related to "right brain orientation" versus "left brain orientation" -- are questionable. Also, FYI -- electrons are not EITHER particles or waves. In fact they are NEITHER particles nor waves. They are entities that show particle or wavelike attributes depe

> As Stan said, 1G of acceleration for 1 year will get you near light speed. That’s 1 G for a whole year! We can barely burn rockets for 5 minutes. Because of the unfathomable amount of fuel required, chemical rockets are out of the question, and Ions are far too inadequate. Just warp the space in front of the ship. The ship slides "downhill".

> I heard it differently. That the navy was seeking a way to create radar invisibility because the German submarines were knocking our ships off like crazy. Big electric techniques could be used to degauuss ships so they wouldn't attract mines . Supposedly the crew was indeed damaged.. but the Eldridge was not transported to Virginia and back.

You can read the wild tales and bar stories here. Within them you can see a few grains of truth. One thing to notice. The stories do not mention (a) the NRL or (b) Tom Brown. Interesting, yes? BTW -- Tesla high voltage generators would, I think, have been used -- that part would be accurate -- I don't think there was any other way to generate very high voltages back then. But almost everything w

Actually, one day I will post on this at length. Much of the information about what happened is disinformation or guys telling tall tales over beers in bars....but: Once upon a time in the late 1930's the US Navy was using a new process to weld ship hulls with heavy armor plate. The new technique used massive capacitor banks, which when discharged would produce a very clean weld of the plates du

> Also, by virtue of the technology, a ‘lifter technology’ would need to be quite light, possibly flimsy and likely pretty vulnerable. Yet these craft are reported flying solo, never escorted by conventional or any other type of military aircraft. Umm...no. Actually a dirigible is pretty heavy.

One theory of the black triangle craft is that they are in fact effectively dirigibles using the "ionic wind" effect of the lifter technology first studied back in the 1930's and developed in the 1950's before it became deep black classified. The thing about lifter technology is that it becomes exponentially much more effective at high voltage levels using dialectric materials. The pro

When dealing with polls, it is necessary to know: (a) What specifically were the questions? It is very easy to bias a poll to get slanted results -- special interest groups do this all the time. (b) What were the demographics of the poll? That is, who was targeted? It is also very easy to bias poll results this way, even inadvertently. For example, if I targeted the region between 2800 North to 4

I think the "point" is misleading. Here is a thought experiment to show why. Assume I classify a population into 50 or so "groups". Political demographers do this all the time to target campaign advertising. Assume further that the candidate wins. Now -- is it valid to pick one group out of the say 25 groups from which the majority voted for the candidate and say -- "Aha!

Interesting but true anecdote on this. Robert McNamara directed the installation of what were known as "Permissive Action Links" on all the Minuteman missiles.

Dark matter is postulated because: (1) The motions of galaxies and galactic superstructures don't "fit" unless gravity is stronger than it would appear to be, if gravity was only due to "light" matter. (2) The large scale super-structures in the visible universe require more gravity so that they will take the shapes that they currently have. Therefore, in essence, more gravi

Possibility #4: To enable an environment in which Free Will is possible, requires a universe that follows fixed laws. Ergo, if Free Will is viewed as desirable and "good", then one must permit a universe that obeys fixed laws. Think it through for a while. C.S.

AJG - you might find this posting of interest: Faerie Abductions. Jacques Vallee did note the relationship between accounts of abductions by demons in the middle ages and the abductions by faeries and by UFOs. All quite similar. However -- I would _not_ equate all fey to demons. Nor do I think all UFO sightings are demonic, not even most of them.
