      Hi
      I’ve heard a lot of people talk about ESP or Extra Sensory Powers.
      Do they existy, i mean such powers associated with ur dreams and stuff. They don’t right? I mean, that’s just biologicallyimposible, right?
      Thanx

      there was a test done on some certain ESP and it turned out negative on all the ones ive heard of, dreams are to do with your sub-conscience (prob spelt that wrong), i dont beleive personally in ESP as its far-fetched to be real, its only really a dream some people have made up in hope that they hve some form of super powers or at least thats wat i think

      Read up on James Randi(the magician) and his efforts to debunk sleight of hand and whatnot involved in most instances of "paranormal" activity.

      That’s right. Have you seen the movie "Minority Report" (i think that’s the name, not sure 😳 )? It’s about some woman with ESP. I mean, it’s practically impossible. I agree, nothing like that exists. 😀
      Thanx

      Can the inactive parts of our brain, actually SEE the future. I feel, it’s usually by some kinda sheer luck.

      Well, currently we have no way of knowing that scientifically, so it depends on whether you’re a believer of the scientific method or something else. But to scientist it’s a little hard to acknowledge something like that.

      It might be able to see into the future, but then you’ll have to assume that the future is already determined and that free will is an illusion. To some that’s even a harder pill to swallow.

      Agreed, seeing the future means knowing what everyone is going to think and do…

      Actually, some believe that "prophesies" only tell what might happen, not what’s guaranteed to happen. But I still wouldn’t put my faith in it, since most such predictions are only made after the fact. For example, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, everyone wanted to claim that Nostradamus or some other psychic had predicted it, but such claims are worthless if we can’t tell what’s going to happen before it actually happens.[/code]

      What might happen? Cool! The Sun will explode in 10 seconds. It might happen, although not a very big probability. Still there? Aaaaaaaaaaah

      Even if the future were predefined, there’s no biological mechanism that should allow someone to have advanced knowledge of it. Maybe there is more to the world than what we see, but for now it’s all purely speculation, and it’s all metascience.

      Exactly… There’s this psychic guy in our locality who predicted that the tsunami would occur again b’fore 2010 and that over half of our city would be vanquished. Honestly, he said that there would be an earthquake in the Himalayas and that half of India would be destroyed…AND he even said thet the Sun is gonna explode. 🙄 🙄 🙄
      (that’s the stuff u were talking abt, Mr Mistery).

      The sun will explode.. Maybe not the best term. it’s part of a star’s regular life cycle. It will eventually turn into a black hole. But that will happen in a few bilion years…

      And yet, horoscopes are read seriously by a large majority of the U.S. population. Everyone keeps talking about a "science gap"…it’s easy to see why there is one.

      I do not think ESP is impossible. Maybe not seeing future, but there is a way that body can harness and control energy. I have seen it, but that is other story.

      Depends on what you call ESP. If you simply mean detecting things through methods other than the five senses, then yes, I believe such is possible because I have experienced it. But a lot of what is sometimes called ESP, I am very doubtful.

      Yes, and the molecule D-lysergic acid diethylamide is just one of the many vessels by which this can be achieved.

      Sorry, that was a bit too cheeky, yet too funny to erase.
      I do think that there are phenomenon that cannot (yet) be explained by science, such as preknowledge or clairvoyance. What does that mean? Is it coincidence? It indicates to me that there is still a lot that we don’t know.

      You have SEEN it!!!
      Why don’t you tell us all about it? Just so that we also aware of the features of ESP?

      Our psychic told us it would happen by 2010… 😆
