I'm not sure what you mean by "a unique phenomena". Things I described are simply what I stumbled on, which appeared quite remarkable... it seemed to me that your way was not so clear based on your own words, yet I'm not trying to judge anyone's way. Being certain ? well things seem to me ...

I think what I was trying to say is if you inquired further with the guy, or people like him, about how the stones worked you'd hear some vague reference about chi, prana, or something about mystical or occult energy along those lines. You could bring in ten, fifty, maybe even hundred people, and m...

As for your story with the Boji stones - the trouble with that, while its a wonderful story and I'm glad you're feeling better, events like that generally aren't repeatable. Stellar results can definitely happen in a while when you haven't planned them or don't necessarily know they're going to hap...

All right so to say in short, this esoteric stuff is just meant to be of special interest to some people with some special needs and happening to have all the time of their life to invest themselves in that for unclear results as they happen to have otherwise found nothing better to do of their life...

they're more about sinking into the practice and results Then which practice and which results ? Whatever it is they are doing I did not see clear from the titles what it actually is. Do they reach bliss ? Do they communicate with the dead ? Do they get to remember their past lives ? Do they get mi...

I am rather close to libertarianism but I develop my own version of it , with more in-depth mathematical approaches and careful analysis of logical systems. As I am familiar with the conflict between science and pseudo-science I reject all the climate skepticism of many libertarians as an expression...

Sorry I did not know about Mark Stavish and Gordon White and still now quickly looking at them (while it does not seem easy to get a clear introduction to their works) I still can't find an interest in looking further. The only meaningful info I found is this . You may be surprised but I felt pretty...

The chances for a photon to be deflected by an atom that does not have the relevant energy interval between orbitals are very small. The much more likely result is to go through unaffected, which means that the atom is transparent to such photons. Now what makes usual materials not transparent, and ...

The general problem with Penrose is that he keeps scientifically discrediting the kind of ideas he passes as a defender of , by the flawed details he puts inside. It is possible to argue from the incompleteness theorem that the mind is not a machine , but definitely not in the way he puts forward. A...

I see this presentation by Sean Carrol is quite similar to what I usually find elsewhere. I wrote an introduction to General Relativity in a formally much simpler way, where I can express and justify the main equation without even an explicit use of the tensor formalism, by focusing on the simple bu...

I got a kick of your mentioning my Jane Roberts comment. No I was making my own comment about Jane Roberts independently of yours. I first stumbled on some Seth writings, starting with "Now - and this will seem like a contradiction in terms - there is nonbeing" last winter and found it fa...

I've run across this one before, mainly in how it supposedly destroyed Logicism (Gottlob Frege's the idea that math is a subset of logic). It's one of those problems I find really tedious and haven't examined much on a formal or academic level because it involves extended research of definitions to...

I just looked through this conversation and saw something quite odd with it : however interesting it might be, I only found there 2 messages that I could qualify as related to its title. By this I mean, the care for ideas and arguments to be Based On Physics . The first on-topic message was the very...

I have also been victim of psychiatry, while I never really wanted to visit them but I was forced to do so by all well-intended people around for the mere purpose of filling formalities of stopping work for depression and getting social income. As if it was necessarily preferable for a genius to bec...

Since long this paradox has been analyzed in mathematical logic, namely as a basis of the proof of the incompleteness theorem, and what was discovered, as surprising as it may sound, is the following. In the sentence, "this sentence is false", the problem is neither about the concept of &q...
