    Dr. Philip Goff, Will Academia Get Beyond Materialism? |409|

    Having just finished a Masters of Research in Cognitive Science, I must say that the academic study in the science of the human mind is highly depressing. There is literally millions of dollars being spent on looking at correlations between psychological attributes: memory, learning, attention...

    Dr. Dean Radin Brings Real Magic to the Psi Lab |377|

    If you are so amazed and shocked by a spoon breaking to the point where you think I must have made the story up, you are more gullible the I am.

    Bernardo Kastrup, Mainstreaming Controversial Philosophy of Mind Theories |378|

    I wish Bernardo Kastrup's suggestion that increased mystical experiences were associated with decreased brain activity were straight forwardly correct, but I fear that like most attempts at finding neural correlates of complex psychological states, it will turn out to be not that simple. Some...

    Dr. Dean Radin Brings Real Magic to the Psi Lab |377|

    I'm interested to see what Radin's new book really says. Modern science sprang out of spiritualism and the Occult. The Occult still permeates science more then most scientist would like to admit. Ritualistic lab protocols, sacred "tomes" like the journal "Nature" etc., that only distribute...

    Dr. Dean Radin Brings Real Magic to the Psi Lab |377|

    A couple of weeks ago I saw a video on spoon-bending psychic Uri Geller. I was somewhat skeptical about the high praise that was being given toward Geller and described him as nothing more then an illusionist and entertainer. About five minutes later I grabbed a spoon to mix a bowl of salad...

    Michael Tsarion on Race, Jordan Peterson, and Why Conspiracy Work is Spiritual Work |372|

    That the so-called innate saliency of race or racial differences may not necessarily be so obvious to children. The division by race is one which we facilitate by socially reinforcing it with racial stereotypes and pseudoscientific talk about genetic differences between race.

    Michael Tsarion on Race, Jordan Peterson, and Why Conspiracy Work is Spiritual Work |372|

    Not more of this white “victim-hood.” America seems to be a one giant band-wagon of claiming discrimination and victimisation in all aspects of its society.

    Anomalies in statistical trends are sometimes just noise and sometimes they are important clues. Exemptions that prove the rule.

    Michael Tsarion on Race, Jordan Peterson, and Why Conspiracy Work is Spiritual Work |372|

    The tiresome argument of "that is just an anecdote" continues. There is nothing wrong with anecdotes as long as they can be proved and are not just rumours. In science they call anecdotes "case studies." Finding exceptions to general statistical trends are also important because if we ignore...

    Michael Tsarion on Race, Jordan Peterson, and Why Conspiracy Work is Spiritual Work |372|

    All this video tells me is that many Americans and British, of all skin colors are racist. This is no surprise to me but where do these seeds of racism come from? No American who votes in America does so free of influence of ethnicity, ideology, economic class or religion. None of these factors...

    I agree with most of what you say...but black people are good at sport??? Isn’t that a generalisation? There are many cultural reasons why most NFL players are black. Yes, the fastest men ever recorded are of West African heritage, but that is just one region of Africa. I think we need to...

    What do you mean by black ancestors? We all come from black ancestors. Do you mean black people from Africa or black people from Australia, or both? If you mean Africans, do you mean sub-saharan Africans or North Africans? I agree with you that you can't state much about human phenotypes...

    Even more damning for the out-dated "Genetic Blueprint" argument is the evidence of epigenetic effects caused by psychological states such mood disorders and social impacts such as childhood abuse.

    Everyone is genetically different to some extent. Biologists are interested in genetic variation. Racial phenotypic features such as different skin and eye colour account for very little genetic variation. Put in simple terms, Mr blonde-haired blue-eyed Klaus from Germany may be more...

    I understand the notion of race as to be the rather outdated idea that certain phenotypical features e.g. skin pigment, eye colour, hair etc. identify unique genetic properties of people. We know who this to be total bullshit. The notion of a race defined by physical characteristics such as...

    Stanton Friedman on Jacques Vallee and UFOs/Consciousness |367|

    Contrary to what some neuroscientists and philosophers will tell you, science is no where near to telling us how consciousness relates to the physical world. When I have a memory of what the moon looked like five days ago, where does this memory image exist in relation to my current perception...

    Gordon White, Will Magic Kill Parapsychology? |366|

    Magick (good and bad) is all around us and its manifestations are usually trivial to the untrained eye. The usual human response to everyday Magick is laughter. A good Magician always finds the world both amazingly weird, nonsensical and funny. A good Magician just goes with the flow. The...
