Paradigm Errors

#1
There is serious paradigm error in the way people think about psi. The error is that people think the proper way to learn about psi is to set up experiments that demonstrate psychic phenomena under controlled conditions. This error has been around since the beginning of psychical research. The correct way to learn about psi is not to ask psychics to perform tricks. The correct way to learn about psi is to take classes in psychic development and do the work yourself. This applies to the general public as well as parapsychologists. If you want to learn about mathematics you take a class in math. If you want to do original research in math, you take classes for years until you are qualified to do original work in mathematics. If you don't have talent in math then you should find something else to do. If for some reason you are fascinated by math but don't have the talent to do it yourself, you might find it satisfying to read books about mathematicians. In any case you wouldn't ask professional mathematicians to solve problems in a lab setting to prove they can do it.

Another paradigm error is that ESP is considered to be distinct from afterlife phenomena. ESP is not produced by the brain. The very existence of ESP is evidence that consciousness is not produced by the brain and it corroborates the evidence of the afterlife. Parapsychologists will never understand ESP until they understand survival. Hypotheses to explain ESP through physical phenomenon like quantum entanglement are no better than epicycles were to astronomers. There is no way quantum entanglement can be established between two human brains to produce telepathy. If quantum entanglement were established, it wouldn't do any good because the structures in one brain would be unique to that brain and meaningless to any other consciousness. Hypotheses of physical explanations for ESP are a blind alley and will only delay the time that the correct understanding is arrived at.

Can you give an example of any parapsychology research that does not betray your correct way?
Jim is basically saying that if you want to understand psi the best way is to experience it. And he's right about that part. Experience is more convincing than all the evidence in the world.

He's speculating about some other stuff and I can't comment on that.

So instead of testing objectively, like para psychologists do, we should instead take classes which will likely result in huge amounts of confirmation bias.

There's no doubt the best arbiter to truth is personal experience.
Jim is speculating, but really conjecturing. Isn't that the truth.?

Please leave this forum. You are not allowed here. And this sort of trolling demonstrates why. Would you do this on your own please or do I have to involve the mods?
