Hello all, To clarify, I'm not a skeptic (in the militant sense) but I do have concern about their criticisms of parapsychology sometimes. Such as here: https://www.gu.se/english/research/publication?publicationId=105460 This is only a test related to a single area of psychical studies, the Ganzfeld experiments, I understand, and there are a lot of other significant studies into other psi related abilities outside of it. And I had a conversation (last night) with Dean Radin over email about the relevance of the paper, and he made some clarifications for me, but I'm still stomped what to think of it. Also waiting for a response to it by Chris Carter (he takes a day or two) I mean, to think that one of the most replicated and debated studies in the world of parapsychology is just the effect of cognitive illusion is pretty alarming to me as a possibility. I don't know if she's still around but a certain female skeptic and long time poster around these parts saw some kind of significance in it. And it's a paper I don't see debated here at all, so I'd love to see what you all think? Especially psi proponents. Edit: It occurs to me now that this paper was written in 2004 and presented at a convention of some kind. So it would seem parapsychologists are not naive to this paper, yet have been carrying on with Ganzfeld experiments since. Didn't one of the authors (Westerlund) since have a hand in improving the experiments, so maybe this paper isn't even relevant?
