For Parapsychology, this 100% failure rate across the entire gamut of laboratory studies is nothing less than catastrophic. Parapsychology appears to have lost its way. A more fruitful approach is necessary. Ideas about this will follow.
In a previous post I reviewed the current status of psychical research in reference to so-called ‘confirmatory studies’ of laboratory psi. I concluded that the body of recent evidence suggests that the non-existence of laboratory psi is looking ever more certain. The case for the existence of laboratory psi appears to rely almost entirely onContinue reading “Disquieting Features of Two ‘Confirmatory’ Psi Studies by Patrizio Tressoldi”
Previously the evidence for psi was drawn from exploratory studies that do not adhere to the standards that are replicable across different laboratories. It is possible now to summarise the findings of empirical evidence drawn from confirmatory studies that enable one to draw firm conclusions. The existence of this solid data-base of empirical evidence inContinue reading “The Non-existence of Laboratory Psi Looks Ever More Certain from Recent Confirmatory Research in Parapsychology”
James E Kennedy’s review of my book contains a mixture of faint praise, criticism, slurs and huge red herrings thrown in for good measure. In any book author’s life, a review by a respected figure, extending to six pages, is potentially a fillip, and I acknowledge James Kennedy for putting in the effort.
