I just realized that I might have proof of psi.

So i just realized it today, like an hour ago. so my laptop went into hibernation while i was doing some basic energy charging and moving excercises. and when i went to touch the touch pad, it woke up like i had touched it, except that my finger was about a quarter of an inch away. and no, i dont have a sensor that would no it was there.

So then I thought that something might have dropped on it and woken it up that way, so to test it i moved my finger (maintaining the quarter inch height above the pad) around, and the cursor on the screen moved with it.

Now, it might just be because im on for machine empathy (which dan will almost certainly try to shoot down again because i really meant it when i said that I CANT AFFECT YOUR COMPUTER FROM A WHOLE STATE AWAY!!!! or more than a state. in fact, more than a mile gets to be really straining), or for some other factor, but i think that this might qualify as semi-legitimate "proof of psi" material.

body heat. It's all you need to use most touch pads.

Try moving the cursor with like a pensil or something...if it works, bring the pencil close to it, and see if it moves...if not, try charging the pencil, and see if you get the same effect. And what G2 said, some of those pads probably use heat...

Heat up something metal, and see if the pad reacts to that approaching it.

i figured it out. its not heat, and its not psi, although psi could expand it. its actually supposed to pick up electromagnetic fields, which naturally emanate a very short distance from humans.

That's really interesting.... try using just psi... from a distance it's close enough to eletromagnetic (shares many properties) that it might work.

well, besides your mouse moving, you could use the hypothesis that humans only use 10% of our brains. and then you could say that if we only use that little who's to say that psionics/psychics aren't real? i know this isn't proof but it is a way to get skeptics to think outside the box. or, if they're die-hard christian, you could say "what about jesus? didn't he do miracles and claim to be the son of God? didn't people laugh at him and were skeptical of him? whose to say that we aren't what we say we are, and that we can do what we say we can do?"...at least this is my "proof" of psionics being real...

Except it isn't true--we use all of our brain, just not all at the same time. That stat has been widely misunderstood and misquoted.

i figured it was false, that's why i called it a hypothesis (and because i don't like being wrong lol) i think that gut feeling is good proof of psionics-its an accepted form of intuition, and it can be pretty amazing (in some conditions).
