A little old now but you won't see much of this on Faux News

It's a 3 minute news report from Russian TV offering 2 perspectives on "auras" or biofields.

There was a HUGE thread on this in a UK tabloid, "The Daily Fail".

You think I don't know. Well, maybe you're wrong. Maybe I'm wrong.

But assuming you are always right always puts you in the wrong.

Because assume just makes an ass of u and me.

to tps or not tps

I get irritated by skepticism but I love skeptics. Skepticism is a philosophy and I only like philosophy when it inspires people to learn truth. Skeptics are awesome with questions and new answers to look for.

I recently learned all about logical fallacies in a class. Maybe 'begging the question' enough won't be a fallacy when used by someone with skepticism. Mysteriously every critic of what is labeled pseudo-science gets away with it like that onedin guy from the news blog.

I am a psionist and general pain-in-the-ass-to-understand. This humorously speaking and literal all too often. If I don't make sense, then this is your friendly reminder to tell me to be more intuitive.

It's like this - everywhere outside of the United States and the UK, parapsychology is explored by scientists.

Here, in the USUK combined intelligence enterprise (aka Capitalism Inc) scientists shun the field because they are frightened of what they might find. So only amateurs and enthusiasts get involved.

Parapsychology has been a part of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) for decades but if you do a search on parapsychology on their website, you will find just one hit.

This used to upset me but I've gotten used to the fact that the people ostebsibly in charge of these things have a bigger fear factor than I do.

It's difficult because such a topic is unpredictable, it tears through the fabrics of nature we're so very accustomed to. People just don't want to take that big of a step yet, it IS scary.

They know there's a spider in their room, but they don't know where, so instead of sleeping in comfort, they cling to their parent's arm. As much as they want to find it, they don't want to risk finding out how horrifying it is. The good news about this idea is that eventually someone ambitious or big enough will come along and try to resolve this.

Call my explanation simple, it still applies in my book. I wouldn't be here if I was afraid to explore these things.
