Question Dowsing an object hidden under 1 out of 50 envelopes by discarding one att?

I did a test where I had to remove, out of 50 envelopes (1 card hidden underneath on of them), 49 discarded (one after the other), no errors, only the one with the card underneath it still left (which was supposed to happen using my psi, which it did). Is this a natural chance, or did I really use my psi very good that time? I've practised about 3 months beforehand (so this being about 3 months after my first time using psi) using plain cards using sets of 10 instead of 50 (same principle, but finding the (1 black) joker out of the other (9 red) cards).

Maybe. The snag with this sort of experiment is that there are visual cues in envelope heights and similar, which cast a minor shadow.

If you really want to show yourself what you can do, try putting the cards in envelopes and shuffling them. Then sorting them without opening the envelopes until you are done. That way all the choices are visually identical.

There are some video of the Uri Geller testing from SRI back in the 70s. A test that isn't too different to what you were doing (but not limited to playing cards).
Beware virii that hide in signatures. Nasty, nasty hackers out there. Usually they appear in Personal Messages, not on a forum.

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.
