What started me off with this discussion about Super Powers was an article I read which purportedly tested psychic abilities and returned a result that suggested they were real. I want to discuss the idea of using science to test for psychic ability and the history of doing so that goes from Harry Houdini to the Amazing Randi to Carl Sagan to Penn Jillette.
I’ll also talk about the evidence presented by the original article and new studies using the same methodology.
It’s an interesting story and you might find it a worthwhile read tomorrow to alleviate some of your sorrows about the Missouri basketball upset. Sigh.
