From the first page of the study:
"The term psi denotes anomalous processes of information or energy transfer that are
currently unexplained in terms of known physical or biological mechanisms. The term is purely
descriptive; it neither implies that such phenomena are paranormal nor connotes anything about
their underlying mechanisms."
As for your comparison of the significance of the slightly higher than average results to the effectiveness of condoms at preventing HIV, statistics can be easily manipulated to seem way more significant than they actually are by stating the results in a certain way. That seems to be the case here, since condoms have been found to be 90-95% effective at blocking HIV transmission, and 53.1 != 95[/quote ]
You really need to read better.
As to your first quote, where Bem defines the term Psi; He was trying to say that he was using it as a description of things that happened that are currently outside measurement of the realm of known science. He was trying to show that it wasn't science fact....yet. hmmmm let me think, where have people put forward wild outlandish theories that everyone thought was bullshit? "The earth is round, and travels around the sun" "Disease is caused by tiny microscopic organisms called bacteria" ..... Bem was trying to show that the psi results were not paranormal, but measurable and factual, but that we hadn't yet reached a way to explain how it worked yet.....effectively saying that the psi events of his study are not science fiction, but rather, they are yet to be explained science fact.
Once again read completely, and comprehend fully. If you read in context you will see that the article was speaking about the initial stages of discovery....in the beginning stages of study on, if a condom protects you from HIV, they got the same p value as condom researchers did when first studying the link *p value is NOT the efficacy percentage, when you see 95% effective, that number is got to by adding the p value with a number of other factors....a statistical math equation made after all factors have information for the values to be entered* In this beginning stage of discovery, it has shown to have the same p value, as the beginning stage of discovery of the connection between condom use and protection from HIV
It has been found that in the final moments of life, the human body manufactures a hefty dose of DMT. That's all the explanation I need for the "near death experience" phenomenon.What happens after we die? A lot of people claim to see beautiful things including a light after near-death experiences. It has been discovered that medically induced deep sleep could apparently also conjure these sort of visualizations. So if this is a working of the brain or something unexplainable, I could not say.
I have heard this before, though I have not seen it confirmed by any credible sources (just Joe Rogan). It is also hypothesized that DMT may play a role during REM sleep. However, having smoked about 6 grams worth of DMT in my lifetime (no tiny amount), I can tell you first hand that waking up in the morning feels nothing like coming off of DMT. That's too bad, too. It would save me a few bowls that I smoke every morning.It has been found that in the final moments of life, the human body manufactures a hefty dose of DMT.
