Telepathy test: which number did I write?

Postby Michel H » 02 Apr 2013, 02:31

I invite you to participate in a telepathy test.

At about 7:48 p.m. on this Monday April 1 (Brussels, Belgium time), I wrote carefully one of the four numbers: "1", "2", "3", "4" on my sheet of paper, and I surrounded it with a circle. Then, I wrote it again twice.

I shall repeat this number from time to time during this test.

It was selected using this random number generator: http://www.random.org/integers/ .

I ask you to write it here (if you think you know it, even with a doubt). You may also answer "I don't know".

So, your answer should be one of the four numbers: "1", "2", "3", "4", or "I don't know".

I would also appreciate a little comment.

Please note that the number I wrote has no meaning, it was just produced by the generator.

Thank you for participating.

I say "4"... don't know why... I just focused on your post, tried to envision the circle, and that's the number I saw in the circle.

I don't know.

However, I have a friend who would know if you thought of a number and happened to be on the phone with them or somewhere nearby. The chances of some percentage of a random readership having this sort of ability are pretty hard to guess though, especially when you have no personal connection with them, there is very little for even a true psychic to go off. And the 'test' is no longer in the present.

I'm with DM, as 4 came into my head as well.

SydneyPSIder, as I mentioned in my initial post, I repeat my number from time to time.
I do these tests because I think that I am somewhat "special", that I have a tendency to communicate my thoughts to others through telepathy. I seek to confirm this hypothesis through online testing.

ah, cool. we're all getting '4' loud and clear then. the number keeps popping up on TV and radio also I've noticed lately.

in my experience with someone who could 'read' thoughts of people she knew or who were nearby, I'm not sure it's possible for ordinary people to just tune in to someone on the other side of the world who says they're projecting. how do your projections normally work? do you have to know the other person, be in the same room, etc? shouldn't you start small, with say a couple of people in the next door room? then confidently go straight for the amazing randi's $1M prize...

SydneyPSIder, I have been doing telepathy tests for a long time, and I didn't find that I necessarily got better results with people who are in the same room, or on the phone with me.
In addition, I live alone, so it's actually easier for me to do some online testing, over the Internet, than doing a "same room" test.
Telepathy does not seem to depend strongly upon the distance between the "sender" and the "receiver". I invite you to listen to Rupert Sheldrake talking about that in this video: http://lumenznetworks.com/sheldrake/watch/what-is-the-the-distance-for-communicating-through-telepathy (see also [the abstract of] this article: http://www.sheldrake.org/Articles&Papers/papers/telepathy/pdf/experiment_tests.pdf).

In my experience with a telepath, distance didn't seem to matter so much, I agree. She had to know you somehow though in order to make a connection. However, it was independent of geography and distance somehow. Not sure of the 'speed' of a signal either, it was either something like light speed, or who knows, faster? Effectively instantaneous? This was from 12,000 miles away at times.

On the other hand, a fortune telling psychic I knew who got accurate results said it was harder over the phone than in person. So people's mileage will vary.

Thank you for your answers and comments.
The number to guess was actually "3". Unfortunately, nobody answered this number (the three persons who answered one of the four numbers for the test, drastikmeazures, NinjaPuppy and SydneyPSIder all answered "4").
I also would like to add that I didn't find any of the three answers to be really credible.

lol, dear oh dear. maybe better luck next time -- although I supplied numerous obvious reasons why your 'experiment' wouldn't work and it would not provide any credible stats based on your methodological approach even if it somehow did work.

Please note that none of the skeptics on this board participated in the "test," probably for much of the same reasons you mentioned above.

This test is a long standing joke for starters. I trained as a psychic and I would not entertain such a test. In my experience telepathy is the result of direct spiritual contact not the reception of a faint thought transmitted from thousands of miles away. It takes an agreement and purpose to generate a telepathic impulse in the mind. If you don't believe me then why do we not experience the simultaneous thoughts of billions of people who like me are thinking right now? The answer is due to the ontological gap and a lack of agreement. I do not exist in the reality of billions of people. I do not exist in your reality outside of the words you see here in print. How can I receive telepathic communication in the midst of billions of thoughts? You can't unless it is directly received in the mind.

Thus to expect that a long distance PSI test is going to produce testable value is erroneous. I won't even partake in such follies as there are people like Charles Tart and Dean Radin who have taken PSI to scientific levels. I am not completely convinced by the data thus far outside of what has been established as credible by those who have done the research. In other words I have yet to influence dice, matter, or anything that is directly connected to physical nature with thought outside of mental influence of animate life forms within a small sphere surrounding my presence.

Likewise there is no guarantee that '3' is the number you transmitted or established to test with. Skeptics like to play both sides of the sword. If you get it right it's a coincidence or the effect of chance and if you don't you aren't credible, you failed, you didn't score a hit.

So you can have a psychic hit that is dead on but it is dismissed when a miss is registered. That my friends is how skeptics control their audience and of course the audience having even less experience than the skeptic who has little to none is prone to believing what ever the skeptic says because he or she is aligned with science, the new god for intellectuals. Now don't get me wrong science is a fantastic advance of human capability but it pales in comparison to the miracle called life which does not require science in order to function.

Agreed. Well put.

I got a very strong "4". It's rare that such a strong impression occurs in my mind.
