What did James Randi say about Uri Geller .. If he's using his mind to bend spoons, he's doing it the hard way?

I'll bet you didn't read the article before you posted.

"The computer had a high success rate in telling which of three short films the subjects were thinking about."
"The machine recorded a 45 per cent success rate - significantly higher than would have been expected through chance alone"
Let's see .. the computer was programmed to look for recurring patterns in subjects who were attempting to recall specific scenes, and then, guess which 1 of 3 recurring patterns it recognized, which it did with a success rate of 12% above chance. Gosh, almost like mind reading .. except the computer doesn't know what was in the subject's mind .. it was just looking for recurring electrical patterns and guessing.
It looks like it would make a perfect replacement for The Clapper (Clap on! Clap off! The clapper!). But the person will have to wear a wire bathing cap.

You claim that it is a guess is wrong. Continuing to show your lack of understand is a wee tiresome.

When it gets to be 100% accurate, then you can say it's not guessing. 12% above random is what we call an educated guess.

Too bad you don't understand what is done in these tests. Maybe someday you will understand science.

Feel free to explain it, if you think you know what you're talking about.

It has been explained. It's the comprehension part I can't help you with.

Ok, so let a science blog explain it.http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/80bea ... your-mind/
"While that’s impressive, it’s not foolproof “mind-reading”—yet. The computer program was not good enough to predict which film a person was thinking about every time. With three films to choose from, a blind guess would be right 33% of the time on average. The computer predicted the right film 40-45% of the time. Also, Maguire says, they can’t be sure what they’re looking at in these brain patterns from their small sample—whether the people are remembering the setting of the movie, the action, or something else."
so .. um .. yeah .. they have no idea what's happening. It's guesswork. And it isn't mind reading at all, just brainwave tricks.

Nostradamus, your science and reading comprehension suck. This is like the third time you've been wrong about something.
