Telephone Telepathy

British scientists were angered about silly "research" being presented a national convention. Well, most of what passes as scientific dogma today was yesterdays derided fantasy. Scientists are always slow on the uptake, ironically.

The research in question examines the mind's affect on it's external environment and the mind's ability to pick up information beyond the five senses. Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and writer of the book The Sense of Being Stared At, presented about the ability to predict a phone caller at random. His results are interesting. Hopefully the skeptics will try to replicate his trials to either debunk it or examine it further.

While mechanists and reductionists have problems with this type of research, I think it's the most important research going. The future of this world is controlling information--via information substances (hormones are information substances, for example), via bits through the internet and other technology.
