EDIT: Forgot to mention what Psipog is. It’s widely regarded as the best site on “Psi”, an invisible energy like Ki, Chi, Prana, whatever. It is the largest propagator of the Psi Belief System.
Sean Connely was the creator of Psipog. After reading his Blog, alittleweird.com, his credibility began to wane a bit. His most recent Blog post that I remember was headlined I am Probably Insane. His only real posts on his Youtube account smlefo are politically-oriented and two of him using his “powers” to win $50 from the lottery.
Abruptly shutting down such a… fishy website (Psipog) on the grounds that it fulfilled its purpose didn’t help either. Majority of the people on the Psipog forum were DragonBall Z obsessed hopefuls between the ages of eleven and thirteen trying to assemble psiballs with the power of their minds. Therefore any hope of the forum itself constituting evidence is, in effect, shot to Hell. Even he said, in his reasons for closing the site, that he never had any success with Psi excluding Astral Projection.
The videos, the only remaining scrap of potential truth on the site, could have been easily, and I mean easily, faked. I, being an experienced Magician, could tell you that nothing in that section constitutes what could even be mistaken for evidence. Even they mention that the videos will not prove anything to anyone, just strengthen the hope that current believers have in Psi. I smell a hoax.
Of course, I always value Subjective Experience, but my only progress in this imaginary field, during the course of multiple months, was having my hands’ muscles freeze up while trying to make an energy ball. Bollocks, did that waste my time… PK Wheels prove nothing, they are entirely too sensitive to use them as grounds that you have Extrasensory powers.
Now I’m sure that there are things that lie beyond the scope of our senses, but Psi? As far as I’m concerned, it’s not one of them. Hate to be a stickler here, but I want evidence.
But Science doesn’t have the technology to detect it!
Call me back when it does, because until then, I’m not going to spend my valuable time on some Psychic things that most likely don’t exist.
The Conspiracy Theory thing:
That Scientists have already found it and don’t want people to know about it or something to that effect. It was fabricated to make Psi followers feel special, I suppose.
Those that believe that they did get results, it was likely a hallucination of sorts under hypnosis, and going under hypnosis is the only real byproduct of the commonly accepted steps to make a psiball. Misdirected attention, belief, expectation, it’s all there. I believe that Mr. Connely fits this bill. Didn’t seem like he was lying in his anecdotes, maybe he is simply insane like his blog post alluded to. Others may have simply been lying for attention, which shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Again, no offense intended to any, just putting my experience out there.
Uhh… Keep up the Sigilwork everyone.
