Mental-Telepathy & the Fifth-Dimension.
Many years ago, as research for a book I was writing [ and still am ], I needed to find some mechanism for transmission that science had so far failed to identify. [ skeptics please leave now ]
To this end, I studied the techniques that might be conducive to a simple telepathic-exchange. Now, I'm just an ordinary Joe, without any hint of psychic-power and wasn't really expecting a result anyway. The experiment was basically to read the card selected from a pack of 52 as seen through other eyes. Won't go into the gory details [ unless by public-demand ], but what was supposed to have a one-in-52 probability of success, turned out to be far less likely. Think of it like this - If you were given a multiple-choice question, didn't like any of the answers and added your own 'choices', what would be the odds that you were right? In this case, I was. The experiment was not repeated successfully [ I know what you're thinking ], with that test-of-one being more than sufficient for my needs.
Bottom-line: This little-black-duck didn't need any more convincing, and I had a solid foundation for the rest of my theories.
I was wondering if anyone else has had practical, non-religious experiences involving this phenomena.
[ Footnote: Several years after the episode, a bunch of us formed "The Polter-Guys" - a small club dedicated to seeking out the paranormal. We shut done after it all got a bit too real. ]

"I was so moved when I saw the cells stir," said 90-year-old study co-author Akira Iritani. "I'd been hoping for this for 20 years."
- The team managed to stimulate nucleus-like structures to perform some biological processes, but not cell division.
- Unless better technology and DNA samples emerge in the future, it's unlikely that scientists will be able to clone a woolly mammoth.
- Still, studying the DNA of woolly mammoths provides valuable insights into the genetic adaptations that allowed them to survive in unique environments.
An MIT study predicts when artificial intelligence will take over for humans in different occupations.
While technology develops at exponential speed, transforming how we go about our everyday tasks and extending our lives, it also offers much to worry about. In particular, many top minds think that automation will cost humans their employment, with up to 47% of all jobs gone in the next 25 years. And chances are, this number could be even higher and the massive job loss will come earlier.
The blood of horseshoe crabs is harvested on a massive scale in order to retrieve a cell critical to medical research. However, recent innovations might make this practice obsolete.
- Horseshoe crabs' blue blood is so valuable that a quart of it can be sold for $15,000.
- This is because it contains a molecule that is crucial to the medical research community.
- Today, however, new innovations have resulted in a synthetic substitute that may end the practice of farming horseshoe crabs for their blood.
