Loquaciousness

The misuse of the word "fact" annoys me

I have finally got round to reading the copy of Paranormal Review that I am sent as a member of SPR. Anyway, in it is a very interesting article by Ron Pearson and the concept of crowd prediction. The idea is that when enough people try and predict something, like the weight of an ox, or the amount of jelly beans in a jar, and you average out their predictions, you will get a result that is very close to the right answer.
To learn more and to take part in a crowd prediction experiment go to

Pearson's work was based on his theory that consciousness was a sub-quantum phenomenon. This is described in the following 1997 article:

Ronald Pearson. "Frontier Perspectives", Journal of the Center for Frontier Sciences at Temple University. Spring/Summer 1997, Volume 6, Number 2, ISBN: 1062-4767.

This article is available at:
