#2 (Part 1) glynis5799
Hello PJ and all,
Here is my mail to Liz after I had carried out Exp
#2 (again I have snipped
irrelevant parts and personal chat). Lizs session is underneath. I have also
attached the scan but I dont think those who read the mail on the Yahoo website
will be able to see it (?).

When I got your session for Experiment
#2 a few days ago I didnt open it, but
waited until I had more time. Also I wanted it to have an element of spontaneity
like the last one, so when I suddenly thought of it this evening I decided to do
it. This time I varied the procedure a bit by not looking at your session at
all until my husband had chosen a photograph. I asked him to go into another
room and find a picture. When he came back in he had a book which was open at a
page with a picture of a Neanderthal man&.well a guy dressed up as one anyway
:-). The book was a spin-off from a television documentary about Neanderthals,
and this must have been a still from it.
He (the guy dressed as a caveman) is shown standing in the open air (cant see
much background but it looks outside), holding a long pointed stick (spear). He
is dressed in fur and skins. It does not look cold, and the light looks natural
(However it may have been taken in some photographic studio somewhere.. so the
open-air and natural light are debatable, but it looks that way). I have
attached a really bad scan of the photo, sorry ;-).
Your session is below, so you can see how many really good matches I
got&:-)..but I wouldnt bother Liz, the correlations are so slight as to be
negligible. I have to say that this second experiment was a resounding MISS! In
fact it could not have been more wrong if I had actually tried to find a target
with completely different gestalts. LOL!
It could mean that this way of doing it doesnt work, but it is far too early
to tell and Id like to do it the same way at least a couple of times. The
obvious main difference to the last one is that I did not play much of a part at
all. As before you chose the session, but my husband made the decision about
the photograph. I just compared the two and am reporting back to you.

Here is a session that asked to describe 'Pine Gap'.
purpose is for the people
Includes a drawing of a circle divided into sections by straight lines and a
straight line extending out from the center. It looks like an umberella shape.
