My Uncle Ping used to be what is called a luck breaker at the craps tables in the Flamingo. I don't know if it was 6ft 6" inches of bald scarred serious looking person or the fact that he could affect dice. He always claimed that he could make them land anyway he wanted them too. He demonstrated a lot of times when I was a teenager and was really good at knowing which ones would come up. This was with other people throwing the dice and bringing their own dice. I don't know if the new modernized casinos do this anymore but I doubt they would quit it if it worked.

~~--------ArchivedPostFollows_Yahoo-PJRV_group-------------------------------- Scientists testing psychics' powers to predict the future Posted By: Mike F. Date: Sunday, 21 July 2002, at 7:28 a.m. Scientists testing psychics' powers to predict the future Psychics are taking part in an experiment to find out if some people really can predict the future. Edinburgh University researchers are testing 140 volunteers who claim they've had psychic experiences. Scotland on Sunday says they'll be asked to visualise a picture on a random postcard before it is sent to their home. Dr Fiona Steinkamp of the university's Koestler Parapsychology Unit said: "At the moment, we are trying to find out if people can actually get an impression of the future. "If this study proves successful, it would mean we'd be able to predict disasters such as plane crashes and accidents. You might even be able to win the Lotto." Volunteers will be isolated and have to listen to white noise for 15 minutes while trying to visualise a picture that will be sent to them in the post. The fuzzy noise is used to stop the volunteers being distracted. They will then be shown four pictures and will be asked to choose the one that most closely resembles the vision they had. Two days later, a picture will be picked randomly with the help of a computer and it will be sent to their homes. Dr Steinkamp admits there is an element of chance to the experiment. "What we need is a significant number of volunteers to pick the correct picture before we can eliminate the possibility of chance," she said. David Concar, deputy editor of New Scientist magazine, told the paper: "If we, as a species, really could do this, we would surely know about it by now. There is no way this study can impose on us an ability that we simply do not have."

Fiona was chairman of the Parapsychological Association Annual Convention a couple years ago, she's a Ph.D. now. She's had a page on Parapsychology Links (pro and con) for many years (science based stuff mostly). Koestler at this point is doing the bulk of legit psi research in the Western world. I can't imagine star gate blocking this post though, it is innocuous, and their moderation is very relaxed compared to mine! -- And this isn't experiential (exactly) but I make exceptions for science. -- PJ Reply | Forward

Very respectable and professional researcher. >Scotland on Sunday says they'll be asked to visualise a picture on a >random postcard before it is sent to their home. The study will probably show nominal results, very close to chance if the post card selection is made after the predictive session, because it will deal with a still-random future. If the post card selection is made before the predictive session, the future will be set and scores will more than likely be much higher. I say "probably" and "more than likely" because the fact that people say they have had a psychic event some tine in their lives doesn't mean they have, and it certainly doesn't mean that they are ready for prime-time laboratory studies, by any means. Don't look for them to immediately go out and "win the lottery". Another person and I spent last week in casinos in Nevada doing a study on short-term prediction of pseudo-random futures. I say "pseudo-random" because we got a thorough education by one of the top dealerst, who showed us that no casino game (with the exception of craps, he says) is free of "controlling influence" by the dealer, and showed us how to know when the dealer will use his/her "controlling influence", how to spot it, and how to predict (logically) what it will be. But, for the times when the dealer leaves the game to chance, we came up with some very interesting facts and a very surprising technique which indicate that the future might be predicted with a very high degree of probability in ultra-short-term predictions. From these findings, we devised a tentative (have to thoroughly test it first) training plan to sensitize a person under ultra-short-term conditions and, as the person becomes more and more sensitive to future signals, lengthen the prediction time until a threshold is reached, if one exists. We also conducted a short test series of "prediction plus influence" trials which also seemed to indicate there is also something worth looking into along those lines. Hopefully, there will be time to do some more in-depth studies of what we found.

What were your results that worked? Was there a difference if you wagered money?? What was the method you used? Best Regards, Bill
