Transcript of "Siblings and esp"

  1. 1. Do siblings choose the same thing by using ESP and does distance affectthe result? Cameron Knight
  2. 2.  I am a sibling I feel that I can predict what my brothers will choose It is quite an interesting topic
  3. 3. Research:•A lot of people have researchedsimilar topics•For example, there were twotwins separated at birth. They hadthe same occupation, the sameglasses, the same interests, theysame side they put their key ringon, even the same way of holdinga can•Even the military has researchedESP on the battlefield•Although it would be ideal to usetwins I am going to use siblingsfor my tests because it is too hardto get multiple pairs of twins.
  4. 4.  If distance won’t have any affect and the similarities of what they choose is completely random then as far as we know ESP is not possible
  5. 5.  Yellow Square Red Triangle Two rooms Three siblings Three non-siblings
  6. 6. 1. Have a pair of siblings sit back to back and have them choose the triangle or square, but don’t let them see what the other chooses2. Record the results3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 five times4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 with a separate pair of siblings5. Do the same as steps 1 through 3 but put the siblings in two different rooms instead of next to each other6. Repeat step 4 with a separate pair of siblings7. Repeat all steps but substitute siblings with non- siblings
  7. 7. The two choices First test (back to back)Making thechoices Second test (with wall between)

  9. 9. My hypothesis, that there is no such thing as sibling ESP, wasproven. In the siblings with the wall the percentage lowered, but in the non-siblings the wall raised the percentage. Overall the siblings did do betterat choosing the same percentage wise. The trends in siblings suggested that because they are so similarthat maybe they have the same favorite color and they chose based ontheir favorite color. If ESP was true then the wall would have brought itdown but it just seemed to randomize the results One of the things that can be improved in my experiment is that Ihad too few data points. This data links to the outside world because it "busts" the myth thatsibling ESP is common. This suggests that the military’s research intoESP may prove fruitless.
