Observation On the website http://viscog.beckman.uiuc.edu/djs_lab/demos.html they have many videos that demonstrate the act of observation. Unfortunately I am not able to put the videos in this presentation due to copyright restrictions.
What do the videos signify? <ul><li>People pay attention to less than the full amount of stimuli most of the time. </li></ul>

Entanglement Theory <ul><li>Everything is interconnected. </li></ul>
Entanglement Theory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_entanglement <ul><li>1935 Albert Einstein, Boris Podolsky, & Nathan Rosen published findings on Quantum Entanglement. </li></ul><ul><li>Described pairs of “entangled” photons connected by a link. If you knew the polarization of one you could instantly infer the polarization of the other. </li></ul>
More Experiments http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delayed_choice_quantum_eraser <ul><li>Other experiments: “the quantum eraser experiment” and “delayed-choice quantum eraser” suggest that the past can even be shaped. </li></ul><ul><li>This was the two slit experiment extended to find out why observation changes the outcome. </li></ul>
More Experiments <ul><li>Imagine an Interstate highway that takes a northern path around a city, I-1000 North, and a southern path around the city, I-1000 South. While a car is north of the city it is clear that it has traveled by way of I-1000 North, but after its path merges with traffic from I-1000 South neither it nor any other car can be identified as having gone north or south of the city. </li></ul>
How is this related to the Paranormal? <ul><li>Everything is interconnected. </li></ul><ul><li>Everything in this world has a resonance. </li></ul><ul><li>Any one person can become connected to something and feel the vibrations of that other thing. </li></ul><ul><li>When you can resonate in tune with the other “thing” you can manipulate it in a positive way. </li></ul><ul><li>If you achieve dissonance you can influence it in a negative way. </li></ul><ul><li>In order to do this you need to be in tune with that which you are trying to change. </li></ul>
How is this related to the Paranormal? You do not need to understand how the effects of energy interacts with you or your surroundings in order to bring about effect. What you do need to know is that you want the effect to occur.
Positive Thought <ul><li>How can thought change the world around us? </li></ul>
Positive Thought http://projectsanctuary.com/main/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=58 “ Dr. Jeffry R. Palmer Ph.D. writes: In 1993 a study encouraged by one the world’s leading physicists was undertaken in Washington D.C to determine if focused meditation could have an effect on that city’s crime rate. The results were astonishing. During the weeks that several volunteers meditated, crime rates fell dramatically by 25 percent!”
