Which is why I didn't post any arguments regarding whether the video was genuine or not. I simply asked for the significance of something that seems to take a remarkable amount of effort for very little return.
You...taped five hours of this?
Do you regard the clip you posted to be the best example in your collection?
In the unlikely event that you do think that might actually be the case, be aware that it is not going to take me five hours to make a movie comparison with footage like what was presented. However, regardless of the legitimacy, and I even went so far as to assume the legitimacy of the footage, I asked the question, "Then what?"...
And your response is, what now? Maybe you can do it, What if these things are real, What if you didn't debunk these things, Why don't you try it yourself, what if it works...then what would you do?
Did you notice that you said a whole bunch of stuff that had nothing to do with my comment and then just repeated my question back at me?
The thing about that is that, well, I'm not much of a psychic type of person. Even if I had the ability, my interest lies in academics. And, frankly, I don't have to have the ability in order to apply academics to the subject.
You'd think a moderator on this forum would actually be some gnarly spiritual dude.... but hey, just another meat suit on autopilot..... 16,000 posts.... damn, if only you put that sort of effort into your own inner development.....
Here is an interesting thought experiment for you:
Person X has 12 posts. All of these posts have been read by Person Y.
Person Y has 16,000 plus posts. There is a high probability that Person X has read...1 post from Person Y.
Person Y makes a somewhat dismissive comment regarding efficiency, but does allow the assumption of existence for the argument and asks what the next step is.
Person X makes declarative statements regarding Person Y, including unstated intentions, unsupported assumptions, personal assumptions (arguably followed by an ad hom), and a somewhat snide ending remark.
How much validity should we assign to Person X?
You don't believe that your video demonstrates a very inefficient method of energy control?
What knowledge of psychic abilities is supposed to required here? Is there some sort of data that will put this video into context?
Thank you for your advice, but I am content with the level of research that I have done, and I am content to let my beliefs be guided both by my life experience combined with rational skepticism and creative sense.
I would, however, like to hear your response to the actual question that I asked: Then what?
What is your next step? What do you intend to do with what you have?
