The history and reason for the above challenge is that several teens and on 20 yr old tried to pass of Science (thermodynamics) off as "Psi" - when it was exposed - they the Pin (Psi) Wheel believers got a tad 'pissed off'. They were certain the Pin Wheel could validate Telekinetic abilities. Well in order for that to happen, they would have to remove any and all science cause/effect.
Then I was asked back in late Nov 2006, what it would take to create a valid Pin Wheel demo to prove T/K - thus the Challenge. There was one attempt that failed because they found in order to pull of their scam - they had to cut serious corners in the established and agreed upon protocols. They not only failed - they finally admitted what everyone knew - it was a scam. They called it a "social experiment". To rationalize a great number of post that were lies.
So the challenge was set - that IF someone wanted to use the Pin Wheel to validate T/K - these are the steps that would be needed to assure no illusion, tricks, photo editing and such were at play. Something YouTube and Google Video are flooded with. But nothing that even comes close to being credible or valid proof of T/K.
Jjbreen, you are quite condescending and insulting. I honestly did not expect you to respond to my thread with an Ad-Hominae, which I do believe is in voilation of one of the guildelines for this forum. IMHO the contest is silly if not trivial, it does nothing to contribute to friendly and candid discussions about the various topics presented in UM. I thought that this was a forum that sought only to explore if not raise our understanding of the phenominas that are prevailant in society and until recently have taken center stage as part of our evolutionary process. So far all I have gathered are a number of requests for help by skeptics and non-believers followed by "off-the-cuff", slightly educated responses with little to no research at all by a majority of the respondents here in middle to senior standing.
Your response Dark Lotus is greatly appreciated and is what I've come to expect from the people at UM.
