Can remote viewing predict stock prices ?

Is it possible to see in to the future using only the human mind ? Image Credit: sxc.hu
A new experiment is set to test the effectiveness of remote viewing and precognitive dreaming.
The crowdfunded research effort, which aims to compare various unorthodox methods of predicting the stock market, is headed up by Professor Garret Moddel of the University of Colorado–Boulder and Dr. Julia Mossbridge of Northwestern University’s psychology department.

"A growing research literature, including our own work, suggests that humans have non-conscious access to information about upcoming events that should otherwise be unpredictable," they wrote.

The experiment will involve having volunteers use both remote viewing and precognitive dreaming techniques to see images in the future related to fluctuations in stock market prices.

To avoid biased guesswork a computer will be used to pick and display the relevant pictures.

The researchers believe that if successful their efforts could lead to the development of a reliable future-prediction mechanism which taps in to our ability to perceive future events.

"This experiment is a reminder to the scientific community that although we like to think we know what the laws of nature are, we are far from truly understanding time," they wrote.

"Regardless of the results of this experiment the reminder of our relative ignorance will spark research interest in the physics and the psychology of time."

The crowdfunding page for the project, which has a goal of $50,000, can be viewed - here.

I'd ask the sister question: Are all rich people remote viewers?

My wife is always right also. She says, "Am I right?" And I say, "Yes dear."

It all depends on how a "hit" is defined. In the remote viewing I've seen a remote viewer attempted to claim that rhythmic and musical was a perfect deion of a tornado. Will the test be set up so that anyone can see that the results are decidable? Will the test be set up so that the viewers cannot fall back on their usual excuses such as they happened to view an alternative universe?

I doubt a quantum computer could accurately predict,, as there are too many variables and we don't know all of them, for all we know when we have a bad crop of apples in a particular small farm in France, Apple shares dropp by 0.5%

Obviously, by simple chance and the usual spread of coincidences, one 'method' will be a clear winner. If they have enough methods, then chances are that the winner's performance will be impressive... to someone who doesn't understand statistics and probability. I'd like to see all the controls they use, the nature of the analysis they apply, and also the repeated tests that show (or not..) that there really is one winning method... Me, I'd say the method will probably be - having a good knowledge of the market.... BTW, I thought I recognised one of the names, and I did. Julia Mossbridge is a ... [More]

Not remotely possible. (couldn't resist) If this were possible, wouldn't investment companies have known the derivatives market was going to crash, and maybe not have needed to be saved from insolvency by the taxpayers a few years back?

Can a psychic give me winning lottery numbers?

Can a psychic give me winning lottery numbers? Ha! If they could, would you think that 1) they would share that info, or 2) more of them would actually be winning lotteries? No such thing as psychics, unless they actually enjoy tricking dumb people out of money instead of winning the big one. Guess if that's true, they couldn't be blamed for being lazy, could they?

I clicked on the crowd funding and it seems they cut their financial needs in half and now claim to be 105% funded at $26,000. I guess it became abundantly clear that the crowd was not going to pony up the 50K. Any money left over is going to be donated to the Seva foundation, which treats blindness. There are labs notes on some of the sites but all are restricted to donors.
