    Science understands a lot more about the sun than you think it does.

    It is interesting to note that prior to the early 20th century, science had no explanation for the energy output of the sun.

    Scientists believed their lack of an explanation was due to ignorance of some energy producing process.​

    Nuclear fusion was discovered to be the process & is the source of hydrogen bomb energy. The physics of the the sun's energy is well understood.

    Anecdotes unsupported by rational eye witnesses are not evidence.

    Many folks have hallucinations.

    Some folks tell lies to support their cherished beliefs.

    Sorry for the double Post.

    Is there a way to delete it?

    No. The usual thing to do is edit one and replace it with [ DUPE ] (if it's still editable).

    One can also report it and ask to have it deleted, but I hate to bother the mod team for that.

    Consider what would be required for paranormal events to be able to occur.

    If we start with absolute fundamentals, we are speaking about sensitivity to waves and wavelengths, their collapse, and the "bings", those moments of cognition at quantum level. Penrose?

    The opposite of extraphysical reception is dementia, the gradual breakdown of sensory processes by the microtubules in the brain. Hameroff?.............................

    Think of witches as actors with the ability to present a false facade, acting on your empatic ability to merge with someone's emotions and behaviors.

    If that person draws you in and then misuses your empathic response, the result in your mind is often a violent repulsion and loathing. The best thing to do is avoid such emotional vampires.

    There are 5 types of emotional vampires.

    I have had the displeasure of meeting all 5 types at one time or another....

    Probably isn't much difference in ego-centric character of all 5 categories, except how the disease manifests itself in men and women. The specific emotional tool used to exploit others.

    Interesting!

    If you are really interested in this idea just do a search for the name Ms. Jan Price.

    Do me a favour and check when the last post was made, Dennis.
    This thread has been dead for 3 years.
    If you want to discuss this, make a new thread.
    Thread necromancy is bad manners.

    And metaphorically ripping off somebody's shirt and zapping them with electricity to get their heart going again could be considered bad manners as well...... but it often works.

    Sometimes a sub-forum can be brought back to vibrant life again....... (and whatever discussions are on the first page of discussions are the easiest way to see if there are a number of people there who might get interested in Parapsychology again in 2021. I read and listened to a lot of related information over these past three years ........ perhaps others in this discussion did as well)?!

    It does pay to check the last post date. It is easy to forget to do this I might add. I have been guilty of accidental thread necromancy a few times over the years.
    The main reason is that the member you are replying to and other members that have posted their replies to may no longer be active. ( may even be deceased given the average age of the active members lol)
    If you want to revive the topic you can do so by starting another thread topic with reference to the old thread.
    eg.
    Parapsychoogy is compatible with Physics (#2)
    "In a previous thread on this topic certain key points were raised....blah blah blah...."

    covid19 fortold !

    vampires did it !

    talking about parapsychology in todays world is like sitting in a cafe frequented by political aids senators congress people & such others and having a loud discussion with a friend about anthrax and jeff bezos & dual identity verification systems & public hygiene habits

    it is highly unlikely to end well regardless of any level of humour sanity or liberal pretext

    Thank you for that very constructive advice.....
    many boards would prefer that a reply be posted into an existing thread if possible but I guess the
    obvious exception to that rule would be if the discussion is too old.
