Okay, here's the new experiment:
On Wednesday, 08/03/05 (my birthday!) at 10:30 p.m. my time (EST; so if you're in Chicago, it will be 9:30 p.m., in Denver 8:30 p.m., etc.) I will focus on a picture placed in this frame:
(in case I run out of bandwidth there, here's an alternate page.
The picture has already been randomly selected, but I don't (consciously?) know what it is yet. I will focus on it for 30 minutes.
I figure this can be done a few different ways, depending on how things "work" for you-
1. Between now and then, focus on that upcoming event, and try to see what the picture will be. Or, you might unintentionally see the event (in a dream or something).
2. At the time I will be focusing on the picture, try to "tune in" to the event. This is what I think of as the "traditional" experimental model (Zener cards, etc.)
3. Focus your intent, to affect the selection of the picture. Since it's not from a known set of images like the Tarot, this is hard to conceptually wrap your mind around, but the universe is a strange place...
4. ??? You probably know how your mind works better than anyone else- if you have some other method, try that.
Whenever you get something, leave a comment to the RESULTS0801 post. Be sure to include the method you used. I have set up the post so the comments are screened and won't be visible until after the experiment is completed.
In the meantime, I'll be busy setting up the next event. Depending on how this one goes, we can always make adjustments to future experiments, so if you have any suggestions or other comments, feel free to leave them in the RESULTS post, too.
Since there seems to be something wrong with (or at least, I'm misunderstanding) the "screen comments" function, I'll set up a separate RESULTS post to put your comments to.
I set this post to screen All comments, but when I put up a test comment I was able to see it, even after logging out. Anybody know what I am doing wrong? What exactly does "screen" mean? I thought they wouldn't be visible until the owner (post? community?) approved them.
