The Town Scryer is a mixed bag of humor, socio-political observations and ephemera from the perspective of a eclectic Pagan veteran of the counter-culture.

At Last! Scientific Proof of E.S.P.!

    Daryl Bem is about to publish a paper on his blind testing of one hundred student volunteers at Cornell University for precognitive ability. Each student attempted 36 trials at predicting which of two curtains would appear on a screen side by side. The students would attempt to predict which curtain of the two concealed a picture rather than a blank wall. Amazingly, the results showed that the students were successful in predicting the correct location a statistically significant percentage more often than the norm, but only when the hidden pictures were erotic in nature. Non-erotic pictures  produced predictably average results.

For more on the study see the following article at H+ magazine:

Here is a link to a pre-publication copy of the paper from the author's web site:
