I can levitate. I kid you not. But not in front of anybody, because the mere presence of others will affect my concentration. But just trust that I can, although it is unfalsifiable.

Now let's have an intelligent discussion about this ability of mine.

I do agree with him/her in some respects.

A lot of people with PhDs are very overrated (especially when titles really matter.)

Of course they are. That doesn't make the unbelievably stupid things that ry_goody says in his threads any more valid, however. Hexagon worship, for christs sake

I never said that it did. I am just stating that the majority of PhDs are given out for completing tasks for low wages. Unfortunately, not for having any philosophical impact on a particular field.

I know you understood what I said. Your not as stupid as you'd like to humor other people with.

Emoto and rice experiments aside. The current scientific method cannot account for human consciousness itself as a variable component in experimental research. Certain truths of our reality will only be able to undergo experimentation and be proven by secluded confined groups of people that share similar conscious predispositions, and such experiments will not be able to be replicated in any other way unless the exact conscious predisposition can be replicated.

Anyone who wants to use the rice experiment to affirm what they already know as true can do so. This is not about just watching someone else.

This is just a 'story'. To assert that everyone who did this experiment did so in such an uncontrolled manner is really silly. I would not doubt that some people may have made such a mistake in their setup, but to assume everyone? Quite silly I think. There are videos out there of people showing how they put the rice into the containers, without mistakes, and getting the expected results.

But besides all that, this experiment is designed in such a way that YOU can do it yourself, how you deem 'proper'. However if you wish to go that route, please read my post up above to Vendetta, which was more a general message to everyone adressing the full scope of what exactly we are dealing with here. As doing this experiment is not just a simple prove or prove wrong. Because when doing this experiment, your very consciousness is a variable component in it. Anyone who intends to disprove this experiment I believe will disprove it just by their intent to do so. So before you even try the expiriment, do you really want to see? Do you really? Or do you just want 'verify' it, 'prove it wrong', because if so then you already have done so. I can tell you before you even begin, with that intent behind it, it will not work.
I'm not attempting to disprove anything.

I'm just saying that if you're conducting an experiment, be fully aware of any potential influences on it (like the few that I mentioned) and take those into account when you're doing your work. If you don't, you could end up with error in your results, and come to incorrect conclusions as a result.

The rice experiment is a neat trial of unconscious bias. You want a certain result, and happen to get it when you don't rigorously control for experimental error. As your controls get more and more rigorous (the "energy to prove"), the results stop occurring. Morons will interpret this as somehow having to do with your personal energy, rather than simply removing the unconscious biases that created the result in the first place.

Human consciousness is not a "variable component in experimental research", aside from cognitive biases that Gibby has alluded to above.
