I have a Proposition for you /x/philes. I know most things on these god forsaken threads are bait or rps. But i know for a fact some of us do believe in the paranormal (even if you are a skeptic, such as i). My proposition is to create some sort of scientific research on these paranormal occurences, thus not seeming like fools. All in all, i suggest we find some way to show the existence of certain paranormal happenings such as psychic powers. General lets question shit thread.
Dude, research needs time. Not money. At least not the things we will doin research about. We arent trying to find the cure for cancer. We are simply observing paranormal occurences and documenting them. Also making notes and shit like that.
okay but I don't know about anything paranormal around here, I'll need about 5000 bucks to fly around looking for them, also a nice laptop for "documenting" them, certainly not for watching anime porn :^)
I have more than enough thirst, that's why I'm going to college, with you know, equipped labs and faculties while paying me scholarship, if you can't provide anything close to that then fuck off with your "scientific research"
This. Easier said than done though.
The most obvious method would be to do a massive meta-study looking at various paranormal investigations and looking for similarities in the occurences. Specifically, for "triggers" that are present before the majority of certain paranormal events. If we can find a way to trigger these events with a fair degree of regularity, then we could get the attention of mainstream science. Only problem is sifting through the shitlord hoaxers so they don't fuck up the data, which is gonna be near impossible.
Next best thing would be to amass inexplicable phenomena captured on video/audio, which many, many people are already doing but, once again, thanks to the prevelance of hoaxers makes it way too easy to write off the few pieces of unexplained evidence as fakes.
Mid-series Ghost Adventures was actually doing a really good job at this imo because they always took as much data as they could with things like air temp and emf, while constantly trying new equipment to see what works and what doesn't, along with the hours of genuinely spooky footage and audio. Sadly it's hard to take anything they do seriously nowadays, due in part to obvious acting and admitting that they have started making up evidence for some of the "slower" investigations.
TL;DR hoaxers are robbing us of a potentially brand new branch of science.
College offers no actual research other than that which is said to be worthwhile. Also, im in college. Sorry for not asking you to pay so you can think. And i do have equipment but its personal equipment.
That would be more straightforward, but much, much more tedious. Just sifting through the millions of "psychics" who claim to be the real deal is going to be exceedingly time consuming and difficult. We'll be working with actual people, which means they are going to have to be tracked down and then convinced to participate. Harry Houdini famously challenged the world to show him psychics/clairevoyants exist, and nobody was ever able to, and he was a global celebrity with millions of dollars at his disposal.
I love the the idea OP, but if we are seriously going to attempt this we have to get the logistics down before we try anything.
And I can tell who's a lowlife NEET with nothing better to do than shitpost from his mom's basement all day and argue with internet strangers for absolutely no reason other than the sake of arguing.
I wouldn't call this arguing, it's just a retarded thread so I'm telling you that you're a retard
just consider this op could just get 3-4 of his mates and do this but no he comes to some shitty website to look for people who most likely live far as fuck, which just proves zero social, leading or financial qualities but you'll still act like some condescending faggot about making a "scientific research group" that'll never happen anyways because you're all lazy poor niggers, I could sugarcoat it but yeah, fuck off
I'm fully aware of this, except I'm not a complete shithead about it. I'm telling OP it's a great idea but would require a fuckton of work and coordination to pull off.
Maybe if your dad didn't beat the shit out of you so much you wouldn't have turned out such an insufferable pile of anger and hatred.
at first I did it in a jesting manner too, pointing out that it'd need a lot of money and skilled people so just forget it and you just went "hurrhurr ur a troll" so yeah, fucking go kill yourself nigger before you wonder why someone get's pissed off at your shit
