First, my introduction since this is my first post:
While I'm not really UFO's or "conspiracy theories"(a phrase I hate) guy I do insist on always knowing a good amount about the theories are that
are out there so I can make an informed decision. Otherwise I'm just allowing the government and average people (who tend to be stupid from watching
TV shows all day) to tell me what to think and that isn't right. Governments lie all the time as not only a matter of policy but as a systematic way
of existence. And as for average people, they regularly believe exactly what they want to which leads them to be uninformed idiots in many
cases. And they furthermore allow the government to tell them what to believe because they are "the most trustworthy organization there is besides
the churches". Not to be too hard on them though, they are not all that stupid, they just don't care as much as the truth as I do... about being
able to believe something with far greater certainty. Because in fact their primary concern is entertaining themselves and I can't be too hard on
them for that because that is what makes them happy. They choose to balance away researching the truth (which to them is boring) for having more hours
of TV shows to watch... and whether that makes them "idiots" really is debatable. Maybe I'm the idiot for not just shutting up and doing as I'm
told without thinking. Of course I don't think so or I wouldn't be here.
Now, what I came here to say:
One theory advocated on this website on occassion is the Law of Attraction, which I explain a bit about in my first post at blog.civilchallenger.com
(hopefully I'm allowed to plug my own blog) if you are not familiar with it. The alleged law is basically that if one regularly visualizes something
to happen, it will happen, whether they want it to or not. So how to test this thoery scientifically? I don't know exactly but my idea is:
Have a group of people visualize something that is possible but only has a chance of occuring even if one wants the event to happen. They are to
visualize something that they want but requires external factors for delivery. For example, perhaps the event could be a highly attractive person who
is a total stranger knock on their door... wearing facy clothes and offering a great smile upon contact.
So there could be several groups in the experiment. One group wants one thing... another group wants something else. These should be things that
anyone would remember if they did happen to them. Then at the end of the experiment, we can cross-check what has happened with the different groups.
If the group who wanted their workplace to feed them a ton of chocolate candy was the one who ended up getting the attractive guy or girl knocking on
the door, that will be considered a failure for the law of attraction (though technically it could have just worked but only for other people, but the
whole point is that its supposed to work for the person visualizing it).
Please respond if you have any ideas on the best way to test this scientifically or would like to otherwise participate.
The interesting thing about the law of attraction is it works with both negative and positive things. So if you visualize something bad happening
regularly, bad things will happen to you regularly. We could even have one of the groups visualize something painful if they would actually want to do
