It sounds like free_form's version of a claim might be: "I can only do it when nobody is watching or photographing me".

I can do a lot of things when nobody's watching me. But if I want them to believe I actually did it, I have to let them watch me do it.

I don't think it's as unreasonable as free_form does, to be watched and photographed while supposedly doing something amazing, for a million dollar prize. It's just making excuses to say they can't do it while being watched.

Um, I checked him out. He's taking alot of flak right now from various folk that don't see him the same way you do, Wu.

I feel a little sorry for him, as you can tell he has gotten his feelings hurt by some of the criticism on his youtube channel. One of his responses to this criticism is found in Darryl's statement on one of the videos:

"It just struck me as somewhat unfair, that I have to bear the consequences of everyone who's tried to make a quick buck swindling people with paranormal powers or whatever."

I don't discount TK, but I don't find Sloan to be either the great critical thinker you profess, Wu, nor convincing with his bits of tinfoil in highly uncontrolled experiments.

Darryl is rather pissy right now at the whole Randi Challenge. I don't care for Randi these days, the way I used to either, but it's OBVIOUS that Darryl is afraid of having to attempt to spin the tinfoil under controlled and/or vacuum conditions.

He and WU777 here, would still appreciate you buying the book though...ahem.


I would visit the pub with Darryl and have fun I'm sure. Even though he is confused, he's seems allright. I'd buy him drinks, lots, but I'll pass on his book.

p.s. - Just googled Winston Wu to see what his qualifications as a book reviewer might be and...ah nevermind lol:

Of course he takes some flak. Anyone who puts himself out there does. It goes with the territory. The true warriors and truth seekers don't care about criticism though. People who live for truth do not care what others think or judge themselves by others opinions.

Nevertheless, keep in mind that Darryl has a ton of fans and admirers too. He has thousands of subscribers in his YouTube channel:

Btw, I have great qualifications as a book reviewer. My work is highly praised as well. See here for lots of proof, most of which is sourced.

I also have ten unique accomplishments under my belt. See here for a list of them.

Check out Darryl's intro about telekinesis, where he gets into deep points about the subconscious mind and unseen things, then says that telekinesis is not paranormal, just some force we don't understand. This guy seems very intelligent and sensible. He says that you gotta program the subconscious mind with your intentions first.

www.youtube.com...

Then check out his telekinesis demonstration under a glass bowl, after 9 months of practice.

www.youtube.com...

Impressive huh? It moves slowly but surely, under the glass bowl.

Here is a Psi manual that Darryl recommends:

www.psipog.net...

Here are his deep thoughts about why telekinesis works, and is merely a natural phenomena we don't understand yet, hence he doesn't believe in the word "paranormal".

Here is the description and some inspiring reviews of Darryl Sloan's brilliant book "Reality Check". I'm sure they will motivate you to check out this must read book for truth seekers. I gotta warn you though, once you start reading it, it will be VERY hard to put it down



darrylsloan.wordpress.com...


‘Reality Check’

An exploration beneath the surface of the beliefs and assumptions that shape our lives.

A book by Darryl Sloan (2009)

What is the true underlying nature of reality? What is my place in it? Does my life have meaning, or am I a cosmic accident? Are the answers to these questions found in religion, or is science where the real enlightenment lies? Is it even possible to know? In this bewildering world of differing beliefs, what chance do I have of finding any genuine truth? And where do I even begin?

With two words: Question everything.


Reviews

“If you find yourself recoiling at mention of any of these issues – telekinesis, unified consciousness, ‘disproving’ Christianity – then you are the perfect candidate to read this book. You may be equally convinced of your worldview after reading, but extraordinary beliefs require an extraordinary investigation, and that concept permeates this book. Sloan does not enter into these ideas lightly. What is so effective is that he’s never overly credulous about far-out claims, nor overly dismissive of mainstream dogma, which is why the book is so useful as a primer on esoteric spirituality.”
- Self-Publishing Review

“It is a thought-provoking masterpiece of balanced critical thinking and introspection on religion, secularism, spirituality, and the search for meaning, without any assumptions or preaching. In it, he describes the painstaking struggle he endured as he swung back and forth on a pendulum between Christian faith and disbelief, and how he eventually overcame it through the power of reason to begin his truth-seeking journey. The quality of thought in it is on a level I’ve rarely encountered.”
- ScepCop

Readers’ Feedback

“The chapter [on religion] itself is a compelling and rational dissection of organized religion and much more accessible to the layman than Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion because of the simple, straightforward way the evidence is presented (Dawkins does love his 50p words). As a fellow atheist (hear my bell clanging?) I identified with much of this chapter, but was also impressed by some of the historical and Biblical references that I was unfamiliar with. The author’s honesty about his doubts and personal experiences make this a very compelling read, and I can’t see how any rational mind could dispute the chain of logic that led him there. / Then we investigate our perception of the world and the part our consciousness plays in it. I don’t know how much of this I actually agree with but the theories posited are fascinating … They bounced around my head for days after reading them, which is some indication of how much there is to think about. Anything that stimulates the old grey cells to that degree has to have merit. / The author’s experiments into telekinesis are well documented and described with such enthusiasm that you will find yourself making up a psi-wheel and giving it a try. / Reality Check is a book that will invite discussion and stimulate thought, which is a rare accomplishment for any book.”
- Philip Henry (author), County Antrim

“I paid a life coach over a thousand dollars to explain to me over the course of five months what you explained (better) in a little less than seven chapters, and I’m not done reading.”
- YouTube user “qedlife”

“It said a lot that needed to be said. I hope it reaches many people and touches something deep within them, as it has myself. I applaud your work and feel that if more people could come to understand things as we have, there could be more peace in the world.”
- Quinton, USA

“I read the entire book in two sittings because I just didn’t want to put the book down. The concepts explored are very thought provoking, and the mix of theories and memoirs from Darryl’s life makes the book a much more enjoyable read than an academic paper covering the same principles. My only criticism is that occasionally the book feels a bit disjointed. Each chapter covers a separate issue, and while some of them have a tie in to the rest of the book, most don’t. Other than that, it was an amazing book.”
- Andrew

“I really enjoyed it a looot. It seems to me that most truth seekers out there are coming to very similar conclusions even though they pursuing different roads in getting there. On some passages reading the book felt like living again through my own experience on others I found new perspectives by looking at things your way.”
- Oliver, Germany

“Yesterday morning, I received your book through the post and I finished reading it around 8 hours later. I really enjoyed reading your book, since you have a similar mindset to what I have, but you explain the stuff to people a lot better than what I can. The people I’ve mentioned this kind of stuff to think I’m crazy, which I probably am.

Two days ago, I received a copy of Reality Check. I read the entire book in two sittings because I just didn’t want to put the book down.

The concepts explored are very thought provoking, and the mix of theories and memoir’s from Darryl’s life makes the book a much more enjoyable read than an academic paper covering the same principles.

My only criticism is that occasionally the book feels a bit disjointed. Each chapter covers a separate issue, and while some of them have a tie in to the rest of the book, most don’t.

Other than that, it was an amazing book.

Like most people who have commented here, I finished the book in rapid time, over the course of a quiet day in work I managed to get through it.

Darryl’s style of writing makes it a very enjoyable read regardless of the subject matter. Having read his first two novels and being an avid subscriber to his website I was keen to get a further insight on his thoughts and ideas.

Maybe that’s the reason for my only criticism, subscribers of his website may have encountered most of the information before.

Other than that, ‘Reality Check’ is an enjoyable , thought prevoking book. Don’t neccesarily agree with everything Darryl has to say as I don’t have any concrete belief system in place at all at the moment. Maybe now I should start to question everything as Darryl suggests!!! However, Darryl does pose a lot of questions about reality and his answers and theories do seem to make sense.

‘Reality Check’ has earned it’s place on the bookshelf with Darryl’s first two novels and I’m sure will be picked up for a re-read many times.

Here are some promo videos and readings from his book by Darryl himself. It makes so much sense even in the opening chapter, and immediately captivates your attention.

It is really so unnecessary to remark on someones looks in such a way, and especially so if you KNOW that the person in question might read it. Very low.


As for the "subject" himself, I am neutral. I know such abilities exist, but apart from that, I am- as said- neutral until I have seen more of this guy.
Indeed, though, the topic is very interesting, no question.


It's SO unnecessary to pretend that people don't judge based on appearance. In fact, it's disrespectful to the uglies. It's kind of like telling a disfigured person he/she has an equal chance of having a good sex life / marriage. I guess these pretensions are what holds society together though. Entertaining, and very, very low and inconsiderate - not short of a blatant lie in fact.

I am more interested in what makes you *know* that these abilities exist though.


Dude, this is a truth seeking site, not a hotornot site. His looks are irrelevant. He has had girlfriends before. He is not ugly, even if he is not your type


No one is saying that appearances don't matter, but they are not relevant to this discussion.

If you do the psi experiments yourself, with a truth seeking attitude and NONfixed belief system, then you will know too. I did the psi wheel thing years ago and confirmed it to be REAL. That's the best evidence, you proving it to yourself.

The more you watch Darryl though, the more you admire him. That's the kind of person he is.

I don't have time to watch over 100 videos and since you didn't provide any specific links I just picked one that had telekinesis in the title:



I can see after watching that (well the first half anyway, I couldn't finish, it's pretty boring) why he wouldn't go to Randi for a test, he says his telekinesis is not really controllable.

Out of all the things that Randi can test for, it seems like telekinesis should be one of the most straightforward. So if I did have telekinesis I would definitely take Randi's challenge.

And the OP does come on a little strong with the book promotion.


First, the majority of applicants for the Randi Challenge are not even contacted. Anyone can issue a challenge and not test people and claim it is unwon.

Second, the Challenge now only tests people who are media celebrities. So even if Darryl applied, he would not qualify under the new guidelines. Didn't you know? The announcement is on the JREF site.

Darryl is NOT boring at all. He is the farthest thing from it. I would NEVER watch anything boring.

I guess your taste must suck. Watch more of his videos and you'll see what a brilliant true skeptic he is.

That demonstration reminds me of my favorite childhood toy, the Crookes Radiometer:


en.wikipedia.org...

All that needs to spin is a light source, no telekinesis needed. And obviously there is a light source present in the demonstration.

The part he's spinning might be exhibiting some of the Crookes Radiometer effect. There are some ways the test could be redesigned to eliminate this possibility. Not sure if that's got anything to do with it but a better test is needed to eliminate this well known but poorly understood effect as a possibility.

You have a very interesting background, I was just referring to your site SCEPCOP earlier today, talking about pseudoskeptics. Nice site

After a brief look at your site the main thing that stood out to me was all the mentions of your Asian ethnicity. It honestly came across as a parody, almost as if your claim to fame and biggest achievement in life was being Asian....... but not really. I don't mean that to sound offensive, just making an observation on the links you provided, feedback if you will.

Getting onto the topic at hand I don't really believe his claims that his tests are controlled. Apart from the fact that turning a bowl upside down on a table doesn't make a vacuum I'd also suggest that unless a third party was conducting the test and this fellow was a participant/subject I can't see any test he does as being seen as anything less than completely flawed. He simply has to much self interest in the outcome of his tests.

As for the mans looks, I have to say I have no idea what relevance that has to whether he has telekinetic ability's or not and would also say that I must of missed when "average looking dude" became "for the love of god, avert your eyes". Must of been that time I blinked in 94'.

As far as I know, Randi's challenges requirements are ridiculous. Under the surveillance of tons of equipment, people (an audience, even), Randi staring down your neck, etc.. If one needed patience, silence and solitude to achieve the state they need to perform such 'feats', then they will certainly end up being a laughing stock and failing Randi's 'challenge'.


I am aware of the criticisms of Randi's challenge. However, I am also aware that the psi wheel WILL spin on it's own when covered with a bowl (video) or glass like that. The way to prevent that is to put plastelin/clay/play dough/etc around the base. In the end though, I agree with this poster:



So expecting someone to perform exactly what they claim to be able to do is ridiculous? The reason no one can pass his challenge is no one can demonstrate their ability under controlled conditions.


Anyway,



Of course he takes some flak. Anyone who puts himself out there does. It goes with the territory. The true warriors and truth seekers don't care about criticism though. People who live for truth do not care what others think or judge themselves by others opinions. Nevertheless, keep in mind that Darryl has a ton of fans and admirers too.

See here for a list of them. www.happierabroad.com...


You are clearly advertising at this point. "Everyone takes some flak" is not a defense. Sure, everyone who is a public figure is criticized, but that doesn't mean that everyone who is criticized is also praised. In the end, there are a lot of people who want to believe in paranormal powers - who doesn't want to live forever (at least in some way), solve their problems through easy means because they are too lazy to (or unable to) conventionally, etc.

I repeat - this guy has not said ONE intelligent, original thing, nor has he shown any proof of anything.




Dude, this is a truth seeking site, not a hotornot site. His looks are irrelevant. He has had girlfriends before. He is not ugly, even if he is not your type No one is saying that appearances don't matter, but they are not relevant to this discussion.

That's the best evidence, you proving it to yourself. The more you watch Darryl though, the more you admire him. That's the kind of person he is.


Being ugly or inferior in any way plays a huge role in the paronormal research world. Why? Because as I stated above, people who have something to make up for are generally drawn to it. Again, I have already stated that I have practiced the psi wheel for months, if not over a year. Also, you haven't confirmed # until you have done it under perfect conditions, completely eliminating the possibility of outside factors.

Also, the more I watch of Darryl, the more I realize how much of a waste of time it is.

Here are some deep thinking and philosophical musing videos from Darryl Sloan as examples of what I'm talking about. He makes many very good and well thought out points in them. You can tell by listening to him that not only is he very sincere and genuine, but very "awake and conscious" as well. This is the kind of person you can learn a lot from about how to think for yourself. Thus he is definitely worth listening to and why I recommend him, for you will benefit from it no doubt. He is definitely a rare find no doubt. Listen and you will see.

Just watched 3 of his videos. He hasn't said one original/new/interesting thing. He is ugly enough to need tk to distinguish himself though.

One more thing here - the psi wheel WILL move randomly under any bowl or glass like that. Unless you put plaster around the base, the air is still getting in - I know from experience. When I was a kid, I thought I had magical powers too, just so you don't take this vid too seriously:

edit on 2-12-2010 by avraell because: (no reason given)


It will not. I have never seen the wheel move under a glass bowl. Plus, you must have missed it, but he has many videos where he put the camera in front of the psi wheel, and let it go for days or hours, fast forwarding it 16X, and showed that the wheel DID NOT move by itself. He showed this in his latest video that I posted above.

You need to at least watch his videos before debating them. Sheesh.
