Do any scientists lend any credibility whatsoever to the study of Parapsychology any more? I've heard that there is still some research going on in some reputable institutions, like Duke and Princeton Universities, and others, that are still doing research in this area and even claim to have gotten some very small, but nevertheles positive, significant results. They talk about something called micro-PK where supposedly a person can influence events at a quantum level of the outcome of a random number generator through thought alone. And by applying meta-analysis (I think) to a large number of experiments they've seen some significant results. Much of this information I've seen about it has been on the internet, so how much can it be trusted, anyway? Do you know anything about these things? Could there possibly be any validity to it? It would be pretty interesting if it were for real. What do you think? Thanks.
