  1. Bayesian Bouffant, FCD says:

    you kind of have to ask, “Do we believe psi is crap because it really is crap, or do we just not have the technology to detect or manipulate it?”

    Psi as previously depicted was actually crap. If you look into the physics of the human neural system and do some actual calculations as to frequencies, signal strength, size of antennae, etc. there is no way it could work. Psi as a purely biological phenomenon in animals like us just won’t work.

    You could save the concept of psi by adding some technology (brain implants, good old fashioned radio frequency transmission, etc.)
