Interesting experiments. It sounds like they have some fine-tuning to do after which they will need to figure out how to scale things up.

@son_of_bob, I preferred to put in this topic the following recommendation based on the comment you made in https://discuss.actualism.online/t/spiritual-consciousness/508/54:
If you are not familiar with it, I think you will enjoy and benefit from Robert Matthews’ book “Chancing it” which, in addition to examine the p-values vs sigmas problem, analyzes the deeper underlying problems as well such as assuming normality, assuming independence, using regression inappropriately and, in general, frequentist/classical vs bayesian statistics and the erroneous conclusions, due to logical problems, of many of the papers that have used and still use the former.
Thanks @Miguel sounds interesting, I will add it to my wishlist.
It’s so apparent how we make our decisions out of hope. Wrong 16/17 times, but that one time there’s an accurate prediction, hope gets pumped up and everything continues. And of course it’s possible to hope without any evidence at all…
there still is a place in the record books for first person to become actually free via a poo plant!
Wow this is fascinating and hilarious too. Was telling my family there is new hope for mum lol.
The university I went to was famous for deriving string theory and noticed that they kept doing the same elaborate tweaking to their equations. I said isn’t it just totally hypothetical and make believe and the hostility I got from other students, lecturers and advisors was surprising. Like i became the anti string theory person.
