Yes, I am stating that research into paranormal mental powers such as telepathy, psychic abilities, and mind-over-matter, is in fact voodoo science or pathological science. Such may also fall under pseudoscience if the researcher is depending upon supernatural explanations. The key thing to realize is that when these researchers claim they have proven these abilities to be real they are talking about results that are so incredibly small beyond the statistical average that it's hard to rule out error or bias. I seriously doubt such a stance weakens my argument by making me appear uninformed. >There are physics experiments having to do with tunneling >effects, quantum entanglement, etc. that are also based on >statistical results.

There's absolutely no need to invoke quantum mechanics. Also, physicists would not be using terms like metaphysics with regards to science. >"Grays as cybernetic organisms" is an hypothesis to explain the >mechanism of the apparent telepathy, but some other mechanism >could do as well. Yes and it also is a possible explanation for the other mental abilities of the aliens. What is remarkable is that the technology of Brain-Computer Interface is capable of a wide- variety of expression and can be inferred to be the technology that is involved in other reported observations from abductees. An alternative hypothesis would be that the aliens are fully robotic and contain no organic systems in their bodies. I only slightly touched on this. The reason why I didn't address it outright is because it would disprove or significantly modify certain aspects of the abduction phenomenon and I feared the line of reasoning would be to complex for many to follow, or to complex for me to properly communicate. However, I do admit that my observations can be interpreted as the aliens being either cyborgs or fully robotic. >The element moving behind the eye cover could >be an engineered device or it could be an evolved eyeball.

I'm not sure if you read my blog, but choosing biologically engineered telepathy is not the logical choice as one would be invoking a mystery in order to explain a mystery.

To put it frankly, it's just not logical to argue for naturally evolved telepathy or biologically engineered telepathy when we are currently creating synthetic or technological telepathy. Sure the probability for naturally evolved and biologically engineered telepathy isn't zero, but it's pretty darn close to it. I would suggest researching more into the subject of Brain- Computer Interfaces. This technology will revolutionize the world. I'm not just talking about synthetic telepathy, I'm talking about driving a car by thought alone, surfing the Internet by thought alone, playing video games by thought alone, operating kitchen appliances and other devices by thought alone. I'm talking about controlling robots by thought alone and of fully functional robotic prosthetics. I mention fully functional robotic prosthetics because this technology is the means by which we will create advanced cyborgs. By advanced cyborgs I am referring to beings who are born cyborgs, having the technology Incorporated into the fetus. These beings would never experience life as a 'normal' human. When you think you understand the potential of Brain- Computer Interface then go back and look at the reports of abductees. It's amazing how so much of alien technology is remarkably similar to Brain- Computer Interface. -Jason Gammon Listen to 'Strange Days...
