Crookes (kr¢ks), Sir William
1832-1919
British chemist and physicist who discovered thallium (1861), invented the radiometer (1875), and studied cathode rays.

Crookes, Sir William

Crookes, Sir William (1832-1919), British chemist and physicist, born in London. His most important work was in the investigation of the conduction of internal linkelectricity in gases. He developed the Crookes tube and in it produced cathode rays for the first internal linktime. Crookes conducted research in a number of fields; his achievements include discovering the element thallium and developing a sodium amalgamation internal linkprocess for the separation of silver and gold from their ores.

Sir William Crookes, inventor of the X-ray cathode tube, was one of the founders of the English Society for Psychical Research, created to explore the burgeoning 'spiritualist' movement of the late 1800s.)

Just to be fair, but discounting Rhine's "dice statistics",  Crookes didn't have equipment capable of measuring nanovolts of energy, 100Ghz internal linkfrequencies, and microgauss of magnetic energy.

Calulate the "internal linkresonant frequency" of a nerve cell.  It appears to be somewhere in the nanometer range.  It also appears to be electro-chemical rather than simple internal linkelectromagnetic or internal linkphoton emission/reception.

It is interesting to note that the internal linkEgyptians made a very elaborate science of collecting, storing, and discharging large amounts of "static internal linkelectricity". Supposedly, a concentrated, ionized "field" would enhance the "psychic ability" of their priests.

An example of this technology is the "ark of the covenent and tabernacle" described in the book of exodus.  Or the rituals described in the "book of the dead".

20th century science has done very little research into this type of technology, preferring electromagnetic and electronic research.  We may need to "rediscover" this ancient technology.  At the very least, it could be enlightening.

I would guess that the "light bending" experiment actually has a normal scientific explanation, and would probably provide a groundwork for some "Real" PSI research.
