Hey Erosa,

I think it's important to stay connected to the fact that our personal views/experience is exactly that - personal. Unless we intentionally find ways to make the base a lot wider/more encompassing.

I suspect your experience is quite narrow and has a built in amount of 'cultural' bias. That make sense ?

I hope this doesn't come off sounding wrong, but you are obviously dealing with a SUBSET (and a cultural one) of the general population. In particular, a subset who grants 'psychic' phenomena enough credibility to pay money for further investigation. It's an interesting phenomenon you've noted and I don't question the possible validity of the observation within that particular subset. Actually find it intriguing.

But we have to be careful about thinking that a particular observation either confirms or refutes a "general rule" that applies for larger percentages of a population.
