Are experiments in remote viewing actually practices of a functioning quantum consciousness?

Something to chew on. When the notion of a human quantum existence is explored the question of how our consciousness would handle it arises...what say you? Been there done that?

  • Jun 8 2011: Most claims of extrasensory perception and related phenomena have been dismissed because firsthand accounts from credible persons and delusional ones are hard to differentiate, and the phenomena in question are similarly hard to measure at this point. I don't have anything against it or research in that direction, but until provable and/or reproducable phenomena are scientifically validated, I'll keep quiet on the subject. Worst case, I get an "I told you so!" later down the line.

      Jun 8 2011: Reeeeproducable...exactly... Experiments are necessary. So who's first to jump in the quantum machine to see how you see in quantum? I'm still stuck on the notion that a quantum existence most readily occurs in non distracted states. The removal of all physical interference. Yet consciousness seems, at first glance anyway, to exist solely to recognize just that (physical interference). Even if consciousness was to only recognize itself, it would still be aware of it's own influence which would keep it distracted from a quantum state...unless consciousness readily resides there.
