People who 'hear voices' can detect hidden speech in unusual sounds https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2 ... 085707.htm

Neat article. I adjacently related, I recently learned that I can intentionally problem solve by invoking auditory conversations between people in their voices. Ones which might take place to explain their behavior toward me or whom/what-ever and how they might reason about it in response. If that makes sense. But like when there's mild innocuous ambient noise about from an oscillating fan or humming a/c. Like we're talking sophisticated type of convos. It's cool 'cause I'm spontaneously generating it without trying but I'm aware who the thought 'author' is (me lol) - kinda thing. Yes I could've lifted the proper jargon from the internet for more precision but that's cheating. Honestly I'm convinced I'm unusually clever and it's basically just advanced creativity. Also, that reminds me I should go looking for internet groups where people share similar non-psychiatric features of mind, i.e. acute hearing, creativity and the parsing of sensory stimuli that spontaneously triggers lots of references about stuff. Seems like it could be monetized somehow. Cool parlor trick perhaps? Still would be cool to be like you nerds. But I'm still more different neener neener neeeeeener. I guess all I'm trying to say is there's joy in self-discovery isn't there.

Chris Langan has stated that the Covid vaccine is a slow-kill depop agenda?

Chris Langan seems a bit nuts. One would think a high IQ (which he supposedly has) would provide the necessary critical thinking skills to prevent one from falling down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole. Maybe not.

Quite a few highly gifted people seem very irrational (it's actually more common than not to have extreme neurosis.) It depends on how much people seek social approval and conform to consensus. Usually, conspiracy theories are less common, but some of the conclusions that conflict with official reports can only be gleaned by people who don't agree with 'authority' on a subject. '

The kinds of conspiratorial thinking of people like Alex Jones can only come from extreme narcissism, and Chris Langan is definitely a narcissist. His biggest supporters have turned their back on him (but still seem obsessed with being active on Facebook groups that focus on his "theory of everything") and he's also doing some kind of routine where he expects people to pay him a lot of money (an interview is $10,000) just to be in his presence. He sort of has an Ayn Rand "flying monkey" troupe, not unlike the Raelians or Billy Meier kool-aid fan club.

I was thinking of creating the username: PsychoMaster though it should still be available.

Quantum physics: reality is what we choose to observe

Physicists provide support for retrocausal quantum theory, in which the future influences the past

SCIENTISTS SAY THEY'VE FIGURED OUT A WAY TO READ THOUGHTS USING AN MRI MACHINE
https://futurism.com/neoscope/scientist ... ri-machine


Basically, "reading thoughts" requires predictive models, which aren't actually mind-readers, but interpreters for what someone could be thinking based on preproprammed and predictive interpretations. Using an MRI would be fairly restrictive. . .
