I'm taking a class in parapsychology for my masters degree. It's an exploration of psychic phenomena. In the class, you have to take a stance, either believer or skeptic and then write a paper supporting your opinion. I thought it might be fun to ask my readers if they were believers or skeptics. If you believe, which elements of psi do you believe in?
What about psychics?
A Parallel Universe?
Extra Sensory Perception?
Me? As a writer, I've experienced some weird instances where I write about something and then it happens, but I prefer to think of that as some kind of deeply creative soup. I'm actually on the fence about the whole psi thing, leaning more toward skeptic than believer, but there's a part of me that loves to think, what if?
Do you believe in some psi but not others? For instance I'm more likely to believe in ESP, than ghosts. You know, when you think of someone and they call? Or you visualize a parking spot and boom, there is is. I love the idea of past lives, but don't really believe in it.
If you're s skeptic, does part of you really want to believe in something beyond your five senses? Or are you bone deep scientific and require indesputable proof before you believe?
