Automating a double-slit setup for data gathering - DONE! And it's so COOL!

Have you ever had a job that only an engineer could do and the only engineer you know is way over-qualified for the job? And yet -- you ask that engineer to help out and the engineer agrees, even t...

Got the double-slit setup calibrated and running!

Hello wonderful supporters!Yesterday we were supposed to get the double-slit setup calibrated, running, and automated. The first two worked, the second one had to be delayed for some extra machinin...

As you may already know, Experiment.com only releases funds when 100% of the budget is raised. Otherwise, no one is charged (yay!) but the experiment is not funded (boo!!!).This means we have about...

Eureka moment: In which I explain the pilot experiment to my husband.

In this video, my husband and I act out the "eureka moment" when I first realized what the pilot study was showing me.

Hi Jon! Yes indeedy DAT could have caused the results which is part of why we are automating the experiment. You must have precog'd this! Love, Julia

Hi Neil, I saw all your comments and agree with them all -- especially two main points: 1) broadening our examination of nature to understand retrocausality could create a field of science that explains precognition as a matter of course, but not as its main end, and 2) "influence" on the present rather than "changing" anything is the way to think about any retrocausal future influence. Take care, Julia

Hi Neil, I think there are a bunch of ideas about how QM could support precognition, but all of them are weak, because of course precognition is something that happens in very large systems (humans) with some kind of not-well-understood relationship with consciousness (which itself is not well understood). But I do know that some people who study precognition tend to read up on retrocausality, and the transactional interpretation and TSVF are interesting interpretations of QM that seem to support retrocausality, though there are arguments there too (like, whether what seems retrocausal is happening in spacetime or not). Anyway, it's all a mess, but that's the lay of the land as far as I am aware. Take care, Julia

Hi Roland, Yes they might I suppose -- to the extent that anyone's beliefs in any experiment they run might influence the results. Further, I suppose unconscious beliefs could influence the results. So I figure I'm looking for effects that can withstand all of that. And that can be replicated by others with different beliefs. Take care, Julia

Yes, I have always been a huge fan of Bucky! And his domes. You're right that option would work too -- I am expecting many of the backers will think of that themselves, but I will hint at it too! Thanks for the doubling of your pledge!! That helps a lot. And yes, see you at SSE! Take care, Julia

Thanks Jeff! I so appreciate you supporting the project. The best way to learn about it is to look at the first three lab notes! I'd love for you to spread the word. Thanks for being a part of the funding circle!!! Take care, Julia

Nice summary of the transactional interpretation -- from the source! Thanks, Tom.
