  1. Experimental Design

    I like my sake the modern way, slightly chilled. It tastes less crappy that way.
  2. Experimental Design

    Prometheus, What about standard deviation? What's an acceptable sigma for this type of experiment? ps, please don't say six sigma. There might not be enough rice on Earth.
  3. Experimental Design

    Strange, The experiments that don't have equal amounts of rice in the jars or who leaving the jars open I would consider to be faulty experiments. Most of experiments I saw on youtube don't seem to fall in the category. As far as statistics, I believe that was brought up in my status post, "Try the experiment yourself. Do it a dozen times." IOW, do it however many times is necessary to get good statistics. BTW, yes I know the statistics part is a problem with the youtube videos.

    Can you give an example of how those experiments would give false results?
  5. Experimental Design

    The only possible issue I see with the rice experiments on youtube is in how they determine when the experiment is finished. Sure, they aren't using any method to determine when the experiment finished, but in nearly all of the cases I've seen on youtube it's pretty obvious. One jar is filled with black moldy rice. The other is near white. According to most of the videos, the hate and ignored jars become dark compared to the love jar. Therefore I would consider using a light meter to detect the overall change.

    I've watched a lot of these videos on YouTube. My recommendation is to focus on the intensity of the emotions, love or hate. The time duration varies a lot. Some people have seen it as little as a month, while others have taken 170 days. In this case, longer might be better. I mean, if the rice became moldy in one day in your setup, then one day of sending loving emotions to the rice may not have much effect. Also, the idea is to wait for one of the jars of rice to change by a noticeable amount. I'm curious what's the general plan if the experiment doesn't show the same results as found by dozens of YouTubers? Give up, or ask someone who's had good results to perform the experiment for you?
  7. Is everyone here afraid of the Rice Experiment? Real scientists are truth seekers.

      So you just like criticizing from the bleachers? Why are you here if not for science discussion?

      It sounds like you've encountered minor peer review before and had some ideas heavily criticized. I hope you realize the distinction between attacking ideas and attacking people. 

      So if I start a discussion for you, what is it exactly you'd like to talk about regarding "the Rice Experiment"? What does it claim to show? What is the big deal about this experiment, and why do you think people are afraid of it? If you don't couch the whole thing in terms of conspiracy, you'll remove a great deal of initial criticism.

      I'd like to see academics researching the rice experiment and similar experiments in-depth. I believe that's what my status post was pointing out.

  11. New Physics sneak peek

    I wouldn't discourage scientists from spending a few minutes watching a video that has good ideas. His math is correct as far as I can tell, but he makes numerous incorrect interpretations. Moderator, in no place in the OP does it say I will give the public the New Physics or even higher dimensional photon emission math. This is not the thread for that. Close the thread if you wavy. Makes no difference to me. I come here not for myself. [Wavy=want]
  12. New Physics sneak peek

    In due time. Like I said, I don't support a lot of his work, but he's on the correct path regarding the higher dimensional bubble universe. I would highly recommend all open-minded theoretical physicists watch that particular video for ideas.
  13. New Physics sneak peek

    The video is in reference to the last sentence of the discussion's top post, "Our universe is an expanding higher dimensional ball of substance caused by the big bang."
  14. New Physics sneak peek

    His video derives hubble's constant, shows some math on a 4 dimensional expanding bubble universe.
  15. New Physics sneak peek

    In due time. If you want, please contact me in private to know why since it's off topic. In the mean time here's a video that contains some math. I do not support most of his work. And according to the New Physics, he does not understand why his math works for the *known* Universe. https://youtu.be/buJiq8CBZX8
