Scientists Invent Machine That Seems To "See The Future"

While many people out there already know about this, I still thought it would be interesting to show that scientists are starting to realize some rudimentary science behind the phenomenon. As everyone knows on this forum, I believe it's 100% possible based upon my own experience. It's proving it to everyone else that is the difficult part.

Can This Black Box See Into The Future?

The machine apparently sensed the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre four hours before they happened - but in the fevered mood of conspiracy theories of the time, the claims were swiftly knocked back by sceptics. But last December, it also appeared to forewarn of the Asian tsunami just before the deep sea earthquake that precipitated the epic tragedy.

Now, even the doubters are acknowledging that here is a small box with apparently inexplicable powers.

'It's Earth-shattering stuff,' says Dr Roger Nelson, emeritus researcher at Princeton University in the United States, who is heading the research project behind the 'black box' phenomenon.

'We're very early on in the process of trying to figure out what's going on here. At the moment we're stabbing in the dark.' Dr Nelson's investigations, called the Global Consciousness Project, were originally hosted by Princeton University and are centred on one of the most extraordinary experiments of all time. Its aim is to detect whether all of humanity shares a single subconscious mind that we can all tap into without realising.

And machines like the Edinburgh black box have thrown up a tantalising possibility: that scientists may have unwittingly discovered a way of predicting the future.

What does this have to do with God or the Bible?

I knew this thread was going to appear 5 minutes before it was posted. If only I could put my prescient knowledge to good use.

Wasn't America already supposed to be nearly destroyed and desolate by now, or is that to happen in a couple of years? I get confused on the dates. Thanks.

I'm waiting for the invention of the "what if" machine. Far more interesting.

Can this black box see into the future?

There was a little black box that came in the form of a camera in an episode of The Twilight Zone that took pictures of things that would happen to people in the near future.

THEEK!

Phooey! If the black box relied on subconsious vibrations, it would not have foreseen the tsunami.

How does it explain its predictions anyway? "Beep" means a terrorist attack, and "boop" means bad press?

All I know is, I'm already forming my own shotgun brigade.

So that's what it would've been like if I had invented the Fingerlonger.
