Porn Precognition

In einem Experiment haben die Teilnehmer präkognitive Fähigkeiten für Pornographie gezeigt. Pornowahrsagerinnen und ihre Eightballs, ungeahnte Möglichkeiten tun sich hier auf!

Experimentees were asked 36 times to guess whether an image of “couples engaged in nonviolent but explicit consensual sexual acts” or a blank picture would show up on different sectors of a video screen. Subjects were able to predict the appearance of the pornographic picture 53.1% of the time--significantly above the statistical average of 50%.

That number, while low, is significant enough to imply something more significant than a simple statistical anomaly. Bem's conclusion: there is a “precognitive detection of erotic stimuli” and a “precognitive avoidance of negative stimuli.”
