The past can be influenced by the future
You can get better exam results if you study right after the exam.
Try it.

Let me know how many college degrees you've flunked out of.

Can we keep on topic?
Any upward movement of grades regardless of it being flunked or not will still prove my point.

Your reply has no bearing on this post.
Any reply I give regarding my academic prowess or lack thereof has no bearing on the topic either.
Not to mention it would be very egotistical for me to post the 4 doctorates & nobel prizes I have received.

I was the guy who yelled "Beware the ides of March!"

Didn't change a thing. Sad

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Some would say it created a false sense of security.
Maybe he would have lived if you didn't say it.

It's called a joke, Shane.

And, like it or not, it was on topic. You claimed that studying for a test the day after you took it could potentially improve your performance in the past. I pointed out, via a joke, that if you tried this, you would flunk.

Because it doesn't work that way.

You're either delusional or an utterly failed comedian. Or both.

Regardless, even if this pop-sci article is entirely correct, quantum effects do not persist at the macro level.

Why did you assume no studying would be done before the exam?
The technique simply says if you study after the exam it will help.

This isn't the macro level, it's the conscious level & there at studies that prove it.
I'll post one shortly.

Weird. I can't edit & my profile says I've been naughty.

RE: The past can be influenced by the future
Wheeler's delayed choice experiment. "No phenomenon is a phenomenon until it is an observed phenomenon." There is no spoon. Present is past. This particular bit of mindfuck has actually been empirically demonstrated by a couple of Aussies on a toad-licking walkabout in the outback. My response to shit like this is always the fuck you say?

And it's wrong.

Yes, it is.

Which is macroscopic from the perspective of quantum mechanics.

No, there aren't.

Bem is a known nutcase who still considers the demonstrably invalid Ganzfeld experiments to be evidence of psychic powers. His methodology and results for the "Feeling the Future" experiments have been ripped apart from every angle.

They are worthless, and are not evidence of psychic foreknowledge.
