Welcome to the IEET Fellows!  Look forward to working with you! all the best and Happy New Year!





Welcome David! I am enjoying Sum a lot.





This is pretty funny. I wonder if he’s still trying to shlep that theory that duration dilation is a function of elongated memory. I now have high school kids analyzing his experiment and they figure out on their own that it’s crap.

My original article on it, that even Scientific American’s online editor found compelling -

The bottom line is that Eagleman’s duration dilation experiment proves nothing because the key instrument that he used for the tests renders his “elongated memory” evidence null and void.
