I don’t know much about this. Tell me more about Alex Collier.
I assume he Is a RV person? Is he associated with FARSIGHT?
From what I’ve read, RV is not and has never claimed to be 100% accurate. In fact, having as much as 30% accuracy is better than blind luck.
I don’t hold FARSIGHT to a 100% accurate standard.
But, I do understand belief bias and how people will double down rather than rethink their position. Cult members do this all the time. Rather than exam their beliefs more closely, having a prediction fail comes across to them as an existential threat. They can’t handle facing that so they double down on their original belief and pull their delusional blinders on tighter.
Unfortunately, ln my experience, many religious followers are like this. I myself was raised in a very orthodox religion and it took an existential threat for me to extricate myself. In hind sight it was the most frightening experience of my life. But thank goodness it happened because it opened my eyes wider.
A few things I subscribe to: First…I am confident that humans have souls. FARSIGHT calls this an “is be”. I’ve had some experience in this area, have read extensively, and have personal friends who brushed up against death and lived to tell about it. Medical science says this is all crap,…but then again, medical science also kills thousands of people yearly through malpractice. I do, however, see value in medicine; they are just not infallible. That is the point.
Second, I am convinced that our minds can and do influence the quantum world, if ever so slightly. Science,….those self proclaimed prophets of materialism, still can’t explain the observer affect, or the duplicatable double slit experiments. Scientists are often the most arrogant and self assured people I’ve ever dealt with. They, like cult leaders, can and do like to amass followings, Not all are like this, and for those who are not, I am grateful. But, I see value in science as well. Without humility, science can become just another religion.
Third, I believe that our physical bodies “dial down” our pure intellectual and psychic power….and, yes I am convinced there is a psychic element to humans. There are hundreds of carefully peer reviewed, and criticized, articles that document how NDE survivors have ENHANCED mental and psychic abilities AFTER they brushed up against death. This baffles orthodox medical and scientific professionals. They choose, in most cases, to suppress or ignore the overwhelming evidence.
I don’t know how accurate FARSIGHT is. But, from all of the things I’m more sure of, I can’t directly discount what the are doing. There could be something to this.
I’m also not a blind believer; nor, to the best of my abilities, will I ever double down again. I want to see what these folks can do.
