LU6W news

Dec 14, 2012: Cezar and Johan have purchased their plane tickets. They will travel together from Buenos Aires on Dec 31, arriving in Puerto Madryn at 12:50 pm, early afternoon. Alex and Luc will arrive in Puerto Madryn the same day, and so the operating and logistical teams will spend the afternoon and evening together, going over the equipment, logistics, and contingency plans. We hope to be operating between Jan 2 and 6. Once again, we would like to remind everyone that this expedition includes some very difficult logistics. Consequently, the above dates are approximate and can change depending on the weather conditions. Moreover, there is no guarantee that the team will be able to land. Rest assured that for us the safety of everyone involved is paramount.

Ganzfeld experiment

In a typical ganzfeld experiment, a "receiver" is placed in a room relaxing in a comfortable chair with halved ping-pong balls over the eyes, having a red light shone on them. The receiver also wears a set of headphones through which white or pink noise (static) is played. The receiver is in this state of mild sensory deprivation for half an hour. During this time, a "sender" observes a randomly chosen target and tries to mentally send this information to the receiver. The receiver speaks out loud during the thirty minutes, describing what he or she can see. This is recorded by the experimenter (who is blind to the target) either by recording onto tape or by taking notes, and is used to help the receiver during the judging procedure. In the judging procedure, the receiver is taken out of the ganzfeld state and given a set of possible targets, from which they must decide which one most resembled the images they witnessed. Most commonly there are three decoys along with a copy of the target itself, giving an expected overall hit rate of 25% over several dozens of trials.
