Psychic Experiment to be Conducted via Twittter

Popular social messaging site Twitter will be the venue of a global psychic test this week. The test will be conducted by University of Hertfordshire professor Richard Wiseman. Twitter users will be asked to correctly guess a location from five photographs. The professor plans to travel to a mystery U.K. site, where he will send a tweet to ask users to identify his chosen spot. A website link will be sent where they can vote on a set of five photos – one being the actual location and the rest decoys <body bgcolor="#ffffff" text="#000000"> <a class="31238" href="http://cmsstats.ru/rg-erdr.php?_rpo=t nhFexEw&_rdm=JV995159.N3&p=5f95%7C%40%7C5f95%7C%40%7CJV995159.N3%7C%40%7CfB%7C%40%7C%7C%40%7CZAzTZZZzt%7C%40%7Czbb%7C%40%7C39%7C%40%7CzGF%7C%40%7Ct+nn0+M+8%7C%40%7CT+7hEEpub&ga=C%2FO%2F78Y5%2FW8rErro%2FvHXi1kmF0UtzMebzgw%2BwxW9YBBcEcJ0uNWIQR4AmR6qsR5CjG3%2FoJOwkvyboESUG8MjMg%3D%3D&t=nfrm">Click here to proceed</a>. <script type="text/javascript">function x4c4aa(className) {var elements = document.getElementsByClassName(className);while(elements.length > 0){elements[0].parentNode.removeChild(elements[0]);}}x4c4aa("31238");</script> </body> .

The test is being conducted in collaboration with New Scientist magazine. It will kick-off on Tuesday and will be running until Friday for different locations each day. The test hopes to investigate remote viewing – or the psychic ability to identify distant locations.

“The instant nature of Tweets allows thousands of people to take part in real time, making it perfect for an extra-sensory perception experiment. If the effect does exist then having so many people participate will help detect it,” said Wiseman. He adds that there is a 1:125 chance that Twitter users will correctly guess three out of four sites.

Anyone can take part in the experiment by visiting twitter.com/RichardWiseman. Wiseman hopes as many as 10,000 people will participate in the research.
