One of psychology’s most respected journals has agreed to publish a paper presenting what its author describes as strong evidence for extrasensory perception, the ability to sense future events.
The decision may delight believers in so-called paranormal events, but it is already mortifying scientists. Advance copies of the paper, to be published this year in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, have circulated widely among psychological researchers in recent weeks and have generated a mixture of amusement and scorn.
The paper describes nine unusual lab experiments performed over the past decade by its author, Daryl J. Bem, an emeritus professor at Cornell, testing the ability of college students to accurately sense random events, like whether a computer program will flash a photograph on the left or right side of its screen. The studies include more than 1,000 subjects.
Some scientists say the report deserves to be published, in the name of open inquiry; others insist that its acceptance only accentuates fundamental flaws in the evaluation and peer review of research in the social sciences.
check this link out. It's a cleansing/purifying/smudging "ritual" that doesnt get rid of the already present positive energies, but eliminates the negative. It's an awesome cleansing ritual to perform on your old home for the new residents, and in your new home to be rid of the negative energies left behind by the old. In your case, the negative energies your roommate may not have cleansed away already. If you dont want to intrude on the energies already present, I would suggest limiting it to your own personal space (ie. your bedroom and/or personal bathroom).
