Hi,

You can find the proof here:

Please review this doc and tell your opinion.

I'm sorry, Miaitu, but your document is neither scientific nor a proof. At most, it is a record of an observation accompanied by an unsupported hypothesis.
Perhaps you can compare it with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_method#Elements_of_the_scientific_method to see what else it needs to contain?

Hi Kim,

If you look closely, you will see that there is some scientific proof that "energy is more real than an obscure UFO sighting." Because in the experience of energy there is a meaning. There is a causal precedence. We feel energies because we work on subconscious mind, telepathy or we meditate.

You watched the video? Could we please forget about the claim for a moment and could you tell me what do you think about the video?

Thanks,

Miaitu

I added the following text. I hope that it will be clearer:

What makes this proof scientific is the fact that in the experience of energy there is a causal precedence
e.g.

Event A → Event B

We can feel the energy because we meditate or experiment on subconscious mind and telepathy.

Other paranormal events such as UFO sightings have no such meaningful causal precedence.

This, I believe, is a scientific evidence that the energy phenomenon is more real than UFO sightings.

"Energy" in this context is not even a scientific term. No need to read on.

Good remark. How should we call it?

:smile: You can call it as bhāva or becoming..
