The escape from dismissal that the paranormal community provide is that the phenomena do not work in the same way under scientific conditions. This is such an easy escape route it invites derision. I think in a truly open minded sense though we should possibly pay more attention to it as a proposition, not least because in fact it makes perfect sense with the subject matter.
This at least makes sense with magick, because any text on this will witter on about the perfection of the ritual to achieve the result and how easily this can go awry. Successful results as such by science can be attributed to apophenia and to the magickal community as success -it has been my aim to point out how this division is irreconcilable. By this extension though, if telepathy etc whilst in the life of a psychic seem to be fluid and relatively frequent it does not seem outrageous that whatever level of informational transfer that is happening could be being interfered with by the informational structures themselves (the experimental conditions). We must note at this point that a thesis like this does not say that this infers the anecdotal claims are true rather it maintains that the explanation given by the experimental dodging paranormal community is cogent within their own framework. I do not know all the history of the experiments but it seems to me it might have been as surprising to the practitioners themselves when they were unable to reproduce results.
What I would add is that this difficulty is entirely commensurate with the phenomenological results herein. These again do not state anything about anything that ever ‘really’ happened but do say that there is nothing in the manifestation of these phenomena that can be dismissed by a thorough scientific explanation precisely because of the possibilities about reality they invoke. Any system that is making information capable of affecting a putative substance is going to be prone to be affected by another informational system. This doesn’t need to invoke any quantum physical knowledge, it is all laid out in the phenomena themselves.
