“Maybe, just maybe, the laws of nature are less solid than they seem…”
“But just as Johnathan Schooler’s big discovery was making it into newspapers and Psych 101 textbooks…something started happening to his data. Each time he repeated the study, the exact same study, his once attention-grabbing effect got smaller and smaller.
In this podcast, Schooler tells Jad and Robert about his journey to figure out what had happened to him, and why it was happening to other scientists too. After considering all the reasonable explanations (statistical quirks and procedural stumbles), Schooler found himself thinking that maybe, just maybe, the laws of nature are less solid than they seem.”
Does awareness change reality? And then, what is “reality,” really?
If I’m going to go all yoga-spiritual on this, I believe, in my life, that positive transformation begins with awareness. For me, true shifts in “reality” occur gradually and cannot be forced, but instead must be allowed. That’s my take, for today.
But I’m open to the idea of it changing, gradually.
What’s your take?
