A Psychic Experiment
Over 50 years ago, I purchased a mosaic kit (sort of a paint by numbers kit with glass bits to assemble into a mosaic wall hanging). My Mom and I assembled it, and since Mom died, I have had it hanging on my wall, above my TV). Over all these years, I have never seen another mosaic like this one, either for real or in a photo. About three years ago, I was reading a book by Pam Grout, entitled "Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality". This book posits that the universe is filled with a (quantum mechanical) Field of Potentiality (FP), which can be tapped and manipulated by ones thought processes. The first experiment was to "prove" that the FP exists, by asking it to provide (within the next 48 hours) a clear sign of its presence. With a PhD in Physics, I don't put much stock in psychic phenomena, but the idea of doing experiments appealed to me, so I went along. The next day after starting Experiment #1, I was watching the movie "Blue Jasmine" on Netflix. Suddenly, on the wall of one of the movie sets (representing a 1960s era apartment), there was a mosaic just like the one my Mom and I had made from the kit. I now have a photo of the mosaic on my wall, along with the image of the mosaic from the movie on my TV screen. The amazing coincidence to me is that I saw another of these mosaics, for the first time in over 50 years, during the very 48 hour period when I was conducting the experiment seeking a clear sign of the FP. At first glance, it would seem that the chance of such a unique event occurring within the specified 48 hours out of a 50 year time interval would be less than 1 in 200,000. However, the actual probability is impossible to estimate, since any one of a myriad number of "unique" events could have been accepted as a positive result from the experiment. Nevertheless, psychologically this result did feel like I was mysteriously receiving a psychic message from my dead mother.
