Hi Aaron!aaron said:Gene,
No. I still need to listen to the Horn/Biedny (and David if I'm misspelling your name my apologies) steel cage match. Out of curiosity, who did the ranking and what number was Imara?
And thanks for the show and the change of pace.

When it comes to a psychic, a great deal of what we're dealing with is highly subjective. I personally regard Imara has a sensitive and highly-intelligent person. I do not profess to know if she has special powers, but we were happy to have her on, and I welcome suggestions for questions when she returns to the show.glenn40 said:Hey Gentlemen,
really enjoy your show. I didn't find that psychic credible. Although she is a very intelligent woman she was too general. In her insight towards both of you anyone could have given you the same feedback without knowing you personally.
I also found the questions that you both asked were not relevent to her proving she had any powers of intuition other that what anyone could generalize about anyone. You guys treated her with kid gloves.
I think the point Imara was trying to make was that children are just more sensitive and the culture we grow up in doesn't allow for us to learn our own "seer" or psychich ability as we get older. The technology bit was about us losing touch with this as well, but I don't think it was supposed to be the main cause.. that was my interpretation anyways. I listened this morning, so maybe I've forgotten what I heard toomichael said:I also got the impression that children are so sensitive and have so many abilities that they're born with, but then technology and our society kind of dumbs them down. What about children who grow up in countries without technology? Shouldn't they grow up to be "super psychics" because they're untainted by MTV and e-mails?
Maybe I'm just getting to be an old crank.
I thought she was great. She sounds like an intelligent, well rounded, and articulate guest to have around. For suggestions to psychic ability discussion, I think you should have someone on the show with her to talk to and get a 'reading' on. I would be glad to do it myself, but she could find out a lot about me from my blog. That wouldn't be a good test. I remain hopefull about psychics because I remain hopeful about the ether being rediscovered, but this particular show didn't tell me anything I could say wasn't already thought of. I did, however, get to listen to an intelligent lady with apparently a good heart. Maybe if she reads this, she'll know what to do to help me save the world.Gene Steinberg said:When it comes to a psychic, a great deal of what we're dealing with is highly subjective.
