Seriously? What, we're going to re-write physics for this?

This is just an experiment, and on the edge of policy, therefore it could be removed suddenly along with your comments.

hehe, I like that, thats funny and only serves to prove how small minded the majority is.. anyways.. my apologies to the majority.

I have spent my entire life studying this phenomena over and over again. And all the while it refuses, over and over again to be categorized. Might it be that it shouldn't or doesn't want to be? All reason aside. you cant reason with something outside of reason... let alone logic. There are no machines and/or technology that are capable to gauge 'will' yet we know its there. Its omnipresent. I dare anyone to defy will and tell me that life does not follow.

I do not speak of will as a tool, mind you, but an ever present entity. No, I am not an atheist, agnostic, or even a remotely a religious person. I have, however, managed to attain certain 'levels' of 'awareness' that most people do not bother with. Not recently anyways.

One might delve into the ethereal which is, by no stretch of the imagination, provable. Its only a facsimile based on here-say and... well... first hand accounts. Either by loved ones or mere subjects. Either way it cannot be exploited by our current technology. Not by a long shot. You may as well use a can to open a can opener.. yeah, bad analogy, but that's pretty much it. Sorry to say but science is not the end-all-cure-all. Reason is too limited. Logic too vague. Its time for us to grow up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rectauta Dfgata (talkcontribs) 02:39, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I just loved the headline of this story. I immediately thought 'what are they going to Russian Roulette with eachother?' —Preceding unsigned comment added by Conman33 (talkcontribs) 06:33, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Already did this...fictionallyEdit

This has already been done, on a fictional stage. Remember the movie Flatliners? DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 06:38, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
