    Laugh as much as you wish, but I am serious in my question.

    What leads you to think that such a thing is possible?

    I enjoy conversing with others about such topics. It is within my rights to be hopeful, is it not?

    And I was serious in my response.

    Despite varied research into ESP over many decades no replicable, quality evidence has been obtained to suggest any form of ESP exists. On the contrary the evidence is that it does not exist. Instances that hint at the possibility evaporate when examined closely, with faults being found in either the statistics or the experimental method.

    What is the nature of the energy in the "resonance wave" you plan to generate? The only practical ones I can think of are sonic or electromagnetic. Can you think of any others?

    Do you have any evidence that our sensory perceptors can be enhanced by a resonance wave? If so, please present it. If not what makes you think this would be the case?

    What evidence do you have for planes of existence outside of accepted reality? What makes you think that an undefined 'resonance wave' would trigger our sense organs in an undefined manner to improve our perception of planes of existence, for which there is no evidence?

    Without answering all of these questions how do you expect to define the materials and schematics required? And if I could provide all these, why would I wish to share my Nobel prize with you?

    Edit: You have every right to be hopeful, but really your hope in this regard has an ephemeral foundation. I think it is excellent to contemplate such possibilities, but that is a form of entertainment and not science. To make it science and to have any chance of realising that hope you need to address the questions I have raised and many more besides. And you need to do so in the rigorous, systematic ways of science.

    Kensington I've just sent you a pm - I'm quite happy to have the thread stay here for two reasons:
    1. A casual lurker with an interest in ESP may stumble across it. The thread could help show them that it's not as simple as they might think.
    2. It is a delight to find an instance where someone who comes to the forum with a crazy idea is not themselves crazy. Seriously - welcome to the forum.

    Many thanks John, I appreciate your assistance in this matter. I hope that my post at least gave you a chuckle.

    So whats new?
    When where and why
    did you get the idea that
    ESP could be a resonance effect?
