In recent news, scientists in Germany have found positive results in experiments investigating a ‘sense of being stared at’. These results give some credence (and a type of replication) to studies already completed by ‘maverick scientist’ (or just plain ‘biologist’) Rupert Sheldrake. I discuss some of the issues involved in the debate over this effect, and other areas of parapsychology, in a new essay on site, “Pseudo-Skeptics: Staring at Defeat?“.
