Decision making and the Science of Experience

“Experts tend to be good at their particular talent, but when something unpredictable happens — something that changes the rules of the game they usually play — they’re little better than the rest of us.”

The Business Week article describes how  a  simulator that is used during medical training to replicate the conditions and pressures during an emergency diagnosis of a patient in A & E can highlight that an experienced medical practitioner does not necessarily mean that they make the right decisions under pressure.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences

institute of noetic sciences

Found out about this institute via the Horizon programme about decision making.

The main “scientist”, Dean Randin , has been Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences since 2001. His initial career as a concert violinist diverted into science after earning a Masters degree in electrical engineering and a PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. For a decade he worked on advanced telecommunications R&D at AT&T Bell Laboratories and GTE Laboratories; for over two decades he has focused on consciousness research at Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, University of Nevada, and three Silicon Valley think-tanks, including SRI International, where he worked on a classified program investigating psychic phenomena for the US government. At the institute of noetic sciences he was carrying out experiments that were suggesting that we subconsciously predict what will happen next: that we have precognition and therefore allows us to make intuitive decisions. This theory was highlighted via an experiment that used a slideshow that randomly selected positive and negative imagery. By attaching GSR sensors to the respondents, the anticipation that each slide would be an emotionally charged or non emotionally charged created varying results. These results were interpreted as being the key moment of precognition.

The History of the Future

The future, as a concept, was born in ancient Mesopotamia, when people began studying the heavens for clues to impending events. These days, certain New Age seers who study the Mayan “Long Count” calendar have concluded that time’s current cycle is due to end on Dec. 21, 2012.But most of us look at time as a linear continuum, and we expect the future to be different than the present. Some even believe the future will not merely be different–it will be better.Hahaha!!
