As any interested hack scientist would, I plan on trying out the concept of transmitting and recieving numbers as described by kwhilborn... I have made up a cool visual aid, a local copy of the powerball results page with blank white and red balls for the next draw (yet to happen).
If I can manage to attain an alpha state (whatever that is) and 'see' the numbers pop into the screen (if it's even that obvious, somehow I doubt it), AND write down what I thought I saw, then record it in excel and play it for the next draw... then it will be interesting to compare it to my other single pick.
I do like to keep an open mind when new ideas are presented (unlike some others), but I also retain my skeptical side... kwhilborn is offering free advice, not selling anyting, and apparently others have seen improvements also... so it would be foolish to ignore this new(?) approach.
The big thing I have concern about is the "alpha" auto-hypnosis... I have seen shows where a hypnotist tried to hypnotize everyone, he got about 2/3 of 'em... not me... I don't like being out of control (that's one reason I never did drugs and generally have had about 2 6-packs of my favorite beer a year (year!) ) so this most likely will be the downfall of my own experiment. But I will go into it open to new ideas... worst that could happen is I stare at the screen and see zip... then I only have my other line to play... time will tell.
Inspired by dragon's blog log, I will keep detailed records and track the results versus the draws... just like I always do with any system.
I am trying to determine the proper protocol for the test... the way I see it, I already check the pb homepage the day after every draw... that must be the transmission point because it is a routine already established. reception will be the new thing to implement. I will have to concentrate more on the winning numbers i suppose.
This will also be the first week I skip the match6... I am bored with that already. I wrote to the PA lottery before M6 was announced and suggested they replace the stupid6 with MUSL's Hot Lotto... that is the ONLY letter I had mailed them that they never responded to, and I sent it 3 seperate times.... boneheads.
PB fans... the number 35 as powerball has now appeared 10 times under the new matrix (190 drawings). it used to be a fairly reliable precursor to the 20 being drawn, but the 20 went cold... 17 is still the most popular number overall with 32 white ball appearances and 4 times as the powerball.
