"...proper attention to Earthly needs of the poor, the depressed and the
downtrodden, would naturally evolve from dynamic, articulate, spirited
awareness of the great goals for Man and the society he conspired to erect."
-- David Baker, paraphrasing Harold Urey, in "The History of
Manned Space Flight"

The reason ESP, for example, is not considered a viable topic in contemoprary
psychology is simply that its investigation has not proven fruitful...After
more than 70 years of study, there still does not exist one example of an ESP
phenomenon that is replicable under controlled conditions. This simple but
basic scientific criterion has not been met despite dozens of studies
conducted over many decades...It is for this reason alone that the topic is
now of little interest to psychology...In short, there is no demonstrated
phenomenon that needs explanation.

Modern psychology takes completely for granted that behavior and neural function
are perfectly correlated, that one is completely caused by the other. There is
no separate soul or lifeforce to stick a finger into the brain now and then and
make neural cells do what they would not otherwise. Actually, of course, this
is a working assumption only....It is quite conceivable that someday the
assumption will have to be rejected. But it is important also to see that we
have not reached that day yet: the working assumption is a necessary one and
there is no real evidence opposed to it. Our failure to solve a problem so
far does not make it insoluble. One cannot logically be a determinist in
physics and biology, and a mystic in psychology.
