You lol'ed at science education spoof Look Around You: Brain, and now for Halloween here's Look Around You: Ghosts. In this nine minute pseudoscience mockumentary you'll learn things like, "Ectoplasm is perfectly safe to eat, and tastes like pig's milk." Spooky!

Hey Guys, I just wanted you to know that you don't have to be a reductionist materialist to enjoy the humor of this piece.

You may even be surprised to know that there are mediums, like myself, who actually do care about the scientific method and rigorous research, even though we disagree about the state of consciousness once the brain dies.

Also, for what it's worth, I have been vigorously challenging David Thompson, a British medium now living in Australia, regarding his most ridiculous claims about ectoplasm and his physical materialization claims.

Anyway, I think this video is hilarious and I am going to add a link to it on my own blog, I done thunk with due credit to Omni Brain.

All jokes and laughter aside, I do think that it is possible to address and discuss the questions that still surround the conflicting theories of consciousness without having to resort to attacks and ridicule. I hope we can all agree on this point at least.
