So although it's not impossible that minds can somehow act as a group, that is something in need of *real* experimental evidence. Stacking a controversial theory on a weird idea balancing on an impossible situation is asking for trouble!

Actually, the experiments of Schmidt et al, and the evidence cited in "Wisdom of Crowds" suggest a QM model. Of course, anyone can--and will!--deride an experiment as not being "real"---after all, that's how the science game is played, ;-), but prediction is one of the gold standards for an experimental model, and Schmidt's work, though not explanatory (neither is QM) it *is* predictive. And if there's a difference between singular experience and plural experiences, then maybe it may be worthwhile to apply it to the thought problems here.
