+++ I meant it as a mathmatical anomaly- Pouring twelve cups of coffee
out of an eight cup coffee pot is not scientific so I conclude science
isn't always a factor even in the rather inflexible realm of mathmatics.
    Things like that occur and, it's no big deal- just evidence that
there are some laws unknown to science which make dismissal of
something as not scientific an untenable position. 
     On telepathy- it only has to happen to you once to make a
believer of you- dosen't require testing.
     As with many things, you shouldn't say it isn't because you
haven't seen it.   N.
