Press Release Author: The Thought of Infinity Group
Press Release Summary: After the release of an article discrediting the Baylor College of Medicine paper, \"Does Time Really Slow Down During a Frightening Event?\" by David M. Eagleman,PhD, R&D engineer Marshall Barnes will present further evidence supporting his criticisms, as well as announcing implications that now exist for the military.
Press Release Body: A press conference will be held Wednesday, February 27, in the main conference room at the Grandview Heights Library in Grandview Heights, Ohio, 1685 W. 1st Ave.at 4:30 PM. The press conference will present the results of research into an experiment conducted by Baylor College of Medicine professor David M. Eagleman, PhD. This study claims that duration dilation (the perception of how long things last) is a function of richly encoded memory and not a real-time perception. The experiment results were published in the paper Does Time Really Slow Down During A Frightening Event? http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0001295 and was widely promoted by Baylor College, which led to international media exposure. The experiment, and the significance of the results, have now been found by R&D engineer, and conceptual theorist Marshall Barnes, to be totally and completely, invalid. Marshall has succeeded in revealing multiple errors that completely terminate any credibility of the methodology used, the basis for the experiment, as well as the data that it produced. Now, new information has since been obtained from an article by Alan Burdick, of Discover Magazine, that raises further questions of the integrity of the study by Eagleman.
The U.S. Army Research Laboratory funded the Baylor study in part, along with the National Institutes of Health. The results of Eagleman\'s experiment would suggest little or no military potential in duration dilation, however, the new article disproving the Eagleman work suggests that there could be significant military value to pursuing this phenomena and Marshall has decided to arrange a preliminary feasibility study of what such research should entail.
This press conference will include a presentation of video material that conclusively proves the most damaging of the allegations against the integrity of the Baylor College study conducted by Eagleman.
