However, if paranormal activity really does exist, then it is relevant
to the development of AI. If there truly is something to consciousness
that is beyond our current comprehension, then that aspect does deserve
to be discussed on this list as it will affect AGI development efforts.
Loosemore has, at least in my eye, made convincing enough of a case that
it warrants at least some consideration - while paranormal activity is
still far from proven, it certainly doesn't warrant outright dismissal,

In any case, I believe the judgement of a topic's list-worthiness
belongs to the list owner and the list snipers. Let's leave that
judgement to them.
