Why Some People Believe In Some Methods Of Weather Control

By Joel Carlinsky

The effectiveness of the Reich cloudbuster is of a whole other order. The observations of the cloudbuster extend to poking holes in specific clouds in exactly the pattern of the cloudbuster tubes, time-lapse photography of the cloud aimed at falling apart with other, unaffected clouds in the same frame, statistical studies, correlated Geiger-counter readings, correlated tree-potential readings, correlated light-meter readings, and several other phenomena. In addition, cloudbuster effects have often been noticed by people not involved in the operations and not aware of them at the time they made the observations.

The cloudbuster is as well confirmed as any phenomenon known to science. No other claimed method of weather modification is yet known that cannot be better explained by the mental processes described below.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apophenia is the experience of seeing patterns or connections in random or meaningless data. The term was coined in 1958 by Klaus Conrad,[1] who defined it as the "unmotivated seeing of connections" accompanied by a "specific experience of an abnormal meaningfulness".

While observations of relevant work environments and human behaviors in these environments is a very important first step in coming to understand any new domain, this activity is in and of itself not sufficient to constitute scientific research. It is fraught with problems of subjective bias in the observer. We (like the experts we study) often see what we expect to see, we interpret the world through our own personal lens. Thus we are extraordinarily open to the trap of apophenia.
—A Cognitive Approach to Situation Awareness: Theory and Application, p.333.
In statistics, apophenia would be classed as a Type I error (false positive, false alarm, caused by an excess in sensitivity). Apophenia is often used as an explanation of paranormal and religious claims, and can also explain a belief in pseudoscience.

Conrad originally described this phenomenon in relation to the distortion of reality present in psychosis, but it has become more widely used to describe this tendency in healthy individuals without necessarily implying the presence of neurological differences or mental illness.
