I would like to do a small study. Would you like to take part?
Observation: Children develop the ability to speak at different ages. Specifically, when they consistantly start using single words to denote specific people and objects. (I think between 9 and 15 months is average for this).
Hypothesis: The retrogression cycles of Mercury could cause the child’s first Mercury-return to have a similar fluctuation.
Study: I would like to collect a sample of data for children, where their developmental progress in this area is known, and see if the hypothesis bears out.
If it does it is not only interesting, but a fairly significant step towards demonstrating in a scientifically empirical manner that astrology is potentially reliable for predicting practical events.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Send be the date / time / place of a child’s birth and a note of his or her verbal development; specifically say when they began to consistently use their first word. Contact me through www.vicdicara.com/contact.php
Data collection is as crucial as the experiment itself, so please be careful to give an accurate and non-biased description.
