@what Thanks for pointing this out! However, the purpose with this question is to get some kind of authorative answer from somebody who's actually used the software in question in a research setting. Reading the descriptions on the developers own websites only get you so far.

@jona Yeah, that's really not an option. I'm testning a ton of people at the same time at remote locations.

comment Is there evidence that brain and mind are separate?
What these studies show is only that the brain has influence over the contents of the mind. However, if that influence is total or not is still, empirically, an open question. Only in the light of a presupposed philosophical hypothesis (such as that mind equals brain) could such empirical results be counted as being in favour of the hypothesis, in a form of probabilistic manner.

comment Do people who lose their faith tend to replace it with other non-evidence-based reasoning?
Interesting question. I personally see a lot of these kind of conversions going on, but I don't know if that's just an observation bias on my part or if they can generalizable. From my non-PC, non-researched point of view, I just think that these generally are people with (1) limited intelligence and (2) an attraction to beautiful/interesting/comforting/et cetera theories rather than believable theories. On another note, is that "context" really necessary for your question? I don't see how it is and I would edit it out if I were you.

comment What is the minimum angle off horizontal before a line visually appears inclined at first glance?
Wait, what? 15 degrees sounds like a lot. Am I missing something here? Are we talking the kind of degrees where 360 degrees equals a whole circle?

comment Can the Philosophy thought game “The experience machine” be answered by Positive Psychology?
However, Nozick primarily defined the experience machine as something that could control the input to the brain: "Superduper neuropsychologists could stimulate your brain so that you would think and feel you were writing a great novel, or making a friend, or reading an interesting book. All the time you would be floating in a tank, with electrodes attached to your brain." That we all could live in a state of eternal bliss if we had access to machines that could manipulate our brains to be in any state we desired seems trivial.
