## What this experiment is about?

This experiment does not have any scientific support. It is based solely on the hunch that our brains have the ability to connect to future events in time and predict them, or even reshape the future by actively thinking about that event. This hunch suggests that there is a certain part in our brain that helps us foresee events in the future. This ability however, is extremely undeveloped and because of that we can't successfully rely on it to produce valid predictions. Nevertheless, if many people participate and try to predict a certain event, a statistic can be generated and the statistic will generate a sort of validation based on the biggest number of votes for a given prediction, (in our case lotto numbers).

## Who is the Lotto Experiment for?

- If you are a Lottery enthusiast who wants to try an unusual method to predict Lottery numbers this is for you.
- If you are a person who likes to research the undiscovered brain abilities this is for you.
- If you are someone who thinks that the human brain is just another organ like the liver and hearth this is NOT for you.
- If you play to Lotto more than one combination at once this is for you if you play each week the same combination this might not be for you.

## Cold Facts about the Odds of Winning at Lotto

For any person with a common sense and a little knowledge of statistics, it is clear that winning at Lotto is pure chance. ** The odds to win the jackpot at 6/49 are 1 in 13,983,816**. This article on Wikipedia explains all the mathematics behind the numbers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lottery_mathematics. While my statistics knowledge is good enough to understand how tiny is the probability to win at Lotto, my common sense is a little distorted on this matter. Actually it is enough distorted to make me believe that winning is possible. How can that be, if we take in consideration that all the possible measures are taken so that this is left only in Fate's hands? We know for a fact that:

- Mathematically, the numbers cannot be predicted;
- The Lottery machine is made so that no mechanical obstructions are possible;
- The balls are measured and tested in various ways to eliminate any doubts of predictability
- They change the balls on a regular basis

## Can we Predict the Numbers at Lottery?

According to today's science, there is no way to predict the 6 or 7 numbers, (depending on the lottery), that will make you a winner. Having said this, I still think that, maybe, *there is* a way to do it. The method I am talking about it's not very accurate, maybe it doesn't work at all, but it is an idea worth trying. This is the part where you play a role.

Let me explain this in more detail. The main idea is that fate and future are not totally unpredictable and / or inflexible and we can interact with it. Some people think that our brain has the ability to do that but it needs training and exercise.

It is much like the muscles that if are not used, lose a lot of their abilities and strength. We don't know how to train our brains to do that, and we don't even have the time to do it. Bu fortunately, there is no need to do that. I will make an analogy with someone who tries to move a huge rock that is blocking the road. He will never be able to do that by himself so, he calls his neighbors for help. Together they will move the rock.

This is only a theory that is not verified in any way. In fact, one of the main objectives of this experiment is to confirm or infirm the validity of the above statement.

If all of these make any sense to you and you would want to participate in an experiment to prove it right or wrong, contact me and read this post about how to pick the winning numbers and how to ask your neighbors to help you pick these numbers.
