and introduce other complicating factors. Mr. Kramer seems a lot more patient than I would be. It's not a question of your being dishonest, BTW: I quite agree with Mr. Kramer that you seem honest and convinced.
My advice is:
1. Do a simple SBT with a reliable friend. If you can't disprove the null hypothesis, forget about it and listen to music. If you do get positive results, then
2. Do a DBT. Kramer's advice to do a preliminary test is a good one. If you can't disprove the null hypothesis, forget about it and go listen to music. If you do get positive results, then
3. Set up an actual definite date with the Randi organization. And don't bring in silly complications having nothing to do with the DUT. They evidently know more about how to do a good DBT than you do.
I don't think you will "pass" either the SBT or the preliminary DBT much less the controlled one but that's your problem.

I agree, given all the attention given the self DBT matter, I should have stepped back, agreed to this request and then resumed negotiations. The Vivid treatment was a part of my original protocol proposal and it took them some time to reject that proposal. In retrospect there seems to have been a lot of putting the cart before the horse coming from both sides. In my defense, I was simply looking to have a protocol established to base my blind testing upon. JREF does not stipulate self testing as a requirement. They simply recommend it. A confused and acrimonious muddle resulted.
