Today Paula Seraphim (NYU) and I extended our off-kilter research on the possibility that we live in a simulation to off-kilter research on whether astrology has some basis in empirical fact. It does! There are birth-season correlations with many things. The issue with astrology, oddly, is not the data! It is with the theory that it is all related to planets and constellations. And if you think about the causes of birth-season effects on personality and capability, most of them (but not all of them) would have been much stronger 2000 years ago than they are today!
