Animal Consciousness


Non-human animal consciousness research investigates a variety of phenomena including animal psi, the human-animal bond, and the survival of animal consciousness after physical death. Research methods used are observational and noninvasive. No animals are harmed or artificially stressed.

AIR by Mediums Regarding Non-Human Discarnates

Status: Complete

Description: This study employs established, published methods from mediumship research to determine if Windbridge Certified Research Mediums can report accurate and specific information (that is, accomplish anomalous information reception or AIR) about the deceased companion animals of living sitters.

Funded by: Survival Research Committee of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR)

Resulting Publications/Presentations:
Beischel, J. (2012, June). Anomalous information reception by credentialed mediums regarding non-human animal discarnates. Presented at the 31st Annual Meeting of the Society for Scientific Exploration, Boulder, Colorado.

Full paper in progress. 

Empirical Investigation of Canine-associated Micro-Psychokinesis (the “Dog Study”)

Status: Complete

Description: Micro-psychokinesis (PK) events include changes in the output of electronic sources of randomness and require statistical analyses to be detectable. This study examined the possible effects of the consciousness of a single canine companion animal (and/or her entangled guardians) on a distant random event generator (REG) through the use of the SyncTXT® service by Psyleron, Inc. Statistical analyses determined a weak but present relationship between the activity level of the canine participant (as coded under blinded conditions from recorded video footage) and the activity level reported in email messages sent by SyncTXT as a result of REG fluctuations.

Funded by: Windbridge Institute Members
