Parapsychology

This program explores parapsychological topics (i.e., telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis or mind-matter interactions) as well as experimenter effects, alternative healing, intention, our connection to each other, and the potential that exists within each of us.

Application of Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging to Macroscopic Psychokinetic Phenomena Reported During Séances with a Physical Medium

Empirical Investigations of Parapsychological Experimenter Effects

Status: In Progress

Description: When designing experimental methodologies and analyzing study results, it is important to keep in mind the potential impact of the experimenter’s consciousness. These effects may result from conscious intention or subconscious desire (the latter of which may oppose the former). This study aims to explore the methods and outcomes from different experiments varying in experimenter belief, desire, and intention.
