By Jake Anderson

In the 1990s researchers at Princeton launched the PEAR (The Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research ) program to investigate ESP and the role of consciousness in the physical universe. The book that resulted from this research, The Margins of Reality, presents statistical data backing up the idea that the intentions of a human observer can affect random numbers. In other words, because of the presence of a human systems that should be behaving randomly stop behaving randomly and actually become ordered.

This research evolved into The Global Consciousness Project, which uses random number generators–on days such as 9/11, the dates of celebrity deaths, and in general on days when certain events will attract the attention of millions of people–to document the effects of large scale human consciousness on random systems. The Project goes further to propose a global mind, a conjoined force of matter, energy, and consciousness, that some refer to as the noosphere, a hypothetical inner hive of psychic powers.

INSCOM, Project Stargate, and ESP Remote Viewing

Military ESP experiments
If you’ve seen the movie The Men Who Stare At Goats or watched any number of conspiracy documentaries about covert government research projects you might be familiar with the concept of paranormal military programs. There is, in fact, a very real track record of the U.S military testing remote viewing and telepathy on civilians and for use as interrogation techniques in the War on Terror. One of the most documented of these programs was called Project Stargate, which lasted from the early 70s to the mid-90s. Project Stargate experimented with clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and remote viewing in order to gather military intelligence and assist with covert missions.

Retroactive Precognition and Psychic Powers

In January of 2011 Dr. Daryl J. Bem of Cornell University wrote a controversial paper called “Feeling the Future: Experimental Evidence for Anomalous Retroactive Influences on Cognition and Affect” in which he described a series experiments he conducted seeking to prove precognition. More specifically, Bem presented evidence that future events can affect present cognition. Working off the premise that there are “anomalous processes of information or energy transfer that are currently unexplained in terms of known physical or biological mechanisms”, Bem tested 1,000 college students for their ability to correctly intuit random information. In one study, Bem conducted a reverse memory test, having his subjects categorize random words that they would later commit to memory. Bem’s results showed that the students were more likely to recall words in the present if they later memorized them.

Testing ESP: Ganzfeld tests


Ganzfield tests are parapsychology techniques which are used to test people for ESP powers. They typically involve various levels of sensory deprivation. For example, a normal Ganzfield test might feature a subject, the ‘receiver’, sitting in a chair with halved ping pong balls over his/her eyes and red light shining over them while listening to white or pink noise on headphones.

Meanwhile the ‘sender’, another person in a separate location, chooses a concept, a picture, an idea, etc., and attempts to transmit that target into the mind of the ‘receiver’. During this session, the receiver speaks out loud, describing what he or she sees. With the incorporation of more contemporary tools, such as automated computer systems, researchers who use the ganzfield method continue to report statistically significant paranormal anomalies that may be the result of ESP or psychic powers.

    the video (thrivemovement.com) touches on this subject,i personaly believe that we as humans when born are somehow gifted with a piece of the universe and/or some kind of energy and then we give it life though liveing,emotions,intelligents,are interactions with the world around us,and maybe are dna,,there might even be a cosmic intelligents on some scale,there is talk about other dimentions and parallel realitys ect,ect,rightly so,we as humans think small and/or within our,well we do not have the experence to understand the full scope of things as they truly are,another thing is,is that we are not ready yet,why,we would probly kill each other off, are race is well,nasty,greedy,bloodthirsty,i could go on for quiet a while,yes indeed our race is capable of great things and we are all connected,and have powers of the mind,are dna,genes were enginered and programed that way,dont you think….

    • Consciousness is the universe trying to understand itself, so yes, we are partaking of a very special enterprise. And though science has done a remarkable job shining the flashlight on the world around us, there is much to learn…but yes, we agree, our minds are connected by a mechanism not yet understood and consciousness and matter are interconnected as well. Just like birds flock together during climate changes, so too does the human mind chase the truth…

        How do you know what to believe and what not to…

  • Tests or not, I as a wiccan bleveie that some people are born with powers others aren’t. It’s just the same as some people being good at say, drawing. Some people are, some people aren’t. That can’t be reproduced in tests either.I’m not exactly , but I suppose some would say I am gifted in the supernatural. I’ve helped to banish a spirit from my friend’s house, and I once went to an aura reader who said I could be an indigo child. What is it you need help with?-Ashling
