Lesson 03 – What does science know about psi?

What does science know about psi?

Welcome | Lesson 03

1. It exists. If held to the same standard as other scientific discoveries, the existence of a human sixth sense must be regarded as empirically proven. According to Jessica Utts, emerita professor of statistics at the University of California, Irvine and former president of the American Statistical Association:

“Using the standards applied to any other area of science, it is concluded that psychic functioning has been well established. The statistical results of the studies examined are far beyond what is expected by chance.”

These short videos explain what scientists now know about precognition (the ability of the mind to perceive the apparent future), and telepathy (the ability to perceive others’ intentions and emotions).

2. The advent of quantum mechanics, and discoveries such as quantum entanglement and non-locality, opened the doorway for psi-based theories to be developed. Recently, researchers have come to believe this phenomenon is more likely to be connected to the nature of consciousness, and scientists such as theoretical physicist, Jouquim Keppler are developing theories of consciousness that fully integrate and explain psi experience.

3. The ability to receive and interpret psi information appears to be widespread in the human population. However, preliminary studies have also indicated that a specific DNA marker may be present in those with strong abilities, (ie. it may be true that strong psi aptitude runs in the family).

4. It is understood that psi information is received by the brain as pure data and is ‘translated’ into cognitive or physiological responses. This process is deeply unconscious and is therefore more likely to be perceived in moments of meditation or sleep when the conscious mind is neutralized.


5. The process is also deeply personal; information is usually perceived according to your individual and cultural points of reference. Hence, the differing concepts around the world about where this information comes from, such as God, Angels, spirit guides, ancestors, natural elements, or animal totems.

6. Your beliefs about psi phenomena, matter. Those who ‘believe’ in these abilities are more likely to interpret accurate psi information; those without a prior belief tend to use psi information to be ‘wrong’ more often than they ought to. Researchers call this the Sheep-Goat Effect or ‘psi-missing’. Put simply, when it comes to psi, believe it and you will see it.
