More and more we hear the term ESP in the news, and even scientists are looking into it. Dr. Dianne Hennacy Powell we will discuss research and her book The ESP Enigma: The Scientific Case for Psychic phenomena. The ESP Enigma presents a summary of the research on the four basis psychic abilities: telepathy (the ability to access someone else’s consciousness (psychokinesis (the ability for one’s conscious intention to directly act upon physical matter), clairvoyance (the ability to see something remote in space or time), and precognition (the ability to access the future). Some studies looked at large group of individual with the hypothesis that psychic abilities may be an innate capacity in all of us. Others have researched individuals who seem to possess these abilities to an extraordinary degree. We also address another question: how could psychic phenomena be possible? There have been enough advances in science over the last twenty years to now propose an acceptable mechanism by which psychic phenomena could occur. This new model for the brain and consciousness has the potential to reshape not just our attitudes towards psychic phenomena but also our understanding of our own minds.
