The Frontier of Noetic Sciences (Volume 1)

This series of articles, written by members of the research team at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, represents a variety of perspectives and topic areas in the emerging field of noetic science. They were published over the last few years in the quarterly magazine Shift: At the Frontiers of Consciousness. This IONS members-only publication, discontinued in the Summer of 2009, featured news, opinions, and research from the multidisciplinary field of consciousness studies.

The first author, a proponent of evidence for psychic ability, and the second, a sceptic, have been conducting a systematic programme of collaborative sceptic-proponent research in parapsychology. This has involved carrying out joint experiments in which each investigator individually attempted to mentally influence the electrodermal activity of participants at a distant location.

Electrodermal Presentiments of Future Emotions

Many people have experienced intuitive hunches or forebodings about future events that later turned out to be correct. Most such hunches can be attributed to unconscious inferences, others are undoubtedly coincidences, instances of selective memory, or due to forgotten expertise. However, sometimes a hunch seems so intrinsically unlikely and yet turns out to be valid, that one wonders whether such experiences, often on the edge of conscious awareness, might involve perception of future information.
