Unbelievable

Rain barrels that refill themselves. Psychic horses. Mind-reading Cold War spies. For many, these phenomena are evidence of an unseen world just beyond the grasp of our five senses. For a group of scientists at Duke University, such mysteries demanded further investigation. From 1930 to 1980, under the leadership of Dr. J. B. Rhine, often considered the Einstein of the paranormal, the scientists at the Duke Parapsychology Lab attempted to test the bizarre, the frightening, and the unexplainable against the rigors of science.

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.

Of two minds

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.
