Dr Daryl J Bem, Professor of Psychology, Cornell University

Once in awhile, someone of scientific significance comes across my radar and this time thanks to my son, Justin, he told me about Dr Bem and his parapsychology research publicized in 2011. It is entitled – Feeling the Future and is found in the  Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,  Vol 100, No 3, 407-425.  Now my son and I have had many discussions on perception and consciousness which includes things like ESP, telepathy, precognition and telekinesis.  You see many individuals have said to possess these skills but the majority of  people either think they’re crazy or they’re making it up.  This research done by Professor Bem studies the phenomenon called psi.  And the following description is taken directly from Dr Bem’s words:

The term psi denotes anomalous processes of information or energy transfer that are currently unexplained in terms of known physical or biological mechanisms.  Two variants of psi are precognition (conscious cognitive awareness) and premonition (affective apprehension) of a future event that could not otherwise be anticipated through any known inferential process.  Precognition and premonition are themselves special cases of a more general phenomenon: the anomalous retroactive influence of some future event on an individual’s current responses, whether those responses are conscious or nonconscious, cognitive or affective. Dr Bem recommends The Science of Premonitions by Larry Dossey for further study, and for a more comprehensive view of the science of psi he recommends Entangled Minds by Dean Radin, both available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.

I wanted to thank Dr Bem for his courage and determination to research and publish his studies, something many scientists would like to criticize and poke holes in the experimental process.  But more than that, Dr Bem says although he may not believe in impossible things, perhaps there is room for the possibility of individuals with say telepathy or premonition and hopefully his colleagues will agree.  If you remember my blog on Sages and Scientists, they too support the idea of Dr Bem’s research.
