Project Description

My goal is to compile entries looking at ESP from several different directions -- including entries on personal experiences, entries on current research, and entries from the skeptical perspective. I might even include an entry on ESP in fiction and one on ESP in juvenile fiction. I will include under the general heading of ESP such subcategories as telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis.

This is intentionally a broad project, and the more researchers I can find to help out, the better it will be.

List of Prospective Entries and those In Progress

Obviously this is a rough guideline at this point.

  • What is ESP?
  • Does ESP exist? A debate
  • A parapsychology glossary
  • Test your psychic powers
  • The role of ESP in science fiction
  • The role of ESP in children's books
  • Personal Experiences with ESP
  • The History of ESP Research
  • Current Research in Parapsychology
  • Famous Psychics - their fans and skeptics

Contributing Researchers

I'm actively recruiting researchers to help me out with this one! Anyone willing to lend a hand? If you're interesting being an author on the project and writing some of the entries, please let me know. Check out the discussions below for more info, or to add your own input. No personal experiences or information from the discussion fora will be used in these entries without permission.

Further Information Required

See above. Thanks!
