Mind at Large

IEEE Symposia on the Nature of Extrasensory Perception

Edited by Charles T. Tart, Harold E. Puthoff & Russell Targ

As originally published in 1979, Mind at Large documents a groundbreaking advance in parapsychological research. It presents the astonishing findings of two symposia sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). This Studies in Consciousness edition reprints that material in full, and adds a 1982 paper by Professor Robert Jahn, formerly dean of Princeton's engineering school, and head of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory.

Together, these papers by the pioneers in psychical research contain strong and convincing scientific data for the existence of psychic abilities. The papers were startling in 1979. That many find them less so today is a measure of how far our society has come in recognizing the scientific validity of such previously unbelievable phenomena. That others continue to find them startling-even impossible -is a measure of how far we have yet to go.

In this 21st century, we should not have to argue about the reality of psychic abilities. The five chapters of this book devoted to remote viewing experiments show that most people have the ability to describe and experience events and locations that are blocked from ordinary perception. This perceptual ability has now been demonstrated and documented at Stanford Research Institute, Princeton University, and numerous other U.S. and international laboratories. In spite of all this documentation for the existence of our natural capacity for such psychic abilities, they have not by any means been accepted as real by mainstream science. How can this be?

The data are in. But, the debate about the existence of psychic abilities continues only among the uninformed.
