Can you sense who's on the line when you receive a call? Many people claim to be able to know who's calling them before they answer the call. Is this just coincidence or is some other factor involved? The Telephone Telepathy Experiment attempts to answer this question empirically.

Online Games

Blending scientific research with internet technology, IONS Chief Scientist Dean Radin has developed online games that test individuals' psi abilities. By participating in these 3 games below, you can help provide data that is used in our research on consciousness.
 

The Halls of Healing

The Halls of Healing are three free online games that test the roles of intention, attention, and intuition in intentional healing.

  • The intention game asks you to mentally "heal" a cartoon person.
  • The attention game tests your ability to perceive when and where something happens, or is about to happen.
  • The intuition game sees how well you can guess a cartoon patient's "medical condition."

The Garden of Dreams

The Garden of Dreams is a suite of free online psi tests, embedded within an adventure-type game, that allows web users to test and explore their psi abilities. The game tracks individual performance and provides a Hall of Fame with which to compare each person's ability against all other players.

The tests are designed so they can be automatically adjusted to match the performance level of each user, thus providing a constantly challenging game that may be useful in training intuitive skills.


Gaia's Dreams


Click to visit Gaia's Dreams

 

Gaia's Dreams is an experiment based on Carl Jung's concept of the collective unconscious. It is designed to gather and analyze collective dream quality and content, and to provide reports on emerging trends based on aspects of those dreams.

This site will eventually perform daily automated cross-dream linquistic and quality analyses. Ultimately the goal is to correlate collective dreams with world events, including natural and unnatural disasters, to see if collective dreams are predictive.

This experiment was partially motivated by reports of unusual dreams prior to 9/11 and the tsunami of December 2005, and by hundreds of historical cases of precognitive dreams. Data collected on this site will help us discern whether such dreams are truly precognitive.

Share Your Experiences

Contribute to IONS research by sharing your experiences using the online surveys listed below.

Transformation Survey


click to take the Transformation Survey
 

This survey is part of ongoing studies by researchers at the Institute of Noetic Sciences looking into the nature of transformations in consciousness, and experiences, practices, and other factors involved in the transformative process. Your responses to this survey will be used to help researchers learn more about how people transform, and the practices and activities that foster transformation.

We hope that responding to this questionnaire will be an interesting experience for you and will provide an opportunity to reflect in depth on your experiences and insights. We estimate it will take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete, depending on how detailed your responses are and how much time it takes you to answer the multiple-choice questions. The survey will ask you to describe a transformative experience, and will ask you many questions about your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and background.
