Australian novelist-futurist Damien Broderick and IONS Senior Scientist Dean Radin explore why psi research is important and what the evolutionary function of psi might be. Their conversation builds upon the insights of Damien's book, Outside the Gates of Science, beginning with his early passion for paranormal abilities and leading into the actual science, which supports the idea of “micro-powers” rather than super-powers.

In science generally, a phenomenon is not considered a reliable fact until it has been observed repeatedly by numerous independent researchers. One criticism of parapsychology is that it has not produced a repeatable psi effect. The "Ganzfeld experiment" and several other classes of psi experiments provide an independently repeatable demonstration of telepathy under rigorously controlled conditions.

Edwin C. May, PhD is internationally known for his work in parapsychology. Having spent the first part of his research career in his chosen PhD-degreed discipline, Low Energy, Experimental Nuclear Physics, he became interested in serious parapsychology in 1971. At that time, he was peripherally involved in a psychokinesis (i.e. putative mind over matter) experiment that was being conducted informally in the physics department at the University of California at Davis. Starting in August 1974, Dr. May spent nearly a year in India researching psychic phenomena with Yogis and other Masters. In 1975, he returned to the States and worked for eight months with Charles Honorton at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. It was there where he was introduced to formal research parapsychology.
Beginning in 1976, Dr. May joined the on-going, U.S. Government-sponsored work at SRI International (formerly called Stanford Research Institute). In 1985, he inherited the program directorship of what was now called the Cognitive Sciences Program. Dr. May shifted that program to Science Applications International Corporation in 1991. Dr. May’s association with government-sponsored parapsychology research ended in 1995, when the program, now called Star Gate, was closed.
Dr. May accumulated over 12 years experience in experimental nuclear physics research, which included the study of nuclear reaction mechanism and nuclear structure. Dr. May’s accelerator experience includes a variety of tandem Van de Graaff generators and cyclotrons operating under 50 million electron volts. Other specialize experience includes four years of x-ray spectroscopy, one year of trace-element analysis (x-ray, and a-particle techniques), numerical analysis, Monte Carlo techniques, digital signal processing, and cardiac blood flow research. In addition, he has conducted physiology research through the careful investigation of the efficacy of biofeedback in a clinical setting.
Dr. May’s eclectic background has provided him with significant expertise in a variety of seemingly unrelated disciplines; thus, he is ideally suited and experienced to direct interdisciplinary research. He is the author or co-author of a total of 130 reports: 16 papers in experimental nuclear physics: 30 papers presented at technical conferences on anomalous cognition; 19 abstracts presented at professional conferences on physics; 79 technical or administrative reports to various clients; and 14 miscellaneous reports and proposals. The Parapsychological Association, an affiliate member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, granted him the Outstanding Achievement Award for his contribution for research excellence. He was President, The Parapsychological Association for 1997.
Consciousness is a recent phenomenon in the history of planet Earth; we know nothing of it beyond or prior to terrestrial history.
Loyd Auerbach is Director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations and author of Ghost Hunting: How to Investigate the Paranormal and Hauntings and Poltergeists: A Ghost Hunter's Guide. His first book, ESP, Hauntings, and Poltergeists, dealt with the ways parapsychologists investigate psychic phenomena outside the laboratory, and the misconceptions of the phenomena held by the public, and was named the "Sacred Text" on ghosts by Newsweek. His second book, Psychic Dreaming, dealt with the current understanding of dreams in general and psychic dreams in particular. His third, Reincarnation, Channeling, and Possession was released by Warner in April, 1993. His fourth book, Mind Over Matter, took a look at the abilities of psychokinesis both on the body and outside the body. His newest book, covering many of his more interesting investigations, is A Paranormal Casebook: Ghost Hunting in the New Millennium.
Loyd Auerbach has been an Adjunct Professor at JFK University since 1983, and also served on the faculty of the Rosebridge Graduate School for Integrative Psychology in Concord, CA 1996-98. He holds a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from Northwestern University (1978), and an M.S. in Parapsychology from JFK University (1981). He serves on the Advisory Board for the Rhine Research Center in Durham, NC.
A resident of an Eastbay community outside of San Francisco & Oakland, where he lives with his wife, Professor Auerbach has been teaching Parapsychology and related topics for several years in the Bay Area—and, before that, in New York.
He was Public Information and Media Consultant to the American Society for Psychical Research (http://www.aspr.com) in New York City from 1982 through mid-1983. There he acted as a spokesperson and as an intermediary to facilitate communication between the media and the parapsychological community. He is still a member of that organization, an associate member of the Parapsychological Association (http://www.parapsych.org), and a corresponding member of the Society for Scientific Exploration (http://www.scientificexploration.org).
For more than 25 years, he has been investigating cases of reported paranormal phenomena, helping people understand what may (or may not) be going on in their lives. In 1989, he founded the Office of Paranormal Investigations, a group for people to call when they believe they have a psychic or paranormal experience or disturbance, and a resource center for Media, businesspeople, scientists, law enforcement agencies, attorneys and other parapsychologists.
Loyd is very interested and concerned with media portrayals of the phenomena and the science of Parapsychology. He has been a consultant to various television producers and writers in the United States, Japan, and Great Britain, providing both scientific and creative input, as well as help in promotion. Most recently he has been involved with shows for the History Channel, the Travel Channel, TechTV, the Discovery Channel, A&E and the Learning Channel. He keeps tabs on the media's portrayal of Parapsychology through his constant contact with media people, watching too much TV and seeing too many movies, through his familiarity and use of the LexisNexis information services (as a part-time Special Consultant to their San Francisco office) and through surfing the Net.
Besides his media work and consulting with other parapsychologists, Auerbach also consults with other professionals. He has consulted with other attorneys and law enforcement officials in cases dealing with psychic phenomena and belief in the supernatural.
Loyd Auerbach is also President of the Psychic Entertainers Association, and is himself an accomplished Mentalist and Psychic Entertainer, performing mainly for private parties, corporations, and at colleges and restaurants as Professor Paranormal.
Two distinguished colleagues and I have received funding to conduct a new experiment to test the hypothesis that the expectancy of the experimenter will have an impact on the outcome of a psi task.

Professor Daryl Bem, a prominent psychologist from Cornell University (now retired), will soon publish an article in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, a top-ranked, mainstream psychology journal. The article reports nine experiments involving 1,000 subjects, each study investigating an aspect of precognition – perception of the future. The combined results of the nine studies were astronomically significant, with odds against chance far beyond a million to one. Nevertheless, that a well-regarded journal would dare publish this article has outraged a few scientists...
We exist in an ocean of information, largely unaware of its depth and breadth, tuned only to a narrow band of frequencies. And yet this vibratory universe may hold the keys to our existence—if we can get on the right wavelength.
