Experimental psi research is challenging for a number of reasons. One obstacle is that it is hard to get a psi effect in the laboratory. Reliable psi approaches, such as Remote Viewing protocols, require a lot of effort and expertise on the part of experimenters. This not only slows progress, but it’s a barrier for outside researchers to replicate successful psi experiments.
What can make psi experiments more reliable and easier to do? The Psi@Home Project is attempting to answer this question. This Project, run by the Paris Institut Métapsychique International, combines successful psi research protocols into one easy-to-use platform. It is also a platform outside researchers can learn to use, so they can demonstrate psi for themselves. The key to the success of this Project is people participating in experiments from home whenever they feel ready.
Join us for this exciting ConnectIONS Live webinar, when the Director of the Psi@Home Project, IONS Fellow Peter Bancel, PhD, will discuss the strategy behind it and share his results from their first Psi@Home experiment. He will also explain their next steps and how you can get involved in the Project. Psi@Home is participatory, and anyone is welcome to join.

Peter Bancel holds a PhD in experimental physics from the University of Pennsylvania. Following a post-doc at IBM Research, he moved to France to work with the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique in Paris and Nantes. His research interests have included quasicrystals, phase transitions in two-dimensional systems and protein crystal growth. Peter began working in psi research shortly after the US terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when he joined a small group looking at data from the Global Consciousness Project. His decades-long investigation led to a definitive assessment of the GCP, one of psi research’s largest databases. He has published work on state-induction approaches to improving psi effect sizes, theoretical assessments of meta-analyses in psi databases and experiments with meditator cohorts on precognition. An ongoing experiment probes the interaction of psi and entanglement in quantum systems. Peter works at the Institut Métapsychique International in Paris, France.
