Remote Viewing and the Power of Images

Recorded on October 20, 2023

We are pleased to share the following resources mentioned in the webinar:

In experimental remote viewing (RV) studies, photographs are frequently used as targets. But beyond the contents of the image itself, certain emotional, historical or spiritual qualities may be contained within the information field of the image, which could potentially influence the outcome of the experiment. Such considerations may not be limited to RV and are potentially relevant across many research disciplines.

One of the many potential outcomes of RV experiments known as “displacement,” where participants accurately describe an alternate, unselected image rather than the intended target, highlights the importance of understanding what qualities may make an image more or less “attractive” to a remote viewer. Dr. Damon Abraham, an independent researcher and behavioral scientist specializing in experimental psychology, emotion, and mental representation, has begun curating an open-source database of around 3000 images in collaboration with IONS and The Institute for Love and Time (TILT), which he tells us about in this webinar. 

This resource allows researchers to handpick stimuli for their experiments based on specific subjective attributes, and in this webinar, Dr. Abraham discussed the project’s inspiration and potential future, including implications of this work in fields beyond RV such Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. We hope you will enjoy the replay of this engaging and informative event!


Damon Abraham, PhD is an independent researcher and behavioral scientist specializing in experimental psychology, emotion, and mental representation. His interests are centered at the intersection of consciousness, psi, and AI for human potential and personal growth. His explorations include non-local consciousness (OBEs, NDEs, etc.), non-local perception (RV / precognition), and non-local influence (RNGs, micro & macro-PK effects, etc.). Damon has presented at various conferences, including IRVA, IANDS, and the SSE, and is an active member of the Parapsychological Association and currently sits on the Society for Scientific Exploration’s council is an elected member. Damon is the principal research scientist for the Entangled Consciousness App.

Special Event

Make-A-Will Month with IONS: Estate Planning and the Joy of Living

August is National Make-A-Will Month, and IONS hosted a free will and estate planning webinar! Learn the process for ensuring your loved ones are cared for after you are gone, and you’ll find out how you can support the causes you care about through the power of a planned future gift. IONS member Denis Greene also shared his personal, noetic story about preparing his estate.


Denis Greene

Denis Greene has been a member since 1992 and included a gift to IONS in his will in 1998. After getting married, he created a trust as part of his estate plans and set a percentage of his estate to go to IONS. He discovered IONS during his search for a scientific explanation of what happened during a transcendent experience he had while riding a motorcycle across Africa in 1980. IONS has played a crucial role in helping Denis understand the different states of consciousness he has experienced as a 50-year daily meditator. His current favorite area of research is lucid dreaming and its healing potential for those with PTSD. He has worked professionally in the area of planned giving and is now a consultant to IONS.

We are pleased to share the following resources mentioned in the webinar:

What Parapsychology Reveals About the Powers of Intention: A Talk by Mitch Horowitz

Recorded on May 5, 2023

PEN Award-winning historian and popular voice of esoteric ideas Mitch Horowitz joined us for a special 90-minute webinar.

In his work, Mitch considers the practical implications of a century of parapsychology, including conditions that foster psychical experience; lessons from ESP research, placebo studies, and neuroplasticity; and the potentials of retrocausality. Mitch explores what findings in psi research and quantum theory may tell us about inter-dimensional capacities of the psyche and fields ranging from thought causation to the UFO thesis.

IONS Chief Scientist, Dean Radin, has this to say about Mitch’s work:

“​​For the clearest and most eminently rational description of exactly how to test the power of your thoughts, there is simply no better choice… “

Time Travel and Unconditional Love

Recorded on February 24, 2023

Time travel. Unconditional love. Not only are these huge subjects to explore by themselves, but for most people, they don’t seem to go together. For Julia Mossbridge, PhD, an IONS Research Fellow, it’s different. Over her long career, she has studied how time is perceived by our unconscious and conscious minds, and how our sense of time is related to authenticity and human interconnectivity.

In this fascinating webinar, Julia Mossbridge shared the latest research and technology in the fields of unconditional love research, precognition, and informational time travel. Plus, Julia led a live guided meditation intended to support time travel and unconditional love!

What are Earthbound Spirits? Scientific, Clinical, and Personal Perspectives

Recorded on October 28, 2022

Around the world, there are cultures that believe a person’s spirit can be trapped on the Earth after they die. This phenomenon can be referred to as earthbound spirits. Some believe that these deceased people did not transition to the light because they either had unresolved issues when they died, or a fear about what would happen to them after death. Earthbound spirits don’t usually refer to spirits who may willingly choose to stay close to the Earth to help others, like guides, gatekeepers, and Bodhisattvas.

ConnectIONS Live hosted a panel discussion exploring this fascinating topic. In this webinar, you’ll hear from Dr. Helané Wahbeh and her panel guests – Alexander Moreira-Almeida, Jan Ögren, Guenet Sebsibe, and David Furlong – as they share their insights on earthbound spirits from scientific, clinical, and personal perspectives.

The Five Stages of Lucid Dreaming

Recorded on February 10, 2023

Robert Waggoner, author and lucid dreaming expert, shared the Five Stages of Lucid Dreaming and some of the powerful realizations that come with each stage. This presentation will help viewers to learn more about the lucid dreaming ‘path’ and what the conscious exploration of the dreaming mind can tell you about the ‘self’ and ‘waking reality.’

As the Taoist Laozi is credited with saying, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” The act of becoming lucidly aware within a dream is like that “single step,” but the unfolding of the lucid dream journey takes time and reflection.

The Nature of Consciousness

Recorded on November 11, 2022

The nature of consciousness is considered one of science’s most perplexing and persistent mysteries. We know the subjective experience of consciousness, but where does it begin? What is its purpose?

Today, the general assumption within the field of neuroscience is that all aspects of consciousness arise solely from interactions among neurons in the brain. At IONS, our research team proposed that there are problems with the assumptions of this materialistic worldview. We are exploring the possibility that consciousness extends beyond the physical brain and body.

IONS Scientist Arnaud Delorme, PhD, discussed his research and shared with us how we can contemplate new ways of thinking about consciousness.

We are pleased to share the following resources:
