The Cognitive Sciences Laboratory adopts a conservative approach to the research of anomalous mental phenomena. We make the assumption that all such phenomena will eventually be understood within the context of physical science. As a consequence we question dualistic, or mystical, approaches to these presently anomalous phenomena.
Toward that end, we have adopted an engineering communication metaphor as
guide for the design of our investigations. In the language of our
experimental protocol, a target transmits information through space and
to a human receiver.
