Philosophical Approach

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 a guide for the design of our investigations. In the language of our experimental protocol, a target transmits information through space and time to a human receiver.
