Precognition and Synchronicity: Implications for Safety and Survival
For centuries, numerous instances of spontaneous precognitive experiences about approaching future situations have been reported by credible individuals. These precognitions range from trivial to significant, may relate to the individual having the experience or to others, know or unknown. Many of these glimpses into the future provide information for the individual’s physical well being and safety. Sometimes precognitions are not presented to conscious awareness but can still be effective by prompting impulses to action through intuitions and synchronicities.
To gain insight into the possible link between precognition and synchronicity, and their implications for safety and survival, I review details of a few such experiences from a case study or phenomenological point-of-view. These relate to tragic events and include the Columbia Space Shuttle disaster, the TWA 800 explosion and a colleague’s unexpected death. A precognitive – synchronicity link was also observed for a witnessed replication of a “chair test.” Chair tests involve predicting who will be seated in a specific seat at a future public meeting and were frequently demonstrated by Gerold Croiset, a Dutch clairvoyant, in the 1940s – 1960s.
These precognitive – synchronistic experiences along with implications from psi research and spontaneous occurrences suggest that in some instances, they can function synergistically and help individuals avoid potential injury or even death. Some precognitions may even provide hints about survival after bodily death. Issues regarding interpretation of suspected precognitions are discussed.
Dale E. Graff is a researcher, writer, and speaker internationally known for his insights into the processes of the mind. He was a director of STARGATE, the government’s program for research and applications of remote viewingan aspect of extrasensory perception (ESP). He is recognized for his understanding of our natural psi talents as being a spectrum available while awake, Conscious State Psi, (CSP) and while asleep and dreaming, Dream State Psi (DSP).
His books, Tracks in the Psychic Wilderness and River Dreams have brought him international recognition as he describes his personal evolution from scientific doubterdegrees in aeronautical engineering and physicsto that of accepting the reality of psi abilities. His books have been praised for their honesty and for the way he presents psychic experiences in a neutral perspective, free of dogma and belief systems. He has appeared on several national and international TV programs, including Good Morning America, Larry King Live, The Crier Report, CNN Sunday Morning News, and several documentaries for the A & E and History Channel.
