Psi Perception: A Range of Connections
PSI - SEMINARS - INITIATIVES
A close examination of the data from psi investigations can provide insight into some of the processes involved in psi perception. This presentation describes several well-controlled psi dream projects that illustrate the various pathways, or connections, that occur when the psi-accessed information is presented to subconscious and consciousness awareness. The data can be associated with features of triune brain functions — the reptilian, the limbic, and the neocortex. Some psi dream experiences are lucid; when the dreamer is aware of being in a dream. Possible connections between lucid dreaming and some of the incidents reported as UFO encounters are discussed. Potential sources of psi data and the relevance of a speculative quantum physics perspective published by Wolfram Schommers of the Nuclear Research Center, Karlsruhe, Germany, are considered. Schommers’ formulation presents energy and momentum as an abstract concept and the material universe as not imbedded in space-time but as projected into it. The significance of this perspective for mind-energy interaction is discussed. Connections with neurophysiologists and other cognitive scientists in conventional research areas are suggested and include the National Institute of Health (NIH) and other organizations.
Dale E. Graff, M.S. Physics, is a researcher, writer, and speaker internationally known for his insights into the processes of the mind. 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 doubter — degrees in aeronautical engineering and physics — to that of accepting the reality of psi abilities. These 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 facilitates seminars and work- shops, performs psi investigations and publishing articles.
