Course Description

Many people claim that there is no theoretical foundation for psi phenomena, but over a century of research has involved many theories of psi activity and the best way to demonstrate psi phenomena.  From theories of animal magnetism to quantum physics to astrology, researchers have been testing the validity of theories that may contribute to the events that so many people experience in their lives.

This course is an introduction to the theories that guide psi researchers in their quest to better understand how psi works.  It includes practical theories like the experimenter effect and the decline effect, psychological theories like the sheep-goat effect, and more recent theories like Decision Augmentation Theory, First Sight Theory, and even an exploration of similarities between psi phenomena and quantum physics.

Students should have a foundation in parapsychology with a focus on reviewing research articles.  It is an introduction to the theories of psi, but does not include an introduction to parapsychology. 

Recommended prerequisites:  Introduction to Parapsychology or experience or courses that include reading and evaluating scientific parapsychology articles from peer reviewed journals.

When: Live broadcasts once a week or watch the class recordings at your convenience.
