The Will to Disbelieve

By Michael Tymn

In his 1989 presidential address to the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), the late Professor Ian Stevenson pointed out that between 1910 and 1980 at least six presidents of the SPR asserted that telepathy had been proved, or nearly so. He wondered why, if telepathy had been proved by 1910, later presidents found it necessary to reiterate the claim. Dr. Stevenson speculated that each generation of researchers tends to believe its methods superior to those of its predecessors and therefore they may have seen the…

Telepathy: a Sympathy of Souls

BY ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph. D.

While on a mission to meet with the French King Henry the Fourth, the cleric and poet John Donne (1572-1631) had a vision. He saw his wife carrying a dead child in her arms. At the time his wife was pregnant, and Donne was so tak­en by the incident that a messenger was dispatched to England to check on his wife. Unfortunately, it was learned, Donne’s wife had gone into labor and delivered a stillborn, and this occurred on the same day and, as far…

Entangled Minds and the Quantum Factor

by Patrick Marsolek

Do you believe in psychic phenomena or are you skeptical? Have you had an experience not explainable by materialis­tic science? If you have and you’re curious about your experiences, you may have already delved into the realm of par­apsychology. This field of anomalous leftovers is what the early psychologist and philosopher William James called the “unclassified residuum,” a field which has been labeled pseudoscience by many mainstream scientists. If you explore with an open mind, you will find a large amount of scientifically valid research…

Challenging the Consensus

BY J. DOUGLAS KENYON

In 2005 Inner Traditions/Bear published Forbidden History, a collection of Atlantis Rising articles dealing with pre­historic technologies, extraterrestrial intervention and the suppressed origins of civilization. The book did so well— becoming one of the publisher’s bestselling titles and already translated into several languages—that in 2006 we all decided to do it again. With the publication of Forbidden Religion that spring, Atlantis Rising offered another collection of penetrating articles by some of the best writers in the business dealing with the suppressed heresies of the west….

Brain to Brain Communication “It’s not telepathy,” says Dr. Christopher James. Yet the British researcher and his team at the University of South Hampton in England say they have figured out how to do direct brain-to-brain communications over the Internet. We know what you’re thinking: isn’t that telepathy? For those who have dreamed of the fantastic possibilities of actual mind reading, the new approach may seem somewhat unsatisfying. True telepathy, as far as most current scientists are concerned, doesn’t even exist. And, cer­tainly, in the…

DNA “TELEPATHY” BAFFLES SCIENTISTS By all the rules that science officially recognizes DNA shouldn’t be able to do this, but it can. According to a new study published in ACS’ Journal of Physical Chemistry B, by Geoff S. Baldwin, Sergey Leikin, John M. Seddon, and Alexei A. Kornyshev and colleagues, DNA has the ability to put itself together over a distance, revealing something which can only be described as a telepathic capability. Scientists call it bizarre and they have no explanation, so far. Despite commonly…

Grasping the Future

By Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.

Based on the evidence, some of which I summarized in a previous issue of Atlantis Rising (Issue 71), I am convinced that at least some “signals” (for lack of a better term) can pass from the future to the present and leave their influ­ence. But how is this possible? Doesn’t it go against the fundamental principles of physics upon which our modern technological and scientific society is built? Doesn’t it defy plain logic and commonsense? The very notion of the fu­ture affecting the present or…

Independent Thinking in the Academic World

By Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.

As regular readers of Atlantis Rising know, I have found myself butting heads with mainstream academics more than once. Perhaps most famously, or infamously, for two decades I have advocated the position that the Great Sphinx of Egypt traces its origins back thousands of years earlier than the standard Egyptological date of circa 2500 BC(as re­counted in various issues of Atlantis Rising, including most recently AR #s 76 and 78). An older Sphinx overturns the classical view of when and where civilization and high culture…

The Paranormal Travels of Mark Twain

By John Chambers

In late May 1858, about to disembark with his younger brother Henry as a cub pilot on board the steamboat Pennsyl­vania, Samuel Clemens, then twenty-two, one day to call himself Mark Twain, had a terrifying precognitive dream. The future author of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884, 1885) later wrote that, in this dream, he “had seen Henry’s corpse. He lay in a metallic burial case. He was dressed in a suit of my clothing, and on his breast lay a great bouquet of flowers,…

Machines to Talk to the Dead

By John Chambers

Emerging from a coma a few days before he died, the great American inventor Thomas Alva Edison (1847-1931) suddenly opened his eyes and gazed “upward into space, his face illuminated with a smile as he said, ‘It is very beautiful over there.’” When he died his clock stopped, as did those of all his top executives. Experiences of telepathy or telekinesis, either occurring spontaneously or evoked by his experiments, hounded the inventor all his life. The rumor mill has speculated for 80 years that he…
