    Part 2 of Mishlove's interview with Charles Tart, in which they discuss the importance of feedback in ESP experiments:



    "Here he describes the “decline effect” in parapsychology research as the result of a psychological “extinction paradigm”. Having subjects repeat a boring task without feedback, in many different disciplines, results in a decline of ability. His research involved training ESP using an automated system, involving forced choices with feedback. Subjects were pre-screened for ESP ability. As predicted, ESP scores did not decline. Tart then shifted to research on remote viewing, in which a single trial may take an entire half-day. Remote viewing subjects routinely receive feedback; and decline effects have not been reported among remote viewers. Tart also describes the difficulties of conducting psi research in a college setting with student subjects."

    Ed May explains how to create a significantly better remote viewing target site: set off an "entropy bomb" at the site:



    Video description:

    Here he points out that entropy is intimately related to our macro-world perception that the arrow of time moves in only one direction. In the sub-atomic world, and even in the molecular world, it appears as if processes can move equally in either direction of time. Some physicists now believe that entropy is a physical force that can explain gravity. He describes his own research concerning remote viewing targets in which those with a high change of entropy are more readily perceived through clairvoyance or precognition. This finding is consistent with research in conventional sensory perception.

    Check out the authors of "Parapsychological Research With Children: An Annotated Bibliography" , Athena A. Drewes and Sally Ann Drucker present a lively review and discussion, dealing both with research and spontaneous cases. Their own "M&M" (candy) ESP experiment is featured and Athena A. Drewes and Sally Ann Drucker both take questions from the audience in this fascinating presentation!

    Jeff Mishlove interviews Charles Tart about his time at SRI, as well as a few other topics briefly touched upon. Like Mishlove's other interviews of Tart, this one is quite engaging.



    Video description:

    Here he discusses the events that took place during his year long work as a consultant to the remote viewing program of Hal Puthoff and Russell Targ at SRI International, funded by the U.S. military intelligence community. He describes the unique psychological conditions at SRI that seemed to be extremely conducive to psi functioning. He notes that judging remote viewing transcripts is just as important as the viewing itself; and he offers details regarding different judging protocols. He also points out the care to which the researchers took to improve their work when methodological criticisms were offered.
