Psychic Teleportation

(cont'd)

By

The largely untapped (and unexplained) power of the human mind is taken quite seriously in Davis's Air Force study. He notes several experiments, demonstrations and other phenomena that seemingly cannot be explained by conventional science:

• The successes of the remote viewing programs demonstrate the ability of the mind to transcend time and space.

Psychokinetic (PK) experiments have shown that it's possible to effortlessly bend metal objects, such as spoons and forks, into shapes that are impossible by physical means alone. Yes, magicians like The Amazing Randi have shown that spoon and key bending can be accomplished through sleight-of hand, but real metal bending of this kind is no magician's trick; it has been observed and documented under tightly controlled conditions.

• Although skeptical about this, Davis even cites the reported teleportation of individuals in UFO encounters.

• In 1975, psychic Uri Geller made part of a vanadium carbide crystal vanish. The crystal had been completely encapsulated so Geller could not touch it, and the experiment's secure controls ruled out any sleight of hand.

• Controlled and repeatable PK experiments took place in the People's Republic of China in the early 1980s. According to a paper summarizing them, "gifted children were able to cause the apparent teleportation of small objects (radio micro-transmitters, photosensitive paper, mechanical watches, horseflies, other insects, etc.) from one location to another (that was meters away) without them ever touching the objects beforehand."

• Similar successful experiments were also conducted with Chinese children in the early 1990s. "The experiments were well controlled, scientifically recorded, and the experimental results were always repeatable," Davis says. In fact, these tests were actually videotaped or recorded by high-speed photography, and when objects were teleported through containers, for example, "the test specimens would physically 'meld' or blend with the walls of sealed containers." Other times, they would simply disappear from the container and appear in another location. In some cases, it would occur in the fraction of a second, other times it would take several minutes.

This is remarkable stuff and well worth investigating. If this research can do for p-Teleportation what the '70s programs accomplished for remote viewing, we may be in for some truly astonishing discoveries.

Of course, paranormal literature includes many anecdotes of human teleportation and people seemingly (and impossibly) being seen in two places at once. p-Teleportation could explain the doppelganger phenomenon, in which a person's double is seen in some distant location. Could this be a psychic projection of the mind? It could also explain disappearing object phenomena.

We are now only beginning to plumb the depths of the human mind and the potential of psychic abilities. As a species, as we have always pushed out into new frontiers: we have explored the geography of our planet, the advances of technology and the wonders of space. It may very well be that our next great exploration in this century will be the frontier of psychic powers.
