SOME REFLECTIONS ON MY — Psi: Scientific Studies of the Psychic Realm. New York: E. P. Dutton, 1977.
One of the things that I’m most proud of with my Psi book is the cover. The road stretching toward infinity is a painting by Ingo Swan, one of the world’s greatest remote viewers and a leading artist. It represents my own orientation very well, a solid grounding in reality on the one hand, a road you can create or follow, a willingness to consider very far out possibilities on the other in the distance…
I met Ingo as a result of being a consultant on the remote viewing experiments at Stanford research Institute, and he was one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met. If parapsychology had worked primarily with people as psychically talented as him, instead of, like orthodox psychology, working primarily with college sophomores because they were so conveniently available as subjects, I suspect the field would be much further along by now.
1977 seems like a long way back, but the book is a good survey of the basic findings of parapsychology up to that point, both the experimental studies, rigorous but not too emotionally exciting, and studies of the events that happen in people’s lives, the sudden knowing that a loved one has been killed, for example, and the like.
