Dale E. Graff asks: How can precognition occur? What are the implications of precognition? What can we do with this natural ability? In this study, there was no pre-prepared target pool for future random selection, as is typical for other precognitive experiments. Graff used future newspaper photographs as psi objectives.
Abstract: Experimental projects were performed for accessing information that only existed in the future. These experiments provided insight into the processes for information access and how various extraordinary experiences are similar or are related.
The primary experimental project was for perceiving photographs published seven days in the future on a specific newspaper page. This was follow-on to a previous future news project for photographs three days ahead. For both of these projects, the events and the corresponding photographs did not exist at the time of the perceptions that were sought during the conscious state and the dream state. Other projects were for target pictures randomly selected three days in the future and for picture selected in the future based on sporting events results or stock market levels, some for seven days ahead. Synchronistic experiences occurred and some dreams became lucid as extended forms of consciousness. Other dreams had images that symbolized the process involved in the perceptions.
A key finding from these experiments is that the future influences the present in a retrocausal sense and that the future interacts with cognitive process to provide information for action response. The responses can be through intuitions, dreams, spontaneous actions or synchronicities. This suggests that an interactive process with the future based on a unity or holistic principle involving precognition, retrocausation and synchronicity is an on-going subconscious activity. The ability to interact with the future indicates that consciousness has an aspect that is not constrained to space-time parameters. The fundamental constructive principle involved is based on information correlation in the context of relevance, meaning, or goals, and may have connections at a biological level with evolution processes. An unusual synchronicity illustrates an accurate timing correlation.
The potential source of the perceptions and the meaning of “the future” are reviewed. Suggestions for research and applications are provided.
Bio: Dale E. Graff has degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Physics. He has been involved in various personal and professional forms of psi research for over 40 years, continues facilitating workshops with focus on dream state psi and performing investigations into precognition, retrocausation and synchronicity. His books, Tracks in the Psychic Wilderness and RIVER DREAMS describe his transition from scientific doubter to that of accepting the reality of anomalous experiences.

Swami Chetanananda is author of Dynamic Stillness, and The Breath of God. Here he points out that contemporary westerners often mistakenly believe that tantric yoga is essentially a sexual practice. Actually, tantra need not involve any sexual activities. The essence of tantra is a focus on life energy or “kundalini” associated with the nervous system, [...]
The problems of society result less from an intrinsic “evil” in human nature than from our failure to stop repeating behavior patterns from the past. Change, says Virginia Satir, begins with learning to accept and understand the many parts of oneself. Ms. Satir, is one of the most influential psychologists of the twentieth century, was [...]

In this video, originally released in July 2016, he recounts how he developed an interest in parapsychology and was eventually recruited into the program at SRI International. He describes highlights from the program and how funding was obtained from various governmental agencies. He focuses on various operational aspects of the program and how they were [...]
Here he describes the findings reported in his 1993 book, Forbidden Archeology, in which he documented many reports from scientific journals prior to the acceptance of Darwin’s theory. These reports show evidence of modern human remains found in geological formations that are millions of years old — long before the generally accepted dates of homo [...]
Here he suggests that in order to engage in the scientific study of post-mortem survival of personality, it is important to begin by clarifying exactly what is being studied. This requires an understanding of such terms as human identity and continuity. He notes that there are many ways, in daily life, that we ascertain the [...]
Here he notes that the essence of Christianity is a heart-centered focus on love. Over the centuries, as the church rose in political power, various esoteric traditions evolved for the purpose of maintaining emphasis on this central focus. He uses the analogy of the apostles Peter and John to highlight the difference between exoteric and [...]
Here he explains that psychologists, such as Carl G. Jung and James Hillman (and himself), are interested in alchemy because it provides many useful metaphors for human transformation. He points to the history of alchemy as instrumental in our understanding of science and medicine. He discusses such concepts as the philosopher’s stone, the alchemical marriage, [...]
Here he discusses the various applications of out-of-body experience (OBE). For example, one tends to lose the fear of death after repeated OBEs. He also describes a number of scientific experiments involving out-of-body experience. These studies are important in establishing that OBEs are more than mere fantasy. An interesting feature of the out-of-body experience is [...]
Numbers are more than abstract representations of quantity, but also have a qualitative dimension. Philosopher and inventor Arthur M. Young, author of The Geometry of Meaning and The Reflexive Universe has developed a “theory of process” which integrates science with ancient teachings.

Here she describes how each animal species has a unique culture. Animals can communicate with us, and can even teach us, if we are willing to quiet our minds, let go of our preconceptions and listen. This often comes naturally to children. In fact, sometimes children experience communication from animals as an imaginary playmate. Animals [...]
In this interview from 2016, he notes that many of the great spiritual teachers of the twentieth century (Blavatsky, Steiner, Gurdjieff, Jung) had teachers who remain unknown. He suggests that this reflects the desire of all these individuals to avoid the limelight of public scrutiny. While describing most channeled material as “banal”, he praises Jane [...]
Here he describes the transformation of Elijah from a religious zealot who slays 450 prophets of the Caananite god Baal to a mystical angelic figure who brings enlightenment and connects humanity with the divine. He points out the influence of Elijah’s story upon Christianity and Islam. He addresses the enormous influence of Elijah upon the [...]
Here he shares his hypothesis that precognition is the basic mechanism that can explain every other form of parapsychological information transfer. Macro-psychokinesis, he suggests, may be the only suspected paranormal phenomenon that is not always amenable to explanation as a form of precognition. He offers several arguments for resolving the paradoxes posed by precognition – [...]

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. [...]
Sree Chakravarti of Delhi, India, author of A Healing Journey, has practiced spiritual healing throughout the world — without ever charging for her services. Here she describes her journey of awakening from the life of a sickly housewife to that of a healer. She believes that her abilities, which manifest as a vibrating energy in [...]
Here he explains that Traditionalism is a particular version of Perennialism. It is associated primarily with René Guénon and Frithjof Schuon. It is distinct from the more heterodox approach of Aldous Huxley. Traditionalists feel that the orthodox systems of the world’s major religions afford the best possibilities for spiritual attainment. They particularly frown upon syncretism, [...]
Dr. Hanscom went from being a fearless spine surgeon to depressed and suicidal. He describes his own journey out of chronic pain and anxiety. He describes anxiety as an ‘activated threat response.’ Unpleasant repetitive thoughts can keep a person in a state of threat, cause inflammation, compromise the immune system, and cause physical and emotional [...]
Paul shares that the norm may be that most people, including mental health practitioners, have psychic and paranormal experiences. However, people often don’t share their experiences for fear of being thought of as crazy or diagnosed with a mental health disorder. He differentiates between what may be a psychic experience or a pathology. If the [...]
Dr. Hanscom contends that the concept of self-esteem is the mother of all cognitive distortions. Self-esteem is an attempt to create stories about the self that are based on judgment and ego. These stories are often cognitive distortions that suppress normal survival reactions, such as anxiety and anger. Obsessive thought patterns or unpleasant repetitive thoughts [...]
Here he notes that all dreams entail embodied imagination insofar as dreamers feel themselves to be in an actual place with an actual body of some sort. He describes his method of working with dreams. It entails activating a “flashback” of the dream that leads his clients and students right back into their dream experience. [...]
In this video from 2016, she describes Plato’s famous cave allegory, and suggests that it is relevant to our understanding of quantum mechanics. Specifically, she suggests that the higher dimensional mathematical formalisms, although not empirically observable, point toward very real levels of existence. To buttress her argument, she also describes the nineteenth century parable of [...]
Here he acknowledges that expectations for future successful applications in parapsychology may be too high. Because there have been some dramatic successes in remote viewing, people sometimes fail to appreciate how difficult this work can be. In the future, the best chance for success will come from well-funded, multi-disciplinary teams that are staffed by young [...]
Here he describes many of the fine points and principles associated with the world of professional remote-viewing. He notes that while remote viewing is a skill available to everybody, it is not for everybody. He emphasizes the importance of ethical principles in this work. He also suggests that some corporations are quietly establishing internal remote [...]
Here he notes that shame is a deep-seated affect that is located deep within the mammalian portions of the brain. He makes a point of distinguishing between shame and guilt, insofar as toxic shame can be completely crippling at an emotional level. It is typically the result of early childhood trauma. Toxic shame also results [...]
Catherine received a full ride to Harvard, but her inner voice led her to the Middle East and Israel where she discovered her own family lineage to the origins of the Kabbalah. Catherine shares that the Kabbalah is about surrendering, looking inward, seeing into the subconscious, and having experiences. She states that nothing is created [...]
Graham describes the out-of-body (OBE) as an immersive psychic experience that includes sensations of floating and movement beyond the physical body. OBEs can occur during deep relaxation, exhaustion, sleep, and near-death experiences. A person can directly experience their spirit, inner peace, compassion, and oneness with everything. OBEs may assist to diminish the fear of death. [...]
Psychiatrist Price M. Cobbs was president of Pacific Management Systems in San Francisco. He is co-author of The Jesus Bag and Black Rage. While prejudice and stereotyping are natural functions of the brain in coping with a threatening environment, he says, we must consciously work to overcome the lazy mental habits that cause us to [...]
Here he maintains that he is interested in understanding UFO phenomena, not in “proving” that they are anything in particular. The key to understanding is to observe the reactions of people, both before and after their encounters. If they were simply extraterrestrial hardware, it is unlikely they would have such life-changing impacts upon people. Something [...]
Here he shares the preliminary results of his investigations. His first study involved in-depth interviews with a group of professional psychic practitioners concerning their dietary practices and how they felt their psi abilities were influenced by both vegetarianism and fasting. Their responses were surprisingly positive. He also conducted a survey, with over 1,000 participants, in [...]
Larry Dossey, author of Space, Time and Medicine, Beyond Illness, Recovering the Soul and Meaning and Medicine, discusses his critique of extremes within both the holistic movement and orthodox medicine. He suggests that in each of these there is a tendency to simplistic thinking based on reductionistic formulas and a denial of the individuality of [...]
Here she points out that there are several interpretations of quantum mechanics that are very different from each other. She notes that there are many disagreements about the interpretation of the interpretations. She reviews the perspectives of great physicists such as Neils Bohr, Max Born, Ludwig Boltzmann, and David Bohm. She briefly describes the lesser [...]

Here she describes how her journeys to the Huichol people in Mexico intersected with her marriage, and how she eventually brought her husband with her to the peyote ritual ceremony. She movingly describes the close, [...]
Here he notes that Gnosticism originated among faith communities of Christian believers in the earliest years, suggesting that it was based upon original teachings that Jesus shared with some disciples. Gnostics apparently communicated with other schools of esoteric thought, including hermeticism and astrology. Eventually it was persecuted by the Church and almost entirely eliminated. The [...]
Here he discusses a number of individuals and traditions that are, in the minds of many, associated with the dark side of mysticism. These include sorcery, witchcraft, paganism, and Satanism — as well as Rasputin, Joan of Arc, Trotsky, and Hitler. In each case, he maintains that one must examine the evidence carefully and not [...]
Here he describes his research to investigate whether meditators experienced detrimental effects from their practice. He found that the meditators he studied showed unique, positive characteristics very different from a population of schizophrenics with whom they were compared. He distinguishes between the use of meditation to remove anxiety, depression and illness and its traditional, original [...]
