InPresence 102Novelty

jeffrey mishlove


InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he recapituates yesterday’s InPresence discussion on religion and spirituality. He maintains that the antidote to mechanical behaviors is novelty. He explains that this is particularly important in parapsychology — and offers three different examples showing that novel projects that are extremely successful while repetitive experiments result in a decline effect. He concludes with a story from the world of business.
