From Oracles to Algorithms: Wisdom Acquisition at the Intersection of A.I. and Psi

Throughout history, people have consulted with shamans, soothsayers, oracles, channelers, mediums, and psychics to gain information about the future and communicate with the dead.

One of the earliest reports of testing the accuracy of oracles comes from the story of king Croesus who ruled Lydia (what is now Turkey) from 560 to 547 BCE. Croesus asked the oracles in Greece and Libya to provide specific information about his activity on a specific day. Through this process, Croesus became convinced of the accuracy of Pythia, the Oracle of Delphi, and queried her about waging war with the Persian empire. Pythia responded that if Croesus were to go to war, he would “destroy a great empire”. Emboldened by this news, he attacked, only to learn that the “great empire” that was destroyed was his own.

Since then, psychics have been employed by governments, scientists, intelligence agencies, industries, and financial investors to provide accurate information about current and future events that elude our existing abilities to monitor and predict. However, as our technologies advance, the acquisition of seemingly inaccessible information will only become easier and less expensive.

While the study of psychic functioning and development will continue to have a role in personal growth, spirituality, and providing deeper insights into the nature of consciousness and reality, its utility as an information-gathering tool will most likely continue to be relegated to narrower and more highly specialized use cases. As information access becomes more ubiquitous, the real value in psychic functioning will be the ability to acquire wisdom from discarnate or untethered consciousness. However, the current challenge is delineating the boundaries between retrieved psychic information and the psychics’ own mental interpretation of the task and results.

To explore this problem, our lab conducted a series of trials utilizing a Controlled Remote Viewing (CRV) protocol to acquire information from blinded remote viewers about the nature of what is commonly called the afterlife. These trials produced unique results that were, in some cases, even surprising to the viewers (Boccuzzi, 2021).
