Edwin C. May, PhD, was involved in the military intelligence psychic spying program, popularly referred to as Stargate, for over twenty years. During the last decade, he was the director of research for that program. In this context, he produced over a hundred scientific publications. His academic training was in experimental nuclear physics. He is coauthor of ESP Wars: East and West and also Anomalous Cognition: Remote Viewing Research and Theory. He is the coeditor of a two volume anthology titled Extrasensory Perception: Support, Skepticism, and Science.

Here he explains why he felt the need to coin the term, “anomalous cognition,” to refer to phenomena previously known as extrasensory perception, clairvoyance, or remote viewing. He then describes a variety of research questions that concerned him – such as how to find the most talented subjects and under what conditions did they best perform. His research suggests that about one percent of the population is capable of highly accurate and relatively consistent remote viewing performance.
