Experience & Engagement Team
Have you ever had a feeling of something, that ended up happening? Re-lived something you dreamt about the night before? Or thought about someone – only to find a message from that very person in your inbox?
If so, you have experienced psi. And you’re far from alone! According to this study from IONS with 900 participants, around 90% had lived some kind of mystical experience transcending ordinary time and space at least once.
Psi is the modern term for extended human capabilities like telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis. There’s a vast amount of research suggesting scientific support for psi phenomena. In addition, an increasing number of reputable scientists – including Nobel Prize winners – have expressed their support for these phenomena as an integral part of the human experience that merits more attention.
However, since the existence of psi challenges the materialistic and commonly accepted worldview, it’s still considered controversial. Loud critics can make it hard to find accurate information on the latest research.
That was the motivation behind the creation of the Psi Encyclopedia.
The Psi Encyclopedia is being created by the Society for Psychical Research in London. It aims to be an unbiased, informative database reflecting the latest research within parapsychology and psychical research.
The project began in 2014 and has since grown substantially. You can expect to find articles covering generic topics (such as near-death experiences), case studies of key experiences and investigations (eg: a child recounting memories from a past life), and lists of people, events, and experiments. Some examples to dive into are the mysterious Versailles “time-slip” anecdote, past life recounts, and the captivating story of neurosurgeon Eben Alexander’s near-death experience. The Psi Encyclopedia will leave you in awe over the multitude of human experiences that are possible!
