The Reality of ESP: An Interview With Russell Targ, Remote Viewing Pioneer

Pages from NewDawnMagazine133-2

He retired in 1997 as a project manager and senior staff scientist from Lockheed Martin, an American aerospace and advanced technology company, where he … [Read more...]

Beyond the Five Senses: The Powers Latent in Humankind

Blake.Albion

By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, Ph.D. — The traditional five senses – sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch – are these the only ways to perceive the world, to gain information, to experience reality? In fact there are more than five senses, taking different forms, in various types of organisms, including humans. For instance, humans can also sense balance and acceleration, temperature, and pain due to nerve damage. There are other types of physiological receptors as well, some found in humans, some … [Read more...]

Twin Telepathy: Is there a ‘Special Connection’?

Twin Telepathy

By GUY LYON PLAYFAIR Is there a special bond between twins? Can they read each other’s minds? Are they telepathic? If you have been hearing questions like these being asked regularly but have never found an answer, look no further. The short answer is – yes, and no. Let me explain. As Orwell famously observed in Animal Farm, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” So it is with twins – some them are indeed more identical than others. In fact, the term … [Read more...]

What Gorilla? Why Some Can’t See Psychic Phenomena

Maze Mind

By DEAN RADIN Imagine you’re watching a basketball game. Your favourite team is wearing white and the other team is in black. In the midst of the action, someone in a dark gorilla suit calmly walks to the centre of the court, waves to the crowd, then walks off the court. Do you think you would notice this peculiar event? Most people might say yes. Most people would be wrong.  Our perceptual system unconsciously filters out the vast majority of information available to us. Because of this … [Read more...]

Reality Shifts: What Happens to Those Who Slip Between the Cracks of Time and Space?

ufol1

By P.M.H. Atwater, L.H.D.— Perception determines “truth.” We invent our own reality through our own perceptions and others’, and by accepting what appears to be real as real. History is filled with stories of people who, in “slipping between the cracks” of their own consciousness (thus altering how they perceived the world around them) uncovered different ways to experience reality. What they accomplished in doing this made an impact on society. You and I, all of us, have profited again and … [Read more...]

Who’s Afraid of the Paranormal?

Pan

By FREDDY SILVA— It usually goes something like this: average family live peaceful existence in house. Then one day, objects mysteriously relocate. The dog barks at unseen intruders. The tap that usually streams hot water now vomits a liquid the colour of blood. Strange noises are heard in the middle of the night; on the bed, the billowing duvet outlines the shape of a body that no one can see. The youngest child becomes fluent in a previously dead ancient language before scribbling cryptic … [Read more...]

Mysteries, Miracles & Parapsychology

DSC_4382

By ROBERT SCHOCH Parapsychology is full of anecdotal accounts of strange occurrences, which cause many people to simply shake their heads in disbelief.1 The phenomena of parapsychology grade into the mysteries and miracles that are the boon and bane of much religion. After all, to use a Christian example (and in no way am I making a statement about Christianity per se), not only can Jesus and the saints perform miracles, but so can Satan and his cohorts! When it comes to the question of … [Read more...]

By John Chambers Sois sage dear heart & set my teachings down  If you do not your world will be undone & heaven itself turn to one grinning skull.1 These lines appear in the poem “The Will,” by James Merrill (1926-1995), arguably the greatest American poet of the latter half of the twentieth century. Critics rarely mention that for most of his life Merrill was deeply involved with discarnate entities on a Ouija board, and that the poet’s 550-page masterpiece, The Changing Light at … [Read more...]

Consciousness, Resonance & the Paranormal: Synchronised Swimming in the Quantum Sea

reflectionsofenergy

By MARIE D. JONES — As a kid, watching the synchronised swimming competition of the summer Olympic games, I was always struck by how silly the sport seemed. Not to mention how it looked! Later, as a wise adult, I came to understand and appreciate both the degree of difficulty of getting human bodies to move in perfect unison, and the beauty that results when they do. Humans often operate in synch with others. I am reminded of groups of women who work or live together menstruating at the … [Read more...]
