Parapsychology at the Rhine Center

What do you know? I just checked in to the Rhine Center website to look at some of their current research and what popped up but a familiar photo here. Click to see it.

It’s an old shot of J. B. Rhine and me. Rhine, a major pioneer in laboratory parapsychology, posed for this photo with me as if he were testing me in an early form of PK (psychokinesis) experimentation, in which falling dice in a cage came to rest at specific numbers with mental influence over how they landed. At least, that was the idea. Rhine thought that some gamblers on a roll sometimes had a genuine sense when they were lucky. But this was a posed photo, not a real test. However, the photo then traveled around the world, in various books in which  Rhine figured. I didn’t realize that even today it might be picked back up, dusted off, and put onto the web – surviving into the  current era. So take a look.

The Rhine Research Center webpage is looking for people  to take part in a telepathy test.
