Extrasensory Perception - Does Science Lack The Knowledge?

Many still today are debating the reality of extrasensory perception. Extrasensory perception is misinterpreted as some people do not understand it. Many just dismiss it without doing any research for themselves, blindly adhering to the 'scientific' or 'religious' views. With extrasensory perception, all that really happens is that the deep subconscious relays unconscious information.

All humans have had an ESP experience some or other time and are really not an unfamiliar practice. We have all used the term such as I have a strong gut feeling, or my sixth sense tell me not to do this etc. The sixth sense is a natural warning "survival" mechanism. And believe it or not every living creature on the planet shares has this ability in one way or another.

Extrasensory perception has been dissected by scientists while trying to theoretically pin point whether this is valid or not. The ganzfeld experiment has been used by parapsychologists in order for them to try and obtain factual evidence that extrasensory perception exists. Scientists have shunned the fact because of lack of an explanation or any theory supplying reliable evidence.

Within many ancient cultures as well as indigenous people extrasensory perceptions has been noted as common practice and still exists in modern day times whereby there is communication with their ancestors as well as spirits and these people have been termed as having the second sight which in ancient times were termed witches and were persecuted or burned.

Much later did scientists as well as many other professionals begin to devise solid techniques such as designing cards that has significant symbols like squares, circles, stars, waves, crosses and circle patterns on then and made up a pack of twenty five cards called Zener Cards?

The professionals selected cards that were very well shuffled and only they knew what the symbols were and in turn asked the person professing to be able to mind read what was on these cards. As well as later even a dice was used to try and obtain the same effect and both methods proved fruitful. When scientists and psychologists could not prove a definite yes or no explanation after extensive trials extrasensory perception was accepted. But research did not stop there; the professionals went onto to investigating how the unconscious mind functions as well as evaluating the human personality so that they would come to some understanding of ESP.

Those that were extremely aware of extrasensory perception and believed it existed took the card and dice tests and produced very high scores as opposed to those that were bordering on the sceptical side of things. The professionals then categorized their findings into two sections as follows - believers were defined as sheep and those that did not believe as goats. Today this test is still applied by the professionals and is known as the sheep-goat test. Meditation and REM sleep were also used giving more solid theoretical results.

In modern day this is now accepted as the norm and extrasensory perception is termed as parapsychology and making certain types of psychic phenomena such as astral projection and telepathy as well as telekinesis a standard phenomena accepted by science as well as these being accepted as spontaneous occurrences. It was also found that these experiences were not able to be controlled or replicated in any way.
