General Psychic Powers: Study Shows We Can See The Future


Apr 4, 2005

LONDON: Are humans psychic ? A startling study has suggested that many people can see into the future.

Researchers, led by Daryl Bem at Cornell University, who carried out the study, have also found that influencing events before they happen is also within many people's remit, the Daily Mail reported. They have based their findings on an analysis of a series of experiments, involving 1,000 volunteers.

In one experiment, students were shown a list of words to memorise. They were later asked to recall as many as they could and finally they were given a random selection of the words to type out. Not surprisingly, they were better at remembering some words than others. But spookily, these tended to be the words they would later be asked to type, suggesting a future event had affected their ability to remember.

In another experiment, the students were shown an image of two curtains on a computer screen and told one concealed an erotic picture. The students chose the curtain hiding the naughty picture slightly more often than could be explained away by chance.

Importantly, the position of the picture was randomly allotted by a computer which didn't make its decision until after the volunteer chose one curtain or the other. To believers in the paranormal, this suggests the students were actually influencing future events. In other words, they were able to see into the future , according to Bem, who carried out the study.
