Dream Telepathy in Brooklyn: An Illustrated Presentation with Dr. Stanley Krippner

Posted in > EVENTS by David on August 28, 2013


Gráfico4Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 8:00pm, Dr. Stanley Krippner will discuss the pioneering experiments in “telepathic dreaming” that he and Dr. Montague Ullman carried out at Brooklyn’s Maimonides Medical Center in the 1960s and 1970s. A dreamer would sleep in a soundproof room while his or her rapid eye movements and brain waves were monitored. Meanwhile, a staff member would be in a distant room attempting to “transmit” contents of an art print to the dreamer. These attempts were statistically evaluated, with results exceeding chance expectancy. The telepathic effect was especially strong during period of low geomagnetic activity. Examples will be given, including a six-night series in which the “transmission” came from the audiences of rock concerts by the Grateful Dead in Port Chester, New York.
