Short Bio:

Mark is an associate member of the Parapsychological Association.

His research interests include applied psi, mediumship, animal psi, photographic anomalies, instrumental transcommunication (ITC), data visualization and sonification,  developing transformative VR/AR experiences, and applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to psi research.

He is a recipient of a Parapsychological Association’s Gilbert Roller Fund grant for his work on applying thermographic imaging to the study of physical mediumship.

Mark is the author of Visualizing Intention: Art informed by science.

He drinks way too much coffee.

Some Current Projects:

Applied Intuition: Danger Avoidance Testing and Training Using Real-time, Multiuser, 3D Simulations (link opens video)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Dog’s Tale

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Dog’s Tale is a short game that lets the player direct Barkley the Dog through a forest in an attempt to find as many of Barkley’s lost toys as possible. In order to find the maximum number of toys, players will need to rely solely on their intuition. The game was specifically designed to be slow-paced and meditative. This approach allows players to take their time as they direct Barkley along the path and pay attention to how they feel when they make accurate intuitive choices.

Psi Mediated Experiment Effects Assessment Tool


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Flash app allows researchers to collect data about their attitudes towards specific experiments. The data can then be used to find correlations between experimenter desires, expectancies, enthusiasm, and beliefs, and experimental results. However, the limitation is that this (or any) self-assessment tool may not be accurate as experimenters may provide false information or information based on their explicit beliefs. This survey does not capture any implicit bias which may result in psi effects that impact experimental outcomes. To address this, a 360 review approach which includes all project stakeholders is recommended.

This research was first presented:
