Researching Anomalous Cognition, an interview with Edwin C. May

Physicist Edwin C. May is the recipient of a Lifetime Career Award from the Parapsychological Association. He explains why he felt the need to coin the term, “anomalous cognition,” to refer to phenomena previously known as extrasensory perception, clairvoyance, or remote viewing. He then describes a variety of research questions that concerned him – such as how to find the most talented subjects and under what conditions did they best perform. His research suggests that about one percent of the population is capable of highly accurate and relatively consistent remote viewing performance.
