New Thinking Allowed

When I record video conversations with members of the P.A. for the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, I also post here. Many other interviews, relevant to parapsychology, with non-members can be viewed at www.newthinkingallowed.com

The Spiritual Implications of Parapsychology with Charles T. Tart

Charles T. Tart, PhD, is emeritus professor of psychology at the University of California, Davis, as well as the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. He is a past-president of the Parapsychological Association. He has published over 100 scientific papers in parapsychology. He is editor of several anthologies including Altered States of Consciousness, Transpersonal Psychologies, Mind at Large, and Body Mind Spirit: Exploring the Parapsychology of Spirituality. Books that he has authored include Psi: Scientific Studies in the Psychic Realm, States of Consciousness, The End of Materialism, Learning to Use Extrasensory Perception, On Being Stoned, Waking Up: Overcoming the Obstacles to Human Potential, and Open Mind – Discriminating Mind. His website is https://www.paradigm-sys.com/.

Here he shares his thoughts on how the scientific method can be applied to provide better answers than we currently have regarding the effectiveness of various spiritual practices for particular individuals. He notes that the data of parapsychology point us toward the realization that consciousness is capable of receiving information across time and space, independent of the limitations of the human organism. Parapsychology also provides insights into the possibility of human survival after death.
