PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up.  But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on?  The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser).  So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

The Paranormal Dream and Man's Pliable Future

Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.

My personal belief, then, is that our lives are not contained within passing time, a single track along which we hurry to oblivion. We exist in more than one dimension of Time….We have a larger portion of Time—and more and stranger adventures with it—than conventional or positivist thought allows.

J. B. Priestley

I. Studies Of Precognition

In recent years the scientific community has become increasingly interested in such paranormal phenomena as psychokinesis, telepathy, clairvoyance and precognition. Of these, telepathy has been accorded the widest acceptance, partly because it is supported by the greatest weight of evidence and partly because it least offends common-sense notions about the workings of the universe. In the case of precognition, the situation is somewhat different. Precognition, man's purported knowledge about future events, offends traditional notions of cause and effect as well as traditional concepts about the nature of time.

The folklore and history of every culture contain tales and records of soothsayers, prophets, mediums, and “psychic sensitives” who have correctly predicted events which could not have been inferred from known data.
