The Case of the Yellow Wheat Field: A Dream-State Explanation of a Broadcast Telepathic Dream

Charles T. Tart, Ph.D. and James Fadiman

The purpose of this paper is to report an unusual case of telepathic dreaming and to explore possible reasons for its occurrence. The case was unusual in several respects: (1) it was apparently a broadcast telepathic dream in the sense that the agent was semiconsciously attempting to influence several friends simultaneously; (2) the broadcast dream was relatively lucid, in the sense that the dreamer was conscious of dreaming; and (3) the telepathic information, contained almost wholly in this dream, was followed by an explanatory dream telling how the telepathic influence in the original dream came about.

A previous telepathic dream of Mr. Able's has been described elsewhere.3 In the eight years since that earlier dream, Mr. Able has had a number to telepathic dream experiences, many of which involved him as agent, rather than receiver. Most were instances in which his wife had an impressive dream which made no sense at all to her until Mr. Able found that it explained a number of elements of his previous day's experience about which he had not told her, although he had intended to.

The other five persons in this case have an intellectual acquaintance with parapsychological literature but little or no personal paranormal experiences of their own.
