Under Construction

Extra sensory perception is defined by the American Psychological Association (APA) Dictionary of Psychology as "Alleged awareness of external events by other means than the known sensory cannels. It includes telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and, more loosely psychokinesis.
Despite considerable research, the existence of any of these modalities remains highly controversial".

The term ESP was popularized by J. B. Rhine, who began investigating paranormal phenomena at Duke University in 1927.

When I did a google search on ESP communication experiments, I found a lot of books, "Multidimensional Mind: Remote Viewing and the Evolution of Intelligence" and articles like "Extrasensory Communication and Dreams", "Extra Sensory Perception (Esp) And Horses".

I am a skeptic, and not convinced about experiments with people in altered mental states, whether in meditation, dreams, hypnoses, or other.

However, I've heard several stories from rational, trustworthy friends and acquaintances, which can be described as ESP. The most convincing are ones where the sender was someone in a near death or death situation.

Others, including a personal experience, involved chance communication with another person where, in my case a topic poped into my head for no particular reason, and that topic had a unlikely significance to the other person.
