Despite decades of parapsychological research, psi phenomena have not yet been convincingly explained in terms of modern physics, which is probably one of the reasons why the scientific community is still mostly disregarding them. In the past, it has been theorized that psi is electromagnetic in nature, its transmission occurring through some sort of electromagnetic waves. That theory has been abandoned. It does not explain phenomena such as precognition and retrocognition, nor have any such waves been detected in tests involving, for example, e.g. telepathy or remote viewing. Nevertheless, reviewing both academic and non-academic resources, one finds substantial evidence for the electromagnetic nature of psi, in particular in mind-over-matter type experiments. Some particularly experienced martial artists can voluntarily produce electromagnetic fields with extraordinary characteristics. These include field amplitudes high enough to cause the electrical breakdown of air (i.e. >30 kV/cm), voltage reaching tens and even hundreds of kilovolts (i.e. 104-105 V), frequencies anywhere between VLF and VHF (100-1013 Hz) and power density that can melt some polymers and ignite some flammable substances. The electromagnetic fields produced by these adepts can also carry information. Some people can subconsciously emulate the complex frequency encoding of a variety of remote-control signals. However, the transmission of the electromagnetic fields seems to occur through an unusual kind of quantum teleportation rather than ordinary wave propagation.
Parapsychology has been traditionally ignored by mainstream science. Could it be time for that to change?
It has been given multiple names. The most used ones are variants of universal or cosmic consciousness or mind. Psychologist Carl Jung called it the Collective Unconscious. One of the fathers of quantum mechanics, Erwin Schrödinger was obsessed with the concept of Brahman used in the Sanskrit writings of the Upanishads. The physicist, engineer, and inventor Nikola Tesla and the philosopher Erwin Laszlo popularized the terms Akasha, also borrowed from ancient Sanskrit philosophy. The Chinese call it Tao. Even the concept of God, present in every culture appears to refer to the same entity.
