The Rhines always felt that the answer to telepathy would be found in a better understanding of consciousness. When I talked to Robert Jahn and Brenda Dunne of Princeton’s PEAR laboratory, now the International Consciousness Research Laboratories, they talked about information filters and the need for science to incorporate an information field theory. Their ideas felt like a natural progression of the Rhine’s thinking.
From the email about Filters and Reflections: Perspectives on Reality: “This new book is a series of essays related and responding to the PEAR laboratory publication, Sensors, Filters, and the Source of Reality. This anthology presents an assortment of perspectives on how consciousness creates its experiential reality through an array of subjective “filters” by which “we endeavor to infer, either intuitively or analytically, composite functional models of our world and of ourselves.” Taken together, the individual contributions serve as an array of lenses that amplify the seminal essay.”
