In the post titled "Edge Science" , I mentioned an interesting essay on precognitive dreams, which leads back to the foundations of PSI Theory, specifically to Arthur Koestler, a name you may or not be familiar with. I thought some may be interested in a short series highlighting a few of the pioneering theoreticians and scientists who have nothing in common with the interests of the great unwashed of popular culture when it comes to the current spate of paranormal programming aka infotainment that has little or no grounding in much beyond archaic superstition in the 21st Century. Perhaps not surprisingly, if you are familiar with this blog, these are gentlemen whom I admire for their courage of exploration. Many of the regular subscribers to this blog as well as myself are haunted by visions of what we do not know regarding our own existence, as temporal as this situation may be, and this was also a chief feature of Koestler's personality, and he was one of the handful of pioneers and theoreticians of possible conceptual models to pin anomalies for further exploration by creating a path rather than an explanation. An accurate summary of Koestler's conceptual modeling is found here:
If you read the biography of Koestler and his theories of the paranormal, you may want to visit http://www.koestler-parapsychology.psy.ed.ac.uk/index.html wherein a research group based in the Psychology Department at the University of Edinburgh.that continues his work.
