Our Picks for the Best of 2020

About the Best of List

Each year countless books, videos, and other materials are published under the heading of “parapsychology.” We spend a good amount of time reviewing these materials. In 2018 we decided to start highlighting some of our favorite new contributions. Our annual ‘Best of’ list acknowledges books, published research, films, and open-access resources from other researchers and organizations that are related to the Institute’s mission. The selection process is based on our personal assessments as to how the materials further the mission of the Institute and help move the field of parapsychology forward. We do not accept any paid endorsements.


The Selection Effect: How Consciousness Shapes Reality by Herb Mertz

From the Publisher:

“The Selection Effect explores a personal training process that allows consciousness to influence real-world physical events in ways that cannot be attributed to brain activity alone. Rigorously backed by data from world-class institutions, it describes findings that challenge our current thinking about consciousness, the mind, and the nature of reality.

The more we come to understand the nature of our own minds, the more we can change our fundamental relationship to the world in ways beneficial to ourselves and our species.”

A Short History of (Nearly) Everything Paranormal: Our Secret Powers Telepathy, Clairvoyance & Precognition by Terje G. Simonsen 

From the Publisher:

“This is the most entertaining and broad survey of the paranormal ever made, combining forgotten lore, evidence from parapsychological experiments, and the testament of scientists, archaeologists, anthropologists, psychologists, physicists, and philosophers, and also quite a few celebrities. Exploring the possibility that paranormal phenomena may be and that some most likely are objectively real, this travelogue through the twilight zone of human consciousness is both scientifically rigorous and extremely entertaining.”

Open-Access Research

Mind Control at Distance of an Electronic Device: A Proof-of-Concept Preregistered Study. Tressoldi, P. E., Pederozoli, L., Prati, E., & Semenzato, L. (2020) Journal of Scientific Exploration34(2), 233-245. https://doi.org/10.31275/20201573

From the Abstract:

This study was aimed at verifying the possibility of mentally influencing from a distance an electronic device based on a True Random Number Generator (TRNG). Although the effect of distant mental interaction is still weak, we believe that the results of this study represent a proof-of-concept for the construction of electronic devices susceptible to distant mental influence.
