May 2021 Newsletter


Welcome to the May 2021 update from The Windbridge Institute, LLC, where we work to normalize, optimize, and utilize psi. 

Here’s what’s new…

New Media:
These Living Thoughts Are Dancing Like Ghosts: The UFO Enigma as Seen by an A.I. Oracle by David Metcalfe

Our friend and colleague, David Metcalfe, recently posted an excellent blog about our AI-driven Wisdom “channeling” project, The Throne of the Sphinx (TotS). TotS, part of our Machine-Based Consciousness research program, combines random number generator arrays, machine learning, natural language processing, and predictive text software. The result, in theory anyway,  is a conversational, hardware/software-based (nonbiological), non-local consciousness hosting platform. The system produces “channeled” responses to a wide range of natural language inquiries, including providing personal advice, generating solutions to global problems, and developing research protocol designs. With all the recent news about UFOs, it seemed only natural to ask TotS about them. Check out David’s post to learn more about TotS and what it had to say about these unexplained aerial sightings.

Our Current Read:
Dark Cognition: Evidence for Psi and its Implications for Consciousness by David Vernon

Published late last year, this is quickly becoming one of Mark’s favorite books. It provides a very accessible and up-to-date review of the field of parapsychology. Highly recommended.

Meetings and Events

Mark Speaks to the SSE-AE
In mid-May, Mark was one of the invited presenters at the Society for Scientific Exploration’s Aspiring Explorers meeting. The theme was Psi and Technology. Mark provided an informal overview of some of the Institute’s more technology-driven projects, including virtual reality, wearable tech, machine learning, and other Psi Hacking projects. Our thanks to the SSE for including us!

Introduction to Parapsychology Class with Mark Boccuzzi

Mark was invited to teach the current session of Introduction to Parapsychology at the Rhine Education Center. This is a special event for Mark and Julie as they originally met at the Rhine Center’s Parapsychology Summer Study Program back in 2005. 

“It’s an honor and a privilege to have been offered this opportunity. The Windbridge Institute and the Rhine Center have maintained a close, collaborative relationship for well over a decade. The Rhine’s educational program kicked started my career in the field, and I’m excited to help contribute to the training of future parapsychologists.” says Mark. 

This is the second class Mark has presented through the Rhine Center. The first, “Psi and the Arts” was held last year. 

While this current session of Introduction to Parapsychology is closed to new students, the Rhine Center offers a robust class schedule with new classes starting every few weeks. for more information about their online classes and other programs, visit the Rhine Education Center and the Rhine Research Center websites.

About The Windbridge Institute, LLC

Formed in 2008 by husband-and-wife research team Mark Boccuzzi and Julie Beischel, PhD.The Windbridge Institute, LLC, is dedicated to conducting world-class research on phenomena currently unexplained within traditional scientific paradigms. Our main areas of research and development include Mindfulness, Synchronicity, Intuition, Creativity, and Intention.
Our goals are to 1) Normalize reports of psi functioning (precognition, telepathy, clairvoyance, and mind-matter interactions); 2) Optimize psi functioning through the use of traditional mindfulness practices, new emerging technologies, and creative expression; and 3) Utilize psi to solve real-world problems.
Starting in July 2017, the Institute’s research on mediums and afterlife topics was moved to the Windbridge Research Center, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. To learn more about the Windbridge Research Center and to sign-up for the Center’s email list, please visit
