state; the application of consciousness to parapsychology; physiological studies that investigate parapsychology at the unconscious level; the anomalies associated with distant healing; and expanding parapsychology research and knowledge.
For the past four years, Matmos has been conducting parapsychological experiments based off the classic ganzfeld
