ANOMALOUS COGNITION (AC): A form of information transfer in which all known sensory stimuli are absent; that is, some individuals are able to gain access to information by an as yet unknown process; also known as remote viewing (RV) and clairvoyance.
1990) first applied fuzzy sets for the analysis of anomalous cognition (then called remote viewing) data and photographic targets; however their first attempt was cumbersome and the universal set of elements (USE)--all possible elements that might describe any of the target photographs--contained 130 separate elements, thus making it difficult to encode any given photograph.
Unfortunately, the workshop came to an end before we could complete the target pool construction and begin collecting anomalous cognition data.
We developed a natural site-target pool as part of a test of the hypothesis that changes of thermodynamic entropy at a natural target site will enhance the quality of the anomalous cognition of that site.
The reason that some informed skeptics do agree with it is that the statement does not say of even imply that anomalous cognition (AC) (2) exists.
Thus, until we can begin to define what anomalous cognition is rather than to provide a long list of things that it is not, and deal with the trap that we tend to ascribe to psi things we shouldn't, then our discipline has a fundamental structural problem that is difficult to resolve--at least in the PK domain.
While trying to understand the physical mechanisms of information transfer in anomalous cognition (AC), I analyzed published information on remote viewing and ganzfeld responses in relation to local sidereal time (LST), that is, the position of the subjects on the earth relative to the fixed stars in the sky.
5 [+ or -] 1 h LST, as compared to their controls, and the reduced size of this effect at 18 [+ or -] 1 h LST appear to agree with the relationship reported by Spottiswoode (1997a) between human anomalous cognition (AC) and local sidereal time.
