ABSTRACT: The impetus for this study was the findings of Spottiswoode showing that free-response anomalous cognition (AC) effect size appears to be associated with local sidereal time (LST) and that correlations between AC effect size and global geomagnetic field (GMF) fluctuations appear to vary with LST.
The design also allowed for exploration of the relationship between ESP scores and other variables such as personality factors, geomagnetism, and local sidereal time (LST).
ABSTRACT: The basis of the present study was findings by Spottiswoode (1997a, 1997b) showing that Anomalous Cognition (AC) effect size appears to be associated with Local Sidereal Time (LST) and that correlations between AC effect size and Global Geomagnetic Field (GMF) fluctuations appear to vary with LST.
