May, who specializes in anomalous cognition research and was the former director of the Star Gate program, and Marwaha, a researcher in Indian psychology and the synthesis of the cognitive sciences and anomalous cognition research, provide reports of the US government program Star Gate, which researched the validity of extrasensory perception and parapsychology and their applications to problems of US national security, and present its scientific results from the data: establishing the validity of remote viewing, identifying the characteristics of remote viewing targets including their entropic properties, the establishment of a heuristic model, and the creation of a comprehensive model of precognition grounded in a signal model based in physics and the neurosciences.
Interest is likely to continue increasing among researchers, including the organization of new research labs at the University of Cironingen (Heymans Anomalous Cognition Group) and the University of California at Santa Barbara (Theoretical and Applied Neurocausality Laboratory).

Anomalous cognition is defined here as the acquisition of information through non-sensory means, or ESP.
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.
The initial name for our model was "multiphasic model of anomalous cognition.
In the Star Gate program, we noticed that a class of anomalous cognition "spying" missions never failed.
Anomalous Cognition is a "must have" for the professional who intends to do RV experiments.
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.
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.
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.
