After Decades of Psychic Research, Dr. Marilyn Schlitz Shares Take-away Lessons

After Decades of Psychic Research, Dr. Marilyn Schlitz Shares Take-away Lessonsrecent article published in the online magazine, Upliftdiscusses Marilyn Schlitz’s parapsychology experiments. Dr. Marilyn Schlitz has conducted some of the most prominent parapsychology experiments in history. In the lab, she has explored psi phenomena like the ability of a person’s thoughts to physically affect another person’s body.

She has taught at Trinity University, Stanford University, Harvard Medical Centers, and currently at Silicon Valley’s Sofia University. She has lectured at institutions including the United Nations and the Smithsonian Institution.

Schlitz has been instrumental in making inroads for parapsychology into mainstream science—in starting to bridge the gap between believers and skeptics. But even if skeptics continue to deny the existence of psi phenomena, Schlitz said, parapsychology studies can still teach much about humankind in general. Those lessons are beyond belief in, or denial of, psi.

Psi research can teach us about the philosophy of science and how people’s worldviews influence their behaviors.
