Director of Laurentian University's Consciousness Research Laboratory. Notable for his work in the field of neurotheology. Michael A. Persinger is a cognitive neuroscience researcher and university professor with over 200 peer-reviewed publications. He is primarily notable for his experimental work in the field of neurotheology, work which has come under increasing fire in recent years. Much of his work focuses on the commonalities that exist between the sciences, and aims to integrate fundamental concepts of various branches of science. In 1974 Persinger proposed that extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves may be able to carry telepathic and clairvoyant information. Persinger has published reports of rudimentary 'telepathic' communication between pairs of subjects in the laboratory. He has also published increases in remote viewing accuracy of remote viewer Ingo Swann. During the 1980s he stimulated people's temporal lobes artificially with a weak magnetic field to see if he could induce a religious state. He claimed that the field could produce the sensation of "an ethereal presence in the room".
A Neuroquantologic Approach to How Human Thought Might Affect the Universe
Michael A. Persinger, Stanley A. Koren, Ghislaine F. Lafreniere
The cerebral processes of observation and measurement are associated with the action potential whose energy of about 10-20J matches the magnitude associated with electric forces between ions on the neuronal membrane's surface. Both intrinsic gravitational forces and the density of force within the domain of Planck's length indicate the width of a membrane is resonant with all space within the universe. The required disparities near the velocity of light to explain the discrepancy between the Compton (wavelength) width and the classical width of the electron is about 10-20J. The calculations and their resultant hypotheses in this paper suggest that human thought, as the wave form associated with action potentials, might affect matter and that the act of observation might dissociate fundamental forces anywhere and anytime within the universe due to entanglement because of the paradoxical time of expansion of Planck's length from the smallest to largest increments of space.
