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".
Evidence of Macroscopic Quantum Entanglement During Double Quantitative Electroencephalographic Measurements of Friends vs Strangers

One indication of entanglement between two particles is a change in parity or spin in one when the other is changed in order to maintain constancy of the system. Our experiment was designed to discern if this phenomenon occurred at the macroscopic level between the electroencephalographic activities of brains of pairs of people, separated by about 75 m, with various degrees of “entanglement”. About 50% of the variance of the "simultaneous" electroencephalographic power was shared between pairs of brains. Pairs of strangers were positively correlated within alpha and gamma bands within the temporal and frontal lobes. However the power levels within the alpha and theta bands were negatively correlated for pairs of people who had a protracted history of interaction. The latter result might be considered support for the hypothesis of macroscopic entanglement.
