Chinese Traditional Culture and Research of Parapsychology

Yi-Fang Chang

Abstract


This is first academic research book on parapsychology published in P.R.China. It tries to combines the Chinese traditional culture and the modern science by a new view. This book includes mainly following contents: A well-known scientist Brian D. Josephson (Professor of Department of Physics, University of Cambridge) agrees, its “String Theory, Universal Mind, and the Paranormal” is first article. Based on the modern science, he proposed a model consistent with string theory for so-called paranormal phenomena such as extra-sensory perception (ESP), in which the mathematical skills are assumed to derive from a special ‘mental vacuum state’, whose origin is explained on the basis of anthropic and biological arguments, taking into account the need for the informational processes associated with such a state to be of a life-supporting character. ESP is then explained in terms of shared ‘thought bubbles’ generated by the participants out of the mental vacuum state. This paper is correlated with a universal Mind or an extended mind, and concludes with a critique of arguments sometimes made claiming to ‘rule out’ the possible existence of paranormal phenomena.
