It is important to note that much of
the information given in this section is in regards to current experiments
being conducted in parapsychology, which is still an emerging science.
While the results of these experiments are a far cry from the spectacular
cases of psychic phenomena often reported, one must keep in mind
that these are the very results that the established sciences are
looking for: results that are measurable, quantifiable, and can
be demonstrated--and repeated--in a laboratory setting. These results
undeniably show that something is happening, even if parapsychologists
themselves are as yet unsure as to what that is.
Currently, there are several theories
being exchanged regarding the nature of psi, but these have not
yet been proven. This section's purpose is to give the reader an
overview of the various subjects which constitute psi phenomena,
describe the more popular research methods, detail the results that
are being achieved, and share some of the many theories that are
being formulated to explain these results.

Out-of-Body Experience (OBE)
