The Parapsychology Revolution: What a Century of Psychical Research Reveals about the Powers of the Mind

For generations, academic research into ESP, telepathy, precognition, retrocausality, telekinesis, and global consciousness has produced repeatable, rigorously juried statistical evidence of extra-physical and extra-sensory powers of thought.

The case is closed: intelligence is non-local, causative, and capable of spanning beyond boundaries of ordinary senses, distance, and time.

In this digital event, historian of alternative spirituality and popular voice of esoteric ideas Mitch Horowitz explores the extraordinary implications of parapsychological findings. Current understandings of the mind, Mitch argues, are reshaping our conception of what it means to be human as much as Darwinism did during the Victorian era. What does this mean for you as a twenty-first century seeker and thinker?

Mitch examines the formation of modern parapsychology, its incontrovertible strides, its parallel insights to ancient traditions such as Hermeticism, and considers the evidence—both for and against—its data. He explores how psychical research interplays with the fields of quantum mechanics, string theory, inter-dimensionality, placebo studies, and neuroplasticity to open a new window on human agency.

“Thought itself,” Mitch argues, “is a demonstrable force. It is possible that in our generation we may no longer need ritual and ceremony to externalize thought. The very understanding that thought possesses causative and extra-physical qualities may be enough to help us navigate and use it.”

The Parapsychology Revolution provides you with a new estimate of human nature—and of yourself.

Mitch Horowitz is a historian of alternative spirituality and one of today’s most literate voices of esoterica, mysticism, and the occult. He is among the few occult writers whose work touches the bases of academic scholarship, national journalism, and subculture cred. Mitch is a writer-in-residence at the New York Public Library, lecturer-in-residence at the Philosophical Research Society in Los Angeles, and a PEN Award-winning historian whose books include Occult America; One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life; and The Miracle Club. The Washington Post says Mitch “treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today’s raised-voice discussions.” He has discussed alternative spirituality across the national media and is collaborating with Emmy-nominated director Ronni Thomas on a feature documentary about the occult classic The Kybalion, shot on location in Egypt. Mitch received the Walden Award for Interfaith/Intercultural Understanding. The Chinese government has censored his work. Visit him at https://www.mitchhorowitz.com/
