Links: Paranormalist Community

An important lesson of the Implicit Cosmology is that each of us is part of a collective of personalities which share the common goal of better understanding the nature of reality. While the Prime Imperative (to experience, understand and return that understanding to Source) is hypothetical, it provides important guidance for mindful living.

One way to focusing experience so that understanding can be gained, and popular wisdom can be avoided, is by keeping up to date with current thought of community leaders. The “Search Paranormalist Community” button will always bring you to this page from which you can search the websites listed below with one process.

Association for Skeptical Investigation

icon-organization  icon-blog

Some people are genuinely open-minded skeptics (small “s”). From the Association for Skeptical Investigation website:

This website is dedicated to countering the dogmatic and frequently ill-informed attacks leveled by self-styled skeptics on parapsychology and pioneering researchers in general.

We take the view that “my mind is made up – don’t confuse me with facts” is not a useful premise from which to conduct a reasoned debate.

As well as investigating skeptics, we look at ways in which scientific objectivity is compromised by vested interests, fraud, experimenter effects and merchants of doubt, who use skepticism as a weapon to further corporate interests.

We also explore current controversies and look at open-minded investigations, which use the scientific method to investigate the unknown.
