Dream Telepathy: Experiments in Nocturnal Extrasensory Perception
Hampton Roads Pub., Jun 1, 2003 - Philosophy - 274 pages
Interest in dreams is as old as humankind. Interest in dream telepathy -- the idea that we can influence others' dreams and communicate through them -- has been around almost as long. Dream Telepathy is Montague Ullman and Stanley Krippner's 1973 report on their ten years of research and experimentation with the human power to communicate across the barriers of time, space, and sleep.
Ullman, a psychoanalyst, and Krippner, a psychologist, were the heads of the dream-research team at Maimonides Medical Center's Dream Laboratory in New York throughout the 1960s and early 1970s. Using graduate student researchers and volunteer subjects from the community, Ullman and Krippner engineered experiments wherein the researchers focused on a selection of art prints while, in another room, the subjects slept and dreamt.
Meeting with varying degrees of success depending upon the research pair, subjects reported astonishing things, often dreaming their own uncannily accurate interpretation of the artistic scene the researchers were attempting to project to them. Dream Telepathy proposes the invaluable theoretical implications of such experimentation, and presupposes the use of dream telepathy in all areas of paranormal studies.
