The New York Times reports that the PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) lab is shutting down.
“The laboratory has conducted studies on extrasensory perception and telekinesis from its cramped quarters in the basement of the university’s engineering building since 1979. Its equipment is aging, its finances dwindling.”

That’s unfortunate. I’ve been meaning to dig around for more programmes akin to PEAR, or within the ecology of Dr Michael Persinger’s so-called “God helmet,” developed out of Laurentian University, Ontario.
I’ll post if I dig anything more up.

Unfortunate but necessary. PEAR was a great foundation for all the studies that are happening now. Their studies have morphed into something bigger. With the rapid advancements made in quantum physics and nanotechnology; esp & metaphysical hypothesis’ are being taken a little more seriously. I.E.- How about that brain scan that can read people’s intentions?
