Does approaching death make our psychic abilities more acute?
According to British psychologist Keith Hearne, head of the Hearne
Research Organization in North Humberside, England, the answer may
To find out for sure, Hearne has begun 2 investigations of his own.
In the first study, terminally ill people are asked to take tests
that will rate their ESP capabilities. “We will pick out images
from cards or pictures,” he says. “Then we will attempt to transmit
the images to the terminally ill at specific times, probably twice a
day. The results will be plotted back from the moment of death,”
Hearne adds. “I expect to see an upward turn in psi as death
The second study will focus on memories and perceptions reported by
those who have been, for a moment at least, clinically dead. To test
hearing during death, for instance, Hearne’s group will ask a
hospital medical team to play random, prerecorded words and phrases
at the moment of death. If the patient revives, he or she will be
asked to recall the words.
Hearne admits it may be difficult to gain the cooperation of doctors
and hospital administrators. But he plans to circumvent objections
from the medical establishment “by appealing to the public at large.
To choose to participate is up to the individual’s own conscience,”
he says. “I know if I were dying, I would be only too happy to take
part in a parapsychological experiment.”
Hearne asks terminally ill people interested in participating in
psychic research to contact him at Box 84, Hull, North Humberside,
England, HU1 2E.
