The Rhine Research Center, founded as the Duke Parapsychology Lab in 1935, is the oldest operating parapsychology lab in the United States. From their early experiments with ESP Cards (or Zener Cards), the Rhine provided a foundation for controlled laboratory experiments into the nature of consciousness and the limits of human abilities. Dozens of research scientists studied parapsychology at the Rhine including William Roll, Jim Carpenter, Charles Honorton, Chris Roe, Christine Simmonds-Moore, John Palmer, and many more.
Rhine Executive Director John G. Kruth will lead us through the history of the Rhine and describe how the research progressed from early studies of mediums to extensive studies of ESP into the current research on healing arts, human-machine PK, and the human biofield. This dynamic presentation will cover the history of the Rhine and track the field of parapsychology through to the present day.
