An Experiment in Dream Telepathy with The Grateful Dead
Brooklyn, Mainmonides, 1971. An early report on experiments in telepathy conducted in 1971 and "suggested by Jerry Garcia," in which randomly selected images were beamed to subjects miles away, from the audiences at six Grateful Dead concerts. Co-author Stanley Krippner was, among other things, one of the leading researchers into dream telepathy and telepathy in general ("remote viewing"). He received the American Psychological Association [APA] Award for Distinguished Lifetime Contributions to Humanistic Psychology in 2013, one of many such awards he has earned over the years. He and Montague Ullman, along with Alan Vaughn, published Dream Telepathy: Experiments in Nocturnal ESP in 1973. A variant version of this report is transcribed on Krippner's website, where he writes "The results of this study were published in a medical journal in 1973." This report is dated 1971, the year the experiments were conducted; and it appears to be the earliest formal presentation of information about this study, its circumstances, and its results. 18 pages, photocopy, with one staple, near fine.
