A Psychological Perspective on Extrasensory Perception

  • 601 Accesses

Abstract

The present opinion proposes a novel hypothesis on extrasensory perception (ESP). The essence of ESP is that false internal stimulations are mistaken as external objective sitmulations which enter through sensory organs, while real external objective stimulations are mistaken as perceptions which do not result from sensory organs when one is in deep hallucinations.
