You might enjoy this new book Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer. Some very good descriptions of how the creative process arises and how creativity does not fit into a linear, analytical mindset. Lehrer does not approach the area of remote viewing and non-local awareness, in fact, he explicitly stays away from it. But his discussion definitely moves the ball down the field.
However, one also wishes that Lehrer would look at some of the recent research concerning remote viewing, human-machine interactions at PEAR Labs, and presentience data that show that our imaginations may span more than just our right brains.
(Also take a look at this previous post concerning recent discoveries about human imagination.)
A new study, revealed by Scientific American, shows that people who believe they can learn from their mistakes and have a more positive mind-set towards their errors actually learn faster than people with a more negative point of view about mistakes. The researchers label this the “Oops Response” and say it is stronger in more positive-minded people. In essence, your beliefs about mistakes are a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” The “Oops Response” and Error Positivity in Learning.
From Michael Franklin, a Project Scientist working with Jonathan Schooler in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara: “We are looking for volunteers to participate in a new online precognition experiment. The user will predict the outcome of an online roulette spin. The actual experiment takes about 30 minutes to complete.” In order to keep track of where subjects are coming from, after the experiment is initiated there is a screen where you can enter an experiment code — Please enter the code ‘CrystalMind‘. The precognition experiment can be accessed here. The magazine New Scientist featured this story in the Jan 18, 2012 issue.
(Please note, this experiment is creating aggregate, group data. You will not be given your results at the end of test (sorry), but hopefully we’ll find out the group result when enough tests have been completed!)

A forthcoming article in the Journal of Consumer Research by Michael Tuan Pham of Columbia Business School, et al., shows that people who trust their feelings make better predictions than those who don’t. Read more about Feeling the Future: the Emotional Oracle Effect. The authors suggest that people who are in touch with their feelings have a “privileged window” into their subconscious mind’s knowledge, that analytical thinking is incapable of providing.

Please sign the new UFO Disclosure petition on the Whitehouse.gov website. The petition is about getting the Obama White House to disclose the truth about President Clinton’s and Laurance S. Rockefeller’s joint efforts to reveal UFO information to the public. Read the letter from Mr. Rockefeller to President Clinton recommending a declassification of federal government Extraterrestrial and UFO documents. Also see this letter from Rockefeller addressed to one of Clinton’s Science Advisors.

A retired Chilean Air Force General Ricardo Bermudez has given a detailed report in February, 2012, on military and civilian sightings of UFOs in his country. He calls for greater international coordination to research the nature and origin of this persistent, yet mysterious phenomena. Includes the multiple aircraft “Pelican Case” and photos of the unidentified craft.
