Course Description


This 4-week online course will explore the phenomenon of Presentiment and how this phenomenon impacts the scientific view of time.  Presentiment is an unconscious form of precognition that has demonstrated that the physical body and sometimes the mind respond to events that have not yet happenned. 

Feeling the future, precognitive memory, physical responses to future events, and how studying after a test can improve your test scores.  Scientific studies that have explored these events call into question our perception of time.  Based on these studies, this course will explore theories of time in physics and philosophy.

Course Description

This fun 8 week academic course will explore how popular culture is influenced by psi experiences, beliefs, and misconceptions about the phenomena.  More importantly, it will explore how media representations of psi influence the public's misconceptions and beliefs in and about psi, even to the point of affecting people's perceptions of the experiences when they happen. Research in Parapsychology and the observed phenomena of psi will be compared with representations of psi as it appears in literature (including comic books), both scripted and reality TV, film, radio, and many other sources on the internet.

This course will involve watching films and clips of TV shows as well as readings in popular literature and comics in order to facilitate the academic discussion of psi and the media.
