Reply To: What is ESP?


The Extrasensory Perception or ESP encompasses three types of perceptions, without the involvement of the channels of senses – the perception of impressions (thoughts, feelings, etc.) from one mind to another (subjective events); the perception of events associated with objects without the involvement of another mind (objective events); and the perception of future events. The commonly used terms for Extrasensory Perception (ESP) include the Ultra-perceptive Faculty, Paranormal Cognition, Super-sensory Perception, Intuition, and Sixth Sense.
