Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP)

Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) is a very interesting topic in Parapsychology. It is commonly termed by general mass as ‘Sixth Sense’ affirming presence of another sense apart from our common 5 senses. It is said that if someone possesses this sense, he or she might exist on an alternate reality and he or she is power-packed with some astonishingly super-power of sense the common reality through different perspective.

The term "ESP" was first coined in 1870 by Sir Richard Burton. ESP illustrates various dimensions including telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, remote viewing and clairaudience. Though the existence of ESP and other paranormal activities are doubtful, but this couldn’t stop the enthusiastic researchers to continue their experiments on this aspect both at systematic and non-systematic level. And more interestingly, there are organizations, like James Randi Educational Foundation (, Federation of Indian Rationalists Association ( who are strongly skeptical about the views defined in ESP, and have announced a REAL BIG PRIZE to someone who could possibly pass their ESP tests. Interesting indeed!
