The Parapsychological Association, one of the 262 affiliated societies of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), recently received a generous donation from Mrs. Marion Roller to establish a new endowment for research. The Gilbert Roller Fund supports scientific investigations into macroscopic psychokinetic phenomena such as those reported in sitter-groups, séances, and poltergeist activity, and/or theoretical approaches to help explain the nature of such large-scale physical effects.
Between now and May 1, 2009, Mrs. Roller will match, dollar for dollar, any donations made to the Gilbert Roller Fund to support this important line of research. Traditionally most of the modest support for parapsychological research has come from individuals and foundations with the vision and courage needed to support science on the cutting edge. Your contributions will enable qualified researchers with professional knowledge of past investigations of this type to continue to explore reports of large-scale psychokinetic phenomena.
The Parapsychological Association is the premier international professional society for scientists and scholars interested in exceptional human experiences. Members are engaged in the empirical and theoretical investigation of a wide range of phenomena, including those labeled telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and evidence suggestive of survival of consciousness after bodily death.
