After writing a meta-analysis of researches on psi phenomena, psychology professor Etzel Cardena deemed it necessary to write a petition calling for a more thorough investigation of psi phenomena and other notable anomalies in consciousness research [A similar petition was written in the same year by the International Summit on Post-Materialist Science. To read its full text visit Manifesto For A Post-Materialist Science]. Cardena says that the validity of psi researches continue to be published in peer reviewed journals and several Nobel prizewinners have conducted researches of the same nature. Cardena says that evidences of psi phenomena must not be disregarded a priori without discussion in the scientific community.
