New research on the Psi Track


Dr Tellefsen and I hoped that our report on the Psi Track would inspire other researchers to do similar experiments. For many years, nothing seemed to happen. I did get messages from different countries of groups who had been successful, but nothing was formally reported.

Sceptics have argued that our field work was not enough to give any scientific interest to the Psi Track. Only laboratory test under stringent double-blind conditions would be satisfying, they said. I can partly agree. Our aim was not to once and for all “prove” the Psi Track. Rather, our first question was: Is there a phenomenon to investigate? Second, does it work? We were satisfied that the Psi Track did work to find hidden objects under field conditions. Several spontaneous reports have also confirmed that it can be used to find objects that were lost under real-life conditions. So I hold the concluding opinion in my second report still valid: Until confirmatory studies are reported, the psi track may continue to be regarded as scientifically unproven but useful in practice.

However, recently Professor Friedrich Balck of the Technological University in Clausthal, Germany has reported extensive work on the Psi Track. Here are links to his primary report, a second report where the Psi Track is also discussed, and three related works. 
So far these reports are available only in German, but Professor Balck has kindly provided  English translation of important
parts of the text. (Not yet in the pdf. article, which is coming later in English translation.) 




The following report in English gives a general view of Professor Balck’s fascinating work on “biosensors”:


Even if the Psi Track is still not proven in the strict scientific sense, it has shown itself to be practically useful in many cases. It should be of interest that also professional treasure hunters have used it with success. This is the subject of next page:
