Definitions of Paranormal Activities
The following pages contain common terms and paranormal definitions used in parapsychology. The definitions are taken from a number of sources including the Glossary of Terms Used in Parapsychology (Puente Publications) written by the Australian parapsychologist, Michael Thalbourne.
Definitions are always a tricky area to deal with and, as often happens, we assume that words have the same meaning for all people. Similarly, we sometimes assume we know the meaning of words in common usage.
To ensure there is less misunderstanding (and for those who are interested) the stricter academic definitions of psi terms are on the next pages.
