FBI Vault | Extrasensory Perception

Zener Cards
Zener cards used in the early twentieth century for experimental research into ESP.

‘The Vault’ is an ‘electronic reading room’ publicly available on the website operated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

According to the FBI website, The Vault contains more than 2000 declassified secret documents including a category specifically for ‘Unexplained Phenomenon‘.

Included in this category is a cable concerning the investigation of Extrasensory Perception; otherwise known as ESP.

According to Wikipedia:

Extrasensory perception (ESP) involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind. The term was coined by Sir Richard Burton, and adopted by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities such as telepathy and clairvoyance, and their trans-temporal operation as precognition or retrocognition. ESP is also sometimes casually referred to as a sixth sense, gut instinct or hunch, which are historical English idioms. The term implies acquisition of information by means external to the basic limiting assumptions of science, such as that organisms can only receive information from the past to the present.

The FBI documents, now declassified, included memorandums concerning the the study of ESP.

File Number 63-4036 included a memorandum that stated “Should his [William Foos] claims be well-foundedthere is no limit to the value which could accure to the FBI – complete and undetectable access to mail, the diplomatic pouch, visual access to buildings – the possibilities are unlimited insofar as law enforcement and counter-intelligence are concerned“.

According to the FBI Memorandum, Mr Foos, a resident of Ricdmond, VA, commenced the study of ESP in 1955 and began experimenting with his family.  Foos claimed to have achieved amazing success and was attracting publicity over claims that he could teach the blind to see.

The following document is the FBI Memorandum dated July 16, 1957:
