Diane Powell, M.D, is an author, public speaker, researcher, and practicing neuropsychiatrist. Her education is extensive, and she’s worked with some of the best minds of the century, including several Nobel laureates. She studied biophysics and neuroscience during her undergraduate years, has worked in neurochemistry, and attended John Hopkins School of Medicine. She co-published research on the genetics of Alzheimer’s Disease with Marshal Folstein and did neuroscience research in Joseph Coyle’s laboratory. After receiving her medical degree in 1983, she stayed at Johns Hopkins to complete postdoctoral training in medicine, neurology, and psychiatry. In July 1987, Dr. Powell joined the faculty at Harvard Medical School, where she taught neuropsychiatry and gained experience in cross-cultural psychiatry and mind-body medicine. She moved in July 1989 to engage in molecular biology research at the University of California at San Diego during the Human Genome Project.
She has always been interested in human consciousness, particularly in the special abilities these gifted children have and how they are helping to grow our understanding about the mysteries of consciousness.
In January 1987 she trained for six months at The Institute of Psychiatry in London, England with Sir Michael Rutter, who was knighted for his work on autism.
This is a short summary of an impressive and lengthy CV, but it’s important to show that the list of credible researchers in this field long and growing. “Extended human capacities,” as the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) defines them, and parapsychology, are serious subjects.
Dr. Powell’s work with non-verbal autistic children has shown strong evidence for telepathic abilities. The video below is one example of a test she conducted with multiple nonverbal autistic children. This particular child achieved a 100 percent hit rate, and in total average, the children achieved a group hit rate of 90 percent.
Powell explains in the video that she wants to further study these children: “I want to go back and I want to film Haley under ideal scientific conditions. There are also several other children across the globe who demonstrate a similar phenomenon. I want to go and document them as well.”
More Evidence of Telepathy
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”
– Nikola Tesla
In the mid 1960s, Montague Ullman, MD, began a number of experiments at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York to test the hypothesis that people could be primed to dream about randomly selected material. In other words, they could choose what they wanted to dream about before going to sleep, and this could include anything, from artwork to movies to photographs and more. Shortly after these experiments began, Ullman was joined by Stanley Krippner, who holds an impressive background in the scientific study of dreams, psychology, and parapsychology. The experiments they conducted spanned more than 10 years, During the experiments, there was usually a “telepathic sender” and a “telepathic receiver.”

Dream telepathy suggests that human beings have the ability to communicate telepathically with another person while they are dreaming. And this isn’t a new concept, as scientific interest in telepathy dates back to the fathers of the psychoanalytic movement. Freud, for example, looked at the implications of telepathy on psychoanalytic thought.
More recently, in the mainstream scientific world, scientists developed the technology to communicate telepathically. This is not the same as true telepathy, as it is technologically assisted, but it still marks a stepping stone toward opening the minds of more people to the idea of telepathy in general. It’s almost comical how much evidence exists for this phenomenon, and it’s frustrating that modern day scientific definitions limit what we can accept as real, no matter how obvious the existence of something may sometimes be.

Here is another interview with Dr. Powell answering questions from students at the 57th Annual Convention of the Parapsychological Association, and below is another interesting, possible example of human telepathy in an autistic child seen by Dr. Powell.

Non-Material Science Is Important
Experiments like these have been subject to ridicule, but for no good reason. Internationally recognized scientists are constantly coming together to stress the importance of what is still commonly overlooked in the mainstream scientific community — the fact that matter (protons, electrons, photons, anything that has a mass) is not the only reality. We wish to understand the nature of our reality, but how can we do so if we are continually examining only physical systems? What about the role of non-physical systems, such as consciousness, or their interaction with physical systems (matter)?
Our modern day scientific methods are built upon the idea that we live in a completely material, physical world. This scientific point of view has obviously played an important role in shaping our understanding of reality, but at the same time it’s completely dominated mainstream academia. As a result, the scientific study and attention material phenomena deserve has been greatly hampered, and the scientific study of the mind continues to go neglected.
Our current scientific parameters have assisted us, but we are reaching a point where we must expand those parameters, and accept that it’s time to usher in the age of non-material science. The implications of this field are huge, but new discoveries bring with them the worry of what human beings will do with them. How we use our technology needs to change, and that can only occur if we open our minds up to a different view about the true nature of our reality.
