A Paranormal Psychology (PNP) View by Tres Mali Scott on TMSC Consulting Services, LLC Psychic Division

The field of psychology considers cognition——-how we acquire knowledge.  The word cognition comes from the Latin cognoscere meaning “to know”. Wilhelm Wundt and E.B Titchener state it is conscious experiences that are:

  1. sensations
  2. images
  3. feelings

William James asserted, “the first fact is that thinking of some sort goes on.”

Philosophers including, Plato, Descartes, and Kent believe that some knowledge is innate.

Cognition is the manifestation of Human Intelligence:

  • Problem Solving
  • Reasoning
  • Decision Making
  • Judgement
  • One’s thoughts and other mental states communicated
  • Mental representations of the external
  • Learning process by which a person acquires knowledge

Perception——-is forming mental representations of the objects that give rise to sensory experiences.

Sensation——-is the detecting the presence of stimuli.

There are names of psychic and paranormal phenomena that have the word “cognition”,  Precognition and Retro-cognition. Parapsychologist for Telepathy call it Latent Telepathy (deferred telepathy) and Precognitive Telepathy.
