Conjuring up Philip: 30 Years On


A small group of researchers from PSI will be spending six months replicating the ‘Philip Experiment’, contributing to a PhD thesis on the subject.
The 1970s Philip experiment sought to ‘create’ a Poltergeist purely through the collective mental energies of a group.
PhD candidate Fiona Campbell said:
“The experiment has been recreated a few times, but not nearly enough to provide evidence to the scientific community that there may be something interesting going on; paranormal or otherwise.”
PSI’s ‘Philip’ researcher, Nicky Sewell said:
“We will be recreating the experiment fortnightly over the course of six months and hope Fiona’s submissions to scientific journals will help shed some light on this fascinating area.
“We will, of course, keep PSI members fully updated as to how we get on.”
Any groups wishing to participate in her study should contact Fiona on [email protected]
