“Dowsing along the psi-track. Have Swedish psi-researchers done something really important – a repeatable experiment?” by J. Tellefsen and S. Magnusson
This is a short account of a remarkable discovery, the ability of a dowser to detect an apparent “line of thought” between an object and a person thinking about that object. This connection which was named the “psi-track”. The method involved a person (“the sender”), imagining the object hidden at some distant. The dowser would then walk in ever wider circles around the sender, and when they passed over the supposed line connecting the sender with the object, they obtained a dowsing reaction. From these reactions, it was possible to deduce the direction in which the object lay.
The Swedish researchers appear to have conducted their experiments with some care, using double-blind protocols and reported very good results. The article appeared in the BSD journal, but it is a shorter version of one that can be downloaded from the Articles section of dowsing-reacerch.net, entitled: “Dowsing along the psi track – a novel procedure for studying unusual perception” by the same authors.
The implication was that the act of thinking about the object, created some influence that existed independently of the sender. Now although, the psi-track is presented as a novel discovery, it seems similar to suggestions made by certain members of the BSD, in relation to the origin of supposed “Earth Energies”, in which they challenged this orthodoxy, suggesting instead that the energies were really “mind constructs”. For instance, see the following posts:
19-06-2020 – The Beadon Cube controversy.
21-06-2020 – We find what we believe.
However, the method of using the psi-track to locate a lost object (animate or inanimate) does seem to be new. A lone dowser would presumably find the direction in which an object lies directly from their dowsing device. But perhaps, in the case were the dowser is not particularly familiar with the object sought, or maybe their dowsing abilities are not so well developed, errors might occur. In such cases, the psi-track method might offer some advantages. First, the sub-title of the article suggests that the tracks can be can be made by anyone. We might speculate that if there is a deep connection between the sender and the object, it might create a more reliable (perhaps even a stronger) line of connection?
