Regarding Anomalous Cognition And Perturbation

File 6852 of the Star Gate Interactive Archive reveals a paper outlining areas of interest for Cognitive Science Research and Applications. It appears to have been written by Dr. Edwin May, but the author's name is missing.

The author describes two types of Anomalous Phenomena: Cognition and Perturbation. He further divides the Cognition aspect of the research and applications side into three categories: Detector, Transmission, and Source and then lists research areas appropriate to each.

Today I will give an overview of the cognition aspect and leave the perturbation aspect overview for the next blog.

COGNITION CATEGORIES: Detector, Transmission, and Source


Basic Detector

Central Nervous System
NeuroNet Models
Autonomic Responses
Inter-species Communications
Other Animals

Applied Detector

Other Physiology (Skin)
Personality Definitions (Behavioral/Self-report- Q-Sort/MSTI)
Perceptual Models (Motivation/Emotion)
Selection (Direct/Correlational)
Environment -- Physical (GMF)
Environment -- Psychological (Set and Setting)
Environment -- Physiological (Comfort)
Response Type (Audio/Video/Left hand)
Redundancy (Multiple Pass/Multiple Detections)

Mixed Detector
Internal Noise Source
Training (Macroscopic/Operant)
Session Protocols


Basic Transmission

Decision Augmentation Theory
Worm Holes
Vector/Scalar Potential Propagation
Stochastic Causality


Basic Source
Informational (Entropy/Meaning)
Other Thermodynamic
Vector/Scalar Potential

Applied Source
Human Sender
Demarcation (Coordinates/Beacon)
External Noise Source
Inverse (Search)

Mixed Source
Physical Characteristics (Size/Composition)
Type (Static/Dynamic)
One-in-"n" (Forced Choice/Binary)
