It's generally accepted among the scientists interested in the subject that what is popularly known as ESP is a group of phenomena whose existence- hinges in the Final analysis on the physical fields that are (c) 1987 The British Broadcasting Corporation, June 8, 1987 believed to be generated by biological objects. To study such fields a special laboratory has been set up at the~lns "Ate-of Radio Enaineerina and Electronic of the USSR Academy of Sciences. The lab is headed by f uar and overall supervision of research in this area is in the hands -o _ url _yev+ a corresponding member of the academy. Some of the n ngs at this a appear to be of definite promise. Most important of all, they have been ?Q tamed. 7y u frtq highly advanced physical instruments and thus meet the need which has so often in the past been flooded with data that could hardly be said to be reliable. [Woman announcer] What sort of Findings are you referring to at this lab? EBelitskiy] In the- ears that the lab has been in existence its staff of physicists, engineers, ys o ogists, and other specialists have established that, ry living biological object gives rise to a complex pattern of physical fields. Their distribution in space and variation with the passage arkime yields valuable Information which can be used, for example, for purposes of medical diagnosis.

(c) 1987 The British Broadcasting Corporation, June 8, 1987 [Belltskly] Every human being generates quite a number of physical fields: infra-red., thermal-radio, low-frequency electric, magnetic, acoustic, bioluminescent and others. What the scientists at the lab are concentrating on Is "en-tlLyingthe type of information about the body that can be derived from [Woman] Such studies can, of course, provide medicine with valuable new diagnostic tools, but what about the problem of human beings receiving information via such external physical fields? [Belitskiy] Well, that will clearly be the-next stage of the research conducted at the lab. Obviously, it's even more complicated than the first stage, since the body in this case acts as a very complicated receiving system. This will involve studies of an entirely new dimension involving ophysicists and psychophysiologists as well as the scientists I mentioned earlier. Such studies, too, are definitely planned, and it's quite possible they'll shed light on some aspects of what is known to the layman as ESP, extra-sensory perception.
