Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Says He is 99% Sure That ESP is Real

Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Brian Josephson is one of the most high-profile academics to have voiced support for the 'heretical' science of parapsychology. So I was thrilled to see that the always excellent Closer to Truth had interviewed him about the topic, and uploaded some of the chat - titled "Is ESP a Window on a Larger Reality?" - to YouTube (embedded above).

If ESP can claim some kind of truth, the implications would be profound. The confirmation of any ESP, no matter how minor, would challenge the materialism-physicalism structure of the world, built over centuries by science. Reality itself would expand.

Closer to Truth also asked theoretical physicist Fred Alan Wolf, and psychologist/skeptic Bruce Hood, the same question - I've embedded their interviews below.

Perhaps you could interview him? Pick his nonlocal mind?
