    I am a Psychology Major. I am searching for any serious studies on any correlation between schizophrenia and ESP, specifically clairevoyancy and claireaudiency.

    Out of curiosity, have you found any articles showing positive results in the search for ESP, clairvoyance, or others? I am not aware of any which have any meaningful power which show those effects to even exist.

    I'd start there. Once you find them, you might be able to see which show a positive correlation with schizophrenia, however, the effect itself must first be demonstrated empirically before any correlation between that effect and other characteristics can be.

    I'm sure Schizophrenia can lead to an increased predisposition for claimed ESP abilities, but seeing as how they are, as inow pointed out, not empirically supported phenomena, there would be a problem with correlating any actual abilities to any psychological abnormality.

    I'm a total skeptic...I don't even believe in nostradamus. I believe in esp. My own, only. I don't have schizophrenia. I have the sister disease, bipolar disorder. And I had a genetic growth in my brain that was surgically removed. Only my immediate family knows about my esp. I never told anyone because they'd think me nuts...my "abilities" started to diminish when I started my anti-seizure medications and completely vanished after I had brain surgery. I read that cerebral growths are often associated with esp. I'm still a skeptic, though...

    There is no such thing as extra-sensory perception as it implies exactly what the name implies: Extra sensory perception. It would be impossible to perceive in a sensory fashion an event that is beyond sensory perception; imagining a new colour for instance.

    Why are you assuming that sound is zebras instead of horses?

    Microwaves are the only synthetic telepathy or ESP, the US Government's Black Project's. I've been researching these things for about 6 years. "Schizophrenia" is a Witch Hunt terminology for the 15th century, disassociated personality is closer. Ask Me a ? A voice is a sound, a picture is a physical fact. Or, the picture is an ink splot....

    Nope.
    And you phrase that as if there's a non-synthetic "telepathy". Why?

    Then you should have found something reliable by now.

    Not easy?
    Then why was I regularly handed it?
    Regardless, you should have solid data leading you to conclusions.
