Hey Calling All Those Psychic-Curious Folk In The Toronto Area!
How would you like to take part in a very cool experiment?

My Colleague Chris Laursen is doing an experiment in psychometry.
Psychometry is the ability to sense information from inert objects like photos, watches, etc.

Psychics use this ability to help find missing persons, to be able to get psychic messages for people, and to sense if a person may not be well etc.

Everyone has this ability. It is just more developed in some people.
Chris is looking for folks who think they might be psychic or intuitive, or are just interested in participating in an experiment of a psychic nature to come out and find out "What's in The Box"

I will be one of the subjects evaluated at the Seneca York University Campus location.
If you are in the Newmarket area and wish to come along on my car pool on June 19th you can contact me through comments or my email, and please contact Chris too.

Here is his message:

There are four more public dates in which you can participate in the Psychometry Experiment led by social historian Chris Laursen. All dates are in Toronto, including the Beaches (June 9), North York (June 19), Parkdale (June 24) and the Danforth (June 30). Full details of these dates are below.
What if you could derive specific facts about the history of an object simply by touching it? You will have a chance to find out if they have this uncanny ability in the Psychometry Experiment, being held at locations in the greater Toronto area until JUNE 30.
This is part of research social historian Chris Laursen is conducting on psychometry. Psychometry, or "token-object reading," is when you touch an object that belongs to someone you do not know, and you get specific and accurate impressions about the object and/or object owner's history.
It's very simple. You would participate at one of the public dates below by pre-booking (via e-mail).
Participation will take 45 to 60 minutes of your time. You will have four boxes in front of you, each of them containing a personal object belonging to someone. You can open them one by one in the order you please. You have half an hour, and should take your time to get mental impressions from each objects, giving them to Chris in as much detail as possible. It is okay if you can't get through all four objects. It is much preferred that you spend the time you need with one or two objects than rush through all four.
You can either give your impressions verbally (audio is recorded) or by writing them down/drawing them (pen and paper provided). The impressions you get can be anything: images, sounds, emotions, words. These things may seem random to you, but trust your instincts and give absolutely every impression that comes to you.
Your identity is confidential and will not be released in any reports made on this project.
Not immediately. Chris will be correlating all results through until the early autumn, at which point he will e-mail you summaries of the objects you looked at and if any of your impressions accurately pertained to the actual history of the objects and their owners. Chris will also be writing about and speaking on this project and the history of psychometry, and will notify you of any articles published or public engagements.
You never know. What you perceive may accurately be the history of the object and its owner! The only way you can find out is by trying.
We invite you to participate, find out what's inside of the boxes and give your impressions of the objects! Check the official website, http://psychometry.psican.org, for full details on how to participate. You must pre-book a time (as per below dates) to guarantee that you can participate.
