confidence in life as a continuum and himself as a localization therein as does the astronaut in the fields which constitute his special certainty. In addition to the relatively new concept of biological force-fields, reference has also been made to the existence of various undefined forces in nature which penetrate and permeate conductors as well as dielectrics, do not attenuate according to known formulas, cannot be measured by conventional electronic test equipment and may even have a spectrum of their own. The Human Mind as an Energy Generator The suspected existence of a biological or psychodynamic field, as alluded to above, is another possibility which is rapidly converting itself into a dis-tinct probability, if not a fact of hard science. The actions of the human mind -- it must be stressed, are not synonymous with the brain -- have been taken under study by pioneer researchers, some medically trained, who are revealing human potentials which only a few years ago were unknown and unsus-pected. Mankind Research Unlimited is fortunate to have several of these pioneer researchers associated with our programs. These studies imply that the human mind has and can develop greater than normal access to information by extending and enhancing the sensory abilities. Through the development of these sensory abilities, however latent they may be, beyond those of the five recognized senses, may thusly permit man to tran-scend, or pass beyond the limits which contemporary science accepts as confining. The Mind-Body Link in Health By means of these extended sensory perceptive abilities, man is able positively to affect his bodily (somatic) actions in the same manner in which the early pioneers in psychosomatic medicine believed that certain psychological states could have a deleterious effect on the body's functioning and status. Not only have these positive effects of higher sensory perception begun to be dramatically recorded, but the possibility of their being taught, and con-stantly improved through autogenic feedback mechanisms, is on the threshold of becoming a reality. The control of autonomic functions, or those of the involuntary nervous system, have been well-documented -- a development which places in some jeopardy the use of the term ''involuntary''.
The story of Mankind Research is the story of the paranoia of the Cold War.
