Psibotics: What if We Could Program Robots using Psi? We Can! – Garret Moddel, PhD – February 22, 2019

Dr. Garret Moddel


Consider a machine designed to carry out specific actions automatically – a robot – that is controlled by our intentions. Imagine it being able to carry out functions at speeds, time and size scales, distances, and levels of complexity that would be impossible for unaided humans to carry out. Such systems have already been demonstrated, but only the tip of the iceberg has been exposed. Much more is possible, which will stretch the imagination.

With the application of intention, psychokinesis, one of the components of psi, has been shown to influence random systems in a wide range of experiments. In common examples, this intention has been used to produce a particular outcome. Examples include influencing the result of a coin flip, the tossing of dice, and the output of an electronic random number generator (RNG). These systems, however, are not robots.

Basic psibots, which I define as robots driven by psi-mediated intention, have been demonstrated as well. These include

– an RNG-driven motorized device with direction of motion influenced by the intention of operators (PEAR Program 2007)

– a system in which one RNG predicts the random switching of another RNG about one second in advance (Colorado 2011: EdgeScience and AIP chapter)

– a color-changing lamp that responds to intention (Psyleron)

– raster scanned images produced from an RNG present during remote viewing sessions (Colorado 2014)

Less obvious examples, such as the Global Consciousness Project (why the GCP will need an explanation!) have been demonstrated as well. These and future applications in entertainment, investments, and scientific exploration will be presented.

Bio: Garret Moddel has been a Professor of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado since 1985. Along with quantum engineering of new thin-film optoelectronic devices and exotic energy technologies (, his research group investigates psi phenomena ( He has invented a range of new energy technologies, with 30 patents, and founded several high-tech start-up companies. He was recently president of the Society for Scientific Exploration, and currently serves as its Vice President. Dr. Moddel earned a BSEE degree from Stanford and MS and PhD degrees in Applied Physics from Harvard.
