Dr Radin’s talk focused on a variety of important topics from the Western understanding of Yoga, to the results of laboratory experiments on the basic phenomena of psychic functioning.

Which of the following sentences describes this relationship best.
Psychic functioning is well understood in the laboratory and well understood by the general public as well.
Because the psychic phenomena we study today were well understood in the ancient Yoga traditions in India, modern Western science dismisses them as fantasy.
The more profound and rare experiences that seem well beyond the reach of science are well accepted while the common and mundance experiences easily studied by science are highly controversial.
Results from remote viewing and ganzfeld experiments, simply because they have such strong statistical evidence for the psychic phenomena under study are rejected outright by skeptics, materialists and many scientists.
Psychic functioning has been found in many laboratories but scientists believe the results are fraudulent.
