(ESP) involves reception of information not gained through the
recognized senses and not inferred from previous experience. The term
was coined by German psychical researcher, Rudolf Tischner, and adopted
by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities
such as telepathy and clairvoyance, and their trans-temporal operation
as precognition or retrocognition. ESP is also sometimes casually
referred to as a sixth sense, gut instinct or hunch. The term implies
acquisition of information by means external to the basic limiting
assumptions of science, such as that organisms can only receive
information from the past to the present.
