A request from Carlos S. Alvarado, Ph.D., from the Division of Perceptual Studies at the University of Virginia:
I am conducting an on-line survey to learn more about a variety of
experiences many people have had in their daily lives. I hope your answers
will help me determine how common these experiences are.
I really hope you will help me in my task! All you have to do is fill out an
on-line questionnaire. Completing the questionnaire should take you less
than 30 minutes. Whatever your answers may be, whether or not you have had
the experiences I mention, your answers are just as important and valuable!
Be assured that all your answers will be held in the strictest confidence,
and the findings will be presented in such a way that no individual could
possibly be singled out or recognized. (There is more information on this
issue and other issues in the cover letter and consent form that are
included in the on-line questionnaire.)
If you took the on-line questionnaire that I was involved with a couple of
years ago, you will find that the demographic, dream and parapsychological
experiences questions are pretty much the same. But because the body of the
questionnaire is quite different, I hope you won’t mind answering the
demographic, dream and parapsychological experiences questions again.
If you’re interested in taking part in the survey, please go to the
following website to begin the process: www.studyofhumanexperiences.org/index.html
