Dr. Taff is best known for his study of the “Entity” case of 1974, which was subsequently made into a 1982 feature film. Dr. Taff earned his doctorate in psychophysiology with a minor in biomedical engineering from UCLA. He also worked in the parapsychology lab at UCLA from 1969 through 1978 as a research associate where he studied precognition, ESP, and investigated reports of poltergeists and hauntings, and has continued over the last 40 years to log over 4000 cases. He also holds five medical patents.
A couple of months ago listener Ward suggested Dr. Taff as a guest which reminded me that I have wanted to talk to him for years. We started off with a history of the UCLA lab and Dr. Taff’s work there, including a study of his own apparent psychic abilities.
We also covered remote viewing, some of Taff’s more edgy ghost investigations and various theories about the paranormal and ended with his history of UFO studies and experiences with early (1970s) abductions.
Dr, Taff has recently been stricken with severe cataracts and a fund has been set up to help him cover the considerable medical costs. If you want to help out, you can donate here.
