Borderland Sciences

“We push on into areas of consciousness where the inner mind is the only research tool for making quantitative and qualitative measurements of reality — whatever that is.”

The history and philosophy of Borderland Sciences encompass a broad and fascinating field that explores the intersection between science, spirituality, and consciousness. Dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this unconventional branch of scientific inquiry seeks to expand traditional scientific boundaries and embrace the exploration of phenomena that lie at the fringes of our understanding. Borderland Sciences seeks to bridge the gap between the known and the unknown, investigating topics such as Ether Physics, Flying Saucers, Vitalism, Radionics, Electrotherpy, Plant Research, Physical Radiesthesia and on.  Through a blend of scientific curiosity and spiritual exploration, Borderland Sciences offer a unique perspective on the nature of reality and human consciousness. Let’s delve deeper into the history and philosophy of this intriguing field.

What you will find in this catalog are print editions from the seventy-seven year tradition of Borderland Sciences Research Foundation, each one presented in our original, classic xerographic format, comfortably accommodating those who wish to conduct their work away from monitors and mobile screens. If paper under your fingertips and the subtle radiations of inky lines washing over your retinae are experiences that aid you in truly grasping the knowledge presented (or you simply can’t stand to read long-form on a screen), we are here to serve you.

Thank you to all our associates, our contributors, our volunteers, and all interested researchers who have helped sustain our organization by purchasing our print material since 1945. You are the ones who have allowed us to continue to serve, and, hopefully, will continue to allow us to serve for another seventy years. Let us uphold and spread abroad the Light!

“We have all to specialize, more or less — but whoever boxes himself in, tries to find the whole truth inside his box, knows nothing of other approaches to knowledge or is merely contemptuous of them, is working with only one hand and hopping on one foot, when he doesn’t need to.”
