Abstract-David Bohm's interpretation of quantum mechanics suggests that if a neuronal pattern is repeatedly activated in the brain at the time of an initial experience, it may resonate with, and influence, any similar pattern that is spontaneously activated in the present. This may lead to a sustained activation of the present pattern, and it could assist in the retrieval not only of memories
that were formed in the past, but also of memories that will be formed in the future. A comparison is made between the processes of memory and precognition, and it is shown how precognition can occur without any risk of the percipient confronting the intervention paradox. Empirical support is given by the results of target-guessing experiments in precognition, and a mechanism is suggested for the way in which subjects identify the future targets. The model suggests that all forms of extrasensory perception may be due to resonances between structures created in living brains and that the "clairvoyant"
interpretation can be eliminated. Suggestions are made for experiments to confirm the proposals.
