The objective is to make progress in psychic science. Reality is a vast number of interlocking phenomena including sense data, memories, physical features, emotional features, spiritual foundations, and mostly unknown entities which humans cannot sense or even comprehend. As scientists study this set of unknown phenomena and changing mental constructs, how can we exclude psychic phenomena from study? Thus in the interest of progress, hypotheses are proposed to describe psychic phenomena. A method of calculating the differences in six dimensional co-ordinates between psychic events is derived. A call to progress in psychic science is made.
