Retrocognition (also known as postcognition), from the Latin retro meaning “backward, behind” and cognition meaning “knowing”, is the purported paranormal transfer of information about an event or object in the past. The term was coined by Frederic Myers.[1][1] Retrocognition, like all forms of psychic functioning, is said by critics such as Robert Todd Carroll to be, in all probability, illusion or fraud.[2]
