Popular misconceptions of psychic ability and ESP have often prevented these topics from being taken seriously, yet an abundance of scientific research shows that we have a tremendous capacity for developing these talents. In 1972, physicist Russell Targ, co-founded the Stanford Research Institute's program to investigate the development of psychic abilities. In his ten ye ...more

Eye opener. Not just a book on Remote Viewing but one that is also grounded in science and spirituality. Chapter One & Seven is particularly illuminating. Being a physicist his claims are backed with scientific rigour and theories of how psychical mind might actually work is related back to Quantum Theory and the nonlocal universe (which have been experimentally proven). I really like how he distills and unifies many different faiths together in Chapter Seven where he talks about self-realiz ...more

I read this in order to gain some mental stimuli in a sort of enhancing way, like athletes who take really expensive supplements in order to supercharge their bodies to maximum potential. Same thing with the brain and mind. If we become aware that we feed our minds just as much, if not more than we feed our physical bodies; we might as well feed it the best stuff on Earth! I wanted to understand how we can get out of the box, so to speak. Stretching the boundaries that we all put up to feel safe ...more

Russell Targ is one of the founding members of the Stanford Research Institute's studies of psychic phenomena and worked with Hal Puthoff and Ingo Swann to develop the remote viewing protocols for the CIA so I thought that a handbook on remote viewing from this scientist would delve more into the nitty gritty of the practice. Targ does do a broad outline and give examples of his research into the topic but it wasn't all that I had hoped it would be. Limitless Mind is, however, packed with inform ...more

Targ is a fascinating scientist, but he skims along the surface of a great number of psi topics, without getting very deeply into any of them. I'd expected a comprehensive look at his remote viewing work, and got anecdotes but nothing substantive.

Remote viewing!!!

A pretty fast read. I was always interested in what Russell had to say about remote viewing. I thought this book would be more into RV protocols or structure. This book is more for someone starting out in learning some RV techniques. I do have to admit that Russell would be one of the people I would love to meet. It's a shame about the loss of his daughter Elizabeth.

My favorite story is how Elizabeth was speaking about remote viewing in Russian at the age of...I believe 21 years old. Elizabeth

I want to finish this book, but I've already renewed it from the library. Returned it today. Anyway, I found it fascinating, and also I found in the Why-bother-with-ESP chapter an interesting section on forgiveness being necessary. He said if you hold a grudge against someone it is like giving that person free rent in your mind. And that interferes with your ability to perceive. This fascinated me as, both _Radical Forgiveness_ (change your perception = forgiveness) and _A Course in Miracles_ (c ...more

The author, Russell Targ, is a physicist who worked at Stanford Research Institute in the 1970's. The book discusses the research that went on at SRI during that time. The research involved remote viewing on Russia and other cold war countries. I had no idea that SRI was using remote viewing to spy so this was quite fascinating. I recommend this book if you are into reading about this sort of thing.

I was given a loan of this book otherwise I'd have missed it. Russell Targ is one of the key researchers in Remote Viewing and this book is primarily about remote viewing, but it touches on other interesting aspects of mind (like spoon bending). I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in serious science about the Paranormal or the exploration and development of their own mental abilities. I have to emphasise that this book is serious science and tells about double bli ...more
