Is everything connected? Can we sense what's happening to loved ones thousands of miles away? Why are we sometimes certain of a caller's identity the instant the phone rings? Do intuitive hunches contain information about future events? Is it possible to perceive without the use of the ordinary senses?

Many people believe that such "psychic phenomena" are rare talents or di

This book was really neat. Reading study after study after study after study, all of which demonstrate that the universe and consciousness are NOT random drives home with scientific evidence that impossible things are not only possible, but common and replicable under scrutiny. Psi (psychic) phenomena, including telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis are explored in the laboratory and grounded in hard science. (Seriously, read it yourself). It serves to point out that the views we have acquired ...more

Too much commentary and not enough substance. Still, worth reading if you don't like reading text books and haven't yet read anything on this subject.

I have been studying Quantum Physics since I read Fritjof Capra’s “Tao of Physics” about 35 years ago. I have also studied C.G. Jung’s Psychological books for the past 40 years and when you compare the thoughts of both writers there is a definite correlation between Quantum and ESP. The simplest source of this phenomena is that in Quantum Physics it is possible for neutrons that are a universe apart that if one stops spinning in one direction and changes it’s course the exact redirection will ha ...more

It could have been an intriguing book, however he spent too much time "proving" the point, and not enough time on the theories behind the proof. Boring!

In his book, “Entangled Minds”, Dean Radin blends his experience as a scientist with his sincere desire to present readers with easily understood and timely information about quantum mechanics and Psi research (Psi as it is used here can be defined as, “A means by which information can be gained from a distance without the use of the ordinary senses.”)

After a brief, but thorough, look at the history/origins of Psi, dating all the way back to 2000 BC when the Egyptians used a practice known as ‘d

This book can be roughly divided into two halves. In the first half, the author primarily talks about parapsychology experiments and the scientific/mathematics reasoning behind them (to prove that they're real and not random). Although the math is sound, the reading can get a bit boring and repetitive, especially if you're already familiar with parapsychology books before.

The second half is what I find much more interesting. Here the author talks about quantum-related or quantum-oriented phenome

The title of this book promises to delve into the connections between quantum physics and ESP. While it provides a wealth of information about the history of ESP research, including studies that prove that it's real, the book deals only lightly with the quantum side.
It's not that the explanations of quantum theories aren't there; they are, in a way that is easily understood by folks like me who aren't scientists. There just isn't a whole lot of it.
Because of this lack, I was disappointed in th

Recommends it for: Evan
Warning: Although well written, this is a hard book to read with a lot of statistical analysis.

This is essentially the follow-on of Dean Radin's earlier book "The Conscious Universe". Personally, I think it is one of the most significant books I have ever read. Chapter 13 (Theories of Psi) is especially thought provoking....and sometimes hard to grasp...I had to read it twice. Chapter 14 (Next) is kind of fun to read, especially when he takes the skeptical scientific community to task...well des

Without overstating the case, this books rolls out in logical order a volume of legitimate scientific research on extrasensory perception and links it to quantum physics, including Einstein's action at a distance observations and Bell's theorem. I intended to skim this book, but I ended up reading every word of every experiment and every argument for and against. You can't really read this book and ignore the implications. Fascinating.

This books achieves different (very important) things at once. That probably haven't been presented as substantially in one single work before, or even separately. It goes through the history of the most scientifically relevant studies in psychic phenomena, since their inception. It investigates and presents evidence (reserch, not just arguments) about why psychic phenomena have been traditionally regarded as an exotic, to say the least, field of research, and usually there is very little, close ...more

There is a must here to understand and study statistics to determine if the experiments show evidence of PSI
In the first part of the book Dean Radin wants to prove that Psi really exits
I think the relationship between Psi and Quantum physics must be more studied to be more clear
I also think that the author want us to think in a new way about reality , what it is and how we see it.
The best part is the part of the book that shows all the theories that can explain Psi phenomena and presents them

This is definitely one of the more readable books I've read about quantum physics that still provides loads of scientific evidence. If you've ever wondered why you just "know" that someone you care about is in trouble, this book does a good job of explaining the phenomenon of entanglement. Don't let the "paranormal" label put you off...this is not about ghosts, demons, or anything like it. This is scientific evidence from multiple studies that shows how we are connected, and Dr. Radin explains e ...more

Dean Radin is an academic parapsychologist whose interest lies in the workings of psychic phenomena in a quantum reality. Dubbed by some “the Einstein of consciousness research,” he never quite says that everything springs from consciousness. But his books are filled with evidence of the primary role of consciousness, and they are well done and fascinating reading.

I think the interpretation provided in this book to explain the paranormal/psychic experiences some people usually have is very plausible and even somewhat logical, well if you try to grasp the new concepts in quantum theory. I really enjoyed reading this book, not to mention it was my first on quantum reality and definitely won't be the last!

This book was fascinating! I read it a few years ago when doing research for my novel ECHO 8 (which will be published next year by Tor). Clear, easy to understand, and engaging. An informative read for anyone interested in psi, and a must read for those who also have an interest in quantum physics.

Fascinating book, which make us to realize that we are not so crazy when we feel and see or hear things that seems impossible or spooky.
A little bit difficult to follow, so you have to read it very slowly and carefully, but it’s all worth it!

"Please believe me that psi is real" - a book by Dean Radin.

(This isn't necessarily to say that I don't believe in the existence of psi, or that the content of this book is at all superfluous - just that this particular book focused on telling its messages more than showing.)

This is an excellent book. For anyone who'd aspire to an appreciation of the current landscape of intuition, this is one you should put on your list. No smoke and mirrors, no baloney, just thoughtful, fearless science made readable. Radin spends most of the book recounting many great experiments (which prove psi) accessible to non-scientists like me. But I hope you'll forgive my impatience with those pages. I wasn't looking for proof what I've experienced was real. I was enthralled with Chapters ...more

A detailed presentation with proofs about all the different types of psi phenomena, along with the history of parapsychology, everything beautifully organized with end-notes for instant reference. Dean Radin did a great job by presenting all those references about studies in the field of parapsychology/paranormal.

The section of the history of parapsychology and paranormal was interesting –even for me that I don't go nuts about history– as I learned things I didn't know. Just the hyper-analyses o

This is in essence an updated and slightly lighter (at least if one also reads the endnotes; if not, quite lighter) version of Radin's previous and bigger work ("The consciuous universe"). Structure, claims and content are similar, and in fact this will also repeat to a fair extent in his later offering ("Supernormal"). While in the latter the core is whether current knowledge and experimental data can support the claims of the Yoga Sutras, here the main claim is that psi is getting enough evide ...more

This is a new genre i have been pointed towards by a friend. This was my second book in this direction, and i liked it. I am a skeptic (as most of us 'science-oriented' people are) but i see as the author points out, this is a field which has been shunned by the scientific community citing this to be voodoo and not to have any scientific basis or studies. However, I paraphrase the author Science is meant to explain what we do not understand, that is the very foundation and purpose of Science.

Alex Grey's funky psychedelic paintings got me curious about notions of "entanglement" -- what if our selves don't always end at the physical boundary of our bodies? (Here's my related story: Radin sorts through the scientific literature on psi, or extrasensory perception, and argues it's much more robust and convincing than people realize. He wonders if a connected universe will be the next great scientific discovery. As if we live in a "gigantic bowl o ...more

I have read several books by courageous, visionary scientists who openly explore psychic or paranormal phenomenon. Among those, this is one of the least entertaining and inspiring. Lovers of the procedural aspects of science might really take to this, as there are pages and pages and pages dedicated to methodological descriptions and statistical analysis of past experiments. I'm not complaining--this is certainly important for posterity and for fellow scientists.

This book succinctly and convincingly places the otherwise fuzzy realm of psychic phenomenon firmly into the sphere of rational enquiry. For the last few centuries the overriding classical deterministic, local and casual theory of physics have pushed the idea of psi into the realm of the ridiculous, but with recent developments in quantum theory, technology, and progress in neuroscience etc., the ideas of telepathy, clairvoyance, psychokinesis and so on have become considerably less far-fetched. ...more

I gave up on this book. There were some very interesting points and discussions, but then it kind of lingered on how bad scientists are and how stupid scientists supposedly think "normal" people are. Probably true in some cases, but I don't think it's fair to lump everyone - in any camp - into one big assumption.

Because I've given up on the book, be aware I could be wrong about my assumption, perhaps the author portrays things differently further along. At my age, however, time is of the essence

This was a hard read ! Very technical and scientific language. In his previous book "The Conscious universe" Radin went to great pains to prove that PSI was real and had been proved in many laboratory experiments. I have no problem with Radin’s claims that PSI is real, even if scientists have rejected Radin's paranormal claims and suggested that he has embraced pseudoscience. He did not go much further in this book.
I was disappointed that he made no mention of how PSI relates to the purpose or r

I first got interested in this subject about three years ago. Then found more and more about in a format that can be read by someone other than a scientist. Noetic sciences are appealing and the exploration of Quantum Physics is incredibly interesting. The Miracle of Water and the Crystal series of books were also an eye opening experience. I saw the movie, "what the bleep do we know" and that sparked a reawakening of my interst.

A very convincing book that presents the evidence for the ways in which the human mind can impact on events in the universe, can see around corners and seemingly ignore the normal rules of time and space. If you're serious about paranormal research, psi, psychical research or whatever it's called these days, this is a must read.

“What Warcollier demonstrated is compatible with what modern cognitive neuroscience has learned about how visual images are constructed by the brain. It implies that telepathic perceptions bubble up into awareness from the unconscious and are probably processed in the brain in the same way that we generate images in dreams. And thus telepathic “images” are far less certain than sensory-driven images and subject to distortion.” 4 likes
