Product Description


This work is about a social scientist's voyage into the world of non-ordinary, multidimensional energy phenomena. The book is both an examination of the limited belief systems intrinsic to existing mechanistic worldviews and an exploration of emerging new paradigms based on subtle-energy sciences. New discoveries in physics, combined with a greater awareness of extraordinary phenomena that surround us, challenge our traditional beliefs in the mechanistic universe of Sir Isaac Newton. Research into remote viewing, crop circles, and extra-terrestrials shows our world to be vibrant, multidimensional, and mysterious. The author shows us how we can connect with this infinite universe. Read how many crop circles are made from first-hand accounts!

You need an open mind to ingest this, but I really enjoyed it and read it in one day (on holiday). Couldn't put it down.

I downloaded a sample of this book before purchase (this was the first sample I had reviewed since owning my Kindle). Having seen whole paragraphs corrupted at the starting sections beyond readability, I mistakenly assumed that this was intentional as I was reviewing a "sample", as following content was readable.

I was wrong. After deleting the sample and purchasing the book (this was a separate file), the corruption was precisely the same. I have therefore requested a refund, so fair do's to Amazon for this essential safety-net.

Although other pages I've breezed through seem OK, I would advise steering clear of this book. It is a badly digitised copy and, as the corrupted pages appear at the very start, it is evidently not proof-read.

HASH(0xa03aaa98) out of 5 stars Strong on Thinking and Cross-Fertilization, Weak on Photographs and Illustrations 15 Mar. 2006
By Robert David STEELE Vivas - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Do yourself a favor and buy "Vital Signs: A Complete Guide to the Crop Circle Mystery and Why It is NOT a Hoax" by Andy Thomas. The superb collection of color photographs from many times and places there will peak your interest and inoculate you from losing interest in this book, "Opening Minds," which you should read AFTER enjoying "Vital Signs." See also my review of "Vital Signs" for points I will not repeat here.

This book, while weak on photographs and illustrations, is stronger on thinking and cross fertilization. I drew three points out of it:

1) Humans are barely scratching the surface of what they can do with their full conscious and sub-conscious powers. Our culture has literally destroyed much of our inherent talent for thinking and intuiting and remote viewing and sub-conscious communications.

2) There is, according to this author, and I for one believe him, clear evidence that remote viewing, when focused on extra-terrestrial targets (e.g. Martian Scientists), appears to open channels for receiving from those extra-terrestrial targets, direct sub-conscious inputs and assistance.

3) Finally, that crop formations, both those that humans make and those that seem to appear as gigantic beacons to some form of intelligence viewing the Earth from afar, are a focal point where a blending of different energies take place--magnetic fields, light fields, thought fields.

I put both these books down in a pensive mood. There is so much that is going wrong with the world, and yet there is so much that could be gotten right if we just harnessed the distributed intelligence of everyone, including the five billion poor at the bottom of the pyramid. We are--despite our millions of years of so-called development as a species--evidently at the 2nd grade level, still pooping in our crib, throwing tantrums, spilling food and breaking things. One can only gasp at the potential of the human species if it ever "grew up."

These are both serious and very worthwhile books to buy and read.

HASH(0xa0645024) out of 5 stars This Book Rocks! 14 July 2002
By Patty Snyder - Published on
Format: Paperback
Finally, the most informative book about crop circles. Fascinating reading. The reader will learn about topics such as remote viewing, quantum physics, and other "paranormal" topics. It is obvious that Dr. Hein has thoroughly researched these subjects. Not to be missed!

HASH(0xa09cb624) out of 5 stars music of the spheres 22 May 2007
By Philip Kobylarz - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book will blow your mind. Simeon Hein channels the ghost of Hamlet as he eloquently posits that there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in most of our philosophies. His meditation is a guidebook into the worlds of alternative thinking that present themselves as viable expressions of creativity and human understanding taking the reader places she or he has probably never been before, yet, oddly enough, containing landscapes that seem strangely recognizable.

Writing about the occult sciences has been popular in the tradition of European literature since the 1500s when the Oxford English dictionary defined the term as "beyond the range of ordinary knowledge". These are just such the planes of being Hein encourages us to explore in his discussions of remote viewing, crop circles, resonance, and dreaded existentialism during this era of devotion to technology.

The first chapters of the book consider the Age of Illumination mentality we have inherited and how such clockwork versions of the world can lead us to feel trapped within mental walls while timeless, organic vignettes of a deeper reality are pictured just outside the window, out of reach. What Hein as bodhisattva leads the reader towards via discussions of Abbott's Flatland, the Butterfly Effect, sociological considerations of dystopias, and the rigidity of Western thought is truly simple: reconsider what it means to know and what it is to be in this best of all possible worlds.

The later chapters require a leap of faith on the reader's part as they discuss Ufology, government sponsored psychic research programs, and the residual energy created by the formation of crop circles. He also includes an interesting personal account of his entry into the world of alternative realities. However, the author doesn't try to convince or propagandize- he merely reports the phenomena as he experiences it.

Many writers, such a Fourier, Goethe, Nerval, and Strindberg have sought such fruitful, Orphic realms for the expression of the mind's untapped creativity. It is interesting to note that upon this reviewer's reading, several nights of extremely lucid dreaming occurred.

"Opening Minds" is essential reading for anyone who is fascinated by the topics it covers and who appreciates a writer who is in touch with the Jungian collective unconsciousness at a very deep, soulful level.

HASH(0xa03aaed0) out of 5 stars Terrible.. 15 Aug. 2014
By alan kaye - Published on
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book on iTunes as an audible book. The author reads the book as if the listener has an understanding of all terms used. I had to stop after chapter 2 because I had no idea of what he is talking about. It seems to me by the way he reads he does not even know his own material. I got the impression someone else wrote the book and Dr Hein is just reading the words as many are misprounced, the reading is choppy. Terrible...hope the actual book is better.

HASH(0xa03af09c) out of 5 stars Hard Facts or Heresy? 30 Sept. 2006
By Betsy - Published on
Format: Paperback
Crop circles demonstrating natural superconductor properties -- individuals accessing unlimited amounts of information by tapping into unseen resonant frequencies -- the possibility that extraterrestials are walking among us -- Dr. Hein's book "Opening Minds" offers credible scientific evidence in support of these claims. Aptly named, "Opening Minds" has expanded my way of thinking by awakening me to a multiverse of constantly vibrating, invisibile subtle energies that are the very building blocks of our existence.
