Product Description

Review

Radin is a mix of curiosity, scholarship, technical expertise, and sly wit. (New York Times Magazine)

Looking through The Lost Symbol, it seems that the “new” topic that will benefit from “the Dan Brown effect” is Noetic Science. . . . parapsychology researcher Dean Radin is at the Institute of Noetic Science - these “heretical science” topics are likely to generate much debate. (MSNBC's Cosmic Log)

About the Author

Director of the Consciousness Research Laboratory at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas and twice president of the Parapsychology Association, Dean Radin, Ph.D., has done cutting-edge parapsychology research for AT&T, Stanford, Princeton's Engineering Anomalies Research Lab, the University of Edinburgh, S.R.I. International, and the U.S. Government. He lives in Las Vegas, NV.

Format: Hardcover
Radin's book was a surprise to me. I have been often interested in the paranormal, but have always felt it completely lacked any scientific truth, and was worth little more than entertainment. Eventually, I became very sceptical to any issues that could not be easily accepted by science. This book has made me think twice by finally providing some meta-analysis that convinced me to at least stop to wonder.
To keep it short, Radin basically claims that the paranormal is real and has proof of it. He starts by defining the concept of Psi, and dedicates many pages trying to explain you the mathematical and statistical background you will need to understand the studies and the meta-analysis of the results. Radin then proceeds to expose all the evidence that has been gathered for the past years, for Telepathy, Perception at a distance and through time, Mind-Matter interaction, Mental interaction with living organisms and field consciousness. His next theme dedicates 50 pages to explain the why scepticism has been limiting the knowledge of Psi phenomena, and even approaches some metaphysics.
The book is very well organized, there is some redundancy, but no more than normal and it is often necessary. Subjects are well separated and the index is very good. What impressed me most was perhaps the way Radin provides the reader with external sources that back up his claims. The text is full of marks to references. You have about 40 pages with notes and references, which you will be able to check for yourself. If Radin claims something you might want to confirm, it most likely tells you where to go find the original document. This aspect alone would be enough to separate this work from many of the pseudocience junk on the market.

This is a great book packed with detailed evidence for Psi phenomena such as telepathy and remote viewing. It is also a precise, methodical and fair refutation of the tactics usesd by skeptics to dismiss phenomena incompatible with their world view.
Mr Radin also gives short shrift to gullible New Age "true believers", exposing both they and the skeptics as people publicly committed to belief systems that prevent them from being guided by evidence and reason.
If you have accepted the intellectually fashionable and heavily promoted view that such phenomena are impossible this book will prove a real eye opener.

I wasn't expecting much from another book of this sort, since most of the competition isn't worth the money, but the scientific approach used by Radin is impressive. Despite being such a controvertial subject, Radin manages to mix his obvious enthusiasm for the subject with an objective scientific method producing some amazing results. Assuming the results are accurate (and due to the thorough nature of work, I assume they are), it would prove to be a tremendous blow to the very foundations of modern physics.

I was so impressed by this book, I read it in only 3 days, and have already ordered "Entangled Minds", also by Radin. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.

I have long been interested in the realm of Parapsychology and the seeming ability of some individuals to perform acts which mainstream science deems "impossible". This passing interest increased at school after discovering Albert Einstein actually belived in the human ability of Extra Sensory Perception highlighting that humans use only a small percentage of our brains. This interest has remained and I have chosen to carry out my final year project of my degree into telepathy.
I bought this bookfor background research and I think I must have stumbled across a goldmine. Not only does it cover telepathy but also all the other Psi phenomena and it does so in a systematic and informative manner. It describes each area and explains the studies and methods used to test each ability. The results are clearly shown and Radin does not attempt to convince you of its existence, merely to show you the facts. The references section is a godsend especially for me as it has enabled me to consolodate my research. Not only does the book cover the Psi phenomena, it also looks into it's implications which was an added bonus. The book is well written and was so interesting I've read not only the sections on telepathy but the whole book!

What is fascinating about The Conscious Universe is simply Dean Radin's apporach at interpreting data from hundreds of experiments that put the controversial psychic phenomena under the microscope.

Dean, doesn't claim that psychic phenomena are just real, nor does he get carried away by the common belief that psi is impossible. He just checks it out for himself and inteprets the result in a very scientific manner. As someone who has studied Advanced Maths and with a highly scientific background I find the interpretation of the statistics used to conform with those used in other areas of science. Even the methods used to make the experiments fair and relevant is what a demanding, unbiased scientist would have done.

The results though are fascinating and mathematically significant. I urge every science lover to not just read this book, but even to keep it.

It would of great benefit for us who love the scientific method of understanding the world; to realise that having a valid opinion about what we can't currently explain requires looking at the evidence first, rather than believing other people's beliefs (about the inexistence of psi in this case) simply because they are commonly held.
