A quantum interpretation of psi
By Howard A. Jones
Although Dean Radin is not a quantum physicist per se, his background in physics, electrical engineering and psychology and a decade working for AT&T Bell Laboratories enable him to write with authority and clarity about quantum processes. The `entanglement' of the title originates from a term that Erwin Schrödinger used to describe the interdependent relationship between subatomic particles and their associated energies, irrespective of their spatial or temporal separation.
Radin, and many other scientists with some expertise in quantum physics, believe that the relationship between particles on the micro scale also mirrors and probably directly affects a similar relationship between the seemingly separate consciousnesses of human individuals. The experimental data also suggest that this entanglement even applies to human consciousness with plants and animals. For nearly two decades now, Radin has investigated the phenomena of parapsychology or psi described here. Fuller details of the investigation of the phenomena themselves, without all the quantum theory, are available in Radin's earlier book, The Conscious Universe.
In this book, as indicated by the subtitle, Radin goes into some of the theoretical scientific background reasoning that has led to a rational, empirical verification of the existence of psi and its explanation in terms of quantum physics. The book is written in very accessible language with a minimum of jargon but inevitably, if readers are to understand why many scientists (mostly physicists and psychologists, rarely biologists) are so excited by these discoveries, some knowledge of the fundamentals of quantum physics is desirable. This doesn't need a degree in the subject but, if they are to get the best out of this well-written treatise, readers should be familiar with the idea of complementarity of particles and wave energy (photons and electrons are both waves and particles at the same time), action at a distance (like apples on trees being attracted to Earth by gravity), space-time invariance of properties (particles interact independent of their separation by distance or time), and the fundamental difference between the deterministic, predictable world of Newtonian physics (like billiard balls on a table) and the probabilistic world of quantum physics (where we can only express the likelihood of a result and never define all the properties of the particles exactly at any moment); all these terms are explained by Radin here.
There is a comprehensive list of Endnotes with references and a good Index.
Dr Howard A. Jones is the author of The Thoughtful Guide to God (2006) and The Tao of Physics (2008), both published by O Books of Winchester, UK.

The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena
Radin is clearly a scientist at heart but manages to make this research enjoyable to read and accessible. Alongside the hard evidence Radin gives us interesting facts such as numerous surveys indicate that a raised IQ is associated with believing in psychic phenomena whilst a lower IQ is associated with believing in religious paranomal (eg.heaven, hell, the devil, etc).
The book also explores current gaps in current scientific knowledge and gives the reader a historical perspective on research into psychic phenomenon.
I will never look at the world in the same way again after reading this, highly recommended!
