Overview

This myth-shattering book explains the evidence for the veracity of psychic phenomena, uniting the teachings of mystics, the theories of quantum physics, and the latest in high-tech experiments. With painstaking research and deft, engaging prose, Radin dispels the misinformation and superstition that have clouded the understanding of scientists and laypeople alike concerning a host of fascinating oddities. Psychokinesis, remote viewing, prayer, jinxes, and more--all are real, all have been scientifically proven, and the proof is in this book.

Radin draws from his own work at Princeton, Stanford Research Institute, and Fortune 500 companies, as well as his research for the U.S. government, to demonstrate the surprising extent to which the truth of psi has already been tacitly acknowledged and exploited. The Conscious Universe also sifts the data for tantalizing hints of how mind and matter are linked. Finally, Radin takes a bold look ahead, to the inevitable social, economic, academic, and spiritual consequences of the mass realization that mind and matter can influence each other without having physical contact.

Radin is a mix of curiosity, scholarship, technical expertise, and sly wit.

    Thoughts are Stronger Than You Think

    Dr. Radin wrote a very scientifically detailed book describing the nature of thousands of scientific experiments proving the existence of clairvoyance, ESP and other non-standard modes of communication.
    If you do not believe things happen which current science cannot explain, you probably will not read this book at all. If you know that prayer has effects on other people for example, this book may give you additional reasons to practice what you believe. For those of us who have experienced things science cannot now explain, this book provides reasons to know we have Dr. Radin's work on our side.

    The truth about this book

    One of the reviewers dismissed this book because he claimed it 'focuses on anecdotes.' In fact, less than 5% of the 303 pages of text mentioned anecdotes, and these served only as illustrations of the experiences that motivate the scientific study of psychic phenomena. The same reviewer then claimed that 'unsuccessful psychic studies are less likely to be published than successful ones,' and that the filedrawer computation is incorrect. In fact, selective reporting is a problem in ALL of the experimental sciences, not just psi research, and the filedrawer computation used to address this problem is identical to the method used in hundreds of mainstream meta-analyses. The bottom line is this: By the same standards of evidence applied to the rest of science, there is now no doubt that some psychic effects are genuine. Complaints about the techniques used to reach this conclusion are arguments against well-accepted methods of science in general.

    An Impressive Book Capturing Most Convincing Research on Psi

    The book reveals an interesting domain of science that has been quietly studying very common human experiences that have, paradoxically, been almost completely ignored by academic psychology. Because this isn't taught in academia, hardly anyone knows that hundreds of studies have been conducted by qualified scientists, worldwide and that results strongly suggesting existence of psi have been reported for over a century. Unfortunately, being a ¿product¿ of a society with a predominantly materialistic paradigm, many people find it difficult to keep an open-minded position towards the subject. But, as the history of humanity demonstrated multiple times, these effects do not go away just because a few individuals don¿t want to let go of their believes. Yet, a growing number of these studies are appearing in mainstream scientific journals. The nature of the scientific debate has changed over the years from 'it is impossible' to 'well, I don't know how to explain it so it probably isn't very interesting.' From a sociology of science perspective, that is a gigantic change in opinion. It changes the existential nature of the debate, i.e. from 'it doesn't exist' to 'it exists, but ...'. The book provides strong arguments that some of those 'bump in the night' experiences that are so commonly reported are scientifically plausible. The best research in this domain is not naive. Independent reviews of the methodology of the best studies show that they are as good as, or better, than the best studies in the other behavioral and social sciences. This is a dramatically different story from the usual skeptical opinions. It¿s a great read for people open to the fact that science, by definition, is in process of continuous progress, and, as experience shows, what seems shocking today is widely accepted tomorrow.

    Wow !!! This is the BOOK !!!

    After losing my son in a climbing accident three years ago I began searching for answers about life, death, and the universe. In three years I have carefully studied dozens of books from scientific, religious, new age, and philisophical writers. In the conscious universe Dr. Radin makes a compelling case for what we intuitively already know and does so without bias, or agenda. If you are searching for the truth I highly recommend this book.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE!

    Finally the public is blessed with a book that clears up previous misconceptions,while clearly and intelligently stating the truth behind psychic phenomena. Material of this nature was long overdue, no doubt one of the best books of it's kind. It comes strongly reccomended to every member of the public especially hard-core sceptics who pasionately preach about the non-existence of psychic phenomena and wollow in ignorance, thus failing to learn the truth due to their strong prejudice against anything beyond their understandind, or anything which threatens their biased scientific or religious ideas. Read this book and learn the truth, Dean Radin's work is that of a genius. As for the the review written by the so called 'scientist and data analyst' .I reccomend you do not listen to their foul response. Their attempt to classify Radin's work as unscientific is absolutely ridiculous, they lacks the knowledge and position to make such claims.
