Looking to the underlying aspects of the mind, the unconscious, for clues to the underlying nature of the universe, Eisenbud finds there evidence suggesting that psi, the unacknowledged sign of connections between individual beings and events, is the force regulating and controlling the functioning of the ...

Overview

“In the true spirit of a worthy descendant of Freud, Jule Eisenbud boldly takes on some of the most far-reaching questions facing humanity and offers a logically compelling theory that is equal to the questions in its scope and audacity. Looking to the underlying aspects of the mind, the unconscious, for clues to the underlying nature of the universe, Eisenbud finds there evidence suggesting that psi, the unacknowledged sign of connections between individual beings and events, is the force regulating and controlling the functioning of the universe and thus giving it the predictability observed by scientists.”

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In my opinion, Jule Eisenbud is parapsychology’s premier living theoretician. Currently, he is the only person in the field today attempting a truly global and systematic analysis of paranormal phenomena and their place in nature. Or, perhaps I should say he is the only person competently undertaking the taskÉ He is brilliant, deep, very sophisticated conceptually, and–whether on target or not–always interesting and stimulating.
- Dr. Stephen Braude, Department of Philosophy, University of Maryland
