Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
What Jung identified as the collective unconscious, Emerson labeled "the Oversoul" and physicist David Bohm named "quantum interconnectedness" is here called the "non-local mind, or community of spirit" by Lockheed staff scientist Targ (The Mind Race) and spiritual healer Katra. From Targ's experiments for the CIA in "ESPionage" to his curing of his own metastasized cancer, the authors explore a variety of evidence for a level of consciousness that includes "remote viewing" and spiritual healing. Their individual views and experiences complement one another as Targ relates numerous scientific experiments seemingly proving the existence of psi, or psychic abilities, and Katra tells her personal story of being "called" to spiritual healingagainst her will and intellectual beliefsin a dream. ESP, clairvoyance, mental telepathy, precognition, intuition, hypnosis, prayer, therapeutic touch and the differences between "psychic," "energy" and "spiritual" healings are all explored here in the light of "mind-to-mind," "mind-to-body" and "mind-to-matter" connections. Seeking to legitimize and expand the study of psi, the authors envision a future "Psychic Internet," to which "we are all already hooked up. We just have to decide to pay attention." This provocative book should help readers do just that. (Feb.)
