"From the Einstein of consciousness research comes a work that could change forever how we view the nature of human consciousness and our origins and destiny." -- Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words
"Dean Radin brings parapsychology into mainstream science. The revolution has begun." -- Deepak Chopra, author of The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life
About the Author
Dean Radin, Ph.D., is Laboratory Director at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California. He worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories and GTE Laboratories on advanced telecommunications systems, and for nearly two decades he has conducted research on psychic phenomena in academia (Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, University of Nevada), and in three Silicon Valley think tanks (Interval Research Corporation, Boundary Institute, and SRI International). At SRI he served as a scientist on a highly classified program investigating psi phenomena for the U.S. government. Radin is the author of The Conscious Universe, which was a #1 parapsychology bestseller at Amazon.com. It also won the 1997 Book Award from The Scientific and Medical Network, a Best Book Award from The Anomalist, and it has been translated into eight languages.

Radin refers to minds as "entangled" because of his own suspicion that psi results from what is called "quantum entanglement", where two particles become associated with one another so that even if separated in space, the activity of one directly affects the activity of another. As more evidence has been gathered in, entanglement has been demonstrated to be widespread, rather than rare, and to have implications outside the quantum world. Our neurons may co-operate with quantum physics to produce effects such as psi. Still, this really can't be anything more than a hunch, and I'm not sure Radin's explanation has anything in particular to commend it over other theoretical frameworks (i.e. Sheldrake's "morphic resonance"), though there's no evidence against it, either.
Still, Radin's book is exceedingly valuable because of the way in which it compiles so much psi research in so many different categories and explains it in terms that can be understood by the general reader.
The quantum field seems to be more and more strange and exciting the more I read. It explains alot of the unknown but leaves more questions in its wake. This book at least addresses the strange and wonderful and considers the possibly that classical physics is not only wrong but way wrong.
Many of us have become frustrated by the overuse of metaphor by many writers: "Mystics said almost the same thing as quantum physics, so that proves mystical insights," or worse yet "physics says that everything is energy, so that means that we are all energy." People have sometimes taken rare phenomena occurring at the subatomic level and extrapolated from them to make extraordinary claims about human interactions, little realizing that many quantum phenomena cannot occur at the level of a whole organism. Dean avoids such risky approximations and has instead written a precise account of experimental work that strongly supports the existence of parapsychological phenomena, and has created an imaginative model to account for it. It has become quite well known that Carl Jung and the Nobel Laureate Wolfgang Pauli were not only interested in extrasensory phenomena, but also believed that a synthesis of physics and psychology was both possible and necessary. Dean has taken their insights, and many others, run with them, and created a remarkable synthesis.
From personal experience and a thorough review of the literature, I am in no doubt that Dean's central hypothesis - that our minds are interlinked - is absolutely correct. If enough people were to realize and understand the implications of this interconnectedness, our world would be transformed in an instant. For this is no academic exercise: these are insights that cut straight to the heart of our personal relationships, the interactions of businesses and governments, and even such moral and ethical issues as free will and the consumption of animals.
The book is well written, and interspersed with a great many illustrations. I hope that it is extremely widely read, and that we all ponder the implications of what Dean has to say.
