REVIEW OF "LIMITLESS MIND" by Russell Targ, reviewed by Keith Van Vliet
As a scientist, Targ is able to draw on a comprehensive knowledge of physics to give authority to what otherwise might be taken lightly. His background includes working in a traditional aviation corporate structure, which he left to pursue the field which is the subject of the book, remote viewing. He states, "My personal goal has been, for many years, to turn a rocket scientist into a human being."
His additional education covers much material from the east, which he weaves throughout the material.
In 1972 he co-founded with Dr. Hal Puthoff the Stanford Research Institute program to scientifically investigate remote viewing, which he continued for over two decades.
He begins by introducing the term "nonlocality," a scientific term that my spell checker did not recognize. It means the separation of cause and effect over both time and space., which violates traditional scientific laws and causes great consternation in science. His investigations did much to attract the attention of colleagues and bring official recognition that this was something science had to deal with sooner or later. Although Targ does not dwell on this aspect overly long, he quotes Voltaire as writing, "It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.
The actual experiments he conducted used people known to have some psychic ability, but throughout the book he insists that this power is natural, and possessed by anyone who is of a mind to practice. The descriptions given by the viewer were accurate well beyond any estimates of chance guessing, and were double blind, where the subject site was not known by the interviewer.

I found Limitless Mind to be an exceptional introduction to the study of consciousness and psychic abilities. The book describes many studies relating to fascinating topics such as remote viewing, distance/spiritual healing, precognition, and the fluidity of time and space. It describes the theory that time and space are "nonlocal." This theory suggests that it is an illusion that we occupy a specific area of space at a specific time. But in fact "each region of space-time contains information about every other point in space-time" (8). This is to "suggest that all of space-time is available to your consciousness, right where you are" (5). Or in other words "the whole universe is in some way enfolded in everything, and that each thing is enfolded in the whole" (8). And this would explain the phenomena of remote-viewing where a person describes a place or an object from a distance in which that person could have no sensory perception of the object. In remote viewing you're simply clearing your mind of all the "mental noise" (thoughts, memories, sounds, etc...) constantly running through your head thereby tapping into that part of you that is connected with the universe. Then by focusing your attention on a particular place or object you can access any point in space-time and bring it to your awareness.

However remote viewing is only one area the book touches on. It also delves into how you can use this power for intuitive medical diagnosis, spiritual healing, and most importantly discovering who you are.

Filled with scientific research studies supporting his claims, helpful guides to using these hidden abilities yourself, and written in an easy to read style this book is a must have for anyone interested in expanding their awareness and discovering who they really are!

Russell Targ has a fascinating background, as one of the original founders of the government Remote Viewing program. Back in the 1970s, he and Hal Puthof put together experiments in psychic vision that very much interested the US military. Both men were at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) and got government contracts to test "viewers" - psychics who could see events and places ("targets) in their mind. They developed a set of protocols for these experiments and successfully demonstrated that this could be done. In Limitless Mind, Russell Targ discusses those experiments, which were to influence his later work and eventually become once again his main profession. At present, he sponsors seminars on remote viewing, often working with Dr. Jane Katra, with whom he has written several books.

This book is a combination of information on how anyone can try remote viewing, and how work with remote viewing led the author to related activities, mainly distant healing. Targ repeatedly explains that remote viewing is not specifically a spiritual activity, but it led him in the direction of further inquiry into the nature of consciousness and that led him into spirituality. He came to believe that man is more than his material body, that consciousness transcends our physical senses. Consciousness can move beyond place and even beyond time to actually take in remote locations and events. Targ became interested in how healers can affect the bodily health of another person, noting that many can affect people who are in a distant location, without seeing or touching them. How is this possible, unless consciousness is not local?

Information on how to do remote viewing is available in other books and websites, but Targ's preferred methods all involve working with a partner.
