Is everything connected? Can we sense what's happening to loved ones thousands of miles away? Why are we sometimes certain of a caller's identity the instant the phone rings? Do intuitive hunches contain information about future events? Is it possible to perceive without the use of the ordinary senses?

Many people believe that such "psychic phenomena" are rare talents or divine gifts. Others don't believe they exist at all. But the latest scientific research shows that these phenomena are both real and widespread, and are an unavoidable consequence of the interconnected, entangled physical reality we live in.

Albert Einstein called entanglement "spooky action at a distance" -- the way two objects remain connected through time and space, without communicating in any conventional way, long after their initial interaction has taken place. Could a similar entanglement of minds explain our apparent psychic abilities? Dean Radin, senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, believes it might.

In this illuminating book, Radin shows how we know that psychic phenomena such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis are real, based on scientific evidence from thousands of controlled lab tests. Radin surveys the origins of this research and explores, among many topics, the collective premonitions of 9/11. He reveals the physical reality behind our uncanny telepathic experiences and intuitive hunches, and he debunks the skeptical myths surrounding them. Entangled Minds sets the stage for a rational, scientific understanding of psychic experience.

I gave up on this book. There were some very interesting points and discussions, but then it kind of lingered on how bad scientists are and how stupid scientists supposedly think "normal" people are ... Read full review

This is a great book to understand the science behind the Noetics with out having to take a basic physics class I began to research this new trend in science and found this book very helpful.Quantum entanglement is a bit over my head and this author made it much easier to get the basics of noetics theory which is quite similar to more esoteric writings on quantum reality. We now are developing tools to study chaos theory and its impact on what most would call paranormal woo woo stuff. Turns out that we can measure thoughts and can indeed send thoughts over long distance or receive them as well. We can map these interractions thus proving it does exist just not in the dimensions we are familiar with,.

About the author (2009)

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.
