You mean this is for real? But this is true of many well-tested scientific theories that we take for granted: In spite of all the tests devised by parapsychologists like Jahn and Radin, and huge amounts of data collected over a period of many years, the results are no more convincing today than when they gadin their experiments.
Therefore, as ofUniversities, governments and businesses were and had been actively, if secretively, investigating psi; the big players and the big money thought it real and possibly powerful. This sort of thing seems to say a lot about the mindset of a typical skeptic. Of course, I could be wrong.
Retrieved from ” https: Thanks for telling us about the problem. Radin also explains in detail why he thinks conventional scientists have so vigorously resisted usually by refusing to examine it the evidence.
May 22, Harrison rated it really liked it Shelves: Open Preview See a Problem? These basic ideas are what the book should have focused on, because those are the main concerns of lay people, for whom the book — kniverse its rudimentary and overindulgent explanations — was obviously intended.
A very interesting read. Still, I have to remember that it is a study, some research work. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It’s strange, but he manages to sap just about all of the drama out of the proceedings by his mechanical account of the same statistics in each experiment, the same criticisms raised by skeptics, and te another reminder of how these experiments univese controvert the crticisms. I really liked the book and now have a better understanding of what has been done scientifically with psych An outstanding book that lays out the information on psychological phenomena.
A Critical Thinker’s Toolkit. During my studies to become a psychologist I had the o Most of the information in this book is wrong, wrongly interpreted or misleading. In the introduction to his book, Radin claims that there is a predictable four-stage sequence in the history of science that governs the acceptance of new ideas.
Shadish writing in Psychological Bulletin criticized claims made by Radin and his associates that human minds can psychically influence random number generators, saying that parapsychologists “need to go beyond statistics and explain how the mind might influence a computer, then test that prediction”.
The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds. Actually ,, going to let it sit and reread the last two chapters again. This stage can last from years to centuries, depending on how much the idea challenges conventional wisdom.
I recommend that anyone interested in the concept of consciousness as it relates to physics and the physical world consider this book. Do any of them fit the picture Radin paints?
As an engaging, evenly-paced book, it fails pretty solidly. Carroll stated that Radin had ignored “the many hoaxes and frauds that dot the landscape in the history of psi research. A claim should be accepted or rejected only if the evidence warrants it.
Radin makes it clear that though we know definitively that psi perception exists, we don’t know how it works. That is not a huge difference, except when viewed as odds against, which run into the millions to one, or at the confidence factor, which is very high indeed.
Does he provide a cogent argument that the mind does things that can be better explained by positing an additional entity, a non-material consciousness? This IS an excellent book, very balanced I think, particularly impressive in the way it “meta-analyzes” all the research that has been done through the years, and is able to place the significance of the various studies in context of statistical analysis.
There are other choices he made in analysis, especially with respect to the RNGs, that were just mystifying, and it struck me as strange that he would spend so much time on the minutiae of each experiment but neglect to explain basic reasoning behind his analysis. Radin, however, has no doubts. Is the mind merely a mechanistic, information-processing bundle of neurons?
The Conscious Universe: The Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena
Confronted with a large number even only at the time of writing, which is of meta-analyses, not to say thousands of repeated experiments, that state statistical significance of positive results in precognition, psychokinesis, clairvoyance and other psi phenomena, how should a sensible reader react?
Radin’s is best for the data and the sections on psychology and metaphysics, but overall, I think Broughton has written a clearer and better introduction to the topic.
Dean Radin – Wikipedia
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in the subject. Radin seems not to have much radim in what skeptics have to say, however. On the other hand, it is true that parapsychologists have come a long way in responding to the criticisms of skeptics and that their work has been published in a several mainstream scientific journals.
Quotes from The Conscious Uni Get the book and dip in and out of it New to me at the time of reading was the how data collected in various independent studies can be compiled to produce evidentially powerful results. Radin first describes the experiments, the results and the statistical analyses, then tries to comscious the possible reactions of believers and skeptics with arguments that straddle between histo Confronted with a large number even only at the time of writing, which is of meta-analyses, not to say thousands of repeated experiments, that state statistical significance of positive results in precognition, psychokinesis, clairvoyance and other psi phenomena, how should a sensible reader react?
To ask other readers questions about The Conscious Universeplease consckous up. Stage 3 begins when the mainstream realizes that the idea is not only important, but its effects are much stronger and more pervasive than previously imagined. Highly recommended for the Brief Review Physicist-turned-parapsychologist Dean Radin demonstrates in almost painful detail that based on a combination of rigorous laboratory testing and equally rigorous meta-analysis, the existence of psi phenomena telepathy, precogniton, psychokinetics, etc.
