Japanese, Portuguese, Latvian and Romanian editions are available. Preface If you do not get schwindlig [dizzy] sometimes when you think about these things then you have not really understood it [quantum theory]. When you drill down into the core of even the most solid-looking material, separateness dissolves. All that remains, like the smile of the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, are relationships extending curiously throughout space and time. These connections were predicted by quantum theory and were called "spooky action at a distance" by Albert Einstein.
They accepted that the microscopic world of elementary particles could become curiously entangled, but those entangled states were assumed to be fleeting and have no practical consequences for the world as we experience it.
That view is rapidly changing. Scientists are now finding that there are ways in which the effects of microscopic entanglements "scale up" into our macroscopic world. Entangled connections between carefully prepared atomic-sized objects can persist over many miles. There are theoretical descriptions showing how tasks can be accomplished by entangled groups without the members of the group communicating with each other in any conventional way.
Some scientists suggest that the remarkable degree of coherence displayed in living systems might depend in some fundamental way on quantum effects like entanglement. Others suggest that conscious awareness is caused or related in some important way to entangled particles in the brain.
Some even propose that the entire universe is a single, self-entangled object. What if these speculations are correct? What would human experience be like in such an interconnected universe? Would we occasionally have numinous feelings of connectedness with loved ones at a distance? If we did have such experiences, could they be due to real information that somehow bypassed the usual sensory channels, or are such reports mere delusions?
Can psychic or "psi" experiences be studied by science, or are they beyond the reach of rational understanding? These are the questions explored in this book. For centuries, scientists assumed that everything can be explained by mechanisms analogous to clockworks. When the fabric of reality is examined very closely, nothing resembling clockworks can be found.
Tug on a dangling loose end from this fabric of reality, and the whole cloth twitches, instantly, throughout all space and time. Science is at the very earliest stages of understanding entanglement, and there is much yet to learn. No longer are psi experiences regarded as rare human talents, divine gifts, or "powers" that magically transcend ordinary physical boundaries.
Instead, psi becomes an unavoidable consequence of living in an interconnected, entangled physical reality. What is new is that Western science is slowly beginning to realize that some elements of that ancient lore might be correct.
Of course, adopting a new ontology is not to be taken lightly.
Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality

Parapsychology[ edit ] Radin was elected President of the Parapsychological Association in , , , and and has published a number of articles and parapsychological papers supporting the existence of paranormal phenomena, as well as two books directed to a popular audience: The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds. Park wrote "No proof of psychic phenomena is ever found. 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 began their experiments. French recounts that the medium Florence Cook was caught in acts of trickery and two of the Fox sisters confessed to fraud, but that Radin did not mention this fact. Wilson and William R. 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". Good in Nature.
Sep 07, Karl rated it it was amazing In his book, Entangled Minds, Dean Radin blends his experience as a scientist with his sincere desire to present readers with easily understood and timely information about quantum mechanics and Psi research Psi as it is used here can be defined as, A means by which information can be gained from a distance without the use of the ordinary senses. As science progressed from Newtonian physics into the world of quantum physics in the early s, many of the traditional views and beliefs that were held for hundreds of years started to be re-examined. In spite of assertions made by people like physicist Albert Michelson, the first American to win a Noble prize, who claimed that the laws of physics had all been discovered by the end of the 19th century , we see that the five basic assumptions in classical physics: reality, locality, causality, continuity, and determinism are now being questioned under the new rules of quantum physics. Non-locality, entanglement, the Observer effect, and even retroactivity are terms now being used that at one time would have been considered preposterous, nonsensical and even heretical.
