Publisher's Summary

The chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) turns a critical eye toward such practices as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis. Are such powers really possible? Science says yes.
According to noted scientist and best-selling author of The Conscious Universe, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice.
But wait, aren't things like ESP and telepathy just wishful thinking and flights of the imagination? Not according to the author, who worked on the US government's top secret psychic espionage program known as Stargate. Radin has spent the last 40 years conducting controlled experiments that demonstrate that thoughts are things, that we can sense others' emotions and intentions from a distance, that intuition is more powerful than we thought, and that we can tap into the power of intention (think The Secret, only on a more realistic and scientific level). These dormant powers can help us to lead more interesting and fulfilling lives.
Beginning with a brief history of magic over the centuries (what was called magic 2,000 years ago is turning out to be scientific fact today), a review of the scientific evidence for magic, a series of simple but effective magical techniques (the key is mental focus, something elite athletes know a lot about), Radin then offers a vision of a scientifically informed magic and explains why magic will play a key role in frontiers of science.

History & current changes in Consciousness science

This was an enjoyable listen. Dean Radin has a dry sense of humor that pops up here and there, and I burst out laughing a couple of times.

Many people I had learned about in history were tied together in this book in a most interesting pathway weaving through time and humanity. The book made their lives and work more meaningful to me.

The various science experiments with people were really interesting. The statistical probabilities were too. One thing that stood out was something to do with how there are always exceptional people in a population, and the speculation that there are potentially 7,000 people with exceptional abilities on this planet now reminded me of something that was mentioned in one of Robert Monroe's books, I think, of a similar idea to think about.

There were many fascinating ideas and scientific results throughout, and the author's wry tellings of the past and current scientific barriers to the study or even consideration of Consciousness is interesting too. It is nice to see that change is happening.

This book could have been too scholarly, because there's a lot of information in it, but somehow there is an undercurrent of humor that made it easy listening.

Narrator: Very good.

perfectly nuanced in every way.

Sprinkled with real science, occult history, personality, humor. Perfect for those of us who are consciously at the edge of reality and about to evolve into who we really are.

PSI=MAGICK

An enjoyable and fascinating book that provides insight and evidence for magic/psi being more than chance but not much evidence for being able to develop these abilities to perform miracles.
