This is a serious book on a strange and unusual subject, that of the author’s researches as a sociologist into psychokinetic phenomena (PK). His researches began in 1982 when he befriended members of a PK group in the USA called the Society for Research on Rapport and Telekinesis (SORRAT). The members of this group included the two principal characters in the book, Ed Cox and Tom Richards. Both were academics, one retired and the other teaching. SORRAT’S PK experiments were being monitored by the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man (FRNM) at Duke University.

To this end a series of apparently controlled experiments took place, which included the use of a sealed mini-lab. If there was any activity in the mini-lab, a motion-censor triggered a movie camera. Other activities involved writing letters to entities who had announced themselves at séances, which were witnessed by McClenon. The entities identified themselves by laboriously tapping out their names (one tap for A, two taps for B etc). The taps were unexplained noises whose origin and loci were hard to determine.

Dean Radin: Are Psychic Phenomena Real? | Telepathy, Precognition, Psychokinesis | (Supernormal)

Published on 12 May 2016

Are some of the superpowers described in ancient legends, science fiction, and comic books actually real?

Telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition–are these inherent supernormal mental powers?

Is it really possible to perceive another person’s thoughts, influence objects with our minds, and envision future events?

In this episode, I interview Dr. Dean Radin. He is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. For three decades he has been engaged in frontiers research on the nature of consciousness. He was featured in a New York Times Magazine article; and he has appeared on dozens of television shows ranging from the BBC’s Horizon and PBS’s Closer to Truth to Oprah and Larry King Live. He has given over 350 interviews and talks.

Dean is author or coauthor of over 250 technical and popular articles, three dozen book chapters, and three books including the award-winning The Conscious Universe, Entangled Minds, and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award winner, Supernormal: Science, Yoga, and the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities.

Gauld, A., & Cornell, A. D. (1979). Poltergeists. Routledge Kegan & Paul.

Leading study from parapsychologists Gauld and Cornell first published in 1979. The researchers performed a cluster analysis on 500 published cases of hauntings and poltergeists spanning from the 9th through the 20th centuries. Of the total, 328 were poltergeist cases and 172 were haunting cases. Hauntings involved recurrent phenomena that were place-centered, persisting on/off for several years, often occurring at night. The principal activity in hauntings was “imitative noises.” They took issue with conventional notions that poltergeist activity mainly arises from psychokinesis in living persons. (sponsored)

Mysterious Universe Podcast – Dean Radin


Renowned parapsychologist Dean Radin joins us this week to discuss Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe. 

 Radin’s latest work reveals the overwhelming scientific evidence for a genuine but hidden power that resides within each individual. A power tied to our consciousness. A power that makes phenomena like telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis not only possible, but inevitable. 

If you get it, run with it. If you don’t such is life. Have a wonderful week. We are way more than mundane.

CIA Document Confirms Reality Of ‘Special Humans’ Able To Do ‘Impossible’ Things

Cases of mind influencing matter have been reported throughout history and across many cultures, more specifically in regard to ‘supernormal’ abilities which include telepathy, psychokinesis, and other phenomena that lie within the realms of parapsychology. This is evident in ancient literature, from the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras, to Jesus, Moses, Milarepa,  Mohammed and more.

Modern day evidence is suggesting that these abilities are much more than folklore.
