  • The ESP Enigma: The Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena

    Although much is now known about the brain, relatively little has been determined about where consciousness comes from. Dr. Diane Powell, a Johns Hopkins-trained neuroscientist, has brilliantly reassessed the meaning and nature of consciousness by exploring research on the workings of psychic phenomena.

    Overall

    Like a crash course in neuroscience for the layman, that includes an inspiring account of how powerful the human mind is and can be. It could almost be a beginners manual to "freeing the mind". The first half describes the myraid scientific and government studies that have been done on the mind and phsycic phenomina (near-death exp, pre-cognition, out-of-body exp., future memory, remote viewing, ect.). The second half describes the most current theories of the mind and how its newly "discovered" functions have brought us closer to explaining, understanding, and even validating much of the phsycic phenomena decribed in the first half of the book. Some of the most incredible revelations to me were: the theory of consciousness as a force, the Theory of Everything & String Theory, LIGHT, Resonance, the Zero Point Field, the arguments for more than 3 dimensions, the fractality of universe, and the underlying fabric of the universe as a mass storage field.
    I am going to listen to it again right away! Its the most interesting and educational material I have ever heard - as far as I think I know....right now.
