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. Entangled Minds is Dean Radin’s second book on the science of psychic phenomena (or, more generally, “psi”). As with his first book, The Conscious Universe. Entangled Minds by Dean Radin – Is everything connected? Can we sense what’s happening to loved ones thousands of miles away? Why are we sometimes.

Thursday, July 07, Retiring this blog, sort of. I have pretty much retired this blog and have switched to posting shorter notes to Facebook and Twitter. Writing a blog was occasionally fun but ultimately not worth the time or effort given the limited number of followers. While this blog had received overpage views, after working full time on writing journal articles, books, and grant proposals, and conducting experiments, and being editor of a journal, and giving 20 to 50 presentations and interviews a year, I don’t have much energy left to write a blog as well.
This site will remain online for historical purposes, but look for my posts on various social media for ongoing updates.
And look for my latest book, which I’m working on now, in Spring of Posted by Dean Radin at Monday, June 30, Sometimes it takes a comedian to state the obvious. By comedian John Oliver: It’s too easy to become cynical about things and that’s not fair and it doesn’t rean. And in fact, there is hope for the world. And it is in the form of Wikipedia. Now Wikipedia will save us all. I found this out when recently a friend of mine emailed me and he said that someone had created a Wikipedia entry about me.
I didn’t realize this was true, so I looked it up. And like most Wikipedia entries, it came with some flamboyant surprises, not least amongst them my name.
Because in it it said my name was John Cornelius Oliver. Now my middle name is not Cornelius because I did not die in But obviously, I wanted to be. Cornelius is an incredible name. And that’s when it entngled me –the way the world is now, fiction has become more attractive than fact. That is why Wikipedia is such a vital resource.
It’s a way of us completely rewriting our history to give our children and our children’s children a much better history to grow up with.

We seem to have no intention of providing them with a future. Let’s at least give them a past. It is in a very real sense the least we can do. Posted by Dean Radin at 3: Watch more videos on iai.
Friday, April 18, Levitation in Paris.
While walking about and enjoying the city on the way to the Arc De Triomphe, I passed a levitating man. This was a nice synchronicity given the topic of my book, which just won the Silver Naulitus Book Award.
This is a major book award ” for exceptional literary contributions to spiritual growth, conscious living, high-level wellness, green values, responsible leadership and positive social change as well as to the worlds of art, creativity and inspirational reading for children, radon and young adults.
Monday, April 14, Feeling entanglwd future meta-analysis.
Entangled Minds | Book by Dean Radin | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster
It was called ” craziness, pure craziness” by life-long critic Ray Hyman. Within days the news media was announcing that it was all just a big mistake. But the bottom line in science, and the key factor that trumps hysterical criticism, is whether the claimed effect can be repeated by kinds investigators.
If it can, then monds critics need to rethink their position. Now we have an answer to the question about replication. The key phrase in the abstract reads: A Bayesian analysis yielded a Bayes Factor of 7.
We do not need precognition to predict that the new meta-analysis will not influence the critics’ beliefs. Their beliefs, like those of most people, rest upon a naive realist i. While common sense is good enough for most basic activities of daily life not including an understanding of how television, smartphones, GPSs, and computers workit is not sufficient to account for the larger reality revealed by science.
Nor is it capable of perceiving the far stranger and vaster realities that patiently wait for us far beyond the reach of today’s science.
Update April 25, As I predicted, this meta-analysis shows no signs of influencing critics’ beliefs. Instead, new objections are invented. The latest is that we shouldn’t believe this analysis because Bem was one of the authors and he has a vested interest in the outcome. But based on that logic we are also justified in ignoring any meta-analysis published by avowed skeptics because they have a vested interest in their outcomes.
Do vested interests pro or con influence these analyses? So is it even possible to craft a truly neutral assessment? Probably, but it would take some effort because the published reports would have to be carefully scrubbed clean so the analysts wouldn’t know what the topic of their analysis is all about.
And somehow other analysts would need to thoroughly search all published and unpublished sources to find every relevant study ever conducted. Update August 14, And now some critics are claiming that the most sophisticated usage of desn itself is flawed, throwing into doubt everything published in psychology, biology, medicine, ecology, and all other disciplines that rely on meta-analysis for assessing replication of small effects. This is a “move the goal-post” eentangled When evidence is not to your liking, change the rules so it’s no longer offensive.

Now the only acceptable evidence is based on experimental designs that are publicly preregistered. Why any critic thinks that will solve the problem is beyond me.
Thursday, April 10, No one pays any attention. Do scientists pay attention to psi research? Some skeptics would have you believe that this topic is so far from the mainstream that no one takes it seriously. What do article impact metrics indicate? The average v iew of a journal article is typically a few hundred, and that’s for a very popular paper.
This paper has 47, views so far. I’ve found a similar response every time I’ve given a talk to an academic or technical audience. While opinions differ on how to interpret psi data and vigorous debates are common, there is no question that scientists and scholars are interested. And isn’t that what a healthy science is all about — the excitement of exploring the frontiers of knowledge? As Gandhi famously said, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
For the sake of curiosity, I wanted to see how my own scientific impact metric would fare against that of the average scientist. Friday, April 04, Now it becomes clear. As I’ve previously mentionedWikipedia has a problem with topics that fall outside a tightly constrained, naive view of reality.
That there are different opinions about such topics as homeopathy, parapsychology, or energy medicine, is not surprising. But it is disappointing and on the verge of abetting libel when it comes to biographies of living persons when an otherwise useful encyclopedia maintains a policy of presenting such topics with a systematic negative bias. Attempts to edit these articles to provide more balance are summarily ignored, and even neutral, well-intentioned editors have been banned.
Articles with citations only from unreliable, uninformed, or cynical sources might be useful for promoting favored ideologies, but only in an Orwellian world could such an encyclopedia be considered anything but a work of fiction.
I used to wonder why those in charge of Wikipedia would allow such biases to persist. I imagined that they were simply uninformed at how a small group of enthusiastic fact-deniers had highjacked the system.
But now something has happened that illuminates the problem. The response by Wales was as follows: No, you have to be kidding me. Every single person minnds signed this petition needs to go back to check their premises and think harder about what it means to be honest, factual, truthful.
Wikipedia’s policies around this kind of thing are exactly spot-on and correct. If you can get your work published in respectable scientific journals – that is to say, if you can produce evidence through replicable scientific experiments, then Wikipedia will cover it appropriately.
What we won’t do is pretend that the work of lunatic charlatans is the equivalent of “true scientific discourse”. Thursday, March 13, Psychophysical interactions with a double-slit interference pattern. Psychophysical interactions with a double-slit interference pattern. Physics EssaysVolume This line of research focuses on experimentally testing John von Neumann’s and others interpretation of the quantum measurement problem QMP.
So far we’ve conducted 15 experiments and have reported the results of ddan of them. Overall the evidence is consistent with entanglsd Neumann’s proposal that consciousness is involved in the behavior of quantum systems.
Note that consistency doesn’t necessarily mean that von Neumann’s approach is the only valid interpretation. Abstract Previously reported experiments suggested that interference patterns generated by a double-slit optical system were perturbed by a psychophysical i. Three new experiments were conducted to further investigate this phenomenon. The first study consisted of 50 half-hour test sessions where participants concentrated their attention-toward or —away from a double-slit system located 3 meters away.
The spectral magnitude and phase associated with the double-slit component of the interference pattern were compared between the two attention conditions, and the combined results provided evidence for an kinds.
One hundred control sessions using the same equipment, protocol and analysis, but without participants present, showed no effect.
A Fraunhofer diffraction model was used to explore various interpretations of this outcome. This analysis suggested that the distribution of light between the two slits and the horizontal stability of the laser beam were the principle components of the optical system that were perturbed.
