Dean Radin on The Other Side of Truth

On August 1st, author and scientist Dean Radin joined me for a discussion about Radin’s previous books, The Conscious Universe and Entangled Minds, as well as his new book Supernormal: Science, Yoga and the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities. The conversation began with a bit of background about Dr. Radin, as he described how he became interested in studying psi phenomena and outlined the basic conclusions he has been able to draw after twenty years of research. This served as a starting point for an examination of the philosophical, moral and spiritual implications of quantum entanglement in terms of consciousness, as well as our focus on the individual over the collective. The discussion then turned to the nature of modern institutionalized science, and how it could be oriented to serve a broader range of human interests than simple profit, as well as the need for scientists to have a better grounding in, and appreciation of, the humanities. We concluded our conversation by looking at the relationship between super-normal mental abilities, from telepathy to precognition, and Eastern mystical and spiritual traditions, as outlined in Supernormal.
