“By Dean Radin
This myth-shattering book explains the evidence for the veracity of psychic phenomena, uniting the teachings of mystics, the theories of quantum physics, and the latest in high-tech experiments. With painstaking research and deft, engaging prose, Radin dispels the misinformation and superstition that have clouded the understanding of scientists and laypeople alike concerning a host of fascinating oddities. Psychokinesis, remote viewing, prayer, jinxes, and more–all are real, all have been scientifically proven, and the proof is in this book.
Radin draws from his own work at Princeton, Stanford Research Institute, and Fortune 500 companies, as well as his research for the U.S. government, to demonstrate the surprising extent to which the truth of psi has already been tacitly acknowledged and exploited. The Conscious Universe also sifts the data for tantalizing hints of how mind and matter are linked. Finally, Radin takes a bold look ahead, to the inevitable social, economic, academic, and spiritual consequences of the mass realization that mind and matter can influence each other without having physical contact.”
Common Era contains articles on a wide range of religious topics culled from such sources as Religious Studies News, Common Boundary, Tricycle, and New Age Journal. Authors such as Bill Moyers and Matthew Fox write thoughtfully about subjects ranging from global ethics to sexuality and women’s spirituality. James Gordon ‘s extremely interesting piece examines the tragic misunderstandings of Waco and the role of religious groups; Michael Sells explores compellingly the issue of religious genocide in Bosnia. This is a far-ranging collection with many provocative essays. By the same token, Saga includes writings by many of the leading authors on mythology, such as Robert Bly, Sam Keen, Marion Woodman, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and James Hillman. Their work has been culled from Parabola, Mythos Journal, and Noetic Science Review. In this volume the reader will find Toni Morrison’s Nobel lecture, an interview with Ursula LeGuin, Christina Downing’s analysis of Demeter and Persephone, and David Miller’s analysis of myth and religion. Both volumes are strongly recommended for collections on religion and myth.?Gail Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology Lib., Alfred
