The ESP Enigma: The Scientific Case for Psychic Phenomena

By Diane Hennacy Powell

A progressive clinical rationalization of psychic phenomena and the character of human attention.

Although a lot is referred to now concerning the mind, particularly little has been made up our minds approximately the place attention comes from: what's the resource of the "I" in our inner monologue? How does whatever as nonmaterial as cognizance come up from whatever fabric just like the mind? Dr. Diane Powell, a Johns Hopkins–trained neuroscientist, has brilliantly reassessed the that means and nature of attention through exploring study at the workings of psychic phenomena.

Over the earlier few a long time a number of well-designed and conscientiously supervised experiments have documented the lifestyles of telepathic interconnection, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, and out-of-body studies. Mainstream technological know-how has principally missed those facts simply because all of them defy the conventional version of realization as being exclusively the made from mind chemistry.

Building from those experiments, Powell constructs a brand new concept of realization. I ntegrating options from physics, neuroscience, and different disciplines, she bargains an insightful and exciting clarification of ESP, provocatively claiming that the lifestyles of psychic talents expands our knowing and appreciation of cognizance. Psychic talents also are in line with findings in smooth physics: for instance, psychokinesis signifies that cognizance is one of those strength box, whereas precognition means that the earlier, current, and destiny exist simultaneously.

Eye-opening in its conclusions and interesting in its implications, The ESP Enigma will problem your preconceived notions and extend your mind.
