"Much of the wonder and awe of traditional religions comes from stories of miracles which are used as dramatic illustrations of divine power. From a parapsychological point of view, the great religious scriptures are encyclopedic repositories of stories about psi efforts--telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, mental healing, and mind-matter interactions," writes Dean Radin in this book. Unexpected information and energy exchanges have been seen as part of the deep interconnectedness espoused by physicists, theologians, and mystics.

The author, who is director of the Consciousness Research Laboratory at the University of Nevada, presents evidence for psi in independently replicated controlled experiments. Radin challenges classical scientists to wake up to the quantum interconnectedness of the universe. In addition, he presents anecdotal evidence for feeling someone else's experience at a distance, for the validity of intuitive hunches, and for psychokinesis. The last chapters in the book spin out the implications of psi for biology, psychology, sociology, philosophy, and religion.
